Lovelies, good morning and happy Monday! Over the last couple of years, both Marvel and DC comics have really stepped their game up with release of both comic-based television series and films. No doubt, comic enthusiasts are excited for this major move but so are we over at HeyMikeyATL because these casting directors find some of the hottest men and women in Hollywood to portray the characters we already know and love and today, I’m sharing my eye crush with you all. Actor Mehcad Brooks, who portrays Jimmy Olsen on the hit new series “Super Girl” is our #CelebrityCrush for today. Follow the jump to see why we’re crushing on Mehcad.
Mehcad Brooks is no stranger to our eyes. In fact, we first fell in love with him back in the early 2000s when he guest starred in an episode of “One on One”. Ever since then, we’ve been following Mehcad’s career from the time he spent on the now cancelled ABC drama series “Desperate Housewives”, his recurring roles on BET’s “The Game”, USA Network’s “Necessary Roughness” and “True Blood” on HBO all the way to his current work on the CBS drama “Supergirl”.
CBS’s new series “Supergirl” is based heavily on the DC Comics character Supergirl, and stars Melissa Benoist in the title role (as Kara Zor-El). Supergirl is a costumed superheroine who is the biological cousin to Superman and one of the last surviving Kryptonians. In this series, Mehcad portrays, Jimmy Olsen, a former ‘Daily Planet’ photographer who moves to National City and becomes the new art director for his former colleague, Cat Grant, at CatCo Worldwide Media. He is a potential love interest for Kara (Supergirl). Among his reasons for moving across the country include his breakup with his fiancée, Lucy Lane, and keeping an eye on the newly revealed Supergirl for Superman. While working at the Daily Planet, James received the Pulitzer Prize for taking the first photograph of Superman. In the second season, James will become Guardian.
We can’t wait to see Mehcad become Guardian!
And can we take a moment to admire and acknowledge his physique? Let us not forget that Mehcad Brooks is a former Calvin Klein model and there is nothing sexier than a man in some Calvins!
