Spader purely for the creepy roles he played in the nineties and naughties ... especially the very-naughty Spader in Secretary.

Spader for me too.

Spader, totally. Judd was always so... greasy.

Spader! Nobody plays sleazy Preppies quite like him. Also, he was great in the underrated JACK'S BACK.

This is a toughie. I don't think either guy is really good looking, so based solely on film roles... I'll go for Nelson, because I love Breakfast Club.

Fletch said...

Spader's probably the call here, but I think Nelson's creepy current looks played a factor. Then again, Spader's taken to looking like his Boston Whatever costar Shatner. Eww.

Definitely Spader all the way.

Fletch...Spader is looking great again...very dapper. He lost most of his Boston Legal weight and is terrific on Broadway in David Mamet's RACE.

I always had a strong aversion to Judd's nose. Those flaring nostrils give me nightmares.

Fletch said...

Anon - right you are - Spader is looking much better these days. Thank you for the correction!

Rachel - lol...

A thousand times Nelson for Breakfast Club and Hot Rod. Way too psyscho for me Spader is. Nelson is no weirdo but quirky and childlike and just a bit sexually agressive while Spader creeps the shit out of me let alone be sexy..The looks that Nelson gives are so war and sexy like "real life" every day guy sexy.
