The gang is back and ready to tackle
gay marriage on Thursday's season premiere of FX's It's Always
Sunny in Philadelphia.
The start of the show's sixth season
began with a gay wedding between the characters played by Danny
DeVito and Charlie Day.
In the episode, Mac (played by Rob
McElhenney) is ditched by a transgender woman (Brittany Danke) to
marry another man.
“My character decides that he is
going to fight their union in court because he feels it's a gay
marriage,” McElhenney told GregInHollywood.com's
Greg Hernandez earlier.
“I get married in season six, yup,
yeah,” DeVito told the AP. “Don't ask me her name because it
ain't a her.”
In fact, it's the character of Charlie,
played by Day. The two men get a domestic partnership to qualify for
“It's a very difficult road that
they're going down,” McElhenney said.
“Dennis (Glenn Howerton) also gets
married. And that is sort of the satirical look at marriage in this
country and how difficult it was for Carmen, the transgender woman,
to wind up getting married,” he added.
