It’s that time of week again: #ManCrushMonday or #MCM for short. This is the time of the week where I will choose one guy that I’ve gushed at over the years at one time or another and go a little more in depth than just his stunning good looks. How is this different from my Guilty Pleasure posts? Well, it’s really not. The only difference is I can choose to do a Guilty Pleasure post any day of the week (depending on my level of thirst), but I can only do one #MCM post a week since Monday only comes once a week.
This week my #MCM is: Matt Barr. I first had the pleasure of viewing Matt on the short-lived CBS series Harper’s Island. He played Christopher Sullivan, the best man who was later betrayed (I don’t want to give away too many details just in case someone reading wants to catch it sometime later).
I don’t know what drew me to him: His piercing blue eyes, his blonde hair, his muscular physique or his perfect white teeth with a killer smile. What can I say I’ve always had a thing for blond-haired, blue eyed boys.
Born on Valentine’s Day 1984 in Allen, Texas, Barr’s family later moved to Fairview, Texas where he was active in the plays and musical theater program at his Alma Mater, Allen High School. During his senior year, he learned of an audition for a part in the film Friday Night Lights. Although he didn’t end up landing the part due to behind-the-scene drama, he made such an impression that he was later offered the lead role in the film Levelland.
A year and a half later, he moved to LA where he landed a role on the medical drama ER. Since then, Barr has continued to land roles roles in film and television year after year including such film roles as on American Pie: Band Camp, Ten Inch Hero, The House Bunny and Pedro as well as television roles such as on Gossip Girl, Hellcats, Sleepy Hollow and The Hatfields and McCoys.
You can catch him in some of his new projects this year such as the TV movie, The Interestings as well as Undrafted which has him starring alongside Supergirl star, Tyler Hoechlin. There’s more to Barr than just his boy next door looks (although that part doesn’t hurt).
He’s got kind of a flat ass, but he can’t be perfect. Besides what he lacks in the back, he more than makes up for in the front (and, no, I don’t mean there). I’m talking in terms of his face and body. Get your mind out the gutter!
