From The Bag Of Tricks: Our Generation's Cary Grant (Advance #17)

Cary Grant. Sir Laurence Olivier. Paul Newman. Gregory Peck. Clark Gable.

These Pharaohs of Old Hollywood all possessed unrivaled acting chops, sculpted jawlines and animal magnetism in spades. And we'll never forget them.

Whether a role required a slow burn or a bright conflagration of thespianic ardor, they stood at the ready to transform themselves. And, perhaps, us a little as well.

Many have debated what nuanced player of our generation will one day proudly stand arm and arm with these Titans of the Celluloid.

Will it be Clooney? Depp? Washington? Seymour Hoffman?

I say none of the above.

Let me be the first to lay my hard earned money down on a multi-faceted son of a Michigan auto mechanic, who worked his way through the acting ranks with razor-like aplomb, never losing sight of his dream to be the very best at his craft.

I'm talking about you, Dax Shepard.  Please get up and take a bow.

But isn't Dax Shepard the lesbian DJ who singlehandedly brought down Lindsay Lohan?

It's so difficult to keep up with young hollywood. Just hold me.

They oughta arrest those lesbians.

None of them hold a candle to you, dear. I would have much rather seen Denny Dance in An Affair to Remember. Remake?

who the fuck is that tool?

Dear god, I just Googled the lesbian and with his list of movie credits he could be greater than David Spade.

Denny DelVecchio said...

@Bear: Fear the Dax.

@Vodka: I had a rut-session with Ronson once. Of course, she wasn't present.

@Single: There are many movies that Denny is willing to make with you. His preferred format is Hi-8.

@KAP: Only the finest actor of his generation that got his start on Punk'd

@Loon: A slightly more punchable Spade, which isn't easy.

Denny you are a soothsayer.

There is a band called "Phillip Seymore Hoffman". I went to it, expecting to see him. He was not there. I went to bed sad, and woke up sadder.

Not only is Dax dreamy, he plays by his own rules.

Hollywood is his bitch.

Denny DelVecchio said...

@Dumps: Denny's never gone to bed sad.

@B: I'm Hollywood's bitch.

And here I thought I was the only person that baseball-slides around everywhere. Thanks for the heads up Denny - Dax is now on my "awesome list."
