An Epic Hunk of the Day: Philip Fusco

phil fusco 001

After being unblissfully unaware of Philip Fusco, this blog has certainly made up for it in the last week, culminating with today’s official crowning of Mr. Fusco as Hunk of the Day. Earlier, you got to see his very first pictorial here, and a couple of days later he was the face (and more notably the body) of a weekly recap. Based on the reactions, he may be the next David Beckham or Tom Daley of these parts, with his very own Category. (Lest anyone think we’re going overboard too soon, he’s nowhere near Madonna territory, so relax.) As for this post, here’s to the first of the Fusco Hunk features – there likely will be more.

Hunk of the Day: Lance Parker – Once Bitten, Twice Guy

Lance Parker 1

The title of this post refers to the fact that this marks Lance Parker’s second appearance as Hunk of the Day. That’s a rare honor, but Mr. Parker appears worthy of the second coronation. Those tan lines are worth a second look too. (I credit Tom Ford and Paul Richmond equally for my love of a good tan line.)

Hunk of the Day: Michael Turchin

Lance Bass recently posted an Instagram video of his fiancé’s bare-butt, a surprise shower attack that would have ended up in murder in my house, but one that’s fun to watch when it’s a cute celebrity. In this case, it was Hunk of the Day Michael Turchin’s tush that was on perky display. It’s always a joy to see couples having some cheeky fun, and Lance has had his share of fun-coupling. As for Mr. Turchin, he looks great in these Timoteo shots, and he should totally do more of them.

Hunk of the Day: Bryan Hawn

The Hunk of the Day returns, in a most banging way. As the accompanying song below proclaims, it’s all about that ass, ass, ass, ass, ass… and proof of this is in today’s hunk, Bryan Hawn. A fitness guru and YouTube viral sensation, Mr. Hawn has made a splash with his bootylicious parodies of songs by Beyonce and Katy Perry – all of which feature his voluptuous assets. The photos here give a clear indication as to his selling-point, and it’s clearly below. Enjoy the booty-shaking antics and see if you don’t inject a few more squats into your work-out routine.

I’m all about that bass, bout that bass, no treble. I’m all about that bass

Hunk of the Day: Charlie King

charlie king 100

In this month of National Coming Out Day (see me in 1997) we honor Charlie King as Hunk of the Day. Mr. King recently vacated the closet, an action that gets less and less noteworthy as we advance beyond antiquated notions of sexual orientation. We’re here, we’re queer, what’s the big deal?

Hunk of the Day: Nick Carter

nick carter thong1

Ah, the Backstreet Boys. Allow me, if you will, a moment to go back to the late nineties, at the turn of the ‘Millennium’ (that epic album of theirs that contained the classic ‘I Want It That Way.’ What they wanted and in what way they wanted it will ever be a mystery to us, but at that time it didn’t matter. All that mattered was Nick Carter’s blond mop mopping up the pop charts and hysterical tween girls (and a couple of gay guys) ate it all up.

A confession: I had a ‘Backstreet Boys’ planner calendar. Oh, stop. I also had an ‘N Sync one, so if you’re going to judge me, judge me for that. We all have those moments, and while our Hunk of the Day Nick Carter was the popular front-man for the group, it was his band-mate Kevin Richardson that stole the show for me. I don’t suppose that’s nice to say since we’re honoring Mr. Carter today, so I’ll leave it at that.

As for the latter, he currently has a VH1 show airing, from which the first few photos are taken. I’m sure there’s a good reason for running around in a thong like that, but I prefer the last two photos, taken after he got in shape a few years ago.

Hunk of the Day: James Rodriguez

james rodriguez 100

The equation goes something like this: European football = American soccer. Who knows if that’s correct, but the balls look the same. Well, almost all of them anyway. This is Hunk of the Day James Rodriguez, a (European) soccer player for Real Madrid. And underwear model. That last part is the important part for these parts. Check him out modeling for Brozini underwear.

Hunk of the Day: John Carroll

john carroll by kevin mcdermott 0

This blog has always loved a Renaissance Man. Case in point is our Hunk of the Day, Juilliard graduate John Carroll. A Broadway triple threat who has performed in Wicked, Follies, and A Chorus Line, Mr. Carroll is also an openly-gay activist, writer, and model. (Sorry boys and girls, he is happily married too.) Here he is captured by the amazing Kevin McDermott in a scorching example of what happens when a talented photographer meets an inspiring muse.

The results are not only sexy, but moving and inspirational as well. There is something both beautiful and spiritual about them, as much due to Mr. McDermott’s artistic eye as to Mr. Carroll’s studied stance and expression. They are undeniable proof that male nudity can be an art form.

