  1. Seriously No Lafayette from True Blue… Jason and Eric both were not gay characters. WTF.

  2. I agree with the everyone’s sentiment that saying only gay actors should play gay roles….totally agree that that is silly. Why then do people get so bent out of shape when a non-trans actor is chosen to play a trans role?

  3. In what universe is Garrett Clayton straight? Certainly not this one.

  4. @Dennis – Umm Neil Patrick Harris? How I met your mother.

    Are gay actors just as brave for playing straight roles? Just a question

  6. Where’s amazing Charlie Hunnam with his hot almost pornographic role in Queer as Folks?

  7. I honestly get so tired of seeing articles like this. All hail the straight actors for actually committing to play the role they were hired to portray. Gay, lesbian, straight, bi, transgender, whatever; if you are an actor and you agree to take a part, then you do it, regardless of what that part is. That’s your job, and you deserve recognition if you do it well, not just because you do what you are supposed to be doing in the first place.

  8. ’10’ is a typo, right? ‘Cause there’s only one straight man on this list. Where in the world would anybody find 10 straight actors?

    I agree with Big Joe. Any actor, with proper training, talent and commitment can play ANY role! For example, Patrick Stewart of “Star Trek: Next Generation” successfully performed the title role in Shakespeare’s “Othello.” with an otherwise Afro-British cast, emphasizing the tragic protagonist’s ‘otherness,’ instead of the color of his skin. The only proviso is that the production remain true to the playwright’s intent.

    Let’s be honest, everyone refers to it as “Bareback Mountain!”

  11. Hello-

    i believe the best actor for a gay character is the one the director
    chooses as the best choice for the role. to say only gay actors should
    play gay characters is like saying only Italian actors should play
    Italians.
