    I look forward to seeing Hoover in the fall.

    Leo has always been a great actor, but he’s just not getting any hotter with age. Which is fine, he’s always been a different kind of hot.

  • CanadaGirl

    This is an exciting addition. Josh Lucas has done some interesting work. I think he works well in comedies too.
    .
    I feel like I say this every thread. The man is hot. He’s talented and happens to be very good looking too. He’s really gotten trim and fit lately. He has a baby face people – get over it!

    Josh has eyes are so bright blue. Gorgeous. Glad he’s doing bigger picture as I haven’t seen him a lot lately (perhaps I need to expand my movie repertoire?)

    A French journalist regrets that Dicaprio cannot be named to the Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role for two movies the same year, because this “doubled” is henceforth excluded by the regulation of the Academy for reasons of legibility. One nomination would be great :)
