Call in to speak with the host
In 2005, Dan Bucatinsky and his partner, Don Roos, found themselves in an L.A. delivery room, decked out in disposable scrubs from shower cap to booties, to welcome their adopted baby girl—launching their frantic yet memorable adventures into fatherhood. Two and a half years later, the same birth mother—a heroically generous, pack-a-day teen with a passion for Bridezilla marathons and Mountain Dew—delivered a son into the couple’s arms. In Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight? Bucatinsky moves deftly from sidesplitting stories about where kids put their fingers to the realization that his athletic son might just grow up to be straight and finally to a reflection on losing his own father just as he’s becoming one. Bucatinsky’s soul-baring and honest stories tap into that all-encompassing, and very human, hunger to be a parent—and the life-changing and often ridiculous road to getting there.
Dan is perhaps best known for writing and starring in the indie gay romantic comedy All Over The Guy. Since 2003 he and partner Lisa Kudrow have been running Is Or Isn't Entertainment which produced the cult comedy The Comeback in which he co-starred with Kudrow as her publicist. They are now in production for the third season of the acclaimed docu-series Who Do You Think You Are? and have garnered critical and audience attention for their groundbreaking, web-to-TV version of Web Therapy for Showtime in which he Bucatinsky also stars.
It's good to talk.
