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."
