Also Celebrating Today December 18th

Also blowing out candles today, 53 of them, is Michael, the creator and writer of Entertain Me. Michael's proud of all the hard work he's put the last year plus to get fitter and celebrated his success with a new photo shoot with California based photographer Jon Mar Photo.

 Happy Birthday Michael!

JayK: Deep Purple

When the deep purple falls
Over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to twinkle
In the night

Although purple isn't really known as a Christmas color, there is certainly something festive about these new selfies from model and dancer Jayktheknight.  Just like the hypnotizing effect of staring at the Christmas tree lights, I could stare into Jayk's deep purple haze for hours.

Blast From the Past: Keir Dullea

Until watching Black Christmas, actor Keir Dullea wasn't really on my radar.  Although he's been apart of several well known movies, including 2001: A Space Odyssey, it was Dullea's role in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof that first introduced me to the Ohio born actor.  When I was researching actors who'd taken on the role of Brick (A Ton of Bricks) I came upon images of Dullea in the 1974 Broadway production.

September 24th 1974 - February 8th 1975
Featuring: Elizabeth Ashley, Fred Gwynne and Kate Reid

Dullea's theatre and film career began in the early sixties, and he has continued to work steadily since.  In the last few years, Dullea has appeared on television on Law & Order, Damages, Castle, and in the recent HBO production of Fahrenheit 451.  Although shirtless in many film and stage roles, I believe his own nude scene was the shower scene in 1973's Paperback Hero.

'Well, now that Jack Frost is back nipping at our noses once again, we thought you could use something to raise your temperature a degree or two---or 10. Just to review, Our man Tom stands 6'2" inches in his X-mas stockinged feet, has clocked 23 visits from Santa, and at a magically muscled 240 pounds, is our idea of one hot toddy! Mmmm--spicy! Has anybody seen that mistletoe?'
