I promised Mackie some time ago that I would post the Jessica Rabbit un-tooned pic that the guys at Pixeloo did, so here it is:
Though the point wasn't to make Jessica Rabbit look as real as possible (hence the exaggerated eyelid), I have to say, she looks a lot like a redheaded Angelina Jolie. Or at the very least, she looks more like Angelina Jolie than Heidi Klum in her Jessica Rabbit homage for GQ magazine:
The Pixeloo artists also did some un-tooning of Homer Simpson (and Mario of the Nintendo game) that were a little bit creepy, to say the least. For Homer un-tooned, I prefer this picture by artist Roberto Parada better:
A little bit stern-looking, like you should be afraid of him instead of invite him over for some beers but not bad, I think.
On the topic of fictional characters…since I just read the latest Sookie Stackhouse book that came out a few days ago (Book #8: From Dead to Worse), and found out that the next one in the series isn't slated to come out till next year, I am so looking forward to seeing Sookie in live-action for the HBO series, True Blood. When I first heard Anna Paquin was playing the character, I wasn't exactly thrilled but since coming across these pictures from Boston Common magazine, I have to admit, she looks better as a blond than I would have imagined. And I love those Christian Louboutin shoes she's wearing on this page. They're pretty cute, don't you think? And if Anna as a blond isn't enticement enough to watch the show when it debuts, then Alexander Skarsgard as Eric should be more than enough to get everyone's attention. His IMDB bio also says the guy was voted Sweden's sexiest man five times. Ooh-la-la. Let's just hope he can act too.
Finally, to wrap up this post, I just found out that our favorite actor-playing-fictional-actor, Adrian Grenier, has a book club. AND is doing something to benefit developing countries. Can you imagine? His coolness factor just went up a notch. Or ten. 🙂
