[UPDATED] Kellan Hartmann Announces Name Change To “Callum Huntsman,” Departure From GayHoopla, And New Role At Helix Studios

Posted November 14, 2018 by with 129 comments

Screen Shot 2018-11-11 at 7.41.33 PMThis story has been updated below.

After the abrupt resignation of GayHoopla’s “production firm”—which was actually just one man (a well-known photographer and videographer with years of experience in the gay adult industry), and Str8UpGayPorn recently chatted with him, but I’ll have more on that in the coming days—last month, there’s another high profile departure from the studio today: Horse-hung hottie Kellan Hartmann has just announced that he too is no longer working with GayHoopla, and he has changed his name to “Callum Huntsman”:

After only doing solo scenes for the last few years, Kellan/Callum made his hardcore gay sex debut recently, and while it was nice to see him fucking, the scene itself was underwhelming and plagued with technical problems. There has apparently been behind-the-scenes drama at GayHoopla, but all of that GayHoopla tea is supposed to be spilled shortly, after November 15th.

Until then, where would you like to see Callum fucking next? GuysInSweatpants would obviously be my first choice, but feel free to leave your suggestions below.

[GayHoopla: Kellan Hartmann]

UPDATE:

Callum has just released another video, this time announcing that he’ll be working with Ryan Gordon (the formerly anonymous gay man who had been hired to produce GayHoopla’s videos, before abruptly resigning) on producing new videos for Helix Studios and 13 Red Media (Helix’s parent company):

AND:

Here’s the press release from 13 Red Media/Helix announcing Ryan Gordon’s new position with the studio as a producer:

It is with pride and excitement that 13 Red Media announces the hiring of Ryan Gordon.  Mr. Gordon brings with him twenty-one years of experience in video and photo production. His work has been sought after both in and out of the adult industry, earning acclaim from consumers and critics.

Though the nature of the upcoming project has yet to be disclosed, 13 Red Media’s owner, Mr. Keith Miller, says: “I am very eager to work with Ryan as he expands our roster of producers. Not only is Ryan experienced and talented, he’s a creative force and a forward thinker. We’re thrilled to welcome him to the team.”

It is the familial atmosphere of 13 Red Media’s subsidiaries, Helix Studios and 8teenBoy, that drew Mr. Gordon to the company. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with 13 Red Media while exploring an unpaved territory of the adult film industry. The autonomy Keith offers has empowered and invigorated my production assistant and me. We can’t wait to share the beautiful outcome.”

Ryan Gordon worked as a producer, director, and videographer at several studios (including GayHoopla, obviously), and he’ll be directing/producing new content for 13 Red Media’s studios. His production assistant is Callum Huntsman, and I pray to God that, in addition to assisting with productions, Callum will also be starring in Helix scenes and fucking some of the studio’s best powerbottoms (starting with Tyler Hill, please).

    Oh sweetheart, Just do straight porn, I promise you’ll have more fun.

    Its like were all in the same camp of losing our minds over some okay looking white kid over the course of years and then being let down by his performance and then “hoping” he fucks better.

    I think I can say with certainty that gay porn is just straight men now and all the queers have run to onlyfans. I havent seen LaRue or Mr Pam hunting talent down at q bar or Beauxs in the castro like they used to. The queer youth arent looking at studios no ‘mo. Next thing you know Chi Chi will have an only fans account to supplement her income!

    Community college is free, Kellan,Callum, Mcdaniel, Shanteesha, or whatever she calls herself tomorrow.

    • wdeee

      Problem is most of these G4P guys aren’t big enough downstairs, feed their egos off of the gay admiration, and have girlfriends and wives that only will allow them to fuck guys.

      • sanfv

        Most have substance abuse. It’s not ego inflation, its funding the next hit of whatever. Look at how many of them died the past decade, shit, the last two years.

        • wdeee

          That is also another factor. Chris Bine (he’s bi) was Hollywood gorgeous but got 5 years because of weed. It’s sad. The str8 side of the industry has done so much more to combat things like this and the gay side has not unfortunately.

    • McM.

      I am sick of the attitude of “wait ‘n see” until a guy gets better. Performers will meet those lowered expectations which is why a good chunk of men in porn shouldn’t be there. I bet everyone on this board can name at least five off the top of their heads the industry failed to wash out. In the meantime gay performers who hit the ground running struggle to receive due recognition and significant studio work. Ty Mitchell WAS among them, but even after his award I’d be surprised if he were highlighted in scenes.

      • Scrapple

        I agree to an extent. But a good deal of the time models don’t progress not because they don’t want to, but because the studio puts no effort into molding them. They’re only interested in getting whatever scenes they can before the model changes his mind, or they get scooped on snatching up the next new thing on the market.

        Also, I think we tend to forget how long it actually took some of our porn faves to actually turn it out. Look at Ryder’s transition to Dante Colle. Cooper Reed and Justin Matthews. Calvin Banks started as a somewhat tradey top. It took Roman and Gage years after leaving Sean Cody and Chaos Men respectively before Aiden became a cum guzzling pig at Corbin Fisher. Vander didn’t become CM’s resident legend until years after his solo at CF. Before Paddy was slurping on assholes like they hold the key to world peace, he was a guy hopping from studio to studio doing solos and the occasional toy video. Topher went from shy twink having bareback sex at CM to modeling underwear and being accused of being a sexual predator. Sometimes patience has its rewards. Sometimes it doesn’t. You just never know what a model will end up becoming. That’s what makes it all so fun and so frustrating.

        • McM.

