My feeling always was, an an actor - and especially as one of the straight actors on the show, that, to a degree, it was my job to do my lines the way they were written and mind my fucking business because our executive producers and many of our writers were gay and were creating these scripts and lines to tell their stories. Both of those guys put a lot of themselves into that show and worked really friggin’ hard and I have a really low tolerance, personally, for anybody who would interrupt that process of peple trying to do good work just because of ego and bullshit. You could have Ted or one of the other characters go there and lead us through the beginnings. My best friend growing up came out of the closet when I was 19 or 20 but his parents still don’t know and it’s always been tough for him. I won 'Cutest Billboard' in San Francisco and that made for a good time driving through the city.
I caught up with Hal yesterday and we talked about politics, being magnificent in the sack, and why there will I think it’s a comedian’s job to kind of take it to the root level and take any kind of concept, idea or institution that people hold dear and basically chew at its root like a beaver to see if it falls over.I address what I think are the real important truths.For instance, Starbucks does not sell coffee - they sell milkshakes.People need to come to terms with the fact that every morning before work they get up and they have a milkshake.If it’s 80 percent sugar, ice-cream and whip cream and you breathe coffee over the top of it, that does not make it coffee. In California, gay marriage is legal right now and that’s a huge step forward and I think the show had a lot to do with it.Coffee is that shitty brown liquid your dad drank and you said ‘ew’ and wrinkled your nose at. You have to understand who was watching it a lot of teenagers and college kids and what happened was that those kids are voting now and at a very young age they were shown that the way gay people had been treated was unfair and they were able to come at it from a completely different point of view.
I think what happened is, and I’ve always said this, the benefits of QAF would only be genuinely appreciated and felt four years after the show ended and it’s been about two and a half years and you can really see it starting to happen.
The religious right and the other psychopaths on that side have been trying to stop the march toward gay rights and the truth is, it’s like trying to push toothpaste back in a tube. You can’t keep young people bigoted once they’ve seen an alternative view. Let's just say there was a little bit of, um, pushback with some of the other actors on the show. I’m still in contact with many of the people from the show like Bobby Gant, who played my character’s boyfriend, and Harris, who played my son. But there is a chance and I always push Ron and Dan in this direction and I think it would be very healthy to do something like 'QAF: Miami' or 'QAF: Chicago' where they took a different group of people and brought the show back that way. I’d exec produce it but I have no business going anywhere near a gay show as anything other than an actor.
