Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Damn. As if I wasn't already crushing on Slattery...

  • DeltaJuliet

    Wow....no kidding.....

  • Three_nineteen

    Netflix sent me A Thousand Acres this week. The movie is from 1997 and stars Jessica Lange, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Jason Robards. Pfieffer's two teenage daughters are played by Elisabeth Moss and Michelle Williams.

  • That Christina Hendricks picture reminds me: I was flipping channels the other day and ran across a re-run of 'Angel.' It was the one with the Puritan vampire serial killer and I all of a sudden realized that said vampire was Jeremy Renner.

  • LexieW

    You just reminded that I once read The Indian in the Cupboard AND saw the movie. Several times.

  • MarTeaNi

    I'd have put Masterminds on the list. Vincent Kartheiser vs. Patrick Stewert in one of the 90sest movies ever.


  • BWeaves

    James Wolk looks like Ron Livingston.

    I did not recognize John Slattery. RAWR.

    I agree with whoever said Kevin Rahm looks like James Spader.

    I remember Christina Hendricks on Firefly, but I don't remember her on Angel.

  • e jerry powell

    I was thinking EXACTLY that same thing about Wolk!

  • e jerry powell

    How does nobody ever go the Making Love route with Harry Hamlin?

  • Rocabarra

    The Indian in the Cupboard just BLEW MY MIND!! I always hated that movie because I thought the kid had a snivelly face (even though I couldn't express it in quite those words as a child myself).

    Now it all makes so. much. sense.

  • Viking

    He got kind of snively on Angel too, but I would never have guessed he'd have grown up to play such a weasel.

  • annie

    Pare is suddenly cool in my eyes. That show was awesome! I think. Who else gets a weird feeling about that picture of Bob Benson?

  • kushiro -

    Vincent Kartheiser looks like he has aged zero years since that movie.

  • Ruby Rose

    He still looks the same as he did in Angel, which weirds me out.

  • L.O.V.E.

    I have watched The Indian In The Cupboard with my daughter too many times to count, and never realized that was fucking Pete Campbell.

    You sure that's not Shawn from Boy Meets World? Sheesh.

  • How did I miss Christina Hendricks on Angel? And Jessica Pare has apparently had a rockin body for quite a while.

  • apsutter

    Jessica Pare's breasts are NOT that big and they look oddly lumpy. And January Jones looks odd in regular clothes with "normal" hair

  • Ruby rose

    There's a weirdly chunky seam running down the center of her bra cup, I think. I sometimes get that when I wear ~fancy bras~ under thin shirts.

  • apsutter

    Ooh la la...fancy!!! Lol. But I think you may be right! It seems like frilly and fancy bras always fit kind of wonky

  • They look just fine to me. I don't think there is anything at all wrong with that picture.

  • Mrs. Julien


  • apsutter

    I wasn't trying to be gross but she just looked different and strange here. But I've never really seen her before the show and in MM she is incredibly skinny so I guess it makes sense.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Alright, then.

  • Fiona

    Check out Hot Tub Time Machine or Lost and Delirious. Jessica Pare's tits are that big. She was carrying more weight there.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Again, seriously?

  • annie

    They are definitely doing something unnatural.

  • TheReinaG

    Kevin Rahm will always be Monica's idiot sous chef from an episode of Friends for me. It took me two or three episodes to figure out where I recognized him from. Where I knew Elisabeth Moss from drove me crazy when she was on The West Wing, until I happened upon my grandmother watching the Bette Midler version of Gypsy. ding! She was young Louise.

  • stella

    Wait. Wait. Elizabeth Moss was in Escape to Witch Mountain AKA my favorite childhood movie other than The Princess Bride and Matilda? I knew she was the amesomest!

  • Donna SHerman

    Excellent childhood movie choices! I...can't think of any to add. Err, Sound of Music? Prince of Egypt?

  • stella

    Omg....i forgot about the Sound of Music! And The Prince of Egypt was so good too. Maybe throw in some Mary Poppins and The Parent Trap?

  • Erin S

    I know, I was stunned!

  • DataAngel

    Christina Hendricks will always be YoSafBridge to me.

  • Pat Sponaugle

    But now I need to pull out my Angel DVDs. This looks like one of the Liam flashbacks.

  • JoannaRobinson

    Yes, that's Darla just out of frame.

  • Pat Sponaugle

    Excellent. Thanks JRob.

  • Buellie413

    Yup, that's season two I believe-the husband and I have been re-watching the series the past few weeks. Seeing as Hendricks is his favorite girl in the 'verse, he was pleased at her appearance.

  • Artemis

    Holy hell, John Slattery.

    I mean, he's still Silver Foxing it up these days, but... wow. Wow.

  • Brent Reichenberger

    Roger Sterling is a silver fox. Young John Slattery was a regular fox.

  • Pat Sponaugle

    He looks like a member of A-Ha. (Google it people. Take On Me, Take Me On.) Not saying that in a bad way. Ah, I once had glorious hair too. (Okay, it was a glorious mullet. It was glorious I tell you! Please don't provide evidence to the contrary.)

  • Bedewcrock

    He also looks very similar to James Deen (The Canyons with Lindsay Lohan and other.....films).

  • melissa82

    That black and white photo!? Swoon!

  • Aratweth

    Good lord, Kevin Rahm looks positively Spader-esque there...I'll take two wrapped up to go, please and thank you.

  • himonoonna

    I remember watching that episode of DS9 and totally having the hots for Norvo. I never made the connection after seeing Rahm on Mad Men, though it's so obvious that I feel like a dolt now.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Ugh. Sweater vests. I hate you, early 2000's fashion.

  • Samantha Klein

    1. That is the first time I have ever found Jon Hamm attractive. Huh.
    2. Please explain the Elizabeth Moss in Escape to Witch Mountain thing to me, because I loved that movie as a kid and I don't really remember any other kids having speaking lines besides the leads, and she was NOT Tia, and therefore I am confused.

  • JoannaRobinson

    They did a remake in the 90s.

  • Melissa

    You can tell by the pretty next to her... Erik Von Detten was so my junior high crush

  • Samantha Klein

    Ohhh, gotcha. :)

  • Megan

    Wow, Slattery looks like James Deen in those pics.

  • kirbyjay

    Please emphasize that it was the Dirty Dozen ( the Next Generation) or something lame like that. It was not the Lee Marvin Dirty Dozen because that was a classic.

  • Malware

    It was the tv series Dirty Dozen

  • Bedewcrock

    Yessss. (I should have scrolled down.)

  • Deidra

    Oh man, I want to see your version. All I see is Kirk Cameron!

  • Bert_McGurt

    Little bit o' The Boss creeping in there too.

  • Wicked

    Wow! Harry Hamlin was the lead on clash of the titans?! I never noticed it before!

  • BWeaves

    I still remember seeing that movie when it came out. The old guy (Burgess Meredith) goes through a list of impossible quests that Perseus (Harry Hamlin) has to do, and Perseus' response is, "But we have a flying horse!" I peed myself laughing. It was not supposed to be funny. He was hot though.

  • Pat Sponaugle

    The original from the early 80s...

  • Wicked

    Yup! I have that movie on VHS! :)

  • Pat Sponaugle

    He had great 80s Perseus hair. Medusa had great 80s hair too.
