    First Sean Maher and how Zachary Quinto? Christmas is early this year!

  • Brit

    In other news, the sky is blue.

  • Koozebane

    In other news, Heros still sucked.

    • deedeedragons

      Yes. but he carried that show.

    • Steve F.

      Rather, the last 2 did (Season 2 had potential, but the strike killed it – and pretty much the series).

  • Luadri

    Love him! He was awesome on Heroes.

  • JM3

    It will ne nice one day when this isn’t news. I could care less about his preference, I enjoy his performances as an actor.

  • ha

    The only surprising name was Kevin from The Office! I don’t know if it’s true or not, but if it was, perhaps he gave Oscar Nunez tips on playing a gay character.

  • Marc

    Not a really big surprise… everyone knew

    • MikeyM

      If anyone has watched the show from a few years ago where he played the gay friend on “Tori,” they would have known then.

  • Carolyn

    Wow, good for him. I also really respect that he chose to casually say it in an interview, instead of the front cover of People’s magazine.

    • the Dude

      He is not a big enough star to make the cover of is really not that big a deal when character actors come out.Now if Jim Parsons ever comes out that will be on the cover.

      • salma

        Jim Parsons is a very private person so i don’t think he will publicly come out

      • MikeyM

        He was sitting with a Man as his date at the Emmy’s.

      • helencrump

        er…is there ANYONE who actually thinks that Jim Parsons is straight?

    • Renaton

      Jim Parsons has a husband, he proposed to him after winning his first Emmy. So he’s openly gay, obviously.

  • Hollywood Insider

    Hate to burst your bubbles ladies but I work in this town and almost every actor is gay or bi. If you knew the names I knew your head would explode you’d be so shocked.

    • Beans

      Blow our minds!!!! What are you waiting for?

    • helencrump

      “Hate to burst your bubbles ladies but I work in this town and almost every actor is gay or bi.” There is also a “casting couch” for male actors as well as female, and those who don’t think so are naive indeed. BTW, plenty of people in power, producers, etc. are gay–wonder how many of these “names” are gay for play or for pay?

  • Joe

    I wonder how supportive you people would be if a really big star came out like George Clooney or Leonardo Dicaprio? (not saying their gay) But it seems easier for guys that aren’t really sex symbols like Zachary and or Neil Patrick Harris.

    • Felix

      By “you people” do you mean straight people? I’d be ecstatic if someone like Clooney or DiCaprio came out…but I’m gay.

    • Dezi

      Well for me he is a sex symbol always has been. I am disappointed because I now have to take him off of my celebrity wish-list. I still find him very sexy though!

    • MikeyM

      If people really knew how many of their Favorites were in the closet, they would be shocked.
      Look at Rock Hudson.

    • tlw

      As a straight female, I find both NPH and Zachary Quinto to be very attractive and their sexual preferences don’t make much of a difference. I would hope this isn’t the only thing they feel defines them as people, and it really should be just one component of the whole person. Quinto was great as Sylar on Heroes and just as great as Spock. And Barney Stinson is awesome, even with the ducky tie.

  • laura

    Zachary Quinto is gay!!! wtf, i didn’t see this one coming! on the other hand if he’s happy i’m happy for him

  • Veracity

    Good for him, but I’m still waiting for a celebrity who isn’t already known to be gay to come out…

  • Anna

    Not a surprise, but good for him!

  • ***S***

    Big whup

  • ***S***

    just don’t screw up Spock. k?

    • umadbro?

      …I’m not sure what his sexuality would have do with his ability to play Spock. Especially since he has always been gay, and he played Spock just fine the first time.