          Lack of progress due to studio environment or performer indifference. I see the issues as two sides of the same coin. Let’s use Next Door Segregation as one example, and then (heyday) Corbin Fisher as a counter.

          Studios hiring models working for their own brand instead of the company’s brand won’t put any effort into making them better performers. Why help a guy develop skills that’ll later go on to make another company money? I understand. Hire, film, move on. Unfortunately this feeds into the commonness of mediocrity that dulls viewer expectations. Unlike other sites, NDS has several exclusive performers working between Active Duty and non-Ebony lines at the main studio. ND has the opportunity to develop their skills but sadly don’t. And because they’re regularly booked for doing the bare minimum the performers aren’t improving on their own. Spencer Laval is a beautiful man, but he’s not exciting. Objectively. Each of his scenes have been lackluster, and for being in the AD/NDS eco-system upwards of seven months during that time someone should have taught him more than four positions and ways to fuck beyond stick it in and thrust steadily. People are hyped to watch him get fucked, but I predict his performance the upcoming scene will be “eh”. Because Next Door isn’t interested in core performer skill development I presume Spencer wasn’t shown how to confidently ride dick, and due to him not developing as a model on his own I’m equally sure Spencer didn’t ask. By no means is Spencer Laval the only guy at the studio with this problem. There’s plenty more.

          At Corbin Fisher, there was no room for that coin. The progress seen there wasn’t happenstance, it was by design. A model jacked off, fucked a women, did a MMF three-way, and then went on to fuck other men. And each time he appeared he had to do a little bit more than last time, do the same things better than he did last time. Once comfortable fucking men and proficient in his skills that same model went back to ease in a new guy moving past his JO & MF scenes. That was Aiden’s journey. I enjoyed every moment watching it since I knew it was going somewhere. The training and studio expectations set him up to succeed, as well as the other men on and off the Dean’s List who wanted to succeed. They simply became great performers and were rewarded for it. Even if there’s no interest in one of the models in a scene people would be hard pressed to say the fucking was terrible. (There was rare exceptions like Grant; how the hell he lasted so long is a mystery.) Something of note: all all the men on the Dean’s List and current regulars are versatile.

          As for Vander, he’s a complete outlier. Proximity and willingness to stick with ChaosMen for YEARS allowed us to watch him improve, but Vander did it all on his own. With novices taking up 2/3rd of production in solo and service scenes, Bryan Ockert has no space to mold performers, and he’s just as likely to release a low energy scene as one which happens to be good.

          I get tired of wait and see because performers aren’t incentivized to improve so the likelihood they will becomes slim. Watching guys coast isn’t fun for me. I see their limitations bringing down other performers. Ryder was brought up in Corbin Fisher outside of the structure described above. He was largely overshadowed and slow to improve but he did everything. Him becoming the freak-nasty we all know and love was awesome though he was unable to bring that energy to NDS.

          I suppose my perspective on them are a bit different, but I can appreciate your points.
          Though not the one where you called Calvin Banks “tradey”. Trade don’t eat ass from the start.

          • Scrapple

            Brand loyalty isn’t really a thing in porn these days. It’s pretty much impossible to create and maintain when there are so many options for models outside of studio work. Solos are basically digital resumes for their other porn pursuits.

            I think all the things you mentioned point more to a director issue than a performer issue. We’ve seen what the direction is like at AD. At ND it’s kind of the same, to an extent. You can always tell a Rocco scene from a Cameron scene. Models like Spencer who aren’t flashy at all tend to flail in a Cameron scene. Even someone like Ryder can’t overcome a Cameron vid (which are probably the ones where you think Ryder didn’t shine like normal).

            And with CF, those models didn’t become good of their own volition. Jason and the directors laid out what they wanted to see, and models progressed at various levels. But as with anything, if you’re not asking the models to progress, they won’t. People don’t generally go above and beyond what is expected of them on their own. Unless they’re incredibly dedicated workers. With respect to Aiden, he worked under three different studios which had similar styles. But he didn’t evolve until he got to CF. And even then, even after having done an oral scene at SC, look at how long it took him to do gay scenes at CF.

            Now when it comes to Vander, I again think directing played a part. However he does it, Bryan gets almost all of his models to come back for at least an oral scene. He also seems to have a rapport with his models, to the point that you have models returning after years away. I think that has translated into how he directs his scenes. The models are already comfortable with him, and the scenes are pretty much done in one take. That alone is going to help make certain models more willing to step it up. Look at Beckett. He didn’t go beyond a bi scene at CF and Bryan has him sucking dick and getting a load in his face.

            The Calvin Banks comment was more about his “I like to be in control” attitude in his early scenes. He even came off a certain way in that interview Zach did here. How he is now is noticeably different from how he started. And that’s beyond him being versatile now.

    • No_No_No_Yes

      Actually I have no real opinions of Callum, or whoever he is next week. I am more enthralled with the absolute verbal BLOW JOB Helix is giving RG, who for all intents and purposes is a total unknown, and worse yet if his scenes at GH are any indication – a total BUST. You always have the inside track, where are the receipts for all this adulation? I find it stunning that this is now the second porn studio to give this guy “Spielberg” status without an ounce of actual proof. This shit is CRAZY! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/029b007c443a4d81887000f39ec3d30e8e479578418534fba907bd1e63b23b19.gif

      • Zachary Sire

        I guess we’ll find out once his first scenes for Helix are out! I do know he’s worked for other studios (other than GayHoopla), and I’m presuming other people have seen his work elsewhere.

