The gay characters played by Justin
Timberlake and Jason Sudeikis married on Sunday's episode of The
Producers of the Fox animated series
tackled gay marriage in the episode titled Terry Unmarried.
In the episode, the gang celebrates
Cleveland's being single because his wife Donna's divorce was never
legally finalized. They run into co-worker Terry Kimple (voiced by
Sudeikis) kissing another man, Paul (Timberlake), at a gay bar.
Cleveland and Donna join Terry and Paul
in tying the knot in Vermont, but not before Cleveland tackles his
feeling on his friend's sexuality.
“You know what bugs me about this
whole thing,” Cleveland tells Terry and Paul, “neither of you
seems gay. Gays should make their gayness obvious to everyone. Like
Paul Lynde or Adam Lambert or every conservative politician ever.”
an interview with gay glossy The Advocate, Sudeikis, a
Saturday Night Live regular, said he's thrilled to be working
“I saw him [Timberlake] at SNL
when he came for the first episode of this season, and we hadn't seen
each other since we had recorded that episode, so I was like, 'Hey my
gay boyfriend!' Then we shared a tender embrace. When I first heard
they were getting Timberlake to play Terry's love interest, I was
like, 'Perfect! Terry should be so lucky.'”
Sudeikis added that his character's
sexuality “won't dominate the storylines.”
“It's almost like when Ellen came out
in The Puppy Episode, but then it became something that was
just part of the character,” he said.
