Reader Poll: How Hot is Michael Chiklis?
In eighth grade my best friend Erin and I used to watch The Commish all the time. When the show started Chiklis was only 28! TWENTY EIGHT. My age. He was a tubby family man. Loveable, and yet harsh. Balding, yet charming. Ok, ok I clearly can’t remember what The Commish was about but I don’t really think I need to get into the details of the character development right now!
Anyway. Time passed and a little over a decade later a 39 year old Chiklis became The Shield. Which I’m pretty sure I got like 2 episodes into and I was like WOAH there is a lot of women-hating and cheating going on up in this place. I had just finished The Wire, I wasn’t ready.
Now here we are with ads for a 47 year old Chiklis starting in No Ordinary Family a much lighter fare to be sure:
The show centers on the Powells, a typical American family whose members gain special abilities after their plane crash lands into the Amazon River.
Cute, right? And Rita’s in it! I’m glad she got a job and she seems much less whiny, I was worried that was her actual personality. Like how IRL January Jones really is an empty shell of a human.
Bottom line though really as I ramble is this:
20 years after The Commish, Michael Chiklis is a hunk.
