He's hot, hot, hot. Is he gay? He lives in Austin because he doesn't like Hollywood. Red flag: Joy asked him on The View this morning if he had a girlfriend. All he would say is he's "married to his career." I'd love to have him on our team.
So hot! He doesn't ping to me though.
He's straight. He's dated a number of local girls - no one famous, but I casually know one of them and she's a sweetheart (not to mention hot). Considering he'll have had three films come out in 2012 alone, all filmed far away from Austin, I'm not surprised he's presently single.
Who cares. He'll never be heard from again after this year.
Lol at r3!
He may still get a few roles here and there.
Look at Nicole Kidman.
So good in Friday Night Lights. He deserved better. And so damn hot.

He's not single--he clearly must be dating some girl in Europe.
Again, with big male movie stars, it happens all the time.
B-b-but, h-h-he...he...he, oh never mind.
I love him. He's hot. I think he'd kick back with a beer and let a dude blow him.
What business was it of Joy's to ask him a personal question like that? Why not just ask him about the movie?
[quote]Who cares. He'll never be heard from again after this year.
He still has a lead role in Oliver Stone's next film coming out later this summer. If you've forgotten about the potential that starring in an ultraviolent Stone film can have on one's career, look at Brad Pitt and Woody Harrelson.
His first 2 films this year bombed because they were bad films....no one in America knows who he is well enough to say "I am not going to see that Taylor Kitsch movie." I think he will be just fine if he picks better projects.
And lets dudes blow him.
I loved John Carter and thought a crappy marketing campaign and even crappier title doomed what was one of the most enjoyable sci-fi films I've ever seen. And not even Lawrence Olivier could've saved "Battleship." I think industry people understand that those films' underperformance isn't Taylor Kitsch's fault at all, though I bet studios will be more cautious about betting the farm on no-names as leads in the future.
By all accounts, Kitsch is hard-working, good to work with and very professional. He's also not a drunk or drugged-out mess and he's truly athletic, not just a hulked out gymrat, so he's perfect for roles that call for athleticism, like John Carter - he did all his own stunts and they're pretty amazing to watch on screen. So he'll keep getting work, if he picks smaller, more understated roles. I don't think he has a big enough personality to carry bombastic action films, but he's great in an ensemble.
And I totally think he's gay.
After he said "I'm married to my career", Joy said "So that means he's single, girls." And Taylor says "Uh, no."
Sherry asks what he means by married to his career and he said "Take it for what it is" very dismissively. Very weird and awkward exchange.
I want to know the reasons why people think he's gay. I don't have an opinion, I've never seen him move or heard him speak, but he's hot enough.
I worked with him on "FNL". Trust me, the camera loves him. Kind of short and blobby in person, no plains on the face, weird because I too thought he was so hot on the show -- but not in person.
How short he?
R14, the question is: why do interviewers always have to be so nosy about actor's personal lives today? They don't they just focus on their films, and lay off the personal questions?
50 years ago if you asked questions like that to Humphrey Bogart or Katharine Hepburn, they would punch the interviewer in the face.
Today people seem to have no problem asking personal questions.
I agree with Hugh's post at r13, except for the last line. I don't think Kitsch is gay, but I do think he's very private. I got the impression that saying he's married to his career was just to avoid talking about his personal life and not to hide in the closet. But who knows... That's just my take; I have no insider info.
[quote]How short he?
He's pretty definitively 5'10". I think that's average, but he's very broad and I think that makes him look shorter than he really is.
The "no planes on his face" person posts on every Taylor Kitsch thread. Sometimes he says that he worked on FNL, sometimes he says he knows him from around Austin, sometimes they have a mutual friend. Really odd.
There are a lot of reasons I think he could be gay. For one thing, he was Chace Crawford's "roommate" for a year or so. He used to party with the Matt Morrison/ JC Chasez/ Shawn Pyfrom/ Chace/ Colton Haynes/ Bryan Singer/ DLB crew, and I think all those guys are gay. Or maybe he's just open minded?
I've heard he's a little rough around the edges and eccentric one on one, coarse and off the cuff, and that some people find that refreshing and other people find it off putting. I've never met him, but he seems earnest and kind of awkward in interviews.
5'10 is not short, nor is 5'9 for that matter.
Anyway, speaking of Chace Crawford, they appeared together in "The Covenant", a 2006 movie about a group of young warlocks who spend most of their time half-naked.
