Actor Aaron O'Connell Gay 'Friendly' For Roles or Closet Gay?
Ok for those who need to be caught up to speed. Aaron O'Connell is a former model turned "actor" on this scripted show on OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) called "The Haves & The Have Nots". His acting is ABHORRENT!!! Which my actor friend told me before the show started that Tyler Perry likes to "test drive" the eye candy male actors himself before he gives them work. And I am inclined to believe Aaron O'Connell got on bended knees and hummed for his character role on that show. His characters name is Wyatt who is being seduced by his closeted gay drug rehab coach. Wyatt (Aaron) is nice on the eyes, but his acting leaves so much more to be desired. I mean it's that bad! I pause myself when his segments come on to try and follow because his acting is so off the mark I get sidetracked. The only time he was convincing was when he was 'acting' gay to find out if his closeted gay drug rehab coach had a secret crush on him.
So I say all that to ask do you all do you think Aaron O'Connell is gay 'friendly' for acting roles or is he a closeted gay? I mean I question all eye candy men apart of a Tyler Perry film that have no real prior acting experience other then being eye candy. Thoughts?
If you always say Are they gay? every time an actor says he is comfortable with gay roles, doesn't care about doing gay scenes, whatever then you will make straight actors uncomfortable and they won't want to take the roles anymore.
A drop-dead gorgeous hunk on a stupid soap opera is a lousy actor. Film at 11.
BTW OP are you on meth or something?
R1 R2 you both missed my point. The show is good, but Aaron's acting SUCKS! (no pun intended). I think he is closeted gay not for his role, but for his bad acting and affiliation with Tyler Perry. I have a friend who turned down a Tyler Perry role because he had to "give up to get in". So I know what goes on at Tyler Perry Films.
You mean to tell me there wasn't a good looking actor with some better/more believable acting skills? Let's be real here this is the Entertainment industry. Tyler chose Aaron, I think, for his own personal reasons. He wanted Aaron to be eye candy and be in a gay love triangle.
I wouldn't be surprised if Aaron took this pic on Tyler's casting couch for his role of Wyatt on "The Haves & The Have Nots".
Not bad, but the face isn't quite up to the body.. just average generic handsome and lacking that spark.
Agree R7 has anyone on here had him or know someone who has?
What R2 meant to say was:
Attractive hunk who wants to be famous willing to sleep with who he needs to to get ahead. News at 11!
As you said yourself it isn't a secret how a lot of eye candy in Tyler Perry movies got there. Didn't Perry basically admit he saw O'Connell in some commercial and he wanted him?
O'Connell is likely mainly straight but bisexual enough to do what he has to.
R9 I agree Aaron doesn't have the best face, but his body I'm sure won him over for Tyler. Tyler definitely has a 'type'.
Is he mixed?
He's not any worse than anyone else on that horrible show, but much easier on the eyes so he's got that going for him.
I don't believe he is bi. I don't buy male bisexuality.
I also wonder if he's mixed, he could pass for Blatino.
I always question the guys who work with Tyler Perry. They are all gorgeous. And probably are bi/heteroflexible.
He's a keeper.
Snake your drain.... ? Clean your pipe? ? He says to the middle age frau... Eyeing him hold melons in grocers
A friend of mine who works on that show (and good news - it's been picked up for another season!) says he claims to be straight, but there's been no girlfriend hanging around.
The show is so badly written and slowly paced, it takes one hour to do what happens in 15 minutes on any other soap. But it has developed a HUGE audience in the black community. Which means the white boy may be written out.... unless he continues to put out.
He dated Kellan Lutz's exgirlfriend Annalynn McCord (I think).
Where's mama when you need her? I need one of her mussy musings for this guy!
Thank you for the tea R18 much appreciated I knew Tyler Perry was digging in that colon, because Aaron is a WHOR-RE-BLE actor!

You have such a lovely way with words...
Nice cock pic of Aaron R24 but if Chris Hemsworth gets called an AWG (Average White Guy) then Aaron O'Connell should be a buttaface (Everything looks good but his face).
Are you guys kidding? He has a gorgeous face. I first saw him in this Liquid Plummer commercial. When I saw that he was going to be on THATHN, I just knew that Tyler had also seen that commercial and had fallen as in lust with him as I did...
