Although Baron Cohen has had several frontals on screen, I believe all were prosthetics.  If there is one however, it's in his Borat wrestling scene with Azamat. (Ken Davitian)  If you check out the last cap, it appears that in one quick frame, the black bar seems to have missed a spot.  Some might argue it's actor Davitian's thumb, but it looks like a penis to me.

ACTORS & Skin: Gary Oldman

Sexual attraction is an interesting thing.  Sometimes, it springs up to surprise you when you least expect it.  I've never really been drawn to actor Gary Oldman.  Except for his roles in Harry Potter, and his guest stint on Friends, I've not been a huge fan of many of his films.  .

I've certainly seen enough to know he's a great actor, but there's was always something.  Maybe it was the many rumors about him, but he just never really did it for me.  Until this year...

Prick Up Your Ears (1987)

Oldman's skill as an actor has meant he's been nominated for many awards.  That has meant, I've search a few previous times to find his on-screen nude scenes when putting together my award show posts.  I did it, as part of the post, but never really thought much about it.  This year, all of a sudden, I'm salivating over Oldman's Rev. Arthur Dimmesdale in The Scarlet Letter, and searching for each and every one of his nude scenes.

The Scarlet Letter (1985)

This year, I found Oldman incredibly hot, and in addition to The Scarlet Letter, I also thought he was particularly sexy, (and murderous) in 1988's Track 29..  I also enjoyed watching his turn as gay writer Joe Orton in 1987's Prick Up Your Ears. Given his plentiful resume of nudity, it seemed his nomination this year made for the perfect reason for and Ode to Oldman and an Actors & Skin.

Actors & SKIN: Gary Oldman

Although Oldman's been acting professionally for close to 40 years, his nude scene all occurred in the eight year span between 1987 and 1995.   Oldman was in his late 30's and early 40's when he appeared in his 6 nude scenes, 3 of which included quick frontals.  Oldman also had a blurry dream like if you  jock strap scene in2001's  Hannibal. 

Prick Up Your Ears (1987)

Joe (Oldman) and Kenneth (Alfred Molina) meet at drama school and live together for ten years as lovers and collaborators. Both want to be writers, but only one of them is successful.

Criminal Law (1988)

It was 1988 when Oldman made his on-screen frontal debut in the crime drama Criminal Law. With his hair in this flick, he sort of looks like Christian Bale's older brother.  There is a rather 'aggressive' sex scene in which Oldman's penis is visible in just a few frames.  The more interesting part of the sex scene is that when Ben looks down at the woman he's having sex with, he see's Kevin Bacon's face instead of hers.  You'll have to watch the film to find out why...

Track 29 (1988)

In 1988's Track 29, Gary Oldman's character Martin, jumps out of the closet naked, and humps and then brutally murders Henry, played by Christopher Lloyd. 

Chattahoochee (1989)

In 1955 Florida, a Korean vet has a breakdown and is incarcerated in a "maximum security" mental health prison, where patients are abused.  Oldman plays Emmett, and although his nude scene isn't a pleasant one, he looks hot with his long beard. 

Romeo is Bleeding (1993)\

The Scarlet Letter (1995)

For me, Oldman was as his hottest as the long haired Rev. Arthur Dimmesdale in the 1997 adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne classic novel The Scarlet Letter.
