Gay Prince for NBC’s Kings
Following months of delays, NBC’s new royal drama KINGS finally sees the light of day of March 15th. Brought to us by the folks behind Heroes, the program follows an imaginary royal family in an imaginary kingdom that looks oddly like New York City (where it is filmed). While it is still a few weeks from debut, our on-set spies tell us the show’s first season has already wrapped — and it is going to be a doozy. Apparently, the plot centers around a hero soldier (played by Eragon vet Chris Egan) who, in battle, saves the life of King’s son (AKA, Prince Jack Benjamin played by Sebastian Stan, above) and is then rewarded by the King himself with access into all kinds of kindomly powers and goodies — including perhaps the Kingdom! Why doesn’t the king want to give it all to his son and heir like in normal fairy tales? BECAUSE PRINCE JACK IS GAY! Indeed, the first season apparently features not just a gay prince, but a gay princely boyfriend (played by actor Michael Arden) and even royal visits to gay clubs.
While word of Kings’ homo-juiciness has been floating around the web here and there, it has remained, surprisingly, on the DL — with no one quite sure who exactly goes Gay.
We’re not one for outing princes — unless, of course, they are make-believe.
