5 Best Butts We Want to See Play Nightwing

Let’s be honest, everyone knows that the Nightwing movie is going to rely on finding the right butt to play the part. While the actor should have the chops, the real star of Nightwing is less the man and more the butt. So, with that in mind, I went on a search for the top five butts that we’d all like to see play Nightwing. Because, let’s be honest, no one wants a prosthetic butt for such an iconic role.

I get it, I do. This whole post is basically objectification, right? And I’m all for gender equality. But look, I’m also a woman with eyes. Besides, if we’re going to continue to objectify women regardless of requests to stop? Perhaps it’s a bit of time to join them if you can’t beat them.

First of all, let’s start at the beginning of our casting. To play Nightwing, the actor needs to be lithe and athletic. This means that, despite much moaning to be said, someone with a broad build like Jared Padalecki isn’t going to cut the mustard here. Also, let’s face it, we’re looking for the kind of butt that radiates sexy. This means that none of that “great abs saggy butt” is going to work in this role. With that in mind, let’s take a look at those glutes.


Steven Yeun

Even for those who knew what was coming on The Walking Dead, the loss of Steven Yeun from the ongoing cast was devastating. With his lanky stature and well-defined body, Mr. Yeun has been on several lists as being the right body type to play Grayson. However, what about that back? Let’s take a look.


Shemar Moore

Right, so maybe he’s not the youngest on this list, but if I’m being completely honest? He’s the main reason I spent years watching Criminal Minds. He’s got the swag necessary but also the body. Goodness knows that smile could send anyone into a coma of joy. And that butt? Just check this out.


Godfrey Gao

OK, Godfrey Gao is new to me. However, when trying to find “sexy, lanky men,” his name was one of the top hits. Yes, he is pretty amazing. Best known for his role in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, he’s also modeled for Louis Vuitton. Taking a look at some of his modeling? He very well could make a great new superhero.   


Zac Efron

If Perez Hilton is going to consider Zac Efron one of the hottest celebrity man butts who am I to argue? In the last few years, Efron has made some popular movies including Neighbors, in which he shed his squeaky clean Disney image. Moreover, he’ll be in the upcoming Baywatch movie which speaks well to his physique.


Michael Ealy

Best known for his roles in Barbershop, 2 Fast 2 Furious, and more recently The Perfect Guy, Ealy is on many of the “best looking” lists. While his stunning good looks alone could place him as a contender, his lanky frame fits the role of Nightwing perfectly. Just imagine that “knowing” look in his eyes, as Nightwing glances over his shoulder at the camera while giving the perfect butt pose.
Who do you want to see show off his handsome derriere as Nightwing?
