Friday Night Lights Movies Taylor Kitsch

Taylor Kitsch Dubbed ‘Wolverine’s Secret Weapon’ by Entertainment Weekly!


One of Blindie’s Ga Ga Guys Taylor Kitsch is making the promotion rounds for his No. 1 blockbuster X-Men Origins: Wolverine–and his latest pitch is to Entertainment Weekly.

While Kitsch’s day job is playing the broodingly sexy Tim Riggins on NBC’s fantastic drama Friday Night Lights, he said, “Not seeing Riggins in Gambit was incredibly important to me.”

The TV hunk may be getting major buzz for his big screen jump, but he says he’ll “never say no to” FNL because of all it’s done for him.

Up next for the talented hunk? Playing suicidal Pulitzer Prize winner Kevin Carter in The Bang-Bang Club, which he’s shooting in South Africa and dropped 30 lbs. for.

Ga Ga: Asian Actor Leonardo Nam Slims Down to Heartthrob Status

It took Blindie a few weeks to realize that the men in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 were by far more yummy than the four lead actresses. Case in point: Korean-Australian actor Leonardo Nam, who played Amber Tamblyn’s love, Brian McBrian.

The Argentina-born, Australia-bred actor, who actually appeared in the first installment of the franchise, usually plays stoner, gamer types, like his characters in the first Sisterhood film and The Perfect Score with Scarlett Johansson.

Nam’s physical transformation from slightly chubby gaming fanatic to leading heartthrob (complete with abs, pecs and an insanely chiseled face) caught Blindie by surprise. His character even took Tamblyn’s character’s virginity–talk about upgrading from smoking pot to sex pot!

Up next for Nam: 2009’s He’s Just Not That Into You with Ginnifer Goodwin and Drew Barrymore.

Black Kids Skip ‘School’: Where’s High School Musical‘s Corbin Bleu & Monique Coleman?

In the latest media blitz for Disney’s High School Musical 3: Senior Year, stars Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale appear in a Grease-inspired photo spread for Elle. But blatantly missing (once again!) are black stars Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman.

Granted Coleman isn’t necessarily a major player in the Disney Channel megahit, but Bleu is definitely a tween heartthrob.

Although race is the obvious difference between these stars, it still confuses Blindie as to why the media continues to crop out Bleu, who is a hunk in his own right.

Coleman, who plays smarty-pants Taylor McKessie in HSM, told Ebony that nabbing the role was important to her so she could “show that the smartest girl in the school is a Black girl!”

Of the coverage given to Tisdale, Efron and Hudgens, Coleman told USA Today last month, “It’s a popularity situation, and I can be really thrilled by the fact that it hasn’t happened to me yet.”
