Shirtless Saturday: Phil Hickerson As PY Chu Hi

1

Here’s an old-school Shirtless Saturday post.   Phil Hickerson is a wrestler I discovered a few years ago thanks to the classic pro-wrestling matches shown on ESPN.  I missed out on his younger and furrier persona, so I just knew him as his villainous Japanese counterpart, PY Chu Hi. [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]

Britain Spellings: Video Game Reunion

1

My good buddy, GE, informed me about this Atom.com‘s exclusive comedy webseries called Video Game Reunion.  Here’s the official site’s synopsis:

Desperate to reboot their failed careers, the once-great video game heroes of the 1980s are coming back together… for a reunion. Go behind the scenes into the sordid lives of Mario, Mega Man, and their gang of 8-bit misfits in a live-action parody that answers the question, ‘Where are they now?’

I checked out the trailer, and I was very amused.  I will definitely be checking it out, starting on March 8, 2011.

More importantly, I highly approve of the casting of Britain Spellings as Mario… [KEEP ON WOOFIN’!]

Casey Hampton: HOLY *Insert Blubbering Sounds* MOLEY!

Dear ESPN Magazine: OMG.  Thank you!

I was pretty harsh on ESPN Magazine’s 2010’s “The Body Issue” when Steven Holcomb’s godly physique was digitally altered.  However, thanks to GE, he pinpointed me to ESPN Magazine’s “The Body Issue 2009: Battle Scars” which featured a close-up of Casey Hampton’s magnificent belly.  Needless to say, seeing an almost-nude image of Mr. Hampton is an excellent way to win someone like me over — even though this was shot a year before the Holcomb-Gate fiasco.  ^___^

Here is the link to the Flash Gallery of “The Body Issue 2009: Battle Scars”:

I can’t seem to embed this ESPN video, but you can briefly see him in an interview with all of the athletes — including Randy Couture — involved in that photo shoot.

Unfortunately, the Pittsburgh Steelers did not win the SuperBowl this year, so we’re gonna miss out on seeing a shirtless Casey Hampton at a SuperBowl Parade…  😦

Kevin Michael Richardson: The Bear With The Deep Bass Voice

2

I shared a clip of Cleveland Jr.’s rap battle with Kanye West from my Tumblr page, which then led me to the making of said rap battle in this video:

And the rest was history.  I discovered Mr. Kevin Michael Richardson and he’s definitely dreamy (at a quick glance, I thought he was James Monroe Iglehart).  And what caught my attention was his unbelievably sexy deep bass voice.  Check him out singing from the canceled show, “The Knights Of Prosperity” (I probably would have watched if I had known that he was in it):


His character’s name was Rockefeller Butts.

And check out his Wikipedia’s description of his work.  As an animation/gaming geek, this blurb is quite orgasmic:

Richardson has usually portrayed villainous characters due to his deep voice.

His credits include Captain Gantu from Lilo & Stitch, Goro in Mortal Kombat, the second voice of Skulker on Danny Phantom, Sarevok in the Baldur’s Gate series, Jolee Bindo in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Crunch Bandicoot in two of the Crash Bandicoot games, Tartarus from Halo 2, The Joker in The Batman, Ultimate Supreme Executive Chairman Drek in Ratchet & Clank, Antauri in Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!, Openly Gator from Queer Duck, Barney Rubblefrom modern-day animated series and movies based upon The Flintstones, Maurice the Aye-Aye from The Penguins of Madagascar, the unbeatable guardian of the time portal in Samurai Jack, and the voice of Exile in the late ’90s cartoon Road Rovers.

He often plays characters based on and satirizing comedian Bill Cosby, such as on Family Guy (with the voice of Jerome in the 7th episode of the 8th season) and The Boondocks. He also voices Cleveland Brown, Jr. and Lester Krinklesac in The Cleveland Show.

Finally, here are more woofy photos of Kevin Michael Richardson:

Josh Gad: Jack Black & Jonah Hill’s Spawn

Does actor Josh Gad look like Jack Black with Jonah Hill’s girth and curly hair?  You be the judge as Josh Gad briefly impersonates the two actors (with artistic liberties) as a correspondent for The Daily Show in Comedy Central:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I first noticed him from Season 2, Episode 2 of Showtime’s Bored To Death.   And with the following image, it’s going to be very self-evident why I immediately fell in lust with this big and cute cuddly chubby bear…

Finally, check out his Funny Or Die comedy skit as “Jose Sanchez: Workout Guru”…  He appears to have a propensity for revealing his armpits as much as possible.  And I totally do not have any issues with that.  😉

[Unknown] Bartender From “Bored To Death”

Bored To Death 03

Bored To Death has quickly become one of my favorite TV series.  Not only is the woofy Zach Galafianakis in it, the show is smartly-written and perfectly cast with Jason Schwartzman as the lead.

But on today’s post, I just want to point out a handsome actor who played a bartender in Season 1, Episode 5 (The Case Of The Lonely White Dove).  Unfortunately, IMDb nor the end credits shed any light on this mysterious stranger’s true identity…

Will Sasso: Semi-Shirtless In “Entourage”

Will Sasso - Entourage 01

abearjunkie from Tumblr dropped this huge bit of info about Will Sasso being shirtless in Season 3, Episode 14 of Entourage.  Anyway, he’s not fully shirtless but it’s possibly the closest we can see the handsome Will Sasso showing a bit more skin.  However, I’ve been tracking National Lampoon’s The Legend Of Awesomest Maximus (which appears to be another swords & sandals spoof, such as 300, Gladiator, and Troy) because Will Sasso plays the lead!  Please, National Lampoon, do well on your spoofing promise by making Will Sasso wear less costume as possible…

So here’s that quick scene of Mr. Sasso chilling in the pool…

Jeff Richards: Flashdancer Of “FlashForward”

ChaserAlex was kind enough to share with me a video clip of a hot chubby bear dancing in FlashForward.  I have already seen it but I am very grateful that he has already extracted the awesome video clip.  Thank you, Alex!

Anyway, the hot chubby bear looked very familiar but I couldn’t quite pinpoint who he was.  IMDb’ed his character and I was surprised to learn that it was Jeff Richards, famously known as “Drunk Girl” from Saturday Night Live (here’s a “Drunk Girl” video).

He kinda resembles Greg Grunberg here...

FlashForward is a pretty interesting show so far.  I posted this mashup on Tumblr before and I figure I post it here as well.  It’s my theory as to what caused the mass blackout…  😉
