Except Filipino, and not born in Britain.
As I’ve said, I recently saw Bend it like Beckham. There were a bunch of (admittedly hot) shirtless men in the movie. Subliminally, I was extremely certain I had seen one of the hotter (shirtless of course) ones earlier. Though I wasn’t consciously thinking about it, during a randomly-purposeful googling session today, I figured out who he is. And why he seemed so familiar.
He’s Trey Farley.
Now, a lot of you young’ns might have no idea who he is. I wouldn’t have either, except I happen to be ancient enough to have caught him on Channel [V]‘s (the Asia-Pacific-Australian one, not the now-tainted-97.4%-desi-programming-and-proud-of-it one) “By Demand”. He’s by far the single most dynamic person on TV, ever, and the primary reason I put up with whatever crap music they played, for as long as he was on that show.
I used to worship him.
Him and that little stuffed purple-green-talking cow(?), Muriel.
It’s funny how you tend to idolize the most random of people (or muppets), once you assume they are capable of breezing through something that’s hard for you.
