Hunky Celebs Take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Ice Bucket Challenge celebs

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a social-media phenomenon that has raised awareness of the neurodegenerative disease to new heights as well as tens of millions of dollars to help fight it. By now, you’ve probably witnessed scores of your own friends dousing themselves with ice-cold water and seen videos of dozens of celebrities doing the same, all while challenging their other famous friends. We’ve gathered up all the hunky celebrity men we could find taking on the challenge and posted the videos for your enjoyment below. We’re still waiting for Channing Tatum to answer Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson‘s call and Chris Hemsworth [UPDATE: He did it and we have it!] to respond to Robert Downey Jr., and we are wondering when someone will finally get around to challenging Hugh Jackman [UPDATE: Done! See below!], Alex O’Loughlin [UPDATE: Done! Watch it below!], Taylor Kinney, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Alexander Skarsgard. And you can’t convince us that David Beckham isn’t working on his own video this very second! [UPDATE: Becks did it! Evidence below!]

You can learn more about this awful disease at the ALS Association website before donating whatever amount you can online at the same link.

In the meantime, enjoy videos from hot athletes and actors and more, including ‘Dancing With the Stars’ hottie Derek Hough, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez and ‘Arrow’ hunk Stephen Amell (pictured above, left to right).

Colin Kaepernick, ESPN Body Issue 2013

ESPN the Magazine has once again made summer an even hotter season, with the release of its 2013 Body Issue. So many ripped, nude athletes with strategically placed sports equipment, so little lubricant!

This year’s magazine features the amazing thighs of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick (above) and the glorious aerial form of Denver Nugget Kenneth Faried, among many others, including 77-year-old golfer Gary Player (!). The issue hits newsstands — and no doubt many nightstands — on Friday.

We’ve taken on the hard task of poring over the issue to find our favorite jocks — as well as mentally cut out those pesky females — to make it a bit easier for you to dive right in. Enjoy these videos of some of hottest photo shoots. Go ahead — as the mag rightly states, “It’s okay to stare.”

We Love ESPN’s Body Issue
