Alan Tudyk: Gay-Positive, Muscular, and Funny
Born in 1971, the Texas native first drew attention on Broadway, when he starred in Epic Proportions (1998), about two guys in love with the same girl during the filming of a 1920s Biblical epic. Theater is still his first love; he has appeared in Wonder of the World, The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told (with a gay Adam and Steve), Spamalot and Prelude to a Kiss. But he's best known for movies:
Gay-vague sidekick Wat in the Medieval farce A Knight's Tale (2001).
Simon in the gay-themed farce Death at a Funeral (2007).
Gay-vague hillbilly harassed by college kids in Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (2010).
Navigator-sidekick Wash on the sci-fi-Western Firefly (2002-2003).
Though he's played gay characters several times, Alan is not personally gay. Or a hillbilly. Or a dentist.
