Christian Bale and Thomas Dekker, you might want to watch your step in the coming months; the terrible year of John Connors continues. Edward Furlong, who played Connor in Terminator 2, was arrested early this morning at LAX for felony domestic violence after grabbing his girlfriend’s arm in an argument, leaving visible marks, TMZ reports. At press time, the 35-year-old actor remained in jail with bail set at $50,000. Earlier this year, Furlong, who has struggled with addiction to cocaine and heroin for years, claimed he was robbed by a man in L.A.’s Skid Row. In 2011, he was jailed for violating a restraining order that kept him away from his estranged wife.
And just to recap what’s happened to the other John Connors of the world. In May, Terminator 3′s Nick Stahl checked himself into rehab after an episode in which his wife reported him missing and he was spotted hanging around Skid Row too. He then went missing again, but eventually returned home and was attending AA meetings. Read more…
Oh, Ian Somerhalder, you’ve been through a lot. First there was that plane crash that you survived with a bunch of other crazy people, only to die a horrible death falling from a crashed plane in a tree (R.I.P., Boone!). Then you and your brother fell in love with the same woman, were killed by angry vampire hunters, and then turned into vampires against your will, only to fall in love with the same woman again. No rest for the incredibly good-looking! Let us console you with a little prize: You are this week’s Hotness!!!
With a final tally of 9,502 votes for the Vampire Diaries star to 2,656 for The Secret Circle’s Thomas Dekker, it doesn’t seem like the race was too close. But here’s an interesting bit of trivia for the TDek supporters out there: The Sarah Connor Chronicles alum won in U.S. votes, with 66 percent of the clicks. Votes for Ian, meanwhile, were coming from ALL OVER THE FREAKING WORLD. We’re talking Kazakhstan, El Salvador, Iceland, Korea, South Africa and basically every place you can think of. Russia and Australia were big participants. So, we’re guessing that once the Chance Harbor witches start finding their way to more international waters, Adam and his lovely eyelashes will be breaking more hearts than just Cassie’s.
So, Secret Circle and Vampire Diaries fans, it’s Thursday. The day you look forward to all week. Tonight, we’ll see what’s going on with that demon bug thingy that crawled into Melissa’s ear (ewewewww!), and what Klaus has in store for Stefan after dragging him back to Mystic Falls. But while you wait, might we suggest voting one (or 100) more times for This Week’s Hotness? Ian Somerhalder and Thomas Dekker are counting on your support before polls close at 9 a.m. tomorrow!
The world would be a whole lot more boring without love triangles. “Dawson’s Creek,” Twilight, Original Flavor “90210,” “Felicity,” Pretty in Pink — the important dramas of our time all hinge on the torturous choice between two loves. And now we are forcing you into the same situation as you must choose between “Secret Circle” man-witch Thomas Dekker and “The Vampire Diaries” bad-boy-with-a-heart-of-gold Ian Somerhalder to determine who will be TheFABlife’s inaugural Hotness of the Week.
This is a very important decision, folks. You will have to hunker down and closely examine the galleries of these soulful-eyed CW babes below before casting your vote again and again. You will have to encourage your fellow Delena fanfic writers and/or your neighborhood coven to get in on the action. The winner will be anointed on Friday.
