Getting A Tune Up at the Celebrity Body Shop. This very important article picks different body parts of actors/characters for the perfect person. I'm sure James will be thrilled to know that fans have another reason to scream to take off his shirt.

To add a comment, while I think he has nice abs, I'd pick his back and arms... Just saying.
They don't even mention him by name, only the character Spike, poor James. I love those cheekbones and his blue eyes and ... happily drifting off to la la land ... was I saying something?
I was thinking about this, and I thought, well, I like that thick curly hair, so I would pick his hair . . . and I like the eyes and cheekbones and lips, so I would pick his face, and the shoulders and arms are great, so yes on those . . . long story short (so as not to get x-rated), I got all the way down to Spike's feet, and still hadn't chosen anyone else. Not very creative, but it was a fun trip.
I'd go for that intense look he has, mid-head tilt, that could melt an unbeating heart at 60 paces. And that rather nice man-curve on the hips; what's that called? I'd go for that.
If I had gone solely with my wife's suggestions, I'd be a set of Siamese twins with Spike on one side and Johnny Depp on another (or possibly a Johnny Depp who turned into Spike when it got dark). I demanded more diversity for the column's sake and she (reluctantly) made some concessions...

I'd take Spike's bed hair from Intervention. His head tilt from the end of Fool For Love. and that sly smirk from mid way through Smashed.
Can't they just pick his entire body? By the way, why did she say "not the actor who plays him, just Spike"? Don't they have the same EXACT body? I personally think James' slender, compacat muscled form is pretty much the best body in "Hollywood". Okay...I need to go get something to catch the drool.
Teresa is very specific, and doesn't really know James Marsters well enough to know if she'd be attracted to him. Whereas Spike, on the other hand...
after reading all these comments....I'll be in my bunk.

That's either amusing or more than a bit creepifying, depending on where William was in his character arc.

Thanks, Harm, knew we could count on you to pull that quote.

I could use some Marsters abs, but I wouldn't use them the way most people in this thread would. I would only use them for good (or for awesome as StrongBad would say) :)

zietgeist, I aim to please.

The article doesn't seem to have anything at all to do with being attracted to the person, but rather parts of their body. If you like Spike's abs, then you like James' abs. And, exactly how well does she know Brad Pitt? Come on!
Dipping into the shallow end of the pool, I'm going to single out JM's purty mouth.
A fun trip, indeed, sari, and one worth taking again... and again...

Youíve all got it right - whatís NOT to like about Jamesí body? Iím following Harmaliciousí lead: Iíll be in my bunk.
Hee, there's a whole lotta bunkin' going on tonight!

And that rather nice man-curve on the hips; what's that called? I'd go for that.


I think that's called the exterior oblique. You've got to be mighty lean for those muscles to show, but, yeah, James is a rather fine example of male, uhm, musculature. Not that I've spent a lot of time looking at him and his uh...parts.
I'm just going to weigh in with a vote for the whole package!!!!

Now get your minds out of the gutter and your tongue off the floor.
I mean James/Spike as the whole MAN.
Mind, Body, Heart and Soul.
Yes indeed that fits my description of damn near perfect.
Right, kathylovesspike. Of course. Mind, heart and soul are important too. But when I look at Spike-JM, I can never get past the body part(s). :-)

Dear God. I will burn in hell.
Don't worry about it sari...we will all be burning right there with you. And yes...it really is hard to get past the bod, the eyes...and everything else...but James and Spike too...are really so much more than eye candy. I think thats what makes them so attractive.
Quite right, Kathylovesspike - it really is his soul that we love:)
Did anyone notice the ad for Jessica Simpson hair extensions at the bottom of the page? Too funny.
