    And John Barrowmen! Let’s not forget John Barrowmen!
    He was up for playing Will on “Will and Grace”.
    Even then, a gay man didn’t get the role playing a gay man!

    OMG!!!
    I don’t care how gay or not…but gimme Capt. Jack 24/7!

    That was an especially salient point tying this into the plight of Jewish actors.

    Well done, Kristin.

    BRAVO, Kristin, BRAVO!!!

    IRT the Newsweek article – Some people just can’t get past their internal prejudices. If you didn’t know that an actor was gay, and was playing a ‘str8′ role, you’d accept it. However, if an openly gay actor played a ‘str8′ role, suddenly it’s unbelievable. That is the whole problem with the article. The author ASSUMES all actors are straight until such time they come out as gay. Once they are open, their characterizations are no longer acceptable/believable. It’s roughly the same thing as saying an actor has become bigger than the role they are playing. When you go and see Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise or George Clooney in a movie, do you see the character they are portraying or do you see Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise or George Clooney? I think the public would be surprised to find out how many actors/actresses are gay or bi. The author of that article just can’t get past his internal prejudices. Actors play roles, some succeed, others do not. It DOES NOT depend on the actors sexuality but it does depend on the characterization, chemistry between the actors and YOUR acceptance, perception and prejudices.

    Thank you Kristin for saying what needed to be said.
