Scott Herman Didn’t Even Realize He Was a Gay Ally. Surprise!

Scott Herman is an easy guy to love, and not just because his YouTube fitness videos can be used for things other than exercise. Mostly, the Real World: Brooklyn alum has been busy teaching heterosexual Americans that gays are cool folks.

In a lengthy interview with Wicked Gay Blog (click the link for part two), Scott revisits his entire pre-Real World history, like how he was always focused on protecting the gay kids in school persecuted by bullies. We’ve very easily jaded by heterosexuals trying to be our BFFs; Scott, however, is the real deal.

Too bad, then, that the actor-hopeful’s dream of being Captain America have just been shattered: The Office‘s not-so-buff John Krasinski is expected to score the role.
