James Badge Dale
About to break out in World War Z, Iron Man 3, and The Lone Ranger. Formerly seen in 24, The Departed, The Pacific, Rubicon, Shame, etc. Father is noted (and openly gay) choreographer Grover Dale. Mother was the fabulous Anita Morris, who died of cancer when he was 15.

Personally, I find him nasty hot...if that's a thing.

He's a very good actor. If he breaks out, he deserves it, and it's not because some publicists decided to shove him down our throats.

I like him a lot. I've seen him in The Pacific, 24, and Rubicon.

A charisma-free zone in "The Pacific".

I hear what you're saying, r4, but it was hard to separate out my overall disappointment with the miniseries from the lackluster performances. (I actually thought Joe Mazello did some of the most believable acting -- yikes!) Anyway, I'm honestly looking forward to seeing if Badge can demonstrate a bit more range than he's shown thus far. Up to this point, he's only really ever played distraught and/or overwrought.
Still nasty hot, though.

I love this guy. Not enough to go to the theatre and see either Iron Man 3 or Lone Ranger, but I'll definitely view the DVD (or whatever).

Particularly so in Shame.
He needs to arrest that male pattern balding stat, though.

Very delectable in Iron Man 3, distractingly so.

R5 I was disappointed in The Pacific at first but having watched it a couple of times, I like it almost as much as Band of Brothers.

I worked on the crew of Rubicon. He was a really nice guy, extremely polite and even-tempered. I don't think, however, he'll ever become a major star. He doesn't have the It Factor. He'll work a lot, regardless.

His mother was Broadway actress Anita Morris and his father is Grover Dale....was that a lavender marriage? Both of them?

All white people start to look the same after a while.

Won't people be put off by his amputated hand?

"Rubicon" was such a bland, boring disappointment.

beautiful, in a wholly different world. . . .

I love Rubicon, r10. For your sake, as well as my own enjoyment of that "thinking person's" show, I'm sorry it was cancelled. Have kept the entire series on my DVR because I like to go back to it.

Is Grover Dale really out?

He had his two front teeth knocked out in an accident in his apartment in London when he was over there shooting World War Z.

"Accident in his London apartment." Dammit, why didn't *I* think of that??

R7, what did he do in "Shame"? Please tell NOW if he engaged in the homosex!
I thought he was hot to death in 24, but he hasn't aged all that well, and until recently he was wearing his hair in *very* odd fashions, particularly in "Rubicon." He looked great in "Iron Man 3," though, and I look forward to seeing him in "World War Z."
Agreed that he's not big-movie-star potential, but I could seem him becoming a Mark Ruffalo type: handsome and talented enough to be cast in a variety of good character roles.

He was exellent in Iron Man 3 (talking about giving a supporting role weight! in an otherwise stupid movie) and also in Shame.

Is he friends with Balthazar Getty?

Very true, r21. He was one of the saving graces in Iron Man 3 -- you really felt danger when he appeared on screen.
