Let's speculate the sexual orientation of Shawn Pyfrom!
Why he could be gay/bi:
1. He hangs with the "gay posse" Colton Haynes, Matthew Morrison, JC Chasez, Chace Crawford, Penn Badgely, etc.
2. He LOVES Les Mis
3. There've been rumors about him and Penn Badgely, him and Colton Haynes, etc.
4. Not linked with any girls recently.
Why he could be straight:
1. He might hang with the "gay posse" simply because they all have the same manager?
2. There's just not much evidence on his Twitter that he's into guys or into gay interested, as opposed to Jonathan Bennett, who follows EVERY hot guy on Twitter.
3. He had a fucking BEARD recently (the hairy kind, not the female kind). I don't know any gay guys that grow facial hair!
How come Shawn Pyfrom hasn't been acting lately? What has he been up to?
[quote]He had a fucking BEARD recently (the hairy kind, not the female kind). I don't know any gay guys that grow facial hair!
You literally don't know ANY gay men with facial hair? Trollerina.
Haven't you ever heard of IMDb, R1?
R2, name one confirmed gay male celeb with facial hair (the thick, lumberjack kind, anyway)!
Andrew Van De Kamp from DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES!
r5, pretty much every young gay male I see these days has facial hair. I thought it was de rigueur.
I say gay. The rumors have been there for years, and he pings.
R5 how about Jesse Tyler Ferguson from Modern Family ?
He is an attractive euro-mutt (his heritage as he's american). He needs to work on that body though.
Have you never been to Brooklyn? Gay bearded hipsters abound.
Shawn also wore a JUSTIN BIEBER tshirt to Coachella! Did he do that to be satirical, or is he really a fan of Justin Bieber?!
R7, he's OLD! How about someone YOUNG?
I follow him on twitter. I'm leaning towards gay.
I still have no idea who this is, and I'm not running off to imdb just because the OP and others can't provide any context here.
OP is either really old or from Buttcracke,Flyoveria if he's ignorant of the trendy bearded gay look.
Facial hair is in among young gay men at the moment, and has been for a few years.
I seem to remember him making a point of mentioning his heterosexuality in an interview with AfterElton.
You forgot to mention those homoerotic "paintings." I suspect closet case.
Since nobody else, least of all the OP, can be bothered to provide necessary context for this obscure actor... I'll try:
Below is a pic, but I've never seen him before. So imdb says he was on Desperate Housewives (a show I never watched).... and really just bit parts on other shows.
When talking about obscure, unknown actors, it's best if you include a pic and a brief sentence about where one might have seen or heard of him. It's not rocket-science, and it's not unreasonable.
I find him so attractive. I would eat his ass for hours.
Why would anybody want to eat ANYBODY's ass? There's POOP up there, for Christ's sake! Eww!
What if the person had ass rot?
omg I guess some of gays of a certain age here don't know who Shawn is. Casual veiwers of Desperate Housewives know his face.
Shawn P is a sexy little bitch. I'd totally fuck his brains out. Colton Haynes is a fool for letting Shawn go, but Colton is an opportunist.
I wonder if Shawn is a cunt IRL like he was on DH? He played the role so well. The attitude is part of my attraction to him.
Good parody of a housefrau, R23.
Excuse us while we gays all rim our musky partners...
There were pics of him at some concert with his boyfriend. Plus, he's part of that gay posse who are all represented by the same publicist.
Take a look at this picture, r25.
Colton's facial expression says he is trying to downplay the closeness of their relationship, like "this is just another dude I chill with and we happened to end up together in this photo".
Shawn's facial expression is way more open, like "Im happy to be next to this person and he is important to me". Notice he also has an arm wrapped around Colton.
This tells me all I need to about how the dynamic in their relationship was/is.
[quote]He LOVES Les Mis
Unaccepted. Les Mis is a world wide phenomenon beloved by millions, gay and straight alike. Now if you said obscure Sondheim, like "Merrily We Roll Along", you'd get credit.
He's okay, but he's no Colton Haynes.
[quote]He's okay, but he's no Colton Haynes.
He is more than just ok, bitch!
But really, Shawn might not as handsome as Colton, but Colton just seems very cold.
R30, is Eric Podwall gay?