Searching for movie now. I wanna blow him.
Which movie are you searching for, R22?
I thought that MHB said that Taylor was NOT gay, but very gay friendly?
Savages or Battleship. Netflix turns up 0 results. Looks like I have to go to Redbox or Blockbuster.
He and Hugh Jackman have been close. They vacationed together at one point. Make of that what you will.
R26, he actually said in an interview last year that Hugh Jackman introduced him to a few people to get the ball rolling on his career. Make of THAT what you will.
R25, why not check out "The Covenant"? You'll get Taylor and several others guys for the price of one.
[quote]Savages or Battleship. Netflix turns up 0 results. Looks like I have to go to Redbox or Blockbuster.
"Battleship" came out in May; "Savages" comes out later this month. You'll have to wait a while for the videos. That said, "John Carter" is out on DVD and has copious scenes of Taylor shirtless and/or in a veritable loincloth.
R26 & R27 - you've apparently forgotten that Hugh and Taylor co-starred in "Wolverine" together, which was indeed Taylor's first big-budget film. Doesn't surprise me that they're friends, but you also shouldn't read too much into it.
He's straight. I knew one of his close friends a few years ago when he was playing minor league hockey in my town. He played hockey with Taylor in high school and they're still good friends and hang out together. They love the ladies.
That remains to be seen, R30.
Time will tell.
If the stories he gives on late night talk shows are true, Taylor Kitsch hasn't played minor league hockey since he was 20, more than a decade ago.
And no, R29, that's where they met, but it's clear they kept in touch long after. Could be nothing though.
R31, it doesn't "remain to be seen." It's been reported on other Taylor Kitsch threads that he has an active love life, with women, in Austin, where he lives when he's not filming something.
He's gay. My brother has a friend of a friend who fucked him in a Hotel room, then left money on the bedside table thinking he was a hooker.
There, R30, now we're both liars.
Kitsch? That's unacceptable.
He's gay. I lived in Austin, where he lived, and worked as a key grip in FNL. He had a male friend who would frequently visit him on set who was gay, very sexy. The two would disappear for hours in his trailer.
He's bi. I know this for a fact because he dated two friends of mine, a male and a female.
A fact, I tell you. A fact.
Maybe we should call him bi, and leave it at that.
Fuck you all! He's pan.
He's trans. I live in Austin and worked on FNL as a personal assistant. I recall a big meeting about Taylor's transition from male to female and how they would incorporate this into the FNL storyline.
Sigh, it's funny how if the gossip was him being gay it would be accepted, but god forbid someone give gossip that a celebrity actually happens to be straight and people want to attack and mock them.
It defeats the purpose of gossiping if we assume every attractive celebrity must be gay, whats the point in trying to track down accurate stories about those who actually are gay?
Because it's not gossip, R41. It's usually some self-loathing, or homophobic shrill posting "he's straight!" shit all over the board, and we are mocking those assholes for it.
At this point I'm going with gay.
[quote]Sigh, it's funny how if the gossip was him being gay it would be accepted
This is a GAY GOSSIP SITE, braintrust.
Anyway, Taylor actually has a cute guy friend who travels with him, worked with him on FNL in some capacity, and lives in Austin. If you look through any fan gallery of Taylor Kitsch candids, you'll see this guy in many of them dating back at least 3 years. Here's them partying with Rihann some time this year. The traveling companion is in aviators and a red t-shirt.
Pretty sure that's also him on the left, this is them going back to Austin from LAX a few days ago. I'm pretty sure there are some pics from this pap shoot that you can see it's the same guy but I can't find it right now.
I saw him on some talk show a few months back, and I have to say he pinged a little.
Supposedly he revealed he was uncut during an interview in Canada a few years ago.
Dude at R20, it's "plains" not "planes" as in airplanes and I can assure you I am the guy who posts this on several threads -- but the origins of how I met him NEVER change. I acted with him on the show and that's it, no mutual friends, no Austin anything, no gossip, just a weird response to how NOT hot he looked in person.
Not sure who you are troll-dar ing but my story always remains the same. Trust me, meeting and working with him was no big deal (I've worked with bigger and better, ha).
I'd like to sniff his musky "John Carter" loincloth.
R45, R30 here. That's the friend I was talking about. He plays hockey in England now. He has an MBA from the University of Sheffield. He lived with Kitsch for a while when Kitsch first went to NYC.
