Justin Bartha never set out to make a political statement when signing on to play a gay, expectant father on NBC's "The New Normal." "It's interesting that television really has swayed the conversation," Bartha said of marriage equality. "You're just trying to make entertainment." The series uses humor to tackle social issues like homophobia. Last week's episode examined the Boy Scouts of America's ban on gay members.
