Meet the Cast of The A-List: Dallas

The Logo Network announced the cast of The A-List: Dallas today.  Let me just start by saying that I have not seen the original series The A-List: New York that this is spinning off from. But the casting is sending up huge flares of what we can expect. The show will follow 5 gay men and one token girl (why, I have no clue) around town and exploit give you an inside peak at life in the fast lane on Cedar Springs and beyond as they look for love in the city of Big D.

Meet the cast of The A-List: Dallas

 Beau Bumpas (Age 31) 
Occupation - Photographer

  He's the kind of gay every straight girl wishes she had in her life and I am so lucky to call him a personal friend of mine.  The self-proclaimed ‘king of social networking’ knows everyone (and everyone’s business) in town and has made himself a key figure in Dallas nightlife.  He photographs every see-and-be-seen event in town and his work is magnificent.

Chase Hutchinson (Age 27) 
  Occupation: Real Estate/Equity Investments

A "snobby pompous asshole" blogger.  (His words about himself - not mine.)  He describes himself as a gay ex-Christian Fundamentalist financial broker living in Dallas.  The Logo Network says of him, "Chase has it all: A great career in finance, an amazing home, good friends and he’s left a string of broken hearts behind him. Chase is highly motivated (he’s renovating his home himself), is a serial dater looking for Mr. Right, and is at the top of his game in the career department."

 James Doyle Age 22 
Occupation: Trust Fund Baby

His Facebook profile says he's employed by the U.S. Air Force. He says one of his favorite quotes is, "According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with 4 arms, 4 legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves. Where's mine?"  Aw, he's a little lost puppy dog, looking for love.  A friend says of him, "He is SO hot and never one to hold back. VERY cool." So, there you go, he's just been dubbed the show's bad boy.

Levi Crocker (Age 26)
Occupation: Former Rodeo Star/Fashion Designer

 Aw, jeez. Just because it's Texas, they just had to cast a gay Cowboy. A Google search of his name will also tell you that he was recently been arrested and issued a DUILevi made a name for himself as a rodeo star until he was sidelined by an injury. Now this Stetson-wearing stud helps run his family’s ranch and has teamed up with friends to launch a line of sexy, swimwear targeted at gay men.
 What a hunk of burnin' love this one is...  

 Phillip (Age 23) 
Occupation: Entrepreneur/Socialite
“Phillip is a Dallas native who knows the city (and everyone’s business) like the back of his hand. It’s a good idea to be on Phillip’s good side; if you’ve got skeletons in his closet–he knows about them. Phillip may be the life of the party, but in his personal life he’s a sensitive, caring guy who wants nothing more than to fall in love.”

And finally, we have our token "fag hag" Ashley Kelly (Age: 25) 
Occupation: Photographer/Model/Cheerleading Coach
Hometown: Belton, TX – Like birds of a feather that flock together, the gays of Dallas flock to Ashley Kelly. This Dallas beauty has a big smile and miles of attitude. Ashley is caught between two vastly different worlds: The strict conservative world of her family and her other family – the A-List gays of Dallas.  Like, oh my God, she will be so... cliche.

The A-List: Dallas will film over the next 3-4 months and air this Fall on the Logo Network.
