In the interview, posted today on The

of his coming out, “I don't know what will happen
professionally...that is the fear, but I guess I can't really be
concerned about what will happen, because it's my truth.”
MacFarlane currently plays the
recurring role of Scotty Wandell on ABC's Brothers & Sisters.
Scotty was originally conceived as a romantic interest to one of the
brothers, Kevin Walker. The relationship soured as Scotty felt Kevin
was disrespectful. After the couple separated, Kevin pursued other
interests and the pair became friends.
As Kevin entered and exited other

for Scotty continued to grow. It now appears that in the season
finale set to air in May Scotty and Kevin are to wed.
The 28 year old actor refused to answer
any questions regarding his own personal romantic status.
