Action Alex Gets Active



There was happiness and rejoicing around chez Vera today as Dreamworks released the first teaser trailer for I Am Number Four starring Alex "My Future Ex-Husband Número Uno" Pettyfer in the title role.  Here's my major quibble:  why can't American film producers figure out a way to let Alex use his real English accent instead of  a fake American one.  His natural accent is absolutely swoon-worthy, and to me his American accent is still ever-so-slightly unconvincing . It must be convincing to someone though.  I recently read a Twitter comment that assumed his accent in Wild Child was fake.

Paddy Mitchell Doesn't Work Often




From what I know about Paddy Mitchell, easily one of the most beautiful boys in the world, he's more interested in playing Rugby than posing for pictures, and he's still a full-time student and a part-time model.  That's why we don't see Paddy nearly as often as we see some of our other favorites like Francisco or River.  But when we do... wow!

The Sunday Round-up

I was feeling lazy today and I thought that, between naps, I would throw together a quasi-random selection of some of the best beauty I've collected from ye olde internets in the last week. Quick and easy, right?  But bah,  in the end this took longer than 90% of my posts.  I never realized just how much stuff I download in a week.  Enjoy.

Hooray For The Internet! And Harrison Gilbertson!










If it weren't for the power of the internet and the international blog phenomenon known as jmcfly's Dreamboats, I might never have become acquainted with Harrison Gilbertson, this 16-year-old actor from Adelaide. (That's in Australia, the land down under, don't you know, where beer does flow and men chunder, or so Men At Work tell me. Also, women glow and men plunder, but that goes without saying.)  Mind you, I haven't seen him act yet, but the advanced word is good, and just looking at him you can see that he has something. One so hates to use the word "It", but yeah, he clearly has "It."  I'll be watching out for this one.
