He's Here, He's Keir

If you've ever watched United States of Tara you already know that 17 year old Keir Gilchrist is adorable as gay teen Marshall.  This week he gave us a good look and skinny boy fans nationwide rejoiced.

Bromance In The Air


We've already seen Gregg "Dimples" Sulkin and David "Abs" Henrie hot-tubbing together, but what could be sweeter than best bros competing against each other in Dance Dance Revolution?   Later they posed for the paparazzi,  Abs looking poised and handsome in head to toe black, and Dimples modeling yet another in his patented (by jaymcfly) line of self-tightening t-shirts, this one with a very cool assymetric henley collar. The bros even found time to hold hands, using cosmetics mogul Ava Anderson as a shield against prying eyes. Ah, young love! Platonic, I'm sure.

In completely unrelated news:  Hi Ricky Martin! We were all shocked, SHOCKED, by the news.

Callum Revisited

Skinny little Callum Wilson, who I featured on the Big Gay Blog almost a year ago, has a look that I think of as particularly British.  He started modeling when he was 16, his 18th birthday is (or was) sometime this year.  I think he's great looking, even when he appears to be clothed by Lady Gaga.

Alex Strips For Astrid

This interesting photo of an almost naked Alex Pettyfer just popped up on photographer Astrid Munoz's website.  That's not the only thing that popped up.

They Don't Have These Where I Buy Groceries




The latest boy from Brazil to try his hand at international modeling is 16-year-old Samuel Baio, who, according to Models.com, was discovered while he was working in a supermarket.  I have to assume they found him in the meat department.

Hidden Treasure





A few nights ago I watched this movie I got from Netflix called Rock The Paint, a low budget indie from 2005 which I thought was well intentioned but amateurish, preachy, and dramatically flaccid. I mention it here for one reason only. Douglas Smith.  He is a pleasure to watch in this and everything else in which I've seen him.

Heath






I just watched 10 Things I Hate About You for the first time in years and I cried a little because Heath Ledger at age 19 was so beautiful and perfect.

Latest Dispatches From Planet Pettyfer



Wow, it's been more than three months since I last spoke in a breathless tone of voice about Alex Pettyfer.  Some of you may have hoped that my complete obsession with him had wained a bit. I can assure you, it has not. I was just waiting until I had something worth sharing.

Two days ago Alex was in Las Vegas to promote Beastly, which is still four months from it's domestic theatrical  release, to take in the Cirque Du Soleil show "O" at The Bellagio, and to be honored as ShoWest's Male Star of Tomorrow.




More than one source has informed me that Beastly made a big hit at ShoWest, which is the world's largest trade convention for film exhibitors. This is  from After Elton:  "CBS Films showed a few pieces at ShoWest, and everyone yawned. Then they showed the upcoming Beastly, with Alex Pettyfer, Neil Patrick Harris, and Vanessa Hudgens, and the crowd of seen-it-all executives went nuts." 
In other news, rumors are swirling that the very people who made Shia LaBeouf a movie star have decided to get into the Alex Pettyfer business. Reports say that Alex is in negotiations to star in I Am Number Four, a science fiction extravaganza based on a not-yet-published novel by Oprah's least favorite author James Frey, to be produced by my least favorite director Michael Bay and directed by  D.J. Caruso  (Disurbia, Eagle Eye).   Not sure how I feel about this, especially if it keeps him from fulfilling his destiny of playing Jace in the film version of  The Mortal Instruments novels, but if it's good for Alex it's good for me.
Believe it or not,  this is an actual character sketch made for the forthcoming Mortal Instruments graphic novels.  Who does he remind you of?

Back in the real world, Alex was tortured photographed by Tyler Shields a few weeks ago, and although we haven't seen the photos yet we have seen some video of the photo session.  Poor Alex looks like he's about to die. (Either Alex has something in his eyes or Tyler has very bad breath.)  And still Alex somehow manages to remain smoking hot.







And last but not least are these year-old photos by Ram Shergill. Other pictures in the set were in Drama magazine, but these just surfaced here this week.  Alex is just one step away from the full monty in one of these and I am just one step away from cardiac arrest. Enjoy!
