Last week, le bf and I watched RoboCop, and surprisingly, it was pretty good! It was entertaining, with a not-too-cray-cray plot, and most importantly, with Joel Kinnaman as RoboCop. If you’re not familiar with this tall and hunky Swede, perhaps the name Stephen Holder might ring a bell. As in Detective Holder of The Killing series? I don’t know about you, but I didn’t even realize that the two were the same person until I saw the credits, because in The Killing, Kinnaman plays Holder as this sharp-tongued scruffy man-child, while in RoboCop he’s all heat and brawn, and he doesn’t even look like the same person! And while I still found The Killing’s dirty unshaven Kinnaman hot, when he wears a suit, well…the man cleans up quite nicely.
Most recently, Kinnaman made headlines because of his split from longtime girlfriend Olivia Munn, and while I do think that the two made quite a hot couple, I wouldn’t mind a little Holder/Linden action especially since season 4 filming just wrapped (even if Mireille Enos is already taken).
For the rest of the week, I’ll be catching up on some older Joel Kinnaman films, both to feed my obsession and…well, to gawk at how good-looking he is. Don’t judge!
