Underappreciated Hunks

This thread is for the gorgeous men of the near or distant past who maybe didn't get all the recognition their hotness deserved. I'll start it off with film/soap actor J. Eddie Peck. Tall, dark, handsome and with a butt you could bounce a quarter off of, he definitely should've been a bigger deal than he was.

Since I just posted a out him in the GH thread....John J. York. He was always relegated to second-tier "hunk" status on GH, but damn, he still looks great at 54!

J. Eddie made an appearance on "Cheers", and his ass was the object of lust for Carla and Diane, if I recall. What does the "J" stand for?

by Anonymousreply 601/11/2013

Well, maybe we can blame this on Missy Reeves, too? I only know him as him as an interloper in the Jack/Jennifer relationship, circa 1991-92, although I realize he went onto other things......

But did Eddie ever show his ass naked?

I remember him on Y&R in the 1990's, but haven't seen him since he was written out.

I also agree about JJ York. He had a great bod and ass.

Eddie was in the "Knights of the Scimitar" episode of Cheers. He played Lance Apolloniare, a college student who was wooing Diane much to the chagrin of jealous Sam. In this first scene, he's wearing skintight jeans showcasing his gorgeous round ass. The camera lingers on it a while from behind and from the side, and it's just a sight to behold. Carla just thought he was hot, and ended up jumping on him at the end of the show.

Robert Prescott, the blonde asshole from "Bachelor Party" was hot.

The last time I saw J. Eddie Peck he was the second to last Jake Martin on AMC. He was the one who was in a triangle with Greenlee and Leo (Greenlee actually had good chemistry with him and was not a bad triangle). I remember reading his age at the time. He looked a lot younger than his actual age and I think was only a year or two younger than Michael Knight (Tad).

I saw "Lambada" on THIS network a few days ago and saw that this is a really pretty man. But I did not know his name or anything else that he had ever been in.

by Anonymousreply 1501/12/2013

He also did Dallas AND Dynasty in the '80s--simultaneously, if I remember correctly.

by Anonymousreply 1601/12/2013

In "Curse II: The Bite", he played a guy who gets bitten by a snake, whose hand slowly mutates into a snake creature. It's gross-out stuff, but worth watching to see him in tight jeans.

by Anonymousreply 1701/12/2013

I'll add Eric Thal to this list. He was a hunk and a half, and genuinely good in films like "A Stranger Among Us" and "Six Degrees of Separation". Why he never took off is a mystery.

His nude scene from "The Puppet Masters" is always good for a few j/o sessions.

I saw Eric Thal in a rerun of SVU recently--playing a pervert, what else?--and he was pretty hot in it. He was also in a couple of episodes of Criminal Intent, as different characters, so the L&O producers must like him.

Hasn't worked in several years but IMDB says he was involved with Charlize Theron in 2010.

R21, that photo is also from "The Puppet Masters".

Eric was involved with Charlize a couple of years ago, but don't know if they're still together or not.

He was scorching hot as Samson in the TNT movie "Samson & Delilah".

Paul Telfer has a gorgeous face with chiseled features and crystal blue eyes. His body is more epic than the epics he's starred in. And he's a perfectly decent actor.

Why this British hunk has never starred in good -- or at least higher-profile -- shows is beyond me.

I'll take him over Sam Worthington or Liam McIntyre any day!

That playing the corporate supervillain in the RESIDENT EVIL movies might be the most significant work Shawn Roberts ever does is depressing.

Especially since RESIDENT EVIL hides his gorgeous eyes behind sunglasses and his rocking body beneath 10 layers and a leather trenchcoat.

At least Shawn has progressed beyond playing the bully in sophomoric sex comedies and extras in PERCY JACKSON.

Jessie Pavelka should be three times as famous as his douchebag cousin who went on THE BACHELOR.

Seems like he's guest-starred on just about everything but never broke out. He played Jorja Fox's boyfriend on an early season of "CSI" and was J. Crew Guy in "Broken Hearts Club." Just watched him on an old episode of "Wings." Gorgeous body and pretty face.

Dan Gauthier. Walking sex in "Teen Witch", and later starred in the soft core flick "Illegal in Blue" with Stacy Dash. He was on All My Children for several years as well. Most of his work came in the '80s, with guest spots on 21 Jumpstreet, Punky Brewster, Married with Children and a starring role on the short-lived series Tour of Duty.

I don't know why Drew Gallagher hasn't blown up as an actor yet -- or gotten on any good shows.

He's fucking gorgeous and can act adequately as long as he plays himself. Strangely, he got an Emmy for somehow being involved with the producers on KEVORKIAN starring Al Pacino.

But he should be a star on the CW by now:

by Anonymousreply 5803/06/2013

Johnathon Schaech should have been bigger. I would have liked to have seen him in more erotic roles, preferably GOOD ones.

I saw him in PHANTOM, that submarine thriller recently.

I definitely think his hottest days are behind him, but he's still a fine, solid actor.

Milo Ventimiglia has jacked himself up into quite the muscle stud.

He really showed it off as the marine in THAT'S MY BOY and now he'll have a bit part alongside overappreciated hunks Taylor Lautner and Patrick Schwarzeneggar when GROWN UPS 2 opens.

So at least we know that Adam Sandler appreciates him.

I want to see his hot ass in a leading role!

Interesting thread. Thanks for the pix!

by Anonymousreply 6307/03/2013

My 2 biggest surprises, at not becoming bigger, are Ivan Sergei, & Johnathan Schaech. Sergei was great in the indie "The Opposite Of Sex", as the bi-sexual lover, and Schaech was smokin hot in " How To Make An American Quilt". Turns out they were each the 'it' boys of the moment. Hard to believe those films were both almost 20 years ago. Sergei is now 42, Schaech, 43. I'm still surprised that neither has had a lead in any series. Both still look good - for guys in their 40's.

Funny I remember seeing many of these hunks in a movie or in television when I was younger and then just forgot them, because they weren't working.

Why did their careers stop? Good looking guys yet some other good looking hunks got the parts. Why?

Milo V doesn't belong to this group, I think he has had a good career so far, haven't forgotten him.

r34, Biehn apparently torpedoed his own career by being a nasty, violent drunk, or so I've heard.

I have a candidate from long ago, although he was probably more pretty than hunk: J. Phillips Holmes.

He was great in the first film version of Dreiser's An American Tragedy (later redone with Monty Swift and La Liz as A Place in the Sun), and in a few other films in the early thirties, and then - poof!

Jeff Branson of Young & Restless playing cop Ronan Malloy. Not only hot but the sexiest deep voice which just melts the viewer. We really should see the man in more roles, hope he lands a break through role because he deserves it.
