I’m sure most Hollywood insiders have known this for some time now, but Maulik Pancholy is making it official. The 30 Rock and Weeds actor is not only coming out but also revealing he’s been with his partner for nine years. The 39-year-old is part of OUT magazine’s OUT 100 list this year.
“I just celebrated my nine-year anniversary with my partner,” Pancholy shared with OUT. “It feels like a nice time to be celebrating something like that, especially on the heels of the DOMA and Prop 8 decisions.”
Since playing Jack Donaghy’s overprotective assistant Jonathan, Maulik has found another regular gig. He’s voicing the title character on Nickelodeon’s animated series Sanjay and Craig which was renewed for 2014. How funny is it that he’s playing another character named Sanjay after playing one on Weeds?
Others making OUT’s list this year are Glee’s Jonathan Groff, American Horror Story‘s Denis O’Hare, comedienne Lea DeLaria, comic and TV reporter Mo Rocca, Suburbatory’s Rex Lee, Scandal’s Guillermo Diaz, and many more. For more, head over to OUT.com.
