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.
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.
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