      • Hari Kalyan

        My thoughts exactly. This whole “story” is something I’ve never seen before, like gay porn news must really be slow if we’re now talking about press releases from the HR department lol

        • No_No_No_Yes

          I was just sitting here reflecting on just that, it’s a sad state of affairs when you are watching a scene and you don’t even know what the fuck you’re looking at.

      • sanfv

        I honestly think that some studio execs are enthralled by him and want to keep him close so they can sleep with him, thus the offers that most certainly have been sent to him. GH knew they had a hit on their hands, no matter how much of a bad performer he was because they knew we’d be talking about him in any capacity. Looks like someones MBA is being put to work lol.

        You’ve be amazed how many 49 year old gay men are 100 % okay with sucking a limp dick or getting kinda pounded by said limp dick as long as they’re verified straight.

        Older Gay men are attracted to what they “can’t have” and often, they’re bullies. I see the Helix exec in bed with him asking Callum McAndrews to call him the f word, or worse actually hurt him.

        • No_No_No_Yes

          Yeah, I’m afraid the nature of the beast is always 100% in the mix somewhere. I don’t know about GH, I am starting to think the stupid runs deep at that dumpster. I am guessing he puts his spiffy new porn name to use real soon, I don’t see him running Latte’s and hauling equipment.

          You know I think the whole issue I have with older guys goes back to my college years and the fuckery I went through just trying to kick it with my friends in the club – old fuckers that do not understand the word no. I don’t now nor have I ever had daddy issues, keep yer fuckin hands to yourself. It gave me the creeps then and it still does.

          As for Callum, everybody has their trial by fire in this world. The one thing he has going for him is that he can take his show anywhere as long as he isn’t dumb enough to sign anything he doesn’t have a lawyer read first.

          Helix isn’t normally even on my radar, and I think I’ll keep it that way where at all possible. I’d say RG is right where he belongs.

  • Mr. Copper

    Not surprising at ALL. I had a long conversation with “Buck Carter” who is now “Daxx Carter” about why he left Gayhoopla. He said the main reason is that he does consider himself bisexual but with little experience with men so far, and the atmosphere there was very hostile about gays and gay sex. The word f@g was thrown around and the overall attitude from a lot of who he referred to as the “new guys” was: “I might have sex with guys for money but I’m not a f@ggot!” He said the owner Landon is quite detached from the Gayhoopla stuff now and acted very arrogant and homophobic about hiring actual gay/bi guys. Their business model is apparently that gays pay to see straight guys, not “fairies.”

    Interestingly enough, he did tell me that in real life Colin Simpson is in fact bisexual and does fool around with guys off-camera. I guess take all of that for what it’s worth though.

    • wdeee

      Yeah Collin has a Grindr account and has talked about it on Twitter.

      • C A

        He sells a entirely different story on IG.

        • Helen Damnation™

          Please, where again?

    • sanfv

      Without naming names, there were two GH models that live in SF that told me the same thing. Both were gay and hated it there. When I make my jokes about the f word and bro fisting being thrown around, its tongue in cheek but carries some shade in their bad practices.

      I have been on a few sets before in straight porn, not as a model(lol) but as a reporter doing stories on sex work/ porn and they were very professional and there was no room for slurs or any abuse.

      • C A

        Alex and Forrest? Ms.Cleo told me all about it. Sad, really Forrest tried to reinvent himself and go on, but couldn’t for whatever reason. Alex, gurl….you’d think his name was Queenie and someone wrote a book about her and her self loathing indentity issue. They broke them good. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/689bb13973faf837d669a04dabdf197ee78316fda0799e9a397c73ed3a748796.gif

        • MC.EMC2

          What happened to Alex? Did GH screw him up?

          • C A

            He hasn’t made any more porn.

        • Anon

          I think its Mathieu, not Alex

          • C A

            I say Alex because he and Forrest are best friends of site. However, we’ve heard for long enough how badly they treat the gay identified guys to believe it coming from any of them.

  • wdeee

    He’s super cute. I’ll probably look at his work when I’m itching to see some straight boy action. Unfortunately most of these G4P guys can’t be as good of performers/unproblematic as Markie More.

    • sanfv

      Markie Moore is fulltime gay in Vegas, ask any queen down there. He’s one of those muscle, karma, astrology , burning man homos now!

      • wdeee

        When you say “fulltime” are you talking about escorting fulltime or the go to bars and take a guy home fulltime?

        • Mokojojo

          Fulltime as in out publicly. You can probably find the article here, but there was this whole thing about him retiring and then returning/maybe terafully coming out and pledging to donate $200 bucks from his scenes to a gay charity. It was a thing.

          • Jay

            Good.

          • wdeee

            This is news to me. Wow.

      • Scrapple

        You lie! Everyone knows Markie is only doing porn because a portion of his fee from every scene is donated to a gay cause or charity.

      • Proud Nerve

        what about his “wife”?

  • Tom

    He was so awkward in his 3 way that the other 2 guys basically ignored him. No loss.

  • Shawn

    He’s a hottie but he really didn’t seem to be in to the guy on guy stuff. Maybe it was the atmosphere at GH to blame and if he finds a new home his scenes will be better?

  • wdeee

    On second thought, he can retire. The ONLY str8 men I’m dying to see in gay porn are Ramon Nomar and Manuel Ferrera. Call me when they fuck a guy.

    • Willie Starr

      Ugh. Re: Str8 men, after all of Michael Vegas’ exposure on his ass play fetish, I’m dying to see him gangbanged. Even if it has to be a lesbian strap-on gangbang.

