More likely, ME, IN MY LIVING ROOM, with MY DOG PENNY.
The story goes like this:  my mother-in-law the party animal sends my wife this movie review, with Michelle Williams and Luke Kirby.  You see it here with the post it:  "LOOKS LIKE GARY".  My mother-in-law is so wonderful and she loves me very much.  I am her favorite son-in-law and always have been.  I am her ONLY son-in-law, so while the bar is low, I am still adoring to her, and adorable it would seem.
Anyway,  I am super complimented.  Luke Kirby is awesome!
But then I dug through my desk papers and came across the People magazine spread...seen here....Jennifer Anniston and Justin Theroux!  He is awesome!  I was at the salon last month and tore out the page because JUSTIN IS WEARING MY JEANS, my LEATHER JACKET, my BOOTS, my SUNGLASSES and even my TEE SHIRT!!!!!!!!!  He is not wearing my girl, thank goodness, but get this, JUSTIN THEROUX WENT TO COLLEGE WITH ME.  YES, you heard it here first, speaking of six degrees of seperation, Justin Theroux went to Bennington College with me and we were best buds!  **** And here he is with Jennifer.... ask me to tell you about the day he was an 18 year old freshman with pimples, a pink golf shirt with an alligator on it, a mullet haircut, also trying to grow a 'stache and he puked in the bushes outside the dorm and I was like "dude, if you want to go to Hollywood and date Jennifer Anniston, LET ME HELP YOU WITH YOUR STYLE".

(In the early 90s people told me "you look like Tom Hanks!"  and I was like "meh" or "you look like Michael Keaton!" and I liked that better and I would go "I'M BATMAN" then I grew a giant 'stache and people could tell me "you look like Magnum PI!!!!!"....anyway.......

****  OF COURSE I DID NOT know Justin Theroux and did not party with him in college and teach him how to dress!  Duh, he's 5 years younger than me....although he DID go to the same college as me, as did Peter Dinklage of Game of Thrones...they were just after my time :)

Dude, you are way cooler than Justin.

(btw, love the post!)

Jessie said...

He totally stole your look Gary!

Lori Buff said...

You are a superstar!

kate and jim said...

I still think Michael Keaton... but this Justin guy has definitely copied your style, Gary.

Joyful Things said...

wow! Justin Theroux does look like you.

You've got it better than him! You have your lovely wife (I think Aniston is overrated!), Spike and Penny!

Claudia from Idiot's Kitchen said...

Just wait until Justin starts showing up for events in all sorts of cool t-shirts....

Busy Bee Suz said...

Dude...they are totally killing your style! The NERVE! ;)
I love that your MIL loves you so much....that is a testament to the man that you are.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

I like what Claudia said!

You most look like Brian Mainschein to me--he's move from city council to running for a state office--who knows, maybe one day he'll be the presidential candidate who looks like you!,r:18,s:0,i:130

And you're probably 10x happier than any of those guys.

I graduated from high school with one of the guys from Pearl Jam. True Story. Of course, the band he was in back then wasn't PJ, but he was a nice guy. I had a couple of classes with him.

Gary, I grew up in the same neighborhood as Justin. I hope you weren't as much of a rascal as he was as a kid. He was rotten, but charming. Loved attention. We camp counselors used to tie him up when he got in our hair too much. He and Billy Dunn ran around and through camp all summer, but were rarely signed up.
