After “Prison Break” star Wentworth Miller, age 41, came out as gay Wednesday in an open letter addressed to Russia declining an invitation over that nation’s anti-gay law, Luke Mcfarlane is now making headlines as his rumored boyfriend.
Miller and Macfarlane have been linked together since 2007 after Perez Hilton forcibly outed Wentworth and then said the two were dating according to a ‘reliable source.’ In this picture, the two are riding around in the car laughing. In October, Wentworth went on to deny any gay rumors in an interview with German In Style magazine, adding that he would like to have a girlfriend and a family, but for the time being he wanted to focus on acting.
According to the Perez Hilton June 24, 2007 article:
Things between the pair are so serious that the couple are talking about moving in together, we hear.
“They spend a lot of time at each other’s houses,” says our mole. “Wentworth has been pretty reclusive since he’s become famous and he’s been even more of a shut-in since he started dating Luke.”
The pair are so close that McFarlane has even accompanied Miller to Asia to film some recent commercials and adverts, our source tells us.
Luke Mcfarlane, a Canadian actor who played the character Scotty on Brothers & Sisters, bravely came out in a 2008 interview with the Canadian Globe and Mail. Regarding his decision to come out after years of speculation in the press regarding his sexuality, Macfarlane said:
Miller has yet to reveal if he’s dating Macfarlane or anyone in particular at the moment. You can read his ‘coming out’ letter sent Wednesday to the St. Petersburg International Film Fest, declining to participate because of Russia’s anti-LGBT laws.
“I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government,” Miller wrote. “The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.”
*Side Note:If you think you know someone that might be gay, lesbian or bisexual, do not force them out of the closet. Let them decide to come out on their own terms when they are ready. It is no one’s decision but their own to announce their sexuality to you or the world.

ABC’s Brothers & Sisters has its fourth season premiere tomorrow night and gay couple Kevin (Matthew Rhys) and Scotty (Luke Macfarlane) and word has it that they are considering becoming parents.
Both are such good actors and seem like good guys. I first met Luke at the 2007 LA Gay and Lesbian Center Gala. He was not yet out publicly but could not have been nicer. We spoke the next year at a TV Academy event shortly after he came out publicly as a gay man in an interview with the Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail.
He said of coming out: “I’ll say that I decided to do that interview, I decided to answer those questions in an effort to make my life simpler and that’s going to continue to be my motto.”
Scotty Wandell and Kevin Walker had instant chemistry from the minute the financially struggling waiter-turned-chef walked into his law office on a legal matter. He cut through Kevin’s veneer with quirky humor and charm and you knew he had Kevin’s heart when he bit into a red velvet cupcake and smiled at the end of one of their early episodes..
“My whole experience on the show started off as just a few episodes and it’s just become more and more and more and I’m so grateful for that,” Luke told. “…I do know that the fans had a lot to do with Scotty staying around as long as he has so I’m grateful for them.”
I’ve met Matthew om several occasions and it’s always a little surprising to hear him speak in a Welsh accent since Kevin is so Californian.
It just shows what a damned good actor he is!
In one of our interviews, Matthew talked to me about why Scotty and Kevin make such a good couple: “We do have (chemistry). It’s a real joy to work with him, a pleasure. As much as (Kevin and Scotty’s) drama came from their turbulence and the conflict in their relationship, being now in this (committed) relationship opens up a world of drama for them to play out. … What’s great is they really have picked two very diverse characters, the two of us compliment us very well as characters. Kevin can be a little bit uptight at times whereas Scotty, is a little bit too much of a free-spirit. So when the two meet, it makes for humorous times.”

Actor Luke MacFarlane came out in an interview with The [Toronto] Globe and Mail today.
Actor Luke MacFarlane came out in an interview with The [Toronto] Globe and Mail today. The native of Canada, though “terrified” about the future of his career, said to the paper, “I don’t know what will happen professionally, but I guess I can’t really be concerned about what will happen, because it’s my truth.”
MacFarlane is best known for his role as Scotty Wandell, the love interest of Kevin Walker (played by Matthew Rhys) on the ABC drama Brothers & Sisters (Note: A future plot spoiler is below). The actor went on to say, “There is this desire in L.A. to wonder who you are, and what’s been blaring for me for the last three years is how can I be most authentic to myself — so this is the first time I am speaking about it in this way.”
He told the paper: “From a standing-outside perspective, and also as someone who is gay, I think that it’s a very exciting time. How exciting that we’re saying ‘This can be part of the cultural fabric, now,’ because it is two series regulars, two people that you invite into your home and you see every week. It’s telling of the beginning of more waves, and I’m very proud of that.” He does, however, note that a certain irony still exists: While a show featuring a same-sex marriage may be an important step toward building tolerance, it’s still an attention-grabber in today’s television world.
The interview took place during the shooting of the season finale of Brothers & Sisters, in which (here’s the spoiler alert) Scotty and Kevin get married. (The Advocate)
