Playing Gay for Pay: Two Straight Male Actors Are Playing Gayface Again and Josh O’Connor Is One of Them

It’s never fails. As if it wasn’t bad enough that Josh O’Connor already played gayface in a movie called God’s Own Country,  he’s at it again with a new gay film titled, The History of Sound. And he’ll be starring with another non-gay actor who will be playing gayface. Yes, while millions of openly or closeted real gay actors struggle to find work in films and TV, these two privileged straights seemed to have found a good thing in life. Playing Gay for Pay.

O’Connor previously appeared as an English sheep farmer in the gay film “God’s Own Country,” directed by”Ammonite” director Francis Lee. He is a recent Golden Globe and Emmy winner and recently received a third BAFTA nomination for his role as Prince Charles in Netflix’s “The Crown.”

Here’s more.  It’s repulsive. And frankly, I can’t believe no one has told them. 

However, the interesting thing is that these projects never last. Films like Gods and Monsters are classic and we watch them over and over. But these quasi-gay fake movies just crash and burn.
