Hunk of the Day: Andrea Denver

Andrea Denver 101

Madonna’s getting quite a bit out of Instagram these days, including a possible date. She posted a shirtless photo of Hunk of the Day Andrea Denver on her account and suddenly Mr. Denver responded with some interest of his own. I always knew that Madonna probably didn’t have as much difficulty asking people out as much as the rest of us mere mortals, and this is further evidence of that. In addition to what is clearly a potent modeling career, Andrea has also appeared in videos by Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez. Here’s hoping we get to see much more of him in, say, ‘Bitch I’m Madonna.’

Hunk of the Day: Chris Arno Wiliams

Christian Arno Williams 100

Being on the same list as Adam Levine, Zac Efron, James Franco, Orlando Bloom, Ashton Kutcher, Justin Timberlake and Jamie Dornan would initially appear to be one of the coolest things in the world, but if that list happens to be of the men who have gotten sexy with fire-crotch Lindsay Lohan, it’s probably a different story. Such is the case with the Hunk of the Day, Chris Arno Williams, who, according to reports, can now add his name to that illustrious list of Lohan-lovers. Whatever, I’m getting cheese fries.

A Very Hunky Sunday

051taylor kinney 003

By the time this gets posted, I’ll hopefully be winding up a weekend in Cape Cod, during which I’ll have celebrated my friend JoAnn’s birthday. In order to escape, I’m pre-programming these posts so as to give myself some time away. There are a few busy months coming up as I prepare a new project, so this sort of auto-pilot post may be more prevalent than usual. (Special Guest Bloggers are still welcome to submit items! In fact, they are encouraged…)

In the meantime, there shouldn’t be too many people who complain about posts like this, particularly when guys like Taylor Kinney pull their pants down this far. He was a Hunk of the Day a while back, but these photos weren’t uncovered until a later date.

Jonathan Groff of ‘Glee’ and ‘Looking’ fame (and ‘Spring Awakening’ birth for those of us obsessed with Broadway) is proof that the best hunks are those who exude talent as well as beauty.

Matthew Camp is one of those multi-faceted hunks who wears several hats, and happily not much else. He’s been here a number of times, celebrating his fragrance as well as his Hunk crowning.

Last but not least is the increasingly nude Ashley Parker Angel, who never met a mirror his Instagram didn’t like.

Hunk of the Day: Ryan Guzman

You’ve got to be pretty hot to make Jennifer Lopez fall for you in spite of your onscreen under-age-ness, and Ryan Guzman seems to fit the bill (if not his shirt). He’s the Hunk of the Day, and there’s nothing else to say.

Hunk of the Day: Jakub Stefano

jakub stefano 101

Hailing from the Czech Republic, this male model is our Hunk of the Day. Jakub Stefano has worked with such photographic luminaries as Lewis Payton, Mark Lynch and Dylan Rosser. Those guys know how to capture beauty, and Mr. Stefano knows how to give good face. And good ass, as these pictures will attest.

This post continues a string of male model Hunks, starting with this guy, and most recently this guy. Who do you want to see next? Requests are always entertained.

Hunk of the Day: Lucas Bernardini

lucas bernardini 101

It pains me to say this, but the Hunk of the Day, Lucas Bernardini, was born the same year that Madonna’s ‘Truth or Dare’ was released. I was sixteen years old. It was 1991. And Lucas was just being born. Oh time, you always win. But for now, Mr. Bernardini has the upper hand, because beauty is timeless. From San Paulo, Brazil to New York City, Bernardini has already made a splash on the modeling scene in just about two years. Good thing, because male models have to make their mark and money quickly. According to one portfolio, “he enjoys surfing, running, doing yoga, and meditating in Central Park.”

Hunk of the Day: Erasmo Viana

Erasmo Viana 101

Brazilian male model Erasmo Viana has the name of a star and the body to go with it. Burning brighter than most of us mere mortals could even attempt to match, he reaches that unattainable perfection that male models exude with such assumed ease. No further need to mar the scene with my words. Feast your eyes upon our Hunk of the Day, Erasmo Viana.

