It seems a rather odd phenomenon to see actors that you were first introduced to as child stars, grow up and start doing adult material. I guess it has always happened, but as my thirties race by, there are more and more actors who I was first introduced to as teenagers, now in their twenties and thirties doing more adult like roles.
Actor Michael Angarano always seemed to be on the brink of adulthood though. Like many, I was first introduced to Michael when he played Jack's son on Will & Grace. Although still a teen, the character was always surrounded by fairly adult material on the show and part of the joke was always that he was wiser and more mature than most of the adult characters.
Even then, there was something in Michael that stood out. Talented for sure, but he was not your carbon cutter teen actor and it was clear early that he was going to go on to bigger and better roles. I have been impressed with the the young actors choices in movies and roles, and now at 25, he has a slew of great projects on his resume. I have not seen them all, but I developed a respect for his work in Red State and Ceremony and look forward to seeing him with Julianne Moore in The English Teacher.
I am not sure if I could sleep at night if this particular guy was living next door... Regular readers of FH will recognize this Calculated Musician who I regularly feature on the blog. I was surprised when a blog reader sent me the link last fall to Next Door Magazine's website which featured these incredible images from New York photographer Thomas Evans.
I was familiar with the magazine, but had not known of their site. One of my favorite parts of Playgirl Magazine used to be when regular guys sent in their own images for publication. If you visit Next Door, you will see for yourself some truly hot images in their gallery of models, including more of our feature model shown here!
I want to thank Next Door's publisher Indigo for supporting me sharing these great images from Thomas. He drove a hard bargain however which included my participation in the Everyman feature in the March issue. Check our more and order your own copies of past issues HERE:
