WoW - Wallpaper of the Week

This week, we have two guys with a superhero connection of sorts. One's played one, the other would like to.

The latter is reality star, model, and all-around fitness guy Scott Herman. He'll be 26 on Friday. Scott wants to play Captain America. Seeing him in the costume, I'd give him the part. Wasn't sure if he was tall enough, so I checked and found out he's 5'10". I would think Cap should be over 6 feet tall, and Scott "reads" shorter to me on screen. I thought he was more like 5'8".

As it is, Hollywood went in another direction. Which, let's face it, not the worst idea in the world.

Maybe Scott could start out as a supporting character in the prequel to 300, or on Spartacus: Blood and Sand.

By the way, regarding the last wallpaper above of Scott. Never done a "behind-the-scenes" wallpaper before, but when I saw that picture, I thought I'd give it a go. The result speaks for itself. You gotta love a guy who looks good coming or going.

To find out more about Scott, check him on Facebook and Twitter.

Next is somebody who has played a superhero. The most iconic superhero, in fact. Superman himself. That actor would be Brandon Routh, who turns 31 on Saturday. His last name rhymes with "mouth", and he sure does have a purty one. He played the Man of Steel in Superman Returns. Only seen the movie in bits on TV, but he acquits himself well. Sadly, it looks like that will be the only time he plays the role, since his Superman contract expired last year, and TPTB want to go in a "darker" direction. God help us all.

He has found work after, getting a regular part on Chuck earlier this year. To see more of him back in his soap days, lookie here.

WoW - Wallpaper of the Week - extra

This week's extra offering also features two dudes that have the same birthday, that being today.

Kevin Richardson was always my favorite Backstreet Boy. Perhaps because he was more of a Backstreet Man, since he was the oldest of the group. He's now 39. He left the group in 2006 to pursue other interests, and has managed to do OK for himself, doing plays and modelling.

I wonder if part of the reason he left is that he hardly ever got any solos. The only one I remember is in Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely. That's probably because he was the only baritone in the group, the other guys were tenors. He had what's often referred to as a "blending voice", which means that though he has a good singing voice, it doesn't stand out in a group, yet serves to enhance the whole. You can see and hear an example here. I know about it 'cause I have a voice like that, or so I've been told.

I didn't create the wallpapers above, but found them. Not really any good shots of him that haven't been wallpaper-ized.

Anyway, I do miss him, though, 'specially with the Boys touring again. Be more visible, Kevin, we wants to see you, Boy.

Dude! Seann William Scott is 34. When I saw American Pie, there was something about that Stifler guy that interested me. A certain CBS quality. That's "Cute But Stupid". The kind of straight guy you could convince to do some not-so-straight things. You know, like kissing another guy.

Then in 2003 he was suddenly all kinds of smokin'. Between doing a movie with the Rock and another as an action hero, he musta been working out overtime. Which definitely showed when he co-hosted the MTV Movie Awards that year with Justin Timberlake. When Seann came out like this, I almost wondered if Justin was jealous of that body.

I don't know if I can forgive him for The Dukes of Hazzard movie, though. Oh wait. That scene in Dude, Where's My Car?, which I mentioned above. That earned him a whole bunch of credit he ain't finished spending yet to counteract any crap he's done. Yep, even for the Dukes of Hazzard movie. I'm just hoping he'll do more stuff shirtless or minimally clothed. Because, dude, what a waste of a slammin' bod. And he's funny, which makes him that much hotter, dang him! More to see of Scott here.
