There was much discussion at the ones2watch4 water cooler whether or not Josh Duhamel (pronounced “DUH mel”) qualified as an up and comer. He was part of the now canceled NBC show “Las Vegas” and was Tad Hamilton in Win a Date with Tad Hamilton (2004). Then there are those tiny little low budget independent Transformer films. (The second one is opening June 24) Let’s face it though, those are all about Shia. Josh doesn’t get nearly as much press or photos on those films. And of course he’s just recently gotten married to Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie. But really when you stand back and look at all that, Josh should be way more famous than he is. So I’m going to attempt to remedy that right now.
Josh Duhamel is one tall drink of water. IMDB lists him at 6’3”. That’s 6’3” of pure deliciousness. (You’ll notice several of our actors here are over 6 feet tall. We have a thing about that.) Originally from North Dakota, acting was not what young Duhamel had in mind as an occupation. He was going to be a dentist. [insert off-color joke about drilling here.] But then that age-old Hollywood fairytale happened: he was discovered by a modeling agent in San Francisco, worked on some soap operas (and earned several soap opera awards) and then a big break in the form of Tad Hamilton. Not too bad a way to start, eh?
As I mentioned before the second of the Transformers movie is out this month and that should be a monstrous hit. After that we get to see Josh in another rom/com, When in Rome with cutie Kristen Bell. This one has got quite the cast. Could this be the triumphant return to the silver screen of none other than Don Johnson? Well unless he’s standing on a couple apple boxes he’s just not going to measure up to Josh…in so many ways.
Oh if you’re ever in Minot, North Dakota (as if any of us would be) be sure and dine at 10 North Main. It’s Josh’s restaurant. My compliments to the owner!
