He finds himself immediately at loggerheads with Ripley Holden (David Morrissey, left), the arcade's somewhat seedy owner -- and prime suspect; eventually he falls in love with Ripley's depressed, neglected wife.
I could do without the big reveal -- why not have everyone know he is gay throughout, rather than having us endure another long, boring "I'm tired of hiding" speech? But I like Danny being a rather dim working-class lout rather than a Hollywood gay stereotype. And I liked Ripley's reaction. He gains a new insight into his son, the two become closer than before, and in the end -- after the murder is solved -- he gives Danny the arcade.
In 2011-2012 he starred in the medical drama Monroe as an unconventional hospital porter. He hasn't appeared nude elsewhere.
