Thursday Morning Man: Gerald McCullouch!
Today’s Morning Man is, quite simply, the sexiest man alive.
At least that was my feeling after discovering Gerald McCullouch in the terrific gay comedy BearCity which was a big hit at Outfest and has a special screening in Long Beach tonight.
Gerald plays the sexy and single Roger in BearCity who surprises himself and everyone else in his crowd when he falls in love with a young 20-something “twink” in this movie set in the gay “bear” scene in New York City.
I would have already been familiar with Gerald had I ever watched CSI: Crime Scene Investigation because he has the recurring role of Bobby Dawson on the long-running CBS show.
The actor has been doing guest spots and multi-episode arcs on various television series for 20 years now with credits that include the original Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place, In the Heat of the Night, NCIS, 7th Heaven, Chicago Hope and episodes of both Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
Gerald, who is 43 and openly gay (hooray!) was the writer-director-star of the award-winning short film The Moment After, also has many stage credits including playing Jesus in the European tour of Jesus Christ Superstar.
Last year, the actor was attacked in a subway while traveling in New York. A man tried to grab his laptop so Gerald, a trained boxer, flattened him. But then the man produced a knife. According to new reports, Gerald was able to hit him several more times and avoid injury.
