TONIGHT: Watch “Rentboy.com” on HBO’s New Gay Series LOOKING, featuring TJ Linnard as escort “CJ”

image

Looking,” the new HBO series from collaborators Michael Lannan and Andrew Haigh that premiered this month, has plenty of sex to keep everyone tuning in each week. It even has a male escort character and  ”rentboy.com" subplot that begins in Episode 3 and continues on Feb 9th with Episode 4: Looking for $220 an hour. The actor TJ Linnard plays CJ, an escort with an ad on rentboy.com who becomes involved with the main character Agustin. Episode 4 was partly shot in the rentboy.com booth at the Folsom street festival with real-life rentboys Austin Wolf and Tyler Wolf. Check out the photos below. 

The writer/director of Looking, Andrew Haigh, has a long-time interest in rentboys… His first feature film was Greek Pete, A Year in the Life of a Rentboy (2009) about the rentboy London Boy Pete, winner of The International Escort Awards back in 2008.

Check out the Looking  rentboy episode synopses below:

Looking season 1, episode 3 “Looking at Your Browser History” airing Saturday, February 1 AND Sunday, February 2: “Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez) is fired by Stina (Ann Magnuson) after opining that her chair sculpture is lame, but his outlook on art and life gets a lift when he meets CJ (TJ Linnard), a sex worker.”

image

Looking season 1, episode 4 “Looking for $220/Hour” airing Sunday, February 9: “Taking a break from working in the office on a Sunday, Patrick and Kevin connect while chatting about relationships, but are interrupted by a call from Kevin’s boyfriend. Later, Agustín, Doris and Dom’s coworker Hugo (Ptolemy Slocum) take in the leather-filled sights of the Folsom Street Fair, and convince Patrick to join them. Dom asks Lynn (Scott Bakula) to lunch, but it’s not clear whether it’s for a date or to talk business. Agustín finds CJ at the Fair’s rentboy.com booth and considers “hiring” him for an art project.”

Interview with DAVID LEDDICK, Creator of RENTBOY THE MUSICAL

image

We Interviewed David Leddick, creator of RENTBOY THE MUSICAL, opening in New York City, March 21st - 31st, see rentboythemusical.com. The cast will also appear at The Hookies Awards March 22nd, see www.thehookies.com

Q & A with David Leddick
How many shows have you written and produced so far, is this your fourth or fifth? 

Rent Boy The Musical
is the fifth show I’ve written…the others are: 
 Gilda LillyQuentin and IThe Secrets of the Chorus, and How to Be Gay.  And more are on the way as my manager really wants to musicalize “My Worst Date” which is my first novel. That is a great story about a young man’s beau who is accidentally also dating his own Mother simultaneously. Full of plot twists…it may be the first bi-sexual musical ever produced!

Is this the first musical you have put on in New York City?

We have taken the one person shows Gilda and Quentin to NYC; however this is our first attempt at a big time show with chorus boys…it’s quite exciting and terrifying at the same time. We are rehearsing only for something like 10 days and then, WHAM! the show opens!
 
Your career in show business began as a dancer in NYC Metropolitan Opera Company way back when…so how has gay life in New York City changed since then, for better or worse?

It’s so hard  to answer this question as it’s hard to tell gay life from real life in NYC.  It’s really just different and not necessarily better or worse. 
 
Is Grindr an improvement on the tearoom?

How would I know? Tearoom, really? As for Grindr they have been so supportive of our show, so I must say then that Grindr is certainly a great way to meet a date or whatever!

image
How did you research the material for Rentboy the Musical?

I spent an entire summer calling ads in magazines and on-line, and then having lunch with “real” rentboys.  It was a madding experience, since if I had a lunch date with an escort and then he got a booking for work—guess who got canceled!  The one thing I learned and I think you will see this in our show, is that the rentboys are really just like you and me. They go to work, they go to the grocery store, they need to do their laundry. They also want to love and be loved. 
  
What should people expect to see in Rentboy the Musical? Singing, plot, emotion, fantasy, dancing—what are the show’s best assets?

We have tried our best to re-create “The Hookies Awards" show….so there are, first of all, alot of good looking men on stage. It’s really an old-fashioned musical with a 21st century plot twist.

When writing Rentboy the Musical with composer Andrew Sargent, which came first, the songs or the story (book and lyrics)?
 

Andrew and I have no set pattern. Sometimes I give him the lyrics and then he comes up with the tune. Other times Andrew, who is just so creative, comes up withe the tune and a suggested title of the song…and then the two of us work out the lyrics.  
 
Which song is the best in the show, the one that people will come away singing?

So many of the tunes have a catchy melody, I really cant say here…but for me the love song duet “All My Dreams in a Row” is really something special. When we did the first developmental run of this show in Fort Lauderdale, the show did not have a love song. When that 1st show was over, so many people came to me, Andrew, and Vincent Colonna, the show’s producer, insisting there be a big love song!  Vincent and Andrew, who live on Miami Beach, were off to the diner one weekend for an early breakfeast. Let me tell you that creativity comes at weird times…so on their way to ordering pancakes, the love song poped up in Andrew’s head. He ate his pancakes and then went home and wrote the love song “All My Dreams in a Row” in about 10 minutes!
 
Is the cast of Rentboy The Musical made up entirely of trained actors and singers, no pornstars or current rentboys?

I really can’t say for sure—we never asked any of them officially.  I will say that they are all great singers and hot looking men, so I see no reason why they could not work in both professions, if they wanted to.
 
What is the average age of the cast?

For those of you who took statistics, the mode is 24. With me in the cast too, my age would throw off the average. So lets just leave it at that, ok?
 
Did any of the cast have qualms about playing rentboys?

Not at all…when each actor was offered the job, we specially asked if they understood the nature of the show and what we were asking them to do. No one blinked an eye! They have all seen “Pretty Women” with Julia Roberts, so they got the message very quickly.
 
How much flesh can we expect to see in Rentboy the Musical?

You’ll have to buy a ticket and see for yourself!
 
Rentboy the Musical at Richmond Shepard Theater, 309 E 26th St (@ Second Ave), Mar 21–31, Thus, Fris at 8pm, Sats at 2pm and 8pm, and Suns at 2pm; $35 general admission/$75 VIP. Visit rentboythemusical.com for more info.
