Willem Dafoe - Boondock Saints

He may not be the fishiest lady at the Mac counter, but he does share a name with Drag Race Alum Willam Belli, making him all the more fierce.


Eddie Murphy - The Nutty Professor and Norbit

I'm sorry Eddie but I'm going to need see glamour! You're a one trick pony. I am so sick of comedy queens trying to run things. You should consult with drag sage Roxxy Andrews for tips.


Martin Lawrence - Big Mama's House movies

Watch out Latrice Royale! Big Mama is large, in charge, and giving BODY BODY BODY for the big girls! And don't think we forgot about Shenehneh!


John Travolta - Hairspray

Although he channeled nothing from the fabulous Divine who originated the role, Mr. Travolta seemed quite at home in sequins. Maybe he should consider a career change.


John Leguizamo, Wesley Snipes, and Patrick Swayze - To Wong Fu, Thanks For Everything Julie Newmar
