Ok, so I’m starting up these no-brainer posts I used to do before. I think I’ve outdone serious and lonely for the past months already, so give me a break ok? Let me start this off with my most favorite faces in celebrity-dom (in no particular order).
Seriously, have you forgotten about Boone? Seems to me that he’s being overlooked a lot. It’s a real shame.
Fine– condemn me as a fangirl again. Yes I know Ian Somerhalder has those smoldering good looks that gave him the right to be a Guess model before he even came to television. He’s one hell of an actor too. Just let him stand still in a scene, and his piercing stare is enough to convey the required emotions. But he has yet to earn stardom as he hasn’t landed a “break” that would define his career in Tinseltown.
LOST is reputably the most puzzling TV series running to date. I seriously cannot understand why I keep watching it when I could, when I kept saying that I won’t anymore each time an episode ends (… sige na nga, syempre gusto ko din mapanuod si Matthew Fox). Can’t deny that it is one of the few shows that make you think, conjecture, swear expletives and shake your fists in the air in frustration. Boone Carlyle (Ian Somerhalder), no doubt, is unforgettable to me. (SPOILERS AHEAD!) I used to whine so much when he was killed off from the show. But then, the seemingly incestuous pairing with stepsister Shannon Rutherford (Maggie Grace) came too awkward, and often distasteful in the story, that I was soon glad they did away with the characters. (END OF SPOILER)
His performance in Smallville as Adam Knight was a bit shameful (perhaps, too strong a word), because then again, he may have been regarded as too much of the heartthrobby type cast alongside cheerleadery Kristen Kreuk’s “Lana Lang”. It would be an even more terrible shame if they, those Smallville decision-makers I mean, don’t spin-off that last episode he was in sometime! Though I doubt that they ever will. (SPOILER ALERT TO THE UNINFORMED) He was supposed to be a dead guy brought back to life, right? So did they kill him off just like that, after not getting that “serum-type” that was keeping him alive? Isn’t that just so lame? (END OF SPOILER)
Ian also guested in CSI and CSI:Miami, both of which happened 1-2 years before his Smallville appearance. I have yet to watch a movie with him in it. He has completed one last year alongside David Strathairn (Theseus in A Midsummer Night’s Dream) directed by a still unknown, Aaron J. Wiederspahn.
Online digging has informed me that Ian is my age, sharing the same birthday as our fellow blog-hopper trinity. Cool eh? Oh and while we’re at it, he is also dating his stepsister. You know who I mean, the actress Maggie Grace, his co-star in LOST.
