Man Crush: Brett Dalton


Since I resurrected my Model Behavior series this week, I thought I’d do the same for my Man Crush feature. For my return, I picked the best thing about Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Let’s face it, the only redeeming part of that hot mess is Agent Grand Ward played by Brett Dalton. I will say though, the past couple episodes have gotten marginally better.

Dalton was born in San Jose, California. He attended both University of California, Berkeley and Yale where he received an undergraduate degree and Master of Fine Arts degree respectively. Hot body and brains to boot. Sign me up. Before landing a series regular gig on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the 31-year-old appeared in episodes of Army Wives and Blue Bloods. He’ll next appear in Chris Lowell’s (Veronica Mars) directorial debut, Beside Still Waters.

If you haven’t watched him on the ABC series, check out his best (ahem shirtless) scenes below, along with several photos. Let me know if you think Brett is crushworthy in the comments section.

Brett Dalton Cuddles A Puppy

  • Akmall Razlan

    i personally think that his eyes both left and right are too near with each other and that gap makes his cheeks become far.. i mean.. not normal..haha

  • Jake Criss

    I personally think he is perfectly beautiful in every way. The show rocks.

  • Odetofear

    sexy face.

  • LittleDreamer

    He looks so handsome with a little bit of scruff and he seems to have a lovely personality.

  • James

    Maybe it’s because I’m tired, but I swear I got a blip on the ‘dar.

  • BacchusPlateau

    I don’t know if it is just the bad script, but he is hard to watch as an actor on SHIELD. That series had so much potential. He’s a hottie, tho. Check out that treasure trail.

    The issue to me is Skye. Or the primary irritant in my viewing of the show. You cannot TELL ME that some noob, untrustworthy, rule-breaking girl like that would allowed anywhere near a super secret blah blah blah. It’s just ridiculous. Then they want to do character fleshing-out, so we see a little of Handsome’s past, but we don’t know how it ended, and we don’t know which of the 3 boys he was. Then MAY finally gets an episode, but it’s all with winks and nods, and they’re giving us a LITTLE of her story, but basically nothing. then she puts the shaving cream on Fitz at the end, and we’re supposed to believe that she’s ‘evolving’ into being more caring, because something TOO BAD TO TALK ABOUT happened in her life. *palms forehead* LORDY, I have my issues with this show. I’m hoping the producers do what the SMASH producers did to Ellis – LISTEN to the audience, and GET RID OF SKYE post haste.

    The problem with AoS is not so much Skye as it is it’s lack of understanding of the marvel universe. The best episode was the one with the origin of Graviton (the doctor sucked into the gravity field). The thor tie in was awful as has been all the shitari tie ins from Avengers. They need to pick a bag guy organization from the comics like Hydra or Aim and use it as the main antagonist. The problem with a ensemble cast with a known protagonist is you really need time to flesh out the rest. The brittish duo are annoying. Skye is, well, out of place. They should remove sky and the two kids and put in an agent with some sort of power as well as a comic relief a deadpool type character. Right now there is no chemistry. The romance between Brett and Ming Na’s character seems forced and makes no sense. I would really love it if it was revealed Coulson was gay (as well as being an LMD).

    I second that, and then raise you Fitz + Simmons. They need to go, too. Replace them with a cool robot.

  • Nate KW

    Yeah, hot.

  • DaveyX

    Sorry to crush hopes for some, but he has a girlfriend/fiancee and a daughter. Still hot in my book, despite the subpar show.

    He should do more nude scenes..:)

  • Kandi Bauer

    Thud. He is hot grrr why did the writers of AOS write him as a bad guy I miss ward on the team

  • Kandi Bauer

    Bacchus Plateau don’t give up on the show it’s getting really good now.