      • Just Google “James Oak” and “Mike Hancock”, there’s plenty to see of Michael Vegas there…

        https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4acb540a47386a3c75adbf36e9eae10e1016fc68b009cd6cf1142d8417d669b8.gif

        • MXD

          I always feel annoyed by Michael Vegas because he proudly gave an interview where he talked about begging Mike Hancock to take his scenes off of the website because women in his life were upset. And Mike agreed to do it, saying that he couldn’t do anything about the videos that were on other websites. And not long after Michael Vegas/James Oak is back doing straight porn. Which just seemed sketchy as hell to me.

          I’ve heard far too many guys brag about fucking over “the gays” or how “the gays” are stupid. And a lot of crossovers either keep quiet about LGBTQ+ stuff or they randomly shit talk gays and gay porn.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            I can see him being upset, what girl wants to fist a guy who would sooner be riding live dick.

        • Willie Starr

          Yep. I’ve seen a LOT of his work. Haven’t seen him gangbanged yet. =P

      • That Guy

        Michael Vegas is no stranger to gay sex.

        • TB

          OMG! What happened to him! He looks like he’s possesed by the devil now! Or possessed by the pussy. Ugh

        • Willie Starr

          I’ve seen his gay work. I guess my interests are a little more specific.

  • Scrapple

    Austin Wilde to Callum:

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0b64db8e55d62a0f63e6a500b9a9516f6852d9069f9eab7d127ce1ad659c3973.gif

    See Quin Quire, this is how you leave a studio. You don’t spill the tea yourself. You let someone else spill it while you wait at the park across the street with your binoculars and an almond biscotti. Callum seems to be channeling Liam Payne in this new era. And a nose ring? In 2018? Inferences can be made. But why did he have to go with Huntsman? That brings to mind one James Huntsman. Not exactly the image you’d want for your rebranding. If Collin Simpson wasn’t such a garbage person I’d say they should both leave and do a whole “Snow White and the Huntsman” thing. But he is, so I won’t.

    As I said before, GH did Kellan dirty with that threeway. Almost like they set him up to fail even though he was trying. There’s a reason he stayed with them for several years and didn’t just cross over to straight films. There’s a reason he decided to finally do gay porn. There’s a reason even after all this drama he’s still staying to do who knows what. And I don’t think all those reasons are money based. But we shall see.

  • Redphyro

    Go to CF and let Beau Max and Elian play with you!

  • Eric from Sweden

    Why have I never seen this guy before? He’s really handsome!

  • B.C.

    My safe bet is on MEN, there he would feel at home with so many GfP. Or NDS, they shoot straight scenes, I think. Don’t see him as CF material.
    Then again, he may have developed genuine thirst for some guy on guy action.

    • That Guy

      NDS hasn’t shot straight scenes in many months. They dont hae plans on doing them either.

      • B.C.

        Hmmm, didn’t know that.

  • Kevin

    He is probably showing up at GISP and their scenes do nothing for me.

    • Hari Kalyan

      yeah GISP gets a lot of praise for “doing it right” but honestly its just about chemistry and sometimes their scenes are dull

  • Hush-ins

    He is staying in porn industry? Wow.

  • Mokojojo

    I’m willing to see what he can do with some actual not shit direction because whatever new direction GH thought they were going in is worse than it was previously and someone put a little effort into making the new scenes bad. Until then, we have enough “porn stars” on twitter that aren’t shooting porn. That being said I’m waiting on the expose.

  • hotdickcum

    I like dramas.

    But really. I hate cliffhangers.

    Why do you have to do this to me?

  • a b

    Will he find another studio where he can act so passionless in gay sex?

    • Hari Kalyan

      lol stay tuned to this blog to find out

  • Sed

    What is it with companies like Gayhoopla and Sean Cody and Corbin Fisher not wanting there guys to have social media or interact with fans? Porn doesn’t pay enough for them to expect control of their models lives like that.

  • G. Lo

    Ahh the mystery “production firm” guy is a reactionary chud, my interest has suddenly bottomed out.

  • Helen Damnation™

    I don’t care what y’all say, I’m in love with Kellan/Callum’s hairy legs and ass. Or rather, his former hairy legs and ass. Some ding-dong talked him into shaving it all. It just ain’t the same. PLEASE: NO MORE SHAVING!

    • Helen Damnation™

      Wait up, just found out he’s a god damn Trump-a-Dump supporter. Bye Felicia, you goddamn idiot. I forgave you for shaving, can’t forgive you for supporting the most evil man in America. Now, fuck off.

  • TB

    TransAngels. I mean, he’ll end up there eventually anyhow. Lol

  • TruthTeller2020

    Why is Gayhoopla unraveling more entertaining than their actual scenes? I never saw the appeal in Kellan Hartman. He’s not stunningly gorgeous, and his not hung. Just another basic white guy with muscles. I simply don’t see it for him, especially with his skill level being the pits.

    • No_No_No_Yes

      I am somewhat stupefied they haven’t come forward with a statement addressing this entire fiasco. I mean whoever is in charge of damage control there is asleep at the wheel. If pandering on Twitter for snappy ideas to save your ass? You don’t need models and directors, you need to throw the whole bitch out and start over.

      That studio has got more shade than ML on his worst day right now, and it looks like we have indeed located the village idiot, he calls the shots there. If I were a subscriber? I’d have pulled the plug over the 3 way that failed. But even those slow to the draw where it comes to stopping that monthly payment have to be ready to hit the cancellation line. They have been given zero credible reason not to.

