I've seen Johnny Whitworth in exactly one thing -- Empire Records. No, scratch that. He was also in Valentine, the terrible David Boreanaz movie, but I had everything except the name of the film wiped from my memory. Anyhow, you might remember Whitworth as A.J., the deep artist who didn't need to explain his art and had to tell Corey he loved her by 1:37. While the movie was not cinematically stellar achievement, his was one role I watched with amusement. He was too damned sweet with his floppy hair and big eyes to be a deep artist, and he seemed too asexual to *really* have the hots for Corey. Nevertheless, I've missed him.

He's done some CSI appearances and other blips recently, and now he's joined Liongate's upcoming cowboy flick, 3:10 to Yuma as a member of Ben Wade's (Russell Crowe) gang. Cinematical has been followingthefilmsinceFebruary, if you need to catch up. Honestly, at this moment, I can't think of anything funnier than Mr. Whitworth in some chaps and a cowboy hat, although some more recent pictures show him having a little edge. However, if the cowboy world is not your thing, you can also catch a glimpse of him in the upcoming Factory Girl as Silver George. He's pretty far down on the cast list, so keep your eyes peeled.
