Alan Ritchson: Shirtless for 'August Man'

Alan Ritchson goes shirtless in this new shot for August Man magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 28-year-old Blue Mountain State actor had to share:

On finding ways to keep his character fresh: “The easiest thing for someone playing a bully or any archetypal character is to play the stereotype. But my goal with every scene is to find another layer that we haven’t explored.”

On learning on his own: “I took my fair share of classes, but you know, I work best with my own experiences. I learn a lot from the jobs I do and learn valuable lessons that you can’t learn from the proverbial “book”. If I ever feel like I’m getting stuck, I make efforts to get into a new rhythm.

On what he’d like to do in the future: “I have several shorts I’ve written that I want to start producing soon, and I’m working on a feature film right now that’s like a mixture of The Sandlot and Stand By Me. I think it’s likened to that lost era of Hollywood where there’s a joy in the creative process and you make these movies and explore humanity and bygone eras in a way that people don’t do anymore.”