      As for what’s his name, he is a cute guy, he will land on his feet. He is handsome enough to pretty much write his own ticket anywhere right now, the drought of hot men in gay porn has been epic this past 6 months. He would be a perfect fit at NDS, but no matter where he goes, he does need to be careful with his next move. You only get so many bites of that apple before the worm turns.

  • Scrapple

    When Ryan’s first GH scene was released and revealed to be subpar, followed by his departure, the natural assumption was he couldn’t deliver on his promises. Now it looks like it’s back to GH dropping the ball. I don’t know what to believe. But Callum following the director the just brought in to another site to be his PA sounds weird. To go from not jumping into gay porn for three years, to now being a PA for someone shooting twink porn? There’s a story here. And it’s probably a juicy one.

    Having said that, I shall now take a moment and imagine Callum in scenes with Blake, Corbin, Johnny and Josh.

    • B.C.

      I do wonder what kind of personal assisting is happening with RG. Is Callum giving hand or …giving head. I know, my mind is completely stuck in the gutter. Hopefully he’s doing a better job behind camera than he was in front of.

      • Scrapple

        Maye he’s aspiring to be the next Joe Gage.

        • B.C.

          There’s a long, winding road ahead of him, but I guess that’s a start.

    • No_No_No_Yes

      I could be off base, but it doesn’t happen often. Sounds to me the more logical explanation was that RG wen’t to Helix, throwing the blame for the mess his scenes turned out to be back at GH (which may or may not be true), then added the bargaining chip that he had access to a particular talent that Helix would kill for – which closed the deal.

      What remains to be seen is whether RG can actually deliver. Having viewed his “Debut” turd, I am skeptical at best. That scene was a fucking disgrace. THAT was one hell of a tall pile of bullshit they laid out in their announcement, I am going to assume there will be a veritable ARMY of people working with RG to make fucking sure the GH disaster does not repeat itself.

      I fully expect Callum will be added to the stable of “top only” studs, all lined up to bang all the pubescent boy holes they can fit on his dick. What will prove interesting is how this will all play out with that many tops vying for top billing. Interesting days ahead at Helix for sure. As I said elsewhere, I wonder if they are not angling to build a “next generation” level to their brand as well, as a good segment of their “twink” population is about to age out, and will need a new vehicle to stay relevant. “The Helix Senior Class”.

      • Scrapple

        Even if that’s how it went down, you’d still have to wonder how Ryan convinced Callum to come along for the ride. By all accounts Ryan wasn’t even at GH that long. In that short of time he struck up a friendship with Callum where he was ready to tell the GH crew to kick rocks and peace out? I don’t know where GH films their content but I’m sure I’ve never heard it was in Vegas. There’s another layer to this story we haven’t heard yet.

        • No_No_No_Yes

          Baby it is all about the money – it ALWAYS is. Helix has been enjoying a pretty cushy slot, they clearly have the surplus to toss down a signing bonus.

          As for his connection to RG, it doesn’t take long to get a number from someone who is not happy with where they are. In my line of work I see talent snatching on the regular, it is almost always when some fool left a “non compete” contract out of the employee package. All it takes is one disgruntled employee with balls.

          RG whoever she is clearly has balls in spades. This person is clearly not shy about self promotion, so far he has managed to get 2 studios to lay down “introductions” as if he is the second coming of Christ. Is it really such a stretch he managed to convince an inexperienced guy?

          I really want to see this body of “work” this dude is using as his “magnum-opus”, I need to understand how this clown is not hiding under his desk after the carnage he left at GH. I mean he obviously utterly pulled the wool over their eyes – that “big debut” was an absolute DISASTER.

          Yet he manages to keep from dropping any REAL details. I smell a rat.

          • Scrapple

            Yeah, I don’t think so. How much money is Callum going to pull in as a PA? He could make bank easily with a fan account where he doesn’t have to leave the privacy of his own home, he can make his own hours and be his own boss. And if the money was an issue, why didn’t he fence hop earlier? Now had you said the job comes with vision and dental I might could believe it. But I think this goes beyond a salary incentive.

            But think about it. If RG was really as incompetent as we’ve been led to believe, and Kellan saw that incompetency firsthand, why leave with him? If someone comes to your job and you can see they’re not on it, who follows them out the door to another venture? I just find it hard to believe this RG person is such a snake charmer he managed to get Callum to go all in (or partially in) to whatever he was selling, meanwhile the guys Callum worked with took three years to get him to say yes. Something else is going on. Mark my words.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            I don’t know why you think that is such a stretch. The whole PA thing is a total smoke screen. I don’t know about you, but I have YET to encounter someone who was utterly TERRIBLE at what they were doing, readily admit it. Rather they usually have a laundry list of other people they are blaming for their issues.

            You have 2 individuals here who were both pretty much “outsiders” to the environment they were working in, one with enough life experience and clearly a big enough line of bullshit he managed to make GH trip and fall on their own sword. You really think Callum couldn’t be wrangled?

            Hey – time will tell, I may be totally off base. But my gut is telling me the real shade has yet to land.

          • Scrapple

            I agree, the reason he left isn’t to be a PA. There’s another story there that goes beyond RG being some charismatic leader who makes people follow him. Kellan wasn’t an outsider. He was there for three years essentially being propped up as the site’s prized pig. I’m sure his reasons for leaving were numerous. But I don’t think this move is a money grab. It doesn’t make sense since he could make easy money on his own.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            See – he has 13 videos between 2 SITES. Spread out over that length of time? THAT is hardly enough to cover 2 semesters of community college, let alone support him. Hardly what I would call a “Prized Pig”. An overlooked potential is more like it.

