The Final Four: ERIC BANA
Eric Bana. Here's someone I'd never thought much of before... someone who I would once have described as "boring" next to the likes of Hugh Jackman (dripping with charisma) or Viggo Mortensen (raw animal magnetism), not to mention Jake G. But here he is, having bested ALL of them, suddenly looking like the frontrunner in this way-too-long-gestating affair. And you know what? I'm starting to see why.
Bana's not loud and flashy, he's not known for nudity or gay characters, he doesn't do the "smouldering evil" thing, he doesn't sing, etc. But he has his charms. For one, he's very tall, like moi. He's also seriously built, has thick, beautiful dark hair that works well both short and long, can pull off facial hair, and has a very pretty face on which to grow it. And where others have awkward cuteness, aggressive sexuality, or intense mystery, Bana has quiet charm, a lot of class, and a lovely serenity and vulnerability that bely his stature. He's a gentle giant. In short: I'm starting to see what all the fuss is about. This guy's got the goods.
Can he go all the way? That's up to you.
