Straight Actors Playing Gay Characters

I’ve seen a few tweets from gay men pretty much protesting straight actors still getting gay roles in modern TV shows and movies. They were like, “Oh, I’m so sick of seeing straight actors playing gay characters.”, “These straight actors are taking away job opportunities from gay actors.”, etc. I also remember seeing a couple straight actors mention in interviews that when they got their gay roles, they wanted to make sure that their characters were still “men” and not feminine, flamboyant, etc. What are your thoughts on this topic?

An actors job is , literally, to portray a character, most likely someone they are not in real life. Why should certain characters be off-limits?

I'm a little bored of actors whining that the acting profession is "unfair' - you know... big DUH!

Get a REAL job.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
