My recent nonstop bunge on Criminal Minds has definitely left me with a fixation for this hottie.
Granted, I haven’t seen this model turned actor flex his thespian chops in much else, he catches all my attention in Criminal Minds. Look at those abs.
Anyway, seems like most Criminals Minds fans have a softspot for Mr. Matthew Gray Gubler, and he’s not ugly either:
And he’s an easy crush, slim, awkward, oddly handsome, wacky hairdo, storylines that make you want to give him a big ole hug (from his early seasons struggles with his upbringing, with relating more to the unsubs than his coworkers, with not being able to pass the firearms test, to his PTSD/repressed memories in Las Vegas, his abandonment issues, SO MANY ISSUES) he’s always the one who has to talk the unstable off the ledge and if I was there I’d give him a big hug and cry my eyes out on the jet home. But I have a Whovian crush who fits that bill.
Derek Morgan gets to knock out brutes and steps up to lead the team when Hotch can’t. He also flirts with Penelope Garcia… a lot. He has some emotional plotlines as well but not with multiple episode story arcs like MGG, Prentiss, Elle, Rossi and Hotch. (Maybe he does in later seasons, let me know if I’m speaking too soon, I only catch the first run here and there)
BONUS: comic book connection
Shemar Moore voiced Cyborg in Justice League War …put him in the JLA movie, DC. he definitely spruces up the place.
Ink Master is one of those shows I always seem to catch repeats of while I am on my lunch break. Somehow Ink Master Season One captured my attention briefly away from X-Files. Mostly because of this guy:
And his rivalry with fellow contestant Shane O’neill. The two finalists hurled insults. The tore up each others work. They bragged and boasted, but they always could back it up. The rivalry between the two was unmatched by any other contestants. They argued like feuding siblings, but hardly found it worth fucking with the other contestants. Underneath the venomous words in their big talk they showed a lot of mutual respect.
look at him, looking like a badass James Bond
And that’s true class.
For the Season 1 finale, there was a surprise client for him to tattoo. He got a beautiful blonde woman and he turned to her and said “Well, this is a pleasant surprise” with swagger and unparalleled confidence. He nailed the tattoo.
But Shane was dubbed the Ink Master with Tommy standing by his side in second place.
And we’re talking about a contest where $100,000 dollars is on the line. Where fame and fortune are the prizes.
But when it came down to it he shook Shane’s hand and congratulated him.
No whining, no bitterness, no excuses and no bullshit.
check out http://artbytommy.com/ for his amazing work.
PS- He did win fame and fortune (although not the grand prize): he got his own show “Tattoo Nightmares” about covering up bad tattoos which has been going strong for 4 seasons.
In honor of Boston Comic Con (and the legions of women and girls dressed up as TARDIS and Daleks) and John Barrowman; I’ve decided to dedicate this week’s Male Objectification post to the real reason I got into Doctor Who: David Tennant.
And yes, I pretty much am one of those “fake ass Doctor Who ‘fans’ who only likes the Tennant Years.” I liked Eccleston ..I was “eh” about Matt Smith. But Frigging Tennant just brought it every time. The style, the quirkiness, the angst.
How could you not love that face?!
Capaldi is taking the Doctor and his current companion down a darker, more serious road (SPOILERS) So let’s take a moment to appreciate the proper slim, zany, kooky-on-the-outside-damaged-on-the-inside Doctor. The Doctor who drew in more female fans than any other. Played by the actor who loved Doctor Who so much he wanted to act, who reportedly got the credits changed from saying “Doctor Who” to “The Doctor” (because his name isn’t Doctor Who). The Doctor who wore Converse with a three piece suit.
And wore it so well that it’s hard to find a picture of Tennant in anything else.
Except this one shirtless pic from the Fright Night remake.
John Barrowman singing his song about when Jack Harkness meets the Doctor.
Since we’re stuck with some lackluster nerd for the 50 Shades movie instead of the British (!!!) heartthrob, let’s take a moment to revel at the exquisite physical specimen that is Charlie Hunnam.
“Sons of Anarchy” will soon premiere it’s final season (September 9th)and I’m sad to see it go, and Charlie’s portrayal of the often shirtless Jax Teller is a big part of that.
But no worries, Charlie will be on the big screen again in the Guillermo Del Toro flick Crimson Peak and in the as of now hypothetical sequel to Pacific Rim
I do enjoy the biker aesthetic. And I still maintain that he wasn’t right for the role of Christian Grey because absolutely no one wants to see him in a suit and tie. But… incase I’m wrong:
Or maybe both looks at once?
For those of us who like to fantasize, we can keep Jax alive longer (and visualize the gorgeous Charlie Hunnam) while reading “Sons of Anarchy:Bratva” due out November 11, the novel is available for preorder here.
Roman Godfrey is such a creep. It makes me think that Bill Skarsgard might be a creep. I don’t even care though. That face, those eyes, that style… well, that’s still a character. I haven’t seen Bill Skarsgard in any other roles but I couldn’t picture anyone else in the role of the blood eating rich kid upir.
Allegedly, Bill is as cultured as Roman, he’s a fan of museums (and Louis CK), he doesn’t recoil from heavy reading and has a taste for quality cuisine. Rather varied and mature interests for a man of 23 and I’m impressed.
…And let’s face it Skarsgard has good genes.
When asked why the Skarsgards make great blood drinkers recently, Bill responded that it must be something in their ancient Viking blood. How could you not love that?
He hated the end of season two as much as we all did.
Look at those puppy dog eyes!
