It’s not hard to understand why screenwriters love to make the male lead some kind of carpenter or woodworker: its a vaguely “manly” sounding job yet free-spirited and there’s ample opportunity to take their shirts off. I realized this the other night when I saw “Peace, Love & Misunderstanding” and fell head over heels in lust with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Catherine Keener’s super-sensitive love interest yet is also a manly-man carpenter. He’s a poor man’s Javier Bardem, but I won’t have to shank Penelope Cruz to get him in bed. Mmm-mmm. You can hammer my nail anytime, Jeffrey. Screw my bolts. Level my 2-x-4. Drill, baby, drill!
Enough with the double entendres. After the jump, eight more hot carpenters of film and television. I’m sure you’ll be impressed with how well they work with their wood. (Sorry.)
Yes, that’s Ashton Kutcher and Guy Fieri, doing that thing that they do (being d-bags), at the Maxim Kentucky Derby party.
Ashton Kutcher is in trouble. Again. The “Two and a Half Men” star recently filmed an ad for PopChips which spoofed online dating. In the ad, Kutcher dons “brown face” to play an Indian man, amongst other characters. The ad sparked immediate controversy when it was unleashed on the web yesterday, with many critics saying the portrayal was stereotypical and racist, and PopChips has since pulled the ad and apologized. I will never ever ever understand how blatantly offensive ads like this make it all the way through the creative process without someone saying, “Uh, guys? Maybe this is a bad idea?” As for Ashton? Sorry, but dude is as dumb in real life as his character on “That ’70s Show.” This is hardly the first time he’s said or done something totally stupid. Remember when he got all pissy on Twitter about Joe Paterno being fired? Ugh. [MTV]
“Extra’s” Ben Lyons caught up with actress Mila Kunis at CinemaCon 2012 in Las Vegas, where she cleared up pesky rumors she’s dating her onetime “That ‘70s Show” castmate, Ashton Kutcher, after they were seen together multiple times in the last few weeks.
“It’s absurd!” said Mila. “A friend is a friend.” Read more…
