`SENSITIVE GUY' TV ROLE FOLLOWED BY TENDER DEBUT

Peter Horton, who played sensitive guy Gary Shepherd on "thirtysomething," shows his tender side in his directorial debut, a movie about AIDS called "The Cure." "We did not make a movie about a boy dying of AIDS," Horton told the Daily News of Los Angeles. "We made a movie about a boy who has AIDS who, through his friendship with his next-door neighbor, is able to have a childhood, a period of normalcy as a kid." "The Cure" opens Friday.
