It's kind of strange how the blogosphere has been so quiet lately. Many regular posters have been skipping days... even weeks... and, most surprising, I haven't seen any new memes running around. I don't know if the advent of Spring is causing people to be distracted, or if bloggers are just tired of blogging. These things run in cycles I suppose.
Imagine my surprise when I see a new meme has been started over at DOWN WITH PANTS! (just after their one-year anniversary, I might add). Inspired by Jay & Silent Bob's bit on VH1, I give you Three Guys I Might Go Gay For. Since this is not a topic I tend to think about, I've decided to make it easy on myself and stick to movie actors so I don't have to get into sports stars, singers, politicians, and other guys I don't know much about...
Hugh Grant. I will admit that I find nothing attractive about Hugh Grant, but his lips used to be pressed against various Elizabeth Hurley body parts, which is somehow appealing to me. He's not an overly-great actor, but he finds roles that he is well-suited for (I thought he was especially good in Notting Hill) so perhaps I could use that as a reason to go all gay over him. Well, that and his money, of course.
Dominic Monaghan. The least gay of all the gay Hobbits in Lord of the Rings, Dominic Monaghan is HOT! Because of his humor, he is one of the few characters on Lost who can divert my attention from Evangeline Lilly (who he happens to be dating), so I can only guess that I could go all gay over him.
Scott Plank. In an attempt to be semi-serious here, if I were to go gay, there is one actor I can think of that I wouldn't mind spending time with... mainly because I have been lucky enough to spend time with him (uhhh... but not like that!): Scott Plank. Unfortunatley, he has passed on, so I'm not sure if he counts. I met Scott during a horrible three month involvement I had with a Hollywood movie project, and can say in all honesty that he was the ONLY person I met during that time who wasn't a self-involved, artificial, arrogant, jerk. When the project ultimately fell apart, I tried my best to put it behind me and forget all about it, but it would be difficult to forget such a fun, humble, kind person like Scott Plank. I was saddened to hear he had died, even more upset that his potential as an actor was never realized while he was alive, and am devastated that my search for photos of him on the internet found practically nothing (the above image was from some kind of stage play he was involved in, because pictures of his television and movie roles don't seem to exist?). Granted he wasn't especially famous, but he was on a number of shows like Air America, Strange Luck, and Melrose Place... surely he should be remembered somewhere? Anyway, a guy could do a lot worse than going all gay over Scott Plank.
And there you have it. In reviewing my picks, I'm not sure what they say about my choice in men. Humor perhaps? That seems to make sense, because once you remove things like "breasts" out of the female equation, that's an appealing factor for me.
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
Hehe, what a great idea for a meme.

If I was a man, I would go gay for you! :)))
Just a big fan and new to the blog universe… you inspire me!
I just read in a music magazine that there’s a band going by the name of ‘Gay for Johnny Depp’ (http://gayforjohnnydepp.com/) which reminded me of your post here…
Is the Scott guy rolling a joint?
I met Scott and I know what you mean. He’s the kind of person that makes you question your sexual orientation. I don’t think it was me as I never felt that way about a guy but I did meet other guys who said they would consider … Scott. He was completely open with no agenda but extremely sexual and he seemed to know the effect he had on guys and he was okay with it.
Well, I was joking about that… but not about what a nice guy Scott was. You are right though, he didn’t seem to have any agenda, which was a refreshing change from other actors and Hollywood “people” I met who would kill their own mother to get ahead in the biz.
C’mon you definitely seem to be gay in your description of these men!
I was always so in love with Scott Plank. Was devastated to learn of his death. He is so fabulous looking in “Chorus Line” in those white lycra pants.
If you want just one nude shot of him go to
http://www.hunkvideo.com, scroll down to the Movie Buff Checklist online and type Scott Plank into the search slot. You’ll get the shot of him from Saints and Sinners. Enjoy.
I went to school with Scott – Elementary, Middle and High School. He was such a great person – easy to laugh with, talk to and so very normal. Even though he was an actor, he never forgot his friends back in Florida both male and female. I don;t think he met a person he didn’t like! And he truly was a sexy looking guy! Such a shame that he died so young.
LOL, I never would have thought of any of the hobbits as being gay. Thanks for the laugh.
Don’t even know if you’ll read this 2 odd years later but I just had to say how wonderful it was to read somebody,anybody say not only something about Scott but such wonderful things as well. In my search for pics of him I got 2 results,the one you have posted here and one other. So very sad.
Well I decided if there wasn’t a site for Scott then i’d just have to start one:)
I’m just getting it going but I already have a complete tv appearances section complete with links and the first of many screen cap posts to come. I’d love to hear what you think.
From the Netherlands. Learned just yesterday about his death. Was sad about it. I remember seeing him in Sons and daughters and then his face was familiar to me. I then remembered the Chorus line with this great looking dancer and saw it was him. What a great dancer he was. I am happy to read such nice comments about him, he must have been a special person. Hope we can keep his memory alive.
Look at this memorial for Scott.
Very nice! Thanks so much for the link!
Scot was a very kind person and very nice!
Thanks so much for the link!
