Oscar Isaac is a 'Yes' to Drag Race, Now He Just Needs An Invitation

The audience at a panel during this weekend’s New York Comic Con got the impression that Oscar Isaac desires a date with RuPaul. That’s at least what was conveyed when the actor replied to a fan’s question regarding his admiration for the legendary drag queen at the panel.According to Decider, a fan dressed in Maleficent drag had inquired to Isaac about the fact that he loves RuPaul’s Drag Race so much.They were the last fan who was able to ask the Moon Knight actor a question, so they approached the mic and stated their important query.“I don’t know another actor with as much charisma, uniqueness, or talent,” the Maleficent-clad fan began.

All Stars with some fresh fillers and a new set of pearly-white veneers, RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race is back this summer looking better than ever.In spring of 2020, the franchise spin-off made a fun if conceptually confused debut, in which trios of celebrities (Vanessa Williams and Loni Love among them) were given drag makeovers by queens, and then asked to compete in classic one-off challenges, like Snatch Game or the Rusical.The idea behind things being “secret” was flimsy at best given the contestants “RuVealed” themselves at the episode’s outset, but, hey, it was early on in the pandemic and we were happy for another diversion.This August, the format gets a revamp (a RuVamp???), taking a page from The Masked Singer to ensure that the “secret” stays in Secret Celebrity Drag Race. As a brand-new trailer details, 9 stars will compete in “the ultimate lip-sync showdown,” undergoing drag transformations while keeping their identities hush-hush.These stars are sitting on a secret! ? ?

From ‘Hereditary’ to ‘Glee’, these are the spoken word lip-syncs ‘Drag Race’ should do next
so into monologuing right now.On the most recent episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7, herstory was made when Ru announced that the week’s winning queens—[spoiler!] Jinkx Monsoon and Monét X Change—would compete in a “spoken word” Lip Sync For Your Legacy for the first time ever, opening up a gag-worthy new world of opportunities, 13+ years into the franchise’s run.Related: Why ‘Drag Race All-Stars 7’ is THE season to watchInstead of the requisite modern pop bop or classic gay anthem, the queens were asked to prepare a lip-sync to Dixie Carter’s iconic monologue from a 1986 episode of Designing Women dubbed “The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia.”What followed was something fresh and exciting for Drag Race—a whole new avenue for these legendary legends to show off what makes them so, well, legendary—as Jinkx and Monét went big, bold, and had a ball mouthing along to Carter’s Julia Sugarbaker dropping some pageant knowledge on her rival, Marjorie Lee Winnick (Pamela Bowen).Watch the queens hilariously ham it up below:So, how did this spoken-word lip-sync experiment go over?
