When I was a little girl (let me enjoy this, I only get to be a little girl in flashbacks) I didn’t watch a lot of TV but I did tend to watch MTV at night. I thought it was like getting a glimpse at adults. Of course, in retrospect, it really wasn’t. It was more like a bunch of 20 somethings acting silly which can be a lot of fun. For years when I’d hear something about this show The State I remembered the title and watching sketch comedy on MTV back in the day. That’s as far as it went though. I didn’t remember the actual show at all. However it turns out I’ve been watching and enjoying the collected works of the cast (also writers) of the show for years. Recently I’ve been marathoning the show on Netflix and it’s so sarcastically hilarious. What am I getting at? This was the springboard of the fantastic Ken Marino’s career.

I first noticed Ken Marino as nice and sexy Officer Russotelli in 2000’s 101 Ways (The Things a Girl Will Do to Keep Her Volvo). I happened to be surfing movies channels years ago, came across and was absorbed by it. I recently rewatched it and still enjoyed it immensely. It’s about a young female writer trying to get by. Marino plays the only normal guy in the film so I didn’t realize he was a comedic actor.

As time went by I’d see him in small roles here and there and go “Oh, it’s that hot guy” but I didn’t know his name or follow his career. One of those times was when he played one of Phoebe’s many love interests on Charmed. Yes, I was a huge Charmed fan.

I was really happy to see him in recent years opposite his The State costar Michael Ian Black on Reaper as part of a cool gay demon couple. He also really shined in The Ten. You can watch his whole part in that film by viewing the top 2 videos.

What caused me to be so enamored with him as of late though is his kick ass performance as team leader Ron Donald on Party Down. Ron Donald is always trying to be optimistic (as with his Soup R’ Crackers goal) but things just never seem to go his way. I really dig him in this role because I have a thing for big doofy guys. I am attracted to a lot of different men but if I had a type it would be the big dumb guy.

Obviously Marino himself is very intelligent though. He’s a writer, producer and director. Most recently he directed the season 2 finale of Party Down. There’s a lot of talk about Party Down coming to an end after this season because it’s more of a labor of love than a cash cow for the cast but I’m really hoping this doesn’t happen because it’s definitely one of the funniest shows out there right now. Marino has been very vocal in his distaste of members of the cast leaving the show and his co-star Martin Starr has also expressed worry over the show’s future on twitter. I really hope a 3rd season somehow gets made.

There is no way I could go into all of his roles. Go check out his filmography and see what appeals to you.

FUN FACTS:
Marino is married to Erica Oyama who appeared on another MTV show Undressed. They have one child.

“My big theory is that comedy is a lot like porno now: there’s something out there for everyone.”-Ken Marino

WRITE

I think we should write Ken Marino and tell him how amazing he is. He is so underrated that while putting this together I couldn’t find any fansites for him and had to get some of the pics from his own, abandoned Myspace page.

The Sexy Bradley Cooper

Posted by missemmamm on June 11, 2010

Guy on Guy Action in Wet Hot American Summer

Ripping off his clothes “to save a life” on Nip/Tuck

Bradley Cooper first came to my attention in 2005. I had never watched the show Alias because I thought it looked boring. Prior to the 4th season premiere though they were heavily advertising it. I didn’t have anything else to watch so I caught the season premiere. Of course I was hooked. I, as usual, was broke and had to get the DVDs used cheaply on eBay. Back then the sets retailed for over $40. I actually bought season 3 before 1 and 2 because it was the only one I could get really cheap at the time. Confusing but I still got into it. A month or so later I picked up the other 2. Going through the series I thought this Will guy was so cute.

In 2005 I caught Bradley Cooper’s appearances in Wedding Crashers and was all upset like “How could they make him a jerk?”. Later when I became a guide the only questions I ever had about him were “Who’s the asshole in Wedding Crashers?” and I’d sigh.

