Michael Shannon

He's kind of like Jeremy Renner.

Depending on the way he is photographed he can be incredibly sexy or incredibly fugly.

How is that?

He's the epitome of joli-laid, just how I like them.

OP, I see what you mean. Those two pictures clearly show both sides of him...

He strikes me as the "doesn't photograph well" type. I thinks he's attractive.

He has one acting mode, insane. And it gets boring really quickly.

Met him in person. Extremely tall, gangly even. Bad skin. Incredibly not hot in person. Like, at ALL.

I thought he was great in The Runaways and Take Shelter.

I knew he reminded me of someone.

He probably would make be a great top in a pinch!

"He has one acting mode, insane."

Not true at all. He's very different in the recent film MUD, and the stage work of his I've seen shows a lot of range (and he can be very funny).

Unfortunately, he has tended to be typecast as crazy people in film and TV.

He's much, much more talented than Jeremy Renner. Renner could never carry a film like TAKE SHELTER or THE ICEMAN. Renner's performance in the lead of THE BOURNE LEGACY was no more than serviceable - he's not leading man material like Matt Damon.

Renner is best in supporting roles. He's like the new Michael J. Pollard.

^I was talking in terms of looks, not talent.

R4 thru R9 are playing with my head! Keep going back and forth between :::swoon::: and "GAH!"

He's an excellent actor. I finally saw the Superman movie. Man Of Steel was very badly cast aside from Cavill and Shannon. Cavill was serviceable with the terrible writing and scenes he was given. Yeah - turn an 18 wheeler into a pretzel - that'll protect your cover. Amy Adams had none of the pluck, slight egomania, recklessness and earthiness of Lois Lane. It was such a bad movie, terribly edited, paced, written. I often had very little idea what was going on. They rushed through the Krypton scenes like the movie was on fast forward. The fact they had Superman murder his opponent instead of intelligently cooking up a solution was offensive. The 9/11 visual references - people falling out of buildings like the WTC - was needless and sick. Shannon actually brought some humanity to his role. Terrence Stamp was more regal and scary, though.

He reminds me of Giovanni Ribbedface, kind of hot at times, but others - uggo.

by Anonymousreply 2006/21/2013

Perfect summation r19 - Shannon's performance was the only redeeming part of the film, IMO.

He is not mmediately sexy to me, but he was very funny AND sexy in his MUD cameo.

by Anonymousreply 2106/21/2013

I haven't seen Superman, but it's sounding more and more like Shannon was pretty good in it... and Cavill just fit the suit ala Johnny Bravo.

by Anonymousreply 2206/21/2013

I think they were both pretty average in Superman. As an actor I would take Renner any day.

by Anonymousreply 2306/23/2013

If this was a just universe, he would have been A List *and* an Oscar winner for "Take Shelter". That film had top notch acting from him, Chastain down to the extras in the Thanksgiving dinner scene. Wow.

Here's a full frontal nude pic by Richard Avedon, when he was starring in the Off-Broadway version of Tracy Letts' play BUG. (WARNING: His co-star Shannon Cochran is also nude.)

"The fact they had Superman murder his opponent instead of intelligently cooking up a solution was offensive."

This is getting a lot of backlash in various parts of the Internet (the Atlantic, Entertainment Weekly, New York Magazine, etcetera).

He has tinymeat in R25's pic. He also has succulent puffy nips, though... That always trumps dick size.
