Dellums? No, Dell-ooooms

July 14, 2009

So while trolling the interwebs for food policy news during the break in the Sotomayor hearings, I stumbled upon this gem from Civil Eats (the blog of the Slow Food Movement):

Mayors Newsom and Dellums Advance Good Food Policy “

Of course my immediate reaction was not gratitude for California for yet again promoting healthier food and eating standards than the rest of the country can hope to achieve in the next 75 years, but to wonder – Ron Dellums?  As in, The Color of Friendship Ron Dellums?  Ron Dellums, whose family and exchange student from South Africa taught us 12 year olds the meaning of apartheid and interrace relations in 2000?

With Carl Lumbly as Ron Dellums, who has also played with incredible majesty Marcus Dixon in “Alias“, this movie is notable for the silly South African accents, afros, bell bottoms and articulate youngsters speaking lines that would have sounded stilted coming out of Ban Ki-Moon’s mouth.  But, it did win awards and shit, so I guess even at the tender age of 12, I had good taste.

But on to the important part – “Alias” featured Victor Garber.

He is a god among mortals, a silver fox whose prowess cannot be contained by a single television series, cinematic masterpiece, or even continent.  If there ever was a man to whom a woman could devote her life (h*normative), he would be it.  Let us recap this Hercules’ resume:

He played Mayor George Moscone in Milk, dying tragically with Sean Penn to the tragedy and inspiration of all indie theater-goers.  One time, he was in Ugly Betty.  Another time, he was on Will & Grace.  He can also sing – as Daddy Warbucks in “Annie”, and also starring in “The Music Man”.  Garber also played the architect in “Titanic”, and once he was on “Law & Order”.  He also was that creepy (but hot) law professor in “Legally Blonde”, you know the one who tried to get into Reese Witherspoon’s pants and she freaked out because she CLEARLY had no concept of what it means to be ravaged by a real man? I totally would have gone for that, and I would be partner, and I wouldn’t have had to star in Legally Blonde: 2, where she did some shit with PETA.  Fuck, I hate PETA.
