15th-Aug-2007 05:59 am - Season 4 House promo. Sucks to be ME!
Yeah..it does, cause unlike many who are all giddy about it, it just confirms to me that as a Chaser, season 4 will suck.

Chase stuck in the background, again.
Foreman way to the forefront. GAGS! Man, I've really REALLY come to hate Foreman and wish he would DIE DIE DIE! OE ain't even close to being all that. Blech.

And no Chase in the actual clips. Gee, what a surprise. Yeppers, it's official. Season 4 is going to suck the big one for me. Figures.

Dont Make Me absolution
Hey, chasers... JS & JM are featured on a page of US Weekly. There's a bit about their engagement plus...possible spoiler.Collapse )
3rd-Aug-2007 10:34 pm - The Gargoyle Movie
So, I taped it, and I just watched it, and ... well, um ... a glass of wine definitely helped.

It was released in 2001, so I guess Jesse would have been in his early twenties when it was filmed (depending on the gap between filming and release). He was playing a 16-year-old. And he looked way too young for the part. He could have passed for twelve. But he had that deep voice, and he was trying to do an American accent (which didn't always work, bless his heart), and I've noticed that a lot of actors tend to drop their pitch when doing foreign accents (compare Hugh Laurie's normal speaking voice to his House voice, for example), so his voice was even deeper. It was kind of funny hearing this really deep voice coming from this kid who looked about twelve.

But I think our boy may have fallen into typecasting along the way. He played the school brain, and in spite of being utterly adorable, none of the girls paid him any attention (until the heroine of the movie noticed him for his brains, of course). He was also a bit of a dork who fumbled socially sometimes. In an odd subplot that didn't seem to have much to do with the rest of the movie, there were father issues, with his father being this incredibly driven ultra-capitalist who didn't approve of his son having a part-time job at some useless place like a bookstore instead of interning at a place where he could get stock options. Then when fighting the evil gargoyles from hell, he ended up teaming up with a priest, had the big breakthrough idea about how to create a lot of holy water, fast, and the priest acted like a kind of surrogate father figure who gave him the approval he didn't get from his father. Gee, does any of that sound familiar?

But the funniest thing was, when I stopped the tape at the end, my TV was set on USA, where an episode of House was just coming on, and it was one of those scenes where Chase is wearing the schoolboy sweater vest look, and I swear, he looked only slightly older than in that movie. I burst into hysterical giggles.
2nd-Aug-2007 07:58 pm - JS on Sci Fi?
I was scrolling through my cable channel guide this evening (looking to see the listing for tomorrow night's Doctor Who) and came across a movie showing overnight on the Sci Fi Channel that had Jesse Spencer listed as a cast member -- Curse of the Talisman, from 2001. It said something about teens having to battle medieval gargoyles. It's on from 2-4 a.m., Central Time.

Has anyone seen this one? Is it our Jesse Spencer? I may have to set the VCR, just for grins.
28th-Jun-2007 12:29 am - Did anyone else see this?

Sorry if I'm posting common knowledge.  I first saw this today.
25th-Jun-2007 01:38 pm - Vote

The difference is ONE vote at the moment. It's going to be a photo-finish (no pun intended). Vote for Jesse!
24th-Jun-2007 03:35 pm - Alert, go vote!
This poll closes tomorrow & JS is barely ahead. So please vote early & often!


(Yes, I'm being very shallow ;D)
