Sexiest Beast Alive 2011: Jason Momoa
August 12, 2011
Step aside Brad Pitt and George Clooney, there’s a new sexy beast in town named Jason Momoa!
Jason Momoa had a big year in 2011 with the hit series Game of Thrones on HBO the film Conan the Barbarian, which will surely be a huge hit.
There really is nothing better than a big handsome man who can act and kick butt, all at the same time! Sure, he may not win an Oscar anytime soon, but his skills on screen are much better than his rivals Vin Diesel, Gerard Butler, and dare I say Arnold Schwarzenegger.
You may be surprised to know that Jason got his start on Baywatch, where he played Jason Ione. He then landed some small supporting roles on shows like Rescue Me, before landing a role on Stargate: Atlantis playing Ronon Dex.
Jason, 32, was born in Honolulu, Hawaii but was raised in Norwalk, Iowa. He also has two kids, a daughter named Lola Lolaini Momoa, 4, and a son named Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, 2, with actress Lisa Bonet, from The Cosby Show.
In 2008, Jason was attacked at a bar in Hollywood and had reconstructive surgery. This is how he got that sexy scar on his left eyebrow.
So, what’s up next for Jason? He will be starring in a movie called Bullet to the Head with Sylvester Stallone and Christian Slater, which is about a cop and a hitman who form an alliance after watching their partners die. Jason will play Keegan, although it’s unclear what his role is in the film will actually be.
Conan the Barbarian hits theaters on August 19th.
