So on Wednesday I shared the video from the cast & crew of Anything Goes where they covered One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful.
I'm a little late to the party -- but today is gonna be Carly Rae Jepsen "Call Me Maybe" day! First up is the original music video - featuring shirtless lawn care, car washes, of course a twist.
After the Jump: sexy shirtless gay boys, college baseball players, wacky high schoolers, and links to even more versions!
(Clockwise from bottom) Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, and Matt Bomer star in Magic Mike -- which I will definitely be catching a showing of when it is released on June 29th. The foursome of hollywood hotties play strippers in the film (which is in part based on experiences from Channing's real life -- he was a stripper in his youth.)
The EW report shares a tidbit about the casting of Hunk du Jour favorite Joe Manganiello:
Manganiello, for one, had no problems with the movie's wardrobe--or lack thereof. "When I came in for a meeting with the casting director, she hadn't seen True Blood. So she said, "Are you going to be comfortable with partial nudity?" And I go, "Have you seen my show? I'm the poster child for that."
So I have a little love affair with the One Direction song "What Makes You Beautiful" already, but any adoration I had for it before is only solidified and intensified by this KILLER lip sync video from the cast and crew of Anything Goes on Broadway.
Stephanie J. Block saying I'm beautiful and blowing me a kiss around the 1:00 minute mark grabbed me, and then Brandon Rubendall dancing around in the shower hit it home of course. Next show I work on, our company is doing one of these.
My buddy Bronson posted the video above of Miles Fisher giving us a music video homage to American Psycho Patrick Bateman... complete with underwear workout video footage. What do you think?
Check out this video from the 2011 CrossFit Games, as some killer competitors in amazing shape tackle an intense beach workout competion!
Jack Mackenroth has a lot going on at the moment! He has been nominated for a National Lampoon twitter award in the category of "Best Gay." He's out there drumming up support, so head over to National Lampoon and give him a vote!
Jack is also working to raise money and awareness for HIV with a 15-month beefcake calendar featuring the work of some stellar photographers. The star of said calendar? Well, Jack of course!
The autographed calendar includes work from Adam Bouska, Rick Day, Carsten Fleck, Frank Louis, James Franklin, Karl Giant, Thommas Synnamon, Mattheus Lian, Richard Gerst, Ray John Pila, Sonny Tong, Thomas Evans, Krys Fox and Preston Cros.
You can purchase the calendar on Jack's website, and all proceeds benefit amfAR --

So what do you think, do gentlemen prefer blondes?
...I hope they appreciated how unusual a sunny Fourth in Seattle is! Usually we have sun the day before and after, but rain on the Fourth of July.
There was a new episode of True Blood on last night... which means superherofan.net naturally has a new set of screen caps from the show. Head over there today and check 'em out!

Please welcome to the blog Adam Jacobs, who kicked off previews this week at 5th Avenue Theatre of Aladdin - a world premiere musical destined for the bright lights of Broadway.
Adam was nice enough to chat with us a little about his experience as an actor, working on a world premiere show, and how he keeps his sometimes-long-distance relationship strong when jobs take him on the road... check it all out!
Christopher Michael, Hunk du Jour: This isn't your first role in a Disney musical, did your appearance as grown-up Simba in The Lion King give you some Disney street cred that helped you land the part of Aladdin?
Adam Jacobs: Playing "Simba" in The Lion King definitely helped me get the role of "Aladdin." After seeing my performance, the heads of Disney Theatricals thought I'd be right for it and brought me in for a workshop. At the time I didn't even know it was in the works so it was quite a surprise to get that call. That went well enough that they decided to go ahead with the current production in Seattle. I also had played Cinderella's "Prince" in the national tour a while back so that might've added to the Disney street cred too.

Hunk du Jour: What gigs does Vintage Youth have lined up for Pride Season?
Giulio Pellcoolj: We have two appearances coming up for Seattle PrideFest. We'll be part of the Hard Times takeover of the PrideFest DJ Stage and then immediately afterward we head over to the Main stage. I'm very excited to be part of the Hard Times/Qulture Qreative crew and to play alongside DJ L.A. Kendall. We recently played a fashion show fundraiser in support of 3 Dollar Bill Cinema for the Run and Walk with Pride.

Hunk du Jour: For the two or three readers out there who have never heard of BROADWAY BARES give us the low-down... what is BROADWAY BARES all about?
Mo Brady: BROADWAY BARES is one of the biggest yearly fundraisers for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA). The show is like Broadway's version of a Burlesque show, with over 200 of the New York theatre communities fiercest performers strutting their stuff, and all the proceeds going to BC/EFA.
MB: Each year, the show revolves around a theme. And this year, BROADWAY BARES: MASTERPIECE is a strip show centered around great works of art. On June 19, two fun and crazy performances will be given for thousands at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan. I am told that the shows always sell out, so people should get tickets early!

From our friends over at Gay Bachelor Blog comes delightful Simon! Simon is a performance artist and sometimes-bartender in London.
When asked by GBB about what he is looking for in a guy, he said:
"The number one quality I look for in a guy is humility and an amazing sense of humour, after that, I guess you can't really compromise with chemistry and amazing sex in the long run, it's either there or it's not, but charming, masculine, sexy guys with a lot of ambition, drive and a youthful spontaneous energy (regardless of age) are always welcome."
Do you have what Simon is looking for?
