w00t, steph. I think we're coming from the same place about vincent d'onofrio in lao:ci. it's not that he's extraordinarily physically hot at this point. He's a little too old and borderline-too-heavy for my tastes in eye candy. i think it's that I'm just turned on by geniuses, and his character is a genius-type. The lightning-fast mental footwork coupled with a touch (but not a shovelful) of arrogance and self-absorption really does it for me. I used to watch all the law and order variants, but now CI is the only one I tivo, and his character is why.

And yes, about the whole "bad acting" thing. I do wonder if people misinterpret his character's extreme awkwardness for d'onofrio's inability to act. I think there was one episode where they implied that his character had Asberger's.

If you also think the whole brilliant-but-crazy-genius-type character is hot, you should check out Charlie Epps in Numbers, Spencer Reed in Criminal Minds, and House.

Now that I think about it though.... I wonder if my true opnion isn't some sort of weird hybrid between yours and mav's. As in, I watch the show because he's hot. But not because he's hot like "OMG I want your bod" hot. Because his personality and weirdness is hot. And that makes me want him. A little.

Whew, that's fucked up. I'm going back to bed now.

Interesting that you mentioned Aspberger's. It did occur to me that that's what he might be portraying, but I discounted it because his character's so good at understanding people. But on the other hand, it's also possible that his brilliance allows him to explicitly understand people (and even better than a normal person).

Thanks for the pointers. I've seen a couple episodes of Numbers and Criminal Minds (just started tivo'ing that one). I've seen one episode of House, which to me, seemed even more over-the-top than D'Onofrio's character (esp. wrt arrogance). I doubt any can compare to Goren :).
