The miserable cities we’ve tolerated all winter long are finally thawing. You’ve got delusional dreams of a container garden dancing in your head and your allergies are ruining your life again – ie. it’s f*cking spring at last and know what else that means? Men are taking their tops off everywhere! In this post specifically, those men are Ryan Gosling and Channing Tatum.

Ok so maybe this video actually has nothing do to with spring, and was probably shot like a year ago in Thailand when he was working on Only God Forgives, BUT in the spirit of the season please scroll down and click play to watch Ryan Gosling and director Nicholas Winding Refn (lol @ that name) talk about sex and violence. That Ryan doesn’t even really speak during the clip only makes him hotter -- he just gives some kind of “hey girl, my d*ck is magic” smirk and listens to his boss wax about different kinds of climaxes. It cuts away to shots of Ryan kickboxing, which is useful if you’re the kind of person who wants to fantasize about Ryan defending you from gangsters, shirtless, and then doing you hard in a Thai ghetto...or whatever, I don’t know what you guys are into.

Then there’s the trailer for this summer’s Channing Tatum action movie that might as well be billed as starring Channing Tatum and Channing Tatum’s Arms. This is not exactly a “tops off” situation, but he’s got no sleeves, is covered in sweat while saving America and that’s hot enough for me. The movie itself actually looks pretty good, for your typical campy nonsensical-over-the-top-patriot-explosion-fest. It stars Channing as a White House hostage turned hero who teams up with President Jamie Foxx (lol @ that political reality) to take on the terrorists. Channing’s real life is slightly less action packed, but just as fun to look at, so we’ve also included some pics of him jogging. Nice to know he’s got to work for those guns.

Speaking of working for it, if you’re interested in feeling some kind of weird ambivalent arousal this afternoon, click here to see pictures of Ian Ziering doing crossfit to get ready for his gig with Chippendales. Steve Sanders is ripped, y’all.
