Home Movies “Glass Onion” Director Says Benoit Blanc is Gay, Partner’s Identity Hiding in...

The big news today is that Benoit Blanc is gay.

“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” director Rian Johnson said in a press conference that his detective, played by Daniel Craig with a sweet potato pie accent, is “queer absolutely.”

I guess this came up after someone somewhere saw the movie. We saw it in Toronto six weeks ago. I guess I forgot all about it. Yes, in “Glass Onion” we do see where Benoit Blanc lives, and who he lives with.

Since “Glass Onion” doesn’t arrive for another month at least, I don’t think I can reveal the name of the actor who plays Benoit’s partner. But I can tell you the answer is hiding in plain sight. And he’s a very good choice. He’s a big name. Maybe he has an expanded role in part 3.

“Glass Onion” is a big entertainment with lots of highlights, but I predict now everyone will be more interested in Janelle Monae’s character than Benoit’s home life. It’s handled so subtly in the movie that you don’t really think about it.

Share and Enjoy !