            Given that the majority of his “work” has been this year? I’d say whatever other options he thought he had didn’t pan out. I highly doubt they had to work very hard at all to get him into the gay work, all a matter of digits.

            To us who have been around for a while it seems he could easily venture out on his own, but we are talking about a very young guy with very limited life experience here.

            One thing is for sure – this will be an interesting few months!

          • No_No_No_Yes

            I could follow your line of thought if it weren’t for both the timing, and the announcement that DETAILS them as a pair. THAT is not an accident, certainly not 2 people “organically” showing up and the same location, and it certainly isn’t being billed as such.

            He is making his entrance at Helix “beside” RG, that speaks to more than a coincidence and it certainly rules out happenstance. Watching him in his scenes, it isn’t like this kid is a deep thinker lol. He was hit and miss up till this year, and I think the pay jump to gay porn was motivational.

            It may be true he wasn’t new to the company, but he was new to the gay porn side of it, so yes – he was an outsider in that little circle and if the 3 way scene was any indication he wasn’t exactly being greeted warmly. Discontent only requires seeds.

            I would love to see this guy wind up at GISP or NDS, I think his potential will be squashed at Helix. They are already working Johnny Hands over to what end who knows.

          • Scrapple

            Them being a pair wouldn’t make me think it has something to do with money. You’re thinking it’s a money grab, but that doesn’t make sense. Again, who pulls up stakes and moves to go be a PA for a guy making twink porn? Callum took this job for some reason other than money.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            Again – the PA thing is all smoke. What earthly reason would he have for choosing a new name if he were going to be a PA LOL! Seriously, there isn’t a lot of thought to it. It is pretty much always exactly what it looks like.

          • Scrapple

            There would be no reason for them to lie about him going to work as a PA. What purpose would that serve?

          • No_No_No_Yes

            Yeah cuz nobody ever lies in gay porn. LMMFAO! You called it yourself yesterday, there is no upside to him going to work as a PA. You are pretty much asking and answering. All excited about lugging equipment and chasing Latte’s? Something is way off, aside from him being the only recorded “PA” in history included in a “press release” as an accessory, complete with spiffy new porn name. I guess we will wait and see. I am dying to see RG’s next brilliant endeavor. The Collin/Kellan scene was a steaming turd. It won’t be hard to top the scenes he did that have been released so far. Until then I will keep my sunglasses on so you can’t see my side eye.

          • Scrapple

            But you’re the one saying RG spirited him away and used him as a bargaining chip to get into Helix. I’m the one saying this job isn’t why he left. And neither is the money. And when I turn out to be right, remember this conversation.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            LOL! ! I would hardly paint it as “spiriting away”, that is a bit melodramatic. Used him as a bargaining chip? Hell yeah – totally. I mean SERIOUSLY? Have you really looked at RG’s scenes? Half in the bag with an old super 8 my MOM could have done better.

            But it’s all good. So what your saying is that he and RG are fucking? Well I can’t say THAT has never happened, wrecked the fuck out of that porn star too. Don’t worry – I doubt the coming shit storm will allow me to forget this.

            I am more interested that he managed to get Helix to bite at all after the 3 way, unless this deal was cut before that was released.

          • Scrapple

            But you still haven’t said how RG could convince Kellan to be used as a bargaining chip. Kellan is the one with the clout, not RG. “I need you to get this job, so come with me and then you’ll be my assistant?” Nothing about that would be appealing.

            Like I said, I don’t know what their deal is. But I can see them being friends more than I can see Callum being manipulated by some shifty grifter to go be a glorified gopher. That deal is only beneficial to RG, not Callum. Which is why I don’t think that’s what happened.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            Well we shall see what unfolds., and yes, it would not be the first time in history someone leveraged access to another as a bargaining tool. Especially if that party had intimate knowledge that said talent was getting ready to make a jump that could be hugely beneficial. But it is indeed all wild conjecture at this point. The PA job is a total load. That much I will stand by.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            Another thing to point out, Callum had only done a few jerk scenes with very limited camera work needed, and a few fucks scenes that were also pretty limited. Now you got RG racing all over the place with cameras and equipment – in the air, on the ground looking pretty legit from HIS perspective. Impressive even.

            So now you got a dude in his early twenties watching a middle aged guy moving around like he is shooting “The Titanic”, and you don’t see where that might leave an impression? Keep in mind – he has no idea what the end result looks like, or how it fairs against the work of this guy’s piers.

            Getting Callum on board would be small potatoes for a guy who managed to convince GH he was going to reinvent their site. I’m DED! LOL! The only things that remain to be seen are this guys actual credits. Given the blow job they gave him in the intro, I for one am now SERIOUSLY curious to see these great works.

            I am guessing he is using past “non-disclosure” as a tool to keep from actually citing these scenes, which also prevents anyone from checking his story – it is the perfect scam. I could be wrong, in which case I won’t be afraid to admit it. But I have seen all this shit before in different settings.

            So, my question to you is this, how do we get to a list of these “incredible” credits?

          • Scrapple

            I think you’re giving RG way more credit than he deserves. He couldn’t even convince viewers he had cam skillz, but you think he convinced Callum to reinvent himself…as a PA…at Helix? I’m not seeing it.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            Not as a PA, that is a bunch of tosh. Why would he even bother picking another “porn name”. How else would you explain this little alliance?

          • Scrapple

            I think it’s very possible he could be working behind and in front of the camera. Like Harper or Connor did at CF. The difference is those models were already working for the site when they moved behind the camera. If Callum wanted to model for Helix, he could’ve just done that. There has to be some other kind of deal in the works. You really think he’s going to be a gopher? Do you know how shitty PA jobs can be?

