Parks and Recreation actress and comedian Mara Marini puts two of Hollywood’s sexiest heroes head to head in our weekly debate and asks you to decide: Who’s hotter?!
While growing up, I always preferred my brother’s G.I. Joe to my Ken Doll… and Channing is the epitome of the sculpted action figure. Muscular, manly, macho… and those moves!!! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve played the Ginuwine scene from Magic Mike on loop. (If you don’t know what I’m referring to, you are missing out on cinematic gold. I strongly suggest you rent the movie and/or immediately watch that scene on YouTube.) Not only is he a dreamboat, but he is hilarious, talented and seems to be so indubitably in love with his wife Jenna Dewan Tatum. She must have been a Mother Theresa-type in a past life… and is quite possibly the luckiest woman on earth.
As much as I adore Channing, Henry sits right next to him on the I-Wish-He-Was-My-Boyfriend Totem Pole. I have adored him ever since drooling over his character, Charles Brandon, on The Tudors. He has a certain je ne sais quoi… and I had a feeling (just like the rest of the world) that he would be the next big thing. I was thrilled when I found out he would be playing Superman. Some real “manly men” finally taking the stage! I don’t know about you, but I think he would be an excellent choice for the next James Bond. Channing has the moves, but Henry has that English accent! It’s a tough choice, kids.
