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.
All honesty, I’m a superhero geek so even if this ended up being shitty I was likely gonna stay tuned and suggest it to the rest of the nerds out there. That said, I’m not watching Arrow, so clearly I have some sort of SOME sort of requirements as far as script and plot line goes! Today, I’m looking at the recently released TV continuation of the epic 2012 film The Avengers: the Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. While trying to transplant what was one of the most grandiose films of all time (particularly graphically and budget-wise) into the small screen was a huge risk for the continuity of this brand, let’s be honest; Marvel has so much god damn money and devoted followers that they can do whatever they want and always come out ahead. Thankfully, this attempt was both decent and intelligible.
You’ll notice right away that my adjectives to describe this show aren’t exactly out of this world. Let’s call a spade a spade: the CGI (or whatever the hell it is they call it these days) is good as far as TV standards are considered but far from great and the HUGE name actors are of course there so the unique banter that we came to love from the film is starting from scratch with a few of the smaller characters carrying over and using the introduction of some new blood onto the set. The always bald but tension-cutting and humour Clark Gregg is revived from movie and works alongside previous co-(not quite)star Cobie Smulders of How I Met Your Mother fame. Joining the cast are Ming-Na Wen (from ER) and two essential newcomers (and eye candy) Chloe Bennet and Brett Dalton. Long story short, she’s funny and he’s doable. Now, let’s get to the show itself!
