This month's dude is 22 year old (well, in a couple of weeks) Jud Birza. He looks like a "dude", doesn't he?
This was someone David really lucked out with. Jud starred in 1313: Nightmare Mansion (at one point titled A Dream Within a Dream). Then he auditioned and got on Survivor: Nicaragua. He got the nickname of Fabio due to his long hair, though he's not nearly as muscular, but is way prettier than the original. Anyway, Jud won the grand prize, and David got a marketing bonus for 1313: Nightmare Mansion when it was finally released. David elaborates in this interview. And you can see a little of Jud's work in this trailer for the movie.
Preparing posts for the next few weeks, an unintentional theme evolved. All turned out to have a gay connection. Don't know how long it'll continue, but will last at least until the end of June (a/k/a Pride week).
So this week's post we have two guys who've both played gay. First is Gregory Michael whose 30th birthday is today. Y'all should know him as one of the leads on Dante's Cove. When is that coming back, by the way? Here! said there'd be another season, but it's been out of production since the end of '07. It's looking like we'll have to get our campy gay horror fix from our old reliable source. Greg has been doing Greek, but since that series ended a few months ago, he's free for a Dante's Cove reunion.
Then we have Justin Long, who'll turn 33 on Thursday. He's one of those guys who's gonna like 10 years younger than he actually is. He's done quite a bit of horror and drama roles, but I think his gift is for comedy. I've liked him since 1999's Galaxy Quest, which was his screen debut. Hasn't done bad for himself since then. Such a cutie-pie Justin still is.
If you noticed a birthday missing below, I am featuring someone else later this week.
