Sort the Stars: Jeff Bridges and Jeff Daniels

Do you know how I know these two guys are worth sorting? Mr. Sally J was getting tripped up as I was quizzing him. Unlike DeNiro and Pacino, or Ice T and Ice Cube, the Jeffs caused Mr. Sally J to stumble a bit. This is a sure sign that these are stars that need to be sorted.  Read More Sort the Stars: Jeff Bridges and Jeff Daniels

Sorting the Stars: Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg

Today’s Sorting the Stars is a tale that started back in the early ’70s in Boston. It involves the tale of two handsome young men, one born into an upper middle class family, the other into a tough neighborhood. One was in a boy band, the other grew up besties with another young actor. Today we are sorting Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg.  Read More Sorting the Stars: Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg

Sorting the Stars: Kiefer Sutherland and Val Kilmer

This week’s edition of Sorting the Stars comes courtesy of my recent discovery of 24 on Netflix. In 1989, I knew Kiefer and Val like any Generation Xer should. But it’s been more than 20 years, and I no longer read Tiger Beat. So these two get muddled like everyone else. As I was watching Mr. Sutherland in his role as Jack Bauer, I kept thinking, “He’s really changed since he was Iceman.” Then it hit me. He wasn’t Iceman. My 1989 self was a little ashamed of my blunder.  Read More Sorting the Stars: Kiefer Sutherland and Val Kilmer

Sorting the Stars: Barry Bostwick and Bruce Davison

Welcome to another week of sorting two actors I don’t have straight in my head. Today I’m focusing on Barry Bostwick and Bruce Davison. Better known as Brad Majors from Rocky Horror Picture Show and George Henderson from the TV series Harry and the HendersonsRead More Sorting the Stars: Barry Bostwick and Bruce Davison

Sorting the Stars: Paul Newman and Steve McQueen

This week I’m going to focus on two the coolest men in Hollywood- Paul Newman and Steve McQueen. Before Paul started making Newman’s Own salad dressing and Sheryl Crow sang about the Bandito in “Steve McQueen,” these two icons were two of the best known faces in Hollywood.

Sorting the Stars: Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley

This week I had a request to sort Ms. Portman and Ms. Knightley. I was pretty sure I knew Queen Amidala from Elizabeth Swan, but I’ve learned it never hurts to double check the IMDB. Turns out, I was right about Star Wars v. the Pirates franchise, but I learned a few things, too.  Read More Sorting the Stars: Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley

Sorting the Stars: Dylan McDermot and Dermot Mulroney

So here’s the thing: there is no shortage of men who fit Hollywood’s “tall, dark, and handsome” stereotype. I just never realized how many men fit that bill in my own head, all currently pushing 50, until I started sorting out who I thought were Dylan McDermot and Dermot Mulroney. Turns out, dear readers, I was very confused (a shock, I know).  Read More Sorting the Stars: Dylan McDermot and Dermot Mulroney
