Luke Perry: From Teen Idol to Hot Gay Nerd
Male frontal nudity was commonplace on Oz, but this was Dylan McKay!
His character was homophobic, but what do you expect from an evangelical preacher?
The versatile actor has been in several other gay-subtext vehicles:
The Triangle (2001): Two buddies (Luke, Dan Cortese) and a third guy get trapped in the Bermuda Triangle.
Jeremiah (2002-2005) about two buddies (Luke, Malcolm Jamal Warner) wandering around in a postapocalyptic world.
Family Guy (2000): When Peter "accuses" Luke Perry of being gay in Meg's school newspaper, he sues them for slander. But he turns out to be gay after all.
Will and Grace (2005): he plays a "hot gay nerd" who Jack dates.
He's a gay ally in real life.
