News: Johnny Castle Named Man of the Year

Men Magazine has named porn star Johnny Castle its 2007 Man of the Year. Specialty Publications, the owner of Men, announced that after more than 10,000 votes from readers around the world, Castle has claimed the top spot. “The Man of the Year competition is almost always a photo finish,” says Men editor-in-chief David Kalmansohn. “Our top finalists are some of the sexiest, studliest guys in the world. Still, Johnny seemed to stay just ahead of the pack all the way in. He really gives the readers what they want!”

Castle, who has starred in such films as Sun Soaked and Hustle and Cruise, is also the cover model for Men’s 2008 calendar and was featured on the cover and inside of its March 2007 issue. He succeeds 2006 winner Zeb Atlas.

When reached for comment, Castle said, “I’m in Pennsylvania visiting family for the holidays. I’m still not believing that I won. I called [agent] David [Forest] back three times just in case they had made a mistake. This has really been a great year!”

The 27-year-old model, who also appeared in Playgirl magazine this year, began performing live in gay nightclubs last summer. Next weekend, November 23 and 24, he will do his first Florida shows at Cupids Sports Bar in West Palm Beach.

The January 2008 issue of Men, which features new and exclusive photos of Castle and his four hottest rivals, will hit newsstands December 4, 2007.
