Fright Night: Actors & Skin

'You don't have to be afraid of me. I know what it's like being different. Only they won't pick on you anymore... or beat you up. I'll see to that. All you have to do is take my hand. Go on. Take my hand!'
Jerry Dandrige 

Chris Sarandon

I certainly wouldn't have fought taking Jerry's hand, especially given Jerry was played so deliciously by actor Chris Sarandon.   I never saw it at the time, but as I got older, I certainly felt Sarandon's sex appeal and allure.  As stated, I did a piece last summer, thinking the actors only nude scene was his darkly lit butt scene from the 70's flick Lipstick. (HERE)    

Temptress (1995)

When recently looking again, I noticed Sarandon had another butt scene, this time from the 1995 softcore flick Temptress. Given the film was produced by the Playboy Entertainment Group, most of the nudity was from the female cast members.  We did however, get another darkly lit butt reveal from Sarandon.  Given I initially thought he had no on-screen nudity, finding two, even darkly lit, was a nice surprise.  You can download the scene above on SendSpace HERE:

Roddy McDowall

My main memories of actor Roddy McDowall are when I was an adult and discovered his work in classic films like The Planet of the Apes and The Poseidon Adventure.  There's something about The Poseidon Adventure that has me checking it out whenever it airs on TCM.

Angel, Angel, Down We Go (1969)

The black and white nude above is credited to McDowall and it's said that early in his career, before making it in the business, he posed nude for photographers of the male physique.  Given the British actor began his career as a model, this makes sense.  As far as on-screen nudity, the only scene I could find was a brief butt shot in the 1969 drama .Cult of the Damned (Angel, Angel, Down We Go)

Jonathan Stark

In My Brother's Keeper, a 1990 episode of Tales from the Crypt, actor Jonathan Stark, who played Billy Cole in Fright Night played Eddie, one half of a set of Siamese twins. His other half was played by actor Timothy Stack. 

Tales from the Crypt (1990)

One timid and kind-hearted and the other reckless and sadistic, must make a decision on whether or not to allow an experimental surgery to have them separated even though one of them doesn't want to be split from the other.  Given it was Tales from the Crypt, you can guess it didn't end well.  Given the context of the butt scene, I'm not if it was the actors, body doubles, or prosthetics, but it's the only nudity I could find for Stark.

It's not not surprising that there was not much on Stark the actor out there. After appearing in a number of big screen hits and guest starring on television, Stark moved behind the camera. First,  as a writer, writing for several TV shows including Cheers, The Nanny and The Drew Carey Show.  He also wrote episodes for a couple of shows he produced including Ellen and According to Jim.

That brings us to actor Stephen Geoffreys, (below l) who played Evil Ed in the film. After a few more successful turns in films in the 1980's, his career took a sharp turn, into gay porn.  Check out more in the post below

Stephen Geoffreys: A Fright Night at The Hunk Hotel

'And to what do I owe this dubious pleasure?'
Evil Ed

Actor Stephen Geoffreys had an awkward audition for the Anthony Michael Hall's role in 1985's Weird Science.  Although he didn't get the role, he made an indelible impression on Jackie Burch, who suggested him for Fright Night. Although he was not a horror-movie fan, Geoffreys loved the script, so he called his agent and emphatically declared that he would love to audition for Charley Brewster. 

Geoffrey's was disappointed and confused as to why they thought he'd make a good Evil Ed.  It ended up however, working out well. In many ways, Evil Ed was a break-out character from 1985's Fright Night and Ed's portrayer, actor Stephen Geoffreys, seemed to enjoy his experience on the film.  He wasn't however, as impressed with the script for the sequel, Fright Night 2.  Although legally, Geoffreys was obligated to reprise his role, he shared in an interview that he hired a lawyer to get him out of the film, and out of his contract..

Geoffreys maintains he has no regrets about not doing the follow-up film.  He'd had success in films with roles in Heaven Help Us and Fraternity Vacation before being cast in Fright Night.  After filming finished on the 1985 film, he went on to appear with Sean Penn and Christopher Walken in the film  At Close Range and on television on shows including; Amazing Stories and The Twilight Zone.

