Wow he is a hottie. I saw him in Crash and Cruel Intentions and he was quite good in both. Good pick for HDH...

Tara said...

I felt kind of bad when he and Reese Witherspoon broke up.

He was really good in "Crash".

The Diva Tee's Thoughts said...

I think he is such a hottie! Good choice. Itoo am sad that he a Reece split. I thought they made a really cute couple.

Rachel said...

Babybull40 ~ I saw him in both of those. He has the sexiest pout!

Tara ~ He was excellent in "Crash". That is one of the movies that I will watch over and over again.

Diva Tee ~ I thought they made a cute couple too. They were together forever by Hollywood standards.

Churlita said...

You know, he's not quite my kind of guy. He might be a little too pretty for me. Don't get me wrong, he's definitely easy on the eyes. He's just not my first hottie choice. I'm weird that way.

David in DC said...

He doesn't do a lot for me.

But that Reese Witherspoon, she's the bee's knees.

Rachel said...

Churlita ~ You will LOVE next weeks if you like the not so pretty boys.

David In DC ~ I tried.

Everyone ~ If there is ever someone you want to nominate for a Hump Day Hottie, email me and I will consider it.

Eric said...

He really botched a good thing thats for sure. Who doesn't love Reese Witherspoon?

"You will LOVE next weeks if you like the not so pretty boys."

Has it finally come to the Ernest Borgnine post?

Poppy said...

Rach, I think it's a good choice, but I do have to agree with churlita. Although he's hot, he's almost sickly sweet. Like too much chocolate or something...

Rachel said...

Eric ~ Reese Whitherspoon seems very sweet. But you know that what we see on the outside can be completely different than what the inside is like.

Dmarks ~ I promise that Ernest Borgnine will NEVER be HDH

Poppy ~ If he is chocolate I wouldn't mind him to be poured all over my body. That would be good times.

Poppy: Great to see you around the blogs.

Erica said...

I also think he was great in Crash and also will love to watch this movie again. I was also sad when he and Reese split up, they were so cute together. And seemed very happy.
