Josh Homme Appears as a 'Disappointing Gay' on 'Portlandia'
11
In his ever-growing list of acting credits, Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme has played a demon, R2D2, and a taxidermy enthusiast Dale on an episode of Comedy Bang Bang.

Now, asĀ Consequence of Sound notes, for his appearance on this week's episode of "Portlandia," Homme gets to stretch his wings by playing a "disappointing gay."

Serving as the brother to lead Carrie Brownstein, Homme brings his boyfriend (played by comedian Nick Swardson) to Portland for a visit. When the lovebirds don't adhere to certain stereotypes, preferring hot wings and Jagerbombs over pinot gris and redecorating, endless hilarity ensues.

    Well here in the US we get to see Josh Homme and Nick Swardson are gay lovers who show up to Josh's sister's house. She is waiting with Fred Armisen (I'm unfamiliar with the show and its characters) and its been implied they extended an invitation to the gays with hopes that Josh could redecorate for them. However Swardson and Homme give off a typical not overly macho but still masculine guy vibe explaining how they met at a sports bar, emphasize their love for Jagermeister and Jager bombs then proceed to wrestle each other. In the morning Homme is seen sleeping ith Swardson on the couch while we see Armisen and female expressing shock at the couple's lack of flamboyancy and cleanliness, as their living room is trashed by the two they must accept the disappointment that comes with the realization the gay relative doesn't have the "queer eye for the straight guy", if you will. As they walk away from camera we see Jos judgmentally shaking his head as he overheard the exchange. Later that day, Armisen and female portlandia star return home with a pizza to find Homme and Swardson dressed in what looks to be an ignorant attempt at flamboyant modern fashion having freshly cleaned the entire room. They are greeted by Homme and Swardson who have acquired new lisps. "Have you always had tha lisp?" Woman asks Nick. "Yeth, I wath born with thith, all gay people have lithpth." (Or something along those lines). Homme states he overheard them and his sister and Armisen feel bad for the prejudice and clarify they want them to be themselves and were wrong to have were wrong to expect stereotypes, Swardson is relieved he can talk normally. Now that I'm done I realize the female lead is Carrie Brownstein. I should have read the article before posting but I'm too lazy to edit
