It isn't easy being ugly. Just ask Harland Williams, the lesser-known "girl" in Sorority Boys (opening Friday). The comedian — who dresses in drag alongside pretty boys Barry Watson (7th Heaven) and Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville) in the film — admits that, unlike his co-stars, he's no dreamboat!
"I ain't pretty as a guy, so I sure as hell ain't going to be pretty as a girl," laments Williams, who describes his scene-stealing character as "Kenny G. with a red wig on." In — or out — of the girlie getup, he cracks, "I wasn't going to try and have any illusions that I was a hottie... I'm not going to make the pages of Penthouse magazine anytime soon, I'll tell you that!"
The Canadian-born actor, whose credits include Freddy Got Fingered, The Whole Nine Yards and The Geena Davis Show, says the biggest drag about cross-dressing "was just assembling all the pieces. Sometimes you'd get everything on and realize you'd forgot to put your bra on."And what about the biggest advantage? "Sometimes the brassiere got a little tight, but it was almost a comforting experience," he admits. "Like I was being hugged by a koala!"
