WHO'S HOTTER: Marlon Brando or James Dean?

All right. Time to get serious. I assume the contestants need no introduction. Previous men in this series have not necessarily been famous for their cuteness/hotness, but this time's different. This is a clash of the titans.

I expect passionate endorsements of your choices. If you can't get enthusiastic about one of these men, then... well, then there's something wrong with you. Sexual orientation is not even relevant with these two. Their hotness knows no bounds; it transcends all.

Vote once. Vote well. Explain your reasoning (unless it's just one of those gut feelings/attractions that cannot be explained in words... but come on, try, there's plenty to worth with here). Debate. Argue. Get specific. We have here two white-hot icons of 50s brooding and angst. Which one does it for YOU? Brando or Dean?

And the hotter is...

(a week passes)

James Dean. Not as much participation as I'd hoped, plus the two people who DID vote seemed to base their choice on the fact that Dean died before he could become old and ugly (that's not really fair to Brando). Still, I can't really argue with the result. Brando's hotness tears through the screen, and he's got that animalistic male thing going on... but his voice is kind of terrible. When he speaks, I get turned off. Not a great trait for an actor. James Dean, on the other hand, is just... well...

James Dean is the sexiest man ever. Period.

Brando was hot for a while, but I think he should get points detracted for becoming grotesque.

I dunno, I think Dean should get points detracted for dying so early and denying the world more of his hotness and talent.

But I know what you mean. Older Brando = much less hot. But just focus on these two pictures, everyone. When both are in their prime. It's not Brando's fault Dean never lived past his prime (or perhaps never even lived into his prime... god, how depressing).

Damn you, Adam!!! My brain just exploded. Maybe... no, um... uh... Marlon is so... but then he turned into bleh... but James... James [swoons]

James. At least he never lived longer to turn into Brando later.

There are plenty of hunky young men who grew into better looking men as they got older. Marlon just got fat.

Oh come on, somebody else, please vote. And don't vote for James Dean just cause he died young. He would've ended up fat and bald, too.
