I was watching American Gigilo (1980) today, and it was evident to me that Richard Gere's character in the film, high class male prostitute, Julian Kaye, is far, far cooler than Dr. Ken.
Consider this . . .
Julian works out by hanging upside down, shirtless in his posh L.A. apartment using hand weights while listening to tapes to learn other languages (he speaks five).
Kenneth worked out today while watching American Gigilo.
Julian has a closet filled with expensive suits, ties, and shirts made by all the top designers.
Kenneth sometimes uses gym shorts when he runs out of boxers, and many of his t-shirts were free for playing on sports teams in recreational men's leagues.
Julian is framed for a murder he didn't commit.
Kenneth was framed for taking a bite out a piece of chicken and putting it back in the fridge (a crime he didn't commit).
How about you, Seven Readers? Have you ever tried to live up to a fictional character's reputation?
