Want To Give Vartan a Hand?

Want To Give Vartan a Hand?

Former Alias spy Michael Vartan wears his sports injuries like badges of honor while dining at West Hollywood eatery Toast with the guys on Tuesday.

The 38-year-old hockey enthusiast had old ligament damage repaired to both of his hands at once — his mitts were wrapped in gauze and black electrical tape. Vartan‘s been pucking around too much on the ice rink!

Anyone want to nurse this hottie back to health?

    mmm I Love Michael Vartan…hes so HOT
    I hear he has a new show coming out soon

  • Smart Stuff

    Walking Cripple? You know, JJ, there’s a whole world of vocabulary out there; I’m sure that a better phrase than ‘walking cripple’ was available. Still, what ever makes a catchy and stupid headline I guess. The guy broke two fingers, he didn’t fracture his spine, and even if he did, that phrase is ignorant and insensitive. I’m assuming you have a college education, you should try using it.

  • montaƱera

    He is really hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    He and jennifer garner made a really cute couple..
    they shouldn’t have splited.. It was sad.
    Is he currently dating anyone???

  • Mary

    I love him. He is the best.

    It seems like mike underged a ligament surgery to cure some old injurys

  • liz

    It’s about time we got some photos of Michael. Love him! And, Jared, your title sucks. He’s not a cripple. In fact, seems like he’s doing better than most would be doing with both hands in a cast but I would gladly volunteer to help him in any way possible.

  • Just Jared

    Sorry, Smart Stuff and liz. changed!

  • tip top

    Don’t like the title. Should get your facts straight. Michael had some old ligament damage repaired and what a man to have both hands done at the one time – he must have been in some pain. And yes I think many many many women would happily lend a hand to help him out. Hope he has a quick recovery and cannot wait to see him on the screen again.

  • Cynthia

    He is a good actor, but I fail to see his appeal.

  • Nadine

    ME!!!! (in reply to the “Anyone want to nurse this hottie back to health?”comment by JJ)

  • liz

    omg michael is so fine!! it is actualy so hotttt!!!! is there any chance of more pics and maybe a bit nore of jhim on this site please if possible!!!!!

  • Merkin

    He could have anything he wants from me…he is HOTT!!!!!!

  • Another Cynthia

    Well this Cynthia sees his appeal, as do thousands of others!

    However, he is not just physically attractive, but, more importantly, seems such a quietly charismatic, likeable and generous person.

    I hope Nurse Milly is looking after you.

    Get Better soon Michael.

  • hr

    i love mv, but… what’s with the track pants and buttondown? surely if he can button his shirt (despite the recovery process), he can button a pair of jeans? :)

  • Jane

    Thank you, Jared, for changing the title. And, yes, I would love to give him a hand!!!

  • tina

    poor guy has been ladled with injuries, he’s getting thinner he’s probably not eating right. he really needs a woman to take care of him. i’d like to volunteer for the job! ;)

  • Cherie

    I’ll “puck” around with MV! I love him.

    I really hope his new pilot gets picked up. I miss seeing him on my tv every week.

  • Chris


  • D

    yes, hottt! he does look thin, though. miss seeing him on TV.

  • Jan

    Love, love, love Michael Vartan. Could not agree more with Another Cynthia about his appeal being much broader than his fantastic looks. The more you see and hear his interviews, the more you get how great a person he is. Yeah, I’d give just about anything to nurse him – or just see him in person!! And I can’t wait for his two movies to come out and his ABC series in the fall – have to assume ABC won’t be an idiot twice!

  • Jo

    MV is one gorgeous man! Considering the amount of pain and aggravation he’s probably going through, I can forgive him the unfortunate wardrobe choice. I’d gladly volunteer to give him a helping hand!

  • emma

    Jo Says, I totally forgive him for his wardrobe choice. Been there, done that with ligament surgery, which is very painful. One hand is bad enough but he was very brave having both hands done. I can certainly see why he’s not wearing jeans. It’s pretty tough zipping/unzipping, buttoning/unbottoning when it’s time to potty. Love him…he’s a great guy!

  • Amy

    This is one gorgeous man, but more importantly, seems like a genuinely wonderful guy. Modest, witty, unassuming, intelligent–he’s a complete packge. I can’t wait to see his two new films and hope his pilot is picked up because I miss seeing him on a regular basis on tv. He was the only reason I watched the nonsense that was Alias, and I don’t think I’m alone in that. Wish the people at ABC had realized how important his appeal was to the show.

  • VK

    Amy.. you said it all about MV! So true and more…

  • Leon

    How does he wipe his bottom?

  • Jan

    Totally agree with Amy. Alias became SO painful the last 3 seasons – especially the last 2 – that I wanted to spare myself but cannot – repeat cannot – miss Michael Vartan in anything. I didn’t watch the episodes he was killed of off, however – I came back when he came back!

  • MikeyNoTalent

    To Leon: With his shirt.

    Mikey disses his birth country, saying that he does not have “an ounce of French blood”, and is a “Polish Jew who happens to be born in France”. At the age of 18, he moved to be with his mother in America in order to dodge the draft in France, not wanting to do the mandatory military service required of all French citizens.

    After many minor roles, Vartan stumbled onto Never Been Kissed and then Alias. After manipulating rival Bradley Cooper into a minor player status, Michael then weaseled his way into Jennifer Garner’s life knowing she was married to Scott Foley. Taking advantage of Jen’s open nature, he gained her trust and at the same time, higher status on the show.

    Seeing that Alias was suffering declining ratings, opportunistic Vartan choose to abandon the show in order to star in the Australian movie, Rogue. He allowed unfounded rumours to circulated that he was fired, while paradoxically admitting the truth that his relationship to Jennifer Garner wasn’t serious and that he was happy for her.

    Michael returned to Alias as the production team intended him to do, to finish off the series.

    Fans tend to excuse his lifestyle of drinking, gambling and womanizing, by projecting his Vaughn character to the man.

    Vartan is now playing the second lead in the Fall series, Big Shots. The network has high hopes for the appeal of their two leads. However, the show has strong competition and weak critical reviews.

    To Mikeynotalent-
    I love it when people speak the truth.
    Quiet, charismatic, and genuine?
    These people are confusing Mike with his character.
