This week’s Babe and Bro of the Week are two TV stars, both from The Great White North, that are about to become mega huge movie stars.
First, in honor of his movie John Carter coming out this weekend (just saw a preview screening, and I have three words: Go see it!), we have our Bro of the Week, Friday Night Lights star Taylor Kitsch!
Kitsch is basically the hunky embodiment of Tiger Beat magazine, but he’s also done projects that have endeared him to the male population – notably FNL and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, where he played a badass Gambit. It seems Kitsch is constantly cast as a Southerner (even John Carter is a Confederate war veteran), so I didn’t know he was hockey-playing Canuck until very recently. Taylor, I could have sworn you were one of our own!
Next is a woman who’s gonna rock your body till Canada Day…. Cobie Smulders!!
Smulders hails from Vancouver, BC, and I don’t know if they grow them extra hot up there to make up for the cold temperatures or what, but this girl is smokin’. Not only that, she’s also really, really funny as Robin Scherbatsky on How I Met Your Mother, where she plays a scotch-drinking TV journalist that used to be a Canadian teen pop sensation named Robin Sparkles (she’s basically my hero). This summer, she will get her big movie break playing S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill in The Avengers, directed by geek god Joss Whedon (who seems to have an unnatural fascination with Smulders and even wanted her to play Wonder Woman).
And she really, really wants you to go to the mall.
Have any suggestions for future TV Babes or Bros of the week? Sound off in the comments!
