Gay Atlanta actor bares all in primetime TV debut

A gay Atlanta journalist and self-described actorepreneur scored his first primetime TV appearance, serving up Hot Guy on TNT and packing a brief scene with every sexy, ablicious second he could.

The Dec. 13 role in “Good Behavior” was quick but wow, it let fans and friends see a new side of Caleb Spivak. In fact, the scene left little to the imagination as Spivak and his toned torso added a gritty bit of mansex to the show.

It's brief. It's fleeting. And it's hot.

About 35 minutes into the episode Spivak's Hot Guy, stripped of clothes, is topping Kyle Dash (Justin Bruening) as he pushes him face down on a desk. Letty Raines (Michelle Dockery) barges in. Dash sees Raines and tries to unhitch himself from Hot Guy, who's too in the moment to notice the interruption. So Hot Guy forces a squirming Dash back down on the desk before his distracted bottom eventually disentangles himself from Hot Guy and his man goodness. 

Hot Guy, still oblivious to Raines, shows the frustration every man knows when he's stopped short of that blissful moment of release.

“Dude, why'd we even bother with the safe word,” Spivak's Hot Guy says as he cups his mancandy and Dash runs after Raines, who has fled the office.

Daytime Confidential said Spivak's mystery hunk knew how to deliver a “good and proper” pounding. No doubt that quip is coming soon to a Grindr profile.

Soap opera fans tuning in to TNT's new drama “Good Behavior” saw a side of “All My Children” alum Justin Bruening they'd never seen before. Tuesday night's installment found Kyle Dash (Bruening) being bent over and serviced good and proper by a mystery hunk (Caleb J. Spivak).

Kyle is the old flame of central anti-heroine Letty Dobesh (“Downton Abbey's” Michelle Dockery). He married Letty's best friend Tiffany (Collette Wolfe) after Letty, a thief and con artist, split town years ago. 

Tiffany was devastated to find Kyle kissing Letty in a previous episode. Sounds like this guy is all over the Kinsey scale. What would Joe and Ruth Martin say?

Spivak's appearance in the episode – titled “We Pretend We're Stuck” – was his major network debut. Spivak has nine acting credits, including “Your Worst Nightmare,” My Annoying Dead Brother” and “Legends & Lies.” 

Gay Atlanta is likely more familiar with the clothed, entrepreneurial side of Spivak. In 2010, he founded What Now Atlanta, which quickly carved out a big presence and readership tracking restaurant and retail openings and closings. David Atlanta put him in the spotlight and Creative Loafing profiled him and his journalism pursuit.

But the acting bug bit Spivak early. Via his IMDB profile:

American actor, model, and entrepreneur Caleb J. Spivak was born in Upper Heyford, Oxfordshire, England to Air Force veterans Mark Ian and Lisa Hay Spivak. Caleb and his older brother Joshua Aaron Spivak could often be spotted sharing the stage at early ages, performing alongside in Theatres wherever the military took his family including in Italy and New York. In 2007, Caleb moved to Atlanta and attended Georgia State University pursuing a degree in Theatre, and dropped out when his company What Now Atlanta was acquired. The burgeoning Hollywood scene in the South afforded Caleb the opportunity to pursue acting for film and television simultaneously. He began studying the Meisner Technique in early 2015 with actor Erin Elizabeth Burns, known for her role in Stephen King's Cell, and later that year booked his first television role as Harvey Robinson in Investigation Discovery's Your Worst Nightmare.
