What are your thoughts about straight actors playing gay characters? Do you feel the same way about the reverse, gay actors in straight roles?

Tis silly. *nod* I'm gay and I, for one, love it when GOOD straight actors play gay. Like Chita Rivera's recent appreance on Will & Grace playing an older lesbain (Chita's like in 70's btw even though she looks in her 40's) The woman is a broadway legend and I love her. So for someone that great to be playing a lesbain even if it is only a one-shot guest part. I'm happy!

And Portia De Rossi plays Nell in Ally MacBeal, straight character, lesbain actress... Of course she's played loads of other straight rolls.
