In a strange parallel, Bierdz was warned to stay in the closet by producers on the show in the '80s, and is now being hired specifically to play gay and, one assumes, for the added PR that entails his real-life sexuality.

Side note: In retelling Bierdz's life story, Globe talks about how a younger brother murdered their mother and then classily reports that his older brother "committed suicide by blowing his brains out." Whatever happened to "took his own life?"
