As I have said before, I do not watch Daytime soaps, but did watch a bit when a kid. Mostly Another World, Texas and The Young and The Restless. But...I do follow my daytime hunks. Jon Hensley (Not to be confused as google is, with John Hensley from Nip/Tuck, whom by the way gives me the creeps) Has been on As The World Turns for many years. I have follwed Jon through his young hunk shirtless years through his current look, still hot. Jon did it for me with his longer hair and scruffy look, he always seemed in pictures and clips to be sweating, just in from doing some farm chores. Anyway, you can see where my farm fantasy's went, but anyway, here is Jon Hensley. It was hard to find good pics of Jon. I had a few, including the fifth one down, which was used for promo for ATWT, but I remember seeing some pretty hot pics of this guy in magazines years ago. Wish I had saved more of my older magazines.
This is Jon in his classic farm look. Glad I saved the magazine this came from!
Some pics from Jon's unofficial site HERE:
Note: This site tends go on and off line a bit.

Viggo Mortensen is a great looking man. Viggo is also an accomplished actor choosing movies and roles outside the norm. His role in Lord Of The Rings not withstanding, Viggo often takes on challenging characters, anti hero's, not shy about having an audience not like him. Viggo has never run from nudity, his past roles are filled with skin. Skin that is character driven, not just to tease and drive up box office. His frontal in The Indian Runner was something most hollywood actors would shy away from.
While Hollywood often uses new young actress's to fill movie screens by having them disrobe, rarely are guys made to do the same, Christopher Atkins being a rare exception. Recently movies such as Another Gay Movie, and the American Pie movies are showing more male flesh, but not a lot of frontals. Independent films tend to show more, but most known actors still shy away from showing the full monty. I can understand this, but I still respect Viggo for being a true actor, and his role in Eastern Promises is a brave one. Not many people would not only appear naked, but particpate in a brutal fight while being so. Viggo does not appear to let his feelings get in the way of what is good for a role.
I remember awhile ago watching a cute blonde on Saturday Night Live. Finally saw his name was Jay Mohr. Everyone once in awhile the skit would require him to be shirtless which was a bonus. SNL never chose to make him a featured player, so Jay moved on to movies where he has done well. Jay is not your convential hunk, but is one of my favorites just the same.
