Paul Iacono, the actor most known for his starring role in The Hard Times of RJ Berger, has come out of the closet.
In an interview with the Village Voice, the 23-year-old actor replied with one simple word when asked if he was openly gay: "Yes." He added, "I'm rolling with the punches here. I was asked if I was comfortable doing gay press. I said, 'Of course.' I didn't think I'd be coming out. But why not now? I think it's the right time to say something."
Although his show was canceled, no worries there. He'll star in another MTV show, Kenzie's Scale, which he compares to a "radical young Will & Grace."
Paul pointed out, "It's about a high school sweetheart couple who move to New York for college. He has this gay awakening when they get there. So they continue living together more as friends than lovers. I believe that in 100 years, none of us will be having to identify ourselves as gay, straight, bi, or otherwise. Sexuality will be a more fluid thing."
