FMK Friday: Ball Droppin' Dudes - The Results

It's first Friday! I've got something special planned for the next round of FMK, but before I get into that let's see how the previous round of Fuck, Marry Kill shook out. If you still don't know how this game works, here we go:

To play I present you, my readers, with three people. You must decide which person you'd like to bed, which you'd wed and which you want dead. It's not always as simple as it sounds.

The theme of Round 9, Ball Droppin' Dudes, received a total of sixteen votes. I believe that's a record for this feature! I expected to see a close race, but it turned out overwhelmingly brutal for one gentleman. In the end voters chose to:

Fuck Viggo,


Taking a closer look at the votes we see:

Fuck Viggo: Viggo was the voters choice to bed, even before I cast my vote. It was a tough decision for me. On the one hand, Ewan seems like a dreamy fella; a once in a lifetime lay. On the other hand, Viggo immediately conjures images of mountains, sheep tending and roughing it. If the tent's a rockin'...  
Marry Ewan: My vote made Ewan the irrefutable choice for wedded bliss. Viggo's probably great in the sack and equally handy around the house, but there's just something about Ewan. It makes you want to love him, and hug him, and squeeze him, and call him George. I bet he gives great spoon.
Kill Peter: As M. Hufstader commented, Peter freaked her out in Skeleton Key. Apparently, she's not alone. In the end, even I chose to give him the axe. He seems like a sweet enough guy and he has kind eyes, but he does play unhinged characters a little too well. Besides, if he eats it, Maggie will be left alone and in need of considerable consoling.


To kick off the new year, I want to hear your contenders for Round 10. Over the next week, give me your favorite FMK match-up in the comments. Provide your top three contenders be they actual people or imaginary characters, male, female, etc. My only request is that they be somewhat recognizable to the masses. The goal is to get tons of voter participation, not leave people scratching their heads. I'll choose from the potentials next week and get the battle started. I can't wait to get your suggestions!

  1. I feel the results of this poll are very accurate. Viggo seems like a good Brokeback fling. But you always want to go home to Ewan, where he'll sing you medleys, and dance.

    Sarsgaard just shouldn't have done it with Liam Neeson in Kinsey. I think that hurt him.

    Beer is hindering my thoughts on FMK, so I may have to come back. But what about the men/women of the Golden Globe nominations?

    Angelina, Emma Stone, Halle Berry?

    Jeremy Renner, Ryan Gosling, Jake Gyllenhaal?

  2. How about actors who look great in suits? You could think of a catchy title, but here are some contenders:
    Joseph Gordon Levitt
    Jeremy Piven
    Jon Hamm

  3. I let Mrs. Fletch take the vote on this one - I think she chose to Marry Peter, Fuck Ewan and Kill Viggo. She's thought Viggo looks like he's dying of a disease for a few years now. I'm not saying AIDS, but I'm not not saying it, either.

    One of Blake's FMK teams gave me this idea: the Emmas...Stone, Watson, and Roberts. Of course, they all seem illegal to me, but they're not. Quite.

    You could do an Academy Award theme - Firth, Franco, Bardem (assuming Bridges is out, and Esisenberg...well, he'd lose for sure). Or Lawrence, Portman, Williams?

  4. @Fletch: Haha! Viggo has become freaky gaunt these past few years.

    I like both of your FMK ideas. I've been careful to double check ages on all my combatants so I don't get too creepy with it, but I believe I'll be safe with those choices.

    With everyone's ideas and the one's I've had since this post, I've got a stack of FMK's to get me into the summer.
