Mazel tov, Maulik Pancholy! The actor, best known as Jonathan, the stressed-out, slightly obsessed assistant to Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) on "30 Rock," confirms in the new issue of Out magazine that he's gay. Even better? "I just celebrated my nine-year anniversary with my partner," Pancholy, 39, tells Out. "It feels like a nice time to be celebrating something like that, especially on the heels of the DOMA and Prop 8 decisions."
Now voicing title character Sanjay on Nickelodeon's animated hit "Sanjay and Craig," Pancholy first made his mark to national TV audiences on "Weeds" -- playing another Sanjay, this one a pot dealer.
After seven beloved seasons "30 Rock" aired its finale episode in January of this year.
Pancholy is among the high-profiles names of LGBT individuals on this year's OUT100. Other inspirational gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people named to the list include "Glee" star Jonathan Groff, "American Horror Story" actor Denis O'Hare, comedienne Lea DeLaria, comic and TV reporter Mo Rocca, "Suburbatory" actor Rex Lee, "Scandal" star Guillermo Diaz, and many more.
