My recent nonstop bunge on Criminal Minds has definitely left me with a fixation for this hottie.
Granted, I haven’t seen this model turned actor flex his thespian chops in much else, he catches all my attention in Criminal Minds. Look at those abs.
Anyway, seems like most Criminals Minds fans have a softspot for Mr. Matthew Gray Gubler, and he’s not ugly either:
And he’s an easy crush, slim, awkward, oddly handsome, wacky hairdo, storylines that make you want to give him a big ole hug (from his early seasons struggles with his upbringing, with relating more to the unsubs than his coworkers, with not being able to pass the firearms test, to his PTSD/repressed memories in Las Vegas, his abandonment issues, SO MANY ISSUES) he’s always the one who has to talk the unstable off the ledge and if I was there I’d give him a big hug and cry my eyes out on the jet home. But I have a Whovian crush who fits that bill.
Derek Morgan gets to knock out brutes and steps up to lead the team when Hotch can’t. He also flirts with Penelope Garcia… a lot. He has some emotional plotlines as well but not with multiple episode story arcs like MGG, Prentiss, Elle, Rossi and Hotch. (Maybe he does in later seasons, let me know if I’m speaking too soon, I only catch the first run here and there)
BONUS: comic book connection
Shemar Moore voiced Cyborg in Justice League War …put him in the JLA movie, DC. he definitely spruces up the place.
Ink Master is one of those shows I always seem to catch repeats of while I am on my lunch break. Somehow Ink Master Season One captured my attention briefly away from X-Files. Mostly because of this guy:
And his rivalry with fellow contestant Shane O’neill. The two finalists hurled insults. The tore up each others work. They bragged and boasted, but they always could back it up. The rivalry between the two was unmatched by any other contestants. They argued like feuding siblings, but hardly found it worth fucking with the other contestants. Underneath the venomous words in their big talk they showed a lot of mutual respect.
look at him, looking like a badass James Bond
And that’s true class.
For the Season 1 finale, there was a surprise client for him to tattoo. He got a beautiful blonde woman and he turned to her and said “Well, this is a pleasant surprise” with swagger and unparalleled confidence. He nailed the tattoo.
But Shane was dubbed the Ink Master with Tommy standing by his side in second place.
And we’re talking about a contest where $100,000 dollars is on the line. Where fame and fortune are the prizes.
But when it came down to it he shook Shane’s hand and congratulated him.
No whining, no bitterness, no excuses and no bullshit.
check out http://artbytommy.com/ for his amazing work.
PS- He did win fame and fortune (although not the grand prize): he got his own show “Tattoo Nightmares” about covering up bad tattoos which has been going strong for 4 seasons.
This should have been Tom Mison. @outofmyplanet reminded me it’s still about 150 days til Sleepy Hollow returns and I wanted to do it up right for our favorite fake founding father. But he doesn’t take his shirt off nearly enough. So here’s one:
So there you go, and now to today’s feature: Karl Urban. I am so terribly bummed that Almost Human was cancelled, but maybe the free time means he’ll be able to get cracking on Dredd 2.
Kick it old school with a blonde Urban in the Xena days
You know you’re fine if you can rock that stupid hair ‘do.
Warrior mode gain in 2007’s Pathfinder
I don’t know what’s happening in either of those and I don’t even care at all.
Look at that face.
With major roles in films from Lord of the Rings to Doom, Star Trek to Dredd I’m sure the 41 year old New Zealander won’t be hurting for work. He’ll be gracing big screens again in August for the thriller The Loft along side Rhona Mitra (Skinwalkers), Prison Break‘s Wentworth Miller and James Marsden (who I crushed hard on after 1998’s Disturbing Behavior and more recently played Scott Summers in X-Men and X-Men 2)
Damn you, Karl Urban. Take your shirt off more!
“Grrl, are you posting Man Candy Monday on a Tuesday?!”
Who cares, Jensen Ackles’s abs are here.
I know, Jensen, I am so clever and funny.
Anyway, Jensen has been keeping fans entertained as Dean Winchester on the CW’s Supernatural for the past 9 years. The demon hunting Winchester brothers fall under the category of whiny white misunderstood male protagonists and the plot is accelerated by the fridging of female after female for more angst and has gotten more and more predictable (come on, which one is ending up in which version of the afterlife this time? Probably Dean, Dean’s gotta save Sam, something about Castiel’s wonky powers. Something something King of Hell. Time travel. Our dad lied to us. Blah) and dialogue is laden with homophobic gay jokes.
But you don’t care what they’re saying, do you?
His TV brother is pretty good, too.
Sadly, this show has too many shirts
But he looks pretty good in clothes, too.
