Lainey Gossip has a cache of photos of Taylor Kitsch on the set of "The Normal Heart," the long-overdue film adaptation of Larry Kramer's groundbreaking play about the early days of AIDS. Kitsch plays Bruce Niles, a co-founder and early president of the Gay Men's Health Crisis alongside Ned, who is based on Kramer himself.
Bruce Niles was based on Paul Popham, a decorated Vietnam veteran turned corporate go-getter who died of AIDS in 1987. Sadly, Kitsch's interpretation of the role does not include Niles' trademark mustache, which upped Lee Pace's sex appeal incredibly during the show's 2011 Broadway revival! Ryan Murphy is at the helm of this one, so here's hoping he doesn't fuck it up like every other adaptation he's ever touched.