Hunk of the Day: Bright Light Bright Light

rod thomas 100

If he wasn’t chosen as Hunk of the Day for all his cuteness, he’d have been selected for his showbiz name. This is Bright Light, Bright Light – an electronic musician currently taking the world by storm. His website sums it up in this epic introduction:

Bright Light Bright Light is the moniker of Welsh born, London/New York based Rod Thomas who released his debut album ‘Make Me Believe In Hope’ in 2012 year to rave reviews. Starting out as a busker on the London Underground, where he cut his teeth and was first noticed by Q Magazine, Rod has gone on quite a journey.

Honing his skills over the years, and evolving from busker to “the boy Robyn in all but name” according to NME, Rod is performer, songwriter, producer and DJ. His debut record was put together with Boom Bip (Neon Neon), Andy Chatterley (Kylie, Nerina Pallot), The Invisible Men (Jessie J, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea). Hailed by Sunday Times Culture as “a songwriter of extraordinary dexterity”, by Elton John as the hottest new thing in music, and ending up at no.4 in the Guardian Reader’s Albums of 2012 poll, it’s clear that ‘Make Me Believe In Hope’s sparkling electro-pop won the heart of journalists and fans alike since its release.

Not to mention the hearts of artists. Rod went on tour opening for Ellie Goulding, Erasure and Scissor Sisters on their sold-out UK tour. Pet Shop Boys themselves praised his cover of ‘West End Girls’ recorded with Scissor Sister Ana Matronic for US charity Hetrick-Martin. Other Sister Del Marquis brought him into his solo project Slow Knights as key songwriter and vocalist in the live shows. And, unbelievably to Rod, Elton John loved his work so much he joined Rod on duet ‘I Wish We Were Leaving’ which features on second album ‘Life Is Easy’, and signed him up as the support act for his UK and European dates in June and July of 2014 just as ‘Life Is Easy’ hits stores.

As a remixer, his Kelis, Ellie Goulding Erasure, VV Brown mixes and his series of bootlegs have hit blogs and clubs. He made DJ mixes for Ministry Of Sound, Butt Magazine, fashion brands and magazines, DJd at Glastonbury, Bestival, Festival no.6, numerous Pride events, and runs successful London 90s clubnight ‘Another Night’ in Dalston’s Vogue Fabrics.

In the US, he played a string of sold-out Bright Light Bright Light shows, appeared in New York Magazine’s Approval Matrix, was Time Out NY’s critics’ pick on multiple occasions, was highlighted by Billboard Magazine as a “bubbling under” artist to watch and was picked ‘Song Of The Week by USA Today for his duet with Elton John which also scored him his first Triple A radio add and #4 most added at RPM College Radio.

From ‘Life Is Easy’, Radio 1 have already supported ‘In Your Care’, ‘An Open Heart’ and ‘I Wish We Were Leaving’ on the Introducing show. ‘I Wish We Were Leaving’ also saw his break into Radio 2 with Graham Norton playing the track two weeks in a row. ‘I Believe’ also scored Norton support in the build up to the album’s release.

While life may not always be easy, Rod’s transition from busker to beatmaker – with a loving and ever-growing fanbase – demonstrates that, with hard work and the right attitude, you can achieve great things.

Hunk of the Day: Will Arnett

will arnett shirtless

More often than not, funny is sexy. Living, and hysterical, proof of this comes in the form of Will Arnett. (Anyone who was married to Amy Poehler knows what it means to be funny.) Mr. Arnett is often seen in supporting comedic roles, but I think it’s time he heads up a few ships of his own. These carwash shots alone are enough to jumpstart the dreariest day. Congrats on this latest Hunk of the Day honor, which I’m sure he’ll cherish more than any Oscar or Emmy in his future.

