Ask a Gay: Is It Okay for Straight Guys to Play Gay?
Q: What's the deal with straight actors taking gay roles in movies, like Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor in I Love You Phillip Morris? Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
A: I'm all for it—as long as the movie depicts us gays in a serious light, say Jake Gyllenhaal staging a dramatic confrontation . . . in his underwear. Butt shot optional.
