Happy Birthday today April 26th

Happy 36th Mr. Tatum!

Check out more of Channing HERE: & fellow birthday Boys Tom Welling HERE, Damien Van Zyl HERE: and even more HERE:

'Channing Tatum’s penis is gross. It looks like a hot dog that’s been left too long on the grill. The tip is hot-pink, singed, and shriveled. Movie stars tend to be vain, by nature and profession, but Chan—that’s what everyone calls him—does not mind one bit showing me his sad, withered wiener.'

I, like many of you first discovered actor Channing Tatum through his early modeling photos, long before Magic Mike hit the screen.  When FH began, Channing had a few TV credits, but was just beginning to take off Thanks to his role, and that shirtless scene... in She's The Man.   Channing may be the only actor who has appeared on FH every year it has existed. Head on over to THE OVER-FLOW and check out some of my favorite early images of Channing, including the modeling shot that proved that Tatum's penis heeled just fine!

The Bottom Line:

Luca:  Sunday morning... after a wild and crazy Saturday night.

Riverdale Re-Dux

Long time FH readers know I love me some Archie Andrews and the gang. I have written several times about growing up reading the comics and my affection for the Riverdale High ginger. Last month, The CW wrapped up filming the pilot for Riverdale, the networks update featuring Archie and the gang.

The update certainly seems to be adding the sexy, with a hot group of actors playing Archie, Reggie, Kevin, Moose and even a huge hit of hunky in their version of Jughead. If you haven't already, let me introduce you to the new crop of students from Rivdale High.

If the dark haired K.J. Apa,  (above) doesn't scream Archie Andrews, how about K.J after a little Clairol......

I would never have thought of former Disney star Cole Sprouse to play Jughead Jones, but let's hope the show at least takes advantage of their casting by recreating a few of those beach scenes from the comics.

I love the casting of Ross Butler as Reggie Mantle.  Not only is Ross sexy as hell, he has the attitude to pull off Riverdale's rich snob.

Kevin Keller marks' actor Casey Cott's first professional acting gig on screen.

Kody Kearsley may need a bit of blonde Clairol to pull off playing Moose Mason, but he certainly seems to have the legs and body for the part.

Window Dressing: Jonny by Alex Hilbert

'My favorite shots of him I think are definitely the ones of him with the jockstrap by the window. I think those are the ones everybody likes!'

The great thing about a photographer sending on 100+ images from a shoot, is the amount of images there are to choose from for piece.  It is also the worst thing, especially when you want to use almost every single one of them.  That's how I felt the other day as I attempted to narrow down to 10 or 15 of my favorite images of Jonny from photographer Alex Hilbert.

Although there were so many images that I loved, Alex made it easy with a mention of these shots in the last sentence of his most recent e-mail.  FH readers know I love windows within photography, especially when a model as hot as 21 year old Jonny Reinhart, is dressing, or in this case, undressing that window up so beautifully.

'I'm trying to find a balance between making sure the models are comfortable but also pushing them, and myself ,to get out of our comfort zone. I am still working on it.'

Out of his comfort zone certainly applies to how Alex felt during his work with Jonny.  Although he had always wanted to do an underwear/jockstrap shoot, and despite the incredible results, this was really one of the first times Alex stepped into this area of photography.  Although a visual artists, photography is still fairly new to Alex, he is by profession, a filmmaker.

'I've done a few narrative short films as well as a feature. But to pay the bills I started doing social event video and photography, so weddings, etc. So that led me into photography. I started photographing my actors, and I loved it! '

Although they are both on Model Mayhem, Alex first connected with Jonny about a shoot through Craigslist. Jonny ended up being the perfect model for Alex to try out a new theme within his work. Although they only met on the day of the shoot, Alex says they had great chemistry.  Even though each shot was not perfectly planned, Jonny used his skills as a performer, giving a 110% in each and every image.

You can see Jonny's stage and performance skills at play in so many of his shots.  It's not just in his confidence, but in his poses, facial expressions and the sexy and 'knowing' look coming from his beautiful brown eyes. Jonny clearly knows how to use his body to achieve the optimum results in front of the camera.  Although Alex was pushing his boundaries, the results were eye popping and incredibly sensual.  As soon as I saw one of Alex's shots of Jonny, I wanted to see more.

' It is still very difficult for me to do the underwear/implied shoots. I am trying to come out of my shell, but I get very shy, a lot of the times I am more shy than the models. But I do like to make sure that the models are always comfortable.  Jonny was a great model to work with because he was very comfortable with the more intimate aspect and he actually gave me a lot more than I was expecting.'

'Before this shoot with Jonny, I had tried another swimwear with another model.  It was a lot of negotiating with the model, one of my actors,, ecause I was being overly cautious. I realized afterwards that the model would've been comfortable doing more, but I was too shy to ask. But like I said, I'm still learning. I am so glad this shoot was with Jonny because I don't think I would have gotten such great shots with another model.'
