One our favorite features is back now that the 2017-18 theater season is underway. Who better to kick off an insider’s look at the sexiest men on and off Broadway than the sultry Jimmy Brooks? Currently appearing in the dystopian and highly homoerotic A Clockwork Orange, Jimmy is all smiles when he’s not ganging up with his cohorts in this stylized work adapted from Anthony Burgess’s novella.

What was your audition like for A Clockwork Orange?
It was pretty straightforward. They wanted us to prepare scenes from the play with a Manchester/Yorkshire accent as well as a Shakespeare monologue for the audition. I did all the tedious actor “process” stuff, went in, read for casting director Duncan Stewart, left, and forgot about it. Two weeks later, I found myself going in for a callback to meet the director Alexandra Spencer Jones and our lead, Jonno Davies.
