I’m behind, so I’m posting two back-to-back. I’ll do one when I get up tomorrow, and then I’ll consider myself caught up. F.Y.I.
I’m making Eric Bana my Hottie McDottie of the Day because his new film, Star Trek, premieres tomorrow. in it, he plays the villain, and his pretty hair and features are hidden under strange make-up, so I’m going to take the chance to remind you just how hot he is. He’s an Aussie, and has been in movies like Troy, The Other Boleyn Girl, Hulk, and Munich. Besides Star Trek, he has two other flicks coming out this year, Judd Apatow’s Funny People and The Time Traveler’s Wife, based on the best-selling book.
Why He’s More Than Just Eye Candy: He’s extremely versatile. Apparently he’s a pretty funny guy, having started his career back in Australia as a comedian. Hopefully we’ll get to see a bit of this in Funny People. He’s also not afraid to be a chameleon for his roles. In one of his first films, Chopper, he gained 30 pounds to play a bald, fat, disturbed criminal. This from the guy who once received an award for “Most Popular Comedian” in his native country.
On a side note, though I prefer to not show pictures of my hotties in various states of undress because I prefer not to objectify them like pieces of meat, I totally would not blame you if you went and looked up pictures of him with his shirt off (or rented the movie Troy, as he’s shirtless for large portions of the film). That’s all I’m saying.
