Gale and the cast of Queer As Folk

I'm having a bad day so I thought that I'd cheer myself up with a pic of Gale and the cast of Queer As Folk.

This is one of my favorite promo shots from the series. It's from season four. The entire cast looks great.


I'm starting to feel better.

Saturday, December 20, 2008

You may think you, but you don't know. You know?

Busy, and slightly confusing times, Gale fans.

I was going to skip the whole "Will he or won't he be back on Desperate Housewives?" drama that's ensued the last couple days but Google alerts won't let me! And no, cancelling them is not an option. How else am I going to know when other Gale fans around the world type his name in cyberspace?

First, there was this bit of depressing news that showed up in a Google alert, which did include a stern statement from Gale's publicist: Harold's rep insisted there's nothing to be concerned with regarding her client: "He is fine. Your source is wrong," the publicist stated. IMHO, I seriously doubt that he really is "fine". If that were the case, he'd already be back at work. But, I digress.

Then, after the fangirls/fanboys called "foul" on the article, citing a previous, more positive "Gale sighting", the story was updated to let his fans know that he's been to the set to loop some scenes.

Confused yet?

I'm sure that the truth, whatever it is, lies somewhere between these two updates. And like everything else related to Gale, when, or if, he ever wants us to know anything about him, he'll tell us.

But I won't be holding my breath. I don't look that good in blue :D

So how about a gratuitous "Gale without a shirt" pic! When I first saw this, I thought it was from Queer As Folk, but then I quickly realized that Brian Kinney wouldn't be caught dead on those sheets. Seriously.


Damn, he looks good.

It's from the TV movie "Fathers and Sons", which I just added to my queue because I haven't seen it yet. Hopefully I'll enjoy it more than the person whose review is on the IMDB page, because *ouch* they did not like the movie at all.

Out and about Gale

Why do these things always happen when I'm asleep? I got my Gale Harold Google alert at 3:52:31 AM. Who's up at that time?

Good news Gale fans!!!!!

As reported in Bay Windows, New Englands Largest GLBT Newspaper

A few days later, I zipped to the Kirk Douglas Theatre to see The Little Dog Laughed with original stars Johnny Galecki (he of the impressive appendage, on display at, and Julie White (she of the Tony Award). While it was easily one of my favorite LA theatrical experiences of 2008, I wasn’t alone. Sitting way in the penultimate row, hiding his scruffiness under a cap, was Gale Harold. Yes, the recently hospitalized actor is up and about. We can reveal exclusively that he’ll be returning to Desperate Housewives after the holiday break.

Scruffy Gale is made of LOVE people. L.O.V.E.


*movie still from The Unseen

I have to go back to programming my DVR to record Desperate Housewives again, which I do not mind doing. At all.

YAY for getting better Gale Photobucket

Sweet Gale


This is my new laptop wallpaper. It's about 4"x6" and against a black background. Gorgeous picture. Gale looks so young and relaxed. Such a sweet smile.

Saturday, December 06, 2008

Cowboy Gale is here!

I finally got the Deadwood DVD that has Gale's episodes on it. Now I can get the answer to one of my many burning questions, which in this case is: Why is Cowboy Gale throwing tree stumps around?


Friday, December 05, 2008

Oh Cowboy Gale, where are you?

WTH fangirls and/or fanboys! Why aren't you returning the Deadwood DVD disc that has Gale's appearance on it back to Blockbuster so they can ship it to me A.S.A.P.? I hate having to stalk the mail lady, but you're leaving me no choice.

Don't make me get Quick-draw Gale to pop a cap in your ass.

Cowboy Gale

How is it that I've never seen Gale on Deadwood?

I'm sure it has something to do with the fact that I never watched the show while it was on the air, but hey! It's GALE. There is really no excuse.

So while I patiently await the delivery of the Deadwood DVD's from Blockbuster, I shall be content with gazing at the scruffy, messy, definitely-in-need-of-a-hot-bath Gale, wearing an oh-so-sexy ensemble of purple polka dotted shirt with a striped vest and a blue (black?) neck thingy. And rolled up sleeves. I like the rolled up sleeves.



I'll be back later with more pics and some thoughts on Cowboy Gale.

Saturday, November 22, 2008

Too much Gale?

I was going through some pics on my laptop to see how they'd look as wallpapers and when I clicked on this pic I got life-size Gale on my laptop!


The man has flawless skin.

Gale in TV Guide

New blurb from TV Guide article The Hot List, 30 Smoking Reasons To Love TV...

