Although Michael was one of three hunks considered to play a gay character, the job went to Trevor Donovan instead. But here’s why Michael would have relished playing the part!

Trevor Donovan may have gotten the tough job of playing a closeted gay character on 90210 this season, but – shockingly – his fellow cast member Michael Steger actually WANTED to be the guy who went gay on the hit CW show!

“I think I would have approached it organically and honestly. I would have been excited!” the 30-year-old actor told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock event in Los Angeles Sept. 27, adding, “Trevor Donovan has a pretty amazing storyline coming up and I think that is going to be really cool to see how it unfolds.”

But would Michael have done something different with the role? “I would have approached it in a similar way and obviously allow it to grow through the storytelling!” he told us.

But before those inevitable gay rumors crop up, hold your horses: Michael is actually a married man! When we asked how he makes his relationship with wife Brandee Tucker work, he said, “Definitely communication…and for guys, pay attention to the trivial things! Girls always like looking at the fine print. So you do that and you are good to go!”
