Steve Howey made his mark on the TV world in Reba, as the goofy, somewhat intelligence-challenged, Van Montgomery. His comedic timing has always been stellar, but with three seasons of Shameless under his belt, and the fourth underway, it's no stretch to call the actor a sexy beast with heart and humor to boot. In other words: the man of your dreams.
At 36, Howey has had his share of weight and health issues, but playing over-sexed Kevin Ball on the Showtime comedy hit, Shameless, has given him the motivation to get in mouth watering shape. Almost every episode includes a glimpse--or more--of his bare chest and magnificent backside. It's not just his body that makes the character sexy though. Steve's humor and charm seeps into Kevin's persona, giving the bartender-come-lover, and soon to be daddy (on the show), spice, wit, chemistry, and love-ability.
Steve's career, during and after Reba, has included some secondary roles in movies like Bride Wars and Something Borrowed, but with Shameless his true star power has begun to blossom. Even the grunge-hipster mane grown out for the show can't nip his sex appeal and star power in the bud. In fact, it seems to add to the power of his acting mojo, landing him a guest spot as a potential love interest for Zooey Deschanel last year on her show, New Girl.
With his infectious laugh, quirky smile, hunky body, charm, and alter-ego, Kevin, Steve Howey has become the sexy, blue collar, boy next door. He is one part funny, one part sweet, two parts steamy, and every part sexy. I know that I, for one, am ready and eager to see what comes next for this talented and engaging actor.
