My ultimate celebrity crush!
This beautiful man was not only funny, he could also sing like the dickens. You will probably recognize him if you’ve seen White Christmas, and if you haven’t already, I encourage you to watch his other films as well!
I was first introduced to him during a high school English class when we watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty after reading the short story of the same name. I’ve been in love with him ever since.
It makes up for him being in Twilight.

OH DEAR SWEET JESUS CHRIST I FORGOT HE WAS IN THE HOBBIT.
LEE PACE!!! I love him so much I’m probably actually going to see Twilight just to see him. Look how adorable with the sword and the helmet!
Jensen asks Whedon what the fans have meant to him. What happens next is one of the most emotionally moving moments I’ve seen at Comic-Con. Whedon struggles, or seems to, for the right words.
Somebody in the crowd yells out, “We love you!”
Whedon hears this, struggles some more.
And the crowd begins to applaud, and stand up, and soon the entire room is in an ovation. The cast stands up too. It’s possibly the most perfect way to end the panel.
Whedon takes the microphone. “Only an idiot would try to follow that with a sentence,” he says, which is precisely what I was thinking.
“When you come out of a great movie you feel like you’re in that world,” he says. “When you’re telling a story you’re trying to connect to people in a particular way. It’s about inviting them into a world. The way you’ve inhabited this world, this universe, you have become part of it. When I see you guys, I don’t think the show is off the air. I think there’s spaceships and horses — the story is alive.”
I feel lucky to get to go to Comic Con this year (Thursday evening and then all day Sunday!) but you’re always going to miss something amazing. This sounds like it was wonderful. What a great show and cast and writer.