Then he got the lead in the Fox series Kitchen Confidential. I thought, awesome, he’s gonna be a star. No, the show was canceled hella quick. In the series he was playing a fictionalized version of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.

In 2007 he had a memorable role as actor Aiden Stone in Season 5 on one of my favorite shows, Nip/Tuck. Of course, he killed it.

In 2008 he was the lead in the awesome horror flick Midnight Meat Train but it was rushed in and out of theaters. You should definitely check it out though.

Then last year I was visiting family in Maryland and we went to see Fast & Furious. In front of it they had the trailer for The Hangover. I thought this was really cool because I had my first trip to Vegas planned for the next month. The movie looked hilarious. It turns out that what it took for him to become a star was a big budget comedy. Ever since then I now get “Who’s the sexy guy from The Hangover?” when working. I much prefer that description. Later that year he co-starred with Sandra Bullock in the awful looking romantic comedy All About Steve.

Most of his other roles were minor or I’ve tried to scrub the movie from my brain. (Case in point: He’s Just Not That Into You, ack!).

Later I realized that he was one of the guys making out (yum) in the hilarious Wet Hot American Summer. He also played a hot jerk on an episode of Sex and the City.

Today his big budget action film The A-Team opens. Frankly I know nothing about the show except from stuff they’ve shown on Family Guy. He looks down right sexy in it though and I like those types of movies so I’ll be seeing it soon.

They are also in pre-production on The Hangover 2. I hope it’s as funny as the 1st. In 2011 he will also appear in a thriller called The Dark Fields which sounds pretty neat.

FUN FACTS:

He’s 6′1 but wanted to be taller.

“I had size 12 feet when I was 10, so I thought I was going to be 6′ 8″. My goal was to be able to dunk a basket. I wound up being 6′ 1″ with size 14 feet. I got the raw end of the deal.”-Bradley Cooper (from IMDB.com)

He’s currently dating Renee Zellweger. I think they make a cute couple.

The Sexy Russell Crowe

Posted by missemmamm on May 15, 2010

When it comes to a lot of actors I liked them before they got really famous. Off the top of my head I’m thinking of Gerard Butler and Leonardo DiCaprio. However when it comes to Russell Crowe I fell for him when everyone else did when Gladiator hit the screens in 2000.

Then I had to track down as many of his other flicks as possible. This is why I have a box full of video tapes with him in odd movies/roles like the Salma Hayek relationship flick (Breaking Up), the one where he hits a woman (L.A. Confidential), the one where he plays a killer android (Virtuosity), the “western” (The Quick and the Dead), the one where he’s a skinhead (Romper Stomper) and the one he gained weight and made himself look aged for (The Insider). Sure some were bad and others were not my speed.

Looking at Crowe’s resume I’m unsure if I would have watched most of his movies if he wasn’t in them. I still stand by Virtuosity being tacky good fun though. I even had the book adaptation of Proof of Life because it had a sex scene in it that was edited from the movie and one of his band’s cds (who I totally supported until they went Christian). In the 2000’s he went on to make some great, but depressing films. All in all I find it crazy how great Crowe is that I’d basically watch him in anything.

I’m still kicking myself for not going to be an extra in The Next Three Days which was shot in Pittsburgh.

This may be one of the most rambling things I’ve ever written. Oh well, what can I say? Russell Crowe is a sexy, manly man from Down Under who doesn’t exactly inspire coherent thoughts from me.

If you need to watch some Russell Crowe movies immediately and have Netflix streaming you can currently check out The Quick and the Dead, The Insider and The Silver Brumby, Silver Stallion: King of the Wild Brumbies. (You must already be logged into your account.)

P.S. You can totally see his fine ass in Virtuosity. Go here to see his booty!. You’re welcome.

Bonus: Follow Russell Crowe on twitter and go see Robin Hood this weekend!

