    Another way for Alex to have his shirt off for all of the ladies.

  • Matt

    Liddell also appeared as himself on Entourage a couple of years back.

  • jdud

    Quite the casting coup, if we were all back in 2007!

    • Sheri

      Er he’s not playing himself lol!

      • Jennifer

        According to this article Liddell is playing himself.

      • Sheri

        Not clearly in the “sides” though. We’ll see.

  • alan of montreal

    Chuck Liddell looks like he could easily make mincemeat out of Alex

    • Monkey

      So true! But of course, they can’t have McG lose, all his slobbering fans wouldn’t like that ;)

  • Jennifer

    Whatever keeps Alex’s shirt off! Can’t wait for Mondays to get hot again!

  • Rick G

    Krueger, James. With an E.

  • Holly

    what happened to the team doing serious crimes? I thought, according to Peter, that they were supposed to cover more high scale crimes, something that makes sense for them to do NOT the stuff they were doing last year. Seems nothing has changed. It’s too bad.

  • Grumpster

    If they didn’t have the show on too late, I’d probably watch. A 10pm start time is too late for this type of show.

  • monster

    I love Alex O, cant wait to watch this episode with Chuck Lidell.

  • bb

    Liddell would kick Alex’s ass in real life but I’m sure for storyline purposes, they will have the “great hero” win. BTW, I sure hope Peter L concentrates on great writing and better storylines this season because Alex “shirtless” every other scene is not going to keep this show on the air!

    • Monkey

      I agree “bb”. I’m so sick and tired of “shirtless Alex”. I prefer to see better storylines and drama. Hopefully, the great acting of Scott Caan, Tom Sizemore and Terry O’Quinn will make up for the “eye candy” scenes of Alex!

      • ESS

        Great acting od Scott Caan. OMG I almost read that without laughing out loud almost.

    • tipsy

      Because Chuck looks like IQ 20 dumba$$ meataxe and Alex looks smart. So i`m sure that brains will prevail over brawn. he`ll have Chuck smash his head into the wall or such laughs-inducing hero victory.

  • linda

    Pretty brave of Alex to even get in the ring with a MMA champ……way to go Alex… u and H50

  • Louise

    @Linda, Brave? Hardly! I’m sure it is so well orchestrated and scripted, so as not to miss up pretty boy’s face! In reality, Liddell would kick his ass with one arm and leg tied behind his back1

  • Julia

    Seems nothing has changed This show is lame. As always all O’Loughin does is take off his shirt and smile .
    Scott is the only one acting there. No wonder he was the only one nominated for a Golden Globe award.
    I will be checking The Playboy Club next Monday. Hoping to find some talent there.

    • Renee

      You call that acting, all Scott C does is talk (yell) non stop!
      When given a better dramatic script, Alex is a damn good actor.
      To entertain everyone, the show needs a bit of everything, which it has.
      I’d like to see more interaction between Alex and Daniel or Alex and Grace not just Danny all the time.
      Looking forward to Quin’s role and hope to see more of ME Max.
      Give Alex more dialogue, he can deliver.

      • Jamie

        Need I remind you Renee who received a Globe Globe nomination – hint – NOT Alex! BTW, the only reason H50 is still on the air is because of Scott’s talent. Why do you think the producers try to find any opportunity to have Alex take his shirt off? Because, they know too his acting skills are minimal and leave the real acting for Scott – that is why he gets all the best lines – they know he can DELIVER !

      • Suzy

        Scott is good but just plays himself – he’s admitted that. And he’s the same in everything he does – like Bruce Willis.

        Alex just has a lot of haters like anyone who is really good looking. Folks can’t deal. I always thought it was only hot women who got the hate but guys do too. All the time. Some of the comments about Jensen Ackles and the like are awful. Anyway I for one am all for pretty men on our screens.

    • Suzy

      Ooh snarky. Alex can act and why shouldn’t women get some eye candy for once! I’m sick sick sick of women half naked on the tv all the time. Good for HFO for letting us have hot guys.

      Oh and lol at you watching playboy club instead because if one person cannot act for his life its good old Eddie C.
