Colby Keller Explains His Role In Grindr’s Shakespeare-Inspired Film

by Jeremy Kinser March 25, 2016

 

I play each of those ‘Seven Ages,’ and there’s one other person who plays a soldier I carry off the battlefield — this beautiful man with a crazy body. But all the other stages of man are played by me. It was a lot of fun and I think it will be really beautiful. The project really was Landis Smithers’ creative idea and he has, from what I’ve seen, really nailed everything. It sort of looks like a classic ’80s perfume ad… Grindr has a big audience and they use it specifically for one thing, which is meeting other men for sex. There’s a lot of potential for them to provide a space for gay men to learn more about fashion, art and music. This project was a way for both of us to reach our respective audiences and do something fun together that will hopefully show the potential in this. If you have a big platform that’s reaching a lot of different people, it’s a great idea to think about ways to expand that reach and give people a more complex relationship with their community. I think they wanted to reach more into that space where sex and art have a relationship, and that’s an area I’m also interested in.”Colby Keller discussing his role in The Seven Ages of Man (directed by Grindr’s VP of Marketing) in an interview with Paper magazine
