Hey Mikey,

I’ve followed your site for some time now and I really like how you keep up with all of the gay web series. I am actually on one of them, although you have yet to interview me. Anyhow, I’m having an issue with getting more acting jobs in this city. Despite the number of followers I have and the web series I have been on people continue to act like they don’t know who I am. It really is mind-boggling to me especially when I can walk into practically any bar or club in Atlanta and dozens of niggas know who I am. I feel as though I’m being blackballed. I’m really trying to do this acting thing, and I feel like these casting people need to see my worth. What do you think?

***About Tre, honestly I think you are coming off as spoiled and entitled–a recurring theme among many web stars. You my boy are what I  have coined as “Gay Famous.” This pretty much means you may be famous with in the gay community, the Black Gay one at that, and that is the extent of your popularity and reach. For you to begin achieving the fame I know you ultimately desire you are going to have to do some real work. That means getting head shots, taking some acting classes, networking, accepting minor roles to get your foot in the door for bigger roles, and most of all put your ego to the side. The sky is the limit when you’re young, attractive, and bangin’ it seems, but gravity all that much stronger. The Clipse said it best, “don’t let’cha ego trick yo ass!”

Writer, Actor, & Absolutely Amazing! We’ve Got Nothing But LOVE For Alex Jante!

alex jante

It is no secret that we at HeyMikeyATL love our web series, and more importantly web stars! The flare, performances, and risque world these budding actors have introduced us to is nothing short of addictive. By now, you might feel as if you know all there is to know about web stars. Perhaps you think there’s a simple formula to them– face, body, sex scenes, rinse and repeat–but you would be wrong. Especially when it comes Alex Jante, a true gem.

Alex  Jante is not your average guy, let alone web star.

This amazing young man is also an actor, writer, author and one of the stars of Signal 23 TV’s hit web series, Steel River: When We Were Young!

As you may already know, Steel River: When We Were Young is a prequel to Signal 23 TV’s flagship series, Steel River. Alex portrays “Will” a straight laced young man on the cusp of adulthood, who dreams of having a better life. Will also struggles with his sexuality, not knowing where his feelings end or begin when it comes to his best friend, Addison(Travis Demetri). “Will is a very passionate and loyal person in my opinion and perspective…he is a person who is really engaged in his friendship with Addison…he is cool and he knows about the other characters, but his loyalty really lies with Addison.” Interestingly, unlike most of the characters in the series, Will seems to be almost repulsed by his same sex attractions as evidenced by his face in key scenes. “So Will is the character that is very much like I said loyal to Addison up to the point that I believe he realizes Addison is struggling with his sexuality and because of who he is he wants his friend to be comfortable around him…so in that he becomes a little bit more affectionate and endearing and find himself in the head space of knowing he has love for Addison, but struggling with wondering is he in love with him just to be comfortable…I feel like Will is the type of person where if you were to be gay he is the person you would actually want to be with. For him it’s not necessarily the idea of a gay or straight struggle, just a relationship with Addison…”

Artist, Web Star, & Great Guy…Rest In Peace Del Antonio (@MrDelAntionio)

del antonio

Goodbye is never, and farewell is always bittersweet, especially when death is involved. It seems the good and talented die so so young and all too often too soon in this world.

We are deeply saddened to learn that one of those young souls is none other than Del Antonio, a noted painter, singer, web star, and reality television star.

On Sunday, February 12th, Del Antonio transitioned from this world to the next after a heart attack, leaving his family, friends, loved ones, and fans stunned.

As you may already know Del Antonio  was one of the stars of Signal 23 TV’s hit reality series, The Boyz Next Door ATL. Attractive and equally talented, he was loved for his strong, but kind personality and was well respected throughout the LGBT community in Atlanta and beyond. His death has personally affected us here at HeyMikeyATL, as in just a week were to interview him and discuss his new music and artwork. Although we personally, did not get to interact with Del Antonio in  a meaningful way like others in his life. This missed opportunity is nonetheless disheartening and painful.

Signing Off? Rico Pruitt & Signal 23 TV Part Ways!

It has definitely been a wild ride these last few months with the cast (s) of About Him! Last summer this talented group of young men took the nation by storm with a story that brought to the forefront the pain and pleasure of young Black gay men coming of age. As you already know, one of them was Rico Pruitt, who starred as “Justin,” on the hit web series, and later in About Justin. We were already enamored with Brandon Karson and Gary Lavard on screen, but adding Rico into the mix was liking adding a little extra spice to make the show “extra nice!”

