Have you seen in him in BETTER CALL SAUL or BREAKING BAD

 

Bauer never stopped working but I believe he might have been a major star if he had picked better projects -even in "Thieves of Heart" his charms are wasted.

Steven Bauer- started out as Rocky Echevarria in the very funny sit com "Que Pasa Usa" (1977-1979) playing essentially himself a Cuban-American jock.  He co-starred with Pacino in "Scarface"(1983)  but then Hollywood did not know what to do with him "Thief of Hearts" (1984) was his only starring vehiclehttps://youtu.be/GX5C5eiCe20

I love that word swoonworthy. LOL

 

Keith Andes also guest-starred on The Lucy Show. He's in a second season episode called 'Lucy Goes Duck Hunting.' It can be watched on Hulu.

Yes, he should've been a much bigger star in America. He just had the right look and cool attitude. 

I watched the documentary Guns For Hire: The Making of the Magnificent Seven a few months ago. Horst Buchholz was interviewed, and he downright admitted he couldn't stand Steve McQueen. Yul Brynner and James Cagney also had problems with Buchholz. It's possible his bad attitude could be a reason why he wasn't a bigger star in America.

Grant Williams - one of the most beautiful men in 50's cinema -

When Susan Slade (Connie Stevens) had a breakdown in "Susan Slade" after learning that he had unexpectedly died, you could understand the nature of her despair.

 

Grant Williams was excellent in THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN.  As he shrank, he shrank from his wife in all ways and took up with a little person until the inevitable.  His battle with a spider is one of the greatest scenes ever in '50's science fiction.

Perhaps his film career in Germany was more important to him.

 

He and Leslie Caron were unforgettable lovers in "Fanny".

As I already mentioned, I watch NCIS: Los Angeles. Chris O'Donnell and LL Cool J (both of which are ineligible for this thread) have a bromance and have good chemistry with one another. But Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan have better chemistry on the Hawaii Five-O reboot. (I've only seen a few episodes, but I admire both Alex and Scott.)

 

Here's the difference:

Yes I saw this in the clips Alex and Scott don't have any problems hugging actually it's nice to see straight men who are not afraid to show their love for each other.

Scott Caan and his Hawaii Five-O co-star Alex O'Loughlin (a possible contender for this thread) make a cute couple. :wub:

Scott Caan appeared in Varsity Blues and Into the Blue with his buddy Paul Walker but has left movies (and Walker) in favor of the sun and sand on the Hawaii Five-O reboot.
