Parker Stevenson. There's a name that takes me back. I probably started watching The Hardy Boys because Shaun was in it, but I quickly fell for Parker. He being the more manly of the two, yet with the perfect hair. I hadn't seen him before in Lifeguard, and missed him later during the first few seasons of Baywatch. He did appear, thank goodness, on Battle of the Network Stars, for which, much thanks to TPTB.
If you'd like to get better acquainted with Parker, I got most of the above photos from here, here and here.

Don't know anything about Dominick Monteleone, except that he's appeared in more DeCoteau movies than anyone except Jason-Shane Scott, and is around 21 according to his MySpace account. He's a recent discovery of David's, as all the movies he's done were made in '08 and '09. Boy's done some modelling too. Which is understandable, with a body like that.

The first thing I saw Gregory Harrison (who's 60 today) was Logan's Run, the TV series. It was part of the whole post-Star Wars SF bonanza. Which produced mixed results. The show didn't even last a season, but Gregory almost immediately after landed a regular role on Trapper John, M.D.. Ah, Gonzo Gates...
Let's not forget Battle of the Network Stars, on which he appeared 4 times during his early Trapper years. Greg in a speedo, now that's entertainment.
While he was working on Trapper, though, he starred in what readers of this blog are more likely to remember him for. That being the lead in the 1981 made-for-TV movie For Ladies Only. As if Gregory Harrison as a male stripper wasn't enough, they added the hotness that was Marc Singer to the mix. Humina-humina, and again, humina!
You know, if it hadn't been for For Ladies Only, there may not have been the "classic" A Night in Heaven. The world would have been a poorer place without those two cinematical gems, doncha know.
GAY ROLES: It's My Party
Two guys who, imho, should be shirtless as often as possible.
Philip Olivier birthday is Friday. He's another Brit who, like one of last week's offerings, is very gay-friendly. He even went so far as to host the Mr Gay UK competition in 2005, and played a gay character the following year. Love a straight guy that is that secure in his sexuality. The fact that he's got a body that won't quit is purely incidental.
What? What are y'all laughing at? No, really, what?
I forgot about the Doctor Who connection. Philip did several audio plays for Big Finish as a Seventh Doctor companion.
This Saturday sees Mark Wahlberg another year older. Here's a guy with a body that won't quit and can't be fired. Now that he's a serious thespian, he doesn't go shirtless nearly as often. But he has offered us years to appreciate the effort he made to get that body, as far back as the Marky Mark days. And he still shows it off occasionally. We'll be appreciating him for years to come, methinks.
GAY ROLES (Olivier): Hollyoaks: In the City
For those readers in the United States, take some time today to remember those who gave everything in service to our country. It's more than just a three-day weekend, folks. Some of the history into how it became a national day of commemorating our fallen.
