Mark Sanchez, the New York Jets’ quarterback who has hair that could make Fabio jealous, is the newest cover model for GQ. Inside the September issue, which hits newsstands next week, there’s (of course) a shirtless Sanchez, discussion of the shows he has DVR’d (“Glee,” a Justin Bieber documentary) and his love for theater:
While you’re likely to bump into other New York athletes at Scores, you’re more likely to find Sanchez at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. He’s seen just about every show out there, many of them multiple times. His truck is cluttered with cast albums. So ubiquitous is Sanchez in the theater district that he was a presenter at last year’s Tonys.
Aside from just enjoying the music, Sanchez says he feels a kinship with Broadway performers. ‘Their life is so regimented—like mine. They have eight shows a week. They have to take care of their bodies, stretch, eat right, take care of their voices. You know, their voice is like my arm.’
It’s probably not the most comforting thing for Jets fans to read, but hey, at least the guy is honest. And oh so pretty.
