I thought about spelling out phonetically but I didn’t think anyone would get doo doo doo doo dooooo dooooo doo doo doo doo doooooooo.
Today for my hunky Thursday I say Mahalo to Aussie Alex O’Loughlin. (did I get that right Raye?)
Alex can currently be seen on Hawaii Five-0 (thus the title of the post) with Scott Caan (I loved him in American Outlaws – oh I may have to feature them on a Thursday), Daniel Dae Kim (Jin on Lost – oh Lost, must do a Thursday on them too/Gavin on Angel – there’s another Thursday) and Grace Park (Boomer/Athena on Battlestar Galactica – there’s another … LOL).
I was a late-comer to the show not having been a fan of the original and not really being a big “cop show” fan, but one night I was bored and put it on … it might have helped that the moment I put it on I saw Alex O shirtless … but I don’t think I would have kept it on if the storyline hadn’t drawn me in. It’s now a permanent resident on my DVR. The fact that it’s shot in Hawaii helps too I love looking at how pretty it all is (I really want to go visit).
Of course I had seen Alex prior to Hawaii Five-0, I had seen him as the brother to Jonathan Rhys Meyers in one of my all-time favorite movies August Rush (a fantastic film). He was a baddie in Whiteout (which co-starred another American Outlaw alum, Gabriel Macht) and was the man who fell in love with J-Lo in The Back-Up Plan.
He was also in cult favorite Moonlight (I’ve never seen it) as a vampire. Sadly the show hit the airwaves prior to Twilight and found no audience, I’m sure it didn’t help that it aired on Friday nights.
Alex is also one of the few men I like with or without facial hair AND he has tattoos!. He just looks GOOD. I hope you enjoy my choice for this Thursday’s Hunk
