Title: Marty / Wayne Wilcox Appreciation
Post by: hovercraftlove on November 24, 2005, 11:44:12 pm
Hey, I'm new. I just saw RENT tonight (man I am probably LATE on this) but MARTY is in it! and he SINGS! and he has curly hair! And clearly, will father my children.

I am a loyal loyal LOYAL Dean fan but suddenly, I feel for Marty and hate Logan and Rory when she's with him even more! I'm no Jess fan but thank GOD he showed up. Such a brilliant way to plan a break up, kudos to Amy Sherman Palladino (or whoever is deserving of the kudos.)

So - my question - what on EARTH is marty's real name?

My name is Haley, by the way. See ya'll later!

His name is Wayne Wilcox (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1661508/).

And I really liked Marty, he was cute and kind and a good friend to Rory.

Welcome Haley. Perhaps you can change the title of this thread into "Marty Appreciation Thread"? Just click on the button Modify.

Oooops...bad move.  Especially considering that I used to go on and on about how much I wanted Rory to dump Logan and go out with Marty.  That's not really relevant anymore, because I think Marty is gone forever.  But still...bad Lacey!  Bad old forum people!  >:(

I hope he isn't gone forever. Since Rory goes back to Yale, he can be there as well.

I hope that when Rory goes back to Yale that Marty will be there and him and Rory can be friends or posibley more than friends because he was so nice to Rory.

I'm all in favour of Marty too! She needs a nice, decent bloke, not possessive, smart, and sweet.

So what is this I hear about a Marty Appreciation thread that already existed? I think it should be resurrected. Or, at least, everyone should post every Marty picture in existence because googling and imdb have LET ME DOWN and I don't know what to do with myself!

So on with the Marty pictures? I think so.

Oh yeah, I hope we see Marty at Yale too! He was such a good friend to  Rory.

Maybe when Rory finds an apartment it will be with Marty!

Yay the Marty thread is back up. :)

I liked Marty, he was a nice guy. ASP said she would get Wayne back if she could but it's hard because he is on the east coast of America at the moment.

I really hope we see him again now that Rory is back at Yale.

Post by: gilmore-girl on November 28, 2005, 12:41:11 pm
Even if Rory and Marty never get together it would be cool to have him around more. Just as a friend if anything.

Someone please tell me about Marty!!! Who was he and what season was he in, and what did he have to  do with the show etc. etc.

Thanks! :)

Marty was in season 4 and 5. He's also a Yalie ans was a good friend to Rory.

And would you mind removing some of the smilies from your signature? They are kind of annoying.

I so want to see Marty and Rory dating.
They look good together, and Marty makes great boyfriend
He is kind and ı dont know.. He didnt have any flaw so far...
He is near perfect at least better than Logan
Title: Re: MARTY! appreciation thread!
Post by: TheHumanCoffeePot on November 30, 2005, 01:44:22 pm
Sadly, I think Marty was slowly written out.  *sniffle*

But...if he did come back, I would want him to be Rory's BOYfriend...not friend.  I'm sick of that.
Title: Re: MARTY! appreciation thread!
Post by: Erin on November 30, 2005, 02:15:08 pm
I agree about Marty not coming back as just Rory's friend; I don't want to have to see any more of Rory treating Marty like crap.  If Marty comes back, I want it to be as Rory's boyfriend.  I'm not going to hold my breath for that, though. 
Title: Re: MARTY! appreciation thread!
Post by: Kukalaka on November 30, 2005, 02:28:03 pm
Marty would be right perfect as a boyfriend now, after Logan. Because he's totally opposite and he really cares.  And he deserves more than how Rory treated him. I never saw what Rory saw in Logan...
Title: Re: MARTY! appreciation thread!
Post by: White Onyx on November 30, 2005, 02:30:41 pm
I thought Rory and Marty had chemistry, but well after what Rory pulled him...I wouldn't want him to be the next guy that never got over Rory. What is she supergirl? So maybe she should do some pining after her friend...take up Luke's old hobby.  ;) ;D Maybe he can give her some pointers.

not too good i guess
Title: Re: MARTY! appreciation thread!
Post by: youngb on December 01, 2005, 09:02:36 am
marty was the best guy who liked Rory so far... He is better than Logan, Dean and considering how he treats rory and shows his love and interest, ı think he was a little bit better than Jess too... (Jess fans, dont be mad, my opinion!)
Whatever, they were good, believe me!
Title: Re: MARTY! appreciation thread!
Post by: TheHumanCoffeePot on December 03, 2005, 06:14:54 am
I'm a Jess fan, but I'll come right out and say that Jess was a jerk a lot of times.  The difference between him and Logan is that Jess actually cared about Rory.  I don't get that vibe from Logan.  He seems like he's just in it for the sex, which sounds harsh, but...eh.

Post by: Gilmore_Lover on December 21, 2005, 12:16:23 pm
OMFG!!!! I can not believe Marty was in RENT!!! I had no idea that he was going to be!! And he can sing too! I loved that....if no one remembers, he plays Gordon in the life support meetings....and he sings!
Title: Re: MARTY! appreciation thread!
Post by: Kukalaka on December 30, 2005, 11:44:17 am
This week, I watch an epi from season 5, aww, and Marty was in it. And I fell in love with him again... It was the episode when Rory fell asleep on his bed.
Title: Re: MARTY! appreciation thread!
Post by: nikki on January 08, 2006, 04:18:41 pm
I absolutely love Marty too (and have recently added him as a character in the RPG thread).  I have missed him so much since he hasn't been on all season (which I understand... If Rory's not at Yale there's not much opportunity to work in Marty).  I truly hope that with Rory's return to Yale we will see more of Marty.  It's uplifting to hear that ASP would like to work him in, schedules permitting.

