Maulik Pancholy, ‘30 Rock’ Actor, Comes Out As Gay
"30 Rock" star Maulik Pancholy has come out in the media for the first time, speaking about his long-term partner in a new interview with Out magazine.
The 39-year-old actor made the magazine’s annual “Out 100” list, and told the publication, “I just celebrated my nine-year anniversary with my partner.”
He went on to note that his mood was particularly celebratory “on the heels of the DOMA and Prop 8 decisions.”
Pancholy, who is currently voicing one of the title characters on the animated Nickelodeon series “Sanjay and Craig,” has been the subject of media speculation for some time. In 2012, Out magazine’s Jerry Portwood identified Pancholy, who has played gay characters on “Weeds” and “Whitney,” as an “out actor,” but the 2013 interview marks the first time he’s spoken about it publicly.
Pancholy’s declaration follows that of fellow “30 Rock” veterans Cheyenne Jacksonand Tituss Burgess, who played sassy hairdresser D’Fwan, both of whom are openly gay.
