Yeah, so, this week’s Dorking Out episode is super fun, you guys. We unveil our newly created metric for measuring an actor’s charisma: The FPJ scale.
Here’s the story: A few weeks ago, we did a podcast about all the awesome movie trailers that were released at Comic-Con. One of the trailers was for “King Arthur,” which stars Charlie Hunnam. I said that Hollywood needs to stop trying to make Charlie Hunnam happen. He’s just not going to happen. He’s not a movie star. This started an entire conversation about actors who are FINE. They don’t repel us, but they don’t draw us in. “Like Freddy Prinze, Jr.,” I said. And – ta-dah! – the FPJ scale was born. If Freddie Prinze, Jr. is a perfect 1 on the scale that goes as high as 1,000, then where does an actor like George Clooney sit on the scale? How many FPJs is an actor like Idris Alba?
Where does your favorite actor fall on the scale? You should listen and find out. Plus, Smith made a really nifty graphic. See?
We are starting work on one for actresses as well. We’re leaning toward Rachael Leigh Cook as the perfect 1, so the scale would be the RLCs. I really like the idea of basing our scale on the lead couple from “She’s All That.”
If you have thoughts and feelings about the FPJs and/or the RLCs, we’d love to hear your comments. Please go to our website and let us have it.
In this same episode, we also review “Sausage Party.” Plus, I review “The Get Down” on Netflix.
Smith and I also did The Pop Show with Master P on Sunday night. We talked about summer movies, and movies remakes that we would be OK with. Some of the answers may shock you. You can listen to that riiiight here.
