Happy Birthday to Phillip P. Keene!
Didn’t want to let the day pass without wishing a happy birthday to Phillip P. Keene, the handsome actor who has played Buzz Watson on the smash TNT drama The Closer for five seasons.
Buzz is the guy who keeps things running when Kyra Sedgwick’s character of LAPD Deputy Police Chief Brenda Johnson is making criminals confess in the interrogation room.
I met Phillip at AIDS Walk Los Angeles last fall and was pleasantly surprised to find out that he is an out and proud actor.
Phillip has been in a committed relationship for 16 years and said the couple had considered marriage last year but wanted to wait to find out what happened with Proposition 8.: “Because I don’t want something like that being ripped out from under us after the fact, you know?”
Hopefully, marriage will become legal in California again and they can tie the knot then! Meanwhile, hopefully Phillip is having a wonderful birthday!
