If you’re starting here, head back to http://ajbooks.blogspot.com for the first installment of my Man Candy Post. You won’t regret it.
Remember during my first post how I said most of the Man Candy I found looked half my age? I still hold to this axiom, but upon reflection I didn’t think it was fair I make everyone else suffer my lack of bravado. I also don’t think it would be right to glaze over the many “up and coming” (bad joke, couldn’t resist) young men that have recently graced the silver screen. Truth is I’m an avid movie buff, and some of these kids are really quite talented. I’m going to give you a taste of some of my faves, and you can watch for them in the coming years. Let’s see how close I am to predicting the next Matthew McConaughey, shall we?
Alex Pettyfer…Hellloooo, Alex! The first time I saw this kid was in the flick Beastly, and if you’ve seen it, you already know he’s in heavy make-up during most of the film (it’s a teen take on Beauty and The Beast – I could fib here and say I watched it because I have an eight year old daughter, but I’m a sucker for sappy teen flicks). Anyway, I wasn’t really all that impressed by the film or Alex, until I saw him again I Am Number Four, which I LOVED. I was all…WHAAA?? That’s the same kid?
Can you blame me? Alex has a James Dean-ish quality. He’s a very subtle actor, and I’m sorry, but those high cheekbones and that square jaw line drive me mad. Need I mention the rest of the package? Watch out for this kid. I predict he’s destined for BIG things…
Armand Hammer, or Armie to his friends. Rumor has it he was slated to star as The Lone Ranger playing opposite Johnny Depp as Tonto (uhhh…wow?), but I also read somewhere the deal had been scrapped. Either way, Armie has already shot to the top of my “this kid’s gonna be famous” list for his portrayal of the Winklevoss twins – yes, twice the Armie, twice the fun – in The Social Network. Bottom line, he’s a babe. Too bad I couldn’t find any pictures of him shirtless…and trust me, this wasn’t for lack of trying.
Are we having fun yet? Things are about to heat up! For more of my Favorite Man Candy head over to Sarah Grimm’s blog at http://www.authorsarahgrimm.blogspot.com See you there in just a sec, but leave me a comment first to enter the drawing for a free e-book of Jezebel’s Wish!
