LOST and Bothered.

It's a New Year. At the start of anything new, you should always be thankful for the good things in life. Like all the characters on LOST who are HOT. I think '09 is really going to be Ben's year, so who better to appreciate?

Ben is a man of power. Who doesn't love that (unless he's trying to kill or manipulate you?)? I'm going out on a limb here to say that Ben definitely has some hotness to him, but it might just be best to admire it from a distance.

Fun Ben facts:

  • he kills both his parents (technically he kills his mom by being born) on his birthday
  • he has multiple names/passports including Henry Gale and Dean Moriarty
  • he was born in Portland!
  • young Ben looks like Vince
  • the actor who plays Ben, Michael Emerson, gets his haircut at the same place as J.Cremer in Manhattan

I think what makes Ben so great is that he's such an interesting character. He's constantly playing mind games, beating people up, befriending them, saying things you think have hidden meaning, the list goes on. He's a self-made man! He's super smart! He totally makes the show most of the time. And he creeps me out! Nothing hotter than that.

Does this mean you're attracted to a young Vince?

Are you saying VInce isn't young anymore?

although vince is the oldest man I know, who doesn't find his curmudgeonly charm appealing?

Does that mean you find Ben's curmudgeonly charm appealing? Oh wait, you already said you did.
