Favorite Birthday Boy #2 for June 26th Chris O'Donnell

Chris O'Donnell is one of those interesting guys who I once was crazy about but now find really bland. When I was a teenager, his boy next door look was very attractive, and he made some very interesting choices with roles then. I loved Chris in Men Don't Leave, School Ties, Fried Green Tomatoes, Circle of Friends and even Mad Love. Then it seems he hit a wall creatively, maybe it was his choice, maybe it was that he was now a bit older, but his roles and movies seemed to get less interesting, even boring. He did have some interesting roles on tv with the Practice and Grey's Anatomy. (It is no secret I am not a Patrick Dempsey fan, so Meredith should have gone for the hot vet). Hopefully Chris will make some interesting choices again in roles so he does not fade away with fans memories being his latter roles. Chris turns 38 today.

Did anyone else think that Chris's bubbles were too well place in this School Ties scene? Matt Damon and Brendan Fraser were completely shown, but O'Donnell looked like he had bubbles somehow attached to him... Loved this movie though.

Like you, I have always loved this guy... a very good actor and really beautiful. The problem is that he's aged but his looks are still too pretty, so he comes off as anemic looking/acting. He needs to break out and do a couple of bad boys and stretch his acting talents.
