Alan Cumming plays the main character, Dr. Dylan Reinhart, a behavioral psychologist and ex-CIA agent turned bestselling author who helps the New York police solve crimes including the ongoing narrative thread of a serial killer whose rampage, we recently learned, may not be confined to the city. Apart from a few surface details, like Dylan being bitchily funny and a world-class clothes horse, the character is a standard-issue brilliant and charismatic middle-aged white dude, of a sort that has anchored so many CBS crime dramas over the decades. In fact, Cumming is playing the first openly gay lead on a network drama in the entire history of the medium. Yeah, you read that right. The thing is, Dylan is forced by his context to be as constrained, even sexless, as possible, as if the network is concerned that if they let him be too gay, or just comfortably gay, audiences and by audiences, I mean people over 50, because this is CBS, the broadcast network with the oldest demographic will desert them. The show seems to be setting Dylan up for an affair with an even younger, hunkier man, visiting Nebraska homicide detective Ryan Stock Travis Van Winkle.

In a PSA for the campaign, the "Cabaret" and "Good Wife" star introduces himself as the head of the "Department of Sexual Abstinence" before offering up a few winking and hilarious! The campaign's ultimate goal, officials say, is to urge the FDA to implement a revised blood donation system that screens all donors based on risk for HIV transmission, without limits on sexual orientation or gender identity.
