Sweetie's Hunk of the Week this time is actually her third choice. Her first (ULTRA-SECRET, Super Mysterious) choice being deemed unacceptable by her and her second choice (Aidan Quinn) being deemed unacceptable by me, and then by her, too. So I sent Sweetie back to the drawing board and for her Hunk Of The Week she has chosen: That guy who played Mordor on "Better Off Ted."
Yes, that's exactly what she called him. I then learned she had even tried to Google That Guy Who Played Mordor on "Better off Ted" with no success. So let's learn a little more about...
That Guy Who Played Mordor on "Better Off Ted."
You/Sweetie Know Him As: "That Guy Who Played Mordor on "Better Off Ted" is best known as "That Guy Who Played Mordor on "Better Off Ted." He was the magician with Veronica as a secret assistant in the episode this week that Sweetie pretended not to be watching... but which she was apparently watching very closely.
I know him as: "That Guy Who Played Mordor on "Better Off Ted" hasn't just played Mordor. He's also That Guy Who Played ESPN Reporter In Herbie Fully Loaded, and, to tie him into last week's hunk, it turns out that he's also That Guy Who Played Dr. Scott Benson on "Ed" in 2000. Which raises the question: how's his abs?
Since he's scheduled to be That Guy Who Played Deimos in God Of War III, I bet they're pretty good. Greek gods always have awesome abs.
Thing That Makes You Go HMMMM about him: Could That Guy Who Played Mordor on "Better Off Ted" actually be the ultimate Hunk of the Week? It appears so, as he also is...
drum roll, please...
as he also is: That Guy Who Played "Hunk" in the 2005 tv show "Hot Properties."
That's right: Hunk of the Week 27 is also the only one so far who actually played a "Hunk" in the movies. I'm sure you remember Hot Properties, that touching-but-still-hilarious 2005 series that examined the lives of four women running a Manhattan real estate office.
I bet there were at least three scenes of women sitting down and taking off their shoes, sighing, and rubbing their toes. TV misses that kind of writing.
Reason I Tell Myself Sweetie Likes Him: By default/magic (tie.) Since I made Sweetie pick him, I assumed she was just grasping at (hunky) straws, but then when I found out she'd spend 98% of her time on Friday googling him, I decided: Sweetie likes magic, which is probably a carryover from the time I taught myself card tricks. That was a good summer.
Actual Reason Sweetie Likes Him: He's sexy!!!! I don't know who he is, but he's sexy! (Note: When Sweetie actually said this, I could hear at least four exclamation points after the first 'sexy'. There may have been more, though.)
Point I'd Like To Make About Sweetie's Reason For Liking Him: That's way too many exclamation points. I am erasing the search history I used to find him to prevent Sweetie (or anyone else) from ever locating information or pictures of The Guy Who Played Mordor on "Better Off Ted." I have to do it, for the sake of my own mental self-image.
So I guess you, and Sweetie, will never find out about those abs.
