Alan Ritchson Dishes On ‘Blue Mountain State’

Rising star Alan Ritchson talked about his newly found fame on Spike TVs new hit show Blue Mountain State. The series focuses on a completely wild college football team, with Ritchson as their raucous leader and team captain Thad Castle.

“The antics I get away with,” Ritchson says of the role. “Stuff you can’t get away with in real life.” Like walking around shirtless most of the time?

However, the gorgeous actor said he has little in common with the athlete character he plays.
“He was the people that I grew up around — all the douchebags in school that would pick on people,” says Ritchson, who in fact never even finished high school, starting a modeling career instead (who’d figure, right?).
He also admitted having a little bit of a crush on one of his sexy co-stars…Denise Richards!

“Our show is fun,” he says. “It’s racy. It definitely has a great audience. Our fans are amazing. But to have someone like Denise Richards? It was kind of a cool moment for us.”
