Today's Fanboy Delusion

Today I'd rather be...

... hosing down Johnathon Schaech.

This post has been brought to you by this post I did yesterday at The Film Experience, where I wished Jessica Lange a happy 60th birthday, and by this post at PopWrap, bringing the world a new shot of Mr. Schaech in his almost-altogether:

These two things combined to remind me of this weirdly incestuous scene in the 1998 film Hush (Lange is playing his mother) seen above and viola, this post.

But as I was looking through an assortment of photographs of him in his various film roles - for research, of course - I noticed a career commonality: he's wet an awful damn lot in his movies. Hosed down, poured on, splashing around... he always seems to be floating in a bath-tub or just finishing a shower. So I decided to rip a page from Adam (of Club Silencio)'s play-book and highlight this as his Signature... that's a crafty way of me branding this as something more than just an excuse to post a bunch of pictures of him half-naked and wet, right? Seriously, this post wasn't meant to be so big but I just kept finding instances of this in his films... how strange, right? An odd phenomenon. Crazy!

I just saw "Quarantine" and didn't even realize it was him until the credits rolled at the end. Of course, I may have been a bit distracted by the oh-so-beautiful Jay Hernandez...

See, now here is someone who - while quite obviously ripped - is just kind of foul looking. It's quite obvious he's just vein and doesn't want to grow old as opposed to being naturally fit.
