NBA star comes out by kissing boyfriend on VH1's 'Hit the Floor'
The pro basketball soap opera "Hit the Floor" has dramatized a romance between an NBA superstar and his former agent.
Gay Star News reports that on a recent episode of the VH1 series, character Zero (Adam Senn) passionately kisses Jude (Brent Antonello) after the opening game of the season in front of the team owner, his teammates and the rest of the world.
Zero had declared his love for Jude in the previous episode after having shared a steamy encounter inside of a closet at a team party.
The two first became involved physically last season.
‘He wants to be with Gideon (Zero’s real name), the guy that he knows. Not the Zero, the model with all the girls and stuff like that. It’s bugging Jude a lot,’ Antonello says in a video recapping the episode.
In an interview with Gay Star News last month, Senn said both actors are completely committed to the storyline.
"He’s not only a working colleague but has become a personal friend,’ he said of Antonello. ‘As with any role, no matter the sex, you have to find a relationship with the two characters. Him and I spent a good amount of time together working on the characters and their dynamic and hanging out and being friends in general.
"Regardless of any actor I’m playing opposite, if there is a love dynamic, you better believe there is a spark and there’s emotion behind it."
