Apparently last year there was a scare.
This A- list mostly television actor on a very hit network show who got his fame on another hit network show back in the day, was spotted with a guy.
Not just spotted, but full on making out in a gay bar.
Nothing wrong with that, but our actor is deep in the closet.
He has had a series of beards over the years, but has never needed anything longer than for a month. Now though, he is on what will probably be a very long running show.
What to do? Find him another beard.
It turns out it was really easy to do that.
A co-star. An actress who loves fame and with the right compensation and commitment was ready and willing.
It didn’t matter she was in another relationship.
She didn’t care at all.
This was going to take her to the big time.
To his friends and to his sometime boyfriends, this was all a big shock.
At one point he had been set to come out and now he was back in the closet with a woman who also managed to turn this into a lifetime commitment.
She loves it.
No one is quite sure how she pulled off what she did, but there is no coming out the closet for the actor now and his agents and managers love it.
