Dan Futterman Shirtless and Underwear Photos: Hunk Hollywood Writer. Who says writers can’t be hunk hotties? Not us here at Famewatcher. Evidence #1 that writers can be hotties is the gay Latino hunk Richard Blanco who sent a lot of hearts a-fluttering when he read his poem during the second inauguration of President Barack Obama.