HOT Rebound GuyJackson Braddock, Desperate Housewives

He's the oh-so-handy man who came to paint Susan Meyer's house and wound up with her in the sack. But don't think Housewives star Gale Harold is just one more hunk o' stud meat. As Teri Hatcher's new leading man, the actor--best known as gay horndog Brian Kinney on Queer as Folk--plays the painter with an easy egoless sensuality and an achy-breaky heart. At first, he didn't mind that bitter love-burned Susan only wanted sex, but he soon yearned to meet her son and her friends and even tried to bust her with a public--and very embarrassing--karaoke rendition of the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend". When she refused to enter into a committed relationship, he got so hurt he rebounded with some tart he picked up in a bar. Zero or hero? We're not quite sure what to make of Jackson. Even his recently revealed big secret threw us for a loop. It turns out he's actually--gasp--a portrait painter with a creative block. Whaat? He's not nuts or evil like so many other mystery men on Wisteria Lane? Once Harold returns from his October motorcycle accident, Jackson could be Susan's dream man--if only she'd wake up and realize it.


Hello good news!

And then there's "... tried to bust her with a public--and very embarrassing--karaoke rendition of the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend"."

Bwahahahahaha! I'm a die-hard Gale fangirl and even I cringed when he sang.

Gale in black and white


Such a good pic. So serious with just a touch of sadness. It graces the background of my twitter account, the wallpaper on my Zune and I rotate it out with many other Gale and Brian and Justin pics on my laptop. Such long lashes!

It looks like tonight will probably be the last time we see Gale on DH. (At least that's the consensus on the IMDB boards.)

I hope Gale's at-home recovery is going well and that he's getting better every day. And if he ever needs someone to give him a sponge-bath, I'm always available :)

Gale's getting better

A most wonderful IJ friend left me a message this morning about Gale and when I read this

Gale Harold Out of Intensive Care


(I changed the pic to one of my favorites)

"The Insider" can confirm the news that "Desperate Housewives" star Gale Harold is on the road to recovery.

A rep for the actor, who plays Teri Hatcher's character's love interest on the ABC hit, tells "The Insider": "Gale Harold is out of intensive care and improving daily. A full recovery is expected. He thanks everyone for their good wishes."

Harold was injured in a motorcycle accident last week.

This is how I felt


Seriously, this is the best headline ever.

'Housewives' actor improving after moto accident
The Associated Press
Article Launched: 10/16/2008 07:08:23 PM PDT

LOS ANGELES—"Desperate Housewives" actor Gale Harold was improving Thursday after suffering serious injuries in a motorcycle accident two days earlier, hospital officials said.
Harold was under observation in the intensive care unit at Los Angeles County USC Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Adelaida De La Cerda said.

The actor, who plays Jackson, the boyfriend of Teri Hatcher's character Susan Mayer on the ABC show, had swelling on the brain and a fractured shoulder but is expected to recover.

He will be transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center when a bed becomes available, De La Cerda said.

LJ post-

Generally speaking the news is good. He is still in a room that is restricted to both visitors and gifts. His memory is slowly returning which is a sign of reduced swelling. He is wearing a foam neck brace, and a sling for his shoulder. The doctors will continue to monitor his progress but it does appear that each day he is improving. --DH Exec Producer

Sounds like Gale's improving.

Ending the day on a better news note

I belong to a community on Live Journal and there was a locked post with an update on Gale. I'm only posting the part that was made public. It's good news and it's the most current that I can find right now.


I’ve spoken with Gale’s publicist this morning and here is her update: she told me that Gale has been moved out of critical care this morning, was coherent last night but has no memory of what happened and was asking why he was in the hospital at all. The doctors continue to observe the swelling of the brain but every hour brings him that much closer to being out of the woods. All positive news. He will remain in the hospital for an undetermined amount of time and the 48 hours of critical observation will be over by tomorrow morning.


George W. Perkins
Executive Producer

What a long and emotional day.

I've been putting together my thoughts on DH episodes 502 and 503 and intended to post them today but I got a little sidetracked.

I know that there are very serious issues in this world and especially in this country right now and that Gale being in a motorcycle accident seems like a minor footnote to everything else. But it's Gale and I'm a Gale fan-girl.

Get better Gale.

Heart Myspace Graphic

*breathes a little easier*

New news about Gale from

Gale Harold, who currently portrays Teri Hatcher's boyfriend on Desperate Housewives, was in a motorcycle accident yesterday.

