DVD-box B&S season 5 - other features: Whathisname uncovered 
28th-Nov-2011 02:01 pm
That guy: Uncovered

Alright. I have to admit it starts good.

Luke Macfarlane (cute): "Okay, what can I say about Gilles?"

Matthew Rhys (even cuter/hotter): "Who?"

Dave Annable: "Oh, the guy is not charming at all. They gotta bring in some guy with 300 abs. Okay, that’s not fair." (He is apparently referring to the movie “300”, that had guys with abssssss, but I Gilles is nowhere near that abs-y)

Now, take a good LOOOOOOONG look at those three faces and remind me WHY on earth, if you have the real deal eye-candy like Matthew Rhys, Luke Macfarlane and Dave Annable and don't forget: Rob Lowe!  --)
Why would you want to add someone like Marini, who is, in comparison, just an artificial sweetener. I just don't get it.

Matthew Rhys: "I wish I had something genuinely bad to say, but he’s that man, who’s, you know, nice to everyone, and ... he makes you sick. He makes me sick to my stomach.” Of course, Matthew is joking…

(I, on the other hand.....…)

I give up…. I throw in the towel… I’ve taken about all I can handle… I think I will stick to this, and just give away some screen-caps, because I am genuinely the worst person to give comment on this segment. In case it escaped anyone’s attention. I,. Just. Don’t. Like. Gilles. Marini… At all!
I don’t know  what it is about him that ticks me off so badly. If this same segment, with the same jokes, the same tour etc. would have been given by anyone else, and not just Matthew/Luke and/or Dave, but for instance Ryan Devlin (Seth) I would have enjoyed this so much more and I would have raved about it, because, in general, it is NOT bad, but Marini is in it and he makes my skin crawl. There is something about him that works on my nerves like nails on a school-board. Completely irrational, I know, but there you have it.

So enjoy the pics and I’ll shut up about it and keep my venom to myself… .

Only remotely funny scene was of GM with his personal trainer Jean-Marc Danois. When he explains that 'working on the legs' is sitting on Danois'neck and being on the phone:

He also tells us that Danois helps him with his lines and they read some line and Marini tells Danois it should be more feminine, so Danois lifts up the leg of his short a bit to show some more legs (And OH MY what legs!)

... Hilarious! They should have hired him for the part of Luc Laurent!

Oooops! Advice to camera-man. If you can count the nose-hairs, you're too close!

:) I know the feeling. I don't believe that Matthew, Luke or Dave will say anything really bad about someone ON camera and I've seen pics of Matthew with Gilles and Dave with Gilles, so who knows? :)

What I LOVE more about all the DVD extras is how Luke is not able to even find ONE good thing about Marini. LOL He can't say anything bad ON camera but I think it's really significant how he didn't say anything good either. Not even "oh, he's nice"
And Matthew basically defined Marini as a suckup who makes him sick. Yes, he was "joking" but Matthew always says good things about the rest of the actors on his interviews, so I think it's really significant too! :)

I don't hate him but I find it so baffling that he got a feature dedicated to him on the DVD. Would it have killed them to have done a feature on Kevin and Scotty instead? Now, that would've been brilliant.

I can't get over that either. I think it just made me even more annoyed with him and his character. Of all the amazing (guest-)actors they had, HE got a feature?
(Though the mean side of me says: No one else could be bothered.)

I guess it would have killed them to give us Kevin/Scotty or some Sally Field/Beau Bridges or something with Ron Rifkin/Richard Chamberlain.

In general, the extras on this DVD are very 'uninspired'. The only thing I really liked was "Writing for the Walkers" and I couldn't help but grin that of all the things they mention, "The Unbelievable Grand Romance of Sarah/Luc" wasn't something they highlighted. ;)

From the bits I've seen about the features and some of the interviews I've read (still can't get David Marshall Grant's proposed S6 out of my head), I really think this show had become horribly out of touch with it's viewers. I can't think of anyone who gave a shit about Luc and even the usual vacuous media outlets weren't that enamoured with him so again a Gilles Marini feature is baffling.

it is very easy to explan why you hate what's-his-face. he is completely and utterly full of himself. he walked into the walker family like owned the place and the man can barely pronounce two words in english correctly... i am sure he is a nice guy if you st down and have a coffee but every single interview he gives he talks about himself and his work or he kisses other's ass. i do know interviews are about his career but it is the way he answers those questions, so freaking full of himself and it seems like he is walking on egg shells when he talks about someone else like he has to oly have god things to say about them... why? no one can like everyone and get alone with everyone, not even "dreamy" french guys...

i do actually wonder why he got the gig anyway, does he know someone? it was certainly not the (lack of) talent that got him there... if he wasn't married with kids (or straight for that matter) i would have y doubts about whose ass he kisses to get the job.

I think that there could be some truth to that. :)

I totally share your feelings about Marini. Those are the reasons why I can't stand him too.

I wonder about why ABC is so obsessed with him too. He is very bad for the ratings. So, maybe you have a point.

Thank you Marea for all the screencaps!!! :)

"WHY on earth, if you have the real deal eye-candy like Matthew Rhys, Luke Macfarlane and Dave Annable and don't forget: Rob Lowe! --) , why would you want to add someone like Marini, who is, in comparison, just an artificial sweetener. I just don't get it."

You're welcome. :)

and the man can barely pronounce two words in english correctly..

And believe me, it's not better when he speaks french! So bad acting!! A real torture!!!
29th-Nov-2011 02:55 pm (UTC)
Hee! I've been having the same problem. If he speaks French I can't understand him either. :)
