Where the Boys Are…

Last Night Jimmy was reading me an article from 2001 (and not the space odyssey)

It was about a subject that interests me and not just because it is about the men’s… it was an article about future leading men. This is interesting because it listed quite a few men I haven’t heard of in years like Jay Hernandez and Kip Pardue. I have been wondering where a generation of actors went… and how we unfortunately ended up with Shia LaBeouf and Zac Efron??? Men/boys that I am so just not into:

Granted there have been tragedies… Heath Ledger and Brad Renfro both had promising careers.

But that whole generation of actors isn’t gone… I know there is more serious actors than Orlando Bloom and Jake Gyllenhaal. Come on Hire these guys so we don’t have to see Shia like every 3 minutes.

Where did Ben Savage go??  How did everyone liked him meeting the world as a boy but not as a man???

 And for that matter where is a Ryder Strong?? Quite candidly every girl my age adored him… and you really cannot deny it. What has he been up to lately??

and my last TV actor… Christopher Ralph! Remember “in a Heartbeat???” or “Animorphs”???  Yeah him… I know Christine remembers him. I also will be honest and say he was totally in my locker in High School. And how is that blond guy from Animorphs still acting… ewww.

Lets switch to movie stars…….

What happened to Chris Klein? I mean he isn’t with visual blight Katie Holmes anymore… can someone give him a job? That doesn’t involve pie???

What about Jesse Bradford?? He totally brought it in “Bring it On” and in “Flags of Our Fathers”… It was so hard to find a showing of his last movie “My Sassy Girl”… and now he has a movie called Table for Three coming out… WHICH LOOKS AWESOME!

What about Ryan Phillippe?? He was a good actor. “Cruel Intentions” “GosfordPark” Yeah I know, Reese got the acting career in the divorce… sure he may be a bit of a slime… but Jude Law gets acting roles too! And that man is a slimey limey.

Where is Andrew Keegan? Was it his complete jerk role in “10 things I hate about you” that killed his acting career… because I think so.

And what ever happened to  Freddy PrinzeJr.??? He was like the one of the only not completely white heartthrobs of the early millennium… He was everywhere making mushy teen films like “Down to you” and “She’s All that”… was it his role as Freddy in “Scooby Doo” that killed it? Because I would rather see Freddy than Adrian Grenier.

And why does no one but the indie kids like Jason Schwartzman? My friends and I have adored him since the early millennium. Phantom Planet’s spicy little drummer. “Rushmore” “Slackers” “Darjeeling Limited” “I ♥ Huckabees” and “Marie Antoinette”… he’s like the coolest man ever..

Why is Gael Garcia Bernal not a bigger star? I suppose he’s just too cool for American kids… but maybe it’s good not to be cool. I think he may be one of the best younger actors… and I would watch him in any language.

So think of these men anytime you want to hire Mr. Le Beef. There are other actors out there.

or do as i do and think of Rufio… who you totally think of  too… don’t deny it

Wait until I create the sequel to this “Where my Girls At” Missing lady teen stars.
