I loved Ben Baur in ‘Hunting Season’  and I think he has great charm as an actor so I promised to support his projects. He was great in the movie version of ‘Something Like Summer’ and I know he has been traveling the gay film festival circuit with his short ‘Something New.’  Directed by TH Marchbank, Baur here plays a gay man stuck with his ex. He has been replaced by a pretentious twat, and he has been hooking up with a FWB he met through Grindr. When that friend asks him for a date, he freezes and doesn’t know how to answer. We all know they are good for each other. Baur is great here, showing great comedic (and physical) timing and he really is a someone who lights up the screen whenever he is on. This short is funny, and will make you want more.
