Gay Actors Playing it Straight

How did I sleep on the controversy created from a homophobic Newsweek essay last week? 

Kristin Chenoweth, 473; Newsweek, 0. Yeah, that’s a blowout score, but there’s no other way to tally the points after reading the magazine’s recent piece by Ramin Setoodeh, which argues that openly gay actors like Sean Hayes and Glee‘s Jonathan Groff, pictured right, can’t successfully portray heterosexual characters, and the scathing and spot-on response posted Friday by Chenoweth, who costars with Hayes in Broadway’s Promises, Promises.

Apparently, Setoodeh is new to the whole gay actors playing it straight tip that Hollywood has been peddling for what?  Like 50 years?
