My love of Downton Abbey, and creator and writer Julian Fellowes, wasn't enough to have me rushing to watch HBO's The Gilded Age when it premiered earlier this year. There was something about the promotional clips that I saw that had me thinking I wouldn't enjoy it. I was wrong....
I finally started it last weekend, and finished the first seasons 9 episodes this past Sunday night. Although the overuse of green screen was annoying, overall I loved diving into the period drama. The entire cast was spectacular, especially the scene stealing Carrie Coon. If there was one weak link, it was actress Louisa Jacobson. Marian is the character who brings us into the story, and although Jacobson is likable and engaging, she fades in certain scenes with some of her powerhouse co-stars.
There are a lot of hot men in the cast, including the incredibly sexy Mr. Russell. Actor Morgan Spector matches his television wife in every scene and I love the relationship and energy they brought to life. Even with those black suits and that sexy beard, Spector's sex appeal could not be diminished.
Spector has done quite a bit of on-screen nudity, and removes pretty much everything, including his sexy beard. Check out one of his most revealing roles on the NEXT PAGE HERE:

Ahhh time flies. Seems like just yesterday that I was lusting after shirtless shots of Y & R's Joshua Morrow. Now, it's actor Rory Gibson who recently joined the show as his son Noah. I haven't really watched much Y & R lately, but I set my DVR to record what I believe is the show's first same sex wedding.
In the show's almost 50 years of airing, Mariah and Tessa are not only the first same-sex couple to marry on the soap, it's the first gay couple they really given any attention to. I've seen Rory a few times on the show, but he didn't seem to be given much to work with when it comes to writing and story. It appeared from the wedding however, Noah has a love interest, or maybe two, in his future. Rory seems up for the task, and he sure is purdy...

When I was watching Spector in the HBO series, I kept thinking there was something so familiar about the actor. I thought I'd seen his eyes, his face, and heard his voice before. I don't think I had though. I checked out Spector's IMDB page, and don't think I've seen any of his previous work. When I was putting this piece together however, I think I know when I felt I know him. Spector looks as if he could be the older brother of senator Jon Ossoff.
' A woman on the brink of a marriage proposal is told by a friend that she should date other men before spending the rest of her life with her boyfriend.'
'Split is the surreal and epic journey a young woman takes to claim her own darkness and sexuality so she can stop putting it into the hands of her abusive lover.'
