Heroes' Zachary Quinto: I'm a Gay Man

Zachary Quinto

Zachary Quinto came out in an interview with New York magazine, unambiguously citing his sexual orientation for the first time while addressing different topics.

When discussing his recent eight-month stint playing Louis Ironson — a man who abandons his AIDS-stricken boyfriend — in Angels in America, the former Heroes star called the role "the most challenging thing I've ever done as an actor and the most rewarding," but also says it opened his eyes. "And at the same time, as a gay man, it made me feel like there's still so much work to be... read more

Lisa Edelstein on Leaving House and Her Good New Role: "I Just Move On"

Lisa Edelstein, Good Wife

After years of playing second fiddle to Hugh Laurie's selfish, outspoken misanthrope on House, Lisa Edelstein is ready to have some similar fun of her own.

"I loved playing Cuddy for all this time, but I definitely wanted to shift out of that, because I've been playing this sort of repressed control freak for seven years," she tells TVGuide.com. "I want to have a little bit of fun."

Edelstein shocked House fans earlier this year when she announced she was hanging up her stethoscope after seven seasons — essentially leaving the complicated "Huddy" relationship unresolved. (The last fans saw of Cuddy was when House was driving his car into her dining room, so complicated may be an understatement). Now, just six months after her departure, Edelstein is already back on the small screen with a multi-episode arc on The Good Wife.

The Walking Dead Looks for Life After Frank Darabont

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead's first season ended with a number of unanswered questions, but as the zombie drama lumbers toward its Season 2 premiere (Sunday, 9/8c, AMC), there's really only one question to be answered: Can the show live on after the exit of executive producer Frank Darabont?

Darabont, who spent years developing Robert Kirkman's graphic novel series for the small screen, was suddenly relieved of his showrunner duties in the middle of production on Season 2 and replaced by his No. 2, Glen Mazzara (The Shield). Even more confounding, the change came days after Darabont appeared at Comic-Con to promote the show. But just like the survivors of the zombie apocalypse, the show's cast and crew keep moving.
