Need Suggestions of Good Bodied, Sexy Male Actors, Rockstars, Etc.
February 13, 2014 8:27 PM   Subscribe

I am developing a line of men's casual wear and we are brainstorming for handsome, well bodies actors and celebrities age 35 + to imagine wearing our pants. Because of the style and look of the pants we have to make the website hyper-masculine (ala Bruce Weber) My template is Daniel Craig. (My goal is to actually get these pants into a Bond film) The actors/performer/sportsmen do not have to "good guys" but they do have to be sexy and masculine. Some examples include Aaron Eckart, Matthew Mcconaughey, Woody Harrelson, Michael Phelps, etc

Isaiah Mustafa
Seal
Taye Diggs


Please, don't use Michael Phelps as a muse... you've set the bar much higher with your other examples vis-a-vis guys whose sex appeal depends equally on brains and bod.

All the above guys.

But ... I don't picture Bruce Weber's work as being remotely masculine. Everyone is pretty and well-coiffed and muscled, but there's also a distinct lack of testosterone or sexual energy.

Please. Anson Mount. And if you have not checked out Hell on Wheels, I urge you. That man has singlehandedly restored my interest in cowboys, post-Heath in Brokeback Mountain.

My wife and I watched "Ocean's 11" and it's sequels the other night and we agreed that Brad Pitt can really wear an outfit. This is also true of Mr. Clooney and Mr. Damon. I would also add Robert Downey Jr.

Benedict Cumberbatch looks quite good in basically anything (if he allows someone else to dress him).

The Kingslayer Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (disclaimer - in the show he's wearing a lot of armor and stuff so I haven't gotten as good a look as I would like)

oh and Jon Hamm. Definitely Jon Hamm. He has a certain reputation relevant to pants, anyway.
