TT # 8


Afer compiling this list, there is a definite pattern. I love men with deep, strong voices, dark hair, dark eyes, and men who can sing. Not too bad of a list, I don't think.

Thirteen Men I Find To Be Very Yummy

1.

Mike Rowe, the host of Dirty Jobs. I have just really started watching this show, and now I tune in every week just to watch Mike. AND ... he is an OPERA singer. Oh man... there was one episode in a candy store where he started singing ... and he is a bass (ETA: one of my visitors has pointed out that he believes Mike to be a baritone, so I stand corrected)... oooooo... weak in the knees, I tell ya!


2.

Ewan McGregor. Mmmmm.... I love to be surprised by an actor. I love to find out that he is a triple threat. And that is exactly what Ewan proved to me in Moulin Rouge. He can sing. He can dance. And he can act. And he sings. Did I mention that he sings. He's just not your young Ben Kenobi anymore!

3.

Kevin Spacey. Oh yeah. Here is another triple threat. I didn't particularly care much for the movie where he played Bobby Darin in "Beyond the Sea." But I watched it to watch him sing and dance and act. Do you see a pattern here?

4.

Harrison Ford. Notice that I used a younger picture of him. I am not particularly enamored of the older Harrison Ford, the one who dates Calista Flockhart. I LOVE the Harrison Ford of the 1980s. The Henry of Regarding Henry. The John Book of Witness. The Deckard of Blade Runner. The Jack Trainer of Working Girl.

5.

Julian McMahon of Nip/Tuck. Mmmmmm...... and only a few short days until the season premier.

6.

Dylan Walsh. Another Nip/Tuck entry ... there is just SOMEthing about him.

7.

Pierce Brosnan. I have loved this man since he started playing the part of Remington Steele. His accent. Oh ... his accent.

8.

Alan Rickman. Another European actor ... this man's accent is just so.... soothing. I loved him in Dogma. There was that scene at the end when he told Bethany that she was pregnant, and he put his hand on her belly .... oh, that was DIVINE!

9.

James Earl Jones. Dude. Darth Vader, man. Golly ... his voice is SOOOOOOO sexy, and that just makes him a sexy man!

10.

Sean Connery. Ok ... so that makes it one Scot and two Irishmen. Or is Ewan Scottish, too? Well, it IS my heritage. Sean Connery is just so wonderfully yummy ... oh man.

11.

Hugo Weaving. Strange one, maybe. But I fell in love with his voice in V for Vendetta. We never once saw his face (I know what he looks like), but his voice... who couldn't love it? Of course, he is more well-known as Mr. Smith in The Matrix movies, and he isn't so nice in those. But that voice in that movie...

12.

Keanu Reeves. I am not a HUGE fan of his, but when he wears these glasses and that duster coat, or the black turtleneck in The Matrix movies, I go weak in the knees. But he is AWFUL darn cute in this photo:

because I think he looks an awful lot like the German exchange student who lived with my family for a year ... after his haircut, though.

13.

Tom Hanks. Saved the best for last. I just love him. I have always loved him. He could play a cow, and I would go see the movie. He is the epitome of a man to me.

I love "Dirty Jobs"... only because of Mike Rowe! He's hot!!! And I had no idea he could sing! I must have missed the singing episode... OH, he's just too hot.

I like "tall, dark and handsome" the best too, but you picked other men than would have first come to my mind. I think I like very rugged men; Colin Farrell in Miami Vice comes to mind. However, I don't mind pondering the issue a little further. Great idea for a Thursday; or, any day for that matter.

My fiancee drools over Mike Rowe...

She says it's ok though since he and I have the same last name...although he spells his wrong. Are you sure he's a bass? I thought he was a baritone...

Oh, I have to agree with you on so many of your choices. I'm a tall, dark and handsome lover myself. Even better, is when tall, dark and handsome is accompanied by blue eyes. *Purrrr*

Mike Rowe. He IS yummy.

Julian McMahon. I happen to think P looks a bit like him. Yeowza!

Pierce & Sean. The only Bonds worth watching. Love their other work, too. And Sean, I mean how sexy can "old" be?

James Earl Jones. He's from Michigan. This is CNN. LOL!

Keanu. As if he needs any explanation. Dude! I'd like to be his righteous babe. LOL!
