Step aside Paul Giamatti. There is a new meaty and endearingly complicated thespian in town and his name is Diego. Make no mistake, Diego has a classic Hollywood beauty that would make Paul Newman nervous. I mean, get a load of those bedroom eyes.
You don’t need a pair of specs to appreciate those killer pecs.
Diego is a regular Paul Rudd– a total dingus hiding behind a face that melts hearts with a laser beam of handsome. Also, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that this dog should have been named Paul. I mean he has the rugged masculinity of Paul Walker and the wise eyes of Paul Sorvino. Okay, I’m done with the Paul references. But seriously! Look at him!
What makes young starlet Diego so refreshing is that he is just so darn relatable. Dinguses, you guys. They are just like us. I mean who hasn’t gotten irritated on their birthday? Getting older is ruff, man.
Or regretted taking a sour Warhead challenge?
Who among us hasn’t looked like this after realizing that rolling in the grass may not be the most effective way to flirt?
And if you haven’t made this face in bed out of sheer shock that your grass flirting worked, well, then you may not have a soul.
He may have the charm of a young Paul Reiser (okay really, I promise that is the last one), but if this is not the face of the people’s dingus, I don’t know what is.
It’s amazing that Diego has stayed so humble, given his cinematic success. Why, just recently he was on an episode of MASH. And by recently, I mean 30 plus years ago because that show is crazy old. But he was great in it! So convincing as a quirky army general who ends up in the surgical unit during the Korean War.
Speaking of surgery, did you see Diego’s arc in the hit TV show House? He played a doctor that actually had a reasonable amount of bedside manner! And he looked great in a mask!
What about when he had the titular role in the Amelia Earhart biopic?
Or starred in an experimental indie flick?
How about his cameo in Gremlins 3? Or was it 4? 5?
Diego is all professional in front of the camera, and all class while on set.
And that, my friends, is the sign of a true actor. Just like Paul Reubens. You know, Pee Wee Herman? Okay, that one might have been a stretch.
