Shirtless Man of the Week: Steven Strait of 'Magic City'

Steven Strait doesn't focus on his shirtless--OK, pantsless too--scenes in the new Starz drama "Magic City." When I asked the actor, who plays womanizing bad boy Stevie Evans in the series that premiered April 6, how he feels about being the show's heartthrob, he laughed and gave me an "aw shucks" pause. "Oh man. I don't know. I mean, you know, to be honest with you, I really wasn't thinking about it as I was shooting it," he said, deftly deflecting the question. "And, you know, I wanted to just portray this guy getting knocked off his pedestal and falling in love as accurately as possible and falling into a very dangerous situation for himself and his family." I respect the answer; Strait does a wonderful job showing Stevie's bewilderment at falling in love for the first time. But we here at RedEye not only appreciate talent and brains; we enjoy the brawn, too. That's why Strait, who by the way is married to "John Carter" actress Lynn Collins, is the latest Shirtless Man of the Week. Congrats! Curt Wagner, RedEye's Show Patrol
