CHRIS PRATT, 31
Parks and Recreation, NBC
(Currently on hiatus)
Mr. Anna Faris has parlayed his role as utterly clueless Andy Dwyer into a big-time movie career. On deck, showing up Brad Pitt in Moneyball.
So no Parks and Rec right now?
We’ll be back soon. I hope the show is on for a long time, because we’re all having the time of our lives.
You’re married to Anna Faris. Does she dress you?
No, she doesn’t dress me, but I think she appreciates my inability to dress myself. She likes me the way I am.
Anything in your wardrobe you can’t live without?
I have a large head, and I found this Web site, lamood.com, that specializes in hats for people with a big melon.
You’re like an activist for the big-headed.
That’s right, for the cranially challenged.
What should every man own?
A pistol. Every man should have at least one super-sweet stainless-steel revolver.
Any fashion heroes?
Ted Nugent can rock camo like nobody’s business.
MARK SALLING, 28
Tuesdays at 8 p.m.
The owner of television’s most famous mohawk since Mr. T’s likes birds but loves his guitar.
Your character, Puck, has a mohawk. Why?
I did it for the audition and kind of got stuck with it.
And it was worth it?
Yeah, with Glee it’s a lot of work and a lot of reward.
The cast toured all summer. What was the best venue?
Radio City Music Hall. That was crazy and a dream come true.
Do you like getting dressed up and walking the red carpet?
I don’t really like red carpets. I don’t really like interviews.
What’s your personal style?
Laid-back, chill. Jeans, T-shirts. I wear a lot of shirts with birds on them; it’s kind of my thing.
If your house was burning down, what would you save?
I have a lot of guitars, including one modern acoustic that I’d save for sure.
Who has a look or style that you’re into?
Clooney steps it up, but right now I kind of like being myself.
JASON RITTER, 30
The Event, NBC
Mondays at 9 p.m.
The son of sitcom deity John Ritter played Jeb Bush in Oliver Stone’s W before landing the role of Sean Walker on this fall’s hottest new show.
Tell us about The Event.
I play a guy whose fiancée disappears, and her father hijacks a plane, and…That
is not the event. Apparently the event is coming, but I don’t even know what it is. I’ll have to find out with everybody else.
It sounds like a mix of 24, Lost, and The X-Files…
That combination would not be bad at all.
Your character goes nuts when he loses his lady. Is there anything you would go crazy about if you lost it?
A favorite hat I’ve had since I was eight. If my apartment was burning down, I would run in and save that hat.
Must be some hat.
There are surfers on it. It’s sort of greenish.
Uh-huh. So what’s the biggest fashion mistake you’ve ever made?
I wore the hat to the Emmys with my tux and got in a lot of trouble with the people who care about that kind of stuff. I was pretty proud of myself.
Who is your fashion icon?
When I was in high school, Kurt Cobain was my favorite. He really seemed to just not care about what he put on— if it was, like, some grandma’s cardigan or a ball gown.
Do you have a go-to drink?
I try to cocktail it up, but I usually just end up beering it up. I like a lot of beer.
DONALD GLOVER, 26
Thursdays at 8 p.m.
He’s a multiple threat—stand-up comedian, rapper, and former writer for 30 Rock—but that’s not how he impresses the ladies.
How does it feel to be on such a successful show?
It’s everything I ever wanted. I get to hang out with famous people, and nobody gets mad when I eat candy for dinner. I get paid to talk about farts and stuff. That’s awesome.
Of all the things you do, which is the closest to your heart?
If I had to choose one, it would be stand-up. I get scared, but I’m not afraid to be afraid.
Do you spend a lot of time thinking about clothes?
I’ve got to be honest, I kind of do. It’s not like a Sex and the City montage or anything: me eating yogurt with my girlfriends and them shaking their heads when I put on a hat and then nodding when I put on a scarf.
What look are you into now?
I love rolled-up white T-shirts and boat shoes and Baracuta jackets, plus some tight Nikes or something like that.
What’s your favorite thing in your home?
There are two. I have this Canon video projector, and I can invite girls over and impress them. It’s the shit. Also, Joel McHale got me into the Macallan, so a good set of Steuben whiskey glasses.
JESSE SPENCER, 31
House M.D., Fox
Mondays at 8 p.m.
As Aussie doc Robert Chase on House, Jesse Spencer saves lives. But enough heroics—when are his character and Olivia Wilde’s going to get it on?
So are Chase and Thirteen [Wilde] going to do it already?
There was some flirtation, some innuendo, and I was thinking it was going to happen last season. But are they just going to have sex? There’s always a chance.
Boring. Tell us about the photo of your mangled leg on Twitter.
I went on a surf trip to New Zealand. I tried to pull onto the face of a wave and failed.
Are you all fixed up?
Not yet. I’m trying to rehab, but I’ve been pretty lazy about it.
What other things do you do?
I started biking last year and did a 100-mile ride for charity and kicked ass! I also did a two-mile swim, and I was going to do the Vegas marathon, but my leg has fucked everything up.
What are your style staples?
I have a rocking pair of cowboy boots and I like belt buckles, too. But you can’t wear boots and buckles too much. So I tend to pick one or the other.
What did you think about posing for Maxim?
My initial reaction was, “Do I have to wear a leather bikini and heels?”
