Jessica Alba

Born April 28, 1981

Jessica Alba started out acting as a teenager and has been turning out great entertainment for all of us ever since then. She is one of those actresses that makes interesting choices and elevates the role.

Noteworthy

  • Idle Hands – I college students right hand has a mind of its own. Alba is one of the characters with hands that don’t have murderous intent. This was the first movie that I saw Alba in.
  • Sin City – Alba is little Nancy. I love the feel and the film work of this movie. Alba is one of the pivotal characters and a lot of the plot hinges on her.
  • Fantastic Four – Alba is Sue Storm. No, really Alba is Sue Storm. I thought she was perfect as her quarter of Marvel’s first family.
  • Machete – You got to love a movie that jumped from a fake trailer in another movie to the big screen. Alba is fantastic.

You have to be the best of whatever you are, but successful, cool actresses come in all shapes and sizes.

Ed Helms

Ed Helms - Born January 24, 1974 Ed Helms is one of my favorite performers alive today. I say, performer, because he is way more than just an actor. Whether he is improvising, singing, or acting, Ed Helms is one of those people that brings a smile to your face. As...

Plantains- The Other Starch of the Americas

I’ve been a pretty fortunate gringo as I am blessed with three families, one by blood and two by adoption of sorts.  After I moved to DC in the early 2000s not knowing a person in the world I quickly made two friends, one Colombian and the other Cuban; both obviously...