Hunk of the Day: Jeremy Jordan

jeremy jordan 101

The Hunks of the Day have been on a Broadway high-kick bender of late, with the likes of John Carroll, Brandon Rubendall, and now Jeremy Jordan. I recently had the privilege of checking out the pre-Broadway run of ‘Finding Neverland’ in which Mr. Jordan plays the lead. The musical, directed by the great Diane Paulus of ‘Pippin’ renown, had several riveting moments and is headed for Broadway next year. Mr. Jordan also led the troop of ‘Newsies’ on Broadway and played a part in the television show ‘Smash.’

PS: He does one super-exciting version of Elsa and throws some tongue-in-cheek shade on Jonathan Groff in the process.

But he’s just as exciting posing for naked pics too…

Hunk of the Day: Jackson Lombardi

Jackson Lombardi 101

Hunk of the Day requests and/or recommendations have always been welcomed here, and the reasons why can be seen in this post. Jackson Lombardi is the Hunk of the Day, a request from a FaceBook friend who pointed out the wonder of Mr. Lombardi in this photo shoot for Marcuse. Had it not been for the heads-up, so to speak, I would never have found the object of this delectable spread. In other words, please keep the Hunk of the Day proposals coming. I aim to please.

Hunk of the Day: Ben Affleck

14 ben affleck 101

When news of Ben Affleck’s full-frontal shot from ‘Gone Girl’ hit the web, the world went a little crazy. Given that it’s a David Fincher film, I don’t expect it to be sexy or well-lit, but a little Ben is better than no Ben at all. In honor of Affleck’s penis, he is hereby crowned Hunk of the Day. He’s one of those guys who has been hot for so long he’s almost taken for granted. (See Brad Pitt or Ben’s own buddy Matt Damon.)

Hunk of the Day: David Terzian

David Terzian0

Sometimes you don’t have to do much to make a big impact.

Sometimes you don’t have to move mountains or change the world.

Sometimes you just have to stand still and look beautiful and the world changes for you.

Sometimes the Hunk of the Day, as in the case of David Terzian, can be a mirror for whatever you want or need to see. That’s the point of a male model, reflecting light and dark, joy and pain, pleasure and masochism - and all in such wondrous poses.

The audience is left to make its own decisions and judgments.” ~ Madonna

Hunk of the Day: Colin Brazeau

Colin Jerel Brazeau0

This is one special Hunk of the Day, not solely for purposes of beauty and physical attraction, but in education and well-roundedness. (He plays the viola – and quite well.) Colin Brazeau is a student working on his B.A. in Communication Studies with a certificate in Classical Viola Music Performance and a focus in French Language and Literature at Northwestern University. How many of us have done even one of those things? Even more impressive is his LinkedIn profile, in which his pursuits are expounded thusly:

His overall program of research focuses on the impact that the new wave of Online Social Media has had on adolescent social behavior. More specifically he examines the changes in levels of narcissism, co-dependency, and overall self-image with increased Social Networking Site usage.

Finally, someone who’s studying something with relevance to today’s world. I can’t wait to see what his research uncovers.

Hunk of the Day: Brenton Thwaites

Brenton Thwaites

You know what makes me feel old? The fact that the Hunk of the Day, Brenton Thwaites, was born AFTER Madonna released ‘Like A Prayer.’ That’s a gut-wrenching check-in with Father Freaking Time. Anyway, here’s the offending youngster, frolicking on a beach sans shirt, as all handsome young guys should do. Somebody cue ‘If I Could Turn Back Time’ – oh wait, she just canceled her concert again. Nevermind. We’re all getting old. One day Mr. Thwaites will be here too. Let’s hope he enjoys the ride beforehand. (By the way, did you realize that that was my very first Cher reference on this blog? Like, ever. Let it sink in.)

Hunk of the Day: Michael Hoffman

Mike Hoffman101

Much ado has been made over this gentleman’s recent ‘leaking’ (literally) of several racy videos. Apparently he’s a popular Instagram bodybuilder who up until now had only teased at nudity. Of course, I only heard about him when his videos hit the web and the nudity embargo was broken, so here is Hunk of the Day Michael Hoffman. Whether or not the leaking was intentional (a properly-timed sex tape can do wonders for the career) or accidental, there’s nothing much to be ashamed about with a figure like that of Mr. Hoffman. Though I won’t show you all the bits and explosions that are already out there, this should give you a indication of why he’s been so popular.

In our selfie-obsessed day and age, where exhibitionism is rampant, you can’t fault Mr. Hoffman for putting it all out there. For every exhibitionist willing to be brave, there are a hundred trolls hidden behind anonymous names and no-faces waiting to rip us to shreds. So I say to Mr. Hoffman, rock on, and rock out…

UPDATE: Michael Hoffman wants the world to know he is not gay, despite what those videos show. As is often the case, it’s so much better when they don’t speak. See below…
