    No actors who are primarily TV stars or music stars Vickie? Ack-I find a lot of guy movie stars to be dogs personally. This focus would really limit things A LOT. Not sure I would want to do this then-Not sure I could come up with enough guys just from movies since that limits my choices. Why not just keep it to famous guys like the dream girls thread keeps it to famous gals.

    Rain, Jen, I'm not going to let rules cause me to lose people. Really, pick who you want. Don't worry about it. [​IMG]

    So, if we're picking on a non-romantic basis, it would be based on who seems like a better guy? Not really based on talent or things like that?

    Either way, I'll give it a shot.

    I think things are pretty open-ended-You can pick who you want based on whatever factors work for you-Looks, Talent, Coolness, etc.-Just like in the Dream Girls draft [​IMG]

    Guy attractiveness is definitely a factor for me.

    I've gone back and forth about joining this. My main problem is twofold:

    1. I'd be picking 'cool' guys. But when I started thinking about it, I realized there really aren't that many that I think are cool. I don't know how many rounds you're going, but, even if no one stole my picks, I'd run out too quickly.

    2. I realize that I don't think these guys are cool on their own, it's the roles they've played. Which means I'd really be selecting characters from films, not the actors. And some who are cool in some films, are definitely not in others. I'd be doing more of what's going on the in character draft.

    Anyway, good luck, and I'll be reading with interest and making fun of the ugly guys that Rain will no doubt be picking. [​IMG]

    Well, I'm going to pick those men whose work shows a wide range of talent, artistry, and emotional depth.

    Ah heck. . .I'm going for the drool factor. [​IMG]

    There are some actors who seem pretty cool, so I'll play.

    I am torn, as well, between drool factor and talent factor...but drool is winning.[​IMG]

    Yah, Steve, I was kind of thinking that.

    I don't mind if I get scooped if someone before me really wants to take a certain person. I just don't like scooping for the sake of it in these games.

    But I'm glad to hear you don't want him. [​IMG]

    I thought it would be hard to get 12, but we're already up to 15! Should I go with 16 or go with my original intent to let the participants period run for 24 hours with hopes of getting even more? What to do what to do?
