Band of Hotties: Where are they now? Part III

11 Mar

Scroll down to the end to see the real men of Easy Company

“They were brave men. They were complex men. And, thanks to Spanks’s crack casting agents, they were also hot men. (Well, except David Schwimmer.)”

– Television Without Pity

Back in 2001, mere days before the tragic events at the World Trade Centre, a mammoth 10-part miniseries produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg (a.k.a Spanks) premiered on HBO. With The Pacific set to premiere this weekend, the ladies of Singlarity thought it would be a good time to catch up with some of the cast of Band of Brothers. Some have gone on to star in feature films, television shows and other miniseries, some have popped up in odd places, while others have been to one too many exorcisms. WTF, Rick? So this is part III in the series in which we catch up with your beloved band of hotties.

I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell.

Prof. Northman of the Northman Treatment Centre

"This entire blog is pretty damning evidence."

Unfortunately, my employee health insurance does not cover Skarsgard Syndrome or True Blood withdrawal, so all the expenses I have incurred while at the Northman Treatment Centre (NTC) are out-of-pocket expenses. Well, I guess that’s what credit cards and the Bank of Mom are for.

The past few weeks, my treatment has focused primarily on deflection or distraction. Prof. Northman thinks that if I were to (get a life and) focus on other interests, I might be able to survive this freakin’ hiatus. So I’ve been doing that by re-watching Band of Brothers – a former obsession of mine. I’ve also been watching trailers and reading everything I can about The Pacific, which premiers next month on HBO. It’s been pretty effin’ ninja reliving my excitement over the men of Easy company.  I think I’ve been making great strides over the past week, but Alexander Skarsgard really doesn’t want me to get better. He certainly didn’t help my cause by showing up at the premiere of The Pacific.

"There is always going to be temptation!"

I consider his appearance nothing less than sabotage! Did I mention that I suffer from paranoia? Next week promises to be pretty intense, with a busload of new patients arriving at the NTC. Right now, the group therapy sessions are pretty crowded. Still, there’s no better place to go for treatment.

"There is only treatment. There is no cure."

Yes, Rick Warden (far left) really is that short.

Back in 2001, mere days before the tragic events at the World Trade Centre, a mammoth 10-part miniseries produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg (a.k.a Spanks) premiered on HBO. With The Pacific set to premiere this March, the ladies of Singlarity thought it would be a good time to catch up with some of the cast of Band of Brothers. Some have gone on to work with award-winning directors, some have popped up in random commercials, while others have faded into obscurity or have gone behind the scenes to voice high-pitched, panty-waisted prepubescent cartoon characters. WTF, Scott? So this is part II in the series in which we catch up with your beloved band of hotties.