I love how just asking if you have a girlfriend is some intrusive personal question.
She asked if he had a girlfriend...not his social security number or his home address.
R53, I think you miss the point. I realize that's a common question today, but his reaction shows that there are some actors who are sick of being asked about it, particularly on national television.
His reaction indicates that it is an intrusive personal question to some people.
I think you're being a bit melodramatic.
R50, it's Planes, not Plains.
I can't get beyond his stupid name.
LOL at R50's whole post.
I love Taylor Kitsch :) I want marry with him~~!!! I'm a girl anyway!
He makes awful movies - John Carter and Battleship. He's also too short.
What ethnicity is he? Kitsch - it sounds German.
He's a schnitzel schnapper!
I'm stupidly wading into this argument with this contribution. Take it or leave it.
The guy is either straight, bi or deeply closeted.
He was at Chantal Bergron's (who was doing hair on one of his films, I forget which) bday dinner about 5 years ago and he had his tongue shoved down some girls throat for the 20 minutes he was there.
He wasnt famous back then though. The only reason I remember him is because 1) none of his other co-stars showed. It wasnt a glitzy type of dinner but its always nice when your work colleagues show up.
2) they were so inappropriate.
He's 5'6". Also, he's shaved 7-8 years off his age.
Taylor Kitsch,I know that u will never read this post.Anyway I wanna tell u,that I'm in love with u sooo sooo sooo much!U r the man of my dream!I've never met someone like you in my life!I don't know why but your eyes seem sad very often even though you smile.you look very sincere and straight,true and noble!I wish to have you in my life!!!I wish you all the best!
By far the biggest flameout and flop in Hollywood in several decades.
Girls, why would you bump this lame thread?
Why do you care about this pocket gay?
He is not a flame-out, r65...you need to get a life!
I wouldn't be so sure..ie. person who thinks he will dissapear. There are always opportunities for those who can acutally act. Taylor Kitsch is a professional.
I think Taylor is just gay friendly, because he's close friends with JC Chasez. And, Taylor has amazing abs!
I would do him so dirty he would be so rough and i would love every minute
He's not gay. I know a few of his past girlfriends since we are from the same place. He is actually tall. He is 6 feet. His two movies were not a hit because of marketing not because of him. He is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and yes he is just as good
looking in person.
That's fine R73, but he's got the flop smell on him. 3 high profile flops (including the Oliver Stone movie) in the same year are hard to live down.
I find his face ugly now. I hate that tiny little pig nose and puffy face ew.
And the taint of John Carter will follow him for a while. It was branded the biggest flop of all time (even though that's not the truth). Add another notable flop in 2012 and he's completely over as a lead in big budget films. He'll probably still carve out a very respectable career though.
Try [italic]the Bang Bang Club[/italic] to see both Taylor Kitsch and Ryan Philippe.
Taylor Kitsch was the least of John Carter's problems.
Taylor Kitsch has a very pretty...and tasty...pee-pee.
His body was spectacular in John Carter. If you hit the mute button while watching it, the film becomes watchable simply because of how much skin we see of Taylor.
Hugh, I hope you realize that's not a picture of Taylor Kitsch.
When did Taylor pose for that picture?
Towards the end of last year he was still dating Jennifer, from Austin. They have been together for some years but I don't know if they are still together. Unfortunately, he is not gay, what a waste!
I think he is gay.
Bumping so as not to hijack the JG/ZQ thread with my Taylor Kitsch gossip.
As far as I know, as I said in the other thread, he does date women, but I don't know if that's exclusive. He had a girlfriend in Austin who wasn't in the industry for few years. The gossip was that she was much more serious about him than he was about her. He did not appear to give two shits about her, since he bitched about her clinginess a lot and would disappear for months for work without calling her regularly. But she was willing to be the port in that harbor for him for a long time and they broke up only a few months ago. And then there was the Minka Kelly fiasco -- that was disastrous.
However, if he's straight, he is very open-minded and gay-friendly. He's very supportive of LGBT rights, like many Canadians I suppose, and it's apparently a total non-issue to him. He's very, very liberal and very, very eccentric. He was homeless for a few years (not news) and comes from a dirt poor background, so I get the impression, from what I've heard, that people tend to find him refreshing and unpretentious because of how humble that made him. He has a very good sense of humor, but his publicist frequently complains that he doesn't listen to anything she tells him to do, preferring to let "the work" speak for itself. I get the impression she thinks he's bordering on naive.
