Thom wrote to request today's Slap - thanks for writing, Thom! - and I must say that I'm more than happy to oblige this (and most...) requests. But I confess that British actor Henry Cavill is truly something special and he was well on his way to being Slapped even if he'd never been requested.
I first really noticed Henry as he played Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk in Showtime's version of The Tudors. You'll notice, if you follow the link to the Duke of Suffolk, that there's a portrait of the actual Duke. He looks very little like Henry Cavill. Frankly, I'd much prefer Henry's version of the Duke, to the one on Wikipedia.
Henry has recently raised his profile quite a bit by landing the role of Clark Kent / Superman in the next reboot of the Superman franchise, Man of Steel. A few pictures of him on set have leaked out here and there - and WOW! - he certainly does look super.
He's been in a few other things, but I've never seen him in anything but the Tudors. But that's OK - he looked so fabulous in that, it would be hard to top. Let me know what you think!
P.S. Yes, I'm aware that I have a few duplicate pictures after the jump - but I don't have the time to deal with them right now, and what's a little extra hotness among friends??
Update: Scot is quite right - the #20 picture was definitely Raul Bova (who, by the way, will be getting his own Slap soon...). Thanks!
