Before Chad Michael Murray, there was the nipple-tastic Eric Close (46 today). They were probably out and about when he was on Santa Barbara, but they really got star billing on Now and Again. Sadly, that series only lasted a season and he's done relatively little shirtless work since. Mind you, his boyish face could be seen for several seasons on Without a Trace. And he's never been unemployed for long, having a compendious resume. The Magnificent Seven TV series was.. interesting. More to see of Eric up Close at Superherofan and Tumblr, and added wallpapers tomorrow.
Tom Daley (previously featured) turns 19 this week. He's become quite the little exhibitionist post-Olympics. Can a sex tape be in his future? Wouldn't surprise me. It's who it'll be with that'll be interesting. Until then, wearing the bitty speedos he does, it's practically like he's naked anyway. All I can say is that the boy has years of good shameless flaunting in front of him. Let's hope he uses his power (and body) for good, and not evil. Though you know, evil, kinda fun sometimes. More of Tom on Tumblr, and he'll be here again tomorrow.
In 1995, Timothy Olyphant (45 today) debuted off-Broadway. The following year, he started his on-screen career. Since then, he's moved effortlessly between film and television. His work is fairly evenly divided between the two. Dunno if he's done stage stuff since '95, but it wouldn't surprise me. Most actors who start in theatre find a way to return there now and again.
