Today's Fanboy Delusion

Today I'd rather be...

... that dude hypnotized 
by half-naked Michiel Huisman.

I mean can ya blame him?

No, no you cannot. Michiel posted these shots on his Instagram, saying he's training for his new movie called Red Sea Diving Resort, which I thought sounded promising given that title. That sounds like Michiel Huisman in a wet-suit! Then I googled the movie and hey it also stars Chris Evans and Alessandro Nivola! I'm getting excited here! But upon actually reading the film's plot, it sounds less Baywatch than my imagination let on...

"The film (directed by Gideon Raff, the Israeli filmmaker behind the TV drama Prisoners of War, which was adapted as Homeland in the U.S.) recounts the true story of an Israeli reconnaissance team that decamped to an abandoned resort in Sudan in the early ’80s to rescue Ethiopian Jews who were trapped in the Northern African country. Undercover as entrepreneurs from a Swiss travel group, the spies were able to locate thousands of Ethiopians and then transport them to the Jewish state. In missions related to the one depicted in Resort, 22,000 more Ethiopian Jews were rescued via airlift.."

So it's serious then. Fine! The fact that Michiel's getting into shape for it though, well it gives me hope. Although I can't blame any actor who's about to star opposite Chris Evans for getting into shape. Anyway the film will also co-star Greg Kinnear, Ben Kingsley, Michael K. Williams, and in the token lady role Haley Bennett. (And hey we like her so if there's got to be one single female role... okay no there never does have to be just one female role, so nevermind.)
