100% manly masc man Russell Tovey, who was in Looking and Being Human, is currently on Broadway in A View From The Bridge. There’s a point in the play when the audience gets several eyefuls of Russell Tovey’s nipples and cum gutters after he takes his shirt off. Well, the theater should start selling smelling salts at the bar because Russell’s body is giving people the major vapors.

They claim that Russell’s shirtless butch manliness was too much for the audience member to take!

Tovey’s washboard abs can be seen onstage eight times a week. Just remember to breathe deeply.

And I don’t know why I’m writing words, because I doubt you’re reading them since you’re passed out on the floor after the sight of Russell Tovey’s hotness knocked you out. I know how you feel. I have that picture open on my desktop as I put this post together and I’ve passed out five times while writi
