Welcome To The Island: Father Gabriel Byrne

Too bad I am not Catholic or else I could have given up posting late blog entries for Lent.

But being the heathen that I am, not only can I miss my blog deadline due to two consecutive nights of excess and lust, but I also get to think impure thoughts about actors who have played religious figures. My island inductee this week is Gabriel Byrne. Quite the paradox with this man, who traded in his starched white collar for his role as a priest in Stigmata and immediately took a role as the Prince of Darkness in End of Days. No matter if he fights on the side of good or evil, he is seriously sexy doing either. Rugged jawline, sharp blue eyes and the sexiest accent complete with Irish lilt. I would fall to my knees for Gabriel Byrne... but I probably wouldn't be doing much praying.

Say a little prayer for Roadtripper, Father Gabriel, because that last statement may have seriously paved my way to Hell! Until then, we always have the island...


Welcome to the Island: Actors as Religious Figures

As Roadtripper and I pretty much have a reserved seat on the roller coaster to Hell, we have no problem using Lent as an opportunity to add actors who have played religious figures as our next island additions. And I look no further than James Caviezel. Who you may ask? You may know him from Angel Eyes but he played none other than Jesus in Passion Of The Christ. You probably most remember him for his incredible, burn right into your soul eyes.

Just looking into those eyes and that face makes me imagine plenty of confession worthy thoughts. Welcome to the island James, Mary Magdalene has nothing on me.


Welcome To The Island: Uhh... What's His Name Again?

I watched a movie last night with the hottest guy in it.

What's his name?

Hmmm... I dunno. He has a great smile and cute dimples. Pretty blue eyes. Curly sun-streaked hair. But what is his name?

He kind of reminds me of Matthew McConaughey, only with better grooming habits. Or a sunnier Brad Pitt.

Ooooohhhh... it's Bradley Cooper. You know... that guy!

Welcome to the Island: You Know, That Guy

Everyone knows the marquee name movie stars: Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Will Smith, etc. But you also have "that guy." He seems to be in every third movie made but you never know the guy's name. And generally, that guy, is a better actor than the top billed star, stealing most scenes. So as Roadtripper and I salute "that guy", I present you with:

His name, I honestly don't remember right now, and besides Lost is on. But you probably remember him from Prison Break, The Longest Yard, Armageddon, and many other movies. Usually playing a dickhead. So why do I want him on the island? There is just something about "that guy." Welcome to the island, maybe with enough practice, you will become something more than that guy.
