The Looking actor spoke with NewNowNext about his hesitance to go nude.

When you get home tonight and bundle up next to the fire, enjoy this photo of Matthew Risch channeling some major Burt Reynolds 1972 Cosmo. NewNowNext featured this burly homage to the "Bandit" himself, photographed by Venfield8, a Los Angeles-based artist.

Although Risch has various credits to his name, you may remember him most recently from Looking in which he was rarely clothed. He discussed his character's lack of wardrobe with NewNowNext:

"I had never been shot in that way. Professionally it's difficult, and it's a question you have to wrestle with. 'Do I do this now when I'm not well established?' 'Am I only going to be a body?' They originally wanted me to do full-frontal, which I said no to. It's not difficult to actually do it. But with a show like that, it's such a good quality show and there's smart artists, you just have to trust."

For someone who has qualms about nudity, he certainly seems good at it. With the passing of Looking, let's take a moment of silence for the beautiful bodies it shared with the world.
