    Ok, 16 it is. I can always do another one if people are interested.

    We need one more, but we'll start anyway.

    This will be starting a lot quicker than I imagined, so some people might not be around and ready.


    My first pick is a good actor, smart, as nice a guy you could ever want to meet, seems like a lot of fun to be around and pretty good looking too, I think.


    George Clooney

    OK, a multi-talented artist (actor, published poet and painter) who is great looking -- very nice bone structure. Caught my eye when I first saw him theatrically in "Boiling Point". Seems rather elusive to the media, which gives him a nice, mysterious air.

    Viggo Mortensen

    Elizabeth, [​IMG] I've had him in my Tivo Wishlist and have been working through some of his older films. Even when they're bad, he commands the screen.

    I'm not participating in this draft because I basically have the same problems that George mentioned. I wouldn't be able to last 10 rounds. I will definitely follow it, though. If only to make fun of some of the picks! [​IMG]

    My first pick is easily one of the sexiest and most appealing movie stars of all time, Harrison Ford. He still looks great even after all these years:

    My first pick is Ryan Phillippe.




    Heh, just kidding, Rain! [​IMG]

    I'll go with:

    Antonio Banderas


    He's hunky, suave, has a cool accent, AND a sense of humor. [​IMG]

    Hmmm, who should I pick? Let's see...

    Well, since Steve doesn't want him, I guess I'll go with...

    I'll give this tourney a try. Should be fun. Although I may be picking more on the characters the actors play vs. my very limited perception of what these individuals are like in real life.

    - Walter.

    From what I know about him personally, hanging out with Mel Gibson would be a blast. [​IMG]

    Put in one for Brad Pitt from me!..

    Wish I had a scanner. [​IMG] I've got a bit of a classic photo on my hands of him before he was famous.

    Never mind, here's to IMDB and Fight Club - [​IMG]

    I would like to remind the lazy boys that you are supposed to post a photo or at least a link to one. :p)

    I don't see anything in Vickie's rules regarding this.

    Besides I'm picking on the basis of personality - looks aren't a factor to me :p)

    A Word From Your Sponsor:

    It's my understanding that this thread's originator wants to expand this contest beyond guys in the movies. So, if somebody thinks Rain would be a great drinking buddy he or she is free to nominate him. (Note also the change in the thread title.)
