Latest Gay Celebrity Outing

This isn't really newsworthy, but it appears actor Wentworth Miller recently made the announcement . While most people would think "Who cares?!" there are others who applaud an LGBT celebrity's coming out, giving hope and inspiration to younger gay people, especially those victims of bullying.

All the best to Mr. Miller.

Continue? The lad has been asleep at the wheel since Prison Break finished.

Hmm?

Deathstroke?

It was a minor role, completely overshadowed by Sportsmaster.

Wait?

Rob Lowe was Captain Marvel?

Weird!

He's been writing, he wrote the screenplay for Stoker.

I'm less concerned about his coming out than for the classy and politically important way he did it.

He's probably older NOW... But surely your mental snapshot of the man is from ten years ago?

Re: Latest Gay Celebrity Outing

If I suddenly became famous I'd be scratching around wishing I had something to announce. I think we are almost on the cusp of falling over the edge of the brink of the line drawn here where you're talking to yourself.

But maybe that's only me in the land of apathy.

He looks surprisingly boyish for 41.

I think his timing is good considering what is going on in Russia. Good for him.

So does that mean that you've never seen Prison Break?

Season one is really good.

Buyer beware on the subsiquent 3 years.
