Hayes To Host The Tonys

Former WILL & GRACE star SEAN HAYES has shaken off the controversy surrounding a recent Newsweek article which targeted him for playing a straight man on Broadway by landing the hosting job at the Tony Awards.
Hayes, who is up for Best Actor in a Musical for his role in Promises, Promises, will take charge of the big theatreworld prizegiving on 13 June (10) in New York.
The musicals Fela and La Cage aux Folles dominate the nominations.
Openly gay star Hayes hit the headlines earlier this month (May10) when he was named in a article written by popular Newsweek columnist Ramin Setoodeh, in which the writer criticised gay stars playing it straight onstage.
Gay rights activists and stars have joined forces to demand an apology for the piece from Newsweek.
