Man Candy Monday: Penn Badgley


Happy Man Candy Monday! Thanks for stopping by. I hope my choice, Penn Badgley, gets your week off to a great start. Although this Gossip Girl actor is a bit young, for me, he's still swoon-worthy. Then again he's only three years younger ;)

I think it's the nerd in Dan that does it for me. His character has always appealed to me. Do you agree?

Mmmmm, yes, please. Although I tend to prefer Chase Crawford, he is seriously attractive.

Too young for me, but definitely yummy. I loved him in Easy A, and I'm tickled that he grew up both in the area I was born in, and in my current city. Yay! :D

Claire Kiefer said...

I've never seen Gossip Girl (though I know I'd love it), but I agree that he is cuuuuuuute! He looks a little like James Franco in that last pic. Hot! I love it when we agree :)

Ann said...

Dan has always been my favorite guy character on Gossip Girl, it's the nerdyness for me too! I also loved Penn in Easy A. He's so cute!

He is a cutie!!

Christina said...

I like him a lot. I thought he was better in Easy A than Gossip Girl though, I liked seeing him in a funny role. I still haven't seen The Stepfather, but it's in my Netflix queue. Good choice. He grew up about 10 minutes from me!

Had no idea who this guy was, but he is good looking!

What a cutie. Nothing wrong with a good looking dark haired boy. He's not my favorite actor though...

Miss Angie said...

He has a lovely jaw line. Yeah, he's a hottie, good choice!

Meghan said...

Oooh! Good choice! I love Penn - and I agree! Part of the allure is the nerd in Dan! :)

Allison said...

He's definitely a hottie (though I am not pleased he was reportedly cast as Jeff Buckley - I don't know if he can pull that!). He was so, so cute and perfect in Easy A.
Love this!

Penn B. is starting to grow on me after I saw him on Easy A with Emma Stone. His acting was nice and subtle.

Cheers for the man candy! Rambles with Reese

I’ve always had a thing for Dan Humphrey and also liked Penn in Easy A. I never knew he was born in Baltimore. Reading the fun facts is my favorite!
