Who's Our Favorite Brad?

Another Friday, another vote! Last week, we voted for our favorite Kevin. It was close. Ish. Not really actually.

Your winner is Kevin Bacon!

Great choice, Lazy Geniuses. The others were good choices, too, but Kevin Bacon is as good as... bacon.

Now it's time to vote for our favorite Brad!


Bradley Cooper

Where We've Seen Him

Alias, Silver Linings Playbook, He's Just Not That Into You, and The Hangover 

Why We Love Him

I think most people are all or nothing with this guy. Either you really love him or you don't get him at all. I've spent most of my life in the latter group, but when I saw him in Alias not to mention how hot he is in The Hangover, I'm starting to change my tune. The Cooper Charm is real. 


Brad Garrett

Where We've Seen Him

Everybody Loves Raymond, we've heard him in Finding Nemo and Ratatoullie, and most recently he played a cynical network executive on This Is Us. 

Why We Love Him

He's has to work hard for his career. Got his start winning Star Search (for real) but had to fight for roles because he's enormously tall and has a super deep voice. He waited tables, did commercials, and followed the typical Hollywood path to success. It's always impressive when somebody sticks it out like that.  


Brad Pitt

Why We Love Him

Well, that's the real question these days, isn't it? Brad Pitt is all over the entertainment news because of his recent split with Angelina Jolie, presumably because of anger issues and violence toward one of their kids. We don't know the facts, but man is it sad however you look at it.  

Where We've Seen Him

A million movies, but my personal favorites are Se7en, Moneyball, Babel, World War Z, and all the Oceans movies. 


Bradley Whitford

Where We've Seen Him

The West Wing mostly. Also Studio 60 (a highly underrated show), Saving Mr. Banks, Transparent, and a couple of short but great arcs on Parks and Rec and Brooklyn Nine Nine

Why We Love Him

I haven't even seen The West Wing yet, and I still love the guy. He's just so likable, plus he's so very talented. I love that a lot of his characters have a chip on their shoulders without being annoying or self-centered. Also he started a charity called Clothes Off Our Back which auctions off celebrity clothing after award shows and red carpet events where all proceeds go to children's charities. Bravo, Brad. 


Voting is over! Bradley Cooper is our favorite.
