For this week’s Man Crush, I thought I’d go all international on you. I came across this tasty little foreign hottie while checking out a trailer for a gay indie flick, “Romeos“. Meet Maximilian Befort. In the film, Max plays a gorgeous gay Italian playboy who falls for someone transitioning from female to male. Funny enough, Befort isn’t even Italian. Rather, this dark handsome stud is German. I’m sure he has one tasty “Bratwurst“.
The 22-year-old actor speaks several languages including English, Spanish, French and his native German. He lists basketball, swimming, diving, volleyball, juggling and and playing the piano as some of his interests. Befort is definitely one hot guy. Maximilian reminds me of a combination of Colin Farrell and Henry Cavill all rolled up into one tasty concoction. Check out a few pics of him below and see if you agree with that. Side note, if you’re feeling a little naughty, Google screen shots of him from “Romeos”. He’s got one bodacious booty. YUM.
I came across an interview with photographer Andrei Vishnyakov today in Polari Magazine talking about his career and his unique story. The gay photographer shoots mostly all men and the most interesting thing to me is that none of them model professionally. They all come from gyms, street gangs and sometimes even weddings. Woof!
Given the types of guys he sometimes works with, he’s not always “out and proud” with all of his models and treats them all as if they could “cut his throat” at any minute. “But it doesn’t mean that I am scared. No. I am really relaxed and it always surprises them – they expect their criminal image to be dangerous,” he said in the interview. “The idea of a threat might help me focus in my sessions with girls. If you do one thing wrong, one wrong word or look, they collapse and it destroys any chance of further (productive) shooting.”
The other thing I found interesting is his answer to the question asking him whether the fact that if he is a gay photographer somehow make his photography intrinsically ‘gay’? He responded, “I am afraid yes. But I am okay with it. There is a certain degree of sex in my photos. Most gay art is so directly erotic, often too sweet or pornographic. I am more interested in the inner world of my models. I know all photographers say that, and don’t get me wrong, a good butt is a must! But for me it is more interesting to see what a model projects and what is his real character.” It’s a really interesting interview and worth checking out!

Once again, I decided to feature two guys for this week’s Model Behavior. Don’t get used to this double-header of eye candy every Tuesday just yet. It’s only temporary. If you read my post on Daniel Hamaj, you know why I did it. Last week’s fresh meat models were such a hit, I decided to feature another 20-year-old. Ergo Hamaj. But if you’re similar to me, and like your men a little older and with a bit more meat, say hello to Ryan Bowden.
I fully acknowledge that being 27 isn’t old by any means, but it makes me feel less pervy lusting over someone this age then someone who just turned 20. Bowden is definitely worth salivating for. He sports facial hair which I love, and plenty of moles which I also love. This British model has been in the industry for almost 10 years. In addition to modeling, he also acts and sings. He currently resides in London and represented by New Madison Models. Check out a few of his sexy pics below.
You’re all dirty, dirty, dirty boys. Last week, I decided to feature two younger twink’ish male models and you ate it up. Both Colin Brazeau and Daniel Akyeampong racked up some serious page views. Typically, I only feature one hottie a week for my Model Behavior feature, but once again I’m giving you two guys to gawk at. Since you all obviously like fresher meat, I’m going to feature another 20-year-old for those who like chicken. Then for the others, including myself, who like their men a bit beefier and aged be sure to check out Ryan Bowden, my other pick for this week.
All I dug up on Daniel Hamaj is that he’s 20-years-old and originally from Slovakia. He’s done mostly editorial work for fashion magazines. A few photographers he’s worked with are Julia Spicker, Michael Brus, James Giles, and Marco Negri to name a few. Hamaj currently lives in Milan but cites New York City as his favorite place. Daniel is represented by a few agencies include View Management, Wiener Models, Request Model Management and New Madison Paris. Check out this up-and-comer who will no doubt become a prominent name in fashion industry in years to come.
