While I know many of this blog’s readers are from the States, I feel it’s my duty to deliver hot, crush-worthy, men from around the world to you on a weekly basis. Today’s crush is British actor Ricky Whittle who is best known for playing Calvin on the Channel Four soap Hollyoaks. While I’ve not yet had the pleasure of seeing the British soap I have had the pleasure of seeing many photos of Ricky shirtless and lemme tell you boys and girls, his body is evidence of God’s good work and presence in the world. Ricky was born in Oldham, United Kingdom in 1981 and is 6’2″ tall. He started out playing sports like football and rugby until an injury sidelined him. He then pursued a degree in criminology before getting into modeling and being featured in a campaign with Reebok. From then he’s continued modeling and has gotten into acting, including roles on Holby City, Strictly Come Dancing, NCIS and VH1′s Single Ladies.
