Sean Hayes wants to put Newsweek controversy behind him

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: In a way, you can’t blame Sean Hayes for not wanting to talk about the Newsweek article in which a writer not only wrote that Sean not convincing as a love interest for Kristen Chenoweth in the current Broadway production of Promises, Promises, but that openly gay men in general are not able to portray straight romantic roles.

Sean, a first-time Tony nominee who is hosting Sunday’s Tony Awards, clearly wants to put the topic behind him which he made clear in a conference call with reporters Wednesday.

According to the LA Times, Hayes called it “asinine” on “The View,” but said Wednesday that he had no plans to discuss it further, on TV or otherwise. … He stuck to that script during Wednesday’s phone call in which he said he’ll keep the Tonys moving along quickly so folks in the audience and at home will be entertained.
