Oh oh oh! I just realized I never completed the First Crush-Teen Crush-Actors We Like Now Trilogy.
Remember First Crush? I was sweet on H.R. Pufnstuf as a tot. Reader Bess liked Floyd the Muppet.
Remember Teen Crush? I do. Colin Firth and George Clooney made a strong showing in the comments.
So how about today? Truly, I like everyone in the movies and television a little bit, and many people a lot of bit. There's no one I'd skip seeing a film over, just because they were in it.
But here's a trio I'm particularly sweet on at the moment:
Amy Poehler. My admiration for her is pretty limitless. I'm sure she has faults but they're probably interesting faults, right? The confident kindness she projects is, well. Resplendent.
Richard Ayoade. He's hilarious on "The I.T. Crowd" and he's an excellent director, too. Did you see "Submarine"? He also directs a lot of videos for bands like the Arctic Monkeys. And please. The glasses.
Christoph Waltz. I do lean toward comedic actors, but I thought I'd include a dramatic entry as well. He maintains a calm, steady center in his acting. His even approach is attractive and always intriguing.
Who is your favorite nowadays?
