CHRIS EVANS

The 30-year-old, Bud Light-chugging, Beantown-bred star of The Avengers is widely—and correctly—perceived as the ultimate guy's guy. But beneath the bro persona lies a serious student of Buddhism, an unrepentant song-and-dance man, and a guy who talks to his mom about sex. And farts.

The new nightlife drug Molly is supposed to be pure MDMA, Ecstasy without all the artificial additives (ibuprofen, talcum powder, methamphetamine). Are the pleasures of organic highs that much better? Or are its hipster fans simply falling for a smarter branding strategy?

LONE STAR

He's got the technical mastery of a Federer, the competitive fire of a Kobe, and the steamy good looks of a young Banderas. Some say he's the greatest player in the history of the game. So why have you never heard of Goiko (a.k.a. Inaki Osa Goikoetxea)? Because he plays jai alai, the sport that time forgot.
