Cody Kearsley is open to venture into gay roles as an actor
Cody Kearsley is an uprising Canadian actor climbing the ladder of success through his amazing performance as Moose in Riverdale and Turbo Bro Jock in Daybreak.
While both of his roles might lead people to presume his sexuality, the actor is, in fact, straight.
Kearsley's Gay Roles
The British Columbia, Canada-native has been a part of two TV shows—and in both shows, he has brilliantly portrayed the role of a bisexual. Among those shows, one is the hit CW series, Riverdale (2017-20).
In Riverdale, Kearsley portrays Marmaduke "Moose" Mason, a bisexual character. In the series [spoiler alert], he is in a relationship with both a boy and a girl. At first, Moose was dating Midge Klump, played by actress Emilija Baranac. As the show progresses, they separate, and later, in the third season, Moose is in a gay relationship with Kevin Keller, played by actor Casey Cott.
However, as Moose is afraid to reveal his sexual orientation, he keeps his relationship a secret. Later, he finally confesses to his father. This angers his father, who threatens to put him in the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. As a result of that, Moose leaves Riverdale (the place) and lives in his aunt’s house in Glendale.
The other bisexual character he played was in the Netflix comedy-drama Daybreak. In the series, he was even involved in some kissing scene with another male character, Wesley Fists, portrayed by Austin Crute.
Off-screen, Kearsley is a close friend of Austin Crute, his gay Daybreak co-star. During an interview with Gaytimes in October 2019, Crute revealed that he had a good friendly relationship with Kearsley and that he loves his habits and overall personality traits, but stressed how weird it was to kiss his straight co-star in the show.
The 6 feet 2 inches tall actor is a very secretive guy who likes to keep his personal life details behind the curtains.
In front of the curtains, the actor is setting his sights on bigger things. He recently stood his ground against box-office juggernaut Bruce Willis in the 2020 film Breach. Although he had played as Hawkeye in the 2017 Power Rangers, this was the first time he was the lead in a movie, and that too, alongside Willis.
The Daybreak actor can next be seen as Travis in River Road alongside Melanie Rose Wilson. The film is based on an intense romantic relationship between a rock musician (Kearsley) and a free-spirited woman (Wilson). Still, it later spirals out of control into a world of drug addiction and crime.
