Anyone watch the episode of ‘Chuck‘ where Ryan McPartlin takes his shirt off? Wait… Never mind. That happens in almost every episode, but it always seems like a pleasant surprise when it happens. Doesn’t it?

If you hadn’t already guessed it, McPartlin used to be an Abercrombie & Fitch model. A lot of guys look like they have, but he really did. That’s why NBC has him taking his shirt off every chance they get, and we don’t blame them.

His character on the show is named Captain Awesome because McPartlin is so totally awesome. Let’s get serious, he’s the main reason why a lot of us watch the series in the first place. He’s had a slew of one-time appearances and made-for-TV movie projects, but ‘Chuck’ has finally allowed this Adonis to enter our homes through television every week. What a beautiful thing.
