Y’all remember Kyle Chandler from Friday Night Lights. We never watched that show, but we do recall him from a much younger role in his career – Homefront. We loved that show and the theme song. Yes, he moved on to the big screen – most notably his role in the King Kong reboot – but that throwback to simpler times show will stay with him always.
Well, we stopped by Mark Wahlberg set of Broken City, camped out in the Bx, yesterday, and spotted this dude who we swear is Chandler – if a sourpuss faced one. We kept an eye on him as he walked towards the craft table and then were bemused as we watched him fumbling with one of the machine. Brother man looked frustrated as all hell.
We went and snapped a few pics of him, well, just cuz.
But here is the thing… Oddly enough, we looked up the cast roster and his name doesn’t appear anywhere on it.
Are we totally wrong?
Is this a look-a-like?
We didn’t & still don’t think so – less we are seldom mistaken. (We may forget a name but seldom mistake recognizing them.)
Another question we were left with is by way of this strapping muscle papi. His trailer – for supporting characters – list him as “bodyman”. No such listing on IMDB – as only the principles and producers appear listed.
But if any of y’all know his name, please drop us a line STAT!
UPDATE: The muscled papi’s name is Frank Fortunato cast as Kevin the Body Man.
The Time 100 issue featuring the Most Influential People ever – of this past year – rolled around with their annual gala showcasing their long ass list of honorees at the Time Warner building in NYC. A potpourri of luminaries from politicians to the world of celebrities and do-gooders. No one is left out. And with that comes an avalanche of folks you fnd yourself asking ‘who the hell is that?’ when they make their way down the carpet. Don’t judge – you would likely be in the same boat for half, if not more than we are… But we weren’t totally out of the know – cuz big & small screen personalities we know! Darren Criss – who is set to have his own Glee spin-off on the horizon, Chris Colfer, Mark Wahlberg, Kerry Washington, Blake Lively (we asked the same thing…), Amy Poehler, Carmelo Anthony & Lala Vazquez, Gov. Chris Christie, Mayor Cory Booker, Harvey Weinstein, Christiane Amanpour, Brian Williams, Rain, Aziz Ansari and Takeshi Kanno – to name a few.
You may be asking yourselves ‘did they schedule the event early this year?’ (It could happen.) Well that is true. This years event was finally scheduled a whole week ahead of the famed Met Gala which generally usurps all coverage of the event. And good thing too, cuz this years’ museum fete coincides with another event – a certain touted wedding of the century – which is on a constant countdown. So perhaps its the best decision the powers at be could have made to garner a bit of attention for this momentous shindig.
We haven’t concluded reading thru the mag but are widely surprised – almost as much as Lively making the list – that the royals aren’t mentioned in there some where. God only knows a certain numbe of tabloid TV shows are still going at shoving that damn wedding down America’s throat like it was a hillbilly that balding heir and one-time pretty boy was marrying and not some bland British girl who wears ugly hats.
Back on the Time 100 front… The event has gotten so big that it comes with three – yes, that is right – three step-and-repeat sections. And they still run out of room! Ain’t that some shit?
Well, we are just thankful to have been afforded a spot! Its as rewarding to us as if we were named in the prestigious publication itself.
“The Other Guys’” world premiere took place in NYC last night. And the step-and-repeat seemed to go on for a lifetime – even with some cast members missing.
We rarely get THE premiere here in gotham – sometimes we get overlooked entirely. Salt for instance! So this truly was a big to do.
Eva Mendes rocked a grey cocktail dress and black stilettos – the bow was diviine girl!, while her costars Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg and Ray Stevenson looked all so handsome.
But it was Ray Stevenson who caught my attention. Why, you may ask? Well you might recall him from the HBO “Rome” series. He played that kickass alpha-male with a heart of gold. On the carpet he exuded testosterone and I was giddywith excitement. I swear I wanted to leap into his arms and find myself protected and manhandled! (Don’t you judge now…)
Also in attendance were the yummy Bobby Cannavale, Steve Coogan, Damon Wayans Jr. and Mr. Samuel L. Jackson – who I happened to spot at Jones Beach a few weeks ago sporting a Speedo. No, I didn’t have time to snap a photo. The camera is not attached to a limb I tell y’all!
Other notable attendees: Brooke Shields, Lindsay Sloan, Jimmy Fallon, Rob Thomas, Zoe Lister Jones – wearing what can only be described as a “American Pie faux-pas – and Tess Kartel.
Twilight beefcake and one time AF model – Kellan Lutz is taking on the spokesmodel CK underwear campaign reigns, report say. And the powers that be are looking to bring back the “Marky Mark” style to the homoerotic levels it has come to be known for.
Now, Mark Wahlberg’s CK photos caused many a wet moment – for both boys and girls. (Let me not get into that with you on here…) So it is a no brainer that they would look to have Lutz to re-envision the moment. Lutz is solid muscle! (And Taylor Lautner is unavailable due to his rumored Armani Xchange something or other.) But truth be told, Lutz has some serious inches… undies to fill, cuz Wahlberg packed a mouth load!
All knee dropping aside, the CK ads have a history of being fairly steamy, so it will be fairly interesting to see how this plays out for the under-utilized saga cast-member. Especially since his “people” have been trying to market him as an “actor.”
