Two actors who are "gay for pay". Oh, get your mind out of the gutter, folks, and get in the sewer with the rest of us. No, wait, lemme explain.
The first is Ryan Phillippe, whose birthday it happens to be today. I had quite forgotten that his initial major role was playing the first gay teenager on a daytime soap, One Life to Live, back in 1993. He went on to do roles that showed off his body, which is a good thing. Turns out he's a better than decent actor too. And each year the pretty transmogrifies into more dang sexy. What he's going to be like in his forties scarce bears thinking.
The vampire mania continues with tonight's premiere of the new CW series The Vampire Diaries, starring the improbably beatific Ian Somerhalder. Another model turned actor, who can actually act. He was a WB-CW "It" boy for a while, first appearing on Young Americans, then guesting on Smallville for a few episodes. Then there was Lost, which, honestly, I could never get into. He did a Sci-Fi Channel movie recently, ironically titled Lost City Raiders, which made The Day After Tomorrow look like a documentary. Now he's back to the CW for The Vampire Diaries. I'll give it a shot, but as I've mentioned previously, I'm just not that into the whole vampire thing. Still, with Somerhalder bringing the pretty, it'll at least be easy on the eyes. And it'll be on right before Supernatural.

Two birthdays this week, Scott Patterson (who'll be 51 on Friday) and Paul Walker (he'll be 36 on Saturday).
The wallpaper of Scott is from Gilmore Girls, which wasn't that long ago. As Luke, even under the baseball cap, the scruff and the flannel, he was sexy. Then later in the show's run, he finally had some bedroom scenes. All I can say is "Whoa!"
Next is Paul, the quintessential California surf-boy, and polar opposite to Scott. The wallpapers are derived from publicity photos from Into the Blue, where you get to see a good bit of him. As far as his acting goes, well, he looks pretty, and is willing to show what nature gave him. Yeah, plot's not a big consideration for a Paul Walker movie. Probably the best example of his body of work is Joy Ride.
If you haven't guessed by now, my taste in men is rather eclectic.
