Ryan Reynolds is hotter than ever right now—and we're not just talking about his career. Or his love life. The actor, who recently celebrated his 36th birthday, seems to be getting physically sexier by the minute. Many of us have been swooning over him since Finder's Fee (guilty as charged!), but for those of you who have been living under a rock, Ryan is drop dead gorgeous—and we think that's something worth celebrating. Naturally, we thought the most appropriate way to pay tribute to this sexy piece of mancandy was to dedicate an entire gallery to his hotness. Shirt on? Shirt off? Sure, some might have a preference, but Ryan looks so good in whatever »
Hollywood's a tough town. Not everyone survives. But it's safe to say that Jeff Probst is not only keeping his head above water, but is pretty much walking on air.
Who the heck are we talking about you ask? You may not know his name, but you definitely recognize his face: Probst is the perennial host of "Survivor," a gig that has already garnered him four (yes, four) Emmys and set him up to possibly have his own talk show this fall.
Being the go-getter that he is, however, that's not enough to keep him busy—which might be why, a full decade after his 2002 directorial debut, the thriller "Finder's Fee," Probst is gearing up to direct his second feature film.

Kiss Me begins shooting next month in Los Angeles. »
Jeff Probst has hosted Survivor, the ancestor of all modern reality television, for twelve years straight. It's essentially all he's known for now, with most people forgetting there ever was a time where he did things other than hang out on tropical islands and snuff out people's hopes and dreams. Before the ubiquitous reality show turned into the cushiest job on the planet, though, Probst did spend some time behind the camera. He directed the 2001 indie flick Finder's Fee, which ended up being a nice stepping stone for star Ryan Reynolds, though it wasn't long before Probst left the filmmaking scene and returned to his hosting duties. Well now Probst is looking to get back into the world of filmmaking with Kiss Me starring Sarah Bolger (In America, The...

You may only know Jeff Probst as the long-time host of CBS's Survivor, but he also happens to be a filmmaker. Back in 2001 he wrote and directed a small film called Finder's Fee, a thriller starring Ryan Reynolds, James Earl Jones, Matthew Lillard and Robert Forster. Since then he has hosted 357 episodes of survivor over 12 seasons and hasn't made a movie since. It would seem now that the bug has gotten him again, because he's ready to return behind the camera. THR has learned that Probst is now attached to direct a film titled Kiss Me that will star John Corbett and Sarah Bolger. Described as an indie drama, the story follows a young girl (Bolger) who is forced to wear a back brace due to a case of scoliosis and must deal with "her mother, her best friend and a married man (Corbett) whose kids she babysits."

The tribe has spoken -- and apparently it wants to see more from Jeff Probst, director extraordinaire. (Groan, but still.)
Probst -- best known as the hat-wearing host of the long-running CBS reality series "Survivor" -- is ready to make his first film in eleven years with "Kiss Me." The indie drama focuses on a young girl (Sarah Bolger, "The Tudors") who wears a back brace for her scoliosis and must navigate relationships with her family, friends and the older man (John Corbett) she works for as a babysitter. (That should go well.)
This might seem like a totally random departure for Probst, but the Emmy winner has previous directing experience. He helmed the 2001 movie "Finder's Fee," which starred James Earl Jones, Matthew Lillard and an up-and-coming actor named Ryan Reynolds.
"Kiss Me" is set to begin filming in Los Angeles this February. Expect it to hit the festival circuit sometime next year. »

Besides launching a daytime talk show and hosting two more seasons of Survivor, Jeff Probst will direct his second feature film. His first, Finder's Fee (rent and watch for $3), was critically acclaimed. His new film is Kiss Me, which Variety describes as a film about "a teenage girl through the physical and emotional growing pains of adolescence." It was written by Deadwood and Lost writer Liz Sarnoff and stars John Corbett and Sarah Bolger. »
