Adrien Brody

Following up on my post devoted to Wes Anderson, here's a gallery for Adrien Brody, one of the best actors around.  The Queens native (born April 14, 1973) starred in Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited (2007) and has appeared in a wide variety of excellent films, from Polanski's The Pianist (2002), which made him the youngest Best Actor Oscar-winner in history, to King Kong (2005), Summer of Sam (1999, looking hot in a wifebeater) and The Thin Red Line (1998).  He will appear this summer in the sci-fi films Splice and Predators.

He's actually best-known for embarrassing himself somewhat by planting a big ol' smackeroo on Halle Berry at the Academy Awards.  Oh well, I know I would not have minded in Halle's place.  He also appeared, rocking a 70s style open collar, in a Diet Coke ad a few years back.

Brody's a photogenic one, with a long, angular face, great hair, wonderful intelligent eyes, and a dominant schnozz.  He is not that skinny, though I bet he was quite the beanpole in his youth.  He combines a tall, slim frame with quite a muscular build, and did I mention the man looks hot in a wifebeater?  See for yourself, after the jump.
