In the first instalment of Constant Craven, I focused on Johnny Depp and Jsu Garcia, the hunks of the original A Nightmare on Elm Street. As many of you know, the second instalment took an interesting direction, (more to follow later) but the third and forth instalments were not without their fair share of hot and talented men. Actor Rodney Eastman was just 19 when he signed on to his first major role in Dream Warriors. Born in Montreal, the actor moved to Los Angeles early in his career and has been acting, and performing with his band, King Straggler, ever since.

In addition to his roles in the Nightmare series, Eastman has also appeared on screen in films which include; Deadly Weapon, Mobsters, Hear No Evil and The Opposite of Sex. On television, Eastman has appeared on many of television's biggest hits including ER, Monk, The Mentalist, Melrose Place, CSI, NYPD Blue, The X-Files and Rizzoli & Isles.

Eastman Greg Gorman

Eastman was shot a few times over the years by famed photographer Greg Gorman. I had heard Eastman was featured in Gorman's Volume 2 but wasn't sure until I saw the image below on Eastman's facebook page. Eastman wrote the following beside the photo. 'Throwback Thurs.. By Greg Gorman, 92 FB edit.. yep, I'm nekkid.' Well of course, I then had to cross reference with my copy of Volume 2.

and then...
and BEHOLD....
