The 27-year-old actor recently spoke with the LA Times about coming out as a gay man. He shared, “Ultimately everyone has their own journey. The more people that come out the better, because it makes it easier for the next generation of people coming out, and it makes [straight] people more comfortable with it, the more people they know. But at the end of the day, if people don’t want to come out, it’s their personal choice. I feel really blessed to be living in 2012. Certainly there’s a long way to go, but I feel really positive about how, even in the last 10 years, being gay has become more accepted.”

Jon has joined the cast of Starz’s original series Boss for the second season as the assistant to Chicago Mayor Tom Kane (Kelsey Grammer). Don’t miss it!
