Vincent D'Onofrio
In his finest role
So earlier tonight, the sexy and sophisticated (I got tired of saying lovely and talented) beststephi and I were watching one of her favorite shows, Law & Order: Criminal Intent or as I like to call it Criminally Bad Acting. I'm actually a fan of the other two Law & Order serieses, especially SVU, but I never much cared for CI because, well, frankly it's pretty bad.

Steph of course maintains that the show is good and is particularly impressed with Vincent D'Onofrio, who's "acting" (note the scare quotes) is pretty much the worst part of the show. I was talking with my officemate about the show the other day and he informed me that his wife felt similarly even though he could tell that D'Onofrio was pretty much really crappy. He went on to point out that he knew several women who liked the show, all of whom had S.O.s who hated it. How could this be?

I've thought about this long and hard over the last couple of weeks.

Carmen Electra

Carmen Electra
now that's what I call "acting"
It suddenly occurs to me what it is. D'Onofrio is cute. I mean, I don't think he's much to look at personally, but that must be what it is. The man played Thor for HOVA's sake. Let's call a spade a spade, I, like many men across the world, am a fan of Carmen Electra, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Love Hewitt. On behalf of the male gender, I have to point out that we have a couple of reasons for liking each of them, and acting and singing ability aren't them. Women are just either too proud to admit that they are slaves to their base carnal desires like men or too stupid to realize it. Vincent D'Onofrio is not a good actor, ladies. You're just horny. Just like men. Only worse, because at least we're honest about it.

So the question, for both men and women, are there actors (or singers or whatever) that you acknowledge are bad but you'll watch things with them anyway because deep down in places you don't like to talk about (or maybe places you do) you want to fuck them? Be honest with me and yourself. Or if you insist on maintaining the pretense, then I'd love to know what celebrities you think are hot but you also insist they are talented (even though others might argue that s/he isn't). Who are they? Why do you like them (both talentwise and appearancewise)?

In other news, Steph and I are considering bringing back the Halloween Jam this year. If we do it, it would be on October 28th. There will of course be other parties going on, I'm sure. So if we have a Halloween party, who'd be interested in coming?
