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.

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.

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.

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
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!
