Carlos “Spanky” Hayes is best known for his appearance on the Nick Cannon show Wild’N Out, but now he is turning whistleblower against what he claims is Hollywood’s seedy casting practices.
Hayes recounted his reading for a role in the 2001 movie Baby Boy, saying he was competing with one other actor for his role (he did not say which part). Hayes claimed that a male producer offered the role to whichever actor was willing to exchange sexual favors.
In a report posted on MediaTakeOut, Hayes said:
“We both sit down and the [producer] goes, ‘I love both of you guys, both of you are talented. But which one of you guys is gonna s**k my c**k.”
“I busted out laughing because a m*thaf*cka ain’t never talk to me like that. And what f*cked me up though is that other dude wasn’t laughing…. And I looked at both of them, and was like aww hell naw. And to keep it real, he got the leading role…. BABY BOY.”
Hayes went on to relay some more sordid Hollywood details, saying he showed up to a popular actor’s house to find some naked shenanigans.
“I’m sure every man in [this room] has been to his house, but probably ain’t never seen what I saw. And they were playing butt nekkid basketball… and I ain’t gonna say nothing else…”
The report went on to question whether the accounts were true or simply Spanky Hayes telling humorous stories. His work has been mostly in comedy, though his resume is relatively light. Aside from his stint on Wild’N Out, Hayes has only made scattered appearances in television and movies, most recently in the movie School Dance, which was written and directed by Nick Cannon.
The allegations from Spanky Hayes would certainly not be new for Hollywood, where stories of young actors and actresses proving themselves on the “casting couch” in order to get roles have been around for decades.
