This isn't new but it's noteworthy. Dreamy actor Darien Sills-Evans stars in one of the Chemistry.com television spots that takes eHarmony to task for rejecting applicants. Some of the storylines in the "Rejected" campaign specifically refer to sexuality, but, this spot is ambiguous, which makes it very interesting.
In the spot, Darien says he "received a Dear John letter from eHarmony" rejecting his application. "Man, I started lifting, working out a little bit, you know, trying to get in shape," he explains. Not sure what the bias could be, but, take your choice—race, sexuality, not muscular enough, who knows. The comment thread at YouTube goes back and forth on dating services that discriminate against gays, so, maybe there was some (very subtle) gay subtext.
It's always great to Darien Sills-Evans working, with his nerdy-sexy self. It was hard not to love his work long ago on Cosby, but, we'll always remember his performance in The Reception, where he plays a closeted gay man involved in a complex love triangle. That film has never received the praise that its due and provides two outstanding roles for black gay film characters.
