18 Gays Gone From TV Too Soon Zachary Quinto Fred Savage


The editors over at have compiled a list of 18 gay characters who went missing from the small screen too soon after their shows were canceled.

Leading the list is Fred Savage, who starred in the short-lived comedy Crumbs as a 20-something who is afraid to come out to his mom (the wickedly funny Jane Curtin) because she just got sprung from the loony bin. Crumbs would have fared better if the jokes had been just a tad more risque, and it was ultimately yanked from ABC's lineup after one season.

Other folks on the list include a pre-Heroes Zachary Quinto as Tori Spelling's gay bestie Sasan on the semiautobiographical So NoTORIous and Zeljko Ivanek as Ray Fiske, the closeted lawyer who offed himself in the first season of the Glenn Close drama Damages.
