    It’s gay to wear a Motörhead t-shirt?

  • Jen

    He looks so cute with his bag. And what’s so gay about him and that bag, it’s not like its a man purse or something. It looks all raggedy. You think a gay guy would walk around with a hole in his shirt? pleaseee

  • stellartes

    Adorable! he’s so cute

  • No thanks

    This guy seems like he would be tall but he is shorter than zac efron.

  • Zo

    @No thanks: I think Sam is taller than Zach Efron and why do people always have to find something “gay” about someone.

  • pretty young girl

    MMMMMMM !! YUMMY!!!!

  • No

    He would never sign on to a project without a writer or director on board. Never believe those Indian paper/blog claims. THEY MAKE THINGS UP.

    I liked him in Avatar and he was the best part of T4.
    .
    But they promotion for Clash of the Titans is horrible. It doesn’t convey what the movie is about. All you see is Sam yelling and CGI monsters. Terrible, TERRIBLE, ad campaign!

  • Lego

    He’s so sexy with his Motörhead t-shirt !
    Mostly french boys are dressed like that so what ? they are not gay !

  • http://www.starfallgames.net starfall

    I have to admit, that’s a girlie bag :) And he looks tiny in real life! The dude rocks onscreen though.

    How lazy are the casting directors these days? Dan Dare is supposed to be from Manchester and his side-kick Digby is from Lancashire. For this film to succeed, a top-notch director is needed, preferably someone British with a feel for Frank Hampson’s wonderful creation. Maybe Ridley Scott or Danny Boyle. I’ve always thought that Peter O’Toole’s features in Laurence Of Arabia would have been perfect for Dan Dare. The actor Hugh Lloyd would have been great for Digby too. This will be a missed opportunity without the proper look and feel of the late 50s artwork and design aesthetic. The Dan Dare Corporation’s animated series got some things right, but the main characters were ruined. Will Frank Hampson’s family get any of the royalties? This would be the biggest shame if they were ignored.
