Hot Daddies, Hot Son

Okay okay, I already gave my goodbye speech for my long weekend, but I'm actually not out of my office until around 2 today, and I wasn't sure anything would come up that I'd want to post about... but something has. And lucky for all of us, I'm going to make it involve plenty of gratuitousness to get us through my absence.

BD has news on another face joining the cast of the remake of the 1987 horror flick The Stepfather, and I just thought we should take a gander at the male cast for this thing... Dylan Walsh of Nip/Tuck fame had already been cast at the titular villain (taking the reins from Lost's Locke, Terry O'Quinn, of course) and Gossip Girl's Penn Badgley as his rightly suspicious new step-son... now they've gone and added Chris Meloni as Who Cares, This Thing's Now Got A Smokin' Male Cast.

Dylan Walsh

Penn Badgley

Christopher Meloni

The film I'm working out in my head involves Walsh's stepfather being eeeeeevil because he's a closet-case, and his lust for his new step-son (whom he spies on showering, undressing, so forth, naturally) drives him insane. Meloni would be the rough-trade he picks up at some truck stop and takes out his villainy upon, post-coital of course. See? Who needs writers? These things write themselves!

Aaaanyway, Sela Ward and Sherry Stringfield round out the cast; it starts filming in March.

Shameless, you are.

Dylan Walsh, however, has lost all possible appeal for me after years and years of playing such a total dickface on Nip/Tuck.

Jason Adams said...

Thankfully I stopped watching Nip/Tuck after all that Carver nonsense, so I can still appreciate his handsomeness sans baggage.

I was just thinking this the other day! I mean, thank god they cast a 20 something as the step son instead of a kid again.

Meloni's probably just dead meat.

I can't wait to see this movie Ja-perhaps you could retool Stop-Loss as well?

I'm with Joe.

And what, no naked Meloni, Jason? I'm disappointed.

Jason Adams said...

Naked Meloni's too easy. He's used up, naked-wise!

Personally, I stopped watching Nip/Tuck about halfway through the pilot, so I don't know what you guys are talking about.

As much as I love the 1987 version of The Stepfather, I think I might not totally hate the idea of this remake, if they replace the stepdaughter with a hot stepson. Just imagine how much better the shower scene will be.
