Jonathan Groff and Sean Hayes Supported by 'Milk' Screenwriter Over Newsweek Article

May 14, 2010 03:35:36 GMT


"Milk" screenwriter Dustin Lance Black has joined a growing list of stars who have slammed editors at Newsweek magazine after a popular columnist criticized gay actors Jonathan Groff and Sean Hayes for portraying straight men. The openly-gay moviemaker won an Oscar for the 2008 film, starring Sean Penn as homosexual politician Harvey Milk, and he's fuming over the controversial piece, which saw columnist Ramin Setoodeh single out "Glee" star Groff and Hayes, who is currently appearing on Broadway in "Promises, Promises".

He's joined forces with Jarrett Barrios, the president of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), to pen a letter to The Hollywood Reporter expressing his anger over the article, which was published last month. They write, "Sadly, he (Setoodeh) seems to raise more questions about his own internalized biases than what the 'public' actually perceives. The public is thrilled with Jonathan Groff's turn as a leading man on Glee... (and) while Setoodeh zeroes in on Sean Hayes on Broadway, he refuses to mention how Americans have embraced the openly gay current and past leading men."

While Michael Jackson tried to keep his three children out of the spotlight during his life, Prince Michael Jackson II aka Blanket and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson have surprisingly appeared in leaked videos. The home-made clips, which apparently were made with web cameras, appeared on YouTube and have since attracted a lot of people to watch them.

Despite speculation that they could be the next YouTube sensation or web stars, their grandfather Joe Jackson has stated that the leaked videos make the family angry. "We don't know who [the hacker] was, but we're trying to find out," he tells Pop Eater by phone. He claims the family "doesn't want the videos on YouTube" and tries to take them down. The family patriarch also completely rules out any chance that Paris and Blanket put them up.
