Top 5 Tuesday

Tuesday, April 21, 2009
While I had a legitimate excuse for last week's paltry effort at a decent Top 5 list, I fear I have no such excuse for what I shall put forth tonight. I've spent the majority of the day at or near my computer, working on a family project and sending a variety of important e-mails and yet, the day just slipped right by without even the glimmer of a great idea for my list. I blame the heat. The freakish, ninety-degree plus heat wave that is remarkably reminiscent of a Texas spring. I fear my time in California has made me thin-skinned and intolerant of any extreme weather!

As the only thing I am motivated to do on this sweltering evening is to gaze upon my television, admiring the endearingly hilarious behavior of Dr. Walter Bishop, I thought it might be a grand idea for a substitute, b-team version of a top 5 list to simply present a few images of the five actors that I'd see in anything. It's possible that I might have stolen this very idea from EW, but I don't feel too badly about it.

Now, as this is a last minute list, I'm not going to qualify or elaborate upon my choices. It's not exactly the same as a list of favorites, but something close.

5. Rachel McAdams

4. Ryan Gosling

3. Benicio del Toro

2. Kate Winslet

1. Russell Crowe

Next week, I'm hoping that I won't have to take frequent breaks from my Top 5 writing to stick my head in the freezer in a vain effort to cool down. It should be better.

Well, your lack of elaboration beckons commentary! Russell Crowe? I do need to know why. The others, I can see--ooh! Maybe you meant Leonardo DiCaprio? Think about it, he is in everything not to miss! :)

You're right about Leo-he should prob. be above Rach. But I have to defend RUSSELL CROWE? The man rarely makes a bad film, rarely. Definitely not attracted to him, but he's a fine, fine actor.
