On the heels of Jodie Foster’s buzzy coming out speech at the Golden Globes, four-time Tony nominee and Argo star Victor Garber has quietly come out.
“I don’t really talk about it but everybody knows,” Garber reportedly told blogger Greg Hernandez of Greg In Hollywood. Interviewing Garber about his new NBC drama Deception, Hernandez brought up a Wikipedia statement that listed artist Rainer Andreesen as Garber’s companion of 13 years. “He’s going to be out here with me for the SAG Awards,” Garber acknowledged, confirming his relationship with Andreesen.
Though Garber’s sexuality was self-admittedly not a secret, especially among peers in the entertainment and theater communities, the Internet picked up the news as something of a quiet coming out for the six-time Emmy nominee.
Garber’s Tony-nominated turns include Damn Yankees, Lend Me a Tenor, Little Me and Deathtrap. He has also appeared on Broadway in Present Laughter, Noises Off, Sweeney Todd, Arcadia, Art and Tartuffe. His extensive film resume includes Argo, Godspell, Milk, Sleepless in Seattle, The First Wives Club, Titanic, Legally Blonde, while his TV credits include Alias, Eli Stone, Web Therapy and mid-season newcomer Deception.
