Casting the ultimate playboy

We suggest a few men who might be worthy to don Hugh Hefner’s famous smoking jacket

Posted on

1. TOPHER GRACE
The former Eric Forman knows how to swing ’70s style — and given his affable performance as a corporate climber in In Good Company, he can do justice to Hef’s entrepreneurial streak.

2. IOAN GRUFFUDD
It may seem a stretch to cast Fantastic Four‘s Mr. Fantastic, but think of all the Horatio Hornblower jokes we could make!

3. NEIL PATRICK HARRIS
He’s already got the toxic-bachelor thing down as How I Met Your Mother‘s Barney, so it’s not hard to imagine him suiting up as Playboy‘s legendary lothario.

4. JUSTIN THEROUX
Just look at that resemblance! Same chiseled features, dapper charm, and Brylcreem-ready locks. The Broken English star seems to be right on the bunny. (Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves.)
