Daniel Day Lewis' Gay Johnny loves Omar.

Waaaaaay before (Method Master) Daniel Day Lewis wowed audiences as Abraham Lincoln, he brought the English Streetwise Gay Punk Johnny to 1985's silver screen in the playfully romantic,My Beautiful Laundrette. An interracial gay love story set within the homophobic Pakistani community in England. The handsome lovers,Tough Johnny and Elegant Omar's natural masculinity was a refreshingly bold step in portraying young gay men without any trace of drag( No boas & heels!) or kink ( No leather & chains!).
With all of Mr. DeNiro's  "method", I can't imagine him ever taking on a role such as this.
