‘The Back-Up Plan’ art: Improper use of Alex O’Loughlin

Searching for some articles, I came across this little fun post about The Back-Up Plan on PopWatch from way back when, and thought it was quite amusing, but also maybe true. 😛

Alex O’Loughlin couldn’t very well be shirtless on a poster for The Back-Up Plan, his April 2010 romantic comedy with Jennifer Lopez. Could he? And his 50-50 split of the frame with Lopez, who returns to the genre for the first time since 2005’s Monster-in-Law, is actually quite impressive and a fine testament to his loyal female fan base. But would it have been asking too much to see his entire face?

My Thoughts

  • I think the second poster can look intimate, but it is rather strange that she is hiding nearly his whole (gorgeous) face with her hand. 😕 Maybe something like this one could have worked better?

  • I would have love to see the other pictures that were taken during that photoshoot for the poster pictures  – there must have been some awesome ones.
  • And just because Hawaii Five-0 hiatus has been far too long, we added some mindless fun, with a little poll. 😛
