Swarez
Reykjavik, Iceland

As a burned out pop star Swarez turned his back on the soul sucking existens that was the music biz, and his label had just dropped him, to focus on more important things; blogging about movies. In the beginning he pestered Mr. Brown with tidbits from the Icelandic movie scene until he was asked to join the team as a contributing writer and to be the most handsome one on the team. He was only recently upstaged in the latter category when Ryland Aldrich came bursting in with his dreamy looks. Swarez vows revenge on Aldrich ever since. AAAAALLDRICHHH!
