I know it would be a stretch to call Eric Nies an icon, but it was nice to see him back in the limelight this year with 'Confessions of a Teen Idol'. Eric was one of those guys I would never have heard of if not for the net. I never watched The Real World. When I first got the internet, Eric was another of those guys who was all over, from caps from The Real World to his work in Bruce Webers 'Bear Pond'. I clicked and saved many a picture of Eric Nies and here are some of my favorites. Eric turns 38 today.
Yes I know, maybe actor Andrew Keegan should not be under 'Blast From The Past'. I know he is still a working actor. I put Andrew under Blast from the Past as Andrew was one of those actors I watched closely 10 years ago as an up and coming star. It was during this time Andrew weaved his way between television and movies with a string of successful movies such as 'Teenage Caveman', 'O', '10 Things I Hate About You' and others. Then Andrew almost seemed to disappear. He didn't though, he has been working steadily since his first professional roles in the early 90's. Andrew deserves to get back in the limelight. He has a great distinct look and is a talented actor. Andrew has some upcoming projects in the works and here's hoping Andrew once again gets roles equal to his talents.
