Before Andrew W.K. got wet and partied hard, he was just like most other people in New York and Los Angeles, aka an aspiring model and actor. You want pictures to prove it? Thankfully, some of those shots have surfaced, and while he might not have made it as a male model, he has made it as a role model.
The shots, which were published in Village Voice, where Mr. W.K. has a weekly column, are embarrassing in a “look what I looked like 20 years ago” kind of way, but not a “there goes my career” sort of way. We can see how he might have gotten cast as a “bad boy rocker” type in a teen comedy, but alas, his career never took off. Actually, it’s for the best, as he might not have become the legendary partier/musician/motivational speaker that he is today had his acting/modeling career taken off.
