Sebastian Stan played the problem gay son on short-lived Kings too. But his character was closeted with little family support. Now he’s an out problem son of a nation’s leader (the only thing his family supports is his sexual orientation).
The next logical step is either for him to play a perfect out son or a male-to-female transitioned daughter of a nation’s leader (except don’t give the girl anymore problems than come with being an under represented T in a more highlighted LGB club, please).
Could happen soon. Political Animals is only a mini-series, after all.
