Yes, yes, I've cut back a little on Menday. But it makes every post in the category that much more precious, don't you think?
I wanted to encourage everyone to keep an eye on Dev Patel. You may know him from Slumdog Millionaire but I hope you also know him from HBO's The Newsroom.
Anything Sorkin does sets every nerve in my body on fire - I loved this show. I was so sad it was short-lived but they served it well with an exhilarating final season and a lovely final episode. But in any case, Patel starred in the show as Neal, the geek who runs fictional ACN's digital arm. With vigor, passion and a dash of dry humor that could only come from Sorkin scripts.
Keep in mind, by the way, that Patel, at age 24, has already been in the business for eight years. He shot Slumdog when he was just 17.
And by the way, one of the best end-credits sequences ever, right?
This past weekend, Patel had not one but two movies open in theaters. The dystopian robot flick, Chappie, and sweet sequel, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (don't rush to judgement here - the first one was really fantastic; I swear it's not an "old people" flick).
Obviously, they don't always have to be traditionally handsome. He's adorkable, right? And, I think, a little sexy. I want more Dev Patel in my life.
