‘Dog’ may have last laugh

'Little' play preems on B'way

At the Planet Hollywood preem party for Broadway’s “The Little Dog Laughed,” the star of the fete was real-life gay prostitute Mike Jones, most famous for having outed evangelist Ted Haggard.

Jones said he could relate to Douglas Carter Beane’s tale of a movie star and his hustler boyfriend. “It was like watching my life unfold,” he said. “I could relate: $200 per date is what I charged Haggard.”

A few semi-famous actors have come out of the closet since Beane opened his comedy Off Broadway a year ago. But he’s not worried that its story of a gay movie star is passe.

“TV character actors are the Rosa Parks of gays,” the scribe said of those aforementioned minor homosexuals. “When a major romantic leading man comes out of the closet, then I’ll fret.”
