Happy Endings is a wonderful little show filled to the brim with pop culture references, bad hair, and Bar mitzvah dancers. Its abrupt cancellation in May 2013 temporarily robbed us of a reason to live simply because of the fact that there’ll be no new jokes from Max and Penny or traditional Serbian folk dance performances by the Kerkovich sisters. But fear not! The series has since been resurrected right here on VH1, and its creators and stars are all over TV and film in 2014.
We’re still fanning ourselves after seeing Town & Country’s photo spread of Scott Eastwood, son of Clint, posing as a ’60s screen star. Strange that the actor is 27 years old and this is the first time we’re realizing how incredibly sexy he is (and god, we’re not even that into Clint Eastwood, except as a 2012 election meme). And now, in case you weren’t feeling like enough of a leering gold-digger, we present to you our 10 favorite super-hot sons of celebrities.
People who know about sports — and all of the news articles — tell us that it’s a big deal to see brothers Jim and John Harbaugh face off against each other in Sunday’s Super Bowl as head coaches of the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens, respectively. That got us thinking about all the other bros who channeled their sibling rivalry into world-famous careers. (Strange, most siblings I know, myself and my sis included, almost deliberately chose radically different paths in life.) Of course, we’ve had the Baldwins, the Weinsteins, the Coens, the Hansons and the Jonases for a while. But who are the most influential brothers in entertainment right now?
Well, there are still the Wayans brothers, who haven’t made a movie together for a couple of years but whose influence is now being felt in the form of their nephews, via Happy Endings and Second Generation Wayans. James Franco has been sharing his knack for balancing mainstream flicks with weird indie projects with li’l bro Dave (who can be seen in this weekend’s Warm Bodies). Then there are the Hemsworths, whose adorable Australian mugs and breathtaking bodies have landed them the hottest movie franchises around. Donnie Wahlberg is dividing his time between the small screen (Blue Bloods) and the stage (with the NKOTB summer tour), while his younger brother Mark does double duty as a movie star and a hugely successful TV and movie producer (especially now that Entourage is heading to theaters). But for our money, the biggest bro team around at the moment is Ben and Casey Affleck. Sure, that’s mostly due to Ben’s amazing, award-winning run as the director and star of Oscar favorite Argo, but all that buzz is helping Casey’s career too. Casey’s turn in the outlaw flick Ain’t Them Bodies Saints just got plenty of good buzz at Sundance last week, and we bet you didn’t know he’s got a movie in the running at the Oscars too: He voiced the character of Mitch in last year’s Paranorman.
