by Anonymousreply 3209/23/2020

R30 Things are different this time. Brandon was an openly gay actor on a very popular show, Froy is closeted and he is not working.

Froy is way more comfortable and adaptable to what Richard wants on a relationship with a guy.

I doubt Richard will "date" a woman anytime soon, that will open the door for a lot of uncomfortable questions

by Anonymousreply 3309/24/2020

Richard is lucky to have Froy. Not many people would be comfortable with how he’s being treated. Richard has zero issue posing with friends on his ig but Froy is nowhere to be seen. Richard still hasn’t followed any of Froys friends or family. Froy has almost completely stopped posting on SM and recently liked a tweet saying that he would like to disappear completely. Doesn’t sound like normal feelings to be having when you’re in a happy relationship. The pap pics also looked bad, Richard walking with a mask on while Froy trailed behind him without a mask carrying a bin liner. Froy looked like his bitch boy and Richard looked like he was wearing his mask to disguise himself. I’m delighted Brandon is no longer with Richard. He’s out and happy.

by Anonymousreply 3409/24/2020

Do some of you realize that Froy has just come out on the world stage? Sure there's "deniability" (he has made no comment) but if you took a look at his IG comments when the first report came out, well, it's clear that he's now perceived as a gay man. As a teen pinup pursuing a career in Hollywood, this is likely a scary time for him. He has more eyes on him than he's ever had and they're not all adoring.

by Anonymousreply 3509/24/2020

Brandon seems a little off in those short vids he's been posting. And the way he was talking about Nurse Ratched as if she's a world renowned character. Even in 1976 she wasn't.

by Anonymousreply 4209/24/2020

R41 if they’re still together by November 2021 I would like to think Richard will have acknowledged Froy as his boyfriend. I can’t see Froy staying publicly closeted for that long. I think the boy is itching to come out. Richard will move on to the next closeted twink.

by Anonymousreply 4309/24/2020

But Froy was publicly closeted before banging Madden. Froy never claimed Hunter. Why do some of you like to ignore that fact?

by Anonymousreply 4409/24/2020

Froy claimed hunter by posting then together on his Instagram. He was never shy about posting Hunter. But now, Froy is MIA from all his SM accounts. It’s like he disappeared from everything.

by Anonymousreply 5009/24/2020

R50 he was there but that’s the sad thing about the situation, it he couldn’t post about it or be tagged. While Richard could show off on SM, Froy couldn’t show that he was with him. He only could post a picture of a rabbit and rooftops so it’s not like he wasn’t on ig.

by Anonymousreply 5109/24/2020

But Froy, like Richard, knows the power of a headline/story. Madden rationed his pap walks with Brandon such that they promoted his projects (e.g. the opening weekend of "Rocketman", the live onstage announcement of his casting in "Eternals"). Froy is not a novice. He knows about the publicity game too.

by Anonymousreply 5209/24/2020

R52 I don’t think Froy really thinks about headlines. When it comes to headlines and controlling the narrative that is Richards team. I doubt Froy has a PR team. Froy has never been any interest to tabloids.

by Anonymousreply 5309/24/2020

Froy has a management team. The idea that Froy has just been out here "living his life" is a false narrative. Take his music: If it's so personal, why did he not use male pronouns and why did he cast a female love interest in his "Crash" video? Froy has been playing the same game of omission as Richard has. They are birds of a feather.

After all, his character is supposed to be institutionalized.

by Anonymousreply 6109/24/2020

R60 That's not bad at all. That means work and that's exactly what he needs right now. A lot of actors fade away after being on a hit teen show, he needs to keep working and fortunately Murphy likes to work with the same actors again and again

R62 I agree. Steady work for an out gay actor is fantastic. I bet a lot of young actors would give their right arm to work with Murphy.

R77 The only thing that changed is that a coming out is not the end of the road for an actor, but it's pretty clear (at least on films, on tv and theatre it's way less problematic) that the tactics of the industry are exactly the same and bearding is clearly encouraged for young (and not so young) gay actors

by Anonymousreply 8009/28/2020

Augustus Prew's career was on the up and up. He got his own series on CBS, "Pure Genius" (co-starring DL fave Dermot Mulroney), while also booking the "Prison Break" reboot. He came out, even bringing his fiance (now husband) to the upfronts. Since coming out, he's only been able to book lead roles in gay indies. He's currently playing someone's gay assistant on that Reese Witherspoon / Jennifer Aniston show. Out actors are still sidelined.

by Anonymousreply 8109/28/2020

R81 Acting has it's ups and downs, there are a lot of straight actors who dissapear after being on a hit show.

And of course, there are plenty gay actors whose careers stayed the same after the coming out.

And it's not the same coming out now than it was coming out 10 years ago

And in his case, the pressures were before coming out, he lost the Superman role before coming out because they knew he was gay

He's not working the same. Jared Padelecki walks straight (no pun intended) from "Supernatural" to another basic show, "Walker Texas Ranger." Bomer hasn't had a similar fraubait vehicle since "White Collar." Where are Bomer's rom-coms? He's perfect for that kind of bland shit.

This is like those republican actos who claim that coming out as republican kept them out of work when they didn't work in years.

If you are someone they are considering for leading roles (specially in action movies or rom coms) coming out is going to affect your career (at least in the short time), but if you have a good reputation you career simply goes on as it was before

by Anonymousreply 9209/28/2020

Ben Platt?! Has Ben Platt even been in competition for roles? He's had work created FOR him since DEH - and on screen, that's been courtesy of Ryan Murphy. Platt is a terrible example.

by Anonymousreply 9309/28/2020

Anyway, this discussion happens everytime, and it has nothing to do with Brandon. If coming out will affect his career is to be seen. The truth is most actors on a teen hit show suffer after the role that makes them famous

R103 Richard career wouldn't tank but some of the roles he obviously wants they'll be for another actor (anyway, he is not going to get the Bond role no matter what).

On tv and of course theatre an actor can be openly gay and get lead roles, on films the story is very different. An openly gay actor can get good character roles but not a lead role on a big budget film.

Of course most actors, no matter if they are gay or straight are not lead man material on big budget films anyway

by Anonymousreply 10609/28/2020

R105 And that totally explains why he had nothing to lose coming out, because he was losing those roles anyway

by Anonymousreply 10709/28/2020

If you're losing roles because of behind the scenes chatter, you're hardly going to feel empowered to come out and add public chatter to "the noise." But you can't understand that because your work likely doesn't hinge on public opinion (and not just opinion of your ability but perception of your sexuality, fuckability etc.).

by Anonymousreply 10809/28/2020

R108 He’s in the wrong business if he’s paranoid of the gay chatter surrounding him. If he doesn’t want to be famous he could walk into a local theatre and act his little heart out there. If he doesn’t feel empowered to come out that’s his problem, not Hollywood because the tide is turning and there are gay actors working away.

The lead of Ratched wants scenes with Brandon. I guess he is confirmed for season 2.

by Anonymousreply 11409/28/2020

Whoever pointed out that it ends with Brandon’s character being institutionalized makes a lot of sense that it is a clue for his return meeting with Racheted in another like minded setting. That would also justify, both for Murphy and Brandon, the hire for what is otherwise a cameo part knowing that the second season was locked in and that his character would develop further in season two. It may also explain the monkey too, which to me was just an over the top throw away eccentric detail. Perhaps he somehow insists that despite the monkey getting the inheritance, he should still be the one to look after him and he becomes his service animal and evil accomplice since he has no hands.
