Apologies for the Late Skeet

The Lord decreed Sunday as the day of rest. I am now decreeing it the day of Skeet. Well, for this week at least. Sorry for missing Friday, we were, uh… busy. Get over it!!

Dev Patel!

Okay, admittedly this is sort of a weird skeet for me, mostly because this guy kind of reminds me of my brother when he was 18, and sometimes Dev has been seen sporting the infamous “crustache.” I’m willing to overlook that because he was Anwar, a member of the genius ensemble cast of our favorite guilty pleasure teen drama import “Skins,” and because he’s the lead in what I’m told is a really fantastic film, Danny Boyle’s latest and greatest, “Slumdog Millionaire.”

You gotta respect the guy because at such a young age (he’s freakin’ 18!) his resume looks prettaaay prettaaayy good. It may be short, but hey, quality over quantity. And he’s totally making the skinny, awkward teenager thing work for him, and has so far proven to be versatile and talented enough to avoid falling into the Michael Cera trap that may await many lanky young dudes who don’t play their cards right. While he wasn’t my favorite castmember from Skins, he had one of the most complex and interesting roles, that of Anwar Kharral, a British teenager raised in a traditional Muslim household by Pakistani parents, who is torn between modern high school society and peer pressure and his deeply ingrained, religious beliefs.  So far he seems to be making the biggest moves with the fame and recognition that show earned him, winning “Most Promising Newcomer” at the British Independent Film Awards. 

Not to mention, he’s totally cute and has a hot British accent. Skeeeeet.
