Good Morning, World

A happy 38 to the actor Aaron Yoo today -- off the top of my head without digging too deeply into it I think Aaron might be the only actor who has been killed by both Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees. (Edited to add: Yup it's true, although you can't count the Freddy vs Jason movie, I think. You have to say "in their own respective movies.") In the 2009 remake of Friday the 13th he played Chewie the stoner who gets a screwdriver thru his throat...

... and in the 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street (co-starring Carol's own Miss Rooney Mara!) Aaron played a kid named Marcus who gives Rooney a vital little bit of info she needs over the internet only to immediately have his face bashed into his computer screen. Seriously though - dude's gonna be able to travel to horror-cons for the rest of his life on those stats. Anyway these pictures here are from the television series The Tomorrow People, which... well I have no idea what that was.

Love this dude.

Tomorrow People was like a low rent X Men on the CW starring Stephen Amell's (arguably) hotter cousin Robbie Amell.

The only semi-likeable and attractive character in the F13 remake. I was so pissed when they killed him off with a subjective eternity of film left to go. I really wanted a final stoner, tradition be damned.

Tomorrow People was also a remake of a hilariously dated "Age of Aquarius" show that was supposed to be a Dr Who rival in the early seventies.
