I’ll let you in on a little secret—I am not a fan of blogging, and I always drag my feet a bit when I’m due to write a post. But when Under the Covers suggested a “who wore it better?” topic for this post, I did a little happy dance in my chair. This, I can blog about. I do love me some sexy military heroes! So I immediately filled my Netflix queue up with every military movie or TV show I could find and binge-watched them over the weekend, studying their male leads closely. Very closely. *ahem*
What? It’s for science! I swear.
So let’s get to it, huh? Which of the following actors wore their dog tags better?
1.) Jake Gyllenhaal in Jarhead vs Alexander Skarsgard in Generation Kill
All my love to A-Skars, but Gyllenhaal wins this battle for me. He’s shirtless and reading. Be still my writer’s heart.
2.) Bradley Cooper in American Sniper vs. Mark Wahlberg in Lone Survivor
This one is more a battle of “Who wore SEAL better?” And although I didn’t make it to the theaters to see American Sniper, from the pictures alone, I have to say Cooper wins this battle.
3.) Josh Harnett in Black Hawk Down vs. Jeremy Renner in The Hurt Locker
You know, I think Josh Harnett is a beautiful man, but in this showdown Renner beats him, hands down. Harnett is a little too baby-faced to pull off the hardened soldier look.
4.) Philip Winchester in Strike Back vs. Sullivan Stapleton in Strike Back
Hah! Trick Question. They both win. And I’m *dying* for the final season of this show to air this summer.
What do you think? Do you agree with my choices?
Any other actors I missed who wore their dog tags well?
Let me know in the comments!
Ice-cold and unbreakable, Travis Quinn is the HORNET team’s hard-ass. No weaknesses. Except, of course, for the accident that not only destroyed his career as a Navy SEAL, but left terrifying blanks in his memory. But Travis remembers everything about Mara Escareno—the curve of her lips, the feel of her body…and how he walked out on her suddenly six weeks ago. Mara could never resist the dangerously sexy Travis, which is probably how she ended up pregnant and disowned by her family. But before Travis can fully process the news, Mara is kidnapped by his enemies and plunged into the violent, merciless world of human trafficking. They want Travis—and the information locked within his damaged memory—no matter the cost. And now Travis’s enemies have discovered his only weakness…Mara.