He did live with Chace Crawford for almost a year, but they don't hang out anymore; I don't know what happened there. He was definitely part of JC Chasez' party crew for a while there, though.
Neither he nor Aaron Taylor-Johnson could stand Blake Lively on the set of "Savages." Everyone thought she gave a very disappointing performance. Salma Hayek felt bad for her, but everyone else made it known they thought she was the weak link.
He didn't like Rihanna at first on "Battleship," either - she was chronically tardy and a total noob - but I'm told she eventually won him over. He really loved Alexander Skarsgard, though.
He took the public fleecing and failure of John Carter extremely hard and personally. The other 2 movies he hadn't been banking on doing well, but he really believed in JC as a project. Director Andrew Stanton liked him very much, and had started pitching a second project with TK as the star before the JC meltdown, but now no studio would touch that combination.
From The Normal Heart set, supposedly Taylor was very open and friendly to JG and JG really took to him and they hung out a bit. I imagine JG must have found him disarming coming from a theater background.
Oh, and he has told people he WOULD consider doing TV again, "for the right project."
That's all I can think of off the top of my head. It's probably more than most people ever want to know about Taylor Kitsch, but there you go.
Thanks, R84! That was quite detailed, I appreciate it! His poor ex-gf, I guess? I don't know anything about the Minka Kelly issue...
I can imagine Jon finding that unpretentiousness quite refreshing as you said on the other thread. His own background is quite uncomplicated it would seem and Zach comes across as quite the opposite (not judging, just observing).
I do hope he and Jon can stay friends. It's always good to have friends outside your own close circle in my view.
[quote]All he would say is he's "married to his career."
I think he and his career need to start seeing other people.
Yes, thank you for sharing, r85. I followed you from the ZQ/JG thread...
Taylor was beautiful when he was younger. Stunning, in fact.
Yeah, I hear she was really long-suffering.
He sounds like a difficult person to be in a relationship with to me. He lives in Austin, where he built a house in the middle of nowhere, but he is constantly in Vancouver , and when he has downtime, he travels extensively. He doesn't seem to like to live in any one place. Maybe that's the result of his years of homelessness and destitution, IDK.
I can imagine that, R88.
He seems to make friendships through all his films and shows, which is sweet.
I had been curious how he and Jon would get along, but was still quite surprised Jon was so taken with with him...pleasantly surprised.
Is he actually done with his house in Austin, R88? He seems to be back there again already.
How is he eccentric, any interesting anecdotes :)?
Brad Pitt never worked with Oliver Stone.
He's a hermaprhodite. I live in Austin and worked on FNL as a fluffer. I recall a big meeting about Taylor's fucking himself when he drank too much at bars.
Thanks for the details, r84.
Another believable version of the story, thanks R92!
John Carter was actually one of the better popcorn movies of recent years, and Taylor Kitsch was quite good in his role. He may have been a tad too young to play since John Carter character should be probably around 40. The biggest problem was the marketing of the film, they couldn't make up their minds how to best promote it, so they released the lamest trailer that made nobody want to see the film. Nobody was sure what the film wanted to be. It grossed $282 million globally which is pretty good,but they needed to make at least $500 million to make a profit from the over $200 million it took to make and promote the film. They should have titled and marketed it either with the original titled, A Princess Of Mars, or as an alternative, John Carter of Mars (or Barsoom).
R95, it was an unlucky year for him, so I hope for his sake (and as a fan of Jonathan Groff hoping to see good chemistry and interaction) that The Normal Heart can better showcase his talent. It has to be there if so many thought he was excellent in FNL.
I agree R95, I recently saw John Carter and found it to be an incredibly entertaining film. It was marketed very poorly which is not to Taylor's fault. I hope the kid gets another chance at something that he could brand himself with.
I saw on Twitter the other day that his name was mentioned as a possible new Batman to be considered. How old is he anyway? At least 28? Henry just turned 30, so, that could work out.
He's 31. I kind of hope he gets more interesting roles than that though.
Why don't these chat show people ever ask guys if they have a boyfriend?
I think it would be great if they would at least ask an actor, whose sexuality hasn't been confirmed or stated previously, if he has a girlfriend OR boyfriend. I doubt that will happen anytime soon though.
He was so hot in Savages.
