Quote of the Day

[Trigger warning for homophobia and violence.]

"I was doing Six Feet Under, and I was playing a gay character, and I had some love scenes that I did on that show—I would go home and they'd be like, 'Yeah, yeah, we've seen the show, we've seen the show, it's good, it's good.' And I got home after doing Dexter and people were just like jumping out of their skin. They're, like, so much more comfortable with me killing people than kissing men. It's not that surprising, I guess. Sad."—Actor Michael C. Hall, on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon [at 27:25] earlier this week, observing the total fuckery of getting a better reception playing a sociopathic serial killer than a sexually active gay man.
