Jon Bernthal, who plays the hunky and aggro bad boy/survivor Shane on The Walking Dead shows that the brokeback pose can actually work with guys! In fact, this seems to be Bernthal’s favorite way to pose!
Or is it just….a stylistic choice of the show’s art director?
Maybe it’s meant to symbolize twisty Shane’s good guy/bad guy nature? We hereby declare Bernthal King of the Male Brokeback!
BTW, is there a reason that T-Dag never shows up in any of the promos? Or any of the plotlines or dialog? Just wonderin’.
