Justin Bartha has said he's proud of his role playing a gay dad on NBC's The New Normal.

NBC will premiere the much anticipated comedy from Glee creator Ryan Murphy on Monday.

In the show, David (played by Justin Bartha, The Hangover) and Bryan (Andrew Rannells, Broadway's Book of Mormon) begin their quest to start a family as Goldie (Georgia King) and her daughter escape the clutches of her overbearing and homophobic grandmother (Ellen Barkin) from small town, Ohio to Los Angeles.

The down-on-her-luck single mom arrives just in time to help the couple fulfill their dream.

In an appearance on The Stephanie Miller Show, Bartha told John Fugelsang that he had no anxiety in taking on the role.

β€œI mean I didn't,” Bartha said. β€œIt was one of the best things I'd ever read. We're in the fifth episode right now. It's some of the greatest things that I've ever made. I've never been more proud of anything. It's just not in my kind of wheelhouse to be scared about that kind of stuff. I love a little challenge, even if you call it a challenge, and I don't think sexuality really defines a character like that.” (The video is embedded on this page.
