One Remark

    Tommy Marx says:

    I could not agree more with Andrew Scott. If only gay actors can play gay men, lesbians can play lesbians, etc., then only straight men can play straight men. And as a community theater actor who is gay and been in more than two dozen plays, I’ve never played a gay character. It would have been awesome, but it never happened. But following the logic of some, I would never have been able to play ANY character because I wasn’t heterosexual.

    I think there needs to be a huge push to having more roles/characters played by a diverse cast, like Grey’s Anatomy has been doing for a decade and a half. If a gay actor is the best choice for a gay part, go for it. But if someone else is the best choice, regardless of his race, orientation, gender identification, or gender, choose the best actor!! I understand just as much as anyone how much it matters to see yourself represented on the screen, but that’s what you should be fighting for, not insisting that ONLY a gay person could play a gay role.