Harold, who was expected on the Desperate Housewives set today, has been a fairly big part of this season, and his character will play an important role in the eighth episode.

First reported to be in critical condition, reports are surfacing that Gale Harold is currently in stable condition, and is expected to make a full recovery, according to Desperate Housewives executive producer Marc Cherry.

Harold fractured his shoulder in the accident, and had some swelling to his brain, though it must be reinforced that he is expected to be OK and make a full recovery. Gale Harold is currently at the USC Medical Center in their Intensive Care Unity undergoing further tests. The 38-year-old actor has become a staple on popular television shows in recent years, though he has yet to become a household name.

In addition to his work on Desperate Housewives, Harold has appeared on such shows as Vanished, Grey's Anatomy, Law and Order: SVU, Deadwood (as famed lawman Wyatt Earp) and The Unit. His first big starring role was as the domineering Brian Kinney on Showtime's Queer as Folk, the American remake of the popular British series.Desperate Housewives is currently in its fifth season.

While the series began its first few years as a ratings and critical sensation, the series petered out some in the last couple seasons. After season 4, show runner Marc Cherry decided to take a cue from Lost and fast-forwarded the series five years into the future. According to the Desperate Housewives staff, this has revitalized the series. It was a risky move for a well-established show, but the early returns from fans are good. Desperate Housewives airs its fourth episode of the season this Sunday at 9pm.

A little shot of Gale tummy always makes me feel better :)


Another update

Cherry said Harold was scheduled to be on set before the Tuesday accident, which was first reported by TMZ. Selzer said no one else was injured.

I like the hobo look on Gale

Marc Cherry is SUCH a Queer As Folk fanboy!

And he's having some serious fun with Jackson.

I am so glad to see Gale back on TV. Thank you Marc and ABC and Gale's agent and anyone else that had anything to do with landing him this job.

"Are you dissing my sense of style?"

OMG the love.

Future Gale!

Thanks to the fangirls on my LJ f-list and at the IMDB board for the spoiler pics from Desperate Housewives episode 5.

This looks like a serious relationship moment. And not in a good way. *worries*

I will pull out my fangirl card and say that I LOVE how Gale looks in this scene. The hair's a little messier, which is always a good look on him. The shirt is different, BUT, he's a painter and most likely a very creative type and I have no doubt that he can pull it off :D Also, brown is a good color on him.

And the best part? It's the return of semi-scruffy Gale!

Oh semi-scruffy Gale, how I love thee!



A little side-note to Susan: break his heart and risk the wrath of his legions of fangirls. I'm just saying.

Some good Gale press

A link for a great review of the new season of Desperate Housewives, plus a very positive mention about Gale and his storyline. It's by Dawn Meade Davenport at the

Here's a quick excerpt:

My favorite storyline by far, though, is Susan’s attempt to move on after the breakup of her marriage to Mike. Her hunky painter boyfriend, played by Gale Harold of Showtime’s late “Queer as Folk,” sexes the show up a bit, much the way Gaby’s lawn boy John did in Season 1, except with depth and maturity. I figured I’d be longing for a Susan-and-Mike reunion, but I’m really rooting for new beau Jackson and was encouraged to see that Mike really wants her to be happy. So do I.

Gale gets funny

A new clip from Desperate Housewives second episode. I think this is going to be a fun arc.

LMAO! Awkward indeed. *sighs* I so love Gale.

I'll be back later with my thoughts on 501 and Gale's character Jackson.

(thanks to Gale's IMDB board for the heads-up on the clip)

Pretty likeable Gale

Not so new news about Gale on DH from Korbi TV at

Hey Korbi, I know you already said that Mike Delfino will be back for this season of Desperate Housewives and that he and Susan are divorced, but why??? What happened? Don't make me wait until this weekend for answers. -Jill
Mike and Susan's estrangement is the result of a tragedy the two were involved in. Not to worry, we will still see plenty of the plumber. Plus, Susan's new guy, Jackson the house painter (Gale Harold), is pretty likeable.

He certainly is. Something that his fangirls and fanboys have known for a long time.


Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Gale takes the mic

There's a great Italian Gale site on the web that I can always depend on for Gale pics.

I found a post on Gale's IMDB page just now that links to the site and this picture. The consensus is that "Jackson" might be singing karaoke with Mike in a bar. We've definitely seen the shirt in a few of the promo shots.


I can't imagne what he could be singing. Maybe My Brown-Eyed Girl by Van Morrison?

This looks like it could be fun.

