The actor who played Blaine Anderson on Glee and Andrew Cunanan on The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story said in one of his latest interviews that he would not agree to play these roles if he was offered to do it today. And it does not mean that he regrets about playing them or he thinks that something is wrong with his characters. He enjoyed these two films and the characters were amazing. However, he does not feel it was fair for him as a straight man to play these gay characters while there are so many talented gay actors who could have done it better. Being asked whether he could come back to Glee if it resumes, he responded that if it happens then it will be a totally new show and the cast should be updated as well, but he loved Glee, he still does and he always will, so ‘never say never’.
