Stephen Amell's Obsession with 'Hung' Socks


E!'s Marc Malkin reports that Stephen Amell, the former Vampire Diaries hottie who now has a barely-clad gig on Hung, has a slight obsession with the sock-like garments he has to cover his manhood with when he does a scene:

"I get super naked, so I made a joke that I was going to take them and nail them to the wall of my apartment," the hunky 30-year-old tells me. "Can you just imagine someone looking at them and saying, 'What is that?' "

Amell, who played werewolf Brady on Vampire Diaries, joined the show this season as a new male hooker who threatens to cut into Ray's business because he may be open to male clients.

"The most awkward thing from Hung is that in my audition, in a boardroom with a lot of executives watching, I had to simulate sex with a someone that I've just met for the first time. Once I got through that, I could get through anything."

On the other hand, it seems like he doth protest too much: "When you're wearing one, you'd almost rather be naked because it's kind of embarrassing. You're just standing there in this thing and it's just super awkward."

One more shot of Amell getting horizontal, from Episode 3, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I admit, no idea who he is, but good looking and very nice abs in the 2nd pic.

  2. I wonder if he's at all related to Robbie Amell (who was also born in Toronto, and who is also incredibly, incredibly hot)?

  3. you could auction off your "socks" for charity. that would be one win/win possibility.

  6. HUNG is definitely my favorite show on American TV right now...this 3d season is proving to be very entertaining!

  7. good thing he's so pretty, because he sounds dumber than a box of rocks.

    but not as dumb (or pretty) as matt bomer who, as reported here, put his g-string on backwards. Actually, it's inconceivable that anyone can be sooo stupid as put a thong on backwards, so i think adorable matt (or a really bad publicist) made the story up.

  9. He also played the original version of Adam in DANTE'S COVE season 1...

  10. He also plays a quarterback who's close to Alan Ritchson's character on Blue Mountain State; the subtext is that Thad has a thing for this guy.

  11. @ATOMIC: They're cousins. Helluva gene pool in that family, isn't it?

  12. Wow, in the "horizontal" photo he's got a real DiCaprio thing going for him - only better.

  13. He's on twitter (@amellywood) and from that and this, he seems incredibly douchey and dumb.

    Not interested.

  14. He also has the title role on Arrow. And each episode has at least one gratuitous shirtless scene.

  15. Now famous with CW's Arrow, gorgeous Stephen is shirtless on every episode...Yay!

  16. Admittedly, he is one fine piece of hunkiness! Now that he is staring in "Arrow" I can't wait until his PR team has him doing the PDA with his female co-star or, better yet, have him 'involved' with some big name female celeb (make that 'beard')! Why? well, can't have these hunks being w/o a female inte4rest because people will start 'speculating' as to his true sexual leanings (ha).

  17. How about marriage to an actress/model (Cassandra Jean last year) and a baby daughter (earlier this month). It seems like you're the only one speculating about his orientation.

  18. @ WIRRRN :

    yes he did; but the second version of Adam in Dante's Cove was very hot also !!!
