Male Eye Candy Aplenty in The Departed

If you’re female, heterosexual and out of your teens, there’s probably something for you to look at in Martin Scorsese’s new film The Departed. It’s an adaptation of a well-spoken-of Hong Kong film Internal Infernal Affairs. Check out the cast:

  • Leonardo DiCaprio
  • Matt Damon
  • Jack Nicholson
  • Martin Sheen
  • Mark Wahlberg
  • Alec Baldwin

I believe that covers everybody from 23 to 73.

And here is the great-looking trailer (thanks to The Movie Blog). Plus, it’s a crime film with plenty of guns and men yelling at each other, so the straight guys should enjoy it too. The Departed opens in the States (and probably Canada) on October 6.


  1. Take a printout of this posting down to Pumpjack and fact-check its first four words.

    Trannies in cycling are the result of political correctness and only straight girls think guys are hot. You’re so up-to-the-minute, Darren!

  2. Darren, Darren, Darren. And what about us gay guys? With the exception of Martin Sheen (and Alec is getting kind of portly these days), there’s ploetny of eye candy for the homosexual male, as well.

    Did you lose your political correctness gene somehow? The other post about transgenders in sports should casue a lot of controversy if it gets picked up in the right place. I was temptedd to pass it along to some of my tranny friends. But I didnt want you to get blogbombed. Plus, I actually really understand the question and have no idea what my opinion is.

  3. Matt: Yeah, you’re right. In truth, though, I think I’ve written more posts specifically for my gay male audience than my straight female one, so maybe I was just trying to even things out.

  4. Point taken, Darren. Of course, when I first ran across your blog I assumed you were gay because it was so gay positive (and because you just looked so darn cute — a little wishful thinking). Even so, I scoured the archives to see, and I quickly realized you were simply a FOG (friend of the gays). It’s been refreshing to develop a one-sided “cyber” friend who is heterosexual and comfortable. So, thanks.

  5. The english name of the movie is “Infernal Affairs” not “inTernal”, but the brain see what it expects.

  6. Came to this post through your movie post. I can only concur on 3 of the mentions. Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg and Leonardo DiCaprio can call me any day. The rest? Um. Thanks, but no thanks.
