MAY MOVIE PREVIEW
It's the calm before the (summer) storm this weekend with most studios opting to let Tyler Perry's drag act, and Robert & Reese's circus romance (my review) battle it out again for a second weekend. So let's look ahead to May. Here's nine guys to crush on for the first month of Summer Movie Season. Perhaps this will wash out that horrible Pettyfer aftertaste.

Orlandosympathy MARK RUFFALO and ORLANDO BLOOM
For those who like their men scruffy and green (in both senses of the word) or scruffy and formerly elfen.
Ruffalo is not onscreen much this summer but he is filming The Avengers even as you read this. He's playing the Hulk. They just started filming so he'll be in the news as set reports come in. They've already released one incredibly coy promotional photo.

In addition to Hulking out away from our prying eyes, the Ruffster costars in his own directorial debut SYMPATHY FOR DELICIOUS which features Orlando Bloom (left, ditching the clean cut pretty boy look for the rock n' roll dishevelled) and two incomparable actresses, Juliette Lewis and Laura Linney. It opens tomorrow. Ruffalo wanted to become a director so badly he threatened to quit acting to do it. Then that mean and green franchise offer came in and he was an actor again. I was just thinking about the last hulk, Edward Norton, this morning. (He was Ryan Gosling before Ryan Gosling wasn't he? The new acting god everyone wanted to be... for a brief few years at least.)

JOHNNY DEPP and/or THOMAS MCDONNELL
For those who like Johnny Depp or have a thing for twins or brothers.

The resemblance is uncanny. You can bet that Hollywood has noticed already. They're always grooming replacements. Even for the once-in-a-lifetime stars like Johnny...

Burlesqu

Earlier this month we sent Towleroad's Josh Koll to talk with the cast of Burlesque — Cher, Stanley Tucci, Christina Aguilera, and Cam Gigandet.
