Happy 50th birthday to Robert Gant!
This is my favorite picture of Robert Gant – for obvious reasons – so I’ve decided to feature it again today on his birthday.
I’ve loved him ever since he appeared as one of Pheobe’s boyfriend’s on Friends then he was the high school principal on Popular. But best of all, there was his wonderful run on Queer as Folk as professor Ben Bruckner.
He turns 50 today and is proof that the notion that openly gay actors can convincingly play straight roles or romantic leads.
He has managed to continue to be cast in both gay (Save Me) and straight roles (Special Delivery) and in comedies (Mike & Molly, Hot in Cleveland) and dramas (Personal Affairs, Bones, Nip/Tuck).
His most recent credits include recurring roles on 13 Reasons Why, The Fosters, and Supergirl. This year he also made the Hallmark movie Wedding of Dreams opposite Debbie Gibson.
Happy birthday to this wonderfully appealing – and hunky – actor!
