When you're a Jet you're the swingin'est thing

Vanity Fair just posted a series of photos celebrating the return of West Side Story to Broadway. It's a lovely photoshoot, pitch-perfect to the 1961 movie version, but Broadway isn't really our shtick here at Tweenage, no matter how many times I try to trick Becky into making it so. So why am I reposting this picture here?

Well, it's hard to see at this size and so I urge you to click on the picture and see it at full size (or check out the original photoshoot), but the blonde in the blue dress, dead center, is our beloved Tizz, and the goofily grinning Jet third from the right is our beloved (okay, my beloved - Becky doesn't care) Drake Bell. We've also got borderline-tweenish stars like Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian), Sean Faris (he starred in my guilty pleasure movie Yours, Mine, and Ours with Drake Bell and Miranda Cosgrove), Robert "RPattz" Pattinson (Twilight, poor thing), and Brittany Snow (Hairspray), plus Minka Kelly from our beloved (okay, Becky's beloved - I don't care) Friday Night Lights. So it's relevant! Or at least relevant enough to give me an excuse to post this pretty, pretty picture.

Since you're promoting this, I thought I'd check to see if you guys had heard about The Adventures of Food Boy. Lucas Grabeel is the main actor (finally!), and it also has Brittany Curran in it too. It looks pretty funny!

I thought it was a very pretty shoot, but I complained on my LJ that I couldn't figure out what the point of it was, as it a) mentioned the upcoming Broadway production, but didn't feature any of the performers or discuss it any further and b) featured "celebrities" who are not exactly fresh and of the moment. I mean, J.Lo's great and all, but Chris Evans? RPattz is arguably the most talked-about star in the shoot and he's completely relegated to the background. (That said, I give them props for giving RPattz such ridiculous hair.)
So it's pretty, but superfluous. Kind of like Zefron.
