I have a crush on…

Aaron Paul. Fortunately there’s a whole BuzzFeed section dedicated to him.

Update: This Aaron Paul slideshow is amazing.

Before I got hooked on Breaking Bad, I didn’t get the fuss. Continue reading

Actors, their parents and nudity

Watching Orange is the New Black, I couldn’t help but think “do the actors’ parents watch?”

I assume that if you’re Taylor Schilling or Laura Prepon, you’re so excited to be doing quality work on a well-written project like OITNB that it’s not your first concern. But then you’re shooting a shower scene, and both of you are topless. Then what?

It depends on the family, obviously, but with my parents, I just cringe thinking about nudity. Sometimes it inhibits what I write too.

How crummy to try to make it in television and film–with or without the support of family–only to get cast but have reservations about said family seeing your complete work!

Amanda Seyfried, who is currently promoting her film Lovelace, had this to say in US Weekly.

AmandaWhat do you think? If you were an actor, how would you deal?

I can relate.

Twitter Spotlight Jason McCool

I think you’ll have fun getting to know this DC-based musician, composer, actor, teacher and social media pro.

McCool. Yes, that is his real last name. It’s either a lot to live up to, or a great way to describe Jason. You be the judge.

Hugh Laurie saying ‘badonkadonk’

I have a well-established crush on Hugh Laurie. To the extent that I intend to see The Oranges in spite of the fact that the concept may be creepy.

As great as he was on House, I love hearing him speak with his natural British accent.

Somehow I missed this terrific video of Hugh on Ellen. Big shout-out to @tynie626 for making me aware of it.

Twitter Spotlight: Isaiah Mustafa

You know him as Old Spice Guy or from his film and TV roles, but there’s a lot more to Isaiah Mustafa.

Physically? This is a gorgeous man. But the way his heart comes through in his words, that’s what makes him spectacular in my opinion.

Here’s Isaiah in the Twitter Spotlight.

 

OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)

@isaiahmustafa: Compassion

  OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends

@isaiahmustafa: I have a very diverse group of friends. I like differences in people. I’m very lucky to know some interesting folk. The one thru-line in my relationships with people I call friends is that we accept each other for who we are without judgement.

  OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness

@isaiahmustafa: Happiness is a warm festive night with family, good food, good music and good people.

OneChicklette: Your idea of misery

@isaiahmustafa: Misery for me is hatred and ignorance.

Why isn’t Erika Christensen getting better big screen roles?

She is spectacular in Traffic, one of the eight or so DVDs I own and thus in heavy rotation given that Time Warner Cable won’t set me up for another week. As a result, I am wondering why Erika Christensen hasn’t had better film roles.

I watch her on Parenthood where I think she’s largely wasted (not to mention miscast).

She has kept a very low profile. Googling “Erika Christensen” only turns up a smattering of information including the fact that she is a Scientologist.

These are the things I contemplate when I should be doing things like, oh, unpacking my new apartment.
