Actor Michael Gross will become involved in a gay love triangle on the ABC Sunday night drama Brothers & Sisters.

The 63-year-old actor is best known for playing Steven Keaton on the long running NBC sitcom Family Ties, which launched the careers of Michael J. Fox, Justine Bateman and Tina Yothers.

Gross' guest role begins on Sunday, February 13, TV Guide reported.

“I play a gay food critic – something very different for me – and we're hoping it turns into something, because I'm part of a love triangle with Ron Rifkin and Richard Chamberlain. It could be kind of fun.”

“Apparently I have a history with Richard Chamberlain's character,” he explained. “I got to spend a couple of days holding hands with Mr. Chamberlain. My wife was excited too. She would have liked to have done that.”

Rifkin's character of lovable Uncle Saul came out gay in 2007. He recently said that he was charged up when producers asked him to play gay.

The drama has previously broken ground with gay couple Kevin (played by Matthew Rhys) and Scotty (Luke MacFarlane). The couple recently became adoptive parents.
