If you ve seen a Marvel movie, read a culture magazine or website in the last five years, or watched Chris Pine s scintillating musical monologue on Saturday Night Live about this very subject, you ve heard of The Chris Wars, an ongoing debate to determine which Hollywood Chris (especially of the blond superhero variety) is #1 in our hearts and minds. But what is a Chris? What makes Chrises different from Ryans (Gosling, Reynolds) or Jons (Krasinski, Hamm)? Why do we feel compelled to compare Chrises? Can non-Chrises have Chris energy? What happens if a Chris lets us down? And most importantly: will we ever agree on a #1 Chris, or are we doomed to remain a divided nation? Nichole Perkins and Bim Adewunmi, the beloved co-hosts of Thirst Aid Kit, a podcast dedicated to Hollywood hunks and the reasons we love them, explore all of these questions and more with dedicated essays to each of the Chrises in their personal Core Four: Chris Evans, Chris Pine, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Messina, as well as a bonus essay to all the Chrises they ve loved before. Series Overview: For Your Consideration is a series dedicated to pop culture icons who might not dominate the awards show circuit but are worthy of critical reconsideration for their notable influence on our culture. Each book is comprised of five critical essays, as well as fun extras that riff off the fandom of each celebrity.
