Donnie Davies = Todd Quillen?
UPDATE: The "real" Davies exposed: HERE.
After an almost 48-hour run of speculation that has gripped the gay blogosphere, tenacious and smart JMG reader "Chrome" (a frequent commenter here), wrote to me early this morning with his conclusion that "Ex-gay" Pastor Donnie Davies is actually actor/musician/improv performer Todd Quillen. Quillen's personal site is here, his Yahoo photo album is here.
By cross-referencing the MySpace pages of Donnie Davies and his band Evening Service, Chrome began to find an interesting commonality among the friends of the "friends" of Davies and his band, namely an interest in film, television, acting, and most telling: improv. There appears to be a relationship to the improvisational acting group B.R.O.T.O.R.
What do you think, gentle readers? Has Chrome busted Donnie Davies? I believe he may have. If you believe otherwise and have proof, please email me.
UPDATE: Other bloggers wondering: Bob Mould, Dan Savage, Pam's House Blend, Queerty, Towleroad, Good As You, Blast Off.
UPDATE II: Still no further proof either way, but the chorus of "doesn't look like him" continues to grow louder. I called Quillen's agent in LA and asked for a callback, but haven't gotten one.
UPDATE III: An email sent to by Donnie Davies to JMG reader Big Ass Belle carries an IP (10.49.41.18) that resolves to Marina Del Rey, California. Donnie Davies claims to live in Texas.
UPDATE IV: Ignore Update III. I know bupkis about IP technology.
