Leading Man Tournament Week 7 Update
So far 14 votes have been cast (and this is actually the first time I’m looking at them so it’ll be a surprise for everyone). Let’s see where this week’s crop of men are ranking right now.
Wow, leading the pack with six votes already is Mr. Tom Hanks! Hanks isn’t the pretty boy of the decade, or of the group so I’m happy he’s gotten such a huge turnout and he should as his body of work in the 1990s is legendary.
The requisite second-place tie is in effect between the two actors I assumed would be duking it out in this tournament. Seem they’re squaring off for a silver medal. With three votes apiece you have Leonardo Dicaprio
and Johnny Depp.
Third place at the moment with two votes is Will Smith.
And in the “I have no votes at all” category is Brad Pitt. Yes, one half of Brangelina is at the bottom with no vote (honestly I wasn’t rooting for him so no disappointment from me this week).
I’ll be back on Thursday with a final poll update. Keep on voting!

Tough call this week! I had to give Pitt a vote, though. His work in the 90s was too strong to not get any recognition.
