Superboy in West Hollywood
One of the more obscure was Superboy (1988-92), a syndicated reboot that was, for obvious reasons, very popular in West Hollywood.
It sends the teenage Clark Kent to Schuster University (named after his creator), where he rooms with Daily Planet editor Perry White's son T. J. (James Calvert), moons over co-ed Lana Lang (Stacey Haiduk), and butts heads with villain-to-be Lex Luther (Sherman Howard).
23-year old stage actor John Haymes Newton was not quite as muscular as other Men of Steel, but he was handsome, and he could fill out a Superman costume better.
In fact, he's probably the biggest Superman of all time.
And in 2004-2005, he played the gay Jonathan Lithgow on Desperate Housewives.
The series lasted another year before folding.
No particular gay content in his work. Boy Culture has an article about meeting him at a Hollywood Autograph Show, surrounded by gay fans asking him to sign revealing swimsuit photos.
