Chris Galya: Actor Slash Model
In his latest, 1313: Actor Slash Model (2011), you get what the title says: a disgruntled actor loses an important role to a beefcake body, and starts slashing some male models. Mostly amateurs, or professional models with only a few acting credits: Chase Bennett, Jared Edwards, David Flannery, Christian Lake, Wagner Sandoval -- and Chris Galya.
Jessie (2011-2013), about a girl who gets a job as a nanny for the adopted children of a wealthy couple (while waiting for her big break as a singer/actress, naturally). Chris plays Tony, the teenage doorman at her building, and her main love interest.
I've only seen a few episodes: no nudity, so Chris is one of those unexpected Disney hunks.
And no gay subtexts. In fact, it's one of the Disney Channel's more heterosexist vehicles, with all of the kids, even the youngest, expressing hetero-horniness.
And on the teencom Jesse (2011-2015)
And he's a real model, with runway work in London, New York, and Milan, and photos in Saks Fifth Avenue Men, Ford L.A. Men, Chaos Magazine, and elsewhere. Vera's Big Gay Blog has lots more pictures of his work.
On the other hand, he's a big sports fan, clogging his twitter feed with play-by-plays of football and baseball games..
