Read the latest on handsome actor Alan Ritchson, here on OUT magazine. Ritchson first got his start in 2004 as a contestant on the third season of American Idol, being one of the many singers in the top 87 contestants (he even did a sexy strip tease for judge Paula Abdul!). Soon after, he got his first television role in the hit show Smallville, and later landed his most-known role as Thad in "Blue Mountain State". Besides BMS, Ritchson has also scored roles in many films, his most famous ones being Raphael in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and Gloss in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."
