Queer Eye's Jai Rodriguez joins Horizon web series
Emmy award winning actor Jai Rodriguez will be joining the cast of popular gay web series The Horizon. Rodriguez jets into Sydney this week to guest star as a sexy promiscuous pop singer, Richie Valentine.
It’s not the first time Rodriguez has shown his support for the series. Earlier this year played host for the premiere of season 4 in LA.
After meeting producer Brian Cobb and lead actor Patrick James in LA recently he agreed to travel down under to play a guest role in the show which currently had clocked up over 22 million views.
Cobb said, “Having someone of Jai’s notoriety and ability in the series can only be a positive thing for the show. It will bring even more awareness to us which is wonderful as we are a vehicle for safe sex and HIV awareness”.
Actor Patrick James said, “The show is now at a point where well known actors are knocking on the door to be a part of the series. Myself and the other actors are excited to be working with quality and welcome Jai with open arms.”
Roderiguezdescribed his meeting with Brian and Patrick as serendipitous.
"Having transitioned back to scripted work I jumped at the offer to join The Horizon team. Not just for the great content but also the message behind it.”
Rodriguez is best known for his presenting role as the ‘culture guy’ on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, but prior to appearing in the popular reality show as an actor and musical theatre star in Canada.
