This one took me awhile to figure out, but it doesn’t make the Coinkydink or Coinkdonk any less powerful (and they’re not very powerful to begin with)…
With Actor! Jared Leto out there fulfilling his Jordan Catalano duties as the lead singer in his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, I suddenly realized that his band name was a hybrid of two other Actors!‘s band names that came before:
- Russell Crowe rocked out the number angle with his group, 30 Odd Foot of Grunts
- Keanu Reeves kept it chill in space with his band, Dogstar
So… weird, huh? Slightly. I mean, Kevin Costner, Julitte Lewis, and Jada Pinkett Smith’s band names (Modern West, The Licks, and Wicked Wisdom disrespectively) don’t bear any similarity to the others or each other.
So I posed a question to my co-workers and friends… besides each being in a band, what do these three Actors! have in common?
(answer after the jump) They all co-starred with Megan Fox’s predecessor (and Jennifer’s Body wannabe)…
(SIDENOTE: She still stars in the dreams of my heart. I imagine standing up on stage with my band, 30 Noisy Comets, as I croon her with lyrics and music and stuff.)
(BONUS COINKYDINK OR COINKYDONK: According to IMDb…
In three of her movies (Dark City (1998), Requiem for a Dream (2000), and House of Sand and Fog (2003)), she appears standing at the end of a pier in a striking image. All three directors created the shots for different reasons, and they are not an homage or reference to each other, just an unlikely coincidence. [See? – Ed.]
