Is He Gay?
One of the interesting things about actors and the way the audience perceives them are the assumptions that are made about their lives based on the characters they play on screen. There is no common example of this than assumptions of the sexuality of actors, especially when they play gay characters.
David Hull has been at the receiving end of these assumptions as his character on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, White Josh, who is gay, has led to speculation that he is gay. It doesn’t also help that he possesses an incredibly fit body that is often considered a defining feature of gay men.
However, there is no real evidence to conclude that the actor is gay. He has neither denied nor confirm the assumptions and as such, one can expect the rumors to hang around for a while yet.
We mentioned earlier that David Hull is an incredibly fit man and it is quite evident by taking a quick glance at him. He sports a very defined muscular body which looks great in combination with his light brown hair and dark brown eyes.