Hunk of the Day: David W. Ross

david ross

Anyone who’s survived being in a boy band and gone on to make something of their life has my admiration. David W. Ross did just that, and is now one of the most compelling Hunks of the Day we’ve featured here. For two decades he’s made a career in entertainment, and that sort of longevity and relevance is rare in such a fickle world. More important to me is what he’s done as a filmmaker, tackling subjects like marriage equality in ways both artistic and meaningful.

Here’s the impressive bio from his website:

UK born David W Ross is a multi-talented award winning actor, writer, musician and film producer whose experience spans over two decades in the international entertainment world.

David first entered the public eye as a teen idol from British boy-band sensation Bad Boys, Inc.: the group released one self-titled album, which spawned five hit singles, including the Top 10 smash, “More to this World.”

David is better known to American moviegoers as a featured star of the acclaimed 2006 Sundance Film Festival double winner, “Quinceañera” which picked up both the Fest’s Grand Jury Prizeand Audience Award, a 2007 Spirit Award, a GLAAD Media Award, the Humanitas Award and was featured at the 2006 Berlin Film Festival.

As a screenwriter and producer his first feature film “I Do” tackled the controversial and timely issue of marriage inequality in America. Ross crowd-funded the film, raising over $90,000 on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, which went on to win 13 awards at over 35 film festivals worldwide in 2012/13 including Palm Spring’s International’sBest of the Fest. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect for the romantic drama, starring Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Alicia Witt with Ross as the lead, as it opened theatrically in North America the same month The Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA) was ruled unconstitutional by The Supreme Court.

The film was later released in N. America, Australia and the UK on iTunes, Netflix, VoD and DVD.

David personally picked up two Rising Star Awards for his work as an actor in “I Do” (Philadelphia QFest & Miami GLFF). He was also the recipient of the Jack Law Award at the Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival for his work as an advocate for marriage equality. “I Do” also won him Best Screenplay at the San Diego LGBT Film Festival.

David was recently interviewed by Stephen Fry for the groundbreaking BBC 2 documentary “OUT THERE,” which aired in the fall of 2013 in the UK.

In June of 2014 “Limited Partnership” had its World Premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival and is currently on the festival circuit. David is an associate producer on the documentary and is also featured in the film for his work with the photography project, “United By Love, Divided By Law,” which highlighted the plight of bi-national same-sex couples before DOMA was struck down in June of 2013. The film has won 6 awards so far including the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Woodstock Film Festival.

David continues to work as a writer, actor and producer in Los Angeles where he’s currently working on his next feature script which he’s attached to direct next year.

Hunk of the Day: Gio Benitez

gio benitez 100

Is Giovani “Gio” Benitez the most jacked newscaster of all-time? At the very least, he’s a strong contender. A correspondent for ABC News, on which he appears in Good Morning America, World News Tonight, 20/20, and Nightline, Mr. Benitez was a special request from a Twitter friend. This one’s for you, Mike! I couldn’t find any shirtless shots just yet (pesky professional journalist) but his body bursts through his shirts regardless. Congrats to Gio on his first Hunk of the Day honor.

Hunk of the Day: Diplo

diplo 101

One of the many mad musical geniuses that aided in the creation of Madonna’s majestic ‘Rebel Heart’ album, Diplo provided some of the most interesting and exciting work Our Lady has produced in the last few years, beginning with the insane ‘Bitch, I’m Madonna’ track that she just performed so winningly on ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.’ Who knew that he was also such a hot Hunk? As with most DJs these days, he gets all sweaty by the end of a set and doffs his soaked shirt like the best of them. More than that, though, it’s his musical madness that makes him so compelling.

Hunk of the Day: Scott Eastwood

When your Dad is Dirty Harry, you’ve either got it really bad or really good. Whichever happened to be the case, Scott Eastwood – son of Clint Eastwood – turned out to be really hot. He’s also supportive of marriage equality, and based on all his shirtless Instagram shots is clearly supportive of his gay fans. Currently he stars in ‘The Longest Ride,’ and you may make of the title what you will.