I love me some little Skarsgard. Right now the fate of Hemlock Grove is unconfirmed. No official news for season 3. I’ve been burned on this too many times, but i think we’ll be seeing more of little Skarsgard no matter what.
This should have been Tom Mison. @outofmyplanet reminded me it’s still about 150 days til Sleepy Hollow returns and I wanted to do it up right for our favorite fake founding father. But he doesn’t take his shirt off nearly enough. So here’s one:
So there you go, and now to today’s feature: Karl Urban. I am so terribly bummed that Almost Human was cancelled, but maybe the free time means he’ll be able to get cracking on Dredd 2.
Kick it old school with a blonde Urban in the Xena days
You know you’re fine if you can rock that stupid hair ‘do.
Warrior mode gain in 2007’s Pathfinder
I don’t know what’s happening in either of those and I don’t even care at all.
Look at that face.
With major roles in films from Lord of the Rings to Doom, Star Trek to Dredd I’m sure the 41 year old New Zealander won’t be hurting for work. He’ll be gracing big screens again in August for the thriller The Loft along side Rhona Mitra (Skinwalkers), Prison Break‘s Wentworth Miller and James Marsden (who I crushed hard on after 1998’s Disturbing Behavior and more recently played Scott Summers in X-Men and X-Men 2)
Damn you, Karl Urban. Take your shirt off more!
This weeks pick was undeniable. I was binge watching The Guild when I laid eyes on this Taiwanese hottie.
He’s done stunts, acting on big screens and small and voice acting. Nerd credits include: Iron Man 3, Crossing Jordan, Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings (video game), Heroes, Star Trek: Enterprise and the upcoming Transcendence with Johnny Depp.
Anyway, his character in the guild is charming and zany. Dashing and exciting. He gets attention from the RPG fans when he mentions that he did the motion animation for the game that they love. And really that there is the whole package. A practical use for martial arts if I ever heard one.
and good abs.
He definitely needs more screen time. ON ALL SCREENS EVERYWHERE
Do I even need to say anything about this?
Chris Evans has been in some TERRIBLE flicks from his first (2) superhero go arounds as the Human Torch in 2005’s Fantastic Four and the subsequent sequel to the less than stellar Cellular. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is unstoppable, but the movie that started it all, Captain America, was a near flop.. even with this week’s cinematic release of Captain America: the Winter Soldier; the previews have focused on equal parts Cap, special effects and Natalia Romanova. Having Black Widow show up because they weren’t sure that he could carry a movie on his own even with the MCU steamroller? epic girl power. ..sort of. But this isn’t about that. It’s about how awesome Chris Evans looks.
What is even going to there? I don;t know.
On the tail of Anime Boston, I’m going to be cramming as much anime and manga as possible. From bonus reviews to anime themed specials for the weekly posts.
As some of you may know, I was fully enthralled with Tuxedo Mask as a tween. But if they lept out of the screen to become humans, I would certainly have a thing for Gene Starwind.
Yeah kind of like that.
Outlaw Star is the story of a man who has a fear of outerspace after an attack that killed his father and crash landed him of Sentinel III. Through a series of ill advised odd jobs he winds up on an intergalactic treasure hunt. He faces hitmen (and hitwomen, and teams up with some of them) and faces the MacDougall brothers who killed his father. He’s kind of maladjusted- Gene is brash and perverted, his best friend and business partner is 12, he’s a braggart and he’ll do anything for a dollar… or oldschool ammo.
But he can be sweet (when he’s not trying to impress anyone) usually to Melfina, sometimes to Twilight Suzuka. Mostly he has a live fast, die hard philosophy. I mean, he uses magic bullets that deplete his life force to take on Tao Priests.
He’s a bad ass. And look at that red hair! Gauged ears, punk cliche tattoos?
Just one of those flawed retro-future heroes, he’s often compared to Trigun’s scarred up, flashily coifed, troubled protagonist, Vash the Stampede. But Gene is without an angel arm or any “powers” of his own, a regular guy with a soul sucking sidearm who will casually share a meal with an alien assassin.
Gene proves he’s more than a perv when he promises that he will help the almost human android Melfina find out who she really is all while hunting for the galactic leyline and battling the MacDougalls, he thwarts legendary assassin Twilight Suzuka and then asks her to join his crew after she deems herself a failure for not killing him, he also takes pity on the outcast Ktarl Ktarl and puts up with her pompous showboating. All while mourning legendary space pirate “Hot Ice” Hilda. Clearly not fearful of strong women. Always a plus.
Best known for his roles in Barbershop and Seven Pounds, Michael Ealy came to my attention in the STILL NOT OFFICIALLY RENEWED SERIES “ALMOST HUMAN”… sorry for the caps, I’m panicking a little bit. He also had recurring roles on “The Good Wife” and “Californication”
But, like I said, he caught my eye as the “disco-faced” sometimes unstable DRN police robot, Dorian.
Although the plot revolved largely around Karl Urban’s character, John Kennex, Dorian added much needed humor -usually at John’s expense. He also had some deep plotlines himself, compassion for other DRN models, increasing aggravation that he’s the only DRN in the field and can’t relate to MXs, evolving to be a better police officer, a better partner..
But we aren’t here to talk about what a great character Dorian is, or what Michael Ealy added to the role (great delivery, sometimes a musical interlude, acting like a robot that acts like a human)… we’re here to look at Michael Ealy:
And just for good measure, suited up:
Ealy is appearing next in Think Like A Man, Too and then hopefully reprising his role as Dorian! Because I neeed him on my TV screen.
Funfact: He also played a detective in 2012’s Underworld:Awakening
And I don’t know why exactly, but this picture is so cute
