I dunno; I think he's too haggard.  He's the wrong kind of cutie -- the
heroin-addict kind, where I find Howl more pretty (in a young Nick
Brandan (Xander) or Tom Welling (Clark on Smallville) kind of way --
although those two are both wrong for other reasons: too dark for one;
and too humble for another; and how many more clauses and forms of
punctuation can I fit into this sentence?).  Though the actress who
played Glory in Buffy season 5 would make a *perfect* (if slightly old)

Ye knowe ek, that in forme of speche is chaunge
Withinne a thousand yere, and wordes tho
That hadden pris, now wonder nyce and straunge
Us thinketh hem, and yit they spake hem so.  -- Chaucer
