Isn’t it weird that some serial killers are hot? I realize that statement could put me on a “most wanted” list, but hear me out.
Haven’t you ever seen American Psycho? You could bounce a Ginsu knife off of Christian Bale’s washboards. Sure, he’s got a funny nose, a terrible Batman voice, and a penchant for being a butt smack on the set, but anyone who can wield a chainsaw in the raw is okay in my book.
Another slasher who liked to kill in the buff was in the controversial film Cruisin’ in the ’70s that used the seedy, gay underbelly of gay San Francisco as its back drop, and gave Al Pacino the hilariously classic line, “I like it party size.”
Who could forget Brad Pitt as lovable, white-trash-come-serial-killer “Early” in one of my favorite flicks, Kalifornia? Come to think of it, he had a nude ditch digging scene, and I have yet to see a better way to dig a hole. Hmmm… I’m beginning to see a trend.
Norman Bates had that golly shucks, geek chic thing going. Albeit much prettier in khakis than mama’s Sunday best.
And, I think Mark Harmon is way more remembered for his portrayal of diabolically good-looking, real life serial killer Ted Bundy than being hitched to Mork and Mindy‘s Pam Dawber. (Not that there is anything wrong with that.)
Suffice it to say, I would not want to be whacked by some ugsabelle. If I have to be a murder victim, they had better be hot!
Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the ’70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael’s first published book, Homo-Hero’s Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the “Divas and Lassoes” panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his “underground” status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).
