What Seth Gabel Looks Like Naked

According to the TV Line website, this person is Seth Gabel, with and without the shirt and glasses.  But I think they made a mistake. It looks like two different people to me.

The Seth Gabel on the right has a long, narrow face, which you may recall as one of my Top 10 Turn-Offs, regardless of his buffed physique.

The Seth Gabel on the left is kind of cute.

So which is correct?

The 33-year old actor has been trucking around Hollywood since 2002, when he played a "Sweet Young Sailor" on Sex and the City.  Sounds provocative.

His first major role came in a five-episode story arc on Nip/Tuck (2004) as a teenager who is having an affair with his mother.  When she dumps him for a non-relative teen, he tries desperately to get her back, even trying to kiss the new boyfriend.  Bisexual and incestuous!

Another role that sounds provocative: "Kissing Man" in something called Good Dick (2008), which is also about incest, paranoia, and various sexual dysfunctions.

On to the character of Jeremy Darling on Dirty Sexy Money (2007-2009): the troubled son of multimillionaire Tripp Darling, a chain-smoking cocaine addict who keeps getting involved with the wrong people.  Never saw it, but he is apparently bisexual.

To avoid being typecast as sexually dysfunctional types (which, according to Hollywood, includes bisexuals), Seth starred in Gothica (2013), a tv series pilot that weaves together all of the 19th century horror plotlines, from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein to Poe's Fall of the House of Usher (he plays Roderick Usher). Dorian Gray was wandering around, so there must have been some gay content.

On Fringe (2010-2013), he played Lincoln Lee.  Something to do with parallel worlds.  Never saw it, but apparently he was gay or had a gay subtext.

And on Salem (2014), about real witches in Colonial Massachusetts, he plays the famous Cotton Mather as a bigoted, homophobic, hypocritical,witch-hunter (yes, there are gay witches in Salem).  With a buffed, hairy physique.








In real life, Seth is married to a woman with a boy's name, Bryce.  I don't know who the flamboyantly feminine friend is.

So which of the top photos is Seth?  All evidence points to the left, and the right as the significantly less attractive Stephen Amell.

TV Rage doesn't know what it's talking about.
