Video: Gay Actor Sean Hayes Sucks At Playing A Straight Role
"Tony Awards show host Sean Hayes had implied in a press call last week that he might make a nod to the Newsweek article that said he wasn`t convincing as a straight man in his Broadway show Promises, Promises." Read More
Last night during the Tony Awards show he addressed the issue, not in a long speech but in a skit in which he makes out with his play co-star Kristin Chenoweth.
Can a gay thespian be convincing in a role as straight man? Please, there are so many closeted gay actors in Hollywood, including some of the biggest names in the business.
The pertinent question is can Sean Hayes be convincing playing a straight role? The answer is an emphatic and resounding: Hell No!
If Kristen Chenoweth walked up to me and kissed me, I would have been on her like white on rice. The gifted singer would have walked off the stage bowlegged.
Sean Hayes sucks playing a straight role, he was more wooden than Al Gore when he was kissing Chenoweth. He looked and acted uncomfortable.
You be the judge my friends, watch the video!
