Obnoxiously Objectifying Thursdays Part XV: Colin Hanks

Colin is the acceptable face of Hanks hotness – while it has always felt a bit wrong to fancy Tom, his offspring is seriously fit.

Oh HEY Father Gill from Mad Men who was all tormented by his feelings for Peggy, otherwise known as Tom Hanks’ son, aka Colin Hanks!

Colin is the acceptable face of Hanks hotness – while it has always felt a bit wrong to fancy Tom, his offspring is seriously fit. We like a man who can express all sorts of emotions through the judicious raising of an eyebrow, it’s so… Edwardian.

Hanks Jr's been in TV shows like Dexter, Numb3rs and Band of Brothers (alongside another OOT alumni, Tom Hardy) and films including King Kong and The House Bunny. Rebecca thinks that he looks like a bodyguard in the photo above and all that’s missing is a Bluetooth headset. I said, “If you were the President, wouldn’t you want him protecting you?” to which she anwered “uh-huh.”

I should also add that I was labouring under the misapprehension that Colin was the star of that lovely TV show, Ed, where a high powered lawyer takes over a bowling alley in his hometown (or something), but I checked and actually that was someone totally different - Tom Cavanagh. Oh well.

And here’s a clip of him in sexy priest mode singing away his feelings with a jolly folk song (plus some bonus Jon Hamm action). Enjoy!
