#CelebrityCrush-Jack Kesy

Good Moooooorning Loves!!! & happy Monday to ya!!!

I have a special treat for you guys so I’m hoping you can handle this! Today’s #CelebrityCrush is not only one of Hollywood’s Hottest Leading Men but he’s also a former Marine and you all know how I just swoon for a man in a uniform. It’s no secret that he’s hot, fine and all about his lines, actor Jack Kesy is our latest Bae!

While Jack Kesy is probably best known for his roles in “The Strain” and TNT’s newest hit series “Claws” starring Niecy Nash and Karrueche Tran, he is set to take over the Entertainment industry by storm. He already has two high profile films set to be relased in 2018 and he’s surely going to end 2017 with a bang, starring in “Baywatch”, “Blood Brother”, “Deathwish” and “Hot Summer Night”. We love a man who keeps busy and best believe, Mr. Kesy is surely fitting that bill.

One of the biggest notches Jack Kesy could add onto his belt just may be his upcoming role in “Deadpool 2” which is said to be his Breakout role. While there are few details known about the character as of yet, many forums have speculated that Kesy will play the role of Black Tom, a villain who can manipulate energy through plants. “Deadpool” is one of the most popular and talked-about superhero movies ever made and  given its huge success, fans have been going absolutely crazy on their numerous platforms for any news about its upcoming sequel.

Because Jack Kesy’s acting resume is not as long as some veteran actors vying for a role in movies like Deadpool or on a hit show like Claws, many fans wonder if he can pull it off but we have faith in him. During the pilot for “Claws”, Kesy made a guest appearance. The producers of the show were so impressed with his work that this singular performance earned him a regular role on the series. (How’s that for a ‘newbie’ Hollywood?!)

Jack Kesy, we’ve got our eyes on you!

Cory Hardrict (@coryhardrict)– Destined for Greatness!

Cory Hardrict silently dominated the 2016 independent film festival circuit with his film, “Destined”.

In addition to playing dual roles in the film, Hardrict also served as executive producer. Initially, Hardrict was producing the film and not starring in it, but the director felt like he was the perfect fit for the leading man. Destined follows two separate paths a young man takes after he comes to the fork in the road of life. The film is about choices and how consequences to actions can result in a lifetime of differences. “One character is an architect—sometimes in that world you have other people that make decisions for you. He is dealing with gentrification which results in  him making a decision for an entire
community. The parallel character is a drug Lord desperately trying to save his son. It’s a real life thing two paths and parallels,” Hardrict explains. “Destined” quickly became the project to beat, garnering eight awards at twelve festivals throughout 2016. “I knew from what we shot the work was great. After you shoot it and put it together, the rest is in God’s hands. The success has been a blessing, but the mission is to get it to the world,” Hardrict shares.

Hardrict enjoyed a number of films released last year, including most recently “Spectral” an action thriller purchased by Netflix, but much like the message in his film “Destined”, Hardrict is both strategic and selective with his career. His brooding yet unforgettable presence along with his selective-ness when choosing roles are just a few of the reasons Hardrict has been compared to the legendary Denzel Washington. When asked about the constant comparison, Hardrict is humbled. “Denzel is a living legend, so I just shake my head. He is like a God, he is the best actor on the planet. I got a lot of work to do before I could come anywhere close to that. He has a lot of strength and power. He’s been consistent. Antoine Fuqua was the first person to say I reminded him of a young Denzel. It made me want to step my game up, those are heavy words.” Besides his on camera likeness to Denzel, Hardrict is also an outspoken family man, attributing his success to the title of fatherhood he enjoys with wife Tia Mowry. “Becoming a husband and father made my heart open up more because I love my wife and son to death. It’s been fun, nothing but joy. It’s made me a better man and better actor.”

Ricardo Hoyos

Good Morning my loves and Happy Bae Day to ya!

So I’ve officially been here in Georgia for about two weeks and so far I love, I’m happy that after all these years I finally made the move I had been talking about.

Today is Monday which over here at HeyMikeyATL and you all know what that means, we’re casting a spotlight of one of Hollywood’s best leading men – actor Ricardo Hoyos of Degrassi is our #CelebrityCrush for today!

Ricardo Hoyos is a 21-year old Canadian actor best known for his role as Zig Novak on Degrassi. Ricardo’s role as Zig is probably most memorable because for some reason Zig seemed to always have trouble following him. He has said in a past interview that if he could work with one former Degrassi cast member it would be Shane Kippel who played the legendary Spinner Mason (I lowkey had a crush on him back in the day.)

When it comes to laughs we will always look to our favorite comedians. Sometimes, though, the best man for a laugh is a woman–a comedienne–Niecy Nash! Niecy has been killing not only the comedy scene, but acting as well starring in series like; NYPD BlueJudging AmyRebaGirlfriendsCSI: Crime Scene Investigation and ERLater she starred in Comedy Central’s 911, hosted Clean House on the Style Network, and as of last month stars in TNT’s newest hit series, Claws!

As you can see Neicy Nash has a body of work that is only outmatched by her own. That is why she is this week’s Celebrity Crush!

As aforementioned Niecy is currently starring in Claws, a new series centered on a group of nail salon technicians who “clean” money for drug lord, “Uncle Daddy.” (Dean Norris) In the series Nash is Desna  “Des” Simms, a shop owner determined to expand her business, look after her friends, brother, and worker; while trying to cover up a murder alongside new girl/rival Virginia Loc (Karreuche Tran). Des is one tough “Cookie”and yes we mean right up there with Ms. Lyon herself! The series is already making waves with fans and most of that has to do with Niecy’s amazing performance!

Now, as for Niecy and this SNATCHED body we have seen courtesy to a few outfits on Claws all we can say is WE ARE HERE FOR IT! The girl looks amazing! Niecy has always been a naturally curvy woman, but when combined with a little push up bra she will give most girls in their twenties a run for their money. It sucks that she is no longer on the market, but we are sure her current husband, Jay Tucker, is enjoying all the “benefits” that come to being married to this bodacious babe!
