Disney Channel Star Garrett Clayton Describes Being Manhandled By Eight Guys As Brent Corrigan

by Dan Tracer April 21, 2016


There was a time when playing gay in Hollywood was career suicide. Boy, how that has changed.

Now, playing a gay porn star isn’t even seen as very shocking. Just ask former Disney Channel star Garrett Clayton.

The Teen Beach Movie actor plays Sean Lockhart, aka Brent Corrigan, in the highly anticipated new film King Cobra.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Clayton discusses some of the more, erm, challenging parts of the role.

Actually, he almost didn’t take the part to begin with.

“Honestly, when I first read the script for this movie I thought, you know, like, ‘I’m not doing this,'” he revealed.

But writer/direct Justin Kelly convinced him that the project was worthwhile, and from what we’ve heard — he was onto something.

Then again, that didn’t mean the shoot was a breeze.

When you’re playing a porn star, it’s understandable things are going to get physical on set.

“The day I found very challenging was — there’s a montage in the movie where Sean/Brent is becoming from a porn actor to a porn star, and I got to work one day and there was eight men sitting outside of set and they’re like ‘alright these are the people that will be in the montage with you,” Clayton recalled.

“That was a very difficult day, to be almost a little bit more manhandled by a bunch of strangers. Being touched by one stranger alone is a lot, let alone eight, and you’re like, pulling your clothes off, and you have to sell it. It was at the end of that day that I remember calling my mom and I was like, ‘I don’t know if I can do this.'”

Watch the interview, which also features Kelly in an enviable sparkle-jacket talking about James Franco in a cock-sock, below:

This sort of thing was supposed to have ended when marriage equality was legalized, but apparently it’s a reality that queer couples must still face: when a partner dies, evil family members swooping in to seize the couple’s possessions with no regard for their decades-long relationship. It used to be far more common. Without legal marriage equality, most LGBT couples had [...]
