New upcoming actor Chris Salvatore hit the big screen in the side-splitting gay romantic comedy “Eating Out: All You Can Eat,” the third installment of the successful “Eating Out” franchise. Chris, 24, of Philadelphia, PA, plays the leading interest, Zack, who gets the attention of Tiffani’s bosom buddy Casey, who’ll do anything to get close to him. Zack is lured by a fake online profile created by Tiffani and Casey, using an image of Tiffani’s ex-boyfriend Ryan. To Casey’s dismay, Zack meets the real Ryan and his dirty plot backfires right in front of him, forcing Casey to set things right.
“I think Zack’s the most real character in the movie,” explains Chris. “He isn’t really the jokey one in the film. He’s gentle, gullible and mysterious but, at the same time, he has this sex appeal about him that grabs the attention of the new to-town Casey. One thing that stood out the most to me was that Zack really is the opposite of the gay stereotype—the stereotype that ignorant people believe in anyway. You know, here is this nice guy—charming, passionate about helping the community and passionate about finding love—whose sense of normalcy really mixes nicely with the crazy plot and steamy sexcapades.”
As an openly gay performer, Chris believes that the film, which includes a cast of almost entirely out gay actors, truly reflects the progress of America and sheds light on the gay stereotypes, discrimination and bullying. “It’s important to be a part of a film knowing that it’s okay to be yourself and to let people know who you are and what you stand for. Everyone, the cast and the crew, was incredibly nice and we’re all a part of something that has the opportunity to help the gay community.”
The candid actor is also a talented singer-songwriter, having released his debut album “After All Is Said and Done” in 2008 in which his song “Done to Me” was featured on MTV’s “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF.” Chris also contributes a song to the “Eating Out” soundtrack, which is being used as the end credits song.
“The message of the film is really inspiring,” admits Chris. “Even though the movie is mostly a sex comedy, the message and the lessons that the characters learn are truly what makes the film unique. It really does make you feel all warm and fuzzy.”
