Beauty vs Beast: Two Princes

Jason from MNPP here, wishing a happy 44th birthday to the perennially underrated James Marsden today! He's not so underrated that he's ever really gone without work at least (and he's currently riding the zeigeist a bit with the success of Westworld, although I don't know if his moon-eyed compoke Teddy is really what's keeping anybody coming back to that show week after week) but underrated he still somehow seems. That's an impressive impression to give for someone as breathtakingly gorgeous as him! No small feat.

I suppose it's the "Nice Guy Loser" role he's been called on to play time and again - we've watched him watch The Girl go off with the right Mr. Right so many times we've built a stockpile of empathy for him. Speaking of, for today's for "Beauty vs Beast" let's hit up just one of those roles, the 2007 hit film Enchanted (which insanely is turning 10 in November, can you believe it)...

PREVIOUSLY Last week's It Comes at Night contest between Joel Edgerton & Christopher Abbott's survivalist characters was a tight race for a bit but the latter pulled out in front eventually taking 62% of your vote - said Nick T:

"Their scenes together were my favorite parts of the film, their beards my favorite characters."

Really hard to pick between these two- they are both winning characters in their own way

Prince Edward! Marsden is gorgeous, unassuming, and a versatile actor. Dempsey is handsome but I find him bland.

@joe; I agree with you about Marsden- who proves his versatility - in " West World " and "The D Train"

somebody remind me why giselle wasn't into prince edward??

September 18, 2017 | Unregistered Commenterpar

Prince Edward all the way. He's so enthusiastically sincere that, even if the sex was terrible, he'd still find someway to make sure you enjoyed it.

James Marsden is quite possibly one of the most handsome men ever in existence. He's also really funny and a good actor. And he can sing.

So basically what I'm saying is, he's been number one on my 'list' since I saw him in Sugar & Spice and/or Ally McBeal circa 2001 and I will vote for him over pretty much anyone in any versus ever.

Oh yeah, Enchanted. He's pretty good in it.

James Marsden >>>

September 19, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterTyler

Namesake, so Robert it is!

Prince Edward, because who doesn't love charisma and handsomeness and beautiful singing voices all wrapped up in one sweet hunk of man.

September 19, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterNick T

Criss Chros forever!

September 19, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterScott
