Luke MacFarlane Comes Ou….Who?
Is this a big deal? I’m still waiting on Anderson Cooper, Tom Cruise, Wentworth Miller, Johnny Trav, Jeremy Piven, Jodie Foster, Queen Latifah, Missy Elliot, and Ellen Page to ‘fess up. Who’s this bitch? I kid, I kid. it’s wonderful. Luke MacFarlane of ABC’s Brothers & Sisters has come out.
Luke plays the character of “Scotty” on the drama. Scotty is the boyfriend of Matthew Rhys’ gay character “Kevin Walker.” The show plans to have them commit to each other in a civil union in an upcoming episode. MacFarlane felt that this was a good time to bust out.
“I don’t know what will happen professionally,” MacFarlane said. “That is the fear, but I guess I can’t really be concerned about what will happen, because it’s my truth. … There is this desire in L.A. to wonder who you are and what’s been blaring for me for the last three years is how can I be most authentic to myself – so this is the first time I am speaking about it in this way.”
Dude, it’s 2008. If the planet doesn’t realize that 3/4 of the working actors in Hollywood are as gay as West Side Story, then there’s a problem.
Apparently he’s banging T.R. Knight. T.R. gets props for that awesome t-shirt. If you need a tour, T, you look me up. I know several public restrooms and various gay-oriented dive bars.
