    Just remembered a little bit of nostalgia when I was growing up in Scotland back in the 00s - one of my favourite Friday night shows with friends over at my place was a tragically short-lived (only 13 episodes!) called "Freakylinks". Long story short, its about a group of four people who put up videos and recordings of their investigations into the paranormal, one of whom lost his brother in a mysterious incident at a haunted house. Now you may be wondering by now why exactly I fell in love with the series, but for the lead character played by Ethan Embry, one of the great unknown minor TV actors of last decade:

    Screencap from one of his indie movies, Pizza (2005):

    More on the man himself:

    Granted, he may not exactly be my type (think along the lines of Vin Diesel or Matthew Rush GOOD GOD ARE THEY HOT) and he may be a little rusty round the edges due to aging, but something about his character in that show strikes me as what I would deem as an "all-rounder" - the kind of guy any person would be glad to have as a partner in life IMHO - you decide, RJ?

    Plus, this dude knows how to rip out a good tune:



    Take some time to watch all thirteen episodes of Frakylinks BTW - Youtube has all of them on one channel, but the graphics are kinda sucky icon_sad.gif

    Yup that's where I remember him from oh and Can't Hardly Wait. Jennifer Love Hewitt is so hot in that movie, and he was so cute giving her the letter.

    pity we all can't get a "dorian gray" portrait done @ age 24, hey?

    time and gravity takes it's toll on all of us.

    that "nanny goat" chin fuzz did NOTHING for him wayyyyy back then. he looks much better with the trimmed beard and glasses pic, IMO.

    It looks like he let himself go a little bit. If he took off extra weight and cleaned up the facial hair he'd still be pretty good looking! I believe in aging gracefully while keeping yourself together.

    Reminded me of a chipmunk when he was younger...the nervous energy was fun.

    And he was good looking up till 2006 or so.

    He was Bobby Ray, the gay best friend of Melanie Carmichael, in Sweet Home Alabama. I also liked him in Dutch with Ed O'Neil.

    Isn't he bi or came out saying he liked to make out with guys (that is as far as he could go)?

    ScottCLEIt looks like he let himself go a little bit . . . I believe in aging gracefully while keeping yourself together.


    Here's to aging gracefully!

    Yeah, I get what you mean dude, but there seems to be a timeless quality to these pictures of Ethan that makes me all the more imagine a person out there who exhibits these ideals.

    Maybe that's the magic of a good fictional story - I'm either being unrealistically poetic or unimaginably high right now IDK, but I cannot help but shrug it off whenever I rewatch an episode of Freakylinks. Kinda makes me wanna think twice about having to rush out there to get a real boyfriend when I can still dream of this perfect piece of my imagination lol

    He is very attractive. I like it when someone finds another attractive who is not considered mainstream hot or fell out of some abercrombie magazine.. makes them and that person even hotter.icon_razz.gif

    I love FreakyLinks. I even listed it on my Facebook page as one of my favorite TV shows. It's still on, occasionally, on the Chiller Channel.

    Always thought Ethan Embry was VERY hot. Those amazing eyes, among other things. . .

    He's a good actor too.

    I've noticed he needs to lose a few pounds. . . not that much, really, just a few. . . and get in better shape. He looks especially good with muscles.

    But even chunky, he's still hot!! icon_biggrin.gif
