post #46 of 51
He does. He has the boyish grin and other character traits down to the tee as well.

Who makes his shirts?

Image in the sense of 'how well you dress'? I disagree -- I think acting is one profession where dress is least important.

yea, image is important, but not so much the sartorial kind. More like the "vibe" kind, like are you a badboy or the boy next door. Good clothes are probably more important to an agent then his client, except on the red carpet at the Oscars

Think about this: when was the last time we had a young actor that didn't look like some punk? Even the "boy next door" type guys look like frat boys gone wrong. So I think that if a young actor (like Brandon) takes the initiative and wears suits, nice shirts, and ties, we should applaud that he actually has enough respect for the public to dress up for public appearances. Good clothes are increasingly important to the 18-30 year old demographic, and I think he reflects that.

But dressing well has to be something the actor in question wants to express. Otherwise wearing suits will be the same as wearing a set costume, and his discomfort will show thru in the lack of attention to the details that go with dressing well. But I'm all for actors dressing sharply/well, it's even more impressive when that person has a genuine interest in doing so, not just because his publicist thinks it's a good idea.

Agreed. But in this case the actor in question does want to express it. If he didn't, he wouldn't wear the clothes he wears. The actors don't work for the publicists, the publicists work for the actors. The publicist might suggest something, but that's about it. Usually, (as in this case) the actor decides at least the direction they want to go in, and then things go from there.
