Geeky Movie Crush: Speed Racer Emile Hirsch

I knew the Speed Racer trailer was the perfect opportunity to post a picture of the adorable Emile Hirsch. As the title character in Speed Racer, Emile makes my geek girl dreams come true by embodying one of my favorite cartoon characters from my childhood in the film version. Helmed by the Wachowskis — themselves geek heroes as the filmmakers of The Matrix films — Speed Racer looks like high tech action fun.

Emile's been on my radar since The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys, and while I love his work in dramatic fare like Into the Wild, I'm excited that he's tackling an action movie that won't be a typical popcorn blockbuster. Also, Emile in that helmet? Too cute.

To watch the Speed Racer trailer,

I've had a crush on him forever too...which is kinda freaky since it may make me a cradle robber, but he's only a few years younger...but the kid is talented and hot!

I'd also like to mention... Rain (Bi, Korean pop star/actor/every Korean girl's wet dream) is going to have a small part in the movie also.Seriously, when I found out I screamed for 10 minutes straight. In a good way. It'll be his first part in an American movie ^-~
