It’s been a while since we’ve peeked in on angst-y teen homo Luke Snyder from As the World Turns, mostly because he dyed his hair brown and stopped being cute (it’s true). AND – because he’s been with his muppet/boyfriend, Noah, for OVER A YEAR NOW and they STILL haven’t had sex. I mean, soap or no soap, I HAVE MY LIMITS.
But this month is sweeps, you know– and, by God, if they didn’t PULL ME RIGHT BACK IN with this shocker! Just watch the video and you too will recoil in homphobic horror as LUKE’S NEW GRANDFATHER puts the moves on him – EWWWWWW – when Luke is all drunk and shirtless because he’s been expelled from school. And, yes, playing Gramps is soap veteran Laurence Lau, best remembered as Greg Nelson, one-half of Greg and Jenny Nelson – one of All My Children‘s biggest (and most tragic) supercouples of the ’80s. And if you never suspected back in the day that Laurence swung that way, just check out this picture and tell me again how shocked you are that he’s mackin’ on his grandson…. Poor Luke, though. Will he never have a moment of happiness?
