NYT - Glen Powell

God he gets exhausting quickly when he boasts about how great he is at playing the Hollywood game. Also, he absolutely took Ozempic.

Exhausting doesn't even begin to cover it.

[quote]Is Absolutely Willing to Play the Hollywood Game

So, he's announcing he's willing to suck cock for roles? Seems like that should have been happening a lot sooner.

[QUOTE] and non-existent ass.

And non-existent sex appeal.

by Anonymousreply 6June 10, 2024 11:23 PM

I have two words which perfectly describe Glen Powell at this stage of his career:

Armie Hammer.

You have a handsome white guy, stupid name, limited range but can be perfectly charming on screen. But he cannot bottle up the YOU MUST LOVE ME monster which threatens to consume everything around him. (In Armie's case, this figurative monster become a literal one.)

"In 1996, Lauren and Leslie Powell struggled to sell Girl Scout cookies in Austin, Texas, amid tough competition. Their 8-year-old brother, Glen, devised a clever marketing strategy, offering a “free gift with every purchase.” The gift was Glen himself, who would entertain customers with Elvis songs, helping the girls meet their quota." - chatgpt summary begins and ended there. I didn't want to read anymore.

It is not about wanting to play a favorite hero or making art or entertaining people anymore. It is about OBEDIANCE.

I remember this because I commented about it on here - when the Top Gun Maverick reviews came out - Powell posted a very odd photo on Instagram. It was him, shirtless, staring straight into the camera like it owed him money. Now, Powell was not the star or second billed. He did not earn those reviews because he wasn't in the movie that much. But he demanded your attention. Not asks, demands.

Underneath the permanent five o clock shadow, the dimples, the chest hair and six pack stomach...

...is Helen Lawson.

He’s incredibly handsome- he’s ripped. He’s talented. First was aware of him as John Glen in Hidden Figures. He’s terrific in Hit Man. Definitely a talented guy. So of course all the angry unhappy trolls on DL will do their best (worst).

As I often say- read almost any thread on DL and you’ll understand the MAGA phenom. There are a lot of very unhappy dystopian people in the world- perhaps much more than I was ever aware. The venom spewed at successful and talented people on DL while not necessarily right wing is in the same spirit of free floating anger and misinformation so common in the Right.

All true. He’s a good actor, just not top A-list material. His eyes are too close together. He’s another Rami Malek. It’s better when the camera isn’t on him for too long. And if people don’t like looking at you for too long, you can’t be a leading actor.

His popularity definitely seems a bit forced. A bit like Timothee Chalamet was a few years ago.

He's a classic example of a guy who has a perfect body and is then seen as hot, even though his face isn't particularly handsome. I know a guy in real life like that... amazing body but if you just look at his face, he's not good looking. Fair play to making the best of what he has, though.

by Anonymousreply 30June 11, 2024 10:10 AM

The guy has a huge amount of charisma, he's worked consistently in supporting roles and has now reached leading man status.

That's all

by Anonymousreply 31June 11, 2024 10:25 AM

I actually like his face. He's got a great smile and is indeed a masculine throwback without needing to be hyper-macho. But the thing that I can't get past is the corgi-like proportions. His torso is really long and his legs are kind of stubby and short. His arms are on the short side too. Once spotted, you can't unsee it.

He thinks he's gonna be big a star- in the Tom Cruise vein- but he won't. Big stars are extinct. Chris Hemsworth can't even open a movie that isn't a Thor flick. And I agree with other posters who say he's needy. Audiences don't want to be burdened with that. Once they start to get a whiff of that desperation, he won't be flavor of the month anymore...

I don't like him at that angle in OP's pic, he looks like a deformed spaz.

I like that he’s playing the Hollywood game. He’s very calculating and it’s refreshing.

However, is it translating into actual popularity? Or is it smoke and mirrors?

The fact that his social media following is so low kind of reflects it’s a PR push.

As I said in another thread, he has less of a social media following than some soft core porn stars on OnlyFans. Hollywood is loving him right now but does the public?

by Anonymousreply 34June 11, 2024 12:05 PM

Here is how bad Glen Powell is

He is doing a sitcom

He does not need to do a sitcom

He wants to.

The sitcom, “Chad Powers” which he is cowriting and coproducing, is not even his idea. It’s based on an Eli Manning sketch.

The humor of the sketch revolved around the cognitive dissonance of seeing 40 year old Manning pretend to be a college age football player walk-on “Chad Powers.”

Glen Powell, who actually is almost 40, will be playing a college football player in the series. Manning was playing himself playing Chad Powers; Powell is playing a college football quarterback who will be playing Chad Powers.

Glen Powell is not even a big man. Part of the reason he was even cast in Top Gun Maverick is because he wouldn’t tower over Tom Cruise.

Yet he has cast himself as a college football quarterback.

Why even bother with this? He wants to do movies right?

The answer is simple:

Ted Lasso.

He is ripping off Ted Lasso because he sees himself just like Jason Sudeikis did in that insufferable series:

Completely adorable.

I don’t think Instagram followers are very reliable. The vast majority of celebs let their PR reps handle their accounts and the number of followers can be bought or manipulated. I don’t trust the number of social media followers but he is absolutely being forced and pushed. All we can do is not see his movies because his PR will claim any little success a film had was because of him.

Glen Powell was not obscure a year ago - he'd had some supporting roles in big projects - and he's not a household name now - he's doing very well for himself after a huge box office hit.

The number of Instagram followers doesn’t reveal much. Followers can be bought and the comments can be manipulated. His 1.6 million Instagram followers ultimately doesn’t mean anything. I do think he isn’t as popular as the media would like you to believe. I hate that in today’s Hollywood actors are quickly given status they haven’t earned. He had one hit rom-com, big deal?

Unless you closely follow Hollywood, the average person isn’t aware of Powell and the other “stars” that are foisted on the public. Even with social media. That’s how bland and forgettable the current crop of talent is in Hollywood. Cruise, Julia, Jennifer, Brad, Angelina, Clooney, Pitt, DiCaprio- all of them just had that special it factor that made memorable and household names.

I think Hollywood quickly anoints actors with status they haven’t earned yet because the industry is at its knees. They’ll keep repeating Powell can open a movie over and over in the hopes that some people will actually start believing it.

Must be a slow news week at the NYTImes Online as there have been at least four if not five stories about Powell or Hit Man or Linklater or Adria Arjona in the last few days. Did I enjoy the movie? Sure, but it falls apart once you start thinking about it. (It really should have been a four- or five-episode limited series to fill in the plot holes). Did I enjoy Powell? Sure, but there are plenty of actors who could have played the role. I have no interest in Twisters, though. Kudos to Hit Man for being an original script and not a rebooted, warmed-over known property.
