WoW - Wallpaper of the Week - extra

Jason Brooks

Jeffrey Donovan

A couple more. So earlier this year I devoted time to cast members of The Pretender. This post is of a couple of semi-regulars, who coincidentally have birthdays only a day apart, and whose first names begin with 'J'.

First we'll look at Jason Brooks, who played Miss Parker's boyfriend, and is 44 today. I vaguely noticed him when I watched the show, thinking he wasn't bad looking. I certainly didn't see him before that while he was doing Days of our Lives.

I more than noticed him once he was on Baywatch Hawaii. Yes, even over Michael and the other Jason. Compare and contrast at your leisure. He's stayed employed since then, but not done anywhere near as much shirtlessness, more's the pity. The latest thing he did was a minor role in that movie. If only they did another Baywatch reunion. One can dream, can not one?

Next is Jeffrey Donovan, who'll be 42 tomorrow. He was Jarod's brother Kyle. He did tend to play the psycho. Probably b/c he had this dangerous look and vibe to him. Though once in a while, he did have roles where he wasn't quite so crazy. But through his career, he's always been sexy somehow. It's not like he's classically handsome, and has anyone else noticed the man has no chin? And yet, he oozes this inexplicable animal magnetism.

Finally he found the role that seems to fit him like a glove, Michael Weston on Burn Notice. And who knew how good he looked when he smiled, much less that he was funny? His character has this lovely dry sarcasm, plus he gets to play off Bruce Campbell regularly. Comic genius. I hope the irony of Jeffrey the Chinless Wonder working opposite the "Killer Chin" is not lost on anybody. You know, maybe it's the spy mystique, but Jeffrey's gotten even hotter, if that's even possible. He was featured last year in TV Guide's Hot Bodies of Summer. More to see of that here and here.

I do wish he'd lay off the accents, though; they're so hit or miss. Sometimes they're good. But other times, it sounds like Jeffrey's been taking lessons at the David Boreanaz school of dialect.
