Dean Cain, the face of influenza

When I think of influenza, I don’t in any way think of Dean Cain. But, that’s all changing, as the former man-of-steel is now one of several celebrities featured in a new ad campaign to educate the masses about the dangers of influenza.

Cain suffers from asthma and is at risk for serious respiratory problems, if he contracts the flu, according to the Web site http://www.facesofinfluenza.org. Check out the campaign and the stories of other celebrities who are involved.

For those of you who are confused as to why I keep posting about Dean Cain, yes, I’m aware it’s not 1995. But, there are just some crushes a girl can’t ever get over.

Those of you too young to have caught Cain’s performance on Lois and Clark, check out some of the episodes on AOL’s In2TV Web site. I recommend the episode Soul Mates, because Dean dressed as a cowboy and a bandit in black tights, riding a horse, is too hard to resist. It’s free, people. So, go!

Keep the Dean Cain updates coming! You are definitely not the only one around with a thing for Mr. Cain!

PS: I can't wait for the 4th season of Lois and Clark on DVD: November 14. I am counting down...

Thanks for the feeback! I wasn't sure about "outing myself" as a Dean Cain fan and risking the ridicule of my fellow TV fans who have declared me stuck in the '90s, but from the amount of traffic I get here from people Google searching Cain, he is as popular as ever. I'm apparently not alone in my crush.

No problem...I know exactly what you mean by "outing yourself..." LOL...My boyfriend thinks I am a tad off my rocker for being obsessed with a TV show from the 1990s (especially since I was only 8 years old when it started) and for being obsessed with its TV star who, unfortunately, we won't be seeing on Las Vegas anymore. Boo to that.

I'm so glad I found that there are other people who have a crush on Dean Cain. What an absolute doll! I'm old enough to be his mother, but I still think he's hot :o) .
Really, I really admire him and respect him for trying to make a difference in this world by helping others.

I feel glad that I'm also not the only one who have a huge crush on him. Actually I'm a teenager now, even though he is twice as my age, I still dont mind the age, I love him as the way he smile and especially when he played as Clark/Superman.