I used to dream of being in a threesome with Tim (Kitsch) and Billy Riggins (Derek Philips).
He doesn't ping for me either, but that doesn't mean anything. The "married to my career" comment is a dead giveaway, though ... that and his associations with most of Hollywood's gay community (Haynes, Crawford, Singer, Morrison, etc).
Derek (Billy Riggins) is 37 and unmarried. Just saying. I don't know anything one way or another, other than he looks damn fine in bikini briefs.
R84 here. I haven't been able to reply due to primetime.
R106, Chace and Taylor were roommates for just under a year after they filmed that shitty movie they were in together. He was buddies with Jessica Lucas and Sebastian Stan back then, too. Long after he moved to Austin for Friday Night Lights, he'd crash at Chace's house whenever he went to LA. It's one of his eccentricities that he doesn't like to stay in hotels and prefers to couch-surf with friends whenever possible instead.
Everything I've heard about him being a little odd has been pretty harmless - things like having a very forward manner, wearing the same exact suit to every event (drove the publicist nuts) and listening exclusively to country music. (This is not odd, per se, but maybe odd for a Canadian.)
Like I said, I suspect some of that is related to having been homeless for so long.
Yes, Taylor finished the house in Austin. Recently, I'm told. It took him forever apparently? I'm told he has a new casual girlfriend. Same shit as before, he shit-talks her to people but still brings her to events.
Thanks for replying again R84/R107!
I really appreciate all these details!!
He really sounds like an interesting and nice guy...until you mention how he treats his girlfriends. That seems odd somehow, like it doesn't quite fit with the rest of his story, but what do I know, haha.
Did you hear anything more about him hanging out with Jon?
I'm sorry if I'm boring you with all these questions and please feel free to tell me if I am!!
No offense, but I think you're making alot of this stuff up. He clearly states in interviews that he was only homeless for a few weeks; as in sleeping in the subway. And for such a private man, I find it funny that he would date a girl and badmouth her to everyone. Kinda not his style. You should not spread rumors about him. And his publicist should be fired if she is really talking badly about him. Who cares if he wears the same suit? Did you guys in the states just go through a bad recession? I think it's great if he's actually getting use out of an expensive suit!
[quote]He was so hot in Savages.
I just watched it on HBO, and you're absolutely right.
[quote]However, if he's straight, he is very open-minded and gay-friendly. He's very supportive of LGBT rights, like many Canadians I suppose, and it's apparently a total non-issue to him. He's very, very liberal and very, very eccentric.
He also supports gay marriage, has said it many times.
I haven't heard anything more about his friendship with Jon, I'm sorry. TBH, I haven't talked to the friend that is friends with his publicist in a few weeks. I agree that his publicist sounds questionable, btw, though I don't know her personally. She's only been his publicist for about 18 months or so.
R109, he was only homeless in NYC for a few months, but he was homeless and/or couch surfing for 2 years in LA. But you don't have to believe me if you don't want to! It is the Internet, after all.
Thanks again, R112.
Don't worry about it. I enjoyed reading more about it, but it's not that important.
I guess I take his couch surfing as a personal choice. He always had a home with his family if he wanted. And to me being homeless is living on the street for longer then two weeks.
I must admit that he is a really good actor. I don't know why people have mean things to say about that. There is nothing wrong with his acting. I think he just needs to make better decisions on what type of actors he shares the screen with. I don't hate Blake Lively, but I wouldn't have shared a movie with her. Just saying...
I can't stand Blake Lively, she gets all the hot men.
R10 Terrible movie but Jesus Christ, the idea of banging both Kitsch and Johnson makes me cry.
R114, the film was helmed by Oliver Stone, starred Salma Hayek and Benicio Del Toro and he was originally cast against Jennifer Lawrence. On paper, it must have looked like an amazing opportunity. By the time Lawrence dropped out (for The Hunger Games, I think) and they replaced her with Blake Lively, who beat out Olivia Wilde and Britt Robertson, among others, for the role, I'm sure it was too late for Taylor and Aaron to drop out. I've heard from more than one source that neither of them could stand her.
I actually think he's very funny as Tim Riggins and have wondered if he shouldn't be aiming for some romantic comedy or buddy movies a la Channing Tatum, instead of the heavy drama and action he appears to prefer. It's not that he's terrible in those. They just don't play to his real strengths.
