A few weeks ago, Keith Hamilton Cobb said that it was no big deal to play a gay character on Noah's Arc. In a new interview by Dana Caprina at Gay Chicago, he explains more about his decision to take on the role of Quincy.
KHB says that he always wanted "to play a full-on gay character in all his glory, in all his gayness, all his strengths, weaknesses, sexuality, every part of it." Until now, he says, the main problem has been the roles have not been multi-dimensional. "I am not going to play a character who is hugely effeminate just for the sensational value the same way that I would not play a gangbanger on thug without you giving me a reason."
An actor who refuses to cater to stereotypes. Gotta love him.