Tenderfeet: 12 Hotties Under 30

Posted by missemmamm on March 10, 2010

I recently did a photo post about hot actors when they were younger, “When They Were Young”, and was thinking well there have to be some actors who are young right now that I also have the hots for. It took me a little longer though because I’m not into the who Taylor Lautner/Zac Efron types. I like the oddballs or deeper guys. Yes, I know that 5 of them turn 30 sometime this year but tough cookies.

Shia LeBeouf (06/11/86)
Here’s the thing, I hated him back in the day. I used to be close to one of my nieces. We would always hang out for a week or two every summer. One summer she had me watching Even Stevens. So I thought of him as this annoying little kid when he popped up in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle & Constantine. Then he hosted SNL and I no longer worried that he would ruin the 4th Indy for me. I even own that Rear Window knockoff he’s in. I don’t think that the trailer for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps looks that hot be he does in his suits, yum.

Emile Hirsch (03/13/85)
I’m a big fan of his flick The Girl Next Door . You may have also seen him in Lords of Dogtown, Alpha Dog or Taking Woodstock.

Patrick Fugit (10/27/82)
I felt like a perv when I first liked him in Almost Famous but it turns out he was already legal, yay! You may have also seen his turns in White Oleander, Spun, Saved!, The Amateurs (hilarious, BTW) or Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant.

Seth Rogen (04/15/82)
I’ve had a thing for him since The 40 Year Old Virgin. He has also appeared in Freaks and Geeks, Superbad, Knocked Up, Pineapple Express, Zack and Miri Make a Porno & Observe and Report. He’s recently dropped some lbs to be the new Green Hornet. Check him out in these SNL sketches The Fast and the Bi-Curious & Like a Boss

Yes, Elias in Clerks 2 was weird and kinda creepy but also a little adorable.

Chris Evans (06/13/81)
Evans came to my attention in Not Another Teen Movie as a jock spoof and that’s still my favorite role of his. You may also recognize him from Push or The Fantastic Four. His film The Losers opens in April.

Ben Foster (10/29/80)
It was very hard to find some good pics of Foster because he is known for his dark, disconcerting roles. As someone who was in high school during Columbine I watched and discovered him in the flick Bang Bang You’re Dead in 2002. You may have also caught him on Six Feet Under or in X-Men: The Last Stand or Pandorum.

Macaulay Culkin (08/26/80)
Blame the Oscars for reminding me of Culkin. He’s only a little older than me & I too watched Home Alone. But it was his turns in Party Monster & Will & Grace that gave me a little crush on him.

Jason Schwartzman (06/26/80)
Schwarztman burst onto the seen in Rushmore and then continued with roles in Slackers, Spun, Shopgirl, Marie Antoinette and The Darjeeling Limited. I knew I was crushing hard when I still wanted him even when he was completely creepy in Slackers. I also own a Phantom Planet cd and find the part where he fingers that chick in The Darjeeling Limited very hot.

Channing Tatum
(04/26/80)

I haven’t seen all of his films but I have to say he is totally hot in Step Up (where he met his future wife, aw) and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. He is sweet in interviews I’ve read about him. I will be renting Dear John when it comes out because I have an embarrassing penchant for romcoms. Oh and you know he’s totally ripped.

When They Were Young

Posted by missemmamm on February 26, 2010

Photobucket
So not too long ago my friend scodal posted this photo of Christopher Walken that was taken when he was young. For like a second I was creeped out. Now I’ve actually had a crush on Walken since the ’90s when he got all uber cool doing the SNL hosting gigs & that Fatboy Slim video. But it still caught me off guard because I had never seen him young before. Well I ultimately thought it was hot and made it my desktop background.

Last night I was screwing around on the net and thought maybe I’d do a search for hot actors when they were younger. I think that many actors are hot at any age but it still fun. P.S. I do not own the rights to the photos & didn’t take the time to save all of the site names I found them on but if 1 is from your site & you want credit (or it removed) let me know. Thanks.