The Superbowl is just around the corner, with the New York Giants facing off against the New England Patriots, I thought it would make sense to highlight a hottie from one of the teams. The forecast called for Steve Weatherford, a punter for the New York Giants. He’s 29-years old, standing at 6’3″ and is solid muscle. In the past, he has played for the New Orleans Saints, Kansas City Chiefs, Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Jets.
As evident by the tattoo across his chest, Weatherford is married to his wife Laura. They have a son, Ace, and a daughter, Carney. It recently came to everyone’s attention that he’s one of the few players that wears his wedding ring while he plays. “I love my wife but that’s not the reason I wear it in games,” Weatherford said earlier this week. “It’s about comfort. I wear it during all my offseason workouts so I just keep it on during the games too. It would feel strange without it.”
Check out some hot pictures of Weatherford below. He certainly has motivated me to hit the gym tomorrow!
In honor of the premiere of “Spartacus: Vengeance” this Friday, January 27 on Starz, I thought I’d dedicate my weekly Man Crush on the show’s leading man. When Andy Whitfield lost his 18-month battle with lymphoma, the fate of the gladiator show was in limbo. After some time, the network announced it was forging ahead and would recast the role of Spartacus. A few names were thrown around, but in the end Australian actor Liam McIntyre beat the competition and won the coveted role. Judging by early reviews on the premiere episode, Liam has proven a worthy successor.
The 29-year-old actor went through a rigorous workout regime to buff up for the role. Considering the role requires plenty of shirtless scenes, that was a wise move by both the producers and actor. Prior to taking the iconic role of the Thracian warrior, McIntyre was mostly unknown to North American audiences until his role on the HBO mini-series “The Pacific“. That said, the sexy stud was popular in his native country due to his roles on popular Aussie shows like “Rush” and “Neighbours“.
Before checking out “Spartacus: Vengeance” this Friday, be sure to conduct your due diligence and inspect the hotness that is Liam McIntyre. Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you the following pictorial exhibits to prove Liam’s crushworthiness. Enjoy.
Even though I like my male models a bit older and buffer, I thought I’d mix it up this week for my Model Behavior feature. Not only are you getting two this week (applause), but you’re also getting ones that are relatively young. A little extra treat for those who like your men “fresher”. Daniel Akyeampong is only 20-years-old, while Colin Brazeau is 19. Since I don’t want to come off as a creepy old man, I’m going to try to keep my signature comments PG-rated. LOL.
Brazeau was attending Northwestern University in Chicago before he decided to take a year off college to pursue modeling full-time in New York City. Just in case you were wondering, he was majoring in Economics and minoring in Music. Good looking, smart and musically-inclined, someone’s a modern renaissance man.
So far, his risk to pause his post-secondary education is paying off. He’s appeared in fashion spreads for V-Man, Fiasco Mag and Playboy. In addition, he’s done catalog work and slowly building his runway resume. Colin already caught the eye of photographer Rick Day and posed for him in a steamy shoot. Must be nice to be Day for a “day”. Snapping male models day-in, day-out must be a difficult life. NOT. Enough chitter chatter, let’s get on with the pictures. Be sure to check out this week’s other male model, Daniel Akyeampong, after this one.
If you’ve read my other Model Behavior feature this week, Colin Brazeau, you know I decided to feature some young fresh meat this week. I little chicken in between all the beef we show here on Homorazzi is a nice change of pace, plus it gives some eye candy to our readers who like their men taut and lean. Also, as promised last year, I’m making more of a concerted effort to show more diversity in my weekly Model Behavior feature. Daniel Akyeampong has a little somethin’, somethin’ and certainly fits the bill.
Even though Daniel looks like jail bait, he’s actually 20-years-old. Phew. That being said, he’s been modeling since his teens so picking age-appropriate pics for this feature proved difficult given his baby face. Speaking of his teen years, he was photographed by Bruce Weber for an ad campaign for Abercrombie’s teen line. Now an adult, Akyeampong is repped by Boss Models in NYC and Nous Model Management in LA. With his stunningly defined body, I have no doubt Daniel will be a face and body we’ll be seeing for a long time. Check out a few of his portfolio pics below.
