#ManCandyMonday Inspiration for Christopher from THE CLAIMED

So we’re lucky to have some Man Candy on the cover for THE CLAIMED and a lot of you have been asking who is the inspiration for the dark and very sexy Shadow Hunter hero Christopher Sombrosa.

I have to say the inspiration was a mix of two actors, Eddie Cibrian and D.J. Cotrona. This is a picture of Eddie looking rather dark and dangerous, just as I picture Christopher when he’s angry and ready to blast someone with one of his Hunter power orbs.

But Christopher also has a lighter side and for that boyish part of him, D.J. Cotrona was the inspiration. D.J. played a detective on the now cancelled Detroit 1-8-7. Shame since it was a fine show! But fans of D.J. will soon see him in GI JOE: RETALIATION with two other pieces of Man Candy, namely The Rock and Bruce Willis! Can’t wait.

So here’s a picture of DJ playing FLINT in the movie. Sexy! Hope you enjoyed today’s Man Candy Monday and another behind the scenes look at THE CLAIMED.
