“Can You Hear Me Now?” Guy, is Queer and Talks

by Accidental Bear

A frickin’ 9 year contract, that’s insane. I actually didn’t assume he was gay from the Verizon adds. I thought maybe he was just one of those sensitive, straight hipster types. Now that I know, I am curious what he has to say. He mentions that his contract made it impossible to report  homophobia. I’m dying to know where this homophobia occurred that he talks of. Inquiring minds want to know. Can YOU, hear me now?

Paul Marcarelli, the gay actor known for years as the Verizon “Test Man,” is finally free to talk, now that his restrictive nine-year contract with the company is nearing an end.

The Huffington Post reports on an interview Marcarelli gave to The Atlantic.

“His silence, he told The Atlantic, was more or less required as part of his contract with Verizon,” reports HuffPo. “Since the company has informed him that the curtain will soon fall on the ‘Test Man’ character, Marcarelli now feels comfortable speaking about the role.”
