People always think I'm Jewish and changed my last name from Rabinowitz.
People have to do things in their own time, and that's what I did.
People think they know who I am, because I've played so many very, very out gay men on stage, and they think that's me.
There are some people that the press like to pick on and not just the gay press, but the press in general. And some people, the press just doesn't care about at all.
I think of myself as an actor and not a movie star. I like doing movies; I enjoy it. But, essentially, I'm a theater actor. That's the only place I feel like I actually am a star. In the theater, I can put people in the seats and sell tickets.
Sure I think it is healthy to speak the truth, and be who you are, and be proud of that.
I can remember seeing the movie for the first time at a revival house in L.A. and laughing with everyone else, and never imagining that I would be doing Max one day, even though by then I had already memorized the entire movie.
My oldest brother used to take me to the theater. The first play he took me to see was 'Black Comedy,' then he took me to see 'Butley.' We'd see all these British plays. And 'Hello, Dolly,' with Pearl Bailey. I was unconsciously thinking, 'Gee, I would love to be able to do that.
I didn't know Charlie before doing the movie, but I was a huge fan of the British Queer as Folk.
Look, I'm 40, I'm single, and I work in musical theater - you do the math!
A sitcom is the closest thing for me to doing stage because you work in front of an audience, and if it's well written it can be very satisfying.
The more competition, the better. I hope to get snubbed again this year.
There's a freedom there and an understanding of my career and the things I've done. I'm seen here as primarily a comic actor, which is OK, but I can go to New York and I do something that's very emotional. It would be lovely at some point to do something like that on film.
