“Hung” star Thomas Jane feels proud to have a long gay kiss on screen

HollywoodNews.com: Anyone who has ever seen Thomas Jane’s make-out scene with Vincent D’Onofrio in the film The Velocity of Gary knows that the Hung star is not afraid to take on a gay role.

But he raised a few eyebrows recently when he chatted with Vulture about his series Hung, and said: “I told HBO, the year I end up with a penis in my mouth is the last year of the show.”

Vulture caught up with Jane this week and he was eager to clarify things: “Of course, everything I said was meant in good humor, good fun. You know, I’m a fan of the gay community, just because I’ve grown up in Hollywood around them, I have family members who are gay, really good friends, co-workers, a lot of the writers on Hung are gay, so it’s amusing to think, obviously I would never be able to tell HBO what to do, or the writers how to write the character. But for me, it’s an expression of what I find interesting about the show.”

He points out that his male prostitute character of Ray becomes a conduit for two Midwestern women to express their sexual feelings for each other in one of the episodes, and in one of the other episodes, he dates a transgender woman.
