George Clooney does NOTHING for me! Bleh. Fail!I am so looking forward to Cata Beta. As long as it is covered in full and awesome detail, I don't care how it gets covered. The only thing more exciting than reading Cata posts will be if I win a Beta key myself (which I did for Wrath, awesome)!!

Hehe, yeah can't say Clooney's ever done much for me either. x)They should have stuck with fan service artwork of Illidan's cheese-grating abs or something. ;)

No, no, wrong venue.

I may be wrong, but it has always seemed to me that males' tastes in women are more homogeneous than females' tastes in males, so trying to find one man with as much general appeal for the ladies as Christina Hendricks had for the men is a difficult task. Perhaps a more scantily clad George Cloony would have done the trick, considering how Christina was dressed in the last queue.

Clooney does nothing for me either. Give me a young Harrison Ford (ie. first three Star Wars or first three Indiana Jones movies), or Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn, or even Justin Hartley (Green Arrow/Oliver Queen on Smallville).

This has been an interesting social experiment, actually.Show us males a picture of a hot chick and brains instantly shut down to murmur, "Boobies!"Show the females a picture of a hot guy and they debate over whether or not there might have been a better choice.I'm not sure what to make of the data, but it sure is interesting. ;)

Mark Harmon, still darn good.

The issue is that Clooney shines in action, not in a still photograph.
Cutaia, very interesting, true!

Please run both the Queue and Ask a Beta Tester separately, Wow.com. I'm trying to avoid as many spoilers as I can about Cata content, and I enjoy reading The Queue. I'm fine with reading about Cata mechanics and class changes, but I want to know absolutely nothing about zones, dungeons, quests, and raids until I install the expansion pack.

I'd have picked Sam Waterston, but I really like Law and Order.

Gamer am I Apr 28th 2010 1:40PM"I may be wrong, but it has always seemed to me that males' tastes in women are more homogeneous than females' tastes in males, so trying to find one man with as much general appeal for the ladies as Christina Hendricks had for the men is a difficult task."I think several men have been named. The difference is, women keep men in a certain time period too. So you'll notice, most of us would say things like Caylnn said: "Give me a young Harrison Ford (ie. first three Star Wars or first three Indiana Jones movies), or Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn, or even Justin Hartley (Green Arrow/Oliver Queen on Smallville)."I could also add in there Sean Connery - circa 1970s - early 2000s. Women tend to go for not just the looks but someone who excites us as a person and we think would make a good relationship, not just a one night stand - whether that's the provider or the bad boy we can "rehabilitate." Clooney is forever stuck in the good looking but man's man role.

@ cutaiaWe only moved straight to the slack-jawed wonder phase because any debate about whether there was a better choice than Christina Hendricks was obviously not necessary. It's not that we're easily distracted... just efficient. :)
I find it somewhat hilarious that most of the ones who would "let him touch them at night" are male readers, whereas a good chunk of the female viewers respond with either "He's alright, but hardly my first choice", or simply "bah!". Although, it's a good picture, I can't help but agree that I expected someone else. (Though I'm not sure who.) @ CaylynnYoung Harrison Ford? Now THAT's a notion I could get behind. @ cutaiaIt is, indeed, an interesting social experiment! Although, I won't claim that the response would be unanimous, I can't help but feel that the mixed reaction of the female populous stems mainly from a difference in opinion of what is "male eye candy" between the male and female population. I have a theory that if it was not Mr. Ziebart choosing who to feature, but rather, one of the sites female writers, you would see a more positive response from the female readership. It is a theory I would very much like to see tested, and not just because I like the idea of the Queue featuring pictures of attractive males. ;)

Yep, when it comes to 'eye candy' I'm totally shallow. ;)Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones is incredibly hot (at least in the first three movies) - part of it is the character and part of it is just Harrison himself. He's still good looking for his age in the latest Indiana Jones, but the fact that he is old enough to be my father is actually very apparent now. ;)Viggo Mortensen is a very odd one for me - he was incredibly hot as Aragorn, until the final movie at the very end where he was in a full beard instead of just scruff (I don't, as a rule, like a lot of facial hair on men - a bit of scruff is fine though). In other movies he's done, or just as 'himself' he's good looking, but just doesn't get me excited the way Aragorn/Strider does.So yeah, this woman at least, tends to find certain men in certain roles to be very attractive, and in other roles, less so. But it's all just eye candy after all. :)

There was an interesting thread on a forum I frequent once; "What actor/actress do you find attractive that isn't conventionally good-looking?" Any time a man put forwards a choice, other men chimed to say "She is TOO conventionally gorgeous!", while the females agreed with each other that certain men were attractive but not handsome, if you follow me.Debate then arose as to whether this is a male/female division of opinion--men revise their view of beauty as needed while women are content to accept exceptions to the rule--or just a fact of "Hollywood 'ugly' man can be less pretty than Hollywood 'ugly' woman."In other news, I think you should have posted a picture of Thrall. Or maybe Optimus Prime. Mmm-mm!
