In Which I Refuse To Talk About Elections And Instead Gush Over Weird But Hot Guys

I'm probably the only woman in the world who doesn't think Brad Pitt is all that. He looks better post-Troy, and he's aging well, but he's just too...pretty.

Oddly enough, my boat tends to get floated by guys like this:

Christopher Eccleston. He's known for being the Doctor Who in Leather, but I loved him in Elizabeth. Nothing he has should work, but it does.

I don't really watch Doctor Who that much anymore, I swear! But I adore David Tennant. With a serene, serious face, he's an absolute matinee idol movie star. But when he smiles his chin draws up, his eyes bug out, and his eyebrows attach to his hairline. So cute I could eat him with a spoon.

Nice guys do finish first. At least, this one does with me. Special Agent McGee from NCIS (Sean Murray) is so normal and so nice and so geeky he shouldn't be this yummy. But he's also smart, loyal, and honorable. A hero in my book.

But my plugs really get sparked by competence. Jean Reno was great in Ronin and The Professional, but I got all swoony over his super secret service soldier in Godzilla. He just flat got the job done, you know? He could save me from a mutated iguana ANYTIME.
What about you? Any non-traditionally gifted guys you'd want on your romance cover?

When the first picture came up, my initial thought was, "Why does Robyn think Vladmir Putin is hot?"

I agree on Jean Reno. If I ever look outside and see that the Geico gecko got all nuclear? I would so call him.

p.s. my word verification today is "handi"..with an i. Sounds like an easy cocktail waitress.

I can just hear the convo in the bar:

"Hi, I'm Handi."

"I'm sure you are."

I love Jean Reno as well. Another not-so typical guy I fell for is Harvey Keitel in "The Piano"--smoking!

my word verification is: etathi. Sounds like something out of Star Wars.

Jean Reno is Hawt! So is Brad Pitt, but yes he's just too pretty. And the Dr. Who in leather guy? double hawtness.

I also adore Alan Rickman, especially as Snape.

Never thought Brad Pitt was all-that either. But, I don't particularly like those pictues. My husband says all the guys I think are hot are really just glorifications of him. Could be. Liam Neeson does bear a resemblance.
I think I'm the kind of girl who likes a hero fresh from the fight and kind of scruffy-looking.

"Who's scruffy-looking? I must have hit close to the mark to get her all riled up like that."
