HOT GUY OF THE DAY: Dan Finnerty

You may think you've never seen this guy beefore, but in fact you have- most notably in Old School, where he sang a memorable version of "Total Eclipse of the Heart." You may also remember him singing in Starsky and Hutch, and most recently in The Hangover.

MOVIE: The Hangover

This was one of the few movies I was excited to see this summer, given the riotous trailer, the Mike Tyson cameo, and the super likable cast that includes Bradley Cooper (hottie from Alias), Ed Helms, piano playing stand up comedian Zach Galifianakis, and Hot Guy Of The Day honoree Justin Bartha.

MOVIE: The Ten

Holy crap I love the Netflix streaming video thingy- on which I caught The Ten. It's from the Stella guys who did Wet Hot American Summer, and it's ten short films based on each of the Ten Commandments. Paul Rudd introduces each segment and is also featured in a hillariously obtuse Woody Allen tribute for the "Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery" segment.

HOT GUY OF THE DAY: Coach Eric Taylor (Kyle Chandler)

The only thing I remember Kyle Chandler from pre-Fridayday Night Lights is this show that used to randomly be on at 4 am on Sundays- I never found out if this show actually had a prime time schedule. It was called Early Edition, and here's the premise of the show as described on IMDB:

"His name is Gary Hobson. He gets tomorrow's newspaper today. He doesn't know how. He doesn't know why. All he knows is when the early edition hits his doorstep, he has twenty-four hours to set things right."

MOVIE: Away We Go

I haven't seen this movie, but I just get the bad feeling that Away We Go is going to be this year's Juno. You know, the little indie movie that could, that's all cutesy and heartwarming, and everyone loves it and everyone loves the soundtrack........... Except for me, as I sit alone in a dark room, hating life, and hating the world, and falling ever so deeper into a desperate pit of isolation.......

HOT GUY OF THE DAY: Zachary Levi

When Chuck first came out, a friend of mine had a theory that NBC executives were trying to duplicate the success of resident heartthrob Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) by casting a look alike, give him the same haircut and nebbish good boy manners. That may be so, but Chuck is no second rate Jim Halpert, and Zachary Levi is a much better actor and way hotter.

TV: Renewals & Cancellations

So the end of TV season cancellation/renewal news cycle is over, and I would summarize my feelings on it as thus:
