    So what do you think? Can you name any gay actors that you think have played straights convincingly? How about straight actors playing gays?

    Discuss.

    It's a fucking opinion piece and they want an apology! I am sure many gay actors and actresses play straights okay.

    But don't mention Jodie Foster or Kevin Spacey in that lineup. I would never agree! :lol:

    Rock Hudson and Raymond Burr were two that I thought of quickly. So, that makes it possible. Seems to me that Newsweek is about as gay a mainstream magazine as there is. Why would you want to give them grief, particularly when they are about due for bankruptcy. Kill off a generally supportive party. Genius.

    I would imagine that Newsweek is sorry that this group is gay. Being gay brings it's own set of sorrows I suppose.

    I think they should get an apology. After they give one themselves.
