Who's your Mark Trail? Clockwise from top left: Jon Hamm, Rupert Everett, Jake Gyllenhaal, Stephen Colbert, Tom Cruise and Ben Affleck.

I'd go for Steve Carrell if you can go to a round two of voting. I did vote for Hamm, because he looks best for the role best among these choices.

PS Where is Aria? I miss her lately.
