Morning Man Encore: Miles Bugby!

Okay, so Miles Bugby didn’t exactly win Wimbledon as a professional tennis player.

But with looks like that, it’s nice to be able to segue into a thriving career as a professional model. (See some of his portfolio here)

The 33 year old is British and reached a career high singles ranking of 1,208 in 2011.

He sure is awfully nice to look at!

Late Night Hunks: Brandon Routh! Tom Berklund! Trevor Donovan! Nyle DiMarco!

The journey to get back into #SuperheroShape has been a fun one! ???? HUGE thanks to @jadeway my trainer in Vancouver! He helped me get stronger & bigger, & stay healthy! ???????? And @reggiebradshaw_ & his gym @rizefitness for the training HQ. ???????? Also, thanks to @arinb for kick-starting the training in my first week! I had less time to train then back in 2004, but thankfully I benefited from muscle memory & good eating habits (@bulletproof #diet & #BulletproofCoffee #IntermittentFasting #Keto). Also, many others helped along the way. Previous years of training have laid the foundation. @drh.kinection has been huge in the last 3 years training me while in LA & helping me learn how to squat, deadlift, do pull-ups, etc. in the most safe/healthy way—preventing me from injury while lifting heavy. And thank you to #AlbertChang at #OriginalYinQiGongGym (Vancouver) for teaching me to gain better use of my core through #QiGong & #KneeBending training. All which have helped me feel & move more like #Superman! And lastly, #RayCampisi, my trainer for nearly 10 years—post #SupermanReturns. Ray passed away suddenly a few years ago, but he never gave up hope that I might return to the cape. I think of him often, and he inspires me still. ????????

Lil Nas X tells Gayle King that he would “pray, and pray, and pray” that being gay was a phase

Lil Nas X quickly rose to fame with his song “Old Town Road,” which broke the record for Billboard’s longest-running No. 1 song of all time. The rapper, whose real name is Montero Lamar Hill, revealed his song “Closure” was his way of coming out as gay. He told “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King the journey to making that announcement was not easy.

Here is a partial transcript of their interview to air on CBS This Morning on Tuesday:

Gayle King: Did you know as a little boy that you were gay? Did you think that as a youngster while people were telling you it’s not a good thing, were you thinking, “Yeah, but I think I am?”

Lil Nas X: Yeah, definitely. I knew. Especially, like, around my teenage, like, years. You know, I would just, like, you know, pray, pray, and pray and.

GAYLE KING: What were you praying for?

LIL NAS X: That it was, like, a phase.

GAYLE KING: That it would go away.

LIL NAS X: Yeah, it would go away.

GAYLE KING: I’m good with it, but I’m not gonna tell anybody, yeah.

LIL NAS X: S– Yeah, I mean, ’cause me being in this position, like, it’s easy for me. But, like, some little boy ten miles from here in literally, like, you know, like, it’s not– it’s not gonna be good for him. Yeah.

GAYLE KING: But don’t you think you coming out, the– could probably help others who are struggling the way you were struggling with it?

LIL NAS X: I think it’s gonna always help, you know. It’s gonna, we still have a long way to go, because it’s not, like, everybody, is, like, messing with me now. ‘Cause of course, you know, like, for somebody listening– somebody who’s, like, listenin’ to me in school right now, it’s, like, you know, you listening to– you’re gay, ’cause you’re listening to him. So it’s, like, there’s still lot to be done, of course. But I– I do believe it’s-it’s helping.

Morning Man Classic: Barry Williams!

I always envied Greg Brady because he had his own room in the attic during season 5 of The Brady Bunch and I thought it just seemed like paradise.

I have three brothers and didn’t get my own room until the summer before I left for college! And I didn’t have Alice around to pick up my dirty clothes!

Anyway, hunky Greg was played by Barry Williams who was so dreamy.

Barry, who turns 65 today, was one of the more talented Brady kids and has never stopped working in showbiz. In addition to scores of TV guest spots, he’s toured with productions such as Grease, The Sound of Music, and West Side Story and in 1988 appeared on Broadway in the musical Romance/Romance.

He currently hosts the satellite radio trivia show, The Real Greg Brady’s Totally ’70s Pop Quiz starring Barry Williams, broadcast Saturdays on Sirius Satellite Radio’s “Totally ’70s” channel. He also joined with the other Brady Bunch children in the current television series A Very Brady Renovation on HGTV which concludes its four-week run tonight.

Barry has starred in a show at the Yakov Smirnoff theater in Branson, Missouri where he now lives. The musical variety show that showcases his singing and clips, videos, and stories from his time on The Brady Bunch, The Brady Bunch Variety Hour, A Very Brady Christmas and The Bradys. He also tours with the musical group Barry Williams and the Traveliers.

Morning Man Classic: Christopher Reeve!

Christopher Reeve was born 66 years ago last week (Sept. 25).

We will never forget this handsome and talented actor and big screen Superman who lived the last nine years as a quadriplegic after being thrown from a horse during an equestrian competition.

He showed such courage after his accident becoming an activist on behalf of people with spinal-cord injuries and for human embryonic stem cell research.

He also continued to work as an actor in a TV remake of Rear Window and episodes of Smallville and as a director helming the TV films In the Gloaming and The Brooke Ellison Story.

Ryan Murphy to Martina Navratilova: “You are so so cool and more important than you will ever know”

View this post on Instagram

Can we just take a minute to STAN over the genius of Martina Navratilova (seen here at The Politician premiere with her wife Julia)? When I was growing up in the 1970s and 1980s in Indiana, I was OBSESSED with Martina. I felt her truth and her struggle. She was true and an icon and so so important to so many gay boys and girls (like me) who didn't have role models. When Brad and Ian and I were writing THE POLITICIAN we wrote a love interest for Gwyneth we kept calling "a tribute to Martina." I finally said to our iconic casting director Alexa Fogel "can you just track Martina down and ask her if she'll do it?" Alexa found Martina against all odds and she instantly said yes because she felt like acting would be a cool challenge after literally conquering and changing the world for all of us. I love you Martina. You are so so cool and more important than you will ever know. It's been an honor.

Morning Man Classic: Shaun Cassidy!

I guess you could say that Shaun Cassidy, who burned so bright as a teen idol in the 70s, was the Zac Efton or Justin Bieber of his day.

Today is his 61st birthday.

Shaun stardom picked up right where that of his older half-brother, David Cassidy, had left off with the elder Cassidy taking a low profile after his years on The Partridge Family and as a major pop star.

He was just 19 in 1977 when his self-titled debut album was released and had a number one single Da Doo Ron Ron and top 10 hits That’s Rock and Roll and Hey Deanie.

He also began a three-year run on ABC’s The Hardy Boys Mysteries during which Shaun released five more albums and did concert tours. Then, just as his brother’s stardom quickly faded, so did Shaun’s who also starred for a season in the ABC series Breaking Away.

But it really was just the beginning of a second act for the eldest son of Oscar winner Shirley Jones and the late actor Jack Cassidy (David has a different mother).

Shaun has become a prolific television writer and producer whose credits include American Gothic, Players, The Agency, Hollyweird, Invasion and Inseparable.

He’s also performed occasionally since his teen idol days. He and David Cassidy teamed up for a highly successful Broadway production of Blood Brothers and stayed with the show for more than a year in the mid-90s. Shaun has also appeared in several other Broadway and West End productions including Mass Appeal and Bus Stop.
