The screening of the romantic dramedy The Good Guy at the TriBeCa Film Festival naturally had Blindie all giddy with Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel and Friday Night Lights‘ Scott Porter in lead roles.

But we left the theater impressed by Aaron Yoo and Jessalyn Wanlim, who, as best friends of both lead characters, made us crack up.

Wanlim, who played Bledel’s bestie and coworker Jordan, deadpanned during a hilarious waxing scene on why their other girlfriend didn’t tag along for a team waxing: “Because she didn’t want to get her vagina ripped off!”

While Yoo, who’s a familiar face from Disturbia with Shia LaBeouf and Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, goes against type with slick-back douchey Wall Street boy hair and tailored suits.

As Steve-O, the up for anything financial party boy, he takes back tequila shots, unsuccessfully hits on blondes (“Since it looks like I’m not f–king her…Good luck!”) and calling his darts team “Blasian” because he’s teamed with a black Brit.

We’re looking forward to seeing more from these two actors in the future.

In the British bromantic comedy My Last Five Girlfriends, which premiered Thursday night in New York, Londoner Naomie Harris was the girlfriend that stole the TriBeCa Film Festival’s hearts (or at least Blindie’s!)

The Cambridge-trained thespian, whose most recognizable roles are the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, 28 Days Later and the cheesetastic Miami Vice film, is one of those actresses who isn’t only beautiful, but undeniably witty and charming.

As Gemma, the emotionally-stunted fifth girlfriend who takes lovesick protagonist Duncan’s (played by the equally adorable Brendan Patricks) heart in the film adaptation of Alain De Botton’s bestseller On Love, Harris is worth the wait and screen time after a string of rather bland girlfriends.

Blindie’s going to be on the lookout for this fresh talent!
