Quick facts on Beau Mirchoff

Not having anything to do last night, I decided to see out the new LGBTQ themed show on Starz called Now Apocalypse. Given some of the pre-buzz about the series debut, I figured why not, you know?

Well, this post isn’t about the show because there are plenty of reviews online to choose from. Nope, instead, this blog entry is all about one of the actor’s named Beau Mirchoff. He plays the part of Ford Halstead, alongside actor Tyler Posey.

Hey, I am not going to lie. He caught my attention in major ways. It’s not as if the show’s producers didn’t intend it that way either because they pretty much let it ALL hang out (read between the lines).
