Post Marcus Lycus
I'm trying to settle a bet with my friend. I believe that Marcus Lycus is gay. In most productions I've seen, the actor playing him made him at least a little bit gay, but my friend doesn't believe me. :roll: Can I get some backup?

I think it's mannerisms that the actor chooses to add to the role. I'm fairly certain it wasn't written that way, but it's really the actors decision.

John Carradine and Phil Silvers certainly dont come off gay.

Depends on whether you mean gay or flamboyant. Pimps can be flamboyant without being gay, and let's face it, Lycus is a "procurer," no matter what you dress him in.
