Openly gay John Barrowman was too straight for part of Will on Will and Grace…

John Barrowman, the gay star of Doctor Who was told he was “too straight” to play the part of Will in the hit US comedy Will and Grace.

Barrowman plays Doctor Who’s bisexual sidekick Captain Jack Harkness, says that offering the lead role of Will  straight actor, Eric McCormack was the age old story of “homophobic” Hollywood.

“The sad thing is it’s run by gay men and women,” he added.

Now i will say it is hard to imagine anyone else playing Will, although we could be saying the same thing had Borrowman played the part. Shows like that are all about the chemistry so who knows, but i do agree about homophobic Hollywood. It is run by gays and lesbians and they eat their own. 

When i was a young buck and doing some modeling in NY, i saw it time and time again. All the agents and casting directors were queer, and they jizzed their pants over the “straight” models (as if there is such a thing ;) hoping to get into their pants or even more importantly, make it look like they were (which was quite hysterical because there was a reason they were behind the scenes; i.e. they were not camera friendly ;) but they threw their own under the bus.
