A Beginner’s Guide to Alan Ritchson

Alan RichsonThe biggest movie out this week is ‘Catching Fire’, the second installment of ‘The Hunger Games’.

We couldn’t help but notice the very handsome Alan Ritchson who plays the character of Gloss. If you think you’ve seen him before, you probably have spotted him in one of his former roles or the plethora of underwear adverts he’s featured in.


In the TV series ‘Smallville’ Ritchson appeared as Aquaman.

Abercrombie & Fitch Advertisements

Ritchson got his career start as a model appearing in campaigns for fashion label Abercrombie & Fitch as well as working as an underwear model for online store International Jock and N2N.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

For his next role Ritchson will be practically unrecognisable, he’s filming the role of Raphael in a reboot of the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ franchise.

Blue Mountain State

Ritchson looks pretty striking in a grid-iron uniform, he played the lead role in the TV series ‘Blue Mountain State’ for three years where his character Thad was known for his homoerotic hazing rituals with other team members.


Ritchson’s queerest role though is as Tripp, the love interest for 90210 regular Teddy Montgomery.  Check out their memorable scene below.
