Bd!bi?e You Serid Your To Stripes rVinting Call DSN -223138 BY RUTHE STEIN San Francisco Chronicle AN FRANCISCO — The last time John Glover had a romantic scene in a mov- ie was 20 years ago when, ^lay- ing Diane, Keaton's lover in "Annie Hall," he suggested that she "touch my heart with your, „ foot." In "Love! Valour! Compas- sion!," which opened May 16, his big romantic scene is with Jason Alexander. That's right, Jerry Seinfeld's sidekick. The tenderness with which Glover's and Alexander's char- acters fell in love is sure to touch the hearts of audiences able to get past the fact that this is a movie about a group of gay men.; ° .'.. "That's the trick — to get ev- erybody in the theater to see this," Glover says, sipping iced tea before a screening of "Love!" at the Sari Francisco International Film Fesjjval',- "Qnee they see it, they'll^%alize this is a film for everybody, and it will kind of wipe off some labels." * 'In its original stage incarna- tion, "Love! Valour! Compas- sion!" did just that T^rrence McNally's play, which is about eight Mends who spend ah eventful summer together at a house in the country, won a Tony for best drama. Glover also picked up a Tony for his double role as tiie Jeck- yll brothers, good twin John and bad twin James — an obvi- ous allusion, he notes, to Dr. Je- kyll and Mr. Hyde. Often when a play is made into a movie, new people are brought in on both sides of the cameras ^But almost everyone from the Broadway production of "Love!" worked on the film, in- cluding McNally, who adapted his play for the screen, and di- rector Joe Mantello. ;The cast is the same except for Nathan* Lane, who couldn't reprise his role as the outra- geous Buzz— described as "the love child of Liberace and Judy Garland" — because he was do- ing "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum"\onBroadway. Alexander stepped into the role. ; Besides believing that they were the b^st people to be in the film, Man.tello fought for the original cast for practical rea-' ' . "Joe said if we have to re- place anybody other than Na- than there woujdn't be. enough time to 4o it," Glover says. "Not with the money they gave us tp make the movie — two point something million," Glover suspects that Alexan- der was hi^ed to have someone in the cast known outside the theater world. But the sitcom actor brought a lot more than his name to the project. "Most people know Jason just from 'Seinfeld,'" Glover; says, ^'but I knew him from when he was ojoing plays in New York^ I knew what he could do," ° Having many scenes with Al- exander helped GJover make the twins fresh after two years of playing them onstage. "Jason was new to the role, so I was forced to look at things .differ- ently because he was a differ- ent Buzz. He. was so wonderful— right there with his eyes and with himself." At one point, Buzz sems din- ner to the assembled group. He's wearing an apron and, ifs revealed when he turns around, nothing else. "Jason's got a cute little butt," Glover says, adding with a laugh, "and he knows it — he's very aware of his assets." ',..; " | The play became a bit notori- "ous for all its nudity. That, too, has been transferred to the screen. While the film' was shooting in Montreal, the reaction fromthe crew changed over time. "It was a French-Canadian crew, and initially there was sort of a macho thing,'' Glover says. "They were sort of, 'All right, we're going to do this' — this movie about eight men in a summer house with nudity in it. But then they started watching the scenes and going to dailies, and you could see this crew turn right around arid start sup- porting us. They realized we were making a film about hu- man beings as, opposed to some sensatiqnalized kind of nudie thing." ^,-\-':-:./: :"; : /Glover, 52, is one of few openly gay actors working in Hollywood. He and sculptor Adam Kurtzman have lived to- gether for three years. "We'rerole models.. It's very stressful," he says with a smile, repeating '• But while he^make^ no secret of his T|rivate Ufe, he worries that playing someone gay on the screen will get him, type- cast. After he played a criminal m the 1986 thriller "52 Pick- Up," he says, "I got typed as a villain for years, and it prevent- ed «my getting s§me very poOd parts." _ '.-.•" .'.-:'••.•.•'• -.;When Glover started making films in the 70s, he |ioped he would have a b,ig movie career. But it didn't happen, and hefound himself getting much bet- ter parts on the stage., ^ had trained as a stage ac- tor, making his dettut in 1963 at the Baiter Theater in Abing- don, Va, tOpened during the Depression, the theater got its name because farmers bartered their way in with chickens and eggs'.) < ' He has won a slew of theater awards, but they don't pay the rent on his place in Los Ange- les. At times, he has had to tell his agent, "It's time to get a money job,'' meaning sorne^- thing in film or TV. Now, Gloyer has both in the wo^s. As a mad,,scientist inthe upcoming moyi^ "Batman and Robin," he plays "kind of a cross between Albert Einstein and Gharries Manson." His character creates Poison Ivy, the part^ayed by Uma Thur- man. "It was heaven playing with Uma," QJover says. "She's got a great sense of humor about hersel|." i He's alsotloing his first pilbt, for: a CBS series called "The Family Business" about ^ three1 brothers who own a four-star restaurant in the Napa^Valley. "I play the oldest broker, who's a bit high-strung.^ It's^a wonder- ful but dysfunctional family," hesays. If the pilot is picked up, "it would change my life emotion- ally and financially," Glover says. "I've always gone here or gone there faf a jobj and when it ends I tWnk, TU never work again.' Th^n a job comes jlong and I'm siyed. it's such a roller coaster you go through. It would be/great to finally have som.e stability." „ ;
