British mag Q+A UK features a rare appearance by a male model on it's cover this month! Alex Geerman (Soul) gets the honor, and he appears with fellow model Jeff Tomsik (Next) for an editorial shot by Sailey Williams
Photographer Kwannam Chu has a blog that I really enjoy reading -- fantastic visual style, plus he occasionally shares some of his amazing work! An example? This shoot he did with Ryan Taylor (DNA Model Management) for Men's Uno in China.
Check out the rest of the photos after the jump, then follow Kwannam's blog to continue on the journey!
Are your weekend plans up in the air? Perhaps you should go see George Clooney's latest flick, Up in the Air! Bad puns aside, I'm excited for the film... and am convinced George Clooney is only looking better each year.
Have a great weekend, hunk-lovers!

One of my personal favorite actors, Paul Rudd is currently in theaters with I Love You, Man. The best thing about Paul is that he isn't too good for anything. He has played in horror flicks, comedies, dramas, and well as TV roles, my favorite being Reno 911, where he played a Lamaze coach for a few episodes. As well as being so accomplished, he also has the rugged looks going for him as well. *Pounce*

I grew up listening to Harry Connick Jr. in my household. However, I have learned that many people only know him as an actor. Faithful to his roots, his sound is best described as a mix of jazz, funk, and blues. Sometimes listening to Harry makes you feel like you should be living 60-70 years ago, but he is true to his style and his sound is refreshing. Harry has been recording music since 1989 and movies since 1990. His most recent theatrical achievements are New In Town, P.S. I Love You, and Bug.
Along with his voice, his looks, and his acting, Harry was instrumental in raising money after Hurricane Katrina.

I stumbled across Hugh Dancy recently after his appearance in Confessions of a Shopaholic. Hugh has been doing movies since 2000, most notably Black Hawk Down, Ella Enchanted, and Confessions of a Shopaholic. To add to his resume, he is also a model for Burberry, modeling in campaigns with Kate Moss. And if you are lucky, you live in the UK, where you get to see Hugh on BBC. Or you could just call your local cable company and ask for BBC. Either way, we hope to see Hugh on the big screen soon again.
Interesting Fact: Hugh has been dating Claire Danes for over a year and they recently announced their engagement.

Blond hair, blue eyes, Australian accent? Heaven. Needless to say, Simon Baker has a foot in the door. Improving his odds, he gets his great body from surfing and water polo. Drool.
You might recognize him from this past year, where he starred in The Devil Wears Prada or as the leading role in the CBS series, The Mentalist. He has a few movies in the works, so keep a look out for this hunk!

If anyone was due for a comeback, it was Robert Downey Jr. For about 5 years (1996-2001), Downey spent most of his time in and out of jail for drugs. Not particularly known for a great body, Downey spent quite a bit of time preparing for the role in Iron Man. At the age of 43, Downey has proven his hunk worthy status. Most recently, he showed his humorous side playing "a dude, playing a dude, disguised as another dude" in Tropic Thunder. He was also nominated for this film in the Best Supporting Actor category.
Without further hesitation...

Blues/Soul singer Marc Broussard's voice speaks for itself. A fusion of different musical styles, his music is refreshing and energizing -- quite a shock for his relatively young age. (Voice aside, Marc is pretty easy on the eyes as well!)
Check out this video for his 2005 hit, Home. Enjoy!
Updated: We got Marc's hometown wrong - sorry! :)
What happens when you get over 30 of the hottest guys on the planet together?
The Mister International Contest will be held November 24, 2008 in Taiwan. Over 30 countries will be present, including Ivan Rusilko from the United States. Each contestant will be judged in three categories: swimwear, evening waer, and interview. Mister International is a fairly new organization, which was founded in 2006, which stands to break the traditional boundaries for pageants.
Currently, it does not look like Mister International 2008 will be broadcast in the United States.

Billy Marquart first appeared on our radar as a member of The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency, and we hear today that he's been quite busy working on the Abercrombie & Fitch Spring 2008 print campaign as well as a national Chevy commercial. Billy has come a long way since being named "Mr. Quincy 2004" at Quincy High School!
The 80th Annual Academy Awards... The Oscars... It was a big night last night! Once again Jon Stewart polarized viewers into "love him" or "hate him" camps, and the evening's generous sprinkling of montages made my "Everytime they do a montage, drink!" game not-so-fun oh-so-fast.
How dreamy is George Clooney? Were you as scared by the Red Carpet stalking of Gary Busey? How cute was Colin Farrell bringing his mom to the awards?
We'll enjoy an open thread about the Oscars today, check back later for a new Hunk du Jour Interview.
It was late night, so you'll pardon my brevity today. Ladies and gentlemen, Peter Sarsgaard. He began filming An Education this week -- the big news this morning is that Orlando Bloom pulled out of the project because of last minute scheduling conflicts.
Two more after the jump!
