Among the many great things about working on the @GoodTrouble 2-Hour Holiday Special was getting to play again with these two fantastic women, Teri Polo and @saumdays. Lots of onset silliness. They rock. Catch it if you can this ‪Monday the 16th at 9p‬/8c on @Freeform. Even more of a merger of the Adams Fosters and the Hunters. #GoodTrouble #HolidayTrouble

Morning Man Classic: Christopher Plummer!

Every time I attend the annual The Sound of Music sing-along at Hollywood Bowl, I’m struck by how damned handsome Christopher Plummer is. Just breathtaking as Captain Georg Johannes von Trapp. I’d have left the convent for him in five seconds flat!

The still busy actor turns 90 years old today!

He’s still pretty damned handsome and won the Oscar at age 82 for his performance as a gay man in Beginners. He currently stars in the box office hit Knives Out.

During his stellar career, Plummer also has won two Emmy Awards, two Tony Awards, a Golden Globe Award, a SAG Award, and a BAFTA Award.

Steve Grand is “super excited” to announce the launching of his new underwear line!

Steve Grand posted this new earlier today: “I’m super excited to announce the launch of my underwear line, GRAND AXIS! Shop now at and follow us at @grandaxis
And yes, cause I know it will be the first question, the SWIMWEAR launch will be this SPRING :) As many of you have probably inferred by now, I’ve been an enthusiastic fan of men’s underwear for a long time! I’ve always loved how a great fitting pair of underwear has the power to make a man feel confident, strong, sophisticated, and sexy. After years of accumulating hundreds of pairs of underwear in all different styles, from brands all over the world, I know that finding a pair of underwear that is the right style, fit, and quality, can be very hit or miss (especially when ordering online). I decided that is was time I take what I had I learned as a consumer, expand on it, and create the perfect men’s underwear brand: functional and comfortable enough for everyday wear; masculine and sporty enough for stripping down to in your gym locker room; and sexy and sophisticated enough for the bedroom.”

“After two years of perfecting the fit and hunting down all the highest quality materials, I think I have created something you are really going to love!”

“I used all my own money on this project so I’m starting small with just 3 styles in 2 colors, but I spared no expense when it came to designing the patterns and using all the highest quality materials available!”

Check it out for yourself!
Only at – Steve

So that’s the second nomination for @taron.egerton this week. And I couldn’t be prouder or more grateful to the @sagawards for recognising Taron’s fantastic performance in @rocketmanmovie Taron showed extraordinary courage to not only act the part, but sing the part as well. His transformation took my breath away and I felt like I was watching myself on the big screen. Congratulations once again dear Taron. And massive thanks to everyone at the #HFPA and @sagaftra giving him the honour. It’s been one helluva week!

Here are some Frank Sinatra tunes to celebrate the 104th anniversary of his birth

Today is the 104th anniversary of Frank Sinatra’s birth.

He was an Oscar winning actor and a popular television and stage performer but for me, it was all about the music that I still love to listen to.

Of his many, many classic songs, below are some of my favorites.

WATCH: Ronan Farrow lists “incredibly brave sources” as he accepts award from The Hollywood Reporter

On Wednesday, Ronan Farrow received the Equity in Entertainment Award at The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment 2019 for his journalistic work against gender-based discrimination. In his acceptance speech, he lists a large number of his “incredibly brave sources” by name and also thanks his sister, Dylan, and his mother Mia Farrow.

Thursday Morning Man: Manuel Neuer!

I present to you Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to kick off your Thursday.

The 6ft 4in star is a great looking guy who says as long as his love for football remains the same, then he will continue playing.

‘ I love playing football every day. I love working hard, I love training, I love the games, I love the challenge,’ he told the official DFB website in 2016. ‘As long as that still applies, I don’t see any reason to call time on something that makes me so happy.’

After an erroneous translation of his statement “it would be good if a professional football player came out because it would help others to do the same”, a South American publication concluded that he was gay, which was taken up by many other media outlets and has since been widely believed in the Spanish speaking world. Mexico were fined for their fans’ homophobic chants when Neuer had the ball during the World Cup match in 2018.

2020 Hindsight or 2020 Perfect Vision . (thirst pic alert? maybe ????) . As a decade closes it's way easier to make a mental list of all things you wish you had done or accomplished than actually adding up all the amazing things you have learned, experienced and achieved. That's the part of hindsight I don't like to live, the "I shoulda". . . Clarity comes on the daily. It comes in the quietest moments of reflection and it comes in waves when you are doing something with people that fill you with love, excitement, motivation and happiness. The hindsight should be about seeing all the good that has occurred letting that give you perfect vision for the upcoming year. . . Eliminate any urge to let go and start again in a few weeks. Just keep going. Every day is a new start. Make it worthwhile. . . What will you do to have #2020vision ? . . . . . . . . #fitness #health #fit #workout #motivation #fitfam #fitspo #lifestyle #gym #instagood #love #healthylifestyle #training #wellness #healthychoices #exercise #glutenfree #healthyliving #instafood #healthyeating #diet #inspiration #motivate #hustle

Wednesday Morning Man: Quentin Halys!

Okay, Frenchman Quentin Halys is ranked way down at number 174 in the world on the ATP Tour but he is so handsome that attention must be paid!

Just 23, he has plenty of time to climb upon the rankings and has been as high as number 102 in the world (in 2018).

While he has yet to win a title in the main tour, he has won eight singles titles and seven doubles titles on the lower tier Futures and Challengers circuits.

His biggest successes came during his junior years. He reached four Junior Grand Slam finals, three in doubles and one in singles. Of the four finals, Halys won the 2014 French Open partnering Benjamin Bonzi. He reached a career high combined (singles and doubles) of World No. 03 on March 31, 2014. He ended his junior career with a 98–44 record on singles and 83–35 on doubles.

Elizabeth Smart’s father says there’s something he has to talk about – 17 years after his daughter’s kidnapping and miraculous rescue. Ed Smart is revealing how he struggled to come out as gay in his first network television interview about his sexuality.
