Danny Mahealani

Keahu Kahuanui as Danny Mahealani

Forgive me ahead of time if this sounds too much like a rant.  I have a lot to say about this matter.

On July 12th, while attending a U. K. based convention for Teen Wolf, Holland Roden (Lydia Martin) revealed that Keahu Kahuanui (Danny Mahealani) would not be a part of the show’s current season and quite possibly, any future season.  According to Roden, Jeff Davis, the creator of Teen Wolf, didn’t think Danny had any purpose in Beacon Hills.  Kahuanui himself responded on Twitter revealing only:  “So many questions.  So few I can answer.”

According to Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), everybody liked Danny.  Danny was Jackson’s (Colton Haynes) best friend.  He was a fellow lacrosse player.  He was Beacon Hill’s token gay character.  Unlike most dramas that deal with the coming out process, the focus was never on coming out.  He was out from the very beginning.  Everyone knew he was into dudes and no one gave a damn.  He seemed to be friends with everyone.

Danny was never a main character.  He was never an essential character, but overtime he was given more depth.  He brought his boyfriend to the formal in season 1.  He suffered a break up and rebound in season 2.  In season 3, he dated one of the Alpha twins, Ethan (Charlie Carver).  At the end of the season, viewers found out that Danny knew all along that Ethan was a werewolf.  “Dude, it’s Beacon Hills.” He knew all about the supernatural world that so many Beacon Hills was a part of.

With that simple line, one would have thought that Danny’s role would have been furthered on the show, if only to explain how he knew of the supernatural goings of Beacon Hills.  However, Danny will not appear in season 4.  In fact, it’s quite possible that we will never see Danny again.  It appears he has been completely written out of the Teen Wolf script. He’s not dead or alive.  He just never existed.

In response, I’ve penned a letter to Jeff Davis.

You’re the creator, writer and executive producer of “Teen Wolf.”  You’re the creative force behind “Teen Wolf.”  If you didn’t think Danny had a purpose in Beacon Hills, then you could have given him a purpose.  You could have “written” a purpose for him.  Heck, he could have been the Benefactor.  If he had no purpose, then why did you give him the line “Dude, it’s Beacon Hills” in the first place.  It made me think he was going to be more heavily involved in the upcoming seasons, not completely taken out.  You could have at least explained how he knew about all the supernatural goings in Beacon Hills.

You’ve known ever since Peter slashed Kate’s throat that you were going to bring her back.  You didn’t know what season it was going to be, but you knew you were going to bring her back.  That tells me that you at least know how a season is going to play out one season before.  In Kate’s case, three seasons before.  If you thought Danny had no purpose, then why didn’t you kill him off or send him away in season 3.  Instead, you have chosen to completely write him out as if he never existed.  That is a complete disrespect to the character and to the actor himself.

Maybe something happened behind the scenes that we don’t know about with the actor.  After all, he will be the sixth actor the leave the show since season 1.  It’s not out of the ordinary for actors to want to venture to new projects, but your retention rate for your show is pretty low and pretty strange.  Jackson (Colton Haynes) went to London.  Allison (Crystal Reed) and Aidan (Max Carver) were killed off (surprisingly).  Issac (Daniel Sharman) went to France.  Ethan (Charlie Carver) left Beacon Hills.  Who knows where?

At this point, it’s not even completely about Danny.  It seems to me that you have trouble tying up loose ends.  The loose ends being the fates of the characters that you created.   Peter is still alive, even though he was and probably still is a bad guy  Gerald is still alive somewhere.  Jackson is still alive, even though he will probably never return.  Jennifer would still be alive if Peter didn’t kill her.   Deucalion is still alive somewhere.  Ethan is still alive somewhere.  Aidan is dead, but only because the actor was leaving the show and it made since for his character to be killed.  The same goes for Allison.  Isaac is still alive, even though he probably won’t be returning.  You see a pattern?  You have trouble giving your characters any definitive ending.  You can’t determine their fates.

If you didn’t think Danny had a purpose, then why didn’t you either (1) kill him off, (2) send him away Beacon Hills (like Jackson and Isaac), or (3) have Ethan and Danny leave town together?  At least, Danny would of had some kind of ending.  Instead, you wrote him out as if he never existed.  And now we have a new gay guy, who seems pretty cool, but how do we know that you won’t write him completely out as well?

