1987 proved to be an explosive year. The Unabomber exploded at least two bombs, The Simpsons exploded onto The Tracy Ullman Show, Typhoon Nina exploded into the Phillipines, taking over a thousand lives. More importantly, Dolph Lundgren exploded onto the big screen as He-Man. This development, of course, led to many an exploding trouser.
Yes, Lundgren’s long been a part of our masturbatory repetoire. From his turn as Rocky’s nemesis, Captain Ivan Drago in Rocky IV to Showdown in Little Tokyo‘s Capt. Chris Kenner, Lundgren’s bulging bod, disturbingly Aryan features and – we suppose – “acting” always got us going.
These days? Well, Lundgren – seen on August 12th, in Los Angeles – ain’t looking like a master of the universe, but we can’t help but still feel a twinge. Maybe it’s simply nostalgia or maybe, just maybe, age eroded Lundgren into something equally, perhaps a bit violently, alluring. We can’t tell.
So, readers – Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren: sexy or scraggy?
