As do we, Sue Sylvester. As do we!
It didn't take long beforeGlee creator Ryan Murphy and superstar Kristin Chenoweth to pull out their big guns against the disgusting Newsweek article written by Ramin Setoodeh claiming gay actors could not play straight roles convincingly.
Now, one of the Glee stars and out lesbian Jane Lynch is applauding her peers for making statements backing not only her show, but her community. She says
“The thing is, actors are actors: You can’t play gay anymore than you can play somebody who’s Catholic. Aaron Sorkin wrote a wonderful thing in the Huffington Post. I don’t think you have to slap somebody down for making an opinion that you don’t agree with. But I do think what Kristin and Ryan did was so important, and I’m glad that they said it. It doesn’t mean, ‘Off with [Setoodeh's] head.’ But I’m very glad, and I thought it was very heroic what the two of them did.”
Bravo! Classy! Well said!
