It's not that I think stupidity should be punishable by death. I just think we should take the warning labels off of everything and let the problem take care of itself.

Slap! - Chad Allen
Today I'm doing a re-Slap because I think this guy is just fantastic. Chad Allen isn't the best looking guy I've ever featured (we all know who that is...), but he's definitely a hottie - and he's an out actor hottie.

You may remember Chad from what I suppose was hit "biggest" role, playing Matthew Cooper in Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. During the run of the series, Chad was caught on film making out with another guy at some L.A. party. I wasn't a big fan of DQ, so I don't remember the fallout as it pertained to the show; since then, however, he hasn't had many big roles.

But one of the roles he did get was playing "The Gay Detective", Donald Strachey in hereTV's series of films. Starting with Third Man Out, and continuing last year with Shock to the System (also here).

I just finished watching A Shock to the System and I definitely recommend it. This time around, Donald finds himself deep in the bowels of the gay "conversion therapy" world, surrounded by the usual suspects - an overbearing mother (played wonderfully by Morgan Fairchild), a doctor preaching the virtue of allowing yourself to be straight, and Donald's always adoring (and really cute) husband, Tim (Sebastien Spence).

The story strays to the formulaic on occasion, but never goes for the easy (and over-the-top) cliche, like Queer as Folk always did. And murder mysteries, at least for me, always have a built-in air of unbelievability to them, with the noble private investigator gallantly charging to the rescue, but the Strachey models are always enjoyable. Is it for the simple fact of a gay actor playing a gay detective? Probably. And it certainly doesn't hurt that Chad and his husband are quite the tasty morsels of eye candy. Throw in some subtle (and some not-so-subtle) digs at the conversion therapy industry and you have the makings of a really enjoyable film. I highly recommend checking it out. hereTV is available on quite a few cable systems, either for a monthly fee or pay-per-view.

More Chad Allen

Update 02/24/2007: D'oh! I forgot to mention that Chad has been one of the more popular requests I've gotten - Eric, Kevin, Sam, Michael and a couple of anonymous folks have requested him over the past 2 years or so.

Thanks for the Chad slap! He's sexy and I love that his career continues to flourish even after being outed.

I think it is great that Chad is telling his story BUT I think it SHAMEFUL that this cover story did not appear in OUT magazine rather than their sister publication The Advocate. OUT Magazine is notorious for featuring almost exclusively straight actors and models on their covers rather than gay men. I have noticed that when OUT magazine has a poignant story about a gay role model, it is always placed in the inside pages and never makes it onto the cover.

Chad has always been and continues to be one of the cutest guys on tv/movies. And it seems he is getting more handsome with age, i love to see him and its no surprise people still want to see him get 'slapped' =P Yum Yum!!!

Chad is definitely a hottie... I just got Third Man Out from Netflix today.. cant wait to see it tomorrow. I didnt know about Shock To The System until just now.
