Cinematic Crush: Lee Pace

Crush object: Lee Pace, actor.

- His amazing breakthrough performance as Calpernia Addams in the excellent Soldier's Girl earned him Golden Globe, Independent Spirit and Satellite Award nominations, plus a Gotham Award.

- He then co-starred in the cult TV fave Wonderfalls, created by Bryan Fuller.

- His innocent, slightly goofy charms are on ample display as Ned the Pie Man on the delightful, whimsical fantasy series Pushing Daisies(also created by Fuller); you can certainly see why a girl would come back from the dead for him. The role has earned him another Globe nomination, and he is up for an Emmy next month.

- At the movies, he can be seen in The White Countess, Infamous, The Fall, The Good Shepherd and Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, available on DVDtomorrow.

- Next up: the long-awaited return of Pushing Daisies on October 1, plus the feature film thriller Possession, due January 9.

  1. Lee Pace is fantastic. I first encountered him in Pushing Daisies. I'm really unhappy the series was canceled. Recently, I watched Miss Pettigrew. I have Soldier's Girl my Netflix queue as well as The Fall. I'm sure Pace is headed for great roles.
