Michael Kevin Paré was born October 9, 1958 in Brooklyn, New York. One of ten children, his father died when he was five and he was raised with his nine siblings by his mother alone. That would be heroic for anyone, but TEN children?! Give this woman a medal already! Who could the Nobel committee find to be more deserving?
Michael was a working chef in Manhattan when an agent spotted him and convinced him to try acting. For that reason he is much like fellow New York Stater Matt Dillon (from Binghamton), who was discovered by an agent while skipping class: both men have a very limited talent that doesn't extend far beyond that of the punk, and now that they are older, they now play the punk who isn't aware he should have outgrown that phase.
Because Michael has always been a working actor and not a very big celebrity, there just aren't that many pics of him outside of his films. As for his films, well, he has worked consistently for the past 30 years, but very little of it has been in recognizable work. Nonetheless, he is always interesting and always sexy.
MAGAZINESMichael was in Playgirl not once, but twice, albeit interviewed and not posing.
I actually have this copy of Men's Fitness. He was really hot in it, but the mag didn't exploit his best assets properly.
For a while, Michael was the king of Hollywood headshots. With a beautiful head of hair, piercing eyes and a chiseled face, who wouldn't want this guy in their movie?
There are times when Michael's eyes can capture a puppy dog quality. And who could look better in a variety of costumes.
Whether in camouflage....
...a Naval uniform...
...a Kerouacian white T...
...an urban black t....
...wearing Tawney Kitaen as shawl...
...Old Navy fleece...
...over the shoulder of a trench coat...
....practicing his ventriloquism act in a cerulean Henley...
....turn of the 20th Century undergear and a bloodied face....
...and the prototype of the Iron Man costume.
Still, nothing but NOTHING beats shirtless!
WITH CHICKS, DUDE
Michael also has a disproportionately greater number of movie stills of him in the clenches of a woman.
Now THAT is the quintessential orgasm!
WITH DUDES, DUDE
And though straight, there are more than a few pics of Michael with dudes, though platonic ones.
Michael made his first big splash in the film Eddie and the Cruisers, a really fun and interesting movie about a rock and roll star who disappeared when his car was driven into a harbor.
Michael did not do his own singing in this film. John Cafferty was enlisted to handle the singing duties and his voice never really matches Michael's looks nor his speaking voice, but it's still an engaging film, and it gave us this cool song.
As with most films, it was fine as it was, but they decided to give it a sequel that was rather lackluster...
...and you can buy both of them in the bargain bin at Wal Mart.
Michael was next enlisted to star with Diane Lane is Streets of Fire, another film with some great, underrated music. The film has great visuals but doesn't make the slightest bit of sense.
The publicity for this film was just crazy big, and since it tanked, Michael's career trajectory went from ascending leading man to B-movie constant in just the summer of 1984.
What Michael has done the best in his career is give us shots of that hot, rockin' ass of his!
POINT OF IMPACT
Judging from these shots, it looks likes the woman's V is the point of impact.

BAD MOON RISING
Judging from these shots, I'd say it was a mighty good moon rising.

How often do we get a hot guy being a model for an art class? PERFECT!
At 53 Michael has lost none of his looks. As a former chef,
he is always cooking up something for us to enjoy.
