When Rodiney Santiago takes off his shirt, we pay attention. We’re super gay like that. But when the Atlanta-loving gay Brazilian underwear model and reality star doffs his shirt for a movie, we grab our keyboards to make sure that you’re fully up to date.

Santiago needs your help to see more of him, and something tells us fans will be able to get on board with that idea. It seems like only yesterday that Santiago was a sexy naked homewreckerin the “Scenes from a Gay Marriage” sequel. Now Southern writer-director-actor Matt Riddlehoover is mining the stud’s talents – as well as those of other gay Atlanta-connected hotties – for his next project.

The movie'sIndiegogopage pimps Santiago for crowdfunding donations to help make “Paternity Leave” happen. Santiago makes a personal, shirtless appeal as part of the pitch. The brief video above includes his plea as well as a rundown of the full cast. It is followed immediately by teasers for other Riddlehoover projects.

"Paternity Leave" tells the story of a man who becomes pregnant. In addition to Santiago, it stars Charlie David, the Out on Film darling who went from “Dante’s Cove” on TV to movies like gay features “Judas Kiss” and “Mulligans.”Drool-worthy actor Chris Salvatore of “Eating Out” fame, and Atlanta’s own Jacob York, who was a key reason to see Topher Payne’s “Angry Fags”last year, are also in the cast.
