Esteban Powell And Adventures At The Library by Christa Maurice

I am finally getting my Esteban Powell fix. It’s taken me 2 weeks.

This is my problem. I get hung up on these C list actors that I then have a devil of a time tracking down. I found Esteban Powell originally through Hysteria: the Def Leppard Story. (Okay, my watching choices might have something to do with my hang up on C list actors.) Regardless, I thought he was adorable and a good actor.

Tracking down a C list actor requires tenacity and patience. First, I had to go to IMDB.com to find out what he’s been in other than Hysteria. He was in a movie called Bunny Whipped which looks hysterical (man becomes superhero after his girlfriend breaks up with him.) I’m putting off ordering it from Half.com until I figure out if it’s love or just infatuation. Esteban (because we’re on a first name basis now, or I am. If he wants to be, I’m game.) was also in a move called Paper Cutabout an indy newspaper and a love triangle which also looks good. Since the library didn’t have either of them, I had to resort to episodes in which he guest starred.

The first thing I tried was a CSI episode titled Abra-Cadaver. After 2 year in Korea, you’d think I’d have seen every episode, but somehow I missed that one. I requested it from the library, very careful to get the right disk from the season I needed. (Note the word choice.) It came in. I was happy. I brought it home, popped it open and-

The wrong disk was in the box. Not only was it the wrong disk, but it happened to be full of episodes I had seen repeatedly while overseas. I was okay with that. It’s the library. These things happen. So I took it back and made another stab. The second time I requested it, I got the right disk from the wrong season.

Third time was a charm. I got my hands on the correct disk. Too bad Esteban was only on camera for about 3 seconds.

Now it’s time to start hunting for Mr. Monk and the Big Game. I’ve already requested it from the library once and gotten the wrong disk so I figure I have 2 more requests before I get it. By then The Cleaner might be in and I can just get the first season. He had a regular spot there. Or I may have broken down and bought Bunny Whipped.

Or maybe I’ll just watch Hysteria again.

OMG Charlotte, I keep finding the most nutso things in common with you. I’m hung up on B/C list actors. Umm… strangely enough, I call them that, but they’ve all been in blockbusters. Delroy Lindo (not C list per se but never billed as a star this guy’s been in tons of blockbusters) and Ben Foster (loved him in 30 days of night)…

Hey what about Japan?

thatguy,

I had seen some clips and I’m intrigued, but I try not to start watching a show until it’s well into its second season. If I get into a show in the first season, it gets cancelled.
