So this week my Men Candy are not models but actors; actually one of them is a model tryig to become an actor, but he is young, he has time ;-) So, what linked them together? (did you notice that my triplet of men candy always have something in common?). Cillian, Steve and Colton played a gay role (in a movie or in an editorial) but they are not gay, better it doesn't matter to them if they are or they are not gay, probably they would prefer for people to judge them for being a good or a bad actor, not for who they sleep with. In particular, I thought a lot if posting Colton Haynes' pictures, truth be told I even wondered if they are real, he seems so much younger in them, but then I thought, if he did them, he probably had a reason. So enjoy!

Cillian Murphy (born 25 May 1976) is an Irish film and theatre actor. He is often noted by critics for his chameleonic performances in diverse roles and distinctive blue eyes.

A native of Cork, Murphy began his performing career as a rock musician. After turning down a record deal, he made his professional acting debut in the play Disco Pigs in 1996. He went on to star in Irish and UK film and stage productions throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s, first coming to international attention in 2003 as the hero in the post-apocalyptic film 28 Days Later. Murphy's best-known roles are as villains in two 2005 blockbusters: the Scarecrow in the superhero film Batman Begins, and Jackson Rippner in the thriller Red Eye. Next came two contrasting, widely acclaimed starring roles: his Golden Globe Award-nominated performance as transgender outcast "Kitten" in 2005's Breakfast on Pluto and a turn as a 1920s Irish revolutionary in the 2006 Palme d'Or winner, The Wind That Shakes the Barley. In 2009, Murphy stars in Perrier's Bounty, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

A resident of London since 2001, Murphy often works in or near the city and has expressed no desire to move to Hollywood. In mid-2004, Murphy married his long-time live-in girlfriend, Yvonne McGuinness, an artist whom he met in 1996 at one of his rock band's shows. The couple live in northwest London with their two young sons, born in 2005 and 2007. Murphy is known for being reluctant to speak about his personal life. He frequently gives interviews about his work but does not do TV chat show appearances where actors customarily share information about their private lives. He does not have a stylist or a personal publicist, travels without an entourage, and often attends premieres alone. Shy and private, Murphy professes a lack of interest in the celebrity scene, finding the red carpet experience "a challenge... and not one I want to overcome." He intentionally practices a lifestyle that will not interest the tabloids: "I haven't created any controversy, I don't sleep around, I don't go and fall down drunk." Murphy is friends with fellow Irish actors Colin Farrell and Liam Neeson, looking up to the latter like a "surrogate movie dad." But primarily, Murphy's close friends are those he made before becoming a star.

Though raised Catholic before turning agnostic in his teens, Murphy ultimately became an atheist after researching his role as a nuclear physicist/astronaut in the science fiction film Sunshine. He is a longtime vegetarian, not due to any moral objection to the killing of animals, but because of qualms about unhealthy agribusiness practices. Murphy participated in the 2007 Rock the Vote Ireland campaign targeting young voters for the general election. He has also campaigned for the rights of the homeless with the organization Focus Ireland.


Steve Sandvoss (born June 23, 1980 in New York City) is an American actor. Stephen James Sandvoss grew up in suburban New York City. He attended the Saint Thomas Choir School in Manhattan and The Taft School in Connecticut where he was a member of the rowing team. He went on to study at Harvard University and graduated, cum laude, in 2002.

At Harvard, he was active in the artistic community, pursuing amateur photography, studying poetry and American prose, and often choosing edgier roles in student-written plays as well as in such classics as Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and Julius Caesar and Bertolt Brecht's Galileo and Ba'al.

In addition, Sandvoss directed readings of his own work at Harvard and wrote criticism and essays for several undergraduate periodicals. Steve was also a member of the prestigious a cappella ensemble, the Harvard Opportunes. During this time, Sandvoss commuted frequently to New York City for professional acting and modeling gigs.

Sandvoss's break as an actor came when he landed the role of a football star competing against Will Estes in the NBC drama series American Dreams. His other television roles include appearances on Dr. Vegas, Nip/Tuck, The Inside, Cold Case, E-Ring and Grey's Anatomy.

Sandvoss made his feature-film debut in the 2003 independent film Latter Days. His second feature film was 2005's Rumor Has It, starring Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Costner, Mark Ruffalo and Shirley MacLaine.

Sandvoss was cast in the short film Waning Moon, directed by Luca Colombo, which debuted in August 2006 at a Swiss Film Festival in Lugano. The film went on to many other festivals and won "Best Film Screenplay" at the Beverly Hills Film Festival in 2007. In June 2006, Sandvoss began filming the horror film Buried Alive, in the role of "Danny". The film was released on DVD in October 2007. In late 2006, it was announced that Steve would reunite with Director/Writer C. Jay Cox in a supporting role in the film Kiss The Bride, released in 2008.

In May 2007, Steve took on the role of Mason Michael Finch in the indie film Fling (formerly titled Lie to Me), filmed on location in Kansas City, Missouri. The film had its premiere on April 26, 2008 at the Newport Beach Film Festival during the same time frame that Steve was filming a pilot for the Sci-Fi Channel, "Revolution". It was announced in November, 2008 that Steve would appear in the independent film Exquisite Corpse.

Sandvoss currently resides in Los Angeles.

He has also appeared in the My Chemical Romance Music video entitled "I Don't Love You" as the male lead in which he was painted black from head to toe.

He made his film debut in "Freedom Calls," and guest starred in the hit shows "The Hills"; "CSI Miami"; "Pushing Daisies"; "Privileged" and "Melrose Place". In December 2008 he filmed the Hallmark TV Movie "Always and Forever". The movie also stars Dean McDermott, Barbara Eden and Rena Sofer.

He is also starring in a new SHOWTIME series called "LOOK" that is supposed to air in Feb 2010.

Colton recently was at the center of gossip after posing for the magazine XY and being immortalized while kissing another boy.

To the rumors that singled him out as gay, he replied: "It’s fun to listen what people think of me. Let them say! Work is work and I don’t disown anything I've done in the past."

In addition to be beautiful, Colton is also involved in a charity organization, he participated in the "About Face Book Project”, a project dedicated to the aid of children with facial deformities.
