Token Smokin' Hottie: Alex Dimitriades
Oh yeah okay, let's get this out of the way first: so he was in Deuce Bigalo 2: European Gigalo - I've forgiven him for throwing away his talent on that (I assume) giant piece of shit, why can't you? Because Dimitriades is not just the best piece of Greek-Australian arse out there, as evidenced by the above photo, he is TALENTED.
If you've never seen his tour de force in the highly underrated film Head On then you might not know what I mean but there's a moment in that great saucepot of an Australian movie where he's looking across, sort of smirking really, at another character in a kitchen and in that stupid little ten second moment everything you need to know about him, his character and the entire fucking film is written on his face. Watch it: it's so brilliant you barely even notice halfway into the movie that he's said about four lines of dialogue in total.
But talented or talent-free doesn't really matter when you consider just how genuinely Good Looking he is. In theory I tend to think that I don't go in for conventional good looks in a massive way but if you look up conventional good looks in the dictionary you get a photo of Alex Dimitriades. He's a walking, talking stereotype of Talk, Dark and Handsome. He is not just TD and H he is nice looking. He is not just nice looking but cute. Not just cut but My God Yes he is sex on legs and yes, thanks for asking, I do fancy him like mad.
Yet somehow he also has a weird next door vibe that makes you feel a little bit like he's your older brother's incredibly hot friend. You know: the one who always took time to chit chat to you and gave you a hell of a lot of free pot for no reason at all, making you feel just a smidgen older and smarter than you were and (frustratingly) never took advantage of your youth and and innocent even though you were BEGGING FOR IT. Um, yes, where was I? Alex Dimitriades? Good times.
