Wentworth Miller (Michael Scofield) is gày and he’s making it public. After his much denial, the hunk finally comes out of the closet with his s€x orientation as he’s been spotted out and about with his rumored gày partner Luke McFarlane over the weekend. Miller and McFarlane have been together for quite a while, but are trying hard to keep their relationship away from public. In fact, the twosome was spotted getting together on Saturday August 25th walking down the streets of Los Angeles and guess what they looked more than just friends. Luke McFarlane is the ex-boyfriend of “Grey’s Anatomy” star T. R. Knight and is best known for his stint as actor Matthew Rhys’ boyfriend on ABC’s “Brothers & Sisters.” He and Miller were first reported dating back in June. Miller has previously told the press he’s not gày, insisted the real reason that he doesn’t date is that his hectic shooting schedule doesn’t allow him any time. Wentworth, who played the lead character Michael Scofield in Prison Break came out as a gay man yesterday August 21 via an open letter to the Saint Petersburg Film Festival, rejecting an invitation to attend a premiere there because of Russia’s recently-passed anti-gày laws.
The 41-year-old actor wrote:
Thank you for your kind invitation. As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes. However, as a gày man, I must decline. I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gày men and women by the Russian government. The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly. Perhaps, when and if circumstances improve, I’ll be free to make a different choice. Until then. Wentworth Miller.