You know, I usually don't look forward to Sunday nights, especially when they herald the start of a new week with alarm clocks that go off at 5:30 am, kids that have sports and band, school committments and homework and just, you know, life in general.

But starting this Sunday, I'll have a good reason to look forward to Sunday evenings.

The Gale Gods are smiling on the fangirls today

More new caps this morning!

Notice that Gale is headless here. *glares at the person who cropped this pic*


A very animated conversation. I wonder what they're talking about.


I love this cap. Casual Gale not looking too happy. I'm also loving the hair in this one. He looks good.


This is the one that I was waiting for yesterday. At this size, his eyes look tired :(


Gale on-the-go

A new clip of Gale and Terry from the first episode of Desperate Housewives.

I don't know which is worse. Flinging his pants at him or kicking him out of bed so fast. Again, I must ask of Susan..."Are you NUTS?"

Friday, September 19, 2008

Gale galore

Step away from the computer for the afternoon and look what happens. They release new Gale pictures from Desperate Housewives.

I've got to stop leaving my house.

Let's see what we have here...

Minister Hart? No, I'm not buying it. Lovely dress though.


I have no words...(which explains the small size)


Give him season 2 hair and he'd make one hell of a James Bond.


*big fangirl sigh*

Such a gorgeous man. Such a lucky woman.




And because I also fangirl great hair.


Simply stunning.

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

Don't take away my fangirl membership

Confession time.

Honestly, I really don't think the latest behind-the-scenes picture of Gale is all that flattering. (See previous two posts) And I'm not the only one. There are a few fans on the IMDB boards that have expressed the same opinion.

What it all boils down to is the fact that as Gale fans, we're just happy to see a new picture. Any picture. And that confession is why I find this post on so amusing.

Mandy Bierly, on the Pop Watch Blog, waxes enthusiastic about Gale's upcoming role on DH.

"After seeing this behind-the-scenes photo of new cast member Gale Harold on ABC's press site, my excitement level for Desperate Housewives' Sept. 28 season premiere was at a 10 — even with the hair that I would trim and the shirt that I would lose. So you can imagine the squeal excitement at 5:52 p.m. ET last night, when I received an email saying that ABC had just uploaded the episode to the site. I won't spoil it for you, but let's just say that this — or any — shirt really isn't an issue in his first two scenes as Susan's lover.

How excited are you now?"

I'm still pretty damned excited.

I prefer this picture instead. It's a repeat, but who cares!

Same shirt, same hair, more flattering angle.

Note to Susan: Are you crazy?

Another little bit of Gale on DH news from the Clilck the link for the rest of the blurb.

Desperate Housewives: The wicked soap pulled the rug out from viewers in last season’s finale, in which it flashed forward five years and — hey, what’s up with Susan (Teri Hatcher) not being married to Mike? Gale Harold (Vanished) will play Susan’s new love. "He’s kind of an interesting, artsy guy who’s very much very different from the previous man in her life," creator Marc Cherry told critics in July. "[He] will present her with all sorts of new challenges, especially the fact that she kind of doesn’t really even want to be in a relationship."

To which I can only reply- Is she NUTS????? It's Gale. He brings the arm AND the back porn.




*overlooks and tries to forgive the s5 hair*

She needs to get over herself.

Observant Gale

A brief mention of Gale in the "Who's New" column on (found here)

Gale Harold, "Desperate Housewives"

Who was that man at Teri Hatcher's door in the season finale? He's Gale Harold, 39, and all he knows is the characters new to Wisteria Lane are there to shake things up; on set it feels a little like high school. He's trying to fit in. "I'm just sitting back in an anthropological way watching it happen."

New pics and a short vid of Gale in Desperate Housewives

After spending the day shopping with a couple of grumpy twelve year old girls, look what I came home to; pics and a vid of Gale from the new season of Desperate Housewives.





Gale's s5 hair is making me a little sad, but DAMN! his arms and back are looking good.

The New GALE pic is here!

Finally, an article and picture from the new season of Desperate Housewives!


The article's here

and it tells how Susan and Jackson met (he was hired to paint her house).

It also points out that "Harold, single in real life,...". The purpose of that? Maybe to molify all of the rabid fangirls that will send a barrage of e-mails to the author of the article with the constantly asked questions of - "Did you meet him? What was he wearing? Who was he with?" It seems to be their mantra.

And no, I'm not a rabid fangirl. Honestly. Just someone who appreciates Gale as an actor.

My day just got a little bit better and brighter :)
