Another hunk and his sack

(Not about language.)

Following on Alain Delon and Victor Webster, I move to hunky Adrian Paul:

Adrian Paul Hewett (born 29 May 1959), better known as Adrian Paul, is an actor best known for his role on the television series Highlander: The Series as Duncan MacLeod. (link)

In Highlander, Paul spent a good bit of time shirtless or nearly so. But in the tv series Tracker, he started out as an apparition in nothing but his underwear, showing off his body and his equipment. Hunk City.

From the Wikipedia entry:

Tracker is a 2001 Canadian science fiction television series starring Adrian Paul and Amy Price-Francis. The series is based on a short story by Gil Grant and Jeannine Renshaw. The pilot episode and two other episodes were edited into the film Alien Tracker [2003].

Tracker is the story of Daggon, an alien life form who lands on Earth from the planet Cirron in a bid to capture 218 prisoners who had escaped from the planet SAR TOP in the Migar Solar System in the form of “life forces” then took over various human identities. He lands in an abandoned field in the outskirts of Chicago where he takes on the form of an underwear model and takes the name “Cole” from the underwear ad he sees on a billboard. He later meets Mel Porter, a Chicago bar owner who has an outgoing British bartender that she inherited along with her grandmother’s police bar. Though she is suspicious at first, she gradually comes to accept Cole and lets him stay, offering him some of her ex-boyfriend’s clothes. He has a device to capture the life forces and contain them in spheres, and once his mission is over, he has to take them back to SAR TOP.

Yes, it’s profoundly silly, but still engaging, thanks to its two leads. Here’s Daggon as he first appears, somewhat bewildered, in his underwear:

and then, with a prominent moose knuckle, as he’s being examined by the Feds:

Mr. Goodhunk.
