"Oh, she’s used to it! The way we say it in our household, 'Gay pays!' I can’t tell you why I keep getting asked to play gay characters, but I never really considered 'gay' as an adjective, as a playable thing. Maybe it’s an element of the character, but it just describes a preference."

--John Michael Higgins, costar of Fran Drescher in Happily Divorced, talking to New York about getting typecast as gay and how his wife handles it.

 

 

Fran Drescher chats with Out about her new sitcom, gay marriage in N.Y., and what to do when your husband comes out here.
