AFTERELTON asks a just question:
And while it’s not often that AfterElton praises the inclusion of a homophobic character, here, Dererk, to be played by Flash Forward’s Jack Davenport, in this case, we’re happy to see it.
Having Derek be a straight homophobic choreographer not only gives Tom a foil with which to spar, thus giving him more potential storylines, it also deals with the fact that homophobia is still very much a part of American society. And having it be a supposedly sophisticated New Yorker, rather than a stereotypical rural or conservative character behave homophobically, gives it a fresh spin.
Fully agree with Michael Jensen there. It all depends on how this will be written, of course.
And anybody who knows fandom will prepare for a bazillion of “Derek coming out of the closet” fics…
