Keeping it in the family...
This is Steve McQueen. He's from movies, not tv, and he died when I was very little, but I've had a crush on him ever since I saw him in The Great Escape. Good-looking, rugged, brave, and a rebel to boot.
Now, this is Steven R. McQueen.
He was just a kid when he played Efrem's prodigy piano student on Everwood, but he's 21 now and playing troubled stoner Jeremy Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries. If you think there's a resemblance in the way they look, you're right. There's a reason they have the same name (well, not the exact same name, since Steve's real first name was Terence, but close enough) - Steven is Steve's grandson. And I have a huge crush on them both. Maybe it's a little twisted. Or maybe it's incredibly sweet, tying together the generations. Maybe a little bit of both? Either way, if you've never watched The Great Escape, rent it. And if you don't watch The Vampire Diaries, you may want to check out Everwood. It could be incredibly cloying at times, but mostly this show about a father and son learning to be father and son and even friends would make me cry. Check it out.
Go now. Go!
