We love watching powerful men run into the walls created by their traditional masculinity. I wanted to tell a story where Don subverts rather than sells traditional maleness to finally give our hero some relief.
As for the new season of Shameless, Wells said audiences should expect to see a change in the way the Gallaghers’ gay teenage son, played by Cameron Monaghan, is depicted because the actor has turned 18. When Monaghan was a real-life minor, federal law prohibited producers from showing his character in certain frank sexual situations. “In the final episodes, we see him engaged romantically with a man and I loved it,” Wells said. “(Monaghan) is not gay, but he has completely embraced the idea of this character.” Wells added that the bulk of the mail he gets is “from gay teenagers who just say a simple thank you. That’s something that I feel really good about.”
COOL CHARACTER WELL ACTED.
ABOUT TIME. THAT WAS SOME DROUGHT.
Lone Star alum James Wolk just landed a pretty amahzing gig on Happy Endings.
TVLine has learned that the sought-after actor will appear in multiple episodes of the buzzy ABC comedy playing Max’s old new boyfriend. That’s right, he’s a guy Adam Pally’s scene-stealing character used to date and is now dating again.
ABOUT FUCKING TIME. FROM EW…….
EW has learned exclusively that Will Horton (Chandler Massey, above right) will come out on the show, which introduced its first gay character last summer. Freddie Smith joined the show in June to play Sonny, a good-natured young man who returns home to join his family.
Massey, who earned his first Emmy nomination last year for his work on Days, released this statement: “I’m thrilled to be able to portray my character in an empowering way that will show his struggle to accept who he is. It is my hope that this storyline will inspire others to be true to themselves as well.”
Will’s sexual orientation will become obvious to the viewers as well as family and friends but his journey toward self-acceptance is expected to unfold over the next few weeks, the show says.
HMMMMM, FUN. FROM TVLINE…..
McKinley High’s trailblazing sweethearts Finn and Blaine are set to FUCK in Glee‘s Nov. 8 episode titled, appropriately, “The First Time.”
But as you can see in the following exclusive first look image, the outing also marks the introduction of the first significant obstacle for the happy couple — scheming, Blaine-crushing gay Dalton Academy Warbler Sebastian (played by Grant Gustin).
And make no mistake: This kid is trouble with a capital “T” that rhymes with “P” that stands for potboiler. A Glee insider takes it a step further, declaring Sebastian “our villain this season.”
