Boy, oh Boy!

Girls aren't the only ones with talent. I thought I'd pay homage to some great actors I've encountered bearing a Y Chromosome.

Hal Ozsan
This hottie of Turkish descent won over hearts on the uber-popular series "Dawson's Creek" way back when. That show is long gone, but Hal certainly is not. These days you can find him rocking out with his band "Poets or Pornstars" or exhibiting his acting talents on various tv shows and movies.

Jayson Blair
Pretty new to the whole hollywood scene, Jayson has yet worked up the usual laundry list of credits attained by most actors. Still, he's a talent that shouldn't be ignored. I would expect to see his adorable face with increasing frequency over the next few years.

Matt Lanter
I met this kid at a party back in early '05 when he was only 2 months in LA. That just goes to show that good talent doesn't always have to work its way up the ranks. In only a few months time, Matt had landed a starring role on the popular ABC series "Commander in Chief." He even had a notable arc in the increasingly popular series "Heroes." One thing is for sure, he's going places, and he's getting there fast.

Corbin Bleu and Zac Efron
These Disney Channel alumni are getting pretty big buzz post-"High School Musical" frenzy. Efron is rumored to be starring in the movie version of the musical "Hairspray," and Corbin's newest Disney Channel movie "Jump In" was one of the most watched programs in all of cable channel history. I would be interested in seeing where the future takes these two young hearthrobs.
