Who's Our Favorite Mark?

It's Friday again, and I'm grateful to have something fun to distract me from politics and non-sleeping babies and the ridiculous lack of ice cream in my life. I hope you're still having fun voting!

Last week, we voted for our favorite Brad, and I wonder how the results might have been different had we voted a couple of weeks ago, i.e. before divorce drama. Because, y'all. Brad Pitt didn't just lose... he got fewer votes than Bradley Whitford! Shocking. But we all know what that means.

Our favorite Brad is Bradley Cooper!

Bradley Cooper ran away with the votes like a sexy blond bad out of hell. I'm pretty sure a lot of the love came from Alias fans, but I was surprised at the overwhelming Cooper support... or CoopSup as they call it. (They don't call it that. That's stupid. I'm tired.)

Now it's time to vote for our favorite Mark. It's a small pool but an important one. Go forth and vote. Make your mark. (Still tired.)


Mark Hamill

Where We've Seen Him

Star Wars and such... the "such" being only Star Wars. Has anybody had a more popular but singular career? I mean, he's not Mark Hamill; he's Luke Skywalker and no one else.

Why We Love Him

I continue to be surprised that every single person every single week gets a decent handful of votes, so I can't not list anyone. That being said, I'm guessing Hamill is the favorite Mark of only Star Wars fanatics whom I love dearly. Vote your heart, Luke.


Mark Harmon

Where We've Seen Him

St. Elsewhere, Chicago Hope, and NCIS are the big ones, plus a couple of arcs on The West Wing and Moonlighting

Why We Love Him

He's not the guy I grew up with, but if he's yours, you had it goooood. The guy is a fox and has aged tremendously well. He also has a few "good human" traits: he played college football (team spirit and all that), he worked as a carpenter before he became an actor (rugged), and he once saved two teenage boys from a burning car (used a sledgehammer to bust the glass and then tried to not tell anybody it was him). Good. Dude.


Mark Ruffalo

Where We've Seen Him

He's The Hulk in the current Avengers franchise, Foxcatcher, Spotlight, The Kids Are All Right, Where the Wild Things Are, Zodiac, and 13 Going on 30.

Why We Love Him

There's something about the regular guy, and Mark Ruffalo plays him perfectly. He's understated and hot, super talented (three Oscar nominations in the last five years), and is an activist with his wife whose name is Sunrise. I mean, come on.


Mark Wahlberg

Where We've Seen Him

On my bedroom wall when I was a middle schooler I mean The Departed, Ted, The Fighter, The Lovely Bones, Date Night, The Italian Job, Boogie Nights, and one of the worst bad movies ever, The Happening.

Why We Love Him

I've always loved him. (Cue Whitney.) His pendulum swing of success is insane. He'll be amazing in something and then just suuuuuck. He might have more Razzies than anyone. I'm not sure if he's talented or just lucky, but whatever he is, he's doing it well hashtag muscles. 


Time to vote!
