Sebastian Stan in "Picnic"

I want to go there.

Saw it tonite. Yes he is ripped and totally hot. But the show is a snore unfortunately. Very dated and dull. The film is much better, even though Bill Holden is too old to play Hal.

The guy in the white shirt with the little squares is cuter....I get it! symbolism!! He plays the square, right? What's his name?

The guy who played Alan, the college boy, was also in "Black Swan". Pretty cute, but kept his clothes on. I saw this show last week. Ellen Burstyn and Mare Winningham were great, but the rest of the production was like a college production, certainly not Broadway quality. There was no chemistry between the two leads (Hal and Madge), and the Rosemary was bizarre, although she's gotten good notices. Then saw "Forbidden Broadway" which was amazing!

Just shirtless?

No ass?

He's got a great body, no doubt. But nobody looked like that in the 50's. It'd be like putting Amanda Wingfield in Gautier. Makes no sense, but keeps the tourists happy, I guess.

Or am I an asshole for even bringing it up?

How did he get so old so fast? He looks like a bloated Harry Connick Jr.

Born in Europe, I believe. Possibly uncut.

I thought the same thing about Ellen Burstyn's face lift and botox.

If you want to see Sebastian Stan in a movie with a lot of hot guys and a homoerotic subtext, watch "The Covenant" with Steven Strait, Taylor Kitsch & Chace Crawford.

Yeah, the over the top physique is just silly on that play. How would a drifter have developed that physique? The didn't have a bunch of protein shakes and other supplements in the '50s, did they?

It's like when actors playing Stanley Kowalski spend more time in the gym than the rehearsal room.

Nice body, if totally inappropriate.

Steroids. Yuck. Next.

He's good looking and probably the best thing in "Captain America".

R10, that's the problem with the post-Calvin Klein model world of 6-packs we live in today. Every actor is now expected to develop an incredibly muscular physique, even for roles in which it is completely out of place.

Even most athletes don't have bodies that muscular.

Excellent nips, both placement and size-wise.

Why doesn't he show his naked ass? I've done it, so what is he afraid of?

Theater queens... the PICNIC bootleg, shot in December, is out there.

isn't Sebastian fucking ONCE UPON A TIME co-star Jennifer Morrison?

I want to go TO there, OP.

And who in the Fifties wore their jeans down around their shaved pubes?

All it requires for a show to be a success these days is for an actor to show off his hot body?? If this is what my beloved Broadway has come to, I don't want to know.

by Anonymousreply 2002/03/2013

Exactly what R14 said. I could suck on those big pink titties for hours.

That doesn't explain why so many Joshua Logan musicals flopped, especially the musical version of Picnic entitled Hot September

Is body is good but why is his face so fat?

Are his pubes shaved? If so, that's the final straw for me.

Isn't there a line in Picnic where Hal mentions doing a stint as a physique model? It's quite possible for a 1950's guy to have abs like Stan's, but that would've taken months and continuous training to develop. What was Hal doing crunches in the boxcar? What gets though is the low-rise jeans. What was the costumer thinking?

1950's physique model:

There's something about his body that looks odd. Steroids? Looks like he's holding his tummy in

Alert me when pictures of Billy Magnussen's ass are released.

He is TERRIBLE in PICNIC. He can barely speak. And you can tell that he shaves his pubic hair, which NO MAN WOULD DO IN 1953, even though Holden was made to shave his chest hair for the movie. His body is all wrong for what is basically a period piece. The entire production is awful, by the way.

There was a long article in the L.A. Times over the weekend about the woes of casting directors trying to find enough "authentic" faces for period pieces like LINCOLN.

In fact, it's almost impossible to find someone who doesn't have some sort of giveaway in their face or body. Even Daniel Day Lewis has pierced ears.

Soooo... If you have a funny face from your mom's side of the family and a little experience at the Hootin' Holler Playhouse, Hollywood needs you!
