Chuck Champ – Your Call

My Netflix account is only about 4 months old, but it’s earned the subscription fee back several times over.  For example, I’ve been binge watching Chuck, which I sort of lost track of when it was originally airing around the middle of season 2.  The casting director needs an honorary homoerotic wrestling award for packing so much wrestling fantasy meat into one production.  In a lottery-style homoerotic wrestling tournament, in which competitors draw names for their opponents in an elimination competition, who would end up in the final round, what genre of homoerotic wrestling, and who would be the Chuck Champ?  I know how this celebrity homoerotic wrestling fantasy plays out in my mind.  What about you?  Comment with your take

True Chuck fans immediately flashed on Stone Cold Steve Austin, who made a couple of guest appearances on Chuck as a mammoth, musclebound bad guy (what else?). However, since it’s my blog, I’m unilaterally DQing Stone Cold from this competition. His extensive ring experience makes gives him just too much of the inside track, so I’m appointing him to be the celebrity referee for this Chuck homoerotic wrestling tournament. Of course, you can decide if he’s a dirty ref or not…

White Collar/Magic Mike/Normal Heart dreamboat Matt Bomer was technically the first hunk featured on Chuck, so the ripped stud may have the jump on any other competitor. He’s 5’11’, a DILF, a ‘Mo, and a ripped piece of man meat. That may make him hard to beat!

Of course, titular character Chuck played by real-life adorkable supreme Zachary Levi may have all the momentum, considering this is, literally, all about him. He’s 6’3″, lightly muscled and totally fit, and he makes me get all weak-kneed with a full-on smile.


Adam Baldwin was the most consistent big bad beefy bear in Chuck, playing John Casey, the very epitome of a sadistic heel. He’s 6’4″ with comic book hero handsomeness, definitely more of a natural for the “Big ‘n’ Beefy” mat room genre. How would he do in an elimination, full on homoerotic tourney?
Ryan McPartlin was shirtless in pretty much every episode, and I for one want to pin the medal on the genius that insisted on copious shots of “Captain Awesome” Devon Woodcomb sweaty and working out. Yet another tall drink of handsomeness, Ryan climbs into the tournament at 6’4″, chiseled chin, 3% body fat, and a strong leaning toward a body beautiful narcissist/exhibitionist.
Brandon Routh was around for a season of Chuck, displaying occasional (aka not enough) shirtlessness, but never, ever failing to show off his gargantuan biceps. His character was a textbook babyface hero who makes a full-on, groin-grabbing heel turn that makes all that beef just that much more dangerous. He may be “merely” 6’2″ in this battle of giants, but we’ve all heard the rumors about the legendary size of the salami he carries with him everywhere, which, depending on the genre, could totally swing things his way.
A 2-episode appearance and the subject of the episode title “Chuck versus the Beefcake” earns MI6 agent Cole Barker, played by Jonathan Cake (seriously, the beefcake’s last name is Cake!) a total shot in this tourney. The entire point of his appearance in the series was to be mouthwateringly sexy, perpetually shirtless, sporting a raging hard-on and seemingly unflappable no matter how much pain is tossed his way object of red hot lust. It’s a good thing in this crowded field of giants that the muscled hunk is also 6’3″ and insanely handsome. He strikes me as precisely the type of character that puts the erotic in homoerotic wrestling, guaranteed that someone is getting fucked one way or another.

Your dark horse entry into the tournament is Chuck’s faithful sidekick, Morgan Grimes, played by 5’7″ (seriously) Joshua Gomez. I know, I know, I know. The adorkable, diminutive Gomez is way out of his league, but for those who like an extreme longshot to bet on/cum over, he’s totally worth a second look as an undercover, NHB wildcat.


Nerd Lust

Nerds frequently do it for me. Not all nerds, not all the time. But frequently. Squarehippies has a nice running feature on dorks, as in “Adorkable,” but I’m drawing a fine distinction here in saying 1) not all nerds are dorks, and 2) Squarehippies’ inclusion of Ryan Reynolds as a dork tells me that we must be talking about very, very different things.

I recently threw Christopher Gorham into a wrestling ring in my gay wrestling fiction. He’s a fantastically hot nerd who brought some surprisingly hot moves and attitude into his battle with Jerry O’Connell. The skinny nerd with glasses who can rip open his shirt and reveal an entirely lickable chest is guaranteed a recurring role in my imagination.
While I haven’t written this match up yet, I’m entranced by the tasty, nerdy combination of Elijah Wood and Daniel Radcliffe. Now that Daniel is 20 years old, my socially appropriate restraint in identifying him as an object of lust is officially unrestrained. Together with Elijah, they’re both gorgeously short, skinny, self-conscious nerds (have you seen either of them in an interview!?) who I’d like to see in a sincere throw down turned body worship.
Zachary Levi is borderline nerd, but worth the mention. He plays nerd nicely, but I suspect if you scratch the surface, you’d find a cocky face with more than a healthy self-esteem. I think that writing him into a wrestling match would offer an opportunity to see Zach’s true nature come out, and between you and me, I strongly suspect that nature could include some over confidence in need of a healthy dose of suffering.
Kal Penn is nearly too hip to be a nerd, but I include him anyway. He’s too busy helping the Obama administration undo a little of the damage done to the world from the previous administration, so I’m not expecting him to show up in a wrestling match anytime soon. But he’s clearly smart and sexy, and that’ll get you at least halfway to full on certification as a nerd with the key to my heart (and crotch).
Finally, this shot of Nicholas Lemons makes me just a little dizzy (in a good way). The nerd glasses on the hardbody with ink is so completely hot. Nicholas hardly qualifies as a nerd, but this particular look makes me feel just a little faint. It could be the cold I’m still recovering from, but I think it’s the hotness of Nicholas channeling his (very) inner nerd that’s rearranging my blood flow.
