Justin Kirk--Pings to high heaven

I always thought that Justin Kirk (the adorable Andy on Weeds) was a gay acting straight man. I also thought he was married. Now I find out he is single, which makes me think that my pinging gaydar might be right. Any info?

His only public girlfriend that I've ever heard of was Kate Walsh.......nuff said.

That's what I love about DL: everyone's gay until proven otherwise. I mean, I think so too, don't get me wrong.

He did an interview in the Advocate years ago where he denied it and said he's metrosexual, or something to that effect, and conceded he's never been good in relationships with women. He also dated Mary Louise Parker, if I recall, after the Crudup breakup.

FWIW, I have a friend, aminor one-time TV series regular, who went to Circle in the Square with him and says he's straight. Or at least was then.

With John Slattery, R6? Because your friend "saw" him there? I can't tell you how many gay gasps followed by a sighting turn out not to be the person they claim. Give us a link, a photo, something. Otherwise, his public interviews are his statements that he's not gay. He may be closeted, but that is not "openly gay."

He checked me out a year or two ago. I'm a chick.

I'll find it, R8. There's no photo. Maybe there's an ad for the show.

he may have just thought you were ugly gays do that to women ya know..."Yikes! look at that!"

by Anonymousreply 1111/10/2010

He never dated Mary-Louise Parker.

R6, where does it say that Justin Kirk is "openly gay now"?

by Anonymousreply 1311/10/2010

The actor who played Denny on Gray's Anatomy was the relationship ML Parker had after Crudup.

Every single guy is gay on DL

I thought it was pretty well established that Kirk was straight back during Angels in America. I don't remember the details but there was obviously a lot of interest because his Pryor Walter was so terrific.

by Anonymousreply 1611/10/2010

Maybe it was just tabloid gossip, but it was out there that they were dating. He took her to a couple of award shows as his "date" so technically....

I've always thought he was fucking Hunter Parrish, who posts photos of them together constantly and tweets about him all the time.

by Anonymousreply 1911/10/2010

He's naked all over the place in "Flannel Pajamas"

by Anonymousreply 2011/10/2010

He's also naked in "Love, Valour, Compassion"

He's not nearly as attractive now that he's middle-aged as he was when he was younger.

by Anonymousreply 2111/10/2010

He's not middle aged. He's only 40.

by Anonymousreply 2211/10/2010

Middle age starts at 35. Are you 40?

by Anonymousreply 2311/10/2010

He's not fooling anyone. He is definitely gay, maybe not publicly. I know for fact that he has long time partner. They even had a baby with surrogate mother about 2 years ago.

by Anonymousreply 2411/10/2010

Saw his cock on Broadway in "Love, Valour, Compassion." He played the blind guy. Liked his cock. What I didn't like was watching Mario Cantone who had replaced Nathan Lane.

by Anonymousreply 2511/10/2010

He's 41 - born in 1969. He'll be 42 next May. Just when do you think middle age starts, r22?

by Anonymousreply 2611/10/2010

he's bffs with Mary-Louise...there is a difference.

by Anonymousreply 2711/10/2010

I don't care what he is - he's sex on a stick.

by Anonymousreply 2811/10/2010

Justin Kirk was Jenna Fischer's first husband.%0D Remember that Patrick Wilson was gay in A in A also as the uptight husband of ML Parker.

by Anonymousreply 2906/26/2011

It's hard to believe they would cast someone straight in the important Kirk role in Angels. You guys may disagree, but I've yet to buy a straight guy playing gay. Other way around, yes; they have a lifetime of practice.

by Anonymousreply 3006/26/2011

he's gay kids. my ex (a male), dated him briefly in the 90's before he was famous.

by Anonymousreply 3105/28/2012

After watching him in AiA, I thought if he wasn't gay, he should be, and that his performance was one of the best acting I had seen in years (joined with Jeffrey Wright). After the acting wasteland of the late 90s, I was mesmerized.

Also, Jenna Fischer's first husband was Lee Kirk, not Justin.

by Anonymousreply 3205/28/2012

He has consistently claimed to be straight. But he definitely cruised me on the way in to LVC many years ago.

by Anonymousreply 3305/28/2012

He seems to be the go-to boy for nudity. I saw him twice during the run of "Love, Valour," and if he isn't gay, the Academy should give him a Lifetime Achievement Award right now.

(Love his penis, too.)

by Anonymousreply 3406/08/2012

I disagree, R21. I think he looks hotter now.

by Anonymousreply 3506/08/2012

Was there ANYONE in the original cast of "Love! Valour! Compassion!" that wasn't gay?

by Anonymousreply 3606/08/2012

Jenna Fischer's current husband is Lee Kirk. Her first husband was James Gunn.

All the guys in the film version of Angels were straight.

by Anonymousreply 3807/13/2012

He's straight. I loved the film version of Angels in America but thought he was the weakest casting by far, and Ben Shenkman was pretty weak. He was totally unbelievable as a drag queen. Not anywhere close. He certainly didn't equal Spinella's performance.

First saw him in LVC on Broadway and thought he was totally hot. Later met him through mutual actor acquaintances and he didn't ping at all and introduced me to his gf at the time. Stayed in touch with him as we ran into each other frequently (as recently as six months ago) at Equinox.

Never once got a gay vibe, and I don't think he plays gay particularly well either. He never dated MLP, they're good friends. She dated her dead husband on "Weeds", Jeffrey something after leaving Crudup. Crudup... Now there's someone who pings.

r39---how'd he look without his toupee?

by Anonymousreply 4007/13/2012

I knew him back in New York during and after his Circle in the Square days. He was straight then, and worked for a while at a porno shop on the west side. He was a 'notorious pussyhound' back in the day but most of his buddies were gay and while I suppose it's possible he's gay now I just always thought he was very comfortable with his and other peoples' sexuality.

by Anonymousreply 4107/13/2012

What's the deal with him growing up on a rez?

by Anonymousreply 4207/13/2012

He quite frequently wears a hat to workout r40. He's actually not that bald, just thinning. I would imagine he has to wear a toupee to make the hair not look thin under the lights and in front of the camera.
