This has always been one of my all time favorite pictures. Not sure why, but given the snow is falling outside so quietly today I thought this was a good pic to post. I know people complain about snow, having to shovel it, the driving concerns ect. I certainly complained the other night when a party I was going to attend got cancelled due to the weather. With all the crap snow can bring, I could still never live anywhere where, when for at least part of the year, I could not enjoy the magic of snow.
As long as it is December 19th, Jake Gyllenhaal will be the favorite birthday boy. Jake is one of my favorite actors, but my favorite Jake projects are not just his big hits. I first fell for Jake for his role in 'Donnie Darko' which remains one of my favorite flicks ever. I also loved 'The Good Girl'. His big movies such as 'Brokeback Mountain' and 'The Day After Tomorrow' would be near the bottom of my favorite Jake movies. Mr. Gyllenhaal turns 28 today.
I love German actor, director and producer Til Schweiger who turns 45 today. Til started out studying to become a teacher, but thankfully for us after 2 years began acting lessons.
Beautiful and talented actor Jonathon Trent has only been acting for about four years, but made a big spash as Joey in the 2006 flick 'Boy Culture'. Jonathon has been working steadily since, and had roles in television on The OC, Dirt, Cold Case, Cane and CSI: New York. Jonathon will be seen next year in the new Transformers movie, which hopefully will boost him to mainstream success. There is a wonderful interview with Jonathon at boy culture which I encourage you to read. Besides being a great talent and beauty, he seems like a hell of a smart and sweet guy.
