Shirtless in Character

“As Dr Ben Keeton, the head of a South American jungle clinic, actor Martin Henderson has finally found a role that not only maximizes his ruggedly handsome good looks, but also jives with the tree hopping lifestyle to which he wanted to become accustomed,” New York Post blogger Jarett Wieselman writes. Wieselman chats with Henderson about his shift to TV [in the show Off the Map] and feelings about being called a sex symbol. “I don’t know if I feel honoured to be that,” Henderson says. “It’s an occupational hazard. I wouldn’t call it an evil, because it is what it is. Sex sells. They want flesh out there and my character is supposed to be that kind of guy. I don’t know. I treat it like a character. I do. It probably sounds falsely modest, but I don’t go around taking my shirt off at work like [Ben does].”
