Ben Savage and DEN creep Marc Collins Rector?!

On other sites it is being said that Ben Savage appears in the new documentary about Hollywood pedophiles, Open Secret. Supposedly he is shown in footage of a Marc Collins Rector boy party. Has anyone seen the doc- can you confirm? I like him and hope he wasn't hanging out with those creeps.

I don't know but Ben seems really fem. is he gay?

Forgot to mention that Michael Huffington (Arianna's ex-husband) and David Geffen are also in the film, supposedly

Yeah, I thought it was well known that he's gay. He's over 30, he's never had a public romance, and he gushes over One Direction more than DataLounge.

Yes, I also heard Ben Savage was apparently part of that. He's got some explaining to do.

It's not in LA. I would pay to see this.

I don't know, judging by who he follows on Twitter, there isn't much that would indicate to me that he's gay.

On the other hand, one of the first people he follows is Lance Bass, before his brother Fred.

David Geffen is in the doc, too

How come Bill Cosby gets slammed but these homosexuals get to rape and drug boys?

From what I gather, twinks flock to these parties to try and get a foot in the door. The media has no sympathy for male rape victims, especially gay ones, especially gay ones who came to seduce older men.

What ever happened to the documentary about ex gay chorus boys and Broadway performers? It was finished and supposed to open, but then vanished.

So, besides Ben's past as one of Bryan Singer's boys, does anyone like or have younger family who likes Girl Meets World? There was lots of buzz and I'm interested to see how it turned out, but cannot bring myself to watch the Disney channel at my age. Heard Mr Feeny guest starred, which I'm sure was great.

"How come Bill Cosby gets slammed but these homosexuals get to rape and drug boys?"

Um, HELLO, Bill Cosby got away with being a rapist for decades without anyone calling him out on it. He's probably been a rapist since before Bryan Singer was born.

"media has no sympathy for male rape victims"

[quote]You must have been living in a cave during the Penn State/Jerry Sandusky hysteria

I'll agree that my statement is untrue as written and needs qualification. That was different scenario. Sandusky got it on with little boys in his care...well below legal age. You're asking the public, in this instance, to sympathize with almost legal GAY teens who knowingly went to a GAY Hollywood party to "hang out" with successful older men. Especially after Singer made it go away!? This will never come up again.

Also check the Thread Watcher help link for quoting assistance.

r19, at least one of the Bryan Singer victims loudly proclaims that he is straight. The one with the homophobic lawyer.

Although I agree that gay victims are not seen as sympathetic as straight ones. Straight men think the worst thing that can happen to them is to be touched by another man.

I remember reading in comments of a post on Per.ez Hylton (don't judge me!) years ago that Ben Savage is gay. The comment wasn't especially dishy - just about meeting him out while he was attending university.

by Anonymousreply 22November 24, 2014 3:32 AM

^ Yeah, it wasn't a surprise to me that he was gay - years ago a DLer posted a pic of him at a gay bar with a guy. I think the bar was Fiesta Cantina....anyhow, the gay stuff wasn't a shocker, I just had no idea he had any ties to those DEN guys.

The footage is supposedly of him arriving and being grabbed by the ass but whatever guy. Footage was from 1999. So, dependent on month was 18 or 19.

There was a rumor both brothers held stock in DEN. I didn't find the original source.., sooo Ben went off to college and returned to Weho in 2004ish. Do you guys not remember he was nearly cast in Bryan Singers "superman" as jimmy olsen. But then the "script changed" and Jimmy was not in it?

Until we hear more, it almost feels like he was payed to keep quiet. i mean...

Oh look everyone, another gay witchhunt in the making. I find it hilarious that the focus on all these things are gay men and Bill Cosby. Because gay men and Bill Cosby must be taken down because they are the only ones fucking people who want to get their foot in the door to the entertainment industry. Ridiculous.

All the stuff I learned about DEN/Marc Collins Rector I learned years ago on Datalounge.

I believe it was to go to Shawn Ashmore. He couldn't do it due to X-Man 3 and it went to Sam Huntington who is friends with Aaron. Also Aaron's roommate co-wrote "Superman Returns" .

Someone here mentioned Ben following Lance Bass on Twitter. Lance Bass used to date Ben's "Boy Meets World" co-star Danielle Fishel (Topanga) in the late 90s/early 2000s, way before he came out. So it could be that they are just friends from that era. Or possibly they fooled around behind Topanga's back?

R56 - DEN was the acronym for Digital Entertainment Network - the company started by the Collins-Rector guy. It was somewhat ahead of its time. Offered a kind of internet streaming service - but back then most people still had dial up internet and the speeds just weren't fast enough. So it never took off. And lost a bucketful of dough.

But it had big bucks invested by some major players during the start-up phase - and oh the parties, the parties, the parties...

The whole 'An Open Secret' documentary is now online. You should definitely watch it. And keep in mind that hardly any of the predators were ever prosecuted. And those that were got really light sentences.

by Anonymousreply 61October 17, 2017 7:13 PM

I've seen the documentary. It was on YouTube when I saw it. There is a brief clip that shows Ben Savage but it only lasts for a few seconds. If you can find it online, watch it. It's an eye-opener. This shit needs to stop.

Well between Ben Savage being associated with the pedos of DEN, Will Friedle and Danielle Fishell making racial jokes about Trina McGee and Maitland Ward now being a porn star. I have to say that this taints my fond childhood memories of watching Boy Meets World. So far Rider Strong and Matthew Lawrence have been clean.

Seann William Scott got one of his first acting breaks in a show called "Chad's World" produced by DEN. It's fucked up these pedos hid behind the guise of being pro-gay and created a gay-themed network to commit their crimes.
