Meet the actor from the Daddyhunt series

BJ Gruber: The man of many talents.

Published

I came across BJ Gruber watching his successful YouTube series called the Queens Project and the short film on YouTube called Daddyhunt: The Serial. BJ always plays a diverse range of characters and he is a man of many talents. He was kind enough to answer a few questions for me about his life on screen.

I found your web series on YouTube the Queens Project and from the first episode I was hooked. So I see that season three was funded on Indiegogo. Where would you like to see this series go?

My dream for the series is to have a syndicated television show. That’d make me pretty ecstatic. Season 3 is really amazing and it is set for release this summer. Ken, Ra-ey, and I edited it together.

I also found you on Daddyhunt: the Serial, which has over 2.5 million views on YouTube. You play a guy that just moved into an apartment and you think the hot daddy down the hall is the handyman. Then some heartache and romance happens. Are you dating anyone?

I am dating someone.

I had a look at your resume and wow, you have some skills in dance, ballet, tap and hip hop, and you speak German, know hand to hand and knife and sword. Where did you learn all of these?

School. I got a degree in Theatre & dance and used that time to learn new skills.

I see you are also a gamer. Can you tell us a little about who BJ Gruber is?

Sure! I grew up in Richmond, Virginia and went to James Madison University. I moved to New York City six years ago and have worked in theaters all over the nation. I also work in film, tv, commercial, and print pretty regularly. I’ve also been writing, filming, and editing my own content. Check out my YouTube channel! I’ll have some new films out soon.

What is next for you on the horizon?

I’m writing, editing, and shooting some short films myself that are all about shared human experiences. So be on the lookout for those on my Instagram and YouTube channel!

Thank you for stopping by, be sure to catch BJ Gruber on Season 3 of the Queens Project and DaddyHunt 3. Also, be sure to follow him on Instagram , subscribe to him on YouTube to find out the latest project he has been working on and you can always check out his website .

“How did it go with your family?” asked Sandra, handing Kellen a mug of tea. “Did she like the earrings?”

“Yes – total winner!” nodded Kellen. “We had the birthday drinks at a new cocktail bar in town. I had a Joe Calzaghe – delicious. It was a good couple of days, although we had to work hard not to talk about politics.”

“You watched the no-confidence vote?” asked Sandra.

“Obviously…” confirmed Kellen. “But, you know how Wales voted for Leave.”

“Don’t tell me that your family voted to Leave!” gasped Sandra.

“We’ve adopted a don’t-ask-don’t-tell policy on it…” explained Kellen. “We had to agree a safe-word. Anytime that Brexit started to rear its head in a conversation, shouting out – Gaga! – meant that we had to change the subject and talk about something else.”

“Why is your safe-word always Gaga!” laughed Sandra. “You’re so gay!”

“I’m going to take that as a compliment…” dismissed Kellen.

“Anyway, you’re lucky that you weren’t run over by Prince Philip!” said Sandra. “That was out your way, wasn’t it?”

“You do realise that Sandringham is not in Wales…” replied Kellen. “In fact, it’s pretty much the opposite side of the country to where I was.”

“Is it?” asked Sandra. “Are you sure? I kind of thought it was all in the same general direction. To be honest, anything beyond the M25 is a bit of a mystery to me. In my head, the UK is pretty much made up of London and then there’s not-London.”

“I’m pretty sure this is why 52 percent of the country voted to Leave the EU…” sighed Kellen. “Just to remind everyone in London that they still exist.”

“Anyway, what is Prince Philip doing driving around in the middle of nowhere?” asked Sandra. “Doesn’t he have a driver? If I was a prince I’d definitely have a driver. Is Kate Middleton driving herself around? Is Meghan Markle driving herself around? Well, Meghan probably is, but you get my point. Prince Philip is 97 years old!”

“I guess he just wanted to be a bit independent…” shrugged Kellen. “But this probably will put an end to his driving days. What are your plans for the weekend? Are you seeing flower-market-guy?”

“He’s taking me away for a romantic mini-break…” grinned Sandra. “Just me and him… romantic… mini-break.”

“Shut up!” exclaimed Kellen. “That’s awesome! Where’s he taking you?”

“It’s a surprise…” replied Sandra. “Although I’m pretty sure it’s going to be Paris. I’ve never been to Paris, and I keep dropping hints about Paris, and how romantic it would be to go to Paris.”

“How have you never been to Paris?” asked Kellen.

“This morning he sent me a text, saying – Bonjour…” continued Sandra, ignoring Kellen’s question. “So, at lunchtime, I went out and bought a beret.”

“Where did you find a beret?” asked Kellen.

“Strangely enough, they had some at Poundland…” shrugged Sandra. “I guess they’re clearing out anything that’s vaguely European.”

“I’m pretty sure that’s not how Brexit is going to work…” said Kellen. “It’s not going to become illegal to wear a beret.”

“You say that, but no one really knows for sure…” insisted Sandra. “Iceland have got packets of French Onion Soup on sale.”

“Gaga!” said Kellen firmly. “This is definitely a safe-word scenario. I call Gaga!”

This is the latest episode of the serial, Hoxton Street.
