Paul Telfer - sword & sandals hottie

Okay, so I know I should be studying. But I took a break and caught bits of the made for TV Hercules movie on the Sci fi channel. Apparently it first aired in 2005. It was bad. Why is it that all these Greek myth movies are just totally cheesy? Couldn't they make at least one that isn't? Bad special effects, bad script, etc.   Sean Astin played Linus, Hercules' sidekick in an apparent reprise of his Samwise role. He did okay, but it was hard to redeem this flic. HOWEVER the actor who played Hercules, Paul Telfer, was serious eye-candy and I enjoyed just watching him (ooh that chest -  fangrrl squee). So, I got on the net and poked around a bit and found that he played Hephaistion ( double squee) in a movie called "Young Alexander the Great" which I've never heard of.  Anyone out there seen it?  Is it worthwhile?  The actors are seriously cute but I gather from the family rating that there isn't even a hint of . . . you know.   So, I'm sharing my pics.  Too bad I couldn't find one without the shirt.  Serious lack there.     Oh wait - I did find some. See below.

Sean (Linus) with the Harpy head.  And they named him Linus?  Where's the blanket.

Cute huh?  They took great care to show us that both of them liked girls.

Paul Telfer as Heph on left  and Sam Hueghan as Alexander on right.  Cute pair.

What did the ancients say about the only thing that ever defeated Alexander were Hephaistion's thighs?

Okay, back to work, elfscribe!   Hope you enjoyed that.

Hey Andolinn, turn about is fair play for all the pics you've shared. Btw, I found a couple even better, including without the shirt.

*purrs* That's what sisters are for! To share the eyecandy!

And yes, I'm dead now! Too, too pretty.

As long as you're getting a lot done... *snort*

Thanks! You made my day. Never heard the movie "The Young Alexander"--think I'll have to track it down even if it is pure crap.

Hi Oshun, it's always nice to share some beauty. I found a couple better pics including without the shirt. Yum! Yeah, apparently Young Alexander came out this year. Where on earth did it show? I never heard of it. Right, we need to get the tracking hounds on it, stat.

My, my, my. Never mind if the movie is crap. We can just turn down the sound and drool. **grin**

Yeah and that's about what you need to do. LOL. But now I have to check out this Alexander flic and hope it isn't too awful. Good swords & sandals flics are very scarce.

OK. I did my homework on Alexander. It isn't due to be released until December 2007 (both UK and US). Nobody can ever accuse me of not being serious about such things.

Bless you! Well, it looks like I'm going to have to check it out. Although my hopes are not high. I hated Oliver Stone's Alexander in pretty much every way. (Except for Bagoas.)

Glad you liked. Hope it helped distract you from the foot pain.

That babyface is Alexander? In an embryonic stage maybe!

And OMG Sean Astin's haircut. I think he's actually wearing the blanket, by the way. :)

Well, it is supposed to be the YOUNG Alexander. I will be curious to see how they treat them. I'm sure lots of swordsplay, hijinx, and derring-do, and a hardy clap on the arm. Just like the oldtime movies before we all were aware of the g word. ;-) Too bad. (There are other pics of this Alexander in which he looks pretty good.)

And right, Sean's haircut is awful. Good to hear from you sweets.
