Noah Galvin's Impolitic Interview Could Get THE REAL O'NEALS Axed—But Should It? Comments (0)

When Noah Galvin opened his mouth to Vulture in a Q&A posted this past week, the main problem was he simply never shut it, riffing on his beliefs regarding the proper way to come out (Colton Haynes didn't pass muster), the right way to play a gay character on TV (Eric Stonestreet flunked) and even how not to use one's power in Hollywood (a remark about Bryan Singer and “little boys” was removed from the piece after his lawyers caught wind of it). 

While some of what Galvin said had merit, the overall tone of his remarks reeked of a regrettable smugness and a youthful disregard for how his words might affect other people—including his own co-stars.

To his credit—and no thanks to the decent number of gay fans who unhelpfully cheered him on, Galvin apologized: 

Now comes word that Galvin's show The Real O'Neals (a labor of love for many, including activist Dan Savage)—which is low-rated and was barely renewed—may be canceled after all. If it seems harsh to punish a whole show (and its many fans) thanks to the poorly considered comments of its star, THR reports that this interview shocked the network (it was reportedly set up by Galvin's publicist without their knowledge) but that he had previously been taken to the woodshed for issues of “ego and entitlement.”

Or they just want to reconsider saving a struggling show.

Via THR:

Galvin quickly apologized for his "brazen and hurtful comments" on Twitter, but how all of this bad press affects the low-rated bubble series—which, after an "abusive" waiting period (Galvin's word), was renewed by the network May 12—remains to be seen. As the controversy raged, the specter of a reduced episode order arose at ABC, according to one source. An executive producer who had spent four years getting the series on the air was "begging the network not to take action," says this source. (Reps for ABC declined comment on the situation.)

It's a terribly hard lesson for a 22-year-old neophyte actor to learn; I'm sure he's mortified, especially that he may be costing the show's creatives and crew their jobs.

One unfortunate note I can add to this story: 

Galvin graciously appeared at TrevorLIVE NY on June 13. A friend of mine assisted him that evening, and while I'm sure everything was dreary for the guy considering the Vulture piece had just hit days before, his publicist wasn't winning him any new friends—she flatly refused to let my friend get a picture with Noah (all the attendees happily pose for pictures with their helpers) and I'm told she also refused to let Galvin pose with the person to whom he handed an award. Really? That's the point of using stars at charity events. Also, she told Galvin he wasn't allowed to drink.

I'm sure that a lot of the issues he's had are of his own making—and I hope he will figure things out, because people do deserve second chances—but when THR is calling out your publicist by name, as it did, and when your publicist is alienating admirers at charity events, it's probably time to get a new one.

The Real Noah Galvin Comments (0)

I'm not gonna slam The Real O'Neals star Noah Galvin for his at-times unfortunate, at-times excitingly candid interview with Vulture, in which I think he sounds too sure of himself by a factor of four, but I do think some of what he says is a bit misguided.

First off, I like that he's honest and has positions. He admires Dan Savage and I think that Savage's outspokenness is rubbing off:

I love him a lot. He's the smartest gay man you'll ever meet in your life. He's the most articulate. The thing about Dan is he is primed for combat at all times. Like, ready to throw down. And not only ready to throw down, but ready to win whatever debate. And he will.

He's also to be admired for being a 22-year-old who is out and proud, and who recognizes the impact of being out:

Colton Haynes Officially Comes Out, Discusses Struggles With Anxiety Comments (0)

Colton Haynes, an actor who many assume came out when he replied to a Tumblr post, has officially come out as gay in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

Haynes now says he was taken aback by the media attention to that Tumblr post:

“It was a complete shock. I wasn’t ready to be back in the headlines,” says Haynes, who is in fact gay but has never publicly addressed his sexuality (and, like many others on his path, took advice early in his career to subdue it). “I should have made a comment or a statement, but I just wasn’t ready. I didn’t feel like I owed anyone anything. I think in due time, everyone has to make those decisions when they’re ready, and I wasn’t yet. But I felt like I was letting people down by not coming forward with the rest of what I should have said.”

Haynes has a very good response for anyone who thinks the ready in their own time excuse regarding closeted stars is bunk:

“I’ve had terminal anxiety my entire life. Physically ill, fainting. I’m 27 years old, and I have an ulcer. I had to step back.”

I appreciate that the article explicitly acknowledges Hollywood's homophobia and the fact that Haynes took advice to go into the closet following the appearance of his racy XY photos. I'm very understanding of his emotional issues and period of adjustment, but it does send a chilling message to others when a closeted gay star (whose motivations and limitations may not be transparent) has lawyers sending cease-and-desist orders to gay bloggers threatening legal action for posting images that seemed joyful and gay-positive.

But that is in the past, as is any mystery regarding his sexual orientation. I hate when gay people come out after a period of closet-shaming and the response is, Duh, everybody knows that, or worse, Ugh, he took too long, who cares?

I think it is the very least we can do to welcome public figures out when they take the plunge. It still matters in the grand scheme of things, and in Colton's case, it clearly matters a lot to him.
