Former Kid Actor Blake McIver Gets Buff, Croons About Bullying Gay Kids

blake-mciver-ewing-selfieThis is kind of a late entry to the “It Gets Better” songbook, but we’ll allow it: former child star Blake McIver has released a new song about bullying and optimism and feeling comfortable about yourself.

Blake, you’ll recall, was the adorable “Waldo” in 1994’s The Little Rascals. These days, he’s a super-hunk, flashing his muscular arms and lean physique in skimpy swimwear. When he’s not singing or acting, he’s go-go dancing, and we can hardly take exception to that.

But for his It Gets Better video, he’s kept it modest. He wears a simple tank top as he strolls invisibly through a sinister church, soulfully singing to those oppressed by religion.

He faced some tough times growing up: his parents sent him to a conservative Baptist school where he was abused by his peers. Living well is the best revenge, though, and now he’s blossomed into quite the heartthrob.

In fact, Blake has a whole album out now called The Time Manipulator. It is, as the name suggests, themed around time travel, which is awesome.

    I guess his publicist is doing his job but I just can’t figure out how they’ve managed to get him any attention.

    i like this look much better than before, makes him way hotter and not so stereotypically gay looking. he should do porn.

  • seaguy

    he’s got a good voice but his music seems more broadway showtunes stuff than something people are going to want to play on their iphone while commuting or working out so he is not going to be a pop star with this stuff.

    I think he looks good in his undies,like to see more.
