|Lukas Haas in the 1988 scary movie, Lady in White.
Lukas Haas is my "little" brother's age, so growing up it felt wrong to think he was cute. He had these adorable oversized big ears, dark chocolate eyes and an awesome bowl haircut. Now that we're adults, I can admit that I've always fancied his freaky good looks. Freaky meaning he isn't smokin' hot like his old pal Leonardo Dicaprio, he's more off-beat cute. Girls know what this means.
|Eight-year-old Lukas Haas as
a child star in Witness.
I sort of stopped following Lukas Haas' career, although I managed to catch all of his films from Alan & Naomi to Mars Attacks to Brick to Johns -- this kid has been in like a million movies! A while back, I was watching Death Cab for Cutie videos on YouTube and quickly realized Lukas Haas is the "other guy" in their "Cath" video. Lukas Haas has also appeared in several different music videos and has been busy making his own music as well.
In 1988, Lukas starred in one of those movies that scared the hell out of me. It took place in the 1960s and was called Lady in White. Anyone remember this film? It also featured my other fave kid star, Jason Presson.