            I don’t know what their situation is. But I’m almost certain it didn’t involve RG spiriting him away like Rapunzel. Maybe they were friends. Maybe they were fucking. Who knows.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            LOL dude, ya gotta love gay porn. One thing GH did manage to do was get a shitton of free press, between the “Bruce” thing and now this? That bunch of hoes needs leadership,and a better legal adviser.

          • Scrapple

            The Bruce press where he said their pay was shitty and they don’t test models? I don’t think they were pumping their fists over that one.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            There is much truth to even bad press is better than no press.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            Yeah, as a matter of fact I think they were. Per their Twitter: “Do you think we should be more controversial?” Perfection.

            According to the stats – I’d say shit stirring is their best friend. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f3421f3d6ec0f4aa8e458e77e513be47416cd6fe2898d3096aa68ba84581975e.jpg

          • No_No_No_Yes
          • Scrapple

            Is that supposed to be Johnny Hands?

          • No_No_No_Yes

            Bitch – it’s johnny alright! LOL! Let me just say he takes a dick just as good as he gives.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            I know, it’s a little like finding out Robin was fucking Batman all along.

          • Scrapple

            Batman? More like Penguin.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            LOL yeah he ain’t exactly what *I* would have picked for the first time seeing Johnny taking dick.But frankly I was so gobsmacked at the sight of Johnny with his ass in the air, trust I was not watching much of the top.

          • No_No_No_Yes
          • No_No_No_Yes

            I can’t ID the top, he was not exactly a rockstar – he actually lost his wood fucking him on his back (dude I can’t even wrap my head around that) But Johnny was in fact fucked to completion in the end.. You can see it is cam footage, so I can’t really “date” it, but there was definitely peen in butt, not exactly rough riding but this did not appear to be new to him. Further proof he is utterly WASTED at Helix. Unless of course Callum is going there to fuck him, in which case all is forgiven. I mean, I will even forgive RG if he can make that happen. I’ll SWEAR all his scenes are masterpieces if he can get the two to flip fuck.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            Dude. Callum and Johnny in a flip fuck would BREAK the internet.

          • Scrapple

            Probably.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            I think it is definitely pre-Helix, there is actually some spanking at the start that is pretty hot too. MAN he has got a fine ass.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            Okay, after much digging, the top is Leon Spinaker, a CAM model from Florida who’s partner Mat Spinaker, (total Helix material) also banged Johnny. SO. Maybe Johnny’s bottoming cameo is not too far off. The scene with Matt was WAY hotter, but in both scenes Mr. Hands had no trouble exploding.

          • Scrapple

            Knowing his name doesn’t make it any less gross.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            LOL – Actually, I found yet another scene, called “Johnny goes to hell”, It is actually both amusing and hot. Better than any GH scene I have seen in the past 6 months. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/27770fb10cc3ff6a7d9287408a92ee8958133bc7b8b80ed23dbbd7af6cbdefd5.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/47b0115cd76944367d7bd33f1b7a942242f4ef30557d5d9af2a08b57ced16574.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0bb76e0e19d667c435785a06b2b19178cf6c80076fb8608f88e0152cfea3c574.jpg

            It has bondage, spanking, and he gets fucked by both Matt and Leo. Granted not as much as I would have liked, but hey – baby steps. If this is hopefully a preview of things to come.. Johnny Hands will set some records. Damn he looks SO hot getting fucked. He REALLY needs to be at NDS.

          • Scrapple

            I think you need to pull yourself out of Johnny’s rabbit hole. None of this looks appealing. Not the tops or that hideously appointed dwelling.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            LOL, you don’t like Johnny’s hole?

          • Scrapple

            I’m not trying to see it corrupted by street urchins.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            I think you’re really missing out. “Johnny goes to hell” is more a hot “gay comedy” skit, – like if Chris Farley had been hot and gay this would totally have been him.

            Two twinks chloroform and snatch Johnny off the street while he is jogging. He wakes tied to a chair (terribly) – The two twinks “force feed” him some dick, some hot oral, some tickling, scene switches to Johnny on all fours hands tied.

            He gets convincingly fucked by them both, (Note, they ACTUALLY got the penetration AND close up unlike some other fool) followed by a “sorta” hot jerk scene (You KNOW I hate those) Then a tied up spanking sesh, followed by a “Bound Gods” type skit at the end, with Johnny ACTUALLY tied up while they polished his dick and tickled him.

            It closes with out takes that were actually quite hilarious. Like two skinny twinks dressed “Men in Black” style trying to pick up an “unconscious” Johnny Hands, in the middle of a suburban street in broad daylight, and put him in the trunk of a Lincoln kinda funny.

            As big a reach as I am sure you find it to be, given the gay porn scene at this time, DESPITE having only one semi decent camera (I’m being generous), these three managed to sincerely entertain the shit out of me. What wasn’t funny – was actually cute and kinda hot. I mean YES it was crude, but it showed MORE imagination than ANYTHING I have seen in gay porn for the longest.

            The tongue in cheek factor in this was fucking awesome. I came away with a tiny crush on all three of them. I find funny sexy. If these guys had a better camera, and another friend to operate it and work on the close ups, added a bit more fucking ( I mean seriously, you got Johnny all lubed up and loose – WTF!) – they would be onto something.

            I actually paid for that scene, and to be honest I feel better about that than I do about the money I spend on porn sites like SC and their corporate canned bullshit content. More than anything I REALLY wish there were more minds like this in gay porn.

  • Redphyro

    If he is working now behind the camera then why bother?!