Yeah, I heard that they even had to change Blake's role because Oliver found her to be more hippie like. I would have picked Olivia Wilde over Blake.
I totally agree that he should try a romantic movie! He was awesome in FNL. I really like him with Jesse Plemons. That guy is so funny.
I find it odd though how you never see any pics of TK with women or girlfriend, etc. It's okay to be private but I mean where do they go out on dates? Must stay in alot...which I guess would mean he has never found the right person.
I agree, Taylor Kitsch is more of a romantic lead. Aaron is gorgeous, but looks different in every role..especially with his crazy hair. And, his body in Kick Ass is gorgeous.
I thought Selma Hayek was the best part of Savages.
I thought Savages was a very entertaining film, but the ending was a disappointment. I agree that Lively was wrong in this movie, and her voice in the narration sounds like a Barbie doll. I really don't care for her acting.
Do you think the 2 best friends were gay in Savages?
I always wondered about that too. Did they just share Blake or did they all share each other?
I agree, I did not like the ending. Kinda silly. And I never quite got the very end where Blake is talking and saying they all went their seperate ways, yet it looks like their all together by the fire at the very end.
I think TK would do well in a movie like "Country Strong" or something.
Well, Aaron tells Taylor..."Did I ever tell you that I love you?" Taylor says, "Yeah, this morning"
Hayek also makes a point that Aaron and Taylor love each other more than Lively. Otherwise, they wouldn't share her.
It would have been nice if they would have shown their "love" for each other then!! I certainly would not have complained!
Didnt see Savages yet (it's on the dvr) but do they ever have a threesome?
They do. But unless there are a few versions of those scenes, you don't really see much.
[quote]He's hot, hot, hot.
I would assume you're not talking about his career.
What happened with him and Minka? I thought that was a rumor but I'd love to know what really happened.
His fling with Minka Kelly was a long time ago and didn't last very long, less than a year. From what little I have heard from people who know both of them, he liked her more than she liked him, but they pushed each other's buttons in a major way and fought constantly. Ultimately she didn't want to commit to him and broke things off. It took him a while to get over it, while she moved on immediately to John Mayer.
And R119, I think you don't see him out at all very often because he purposely keeps a low profile and doesn't live or own property in LA. When he's not working, he splits his time between a semi rural suburb of Austin and a small Vancouver suburb. Not a lot of paparazzi hanging out in either of those places.
[R130] Isn't is odd how fans don't even catch photos of him with a girl. Is he paranoid? I would hate to be the secret girl all the time.
Yeah, from what I've been told, the last Secret Girl totally hated it.
[R132] May I ask how you know so much about TK? Are you an actor too?
Thing is, how do you come out without implicating those beards and the sham of Hollywood?
In the UK there was this guy called Joe McElderry who won X Factor. He was asked very early on, as it was clearly evident, was he gay. He said he was straight. Then of course later on comes out, but saying something like he suddenly realised his sexuality. He was like 19.
I think the only way to get around it would be just say something like "those girls were just friends, the tabloids jumped to conclusions looking for a story". Or maybe "I was lying to myself and I realised I had to be honest that I'm attracted to men".
Not a big problem for Lautner who wasn't heavily bearded, but others. Half the time the tabloids do make shit up and the stars never say anything about these fauxmances.
Shit wrong thread.
R134, how did Taylor Lautner get into this?
R133, no, I'm a nobody. A friend of mine works in the entertainment industry and is friends with his publicist, who is also Hugh Jackman's publicist and a few other people's. My friend loves TK, so he's the one she asks her the most about.
 Oh, that's cool.
So any more tidbits for us? I'm curious to know if TK built a mansion in Austin or just a regular size house?
I've never seen his house or any pictures of it, but it's my understanding from another friend (this one in Austin) that it's neither a massive mansion nor a regular house - just a big nice house. My Austin friend says that while it's in what's considered to be a fairly posh Austin suburb, he has a few acres of land, so the house itself is in somewhat the middle of nowhere in a heavily wooded area and tough to get to. I'm not familiar with the Austin area, but I know that the south is very spread out like that. Maybe someone from the area can chime in with more details!
A tidbit I left out is that he's a huge motorcycle enthusiast, owns several, and likes to tinker with them. He reportedly prefers them to cars.
 Thanks for sharing!
Saw the trailed for "Lone Survivor" yesterday...it looks really good!
r136 I must have saw the Taylor and wrote in the wrong thread.
