This Young Ginger Sailor Is Now a Major Sitcom Star — Who Is He? (PHOTO)

Before this man graced your TV screens, he was a staple of Broadway and off-Broadway theater. Pictured here in the late-’90s Broadway revival of "On the Town," this 38-year-old is fresh-faced, ginger-haired, and adorable in a sailor suit.

He posted this flashback photo to Instagram, mentioning his co-star in the process — Orange Is the New Black's Lea Delaria. She regrammed the photo, adding, "#cradlerobber."

While now this star has played a lawyer-dad on a hit sitcom for five seasons now, he still works on the stage, as well! He just balances being an Emmy-nominated screen actor with his still-thriving stage career and his tireless activism work for LGBT equality. He's a busy guy!

Need a hint? He got married to his longtime boyfriend this past July, but the lucky fella might get to have two weddings in one year! His character on his hit sitcom is about to tie the knot, too.

Got your guess ready? Click through for the reveal!
