Charlie Hunnam from British Queer as folk... is way hot!
I watched the whole series of the Uk queer as folk and wow Charlie Hunnam is way hot! He plays a gay guy and by the end is ruling Manchester... like he would!
So looked into some stuff about him... he was discovered while goofing off in a shoe store in his native Newcastle, Hunnam was quickly cast on the BBC series "Byker Grove", playing a long-locked model with a recurring role. From here he was cast on the BBC teen series "Microsoap" and then landed the co-starring role on Channel 4's "Queer as Folk" (1999). Hunnam brought Nathan from shy, curious innocent to an increasingly self-aware and determined man about town in the initial eight episodes of the controversial series about gay life and reprised the role in the two-hour sequel "Queer as Folk 2" (2000). As Nathan, Hunnam played such an integral role in the groundbreaking series that he became something of a role model for gay youth. The influence of the series was so far-reaching that the young actor was asked to participate in a parliamentary debate about the discriminatory British age of consent laws.--CJ
What he is up to now-
Charlie's Children of Men
English actor Charlie Hunnam is in talks to join Clive Owen and Julianne Moore in "Children of Men," based on the book by mystery writer P.D. James. The Universal Pictures project is set in the near future, when mankind has lost the ability to reproduce, and the world is rocked by the news that the world's youngest person -- who is 18 -- has died. Hunnam will play a young rebel trying to incite chaos. Alfonso Cuaron will direct.