Other roles include voice acting role of the Red Hood in 2010’s Batman: Under the Red Hood. 2009’s My Bloody Valentine and way back in 2001, he played Jessica Alba’s bio engineered brother on Dark Angel (which was a very clever show and should have had the longevity that Supernatural has).
This weeks pick was undeniable. I was binge watching The Guild when I laid eyes on this Taiwanese hottie.
He’s done stunts, acting on big screens and small and voice acting. Nerd credits include: Iron Man 3, Crossing Jordan, Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings (video game), Heroes, Star Trek: Enterprise and the upcoming Transcendence with Johnny Depp.
Anyway, his character in the guild is charming and zany. Dashing and exciting. He gets attention from the RPG fans when he mentions that he did the motion animation for the game that they love. And really that there is the whole package. A practical use for martial arts if I ever heard one.
and good abs.
He definitely needs more screen time. ON ALL SCREENS EVERYWHERE
Do I even need to say anything about this?
Chris Evans has been in some TERRIBLE flicks from his first (2) superhero go arounds as the Human Torch in 2005’s Fantastic Four and the subsequent sequel to the less than stellar Cellular. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is unstoppable, but the movie that started it all, Captain America, was a near flop.. even with this week’s cinematic release of Captain America: the Winter Soldier; the previews have focused on equal parts Cap, special effects and Natalia Romanova. Having Black Widow show up because they weren’t sure that he could carry a movie on his own even with the MCU steamroller? epic girl power. ..sort of. But this isn’t about that. It’s about how awesome Chris Evans looks.
What is even going to there? I don;t know.
Best known for his roles in Barbershop and Seven Pounds, Michael Ealy came to my attention in the STILL NOT OFFICIALLY RENEWED SERIES “ALMOST HUMAN”… sorry for the caps, I’m panicking a little bit. He also had recurring roles on “The Good Wife” and “Californication”
But, like I said, he caught my eye as the “disco-faced” sometimes unstable DRN police robot, Dorian.
Although the plot revolved largely around Karl Urban’s character, John Kennex, Dorian added much needed humor -usually at John’s expense. He also had some deep plotlines himself, compassion for other DRN models, increasing aggravation that he’s the only DRN in the field and can’t relate to MXs, evolving to be a better police officer, a better partner..
But we aren’t here to talk about what a great character Dorian is, or what Michael Ealy added to the role (great delivery, sometimes a musical interlude, acting like a robot that acts like a human)… we’re here to look at Michael Ealy:
And just for good measure, suited up:
Ealy is appearing next in Think Like A Man, Too and then hopefully reprising his role as Dorian! Because I neeed him on my TV screen.
Funfact: He also played a detective in 2012’s Underworld:Awakening
And I don’t know why exactly, but this picture is so cute
The latest actor to take on the role of Peter Parker, Andrew Garfield, is incredibly handsome. The babyfaced 30-year-old can pull of hipster cool, mature suited style as well as the flashy fitted spandex Spidey-suit. Or no shirt. No shirt is good, too.
Look at those buns!
Look at that hair!
But Andrew’s more than just a pretty face, co-star (and girlfriend) Emma Stone take the opportunity to use annoying run ins with the paparazzi to shout out their favorite charities instead of doing something flashy or rude:
AND the entire cast of Amazing Spiderman 2 are leading the Earth Day 2014 celebration. Good looking people who are concerned about the environment and use their privilege to benefit others? I dig it.
I don’t know how well this will go over, I’m not sure how much of my readership is into some Man Candy. BUT: In a giant step for gender equality, Time Wants A Skeleton has decided to celebrate beauty and “compliment” the male physical form.
Today’s lucky dude? Chris Pratt
My jaw dropped when I saw the recently released trailer. I was already excited for it but Chris Pratt’s abs got me more hyped. Chris Pratt has waffled between being super-fit (also in Zero Dark Thirty) and adorably chubby (Andy Dwyer on Parks and Recreation) and either is fine, but he’d probably make more than $40 stripping right now.
And check out this video where he shows off his dance moves and shares his fitness secrets:
Chris Pratt is a hip-hop abs maniac
Chris Pratt is rumored to be hitting the screen for Jurassic World (the 4th installation of the Jurassic Park franchise) and the film reboot of Knight Rider.
Check out Pratt suited up at a pre-Oscar Party with wife Anna Faris
Bonus Content: Speaking of the Oscars (and photos) Lupita Nyong’o’s little brother got right up in the A-Listers selfie. And he looked good there. Dude’s an 11, someone put him in a movie.
Cruise his instagram for more Oscars awesomeness and proof he’s the best little brother ever. He’s just dashing.
