Coverboy: Chris

In the Spotlight

This week’s Coverboy isn’t afraid of the bright lights of Hollywood or Broadway. In fact, 24-year-old Chris craves them. An actor, dancer and model by profession, the Baltimore-born New Yorker travels wherever his job requires, from acting in regional theater productions to working at Disney World. His most recent project brings him back to his home state of Maryland. In between rehearsals and performances, Chris waits tables to earn money, meaning he has very little spare time. He loves sitting down to watch his favorite type of movie: B-grade horror films, which might just serve as the perfect date-night activity.

What’s on your nightstand?
I don’t own a nightstand.

Where do you keep the condoms and lube?
I have a box of all my important documents, and I keep them in there.

What are your television favorites?
True Blood, Big Brother, Family Guy, Glee, American Horror Story.

What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid?
Dexter’s Laboratory and Scooby-Doo.

What superhero would you be?

That’s a tough one. I’m a big fan of Iceman from X-Men.

Who’s your greatest influence?
My parents, because they started working really young and took care of themselves.

What’s your greatest fear?

Pick three people, living or dead, who you think would make the most fascinating dinner guests imaginable.
John Lennon, Beethoven and Marilyn Monroe.

What would you serve?
I am not, by any means, good at cooking anything. I’d probably order some pizza, grab a beer and hope they enjoyed it as well.

How would you describe your dream guy?
I try not to think of a predetermined outlook on somebody. I’d rather have someone I connect with and see how that goes.