Hunk of the Day: Tommy Mac ~ Got Wood?

tommy mac 100

Woodworker extraordinaire, and Boston backyard boy Tommy Mac brings some much-needed wood to these parts as Hunk of the Day. Lately I’ve been obsessed with the Create television channel. Like HGTV and PBS, it’s filled with cooking and gardening shows, and lots of do-it-yourself stuff like oil painting and crafts. Populated by the likes of Martha Stewart and Lidia Bastianich, it’s a little  short on hunks. That may change with the appearance of Tommy Mac. With those flowing locks and piercing eyes, and that physique to match his work, Mr. Mac is a welcome bit of eye-candy in the more practical proceedings of the Create channel. His website is full of greater detail:

A neighborhood kid, eighth of nine, from the rough and tumble Dorchester section of Boston, Tommy was always fixing or building something. From an early fascination with tools to a voc-tech high school 4-year union carpentry apprenticeship program to 15 years as a journeyman carpenter, Tommy never strayed too far from his tool box.

Working construction on Boston’s famed ‘Big Dig’ Central Artery/Tunnel Project, a serious on the job injury closed one door for Tommy while his irrepressible spirit led him to open a new one.

Tommy’s career path took a critical turn when he was accepted at the North Bennet Street School, an internationally renowned craft and trade school. There he honed and refined his native woodworking skills while learning the art of fine furniture making. His curious nature and innate attention to detail led him to carefully research the technical intricacies and fascinating provenances of the historical pieces that inspired his works. It also led to a chance meeting with Bob Vila who appreciated both Tommy’s exceptional craftsmanship and his charismatic presence and featured Tommy and his work on national TV in his Colonial Home project.

Tommy’s big break came in 2009 when he hit the airwaves nationally as host/writer/executive producer of WGBH’s new television series, Rough Cut – Woodworking with Tommy Mac. The show was an instant success accruing multiple Emmy Nominations and several Telly Awards, including a Silver, along the way. Now in its fifth season, Rough Cut is a staple on public television’s schedule while Tommy’s vision continues to expand.
When not on TV you’ll find Tommy developing and perfecting woodworking tools with Pony Tools, Inc. and educating children across North America as the Celebrity Spokesperson of the Hardwood Forest Foundation.

From his platform as an established leader in the woodworking world, Tommy is ready to extend his reach into the broader sphere of home improvement. Years of hands-on carpentry and construction experience, the confidence to call on the experts in the technical trades and a mentoring style that is both instructive and inclusive positions him well for the new challenges ahead.

Tommy will always be one of the guys, but as he adds the DIY home improvement community to the legions of woodworkers who look to him for how-to advice, the kid from Dorchester with big ideas may yet prove to be one in a million.

Hunk of the Day: Luke Watson

luke watson 101

Some silly fads fade in meaning and intent, but others touch a deeper chord, especially when the support comes from an unexpected and unlikely place. Though my husband is a retired police officer, I don’t know too many other policemen willing to so openly and publicly declare their support for the LGBT community and the anti-bullying movement, but that’s exactly what happened in Toronto this past week.

Police Constable Luke Watson wanted to do something to raise awareness for the bullying that the LGBT community faces, but rather than simply Tweet about it, he went so far as to dye his hair pink. There is a more powerful meaning to the color than simple fabulousness: it references the The International Day of Pink, which originated in Nova Scotia when two high school students stood up for a gay peer who was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. That was in 2007. Today it is a Canadian anti-bullying and LGBT awareness event held on the second Wednesday of April.

This post salutes Officer Watson for his own charming way of showing support, and having the sexiness and guts to pull that shade of pink off. (And here’s hoping that Ellen DeGeneres gets him on her show, as he’s promised to keep the pink for six months if that happens. Hey, I’m all for it – I love pink!)
