    Hey everyone! I've got big news. Well, it's not really news to anyone with two eyes and a functioning brain(this leaves out :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:) but Sean Hayes(Jack from "Will & Grace") has come out of the closet. This is as much of a surprise as Lance, Clay, and Rosie.

    I remember a Thanksgiving episode from Will and Grace when Jack was nervous about coming out to his mother .... she didn't know he was gay (!). Karen's response was priceless: "What is she.... HEADLESS?"

    In the same vein.... nobody is shocked, Sean !

    Would have meant a lot more when he was on national tv every week. He could have advocated a more positive view. On the other hand, the thing that I hated about that show is that it reminded me that there are so many Jacks, hyper-critical and snobby, out there and so few Will's. I told my sister they outnumbered Wills about a 100-1.

    It's like no one ever saw Billiy's Big Screen Kiss which starred Sean Hayes. He was openly gay then. Did something happen between that movie and now?

    Sean Hayes announcing that he's gay is as pointless as Oprah announcing that she's black. Duh?!

    Sean Hayes is a very talented performer but it's unfortunate that it took him 13 years to confirm the obvious...apparently he was waiting to play Rhett Butler in a Gone with the Wind remake.

    I don't believe in outing celebs (or anyone else) unless they're being ultra-hypocrites and overtly working against the gay community, but his statement to The Advocate that he contributed monumentally to the gay movement in the US is a push. Yes, Will & Grace was truly a milestone, but since the series ended his castmates (Eric McCormack, Debra Messing and Megan Mullally) all have done far more to promote gay human rights issues than has Sean, who's been MIA.

    I do, however, wish him well and hope his Broadway run is a success.

    Actually, I am kinda surprised. I remember an interview of him, I think it was Larry King, and he had stated that it was ironic that for a gay show, Will & Grace didn't have any gay actors in the cast. As well, I had heard some senior A-list actor mentioning how talented Hayes was and that he was able to really make you believe the characters he had played. So I figured that perhaps what I saw of him on TV was his acting, not himself.

    But in the end, since I am unlikely to ever meet the person in person, his personal life has no impact nor relevance to me. As long as he is not a pedophile or rapist, he is free do do what he wants in the privacy of his bedroom

    In an unrelated item, Hayes also informed us that the sky is blue, grass is green, and water is wet.

    Whatever. I wish him well.

    You know, I enjoyed his portrayal of "Jack." But, at the same time, I expected a severe backlash from the Gay Community because Jack was such a joke, stereotype, and caricature.

    Other than make Jack likable, I don't think he did much to promote understanding of gays in general.

    Well I think this sort of was true. I don't think any of the other cast is gay and Sean Hayes isn't anything close to his actual character, so it was his acting.

    It's still a big step for him to take, no matter how "no shit" the reaction may be :smile:
