A couple of weeks ago we posted the first few episodes of a new time-traveling web series starring Matt Dallas, but it turns out that what’s been going on in the actor’s personal life is more exciting that what’s been happening on screen. He and his husband, musician Blue Hamilton, have announced via a Youtube video that they have adopted an adorable two-year-old little boy.
In the vid they reveal that, “We’d been talking about having kids for a long time. It was just a matter of when, timing-wise and how.”
Of course, there were numerous options they could have gone with, from surrogancy to Madonna style overseas adoption, but they decided that with far too few homes available for the children that need them in their own US state of California, they would adopt a child there. The little boy they were paired up with is called Crow, and it appears it was a case of love at first sight between the men and their new son.
Hamilton says, “We just happen to fall in love with this certain little boy who came to stay with us… the car ride home, we decided that he was gonna be ours and we weren’t gonna give him up.”
A very happy Dallas adds, “There was supposed to be a six month trial period, and there was about a six-minute trial period before we knew he was gonna be ours.”
You can take a look at their very sweet and festive announcement video below. And good luck to all three of them. [Read more…]
It turns out Kyle XY star Matt Dallas does have a belly button, and if you’d like some proof, check out the first episode of the new web series Anne & Jake, which sees Matt wearing only his undies for the entire running time. There seems to be no reason he isn’t forgotten to put any clothes on, other than that it’s a very nice sight to behold.
We’re just glad Matt’s not insisting the only person who should see him in such states of near nakedness is his hubby, Blue Valentine.
The show brings together sci-fi and period drama, with Matt as a barely-clothed genius who’s on the verge of figuring out time travel. However that’s not good enough for his girlfriend, who’s unimpressed with his antics. Meanwhile in Jane Austen times, Anne (Victoria Bullock) is a headstrong young woman who doesn’t want to marry any of the dull bunch of suitors her family have lined up for her. By the end of the first episode these two very different worlds have collided and Anne and Jake find themself brought together.
Bullock says of the show, “I hope people take away from the series that it’s okay if you don’t fit in and everyone finds a place. The crux of the story is about ‘belonging,’ for both of them.”
Dallas adds, “Anybody who has ever felt like they wanted something different than what was expected of them is really going to love this show.”
Four episodes have been released so far. Unfortunately Matt Dallas does put on some clothes in later episodes, but they’re still fun to watch. Enjoy. (And thanks to Towleroad for the tip)
Ever since Kyle XY, there have been plenty of people all around the world swooning over the handsomeness that is Matt Dallas. However we’re got bad news for all those folks, as he’s off the market.
Matt has revealed on Instagram that he has married his fiance, LA musician Blue Hamilton.
The two have been engaged since Christmas 2012 (it was while mentioning his new fiance on Instagram in January 2013 that Matt casually came out publicly), but it seems they’ve now officially tied the knot, with Matt posting a pic of him and Blue outside the courthouse apparently holding their marriage license, along with the message, ‘Introducing Mr. & Mr. Dallas‘. Blue meanwhile posted the same pic except his message was, ‘Introducing Mr. & Mr. Hamilton‘.
Hopefully that’s not a sign that they already arguing over what surnames they should use (only joking).
They certainly make a cute couple and we wish them huge amounts of luck!
Actor Matt Dallas may have come out of the closet, but that doesn’t mean he’s now only interested in stereotypically gay role. Nope, there are no hairdressers or florists in his near future. Instead he’s teamed up with his friends, Charlie Bewley and Steven Grayhm, to come up with the script for Thunder Road, which looks at life after war.
Now they’ve launched a KickStarter, hoping to raise a gargantuan $750,000 to get the movie made.
The film follows, ‘the story of returning U.S. soldier SGT. CALVIN COLE (played by Steven) whom we meet in present day Detroit as a troubled veteran who suffers from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) from multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Initially resistant to the VA system COLE must find a way to assimilate back into civilian life before he ends up dead or in prison.
‘Through his rekindled friendship with his estranged childhood friend PFC. DARRYL SPARKS (played by Matt) who he served on the “buddy system” with and his newly formed relationship with a doctor at the VA Medical Center, COLE finds redemption and salvation through sharing his captivating experience as a combat infantryman. The film also explores the psychological repercussions of war and seeks answers to the growing epidemic of PTSD and tbi in returning soldiers.
‘Thunder Road also shows the allied forces involvement in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom as we intertwine COLE’s story with CPT. CHARLES RHODES (played by Charlie), a Sandhurst educated Captain of the British Army who we learn has crossed paths with COLE and SPARKS during their service in the middle east.’
