Brendan Fraser Hotness in Inkheart

I’m not ashamed to admit that I love having a few good reasons to go see a new movie with my children – not only do I love it when they take great books and make it into movies, with fantastic special effects, brimming with action and suspense, I love it when they cast hot great actors in it as well.

Not ashamed at all.

Take for instance, Iron Man. The kids were ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the action, effects and overall cool-ness. Me? I was just happily drooling over Robert Downey Jr‘s buff bod.

Can I get a witness?


The newest hot-actor-filled kids movie, soon to be released January 23rd, is Inkheart, starring Brendan Fraser, aka Hottie-McHots-A-Lot.

Could they have made him look anymore amazingly hot in their ads? Seriously?

(And how many more times can I say the word “hot” in this post?)

Yeah. You’re pickin’ up what I’m puttin’ down.

Hot. SOOO smokin’ hot. (I guess I can say it a lot more, huh) Lost all train of thought, though. Oh yeah! Movie… preview… got it.

Seemingly chock-filled with adventure, this is one I am certain the entire family will enjoy (especially mommy, hehehe *cough*).

The Plot
When Mo ‘Silvertongue’ Folchart (Brendan Fraser) reads aloud from books, he has the ability to make the characters come out of the book, into real life. Mo discovered his power when his daughter Meggie (Eliza Bennett) was just a baby. Mo read aloud from the book Inkheart, which caused several of the book’s wicked characters, including Capricorn (Andy Serkis), to literally come to life. But while he read them out of the book, he accidentally read Meggie’s mother, Teresa (Sienna Guillory) into the story. For years he has searched for another copy of Inkheart, in hopes of freeing her, but as the book is very rare, he has had no success.

In the movie, Meggie has now grown and is 12 years old, but knows nothing of her father’s bizarre and powerful talent, until Capricorn, seeking to twist Mo’s powerful talent to his own dark means, tries to lure Mo into a trap using Meggie. Meggie discovers Capricorn’s ruthless plan while learning she, too, can bring characters she reads to life, and sets out to find a copy of Inkheart to save her father and return her mother.

Brendan Fraser in all his hot-Mummy action.

What was I saying again? Oh yeah, Inkheart. Got it.

Fun fact:
Brendan Fraser was Cornelia Funke‘s personal choice for the role of Silvertongue. She even dedicated the second novel of the trilogy to him and sent him a signed copy. The producers originally wanted a bigger Hollywood star but on the insistence of Funke they gave in and accepted him in the role.

Nice job, Cornelia! I guess I’m not the only one to appreciate the hotness talent.

Bigger Hollywood star?!? Helloooo… we’re talkin’ about Hottie McHots-A-Lot here?! Seriously, big-time producer people, what’s up with that?

Inkheart debuts January 23rd. Starring Brendan Fraser, Paul Bettany, Helen Mirren, Jim Broadbent, Andy Serkis, and Eliza Bennett.

So mark your calendars for the hottie Inkheart premiere, and tell me how you like him it if you see it.

By the way, for those who were keeping track, I said it 13 times. (14 if you count the title)
