We believe that star quality underwear belongs in the spotlight, so we rounded up our top 10 men of Broadway underwear photos worthy of a standing ovation. We’ve got everything from ripped chorus boys and breakout stars, to Hollywood celebs stripping down to their skivvies (or less!).
Sebastian Stan, our first pick (seen above in Picnic) certainly falls into this last category. News of the action film star’s extreme abs rippled through Times Square this season as he spent most of the play shirtless. We leaned in to catch a glimpse of his 1950’s style underpants, but alas we were blinded by the light reflecting off his chiseled torso. We’ll settle for the undershirt slung around his neck.
Our other leading men are more forthcoming about showing off their costumes down below. On stage and off, these actors really know how to work a pair of shorts. It’s a very special role they were all born to play.
Check out our top 10 men of Broadway underwear photos, and let us know if we missed any of your favorites!
Cheyenne Jackson: We had to start with this one of Cheyenne, it’s just too good! The hunky Mr. Jackson played a porn star in the short-lived comedy The Performers, and yes those undies are lace-up and animal skin! For more hot Cheyenne Jackson photos, check out our full gallery here.
Andy Mills: The young fit actor can currently be seen on Broadway in Cinderella, in the meantime catch a sneak preview of his black pair of 2xists.
Steven Wenslawski: The Broadway dancer recently strutted his stuff in Broadway Bares’ Winter Burlesque show, here he shows off his beach bum.
Will Swenson: The newly wed Mr. Audra McDonald and former Hair star really has a thing for performing in bikinis. Here he brought along his guitar as well.
Matthew Morrison: Before the Glee star found success on the small screen, he got his start as a dashing man of the stage. We can’t remember seeing a more fun pair of trunks than the ones he’s sporting in this pic from Broadway Bares.
Eric LaJuan Summers: Currently on the boards in Motown, here studly Eric shows off his black pair of 2xists.
Billy Magnussen: The beefy young star sports quite a few different pairs on stage in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, we’re particularly partial to these skimpy running shorts.
Benjamin Walker: Benjamin spends the entire first act of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof sparring on stage with Scarlett Johansson in nothing but a towel. And yes, he’s definitely going commando under there, we checked.
Nick Adams: The former Pricilla, Queen of the Desert star opted for a bright red pair of 2xists for his Broadway Bares on stage strip down.
