Travis, No.

So, as annoying as my husband can be, he can also make himself very useful.  All that attention he pays to 'my boys' in my shows sometimes pays off, despite all the teasing and harassing I get at times.

He says to me the other night, "Have you seen the previews for your boy's new movie?"

I said, "You mean 'show'?"  Because my other (hah) boy, Warren Kole, has a new TV show coming this fall called Shades of Blue.  But no, he meant Michael Ealy.  Color me intrigued.

"He's really creepy in this, you need to watch it."  My husband, the man has a way with words. <sarcasm>

Curious and concerned, I looked up the trailer for The Perfect Man this morning.


I was not expecting that at the end, even though my husband told me about it.  But damn, does this look nice and intense or what?  I really need to watch this last season of The Following, because I know he plays an über bad guy in that.  For the most part, all I've seen him in have been things like About Last Night and Barbershop, funny movies.  Although Unconditional was a serious (and seriously sad) movie, it wasn't anything like this.  I never knew I needed psychotic, obsessive Michael Ealy until now.

Psychotic serial killer Warren Kole, yes.  He does that role so well.  But Michael?  GIMME.

Anyway... my husband just called awhile ago on his way home from work and I told him I'd watched the trailer.  Immediately after me saying, "I NEED THIS," he says, "You only want to watch it because you think he's hot."  I'm like NO I DON'T but whatever (it's one point he refuses to believe me on - I adore Michael, but I don't find him very attractive).  HOW do I always manage to have these conversations while at work?  My co-workers must think I have a harem of men somewhere.  Don't I wish.

And now I'm having serial killer Travis Marks thoughts and Dorian gone to the dark side plot bunnies.  Aaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnddddddddddddd...I have the urge to watch Underworld: Awakening because, admit it, he looked good in that leather trench.

Update: while on Amazon buying books for my daughter's summer reading assignments, I bought a used copy of Underworld: Awakening because I need help.

Wow, Travis is super creepy. XD Who knew? Oh, gosh, this could make for some seriously dark Common Law fics. I loved the end of the trailer where he was being a creeper under the lady's bed. Wow!

He was in Underworld??? Ugh, I'm so totally behind. I didn't even realize there were more than two Underworld films. XD Well, now I have some catching up to do, don't I? :D

Right? I love it when these sweet faced, silly boys pull out their dark sides. And I agree. Considering both Michael (Travis) and Wes (Warren Kole) have been on The Following, either one could be the bad guy. Although, after seeing this trailer, I can see Travis stalking Wes for whatever reason.

He was in the third! You and me both - I only know this because I came into the living room one day and found my husband watching it. I was like wait - I know that face! I need to watch it now.

First, the husband. That man is a total enabler - even with his few words ;) But just the fact he seemed giddy had to put you on high alert, right? LOL. I'd be wary, too - I just hate to see my boys in a situation/show/movie I don't think they should be in, says Me.

Oooh, yes, very intense. My only problem with this trailer is that I don't think I even have to see the freaking movie now! Well, admittedly, I'd see it for hot Michael, of course. (that was news to me about not finding him that attractive - I've set up your optometrist appointment for the morning of the 9th. Be there promptly with your current prescription in hand :)

The under the bed thing is just a hot button we always carry even from childhood I think, so well played, Michael. Well played ....

He absolutely is. And then he teases ME when I get excited about things. Hah - I totally get where you're coming from, but I love seeing people in roles you wouldn't expect them to be in, too.

You know, that's how it seems to be for like 98.7% of movies nowadays. All the best parts are in the trailer! But, in this case, I want to see how he escalates and goes from being the perfect man to being Señor Psychopath. (Wait... we've had this discussion... do you not remember the fireman photo and the talk of his abs??? And is Dr. Mitchell coming to that appointment along with Dr. Marks, because I'm so there.)

Right? My cat freaks me out on a nightly basis because I'll come out of the bathroom and he's stalking the foot of my bed. But then, Alfie's a fraidy cat supreme, so who knows what he's seen. :)

ok. why didn't i know any of this?

Like.. Warren has a new show?! When and where?! Oh my Michael is good in TF but I haven't seen it all. Uh.

LOL i love your serial killer Travis thought. There is a boss story by watanuki_sama (i worship her) about Wesley being an assassin! You gotta read if you haven't already! I would love more in that family so killer Travis would be perfection!

Actually anymore CL fic would be greatness.

You know, if it wasn't for my husband, I wouldn't know either!

Warren's new show is called Shades of Blue and will be on NBC it seems. Hah - I haven't seen any of TF this last season. I'm going to have to wait on Netflix for that one. I've heard Michael's been pretty creepy though.

YES. Because they always say those serial killers are attractive, charming men... and he totally fits that profile. OH that sounds interesting. Do you know the title offhand? Hmm... don't know if I can pull that off, but I'm willing to try. :D

Hah. That last bit I can totally work with . :)

Thank you!

Aw, hopefully it'll be good then!

Also, I saw yesterday afternoon that Michael will be on season 2 of Secrets and Lies. I'd never even heard of the show, but it sounds like it'll be interesting.
