Hunter Parrish, who plays Silas Botwin on Weeds, will be taking on one of the lead roles in Spring Awakening on Broadway. Playing the role of Melchior, Hunter will get almost naked and simulate sex on stage, in addition to singing, of course. We can’t wait. [Queerty] Keep reading »
I recently found out via Facebook that my man-friend’s ex-girlfriend (with whom I’ve had a not-so-pleasant experience) is now living in New York, working for a former employer of mine, and is connected to a good friend. This is a major bummer, as it has revived my deep-seeded urge to keep tabs on her. I think the man-friend thinks I am crazy, but I truly believe all members of the human race indulge in a little internet stalking — and to prove it, I decided to quiz the guys on my IM about their habits.

My favorite part of the summer Olympics, well besides gymnastics and diving, is swimming. There is nothing hotter than a swimmer’s upper body — though I must confess I am grossed out by the fact that they have to shave ALL their body hair in order to swim faster. Everyone goes on and on about Michael Phelps and how he tied the World Record for some race and how he is probably going to be the most decorated athlete in Olympics history, but it’s Ryan Lochte who caught my eye during the Olympic Trials this past weekend. First of all, he doesn’t have that gross, thick swimmer’s neck; second, he totally kept up with Phelps during the race in which Phelps tied the World Record, coming in only a millisecond or something behind him; third, he didn’t wax his armpit. Woohoo! Keep reading »
We’re not entirely sure whether these voicemail messages are real, but regardless, they are brilliant. The back story is that Dmitri met Olga, they exchanged numbers, and he gave her a call (or two) to ask her out. He knows the way to a woman’s heart is through serious persistence and confidence.

We can’t figure out how Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter shaves his face without a mirror. That’s 100 percent talent. [6/30/2008, Times Square, New York City] Keep reading »
Long hair is a major trend for young men these days, with Kate Hudson’s son, Ryder, as its poster child. Personally, I think little boys with long hair look like girls, but once they’ve gone through puberty, that’s another story (Smith Jerrod on SATC before he shaved his head, anyone?). Amelia and I were discussing how guys with longish hair (shoulder length or shorter) can be very attractive, as long as they take care of it. I asked a friend of mine who has long hair for his rationale for growing his hair out. “I never set out to ‘have long hair,’ I just stopped getting it cut,” he said. “I liked it more and more the longer it got — it just kind of “fit” (And it became much more practical when it got to ponytail length.) Most guys who find long hair appealing already have the requisite style and personality to pull it of, so it usually works out. Oh, and the ladies love it. Really.”
What do you think about guys with long hair? And is there an age after which it becomes unacceptable for a guy to have longer hair? Tell us what you think in the comments. [Chicago Tribune] Keep reading »
The trailer for Quantum of Solace, the new James Bond film, has finally arrived. Daniel Craig is back as Bond, and is on a revenge mission. He makes revenge extremely sexy and I, for one, am seriously hot for the morose, brooding Bond, as opposed to the debonaire, sleek, party boy that Pierce Brosnan portrayed. Anyway, check out the trailer, after the jump… Keep reading »
I’m so excited to see the new Pixar film, Wall-E, so it better not disappoint. That would be like having a crush on someone, and then finding out they’re not half as cool as you thought they were. I have a huge crush on Wall-E. [Wall-E Trailer] Keep reading »
At the men’s fashion shows in Milan, an interesting new shoe style for men appeared: the male wedge, aka the “medge.” We hope Tom Cruise is the only one who adopts this style. (Sidenote: When you do a search for “male wedge,” Google says, “Did you mean: male wedgie“. Ha.) [The Times, U.K.] Keep reading »
Some pop stars like to be seen and heard. They rock a mic and their look. So, in honor of the men who make “pretty boy” sound so good, here are The Frisky’s Top Five Metrosexual Musicians:
5. Andre 3000 What’s cooler then being cool? Being Andre 3000, a gentleman so stylish he makes plaid golf gear look hip.
4. Marc Anthony The always dapper Anthony probably has a walk-in closet of clothing only rivaled by his wife’s. Even as a new dad, he’s constantly clad in a suit and you know J. Lo only lets him off his leash for spa days.
3. Mick Jagger More preened then even his supermodel arm candies, Mick Jagger is the grandfather of metrosexual. The rock ‘n’ roller is still wearing skin-tight stuff with sequins well into his swinging 60’s.
2. Pharrell Williams From head to rims, Pharrell is covered in all the right trims. He matches more than beats, Pharrell wears baggy hip-hop clothes with color-coded sophistication. He also knows how to rock a fur.
1. Justin Timberlake Started out in a coordinated boy band, but now he’s all that with his own clothing line. In his signature skinny ties with vests, JT’s ensembles are as smooth as his moves.
