…When Soap Hunk Joshua Morrow Got Shirtless on the Basketball Court

Joshua Morrow has been playing Nic Newman on The Young and the Restless since 1994. I have never been a fan of the show or of Morrow. He always looked like a scrawny little punk to me.

Well, thanks to Tivo and the magic that is SoapNet’s “same day episodes at night,” I have had the opportunity to check in on Joshua, who has most decidely… shall we say… matured.

Okay, first off, I have to say I have enjoyed being unemployed this summer as the number of hot daytime guys taking off their shirts on basketball courts seems to have really taken a jump over previous years. As for Joshua, the facial hair is something I’m usually not fond of, but it’s definitely working on him. Gives him a “good guy… mostly” look. And check out the back and shoulder definition too. Girl’s been getting her shrugs on back in that dressing room.

One time I asked a shirtless bartender at The Abbey who had just about the same build as Joshua’s, “Hey man, what do I have to do to get a body like that?” He looked me up and down, shook his head and said, “it’s too late.”

A sad final note. The fair Joshua is, alas, as straight as they come. He’s got a wife and two kids.

God, I miss the nineties, when all soap hunks were gay and had poofy moussed-up hair with highlights and wore pink.

Or maybe that was just me.

  1. I think you have to dig deeper to find the gay ones. Being buff and hunky isn’t a sure indicator these days. These metrosexuals are really making our gaydar work extra hard. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Ha, back when I watched The Young and the Restless for a few summers, I remember Nicholas being played by a little boy. Next thing I knew Joshua Morrow had stepped in, and I was like, gee, puberty sure kicked in. 😉

    Well, he could still be gay. Even if he’s not, why not go for it anyway. I fail to understand why gay men must only pursue gay men. Its macho straight men where it all begins.