Steven first began writing the script back in 2003, but it’s only after he starred alongside Dallas on Wyatt Earp’s Revenge that they all started working together to make it a reality.
Just before Christmas, actor Matt Dallas had a low-key coming out, tweeting that he had a new fiancé, LA musician Blue Hamilton. Recently he headed to the set of the upcoming ABC Family show, Baby Daddy, for a guest slot that will reunite him with Kyle XY co-star Jean-Luc Bilodeau.
And to remind us even more of Kyle XY, they took some shots showing off their belly buttons – but unlike on the earlier show, Dallas actually has one this time.
Dallas also recently spoke to E! Online about his upcoming wedding, saying, “We talked about it a lot and we’ve been doing lots of planning, but there’s no official date set yet.”
He says they’ll probably go outside LA for the nuptials, but there’s no intention to get too anally retentive about perfection. “We’re both like the most easy going [guys],” he said, “For us, it’s more about just having a celebration and throwing a party. Yeah, so no stressing out and getting crazy about wedding plans. You’re supposed to enjoy it. It’s supposed to be fun.”
Take a look at a pic of Dallas and Bilodeau above, and with the rest of the Baby Daddy cast below. And with that impressive v-shape he’s showing off, Matt’s certainly been working out.
The stars were out in force on Saturday night for the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles, where Bill Clinton was handed the ‘Advocate for Change Award’ by Harvey Weinstein and Jennifer Lawrence, while Leo DiCaprio and Charlize Theron gave entertainment lawyer Steve Warner the ‘Stephen F. Kolzak Award’ for his work for gay causes.
‘Outstanding Film – Wide Release’ went to The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, while The New Normal got ‘Outstanding Comedy Series’ and American Horror Story: Asylum won ‘Outstanding TV Movie or Mini-Series’.
Guests at the shindig included Darren Criss, Kelly Rowland, Andrew Rannells, Justin Bartha, Chaz Bono, Wilson Cruz, Logan Lerman, Ellen Pompeo, Eric Dane, Beth Ditto, Trevor Donovan, Kirsten Dunst, Chris Evans and his gay brother Scott Evans, Elle Fanning, Joshua Jackson, Tobey Maguire, Alex Pettyfer, Teri Polo, Molly Shannon, Matt Dallas and Betty White. You can take a look at a few of those guests below.
However there has been a bit of controversy, as Bret Easton Ellis has said that he was banned from the event. He was due to attend as the guest of one of those invited, but Ellis tweeted that, “As a gay man in a domestic partnership who plans to get married I’m sad to hear I’ve been banned by Glaad from attending tomorrow’s event… Glaad is supposedly ‘furious’ about my tweets. And I’m guessing not the ones concerning my boyfriend or how sexy I think Adam Driver is.”
GLAAD has responded, with the organisation’s vice president of communications Rich Ferraro telling the Hollywood Reporter, “GLAAD spoke with the guest who was planning to bring Bret about some of Bret’s recent remarks, which the gay community responded negatively to. We also asked for a time to sit down with Bret. They decided to replace Bret with a different guest and there has been no response to the offer of a meeting.”
Ellis has slip opinion with tweets such as comparing watching Glee to “stepping into a puddle of HIV”, and also provoked fury among some for saying that Matt Bomer is ‘too gay’ to play Christian Grey in the film version of 50 Shades Of Grey. It’s not only the LGBT community he’s managed to piss off, as recently he apologised for saying Kathryn Bigelow only won the Best Director Oscar for The Hurt Locker because she’s a ‘hot woman’.
Ellis seems resolutely unimpressed by GLAAD though, making the perhaps salient point, “Bill Clinton signed Doma [Defense of Marriage Act] and Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and cheated on Hillary… I dissed Glee and Matt Bomer as Christian Grey. GLAAD: RIGHT ON!”

It appears that Matt Dallas, star of Xyle XY and Eastwick has quietly come out on Twitter, and announced his engagement to LA musician Blue Hamilton at the same time. Matt tweeted:
— matt dallas (@themattdallas) January 7, 2013
While with some people we’d be wondering if this really was a coming out, rumours have suggested Dallas was gay for several years, to the point where many have considered it an open secret (Perez Hilton, for example, spent a long time hassling him about it and even nicknamed him Kyle KY on his blog). It’s just that now 30-year-old Dallas seems to have made it official.
The only thing that gives us pause is that the ‘bluehamilton’ Twitter account doesn’t seem to exist, although the musician is real and has previously been described and Matt’s best friend.
Take a look below for a pic at Matt Dallas and Blue Hamilton together.
So congrats to Matt, you’ve just made the gayborhood a lot prettier.