About justin signal 23 tv

However, all things come to an end eventually; and from the looks of it Rico has decided to end his relationship with Signal 23 TV! The popular web star took to Facebook and Instagram announcing not only his departure from About Justin, but the company as well. Check out his post below:

 Signal 23 TV declined to comment. We are surprised to see Rico and Signal 23 TV are parting ways, but this is not unheard of. As you recall other original About Him stars, Brandon Karson (Damien) and Rahim Brazil (Kendall) parted ways with the company in December of last year. Rico is a good friend to our site and we definitely wish all parties involved the best of luck in their future endeavors.

You can catch an in depth interview with Rico Pruitt and his new project soon on HeyMikeyATL EXCLUSIVELY!

[AUDIO] New Music Alert! “Ready For War (Slay)”-Rahim Brazil (@rahimbrazil)

rahim brazil

Rahim Brazil is the man, and if you don’t know it you better ask somebody! This singer, songwriter, rapper, actor, dancer, radio host, model, and all around awesome guy is the epitome of what it means to grind so hard for your dreams that people cannot help but notice you. Naturally, when we found out he was dropping a new single we had to share it with all of you. After all quality music is so hard to come by nowadays.  Listen to his single, Ready For War (Slay), below!

We love this song! It is a war cry all it’s own. Hopefully a music video will accompany it where we see Mr. Brazil geared up in all black and dancing, “fighting the power” (LOL)

Rahim clearly came to take his haters down! In recent months the About Him star has subtly discussed a number of people trying to discredit him, not being supportive, or trying to use him. Although we can look at him and surmise their tempation, this is never cool! Interestingly last week Signal 23 TV released a teaser trailer for their second season of About Him,  About Him Revolution. It too had a war theme, which you can view here. Rahim has not made a direct reference towards his former network or compatriots, but did tell us to “Tell’em thanks for the inspiration!!!”

As you can see it really is “About Him.” What do you guys think of Rahim (the dreamy) Brazil’s new single? Sound off in our comments section below.

In Need of “Entercourse?” Get To Know Web Star, Jerome Parker (@jeromebparker)!

Web stars may be the epitome of overnight celebrities nowadays, but that does not mean they are all worth writing about. In fact many of them could use a few acting classes or just some talent in general! Thankfully, Tyson Anthony does not fail to deliver just what we need in quality actors, especially on LGBT web series.

Meet Jerome Parker–a model, handsome, sexy, talented, an overall sweetheart, AND the star of the new hit web seriesEntercourse!

Hailing from New York City, Jerome is a good ol’ Brooklyn boy with dreams to become one of the biggest stars in the world. We were first introduced to him in Pharm The Series, where he played “Reek,” a loyal, “ride or die” boyfriend willing to help his troubled man no matter what. Unlike most web stars, Jerome became one unwittingly, not being particular fond of web series. “I started off hating web series, like for real. I started off watching ‘About Him’ and it was cool, but I was like I’m not watching that I’ll watch TV. I couldn’t watch anything on YouTube for that long. One day I sat down and I was like lemme watch it [About Him]…and I watched it and it was so addictive! Prior to that Tyson [Anthony, the creator of About Him, Pharm The Series, and Entercourse] had DM’ed me and wanted me to be on the show and I ignored him completely [he laughed]…I was like what are you talking about? I ended up moving down here [from New York City to Greensboro, North Carolina] and got a job working at a restaurant. I ended up getting laid off and that’s why Tyson inboxed me again and was like ‘Hey, this is your last chance I really would like for you to be a part of this;’ and I said you know what I’m going to take him up on this opportunity. I was still nervous, feeling like I’m not really an actor, but when I got around my cast it all happened so naturally, and here I am…”

On Entercourse Jerome portrays “Miles,” also a loyal boyfriend to Rocky (Elijah Black), who is addicted to porn. Although the couple greatly love each other, the latter’s porn addiction causes their sex life to become lackluster and Miles’ eye to wander towards his curious co-worker, Drew (David Hall). Like his characters, Jerome admits he too is a loyal boyfriend when in a relationship. “We’re [He, Reek, and Miles] are very much alike [he laughs]. I’m a Virgo and we are romantic and we’re just all about our boyfriends when we have one. When I started doing the shows Tyson [the creator of Pharm and Entercourse] asked how am I with my boyfriends; and I was like i’m like the ‘lovey dovey’ type…it’s just BAE, BAE, BAE, BAE [he laughs]…it’s just how I am and it shows…It’s very natural.” Jerome also reveals that initially the sex scenes on the show were a bit too much for him. “Some scenes from the shows required nudity and I was like I’m not comfortable with that. Tyson was cool though and told me he did not want me to do anything I was uncomfortable with. So in Pharm I kept some black underwear on, but in Entercourse there’s no way we could have made that scene believable so I stripped down. It was very tasteful I feel like…”
