Andrew Rannells, Justin Bartha, & 'New Normal' Cast: 'Vogue' Feature!

Check out the cast of The New Normal in this new feature for Vogue magazine’s October 2012 issue, which features cover gal Keira Knightley.

The show’s creator Ryan Murphy spoke with the mag about the series and its stars Andrew Rannells, Justin Bartha, Georgia King, Ellen Barkin, NeNe Leakes, and Bebe Wood.

Andrew’s character is clearly me,” Ryan said. “Ali Adler, who is the co-creator, is very good at writing me, which is interesting to read. I’m like, ‘Really? I say that?’ It’s a mind trip.”

“Of course we tested it with an audience in Burbank,” Ryan said of a scene in the pilot where two male characters kiss. “And it was the lowest-testing scene in the pilot. Everybody was like, ‘You are going to have to cut that scene if you want to get picked up.’ But then NBC said, ‘Do not touch it. We love it. It’s important.’ And I thought, Wow, it’s a different world than when I was fifteen, watching Paul Lynde on Hollywood Squares.”

    This show is so smart, love it.

  • please…

    Justin is not gay! He is a great actor and should be applauded for playing a gay man. I bet he is a real man!

    So being gay doesn’t mean you’re a “real man”?
    Gay is a sexual orientation, a definition of what sexual attraction one has, it says nothing about a person. Saying that you’re gay doesn’t mean that a person looks, dresses, acts, talks, sounds, reacts, or does anything a certain way. Gay people are stereotyped too much, and this needs to stop. What makes a “real man” is the self-respect, values, kindness, and utmost respect he has for himself and other people.

    Who cares if they’re gay? Anyway, is that Ellen Barkin? She looks 25 years old! Photoshopping? Good genes?
