You guys do realize he was also one of the leads on a cable sci-fi show until last year? He's been filming treacly Hallmark movies during the hiatus from that for years. He's not Tom Cruise, but he's enjoying more success than most actors, including his two most prominent exes in recent years.

I loved that LM workout thread. The "hot gossip" that Macfarlane was on track for a superhero role (in the Marvel universe?) was from "an industry insider" who described his jobs as "making copies of scripts." Or something similar.

It felt like the good old days on DL.

I just started watching The Night Shift where Luke plays half of a gay couple - and I'm a fan. Not only is he pretty, but he's pretty good in this role. I'll probably watch something else of his after I'm done with this show, maybe Killjoys.

Luke has opened his Instagram page! (But you might need to log in in order to see the posts.) It had been private for the longest time. But it's not very revealing. He's posted twice in the past week, after a 3-year absence. No mentions of a partner or husband.

Isn't that what we want? For so long we were always hearing that nobody will buy a gay actor as a romantic lead. The fact that he is tapping that audience is great news to me.

by Anonymousreply 4604/17/2020

So what happened with the big superhero role? Did he get it? His last project was a hallmark Valentine's movie months ago.

His IG is incredibly boring for being private for so long. He doesn't even follow some interesting people or rumoured ex-boyfriends like Wenty Miller or TR Knight. He is so secretive, I really thought he was maybe already married and had a family he was secretly hiding somewhere.

I've wondered why the MAGA fraus who love Hallmark never complain about how most of the Hallmark productions are based in Canada. Hallmark did a film a couple of movies in Florida last year and the Florida film commission said they were going to try and lure Hallmark to film their non Christmas movies there.

Hilarie Burton did a few Hallmark movies. During one production she gave notes to the network to feature more gay characters, and interracial couples. Hallmark never hired her again. Burton has said she would do the same thing over again. I give her credit for doing that.

by Anonymousreply 5704/28/2020

An openly gay actor playing straight in Hallmark Channel movies does more for gay people than stunt casting or "reimagining" established characters as gay.

It certainly does more than DEMANDING that only gay actors play gay characters.

One of his Hallmark Christmas movies paired him with the odious Candace Cameron Bure. He was robbed of an Emmy.

by Anonymousreply 5904/28/2020

His trainer ain't cheap.

MANY writers, directors, and actors at Hallmark/Lifetime are openly gay. A job's a job. And a lot of writers and directors ping-pong between Hallmark and low-budget horror movies.

"An openly gay actor playing straight in Hallmark Channel movies does more for gay people than stunt casting or "reimagining" established characters as gay."

I doubt the usual Hallmark crowd (middle aged women) knows anything about him and that he's even openly gay. So far he was the bf on a popular show that aired over 10 years ago. Besides that he had a couple of guest roles, played a bounty hunter (or whatever that was) on a D-List Syfy show and starred in a bunch of Christmas movies. His career hasn't exactly been mind-blowing. He is more a phenomenon in the gay community. As long as he keeps a low profile, Hallmark cares more about the tax credit than supporting the gay community with this casting.

^His account is private again. Nothing to see there.

I read that all these productions in Canada have to hire the D-list Canadian actors to get tax breaks. Looks like the Canadian actor pool they can choose from is not very big so we see the same faces all the time.

From his IMDB page it looks like he hasn't worked in months and his last projects have only been Hallmark movies and that bad SyFy show that ended in 2018. Someone posted pics of his condo in L.A. (don't remember if he bought or sold it) and he lives/lived in a $700k 2br apartment in West Hollywood. I often wonder how he pays his mortgage and Hollywood Lifestyle including his personal trainer sessions with only one or two guest appearances a year and Hallmark movies.

I'm curious how much these dinky little TV movies pay their actors?

by Anonymousreply 7805/24/2020

[quote]Do they sit around giggling about the frau shit they're creating?

I'd say no. I'm an actor and think the vast majority of actors take their work seriously. Even if they acknowledge an iffy or mundane script they do try to raise the quality with a heartfelt performance, and hopefully tell a nice story.

I'm a gay actor and I was in a Hallmark movie a couple years ago as the lead's father. I'm a middle-aged guy, nobody cares, I'm sure. Our script was pretty lame, but our lovely director did a big rewrite (a polish technically), and tried to give us something on the page to play. I think it turned out nicely and I can't wait to do another.

Hallmark movies shoot very quickly. I assume most were like the one I did and shot 115 pages in 15 shooting days. That is television fast, so an actor like MacFarlane doesn't tie up too much time cranking out a holiday feature. It's not a terrible job, and actors want to work!

Luke is a husband and father material based on his ig. Look, he is making a crib and he don't know he whom he will gonna give it. Tho, is he planning to have a child? I don't mind if he goes to surrogacy since he is the only male child(IIRC) in his family.

His husband would be a lucky guy.
