Colton Haynes Says Hollywood Casts Actors Based on Sexuality
0 0

Colton Haynes was the rising star in Hollywood.  He was typecasted as the bad boy with rippling muscles in Teen Wolf and Arrow.  Then, he vanished.

And he says he lost out on a number of jobs simply because he revealed he's gay.  He was outed in May 2016 and, since then, faded from television.  He did make an appearance in the final three episodes of Teen Wolf, though.

Colton unleashed a series of tweets saying the industry focuses more on a star's personal life than their ability to act. He also thanked Ryan Murphy for giving him a chance to continue his career by casting him in Scream Queens and American Horror Story. 

Still, Colton says the industry has to change and producers need to be more accepting of a sexually and ethnically diverse talent pool.  Does he have a point?

Warning: Tweets contain strong language that may be considered offensive to some.
