Hey 3.5 readers.
Bookshelf Q. Battler here with continuing coverage of my one man campaign to get the Academy to welcome more ugly people into the fold.
I’ve been tweeting my support for various ugly actors who I feel have been passed over for Oscar consideration just because of their looks. I’m not sure they appreciate it. They probably think I’m calling them ugly like its a bad thing. There’s nothing wrong with being ugly. Embrace how God made you, I say.
Anyway, I had a brief Twitter conversation with Geoffrey Arend.
Yeah, when I started thinking of less than handsome thespians to tweet my support for, “That nerdy guy who is married to Christina Hendricks” came to mind but I couldn’t recall his name, even though he’s starred in a lot of stuff and you’d totally recognize him if you saw him.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not knocking the guy in any way whatsoever. He’s been my hero forever on account of the fact that, let me repeat, a) even though he’s a nerd b) he married Christina Hendricks.
Christina Hendricks played super 1960’s hottie Joan on Mad Men for those readers who aren’t hip to the TV scene.
So, let me be clear, no one should take what Geoffrey says below as support for the #OscarsSoPretty movement, which to date, only really consists of me. I don’t want to put words in the guy’s mouth or anything.
He’s a cool dude who was a good sport and traded funny, snarky comments with me. Since this is a blog for nerds, I wanted to ask his advice on how nerds can romance and marry super hot chicks, but I figured that would probably be pressing my luck.
But all you lonely nerds out there, cheer up, for it is possible. Just look to Geoffrey Arend for hope and inspiration.
Much appreciated, Mr. Arend. Readers, you might remember this actor from Devil or Garden State. Currently, you can see him as Matt Mahoney on CBS’ Madam Secretary.
Personally, my favorite role of his was as that stoned kid who ate all the shrooms in Super Troopers.
