Are you watching Schitt's Creek? Although the Canadian series made it's debut in 2015, it wasn't until last Christmas that I got on the bandwagon. It of course had to do with a favorite hunk. While I was putting together my 12 Days of Christmas series, I featured actor Steve Lund (HERE:) after seeing him in the holiday film Christmas Incorporated.
Googling Steve Lund, hot shirtless shots from his his guest starring role in Schitt's Creek came up. In a multi episode arc in season 2 and 3, Lund played Jake, a Schitt's townie trying to form a throuple with David (Dan Levy) and his Stevie. (Emily Hampshire) Sadly, both David and Stevie were grossed out at the thought, despite their own confused relationship with one another.
Jennifer Robertson, Tim Rozon and Chris Elliott.
That story line is just the tip of the crazy iceberg of stories for video store magnate Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy) and his ex-soap star wife Moria (Catherine O'Hara) and their children David (Dan Levy) and Alexis. (Annie Murphy) When Johnny loses the family fortune, are forced to move into a rundown motel in Schitt's Creek, a town Johnny had previously purchased for a low low price.
Dan Levy and Dustin Milligan
The show is hilarious! Created and written by SCTV alum Eugene Levy and his son Dan, every character is a stand out from the four main leads down to every waitress, garage owner and town council member who interact with them. Dan Levy's David is center, but between the cast it is almost impossible to pick a favorite. Eugene Levy is quietly hilarious, O'Hara, always over the top fun, especially her 'in and out' accent. Dan Levy' facial expressions are priceless and Annie Murphy is a star.
The season just wrapped it's fourth season, but if you haven't seen it yet, find a way to binge from the beginning, I don't think you'll regret it. The relationships are key and all of them, Johnny and Moria, Johnny and David, Moira and Alexis, David and Stevie, Johnny and Twyla and so many more are at the heart of the show's humour and heart.
Although it was Steve Lund (below) and his chest that finally pushed me to start watching, in addition to the great writing and acting, there are several other hunks that will grab your attention! I posted a bit more about hunky farm hand Mutt (Tim Rozon) and sexy town vet Ted (Dustin Milligan) in the post below.
The Vet and the Farm Boy sounds like a great title for an gay porn film, but they are actually the occupations for two of the residents of Schitt's Creek vying for Annie's attention. The Vet is Ted, played by Canadian actor Dustin Milligan. Milligan might be best known to those south of the border for his roles in 90210, Shark Night 3D and last years A Family Man, with Gerard Butler and Willhem Dafoe.
With Ted, Milligan blends the sexy with the sweet and looks especially hot in his blue scrubs. Although I wish no harm to any animal, I think I would be faking fur balls in order to make frequent appointments to visit Dr. Ted. Also a writer and producer, Milligan is also had the lead role on the BBC America series Dirk Gentley’s Holistic Detective Agency.
Milligan is above all a performer, as you can see from his turn as Dm1LLY a.k.a. 3 Billz Millz a.k.a. Slimmest Shady a.k.a. Toupee Fiasco a.k.a. Jay Zed a.k.a. Kanye-NorthWest-Territories a.k.a. Pee-Pee Diddy a.k.a. Notorious A.V.E.R.A.G.E, in the video below. (and yes, the fact that Dustin dances in his briefs is part of the reason to include it)
'I don't know. I think self-deprecating humor is something that's inherent in every Canadian’s sense of humor. I’d rather make fun of myself. I'm not necessarily a super-funny storyteller, standup comedian type of guy. What I think is funny is just kind of the strange things that happen between us on a more intimate level.'
In one of Ted's sexiest scenes, Alexis installs a 'bunny cam' to help promote Ted's vet clinic. Ted gives his 200 viewers an unexpected show after his nightly run. initially shocked, Ted ends up warming to the attention...
Tim Rozon as Matt Schitt
Tim Rozon's Mutt Schitt first appeared as Alexis' community service work partner, forced to spend hours together picking up garbage and paiting fences in the town which bears his name. Although estranged from his mother, and his mayor father, Mutt is a man of few words, but much sex appeal. Although dating Ted, Alexis saw Mutt's sex appeal right away, even before his shirtless door opening.
That shirtless door opening introduced us to Rozon's incredible stomach, and thankfully the show has let us revisit it from time to time. In addition to his role on Schitt's Creek, the Montreal born actor also juggles his role as Doc Holliday on the series Wynonna Earp. Rozon still lives in Montreal where he co-owns a restaurant called Garde Manger with Canadian celebrity chef Chuck Hughes.
I loved when Mutt surprised Alexis by shaving his beard. Without his facial hair, Alexis decided they didn't have much in common and the relationship soon fizzled out. Shortly after, Alexis ran into Ted on the street, who after their break up, went on a solo honeymoon and let his facial hair grow out, again, causing Alexis' temperature to rise. Although I can see why the facial hair got Alexis going, on Mutt, it is especially hot!
