And now, as if that wasn't much, much more than enough, The Hollywood Reporter revealed this morning that Muniz is set to star in My Sexiest Year, a comedy-drama (or, as the execs like to say, "dramedy") about "a young man [yes, that's Freddie] and his never-to-be-forgotten romantic encounter with a top international model." (In case you're wondering, they've hired Amber Valletta to really stretch her acting muscles by playing said supermodel.)
Ok, first of all, yawn. Can we call a moratorium on the "homely teenage boy is deflowered by impossibly hot older (usually foreign) woman" movies, please? Second, what is it about Frankie Muniz that gets him hired for these roles? Malcolm in the Middle fans, help me understand the guy's irresistible appeal to people casting movies about teen sex. Seriously, I want to know.
