    does anyone agree that victor garber has this mystique to him that makes him - well hot?? i know he's old - he's 54 and i am 15, and i have no intentions of any types of dreams or anything cause that' just scary. i mean michael vartan is a different story(he's only 34 - big difference!!). but you know how there are those "hotties" that are really old - like richard gere, harrison ford, peirce bronson, .... well i was thinking about it last night, VG for some reason falls into that category doesn't he???

    anyone - yes or no just say

    He isn't hot, exactly, but he does have something sexy about him, if that can make any sense. And don't forget about George Clooney...he's hot!

    Sorry, can't just say yes or no. Gotta be verbose: Gee, I'm no judge of "hotness" because I don't tend to think in those terms--and didn't even when I was a teen. However, my age is not ridiculously distant from Mr Garber's. The way understand the term "hot" is a more superficial judgement based on things like appearance, presence, voice, etc. And I just don't respond to that. I tend to respond to the character and what the actor brings to the character. The character must have certain qualities that I respond to, and the actor must have the nuanced performance to bring those qualities out. I guess the actors that I tend to be drawn to (and Victor Garber is one of them) are those capable of breaking my heart--but the role, again, really helps.

    It tend to be after I notice the acting that I come to appreciate the physical attributes of the actor more. For Mr Garber, he's pleasantly tall, he has those nice broad shoulders (it doesn't seem to be all padding), and a very expressive face with a sweet (though with Jack, seldom seen) smile, good jawline, and especially expressive eyes.

    But then, I did try out a series that got some buzz back in the 80s, The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd (in the year of the "dramedy"). I confess I really didn't like the show very much, except for one character--but unfortunately that character, Dennis, didn't show up every week. Had he been a regular, I would have become a Victor Garber fan much earlier and continued to watch the show . . . Maybe this means he's hot?

    I'd say definitely yes -- but probably not in the way meant in the question. He's very handsome, yes, but as my grandmother's generation would say, "Handsome is as handsome does." He's an incredibly talented actor, and from all accounts is a lovely human being. Now that's my definition of "hot." And his age? I just turned 45, so I don't consider a man of 54 "old" at all. :jack1:

    I agree with vartansgrl...I'm her age and I don't think it's at all odd for Jack to be put under the "hot" category. Only in retrospect to his profession though, he does have magnificent features...his height, shoulders, hands, eyes. Not as much in a teenage-hormonal "hot"ness, his work reflects his appearance and I'll say that he isn't a bad looking older man. ;) (y)

    OK I have nothing against VG I mean he is a great actor but I can't really say he is hot it's just me. cuz I have this thing with my friend and when he is on I always start to talk about his face I mean it is round. I don't know it just gets to me. like I have these things with alot of the members of the cast VG head shape LO vainy things on the side of her head JG and her really full lips. like I pay attention to things like that. DOn't know y I just do.

    Hm. You sound very focussed on outer appearance (which I won't get into as it is strictly a matter of personal preference). There's a lot more to sexiness than that.

    I think Victor Garber is sexy. I mean, he's not as hot as Michael or David, but there's something about him. I love him in Sleepless in Seattle, especially the scene where him & Tom Hanks are making fun of Rita Wilson and the movie An Affair to Remember. That scene is hilarious! And his voice -- I think next season, that Jack should go undercover as a singer!!! He was great in Godspell.

    You should hear him as John Wilkes Booth. I've never heard acting expressed in singing quite like that.

    NO I realize that but, I don't know I get really annoyed with little things so (that doesn't annoy me but) I just always have that picture in my head so that really takes up my view I guess.

    You're welcome to your opinion, but that's a bit harsh. I don't come back with my honest opinion when I hear people here endlessly drooling over Vartan/Vaughn's appearance . . .
