Glee’s Lea Michele (Rachel Berry) fell for him twice, so it was only natural that I fall in “crush” with the curly haired actor as well. 25-year-old Jonathan Groff made his debut on “Glee” this week as Vocal Adrenaline’s lead singer, Jesse St. James. As promised by Glee producer Ryan Murphy, Jonathan’s character is definitely a MIVA.
Groff who’s primarily known as a stage actor has appeared in both television and film before his “Glee” gig. He’s acted on the daytime serial “One Life To Live” and the TV movie, “Pretty/Handsome” which was directed and written by “Glee” producer, Ryan Murphy. Guess that’s how he got his new high-profile TV job. On film he’s starred in Ang Lee’s “Taking Woodstock” and later this year, he is scheduled to appear in Robert Redford’s “The Conspirator”.
This hot former Real World houseguest and current YouTube star has become an internet sensation with his daily shirtless fitness exercises & nutrition tips. He started working out when he was fourteen, after he got his first job at Gold’s Gym. By 18 he was a personal trainer.
Naturally, he got into modeling. He actually won the Men’s Health “Iron Abs” contest in 2007, which took him to New York for several public appearances. Getting comfortable in this new city, he sent in an audition tape to The Real World, and made it into the house 6 months later. After it was done, he decided to also take some acting classes, having opening up the door to the onscreen world.
After taking a break from last week’s weekly crush- thanks Patrick for taking over. I’m back and with a hottie you’re sure to drool over. Former model turned actor, Greg Vaughan, has won my internet heart this week. The 36-year-old pretty boy grew up in Texas and was discovered at the age of 16. He entered a “Back to School” modeling competition and was selected as a finalist but didn’t win. Having receiving positive feedback, he decided to pursue modeling and signed with an agency.
After his high school graduation, he headed to Milan and quickly scored high profile modeling jobs. The Greek & Native American descent stud worked for Armani, Versace, Hilfiger, Banana Republic and Ralph Lauren. Eventually he grew tired of modeling and became dissatisfied with the industry and moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. Like his modeling career, acting jobs came quickly. His first acting role was for Baywatch. Since then he’s appeared in Beverly Hills 90210, Charmed and Malibu Shores. But it’s his role on daytime TV on General Hospital that’s garnered him the most fans.
This week’s Man Crush is an incredibly hot and talented dancer from Winnipeg, Manitoba here in Canada. His name is Tyrell Witherspoon (like Reese). Although not Legally Blonde, you may in fact recognize him from Season One of So You Think You Can Dance Canada. He made it to the finals in Toronto, but was eliminated in the first round. Two seasons later, with a whole lot more experience, he’s ready to do it again, having gone to the auditions for Season 3 earlier this year in Halifax. Season 3 for So You Think You Can Dance Canada airs Summer 2010.
He’s 23 years old and keeping himself very busy! He currently teaches Hip Hop at Kickit Dance Studio in Winnipeg and picks up other side jobs here and there. These odd jobs include teaching hip hop in gym classes and schools throughout the city, choreographing high school musicals, first dances for weddings, and so on. At the moment, he’s choreographing Hello, Dolly! for a high school just outside of the city and getting ready to head out to Edmonton for 2 months. There, he’ll be apart of Beauty and the Beast at the Citadel Theatre, which runs from May 1st-30th. Yep, there’s more. After that, he will be in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat back in Winnipeg during the summer.
He plays “Captain Awesome” on the NBC spy-hit “Chuck” and that name couldn’t be any more fitting. The 34-year-old blond adonis hails from the Windy City. During his college days at The University of Illinois, he played football which is partially responsible for his hot physique. After graduating, the 6’3″ hottie decided to travel to Australia and New Zealand to explore the outback while determining what career path he should follow. I guess he must’ve seen a sign to dabble in modeling during his time in the Australian Outback .
He received nationwide attention when he scored modeling gigs with Abercrombie and Fitch and various other campaigns. After getting a taste of the limelight, he decided to move to Southern California to pursue acting. His first acting gig was for an episode of “The Nanny” with Fran Drescher. Funny enough, years later he would re-team with Drescher to star in her short-lived sitcom “Living With Fran”. In between those jobs, he paid his dues working in daytime for the now-canceled soap “Passions”.
His name literally means handsome in French. This week I decided to focus my ogling on one of “Desperate Housewives” yummiest male character. Beau Mirchoff plays Danny Bolen, the son of Wisteria Lane’s newest mysterious couple. I always thought he was average cute until his shirtless scene which showcased his slightly hairy chest-grrrrrr.
The 21-year-old American/Canadian actor has also starred in films like Scary Movie 4 and The Grudge 3. Apparently he likes filming sequels. If he ever became a superhero, he could be called “Sequel Boy”. Mirchoff was born in Seattle, Washington but moved to Victoria, BC just two days later. Given his surroundings, Beau became a fan of the outdoors and picked up hobbies like hiking, camping and sea kayaking.
Finally the day has come. The day I can officially crush on Taylor Lautner without feeling like a creepy pedo. Launter officially moved of jail-bait territory yesterday on his 18th birthday. The former martial arts child star set a bunch of teenage girls and gay men’s hearts a-fluttering, when he exposed his chiseled abs for the Twilight sequel.
Taylor’s good looks can be attributed from his multi-ethnic ancestry. According to Wikipedia, he is mostly from Dutch, French and German descent with a bit of Native American. Though most people know him from the Twilight movies and his high-profile romance with ex Taylor Swift, he’s been around the entertainment industry since he was a child.
Since the Grammys are this coming Sunday, I thought I’d select my weekly crush from the music industry. Alternative rock group, Kings of Leon is nominated for four Grammys: Best Rock Song: Record of the Year: Song of the Year: and Best Rock Performance by a Duo of Group with Vocals. Though Kings of Leon share a whole whack of similar DNA- they’re made up of three brothers and one first-cousin- only one of them is truly crushworthy in my books- Anthony Caleb Followill. The 28-year-old frontman for the rock group, more commonly goes by just Caleb. In fact, all the band members go by their middle names as opposed to their first- it’s a family tradition.
Caleb spent a majority of his childhood roaming around the Southern United States with his father who was a traveling Pentecostal preacher. When his father resigned from the church, they moved to Nashville and embraced the rock-and-roll lifestyle they had previously been denied. It was there they formed the band which they named after their father and grandfather- both were named Leon.
