the shape of water creature

Until The Shape of Water begins floating into theaters next month, the details of the mysterious fish creature and romantic interest at the center of Guillermo del Toro‘s film will remain mostly in the depths of the acclaimed filmmaker’s mind.

But the sexy fish man played by Doug Jones is steadily emerging from the black lagoon of del Toro’s imagination in the form of the filmmaker’s tweets, where he explained (in amazing detail) how this creature was designed.

Star Trek Discovery Gay Characters

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get personal, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: how Star Trek: Discovery, and series star Anthony Rapp, feel more necessary than ever following the allegations against Kevin Spacey.)

Lt. Stamets of the starship Discovery has taken on a bolder meaning in recent weeks.

The actor behind the Star Trek: Discovery character, Anthony Rapp, revealed that Kevin Spacey once tried to sexually coerce him when Rapp was just 14 years old. Learning about the act of sexual misconduct was shocking enough on its own, but what made things even more shocking was Spacey’s initial statement about why he did it. To paraphrase his statement, he acted this way because he was drunk and in the closet.

It’s important to note that Rapp, who is gay, is playing a gay man in a relationship on television at a time when an actor like Spacey has sought to use what is supposed to be a brave moment — coming out — as a way to deflect from his predatory relationships. This poses a threat to strides the LGBT community has made across the board towards inclusion and positive representation, and exposes people once again to the stereotypes that being LGBT is synonymous with being a sexual predator. Thankfully, it’s Rapp’s own presence in Star Trek: Discovery, as well as his relationship with Wilson Cruz’s Dr. Culber that illustrates for viewers that whatever Spacey believes about being gay is absolutely untrue.

It’s an odd year for award season contenders, and Christopher Nolan‘s Dunkirk is going to take advantage of that.
