Do you know a KAKE?

It's like Selznick's search for a Scarlett O'Hara, only bigger!!!!

The Finnish producers of the Tom of Finland movie, which held its press conference this week, are searching for a Kake --- Tom of Finland's fantasy man. This role is central to the film. They are seeking a very handsome, sexy, funny, hung man with a good build, 30-40 years old, who is totally an ease sexually. If you know anyone who has the goods this is their big chance to be an IMMORTAL STAR, darlings! Slip into a smart caftan and invite them over for some personal photography to submit!

I can't think of a single actor with the looks, presence and bulk. Not even Marcus Schenkenberg in his prime would have been quite right.

#1: He's extremely handsome, so something must be wrong with your vision or your aesthetic sense.

#2: It's hard to think of a phrase that screams "Mary!" in 2016 more than "plain as punch."

#3: Marcus Schenkenberg does not even come close to looking like Kake; he does not have the right shape of nose.

Real actors are not going to touch this. They can easily recruit a porn star.

This whole concept of a live action Tom of Finland movie was always rather doomed, real life guys don't like Tom of Finland models.

by Anonymousreply 3702/15/2016

The other thing about Tom of Finland's KAKE and his other men: they not only have small broken noses, but they have HUGE chest and biceps. Some of you are proposing these skinnier model-types and they would not do. They have to be really, REALLY built to play KAKE.

I can't believe all you gay men are getting this so wrong. Tom of F's heroes are a very specific type, whether white or black, dark or fair: they all have very big muscles, especially the pectorals; they all have gigantic dicks; and they all have very big nipples.

Frankly, there aren't a lot of guys answering that description, certainly no famous professional actors. In my whole life, I've known just a handful of guys who truly looked like a T of F cartoon, and I've been around for a long while.

Truth to tell, I can't even think of a porn star who suits the type, though there were a few Colt models who did. The one really well-known one is John Pruitt. You can google image him; Jim French took more photos of him than of anyone else.

This thread is hilarious. To imagine that awful lump of sourness, Brad Davis, who had a typical US mid-West chipmunk face, or the semitic looking and blubbery-faced Eliad Cohen as being in any way like Tom (Touko)'s snub-nosed and sunny nordic dream man, really does take some delusion.

I do know someone who would have fit the bill -- 10 years ago. Their nordic face, with its sloe eyes, tipped-up wide snub nose with a slight bump in it, strong jawline, and generous lips is the spitting image of the Tom archetype -- which isn't just "a big strong handsome man". They really do look like the cartoon, and sometimes when they wear a cap you want to burst out laughing the likeness is so striking. AND...they have the requisite open sunny character that he always insisted upon. Touko was always annoyed at Americans who associated hotness with fake smoldering self-obsession.

Well obviously Dolph Lundgren, but I don't think Tom of Finland was about senior citizens.

Daniel Cudmore now that he's not playing Colossus any longer.

by Anonymousreply 6002/15/2016

The Tom face is very very specific in its racial features. Always the short foetalized nose.

For example, Alexander Skarsgård, who doesn't match it, is apparently typed as belonging to the nordic subrace of 'Trønder'. I'm not sure what the name of the sub-race of the Tom-ideal is: you'd have to go on to the anthropological forums to find out. However, the finn athlete in the photo -- Tomi Kokko -- shows it to perfection.

Obviously the Tom of Finland aesthetic is as unattainable in real life as the classic Mattel Barbie Doll ideal. You can't recreate that type of body frame (including the massive dick size) without using special effects or go full on CGI animation.
