Hunky Men of the 80’s

Adrian Zmed

Adrian Zmed, teen heart-throb almost at 30.

It is only fitting that I balance Sexy Women of the 80’s with Hunky Men.  Adrian Zmed gets first post as he was a staple of the very late 70’s and all over television in the 80’s appearing in episodic series Starsky and Hutch, Love Boat, Empty Nest, Bosom Buddies, Goodtime Girls, Murder She Wrote and the list goes on.  Like so many actors, a high school sports star he suffered a severe injury to his knee playing football and thus turned to acting and singing.   It was  in 1982 when he appeared in both Grease 2 with Michelle Pfeifer and TJ Hooker (82-85) playing the character Vince Roman alongside William Shatner and Heather Locklear did he rise to the top of the Handsome Hunk heap.

Zmed, shirtless as he often was on TJ Hooker


Zmed  and Locklear were constantly being scripted into situations that called for shirtless or skimpy outfits as they often did police duty undercover even tough they were uniformed officers.  Adrian went on to minor success on the large screen with Bachelor Party starring a young Tom Hanks and Tawny Kitaen.  His big screen career never rose higher than this and he returned to TV series and specials. In 85 he departed TJ hooker and became the host of Dance Fever for 2 years and has kept active with numerous TV appearances.  Zmed can be found performing Adrian Zmed In Concert on  the Princess cruise ship line.  Adrian turns 57, March 4, 2011.
