WHO'S HOTTER: (the quarterfinals)
Jake Gyllenhaal or Eric Bana?

JACOB BENJAMIN GYLLENHAAL

Nationality: American

Hotness peak:
that would be 2005

Hotter than:
Warren Beatty
Taye Diggs
Paul Newman

How'd he get this far?
Well, first of all, he's Jake. Second of all, look at him. And also, there was this movie about gay cowboys...

Yes, but how'd he beat Paul Newman?
It's called "being Jake." That's really the only answer I can give. Unless you want a detailed essay response involving soulful eyes, santa hats, secluded tents and Heath Ledger.

ERIC BANADINOVICH

Nationality: Aussie

Hotness peak: Hmmm... has there really been a peak? It's kind of been one big plateau...

Hotter than:
Viggo Mortensen
Hugh Jackman
Russell Crowe

How'd he get this far?
Damned if I know. Is this finally the end of the line? We'll see. But clearly Bana's doing something right, having bested Viggo, Hugh and Russell. I guess it's the muscles? Seriously, someone, enlighten me. Like, details. Cause I still don't see it. Yeah he's hot, sure, but THIS hot? REALLY? Whatever. I guess he does have a cute little smile.

I hate you.

My #1 vs. my #2?!?!??!?

Even though that sounds like it would be easy for me... but no. Not at all actually. and to be perfectly honest, somewhere along the line the numbering may have switched. I can't keep track of that.

Aww, damn it, Adam.

Uh... [flips coin... seriously, I just did]

Eric it is. :phew:

Hey, you're the one who keeps voting for both of them. I have no control over this. I just make flash cards and flip them.

Speaking of flipping things, what's with all this coin-flipping and eeny-meeny-miney-mo'ing people keep doing? I mean really. If James Dean loses cause somebody flips a coin, I will die.

heh, and if Ewan loses there's nobody else I'd pick over Bana. Don't know how to explain it to you but I love him.

Wow. If Eric wins this one, I will be speechless.

I am especially surprised at Glenn, who I thought loved Jake and had a vendetta with Eric after the Jackman thing. Although now I suppose he might resent Jake for beating Paul Newman.

Gawd, I hate that Jake beat Paul Newman, but I'd have to vote for him anyway.

Don't usually do this but - Bana. Hands down. And if you don't get the dark eyes, amazing body, killer smile, and sense of humour - we can just blame it on the fact I've got a weakness for men with amazing long legs.

EB of course!

We're at the shallow end of the pool here I guess, but EB is also a much better actor than JG (JG's OK, just not much of a range there).

As for looks - EB all the way.

Chrissie (a different anonymous person to the one above).

Chrissie again - you wanted details. Here are some details:

- Both seem like nice people with good senses of humour, so they cancel one another out there (some would say that EB is much funnier, used to be a comedian, but I won't go there).

- JG is a good actor with a limited range (based on BBM, Proof, The Good Girl, Moonlight (can't remember whole title)).
- EB is a good (maybe great one day) actor with a broad range (check out Chopper, Munich, Romulus, Troy for the muscles).

Looks wise:

- EB is taller
- EB has beautiful eyes (yes, JG, has too, but I prefer EB's).
- they've both got muscle, but EB somehow has that elegant/graceful way with him despite his general bigness.
- EB has great hair - shame he prefers it short these days
- EB looks especially gorgeous with a beard
- Getting really shallow here - EB has a better ar$e.

Back to acting: EB has a trademark sexy soulfulness thing going on (at times), while JG has the slightly quirky, cute, vulnerable thing going on (at times). I prefer the former.

Enough of the "verbal diarrhoea".

I can't believe I'm doing this, but Bana over Jake. I love Jake, but if I continue my smoldering votes, it has to be Bana.

You can't compare the two. I don't understand why people make a big deal about Jake. Jake is not handsome and not sexy at all...ok, maybe cute for preteens...
