It seems Charlie Carver can’t get enough of playing gay characters on screen. In Teen Wolf he was Ethan, who got involved in a relationship with the openly gay Danny, and now it seems he’ll be having an all-male threesome in Michael, the James Franco starring movie that tells the real-life story of Michael Glatze, who went from LGBT activist to ex-gay poster boy.
Deadline reports that Carver has joined the already filming movie as ‘Tyler, who gets involved in a relationship with Michael and Bennett (Zachary Quinto) and is heartbroken when Michael rejects his homosexuality’
As a young man, Glatze launched the magazine Young Gay America after working at XY, becoming a leading voice in the gay rights fight. However in 2004 he had a health scare involving a possible heart defect, which caused him to turn to conservative Christianity. Shortly afterwards he completely renounced everything he had previously stood for and said that he was now ‘ex-gay’. The 38-year-old is currently married to a woman.
Charlie Carver’s career until now has largely been in roles that call for twins, which saw him starring alongside his identical brother Max in the likes of Desperate Housewives, Teen Wolf and most recently the TV series The Leftovers, however it appears he’ll be getting a solo outing without Max in Michael.