Danny been there since season 1, but now I guest he never existed.  What a way to end a character.  I hope you’re happy with yourself. You’re a great writer.  You just don’t how to end things well.  But then again, not everyone is perfect.  You may not lose major viewership over this, but if you keep doing this, you may.

Sincerely,

A peeved off fan

 

 

 

 

 

Guilty Pleasure: Matthew Lewis

Matthew Lewis (3)

Is it just me or did Matthew Lewis a. k. a Neville Longbottom become the hottest guy in the Harry Potter franchise?  I never paid much attention to Neville, but now I’m starting to notice.  You can have Daniel Radcliffe.  Or Rupert Grint.  Not Tom Felton, though.  I’ll take him, too.   But for right now, it’s all about Matthew David Lewis.

Matthew Lewis (10)

Born on June 27, 1968 in Horsforth, Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, Lewis has been acting since the tender age of 5.  He made his debut in the TV drama Some Kind of Life (1995).  He continued to make appearances in television on such shows as Dalziel and Pascoe (1996), City Central (1998) and Heartbeat (1990).

At age 11, he was cast as Neville Longbottom in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001), and the rest is history.  For the following ten years, he was seen as the round-face, goofy-but-smart, nerdy, short, plump, Gryffindor known as Neville Longbottom.  Who would have thought he would have turned out to be the hottest guy from the franchise?

Since the end of the Harry Potter era, Lewis has continued acting.  He has appeared in such shows as The Syndicate (2012) and Bluestone 42 (2013-2014).  He appeared in films including The Rise (2012) and The Sweet Shop (2013).  He is set to star in The Brontes (2016).

In addition to on-screen work, Lewis played Lester Cole in his stage debut in Agatha’s Christie’s Verdict (2011).  In 2012, he was confirmed to play in the West End stage new production of Our Boys.  Also, in 2012, he appeared in a music video called Filth by A Band of Buriers.

“The fame stuff, the kind words from websites and things, are very flattering and lovely, but I just wanna act.”

There weren’t many shirtless, nearly nude or nude photos of Mr. Lewis (darn it), but there was this video of him rubbing shirtless against another guy.

Teen Wolf Fandom

When I saw this, I knew I had to post it.  The only reason I watch Teen Wolf is because is combines two of my favorite interests:  Hot guys and the supernatural.  I doubt we’ll ever see this on MTV, but everyone does seem to come off as a little bisexual on the show, much like True Blood.  Maybe this will be someone’s dream on the show, much like Jason’s dream of Eric.  Any complaints?

More Men

Today’s post about the long-haired sexy man known as Tyler Blackburn has been my first post in a long time.  I’m not going to lie.  Part of the time has been spent relaxing, especially after having graduated college (in four years might I add).  The other part of the time was spent creating these two blogs seen below.  The links can be found in the caption.

If you enjoy the content on this site, then you’ll love these two sites.  They’re like this site, only with more pictures and fewer words.  Whereas on this site, there’s more in-depth content on some of my favorite men, on these sites, there’s just more to look at.  Some may even be featured on here.

I urge you to follow me on both sites.  They are updated daily.  That means more celebrities, more men and more gay content.  How can you not like that?

Guilty Pleasure: Tyler Blackburn

I usually don’t go for guys with long hair, but there’s an exception to every rule and, in this case, Tyler Blackburn is the exception.  Known to many fans as bad boy Caleb Rivers on Pretty Little Liars and the short-lived spin-off Ravenswood, Blackburn has been on television for the past ten years.

Born in Burbank, California, Blackburn is of English, Welsh,  Czech, Swedish and Cherokee descent.  He has three brothers and one sister.  At the age of 17, he got his start on the Nickelodeon show Unfabulous.  He continued to make television appearances, including Cold Case and Rockville CA.  He had his first major recurring role as Ian on Days of Our Lives. 

Recently, he starred in the web series, Wendy, in which he sang the theme song.  He recorded another song for the other ABC Family hit, The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

In 2011, he starred in the independent film, Peach Plum Pear, which debuted at the Female Eye Film festival in Toronto.  In 2012, he starred in the independent film, Hiding, alongside Jeremy Sumpter, Dean Armstrong and Dan Payne.  In 2013, he starred in Ravenswood, which only lasted one season.  In 2014, he was brought back to Pretty Little Liars on the series 100th episode.

Though we couldn’t get a full view, he’s got a cute little butt on him as well.
