There is a new blog logo. Discuss.

Unresolved Sexual Tension is out, and a new blog logo theme is in. Talk about it in the comments. As a reminder, you can find links to, and explanations for, all the previous logos in this post.

Also, I'm running low on my backlog of logos, and I'm open to suggestions (several previous logos were reader-conceived). Just e-mail the ideas to me, rather than posting them in the comments, so others won't have the idea given away before they even see it.

Oceans 11

Awesome hair

Adam said...

What is the email address?

Fortran said...

Hmm. Stars in roles before they made it big (at least from the last two)? Looks like "Facts of Life" Clooney, but I can't place Pitt.

Alan Sepinwall said...

What is the email address?

Same as always: asepinwall(at)starledger.com

Anthony Strand said...

It's gotta be Ocean's 11 cast members in TV roles.

Hollywoodaholic said...

Characters named "Alan?" Just a guess because I remember Carl Reiner played Alan Brady on the Dick Van Dyke show.

David said...

Brad Pitt in short-lived television show. I think it was called "Glory Days."

Joemo said...

I love that the Elliot Gould photo is from the show E/R. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086704/

I loved that show and it's catchphrase, "Stay back of the white line!"

Stephen said...

Does anyone else remember Brad Pitt's early role in a horror film called "Cutting Class"

DonBoy said...

Yeah! That old E/R also featured the young Corinne Bohrer, seen 20 years later as Veronica Mars' runaway mother, among other things.

Vic DiGital said...

George Clooney also appeared in E/R, curiously enough.

I know the answer's 'Ocean's 11,' but all but Carl Reiner were guest stars on 'Friends.' Pitt was a high school friend of Ross, Clooney was a doctor, and Gould, of course, was the Gellar patriarch.

Reiner did guest star on 'Mad About You,' though, another NBC comedy.

Tricia said...

I believe that pic of Pitt was from when he had a recurring role on "Growing Pains" as Carol's interest/temptation while she was Bobby's girlfriend.

And I think that Clooney's pic is from when he was on Roseanne as the factory boss.

So yeah - Oceans 11 actors in early TV roles

Anthony Strand said...

Tricia - Early TV roles or, in the case of Gould, a TV role from after his movie career had faded.

Hatfield said...

Unrelated, because the logo's been guessed already, but thanks for the tweet about The Hold Steady. I'm worried what it'll be like without Franz on keys, but I'm sure it'll still be awesome. Can we expect one of your rare music reviews?

Alan Sepinwall said...

Maybe, Hatfield. Like you, I'm worried about the keyboard thing, and also the comments that they want to move away from the sound of Boys & Girls and Stay Positive, since I like those albums much more than the first two, but I'm gonna buy it no matter what.

Hatfield said...

Boys and Girls in America is one of my favorite albums ever, so I'm ok with it not being as strong as that, but I just hope it's not too strong a change.

Ultimately though, we know there'll be anthemic choruses (even if less so), story-like lyrics and Tad Kubler's big guitar, because that's just who these guys are. I'm seeing them in LA the day after it comes out; somehow I think I'll find pretext to mention it here.

Ok, end threadjack...

Alf said...

I remember Brad Pitt in "Head of the Class."

Brian said...

Given that Alan said the theme's only "maybe" been guessed, here's mine. Logo theme: memorable hair. Elliott Gould's chest hair is second only to Tom Selleck's. Alan Brady (Carl Reiner) famously wore a toupee in The Dick Van Dyke Show. Clooney's mullet and Pitt's whatever-that-is finish off the foursome.

Anonymous said...

it's obvious, 4 formidable actors during their stints on TV.

Elliott Gould always had gorgeous hair that you wanted to walk barefoot through, the others..... Blah!
