Dear Shonda Rhimes...

Why is it 10 seasons in, you still have Alex (Justin Chambers)having sex each season with some boring interchangeable nurse or intern in the supply closet? Isn't it time you had this character not just grow from his experiences but have it stick?

For the first time in those past ten seasons, I turned of a Grey's premiere twenty minutes in. Too many new faces, all boring, blending together. Too much forced drama and too little focus on the relationships we used to care about. It was good while it lasted!

Prematurely Grey

The net was a buzz a few weeks ago with the news actor Charlie Hunnam was cast in the role of Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey. Many people don't seem to think Hunnam is right for the role, but my guess is many of them only know the actor from his role on Sons Of Anarchy.

I was a little surprised too, not that Hunnam was offered the role, but that he took it. The first time I profiled the young actor on the blog, there were not tats, the hair was blonde and Hunnam was most famous for his turn as Nathan on the UK version of Queer As Folk. Nathan was the 'Justin' role and I much preferred the incredible Hunnam over the Randy Harrison in the US version. I have not read Fifty Shades Of Grey but I know Hunnam can play anything, so will do this role justice.

Sons of Anarchy

With the books rise and oversaturation in the media and within pop culture, it had me wondering why Hunnam would want to be apart of something, although sure to be high profile, seems doomed to be mega mainstream with almost an impossible task of living up to what was the unexpected within the novel. Those who go to this movie, maybe much like those who headed to the big screen versions of Sex & The City, know what to expect which in many ways is sure to lead to disappointment.

Don't need a reason to revisit some of Charlie's hottest moments from QAF:

Queer As Folk (1999-2000)

Optimum: Philip Fusco by Hans Fahrmeyer

'I don’t think of myself as famous but when I do think of what I have accomplished I like to thank god and all of my fans for supporting me.'

That face, not to mention that body, and those fans have made New York model Philip Fusco one of the most popular and successful male models on the web. It would be hard to find a website or blog devoted to the male form that hasn't a large section of their site devoted to images of Philip.

Philip Fusco has tapped into what his fans enjoy and has worked hard to connect and welcome those who admire and respect his work. There are so many male models who are uncomfortable, even angry at the attention they get. Fusco knows that in modeling, especially the world of modeling, fans are crucial to sustaining success and enjoys and is inclusive of the admirers he attracts.

Fusco passion for fitness began early and he began working out at the age of 14. By 17, he was ready to enter the modeling industry and before too long was signed with Empire Model Management. Fusco's great looks, and New York charm, have not only made him a favorite with fans, but of photographers as well. Some of his campaigns have included Topgun Leather, Exercise For Men, Falocco Activewear and Gregg Homme. Currently, Fusco divides his focus between modeling and personal training.

Philip and Hans created a great partnership and collaborated to create some of Phil's most popular images. Thanks to Hans to for digging threw his archives to find some of my favorite images, and a few new edits for this week's Sunday With Hans.
