“New Girl’s” Max Greenfield talks about his gay roles

HollywoodNews.com: Michael Jensen, who stepped down last week as editor of AfterElton.com after a stellar six-year run, recently interviewed actor Max Greenfield who is one of the cast members of the new hit sitcom New Girl.

The adorable actor first gained notice as Officer Leo on Veronica Mars then had a pair of gay roles. First he was frat boy Calvin’s first on-screen kiss on Greek and last season, he guested on ABC’s Happy Endings as Max’s boyfriend.

Here is an excerpt from his interview with Michael:

AE: Well, we’re really appreciative with what you’ve done with gay roles, because even though it’s 2011 it’s a whole lot better than it was 10 years ago. There are still actors out there that wouldn’t do one, let alone multiple gay roles, so it’s really easy to be nice to you and write about you.

MG: Well it’s important. A lot of people in my life are gay, and I love them all dearly, and you kind of feel that responsibility when you take on the role to take it as seriously as you possibly can. Really respect it and play it to the best of your ability.