But he likes Frank Ocean, who is bisexual.
He also likes Justin Timberlake.
I think in general, he likes soul singers. That's his music of choice.
Can't these old queens like R15 go start a thread on some old movie playing now on TCM or something?
It is really tiresome when people come into threads and complain about not knowing who someone is. It's downright insufferable when they'll post multiple times about it, yet claim it's too much of a hassle to google the person.
I remember seeing a pic of him sitting on top of some guy's shoulders. Of course this was at a concert. But still.. it came across as very gay.
He's not as as hot as Justin Timberlake.
Who the fuck is this nonentity with whom you are obsessed ? Where do you queens find these people??
Wearing a Justin Bieber shirt, R41!
But, that could just be in an ironic sense, since he is a hipster.
Maybe a GAY hipster?
All I know is, I never found him convincing as a gay man on Deaperate Housewives. Fuckable yes, believable no.
R45, I never found him convincing as a gay kid either. As an asshole, yes. But gay? No.
But what I didn't like about the way the character was written was that originally, he said he was bisexual. And then, that was totally thrown out the window, and he stayed gay for the whole series, when it would have been more believable to see him with a girl.
So, he likes Justin Timberlake and he wore a Justin Bieber t shirt?
Well, gay or straight, he has no taste.
A lot of people claim to be bisexual when they first come out, then except they're actually gay. Also, how is someone "not believable" as a gay person? Was his interpretation not limp-wristed enough for you?
Accept, not except. Whoops.
r43, nobody forced you to read this thread, bitch! Bye!
r47, the Bieber tshirt thing was clearly a joke when Shawn did it.
Shawn is FAT!
(But in an adorable, cuddly way)
Shawn has a cute little body, anybody looks fat standing next too that manorexic whore Colton Haynes.
Shawn probably made, at most, 17-22k an episode for Desperate Housewives.
At 113 episodes (according to IMDB), let's go with 22k an episode, that brings him to about 2.5 mil. Not bad!
Let's subtract 25% for agent + manager + lawyer. That's 1.875 mil.
Let's factor in residual income. Housewives had a good run, did some network reruns, and sold internationally. Hell, let's be super generous and give him a 50% residual premium. That's 1.25 mil, and it's not commissioned. Nice! If you're keeping score, Shawn is up to 3.125 mil.
And now for taxes... let's say he clears 65%. So he's down to a net of 2 mil. Well, okay, not bad, right?
Well, he started Housewives in 2004, and his work on other projects has been negligible. So you have to assume this is basically his only income during that whole time. So that's 2 mil not just to get you through a decade. 200k/year and he'd be tapped out. 100k/year and he'd be sitting on a 1mil nest egg.
Again, nice, but... hardly the lottery.
And let's remember, when you are young and make all that money at once, you aren't exactly driving a used Honda and splitting the rent with roommates. You are living like you're going to be a star forever.
So remember that being an actor sucks, even if you have a regular gig on a hit show.
if he's like me he is saving half of everything that comes in.
i even save 50% of all the residuals i get.
all the parties and travel is probably most definitely paid by the "hosts" aka rich producers and other richer actors.
my guess is he is living on $50k to $75k a year.
and he must have invested wisely.
Or... he pissed through what he earned as he earned it, and is just scraping by now on what checks come on, which, I promise you, are dwindling to nothing as Housewives runs only in a few international markets now and not at all domestically.
Interesting to have a former child actor posting!
vanessa hudgens will beard for the right amount of money
She's bearding for Austin Butler, whom Shawn currently has the hots for.
Vanessa is their fag hag.
He was in 113 episodes? I never really watched it but I thought he was only recurring.
R95, he started out recurring in the first season, then he was upgraded to regular.
[quote]Housewives runs only in a few international markets now and not at all domestically.
I haven't seen it recently but up until about a year ago it was running on TVGN and some other channel, maybe Lifetime. So presumably he got some residuals from that.
He must have some money if he's going to fashion shows. Although in most of the candid shots I've seen, he was wearing T-shirts and jeans--certainly when he was still with Penn.
Is there a link to his paintings?
He's almost as gay as Bill O'Reilly.
So Shawn doesn't work? He wouldn't be depressed if he had something to focus on besides guys like Colton.
