Man Candy Monday: Lee Pace

Hello all you fellow gossipers! This might be the one and only case where being called a gossiper is a fantastic thing?! Anyways, I'm Christianna and I rant and rave over at my little blog "The Girl With The Blue Bow"! Feel free to stop by and join in the party going on over there! There might even be balloons!

When Leeann asked me to cover Man Candy Monday for her while she's out of town, I was extremely excited! It also sent me on the hunt for the perfect man to share with all of you, and I finally found that man! I tend to like guys in the spot light who not everyone knows, and this fellow fits that bill. He's tall, dark and completely handsome! This guy has a vibe that is both roguish and nerdy at the same time. I haven't quite figured out how he pulls that one off yet? On top of his brilliantly good looks, this fellow also has some amazing acting chops. And though he will be adding his acting abilities to some huge franchise films in the next couple of years (one of the roles will even have him sharing the screen with one of my favorites, Jackson Rathbone, yeah I just threw a 2nd guy into this, I bend rules) his roles in gritty independent films are what got him noticed in the first place. As well as his fantastic portrayal of a nerdy pie maker, who brings people back from the dead! So who is this fantastically brilliant and handsome man? I give you...

When He Was Born They Called Him:
Lee Grinner Pace

He Was Born On:
March 25th, 1979 in Oklahoma - USA

So, this is goodbye for now, and once again I'd like to thank Leeann for inviting me to share this fellow with all you great gals!