  • Tempest

    So this dude made just one gay scene in his career (with multiple str8 scene in three years), and now is gonna work as a PA for Ryan? At Helix of all places?!

    Sus af.

  • PhotoWerner

    Per the latest GH release, Kellan/Callum couldn’t even get hard with Collin Simpson. Unless Helix has a magic wand that makes Callum hard, what’s the point of all this.

    Oh, then again, we don’t even know if Callum is going to be in front of the camera or behind the scenes. After his VERY intentionally vague non-coming out video, I’m going to bet the heavens that he’s a straight-identified but gay-money-greedy performer. Otherwise, why would he have stuck to the straight side of things for so long only to FINALLY end up on the gay side of things with some brand new performance issues?

    Besides, there was something very unattractive about his latest video on Twitter. Somehow his sex appeal in that video dropped by half.

    • No_No_No_Yes

      I’m no “Callum” stan but dude I couldn’t stay hard fucking Collin unless they let me duct tape his mouth shut. Just sayin.

      • B.C.

        It’s not just his loudmouth. Circa two years ago Collin was a handsome lad, but now he is a walking commercial for anabolics. Really sad…

        • No_No_No_Yes

          But you see where I am going with this, I mean if *I* a 100% gay man could not stay hard hitting that – how is anyone going to give Callum shit.

          • Tempest

            But Callum wasn’t hard even without Collin, I mean if that atrocity of a threesome can be considered proof. And Collin was a very fine gentleman a couple of years ago, this current form is a mess.

            I also think it’s kinda weird that he made a tweet saying that he basically doesn’t think of himself as straight, then wtf did you stay limp so far in your gay career and looked pretty hung with some vaginas around? Even with the rumours of the owners looking down on gay sex and gay people in general, is he figuring out his sexuality?

            I just don’t know what the fuck I’m supposed to think anymore, this industry seems to fucking itself up by each passing day.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            Well first you have to consider the company he is in, the way that 3 way was shot I am not shocked all three models were in “wood peril”, I could barely follow the action in slow motion. What was very clear was that 2 of the models would have preferred he was not there at all.

            His scene with Collin? Again, that dude is boner death. I can’t fault him there either. Put him in a scene with Donte Thick or Spencer Laval. If he is still having wood issues? He needs to leave porn, it is not for him.

            He could still be figuring out his sexuality, that isn’t as cut and dried for everyone, and everyone has their own path to that discovery. There is a ton involved in that process, I have met guys who got into their 40’s who were dealing with their truth. Others that may never really accept theirs.

            You aren’t wrong, gay porn is in a state right now. I don’t see an end in sight.

          • Tempest

            See that’s why I think going to Helix is a bad idea imo, he could’ve been more useful over at CF, GISP, NDS or hell, even SC at this point.

            I also refuse to believe Ryan worked with the studios I mentioned (CF and NDS) because it seems like this dude just started a couple of days ago.

            I just don’t understand why doing all of this WITH Ryan, there’s obviously something that they’re trying to hide and I can’t figure out what, guess we’ll find out soon.

          • No_No_No_Yes

            The only way this move does make sense is if Ryan brokered the deal. There is no other logical explanation, just as there would be no reason for him to even choose a new porn name if there were no clear intention of actually DOING porn. The story is all there, you just have to read between the lines.

            Having seen the utterly dreary pickings SC and CF have been drawing, it isn’t a stretch that Ryan used his “liaison” with Callum to make himself a new deal. One that I am relatively certain he was putting together while he was still with GH.

            The fact this dude as a “director” felt the need to make a big spectacle entering GH AND leaving, now this big “announcement”? Like seriously this dude obviously has a high opinion of himself, for WHAT is what I am not seeing. The idea he has now run this line of shit on 2 studios I think it is high time he put forth his credentials.

            Directors have come and gone in porn for ever, NONE of them felt the need for this kind of adulation ESPECIALLY when NOBODY knows who the fuck they are. Marc muthafuckin Macnamarra let’s his name rolling in the credits speak for him. (Despite his horrific work) Now a highly visible director like him I could understand some kerfuffle over.

            The REAL news here? ZERO citations of his actual work. Show me the receipts. Sorry, after seeing that 3 way? Skeptical doesn’t even begin to cover it.

  • FrenchBug

    There is nothing that says Fuck You to your audience more than hiring a straight man with only one disaster of a scene under his belt as your new “exclusive top” and hope we applaud.
    As to Ryan Gordon, considering the disaster of the past few months, maybe it’s time to stop releasing long-winded dumb public statement and do what most gay porn videographers do, which is just do the work and shut up. There is something that really really smells funky with all this; Zach himself said he had never heard of this guy until the GH stuff and now we are supposed to applaud this as a coup? Who the hell is this guy and why are we hearing from him more in two months that I have heard from any other porn director in years?
    I unsubscribed Helix six months ago when the fancy-artsy lighting started becoming abominable and looks like they ain’t getting me back anytime soon https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1c87db01ed383c44e005f6648b3ff5acaaebb2126237feee2b793bccf1f2505c.gif

    • stagboys

      Who said Callum was straight? Where does it say he’s an “exclusive top” for Helix?

  • TruthTeller2020

    The new information about the director signing up with Helix, makes it seem pre-planed. There is something fishy but intriguing about this drama. It wouldn’t surprise me, if it turns out Callum and the producer are dating.

  • Cosmic

    So many names and none that I recognize in the slightest.

    And now it turns out that not only is he straight, but he is also a big Trump supporter. Marvelous. What a turd cake of an idea this is. What is Helix thinking?
