I am sure most readers of FH have already checked this out, but if you haven't, you should! I am not sure any guy has hit the Net so hard, and so fast as UK television personality Dan Osborne. From television roles, reality shows and his naked Ice Bucket Challenge, Dan seems to seek out every opportunity he can to show to remove every bit of his clothing. This week, Dan joined the strippers of Dreamboys on stage and thankfully for us, Casperfan has his opening night, video included! Check it out HERE:
With motion pictures, sequels are generally made when the original was a success with audiences. Although this success is generally financially motivated, the success could also be thought of in terms of creating a product that audiences want to see more of, or a product with potential, worth exploring in different ways and in greater detail.
A good sequel starts by taking what audiences loved about a film or character and putting them in new and different situations. That is exactly what photographer Dale Pierce does here with model Michael Annese. In my first feature focused on their work together, (The Promise) Dale shot Michael throughout his New York Studio space, in hallways, doorways, elevators and window ledges. For the sequel, a new environment to showcase Michael's look and abilities was required.
I can't think of a better setting to surround Michael with, nor a better contrast from Dale's studio than the tree's rock and incredible waterfall. Dale reports 'The day was beautiful.The waterfall is private.' which gave artist and model plenty of time to get the shots they wanted. I especially love the wonderful lines and exquisite poses captured, that equal the beauty and tranquility which surround them.
If you remember the first feature, you may recall that I entitled the piece on their work The Promise, because of Dale's promise to Michael to create a professional portfolio with images that would bring him attention. That promise has come to fruition. Not only did Dale's images bring Michael positive feedback and offers, Michael has just completed a shoot in New York, with other projects and shoots on the horizon.
With the television season's start just around the corner, it is time to start looking at the hunks who are about to become regular parts of our television watching lives. Thanks to a little inspiration from the image above from Mark Grantham, lets begin with The Flash!
I am a huge fan of producer and writer Greg Berlanti, and he has gathered an impressive stable of talented and sexy men to inhabit the world of The Flash. Actor Grant Gustin takes the lead starring as Barry Allen in a role that hopefully show off all of the actors skills. Glee missed it's opportunity to really show off Gustin's charm and talent, but with that show heading off into the sunset, Gustin ended up coming out on top.
'I let myself feel the pressure a little bit because I wanted to live up to The Flash and make the fans happy. If it had been a team of people that didn't know what they were doing, I probably wouldn't have gotten this role because they would have just cast a blonde guy who was buff. "They were looking for somebody who encompassed the heart of Barry Allen and at first, I didn't realize I did. Now that I've explored the character, the comics, read the scripts and talked to [the producers], I understand why I got this role. It will probably forever be my favorite character that I'll ever get to play.'
As likable and adorable as Gustin is, he would have to wear wear the burden of being the only hunk on the show. When the series premiers on the CW on October 7th, Gustin will be joined by a slew of actors from original Flash, John Wesley Shipp as his dad to the brothers from Prison Break making an appearance or two. Below, check out some of the men who will co-star and guest star on THE FLASH!
