I have to say that I wasn’t that interested in the TV show Arrow, and then I saw the poster above, and suddenly my interest was piqued. Who knows why?
Stephen Amell is quite the hottie, and he’s also not averse to playing guy. Indeed his first screen role was playing a spinning instructor in the US version of Queer As Folk. He also popped up as Adam in a couple of episodes of the uber-gay vampire series, Dante’s Cover.
Since then he’s appeared in the likes of Rent-A-Goalie, CSI: Miami, NCIS: Los Angeles, Vampire Diaries, 90210 and New Girl, although he’s probably most recognisable from his recurring roles as Jason in Hung, Scott Becker in Private Practice and Nick in Heartland.
Now he’s got the title role in Arrow, playing Oliver Queen (who despite the name isn’t gay), aka the comic book her, Green Arrow. Whether the series will succeed is yet to be seen, but Amell is certainly a very sexy presence at its heart. The show starts in both the US and the UK in October.
