Did you watch the premiere of The Following on FOX this week? The serial killer drama lived up to its hype, especially the gory violence. I was definitely squeamish a certain points. If you haven’t watched it yet, I won’t spoil things too much, but I highly recommend it. Hopefully, the show can maintain the quality of action and suspense in the pilot episode throughout the season. Since I’m already hooked on the show, I thought I’d pit the show’s gay couple against each other in our latest Who’d You Rather battle. May the hottest man win.
First up is 24-year-old Nico Tortorella (left). I first noticed the Illinois native when he briefly starred in The CW’s ill-fated The Beautiful Life back in 2009. The former male model soon found work on both television and film. Tortorella appeared in ABC Family’s Make It or Break It and in the fourth installment of the Scream horror franchise. Nico obviously impressed Scream screenwriter Kevin Williamson. He hired Tortorella again for his new creation, The Following.
Adan Canto (right) is an actor hailing from Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico. The 31-year-old Latin heartthrob appeared mostly in Mexican films before landing his role on FOX’s The Following. Canto made his film debut at the age of nine in Like Water For Chocolate. In addition to acting, Adan is a professional singer and plays the guitar and piano.
Now that you have a brief background on each stud, check out a few photos before picking Who’d You Rather. Not trying to sway the vote in any particular way, but I love me some Tortorella. I picked him as my Man Crush a few years ago. Watching him on The Following has inspired me to update that post in the near future. Enough campaigning, check out both guys below.
Nico Tortorella plays Jacob Wells/Will Wilson while Adan Canto portrays Paul Torres/Billy Thomas on the FOX show. In the pilot episode, the two play a gay couple. But as it turns out, they might not even be gay. That’s all I’m going to spill. Here are a couple of stills from the show, before the individual pics begin.
