Kathryn Bigelow Dudes

Hello and happy Tuesday! Apologies for missing last week, but life got busy. Anyway, good news: Fear the Chick Flick has become a regular column at Film Takeout! It’ll be running on Thursdays, and I’m super excited to get to continue the work.

For November, we’re going to be celebrating the B-List Dudes populating various directors’ filmographies. Today we start with Kathryn Bigelow, Oscar winner, kick-ass action director, and B-List dude connoisseur. Fair warning: most of these dudes are from Zero Dark Thirty, because for all its controversy, it is also a veritable smorgasbord of hotties.  Pick your favorites, and I’ll announce the winners at 5:00pm.

Mark Boal
Bigelow movies: The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty
Journalist-turned-screenwriter Boal is both smart and a total babe. I should probably not include him because he has an Oscar, but it’s for screenwriting, so tragically, no one remembers.

Jason Clarke
Bigelow movie: Zero Dark Thirty
I would love to be able to remove Clarke from the B-List, but he has made terrible choices, including the lesser apes movie and the most recent terrible Terminator film.

Mike Colter
Bigelow Movies: Zero Dark Thirty
I am so excited to see him as Luke Cage in the upcoming Marvel Netflix shows.

Frank Grillo
Bigelow movies: Zero Dark Thirty
Frank Grillo is awesome. That is all.

James Le Gros
Bigelow movies: Point Break
He’s in the upcoming reboot as well. Good for you, Roach.

Adrian Pasdar
Bigelow movie: Near Dark
Vampires! Bill Paxton! Bishop from AliensNear Dark had it all.

Glenn Plummer
Bigelow movie: Strange Days
Looking through Glenn Plummer’s filmography is how I learned there’s a sequel to Showgirls. God help us.

Edgar Ramirez
Bigelow movies: Zero Dark Thirty
He is also in the upcoming Point Break, which concerns me because he should be winning Oscars.

Jeremy Renner
Bigelow movies: The Hurt Locker
But he’s not B-list, you say. Well, he should be, because he’s terrible outside of this one single movie. Don’t vote for him.

Peter Sargaard
Bigelow movie: K-19: The Widowmaker
You’d think a movie starring Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson would be awesome. You’d be wrong. Peter Sarsgaard would probably agree.
