Hey kids! So. This was going to be a Hot Canadian, because his dad is Canadian (and Canadian never lets go. Like Jack.), but he was, unfortunately, born in Los Angeles. However, he remains amazing. He is Sasha Jenson. You may know him as Don, the lovable football player who only thinks about getting laid and who wears overalls, in Dazed and Confused. If you don't know him from that, you probably don't know him. THAT IS IRRELEVANT. He's great. And PRACTICALLY CANADIAN!!!! Here's a picture to jog your memory:

Yeah, that's the worst picture ever, but YOU try finding a picture of him. The last thing he did was in fucking 93, way pre-internet. It's impossible. So here's him, in Dazed and Confused, with Matthew McConaughey (or however you spell that). I should be commended just for finding a picture of Matty with his shirt on.


Far more importantly than this hippy nonsense (to me and anyone who loves tv/movies that should matter but don't), he was one of the popular kids who got vampired in the Buffy movie that pre-empted that (MUCH LOVED) series. It starred (in case you don't remember due to a massive head trauma or being lame) Kristy Swanson and Luke Perry. CAN YOU IMAGINE ANYTHING BETTER??? Anyways, he totes tried to kill her at prom, and he got his heart stabbed. In a hot way. He's a part of two movies that do, or should, define my generation, and I'm pretty upset (at this point tonight while sort of fucked up and watching dazed and confused on HBO) that he didn't achieve more success. HOW MUCH SHOULD HE BE ON SOME LAW AND ORDER REDUX? He'd be a great truancy cop.


So he hasn't been in anything since 2003, and honestly, he hasn't been in anything we've heard of since Dazed and Confused. But let's be honest. He was hot in those overalls, and that's hard to do. He had great hair, and I really think that had he been given a role as the hilarious neighbor in... say... a sitcom starring kirk cameron as the older brother of Devon Sawa (AND WHERE THE FUCK DID THAT HOT ASS KID GO??) or something, he could have been major. Or, as my friend just suggested, as Eric on Boy Meets World, in an alternate universe where the guy who actually played Eric never existed. I'M JUST SAYING.

So. Sasha Jenson. Underappreciated, totally hot... and TOTALLY (almost) Canadian. I demand a movie.
