Wentworth Miller graces the most recent issue of Details and had the following to say about grappling with his sexuality:
On coming out: “I feel more fully expressed. After Prison Break, I came to grips with the fact that my public persona was in misalignment with how I actually felt. I was out to a handful of people in my twenties, and once I hit 30, I was out to family and friends. But professionally, I was feeding a fantasy. I created this air of “We don’t address that thing.”
On if he regrets not coming out earlier: “My face was on billboards, and I thought it was my job to act a certain way. But I think audiences knew to a certain degree.”
I am a huge fan of Wentworth’s so enjoyed reading the article on this little-covered actor. And, he was just cast in ‘The Flash.’
Broadway (and gay) icon Elaine Stritch has passed away. Even though she was 89, I have to say that I did not expect this one. Via the NYT:
Elaine Stritch, the brassy, tart-tongued Broadway actress and singer who became a living emblem of show business durability and perhaps the leading interpreter of Stephen Sondheim’s wryly acrid musings on aging, died on Thursday at her home in Birmingham, Mich. She was 89.
Her death was confirmed by a friend, Julie Keyes. Before Ms. Stritch moved to Birmingham last year, she lived, famously, for many years at the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan.
One of my favorite Stritch appearances was on the long-gone “Big Gay Sketch Show.” Watch and take note of a young Kate McKinnon:
While I am not surprised, Brooks had graced his limited screen time with scruffy hotness and a muscular body. I, for one, will miss the fact that 80% of the time he was on camera he was pretty much naked.
Here’s my Brooks Wheelan tribute. Good luck, my friend.
