The Fabulous Foster Boys

Last night I watched about a half hour of a pretty lame comedy on tv, and I'm watching it thinking to myself you know, that young guy starring oposite Kirsten Dunst really is quite charming, quite cute actually. Then of course the shamestorm descended because he was like 21, and I'm like 41, and technically I could be old enough to be his father, and that officially makes me a Chicken Hawk in the eyes of all thinking individuals, and it is waaaay heading into creepy territory, and... but I digress.

(Just a thought, maybe I'm developing a thing for guys who's eyes are set a bit close together?)

Anyhoo, said cutie is called Ben Foster, as I discovered after consulting the twin oracles of Google and IMDb. He was the suspiciously gay friend/boyfriend of Claire on Six Feet Under for a while, remember? (Thankfully he's cut his ratty collar length hair that he was sporting on Six Feet Under.) He's about 4 or 5 years older now than he was in the film and my, my hasn't he aged well. Oh, and he has an equally handsome brother.

The Foster boys, Ben (L) & Jon (R).

I should say younger brother. Bring on the shamestorm!

Now now now, there's no shame in loving someone younger...especially when they're certifiably hot like Messrs. Foster & Foster.

Besides, you probably look like you're in your late twenties anyway :P

P/S The word verification turned up DOGTRD. It's a sign!!!

Thanks pumpkin! I do not look like I'm in my twenties, but thirties I can certainly manage. (There is a link at the top of my sidebar to pic a me that was taken about 2 years ago.) Only a few grey hairs and not too many wrinkles so far! ::touches wood::

DOGTRD is definately a sign!

I would pick the one on the right; no matter what his age is (well, as long as it is legal!)... cutie!

Duane, I agree Jon is real cute. I'm not sure what it is about Ben, I think it's the eyes and the slightly wry smile... cutie.

You must see Ben in "Big Trouble" as the wise-ass son. He's good in NorthFork too, but not as much screentime.

And Alan Tudyk does good stoner.

He is in my almost all-time favourite film, "Wonder Boys"... dark and witty and oh so good. I'm recommending this. Robert Downey, Michael Douglas (still with his natural face), Rip Torn - "I am a Writer" and the lovely, haunted Tobey Maguire. Very quoteable. I know you'll love it, Andrew. Well, I hope so anyway.

Good guess Loulou, I heart The Wonder Boys (both the book and the film) but it has been a number of years since I've seen it and I didn't actually remember Ben from it. Must go back and watch it again. Tobey Maguire is another crush of mine, he makes me go all thing.
