Cinematic Crush: Casper Van Dien

Crush object: Casper Van Dien, actor.

- Early television roles included stints on One Life to Live and Beverly Hills, 90210.

- 1997 was his big year: he played James Dean in the TV biopic James Dean: Race with Destiny and sci-fi hero Johnny Rico in Starship Troopers.

- Other high profile film roles included Tarzan in Tarzan and the Lost City and Bram Bones in Sleepy Hollow. He also played American Psycho Patrick Bateman in The Rules of Attraction, but all his scenes were cut.

- He starred in the prime time soap Titans as well as the drama Watch Over Me, co-starring his wife Catherine Oxenberg. The two had previously acted together in The Collectors and The Omega Code and appeared in the reality series I Married a Princess.

- Most recently, he returned as Johnny Rico for the direct-to-video sequel Starship Troopers 3: Marauder.


  1. He was the worst James Dean. The whole movie was bad. After that I never like him.

  2. Usually I like the objects of your affection, but Casper veers a little too close to Jim Caveizel territory doing TBN crap like The Omega Code. Anyone know what his feelings on LGBT issues are?
