    I think this part of the movie is set in the 90s when their daughter was a little girl. Gerry looks just like bikers around some bars in my area. I don’t like the look personally, but he’s got it nailed for the movie.

    @Gracey: I was just thinking about the same thing.

    There are a variety of biker types in the world. Preppy bikers, weekend middle-aged bikers, rich bikers, poor bikers and the type of biker that Sam was at this time of his life. It’s a culture of it’s own, and of course the look isn’t what many people find attractive. But that was Sam’s culture and that’s what’s G is portraying. I think some people seem to think he should pretty up the role. This is about a real person. No need to whitewash it. I can’t wait to see what the look in Africa will be.

    Is that Lynn Childers talking to him (the woman holding his face, and he has his hand on her waist? She looks like she’s giving him guidance or something.

    Nuts Says:

    And…I’m liking this look.

    My, my, my.

    I was never the one who liked the bad boys but since finally noticing Gerry I’m suprised how much I’m attracted to them. (With age comes wisdom?)

    Anyhow, loving the biker look.

    Nice pics, but they need to thin out his hair on top a little, so its not …so high. When I look at the pics my eyes to right to the hair.

    XOXOXO Says:

    …go right to his hair. Sorry. Need edit button.

    Old Mia Says:

    @Nuts: I wondered who that is as well. The woman has the same kind of hair as Lynn. Could be.

    *eyeroll* Says:


    I’m thinking that’s Kathy Baker who plays Sam’s mother. It’s def. not Michelle Monaghan.

    ALS Says:

    He’s amazing. Even his body type changes with different rolls. His arms look like a real biker’s arms, not like King Leonidis or even Mike Chadway or Milo.

  17. 42
    Manny Says:

    I have to agree. His arms have the biker flab going right now. I miss his beautiful defined guns. *sigh*

    *eyeroll* Says:


    but I could be wrong. I’ve been wrong before. lol

    Damn! Really need an edit button!

    What i want to know, is why does the stunt double have better hair than the star? hehe