Despite his success in films, and a Tony Award nomination for his role in the 1984 Broadway Production of The Human Comedy, but the time the 1990's rolled around, Geoffreys was struggling to find roles. In a what some saw as a startling and unexpected career move, Geoffreys turned to acting in numerous gay porn films, both softcore and hardcore productions.  

Under the pseudonyms of Sam Ritter and Stephan Bordeaux. Geffrey's appeared in films and videos including; Hole in the Wall, Sex on the Beach, The Cock Pit, Latin Crotch Rockets, Leather Virgin and Transsexual Prostitutes 2.  Some FH readers may remember the actor from Campfire Video's Hunk Hotel back in 1996.  The video was re-released, and as a way of increasing sales, used the actor's real name this time. 

'Sam Ritter'

After a lengthy absence from mainstream films, Geoffreys made a comeback in 2007 with a co-starring role in the indie fright feature Sick Girl. Geoffreys continued his run of Horror films with appearances in Do Not Disturb, (2010) Emerging Past, (2011) and The Day of the Living Dead in 2014.

Creative Components: Sebastien Clermont by Chris Teel

Who or what got you started with modeling? 
The first time I did something like modeling was posing nude for life drawing classes. I just wanted to try something new, and it got me to be really comfortable with my body, so I decided to keep looking for other kinds of similar gigs 

What has been your favorite experience modeling thus far? 
My favorite shoots are those that have a creative/thematic component or an interesting setting. One that comes to mind in particular was a shoot on a beach at Scarborough Bluffs. It felt so liberating to be naked in this natural landscape, and I had fun taking all kinds of creative photos with props. 

Any odd or strange stories from any shoots? 
I’ve been working regularly for an underwear company, and they have some pretty kinky gear. So the last shoot I did with them, for example, I spent some time in a leather body bag. 

Have you ever said no to a photographer's concept or idea? 
Not that I can think of. I do pick shoots based on concepts that interest me, but I’ve never had to say no or back out of something 

What, if any, are your boundaries when modeling? 
I’ll do pretty much anything that doesn’t involve me having to touch or be touched by someone else 

What factors did you weigh before deciding to take it all off? 
Not much, honestly. I’ve never been a prude person, and I don’t have any problem with people seeing my naked body, whether they be strangers or people I know. I just have no shame about that kind of thing, I don’t think nudity should be a taboo in the first place. 

Did the response from friends/family enter into your decision? 
Not at all. Everyone I know is pretty supportive of what I do, or they just find it amusing. 

How did you first connect with Chris?
Chris was a mutual friend of another photographer I had worked with! 

Had you been familiar with his work and if so, what about his imagery first stood out?
I hadn’t seen his work before, but when his friend mentioned that Chris would be interested in shooting me, I checked out his pictures and really loved the way he worked with framing the human form. 

What was your favorite part of your work with Chris? 
Both times I worked with him he’s been really respectful, makes good conversation, & had interesting and creative ideas!

What part of your body are you most happy with? What part gets the most attention from others? 
Probably my abs. 

What is your favorite part about modeling? 
It’s a confidence boost for sure, both the process of it and seeing the pictures after. It’s also creative when it’s a good shoot. 

As a artist, when you're modeling, do you like to collaborate with, or try to trust in their vision? 
It depends. If it’s a paid shoot, I’ll usually let the photographer do whatever they want since they are paying me to fulfill their exact vision. But often I’ll pick unpaid projects that have interesting concepts and bring my own ideas to it! For example, in November I’ll be doing a shoot where some of my art will be projected on my body. 

Do you have any dream concepts for shoots you'd like to try, as the artist, or as a model?
I’d love to do more high-concept shoots, ideally involving outdoor locations too. Some kind of Tarzan shoot in the jungle or a witchy theme in a river, etc. Also I want to keep finding ways to incorporate my own visual art in the process of modeling.
