    Here’s another one. Surprisingly harder to find homosexual actors playing heterosexual roles in movies than in television shows. What’s up with that? Same rules apply to the others of course, no homophobia, yada yada yada.

    He said on Playboy that he was not gay.

    Timon was straight?! I didn’t realize this…especially since he lives with another male animal…

    Well, I haven’t read Tolkien, but Gandalf is straight? I thought he’s kind of asexual

    A lot of straight people live with other straight people of the same sex. Ever heard of roommates? And also it’s a kids’ film.

    What’s wrong with gay characters in a kid’s film? Can’t wait to hear your answer.

    I agree to the one who said we dont know Gandalf is straight or gay. I think he has no sexuality

    The only film that was for kids but had a gay character in it (as far as I knew) was ParaNorman. But there’s nothing per se wrong with it, but kids are most likely not going to be thinking of the sexual orientation of the characters onscreen, instead just being invested in the characters/humor/story, so hence, something like that is, I think, irrelevant. Besides, I always thought Timon was straight. He did have a crush on a female meerkat in one episode of the Timon & Pumbaa T.V. series.

    I’d say the kids have got it right.

    Wow.  The fact the Nathan Lane in The Lion King has to be one of the options here shows how slim the pickings are…

    I could see one not knowing about Sarah Paulson’s relationship with Cherry Jones, because it was when Paulson was VERY unknown.  But you didn’t know NATHAN LANE was gay?  Haha come on now…

    Quinto was the one that shocked me when he came out so I give him the biggest props. He was very flamboyant on the first season of American Horror Story so I give him props for Star Trek