I personally see Marty as Rory's Luke.  He's stable, kind, smart (he did get into Yale), funny, unselfish in his friendship with Rory, giving, caring, sensitive, reliable, patient, loyal, trustworthy, humble/not egotistical, helpful... I could draw parallels forever :).  He's the one who belongs with Rory longterm.

I too loved the scene where Rory fell asleep in Marty's room.  I could be too overanalytical, but I think that scene has an important hidden message in it.  For a girl to fall asleep in a guy's room, she must have felt safe.  While I'm sure she didn't consciously think "I trust Marty, so it's safe for me to fall asleep," that's the message that her falling asleep sends.  It just shows a deep level of trust and security in the friendship.  Think about how much Rory trusts Logan.  On several occasions she's passively suggested that Logan was flirting with other girls when they were officially going out.  While she enjoyed the fun side of his playboy personality, she doesn't trust him because of the playboy personality.

About Marty being Rory's boyfriend, I have some torn feelings.
1) I worry that realistically the writers won't make them a couple because he isn't exciting.  I think we have to admit that GG writing has been leaning more towards the sensationalism/soapopera crap to gain more viewers.  Jess and Logan were exciting and stirred up a lot of drama.  I don't see Marty has fitting into that category, so he might get overlooked by the writers.

2) I don't think I want to see Rory take Marty as her boyfriend... YET.  I think Rory is still incredibly immature in relationships and has a long way to go befor she deserves Marty (yes I said it... <ducks from tomatoes>).  Plus I wouldn't want them to throw Rory and Marty together before they bring closure to the Logan break up.  It would really suck if Logan showed up and goes "I didn't think we broke up, that was just a misunderstanding on Honor's part" and Rory goes "Oh, oops.  Bye Marty."

3) I don't want the writers to play the Ross and Rachel game where once Rory sees how great Marty is, he is with someone else or claims not to be interested in Rory, and so on back and forth.  It's been done, writers.

4) What I really want is Rory to finish straightening up, realize that what she's looking for in a guy isn't just a fun good time, but a real mature, caring, nurturing sort of relationship, which I believe Marty can provide.

yes!  i soo agree.  marty is the best, hes sweet, hes got lots in common with rory, and he is just.... well.... marty.  lol.

i mean, i personally am a milo fan, but i have to admit that marty is probably my favourite choice for rory.

OMGosh! Marty can sing! and really, really well! (if anyone wants to know its the song called "life support" and he sings right at the beginning-check it out @ itunes-i think the excerpt of the song they play is him)
anywhoo, i want a boyfriend like Marty, hes sweet, kinda quirky, but adorable, and i love how rory feels so comfortable around him (like when she falls asleep on his bed) i really want that in a boyfriend! Cant wait to see him back!

Post by: rorylovesjess on August 24, 2006, 02:59:27 pm
I'll admit I'm Literati, but I have to say, I'd pick Marty over Logan in a heartbeat!!! Marty is a sweet, funny, cool guy, aAnd Rory has no idea what she is missing. I love the "naked guy" scene. I couldn't believe how in the episode when Rory and Marty go hang out with Logan and his friends and they mock Marty because he doesn't have much money. I couldn't believe those jerks!!! And that scene outside "I can't go inside, I can't leave, so here I stand" made me want to go berserk on Logan and his friends. And then Rory just crushes his feelings afterward and like an hour later sleep with Logan!!! I was all "what is the world coming too???"

Every single guy rory has been interested in has liked her and pined over her. As much as I love Marty, I don't want him to be pulled in. I want him back, but as a friend alone.

i love marty, hes so cute in a nerdy sort of way. I love that quote in Emily Says Hello when he says: "Once i found out my father wasnt my real father, we got along real well." Marty is ahdorable and he can sing! yay! lol. Wayne Wilcox has a great voice.

so, i like just put this together, but has anyone noticed that marty is alot like luke: they both are (were i guess) friends with a gilmore girl, and liked them from the beginning, and were kinda ignored in a "like" way, and had to watch them go after other guys. Thankfully with luke he confessed his feelings and got the girl. Marty tried but rory blew him off (i still cant believe it! they were perfect for eachother) because of that, im a true Logan Loather...

I agree, they are kinda similar in that way. They always want to like just say how they feel but can never get that right moment or get the courage to say it and they watch their Gilmore girls go from guy to guy and them never be one of those guys. Rory shoulda gave Marty a chance instead of stupid Logan. >:( That makes me so mad, he was so nice, and she just never gave him a freakin day!

he WAS really nice, but she already had a nice guy: Dean. i love marty to death, but i think another nice guy would be repetitive.
Title: Re: Marty/Wayne Willcox Appreciation Thread
Post by: rorylovesjess on September 07, 2006, 04:19:52 pm
Well, I think Dean kinda of lost the niceness factor...and besides shouldn't we be rooting for a "nice" guy for Rory? I mean I love Jess, and I love him with Rory, but he was a "bad" guy and Logan is a "AWFUL" guy, so I think by the end o fthe series, Rory should have someone who can care about her, and I don't really mind if it is repetitive, because I find Marty a "funny" guy to begin with, and if Rory can't be with Jess, Marty is really the only perfect choice...and he is sooo cute!!!! :D

Marty was such a great friend to Rory and would have been a great boyfriend
Title: MARTY!
Post by: anastagee on September 10, 2006, 06:48:43 pm
Rory REALLY needs to take a good look at the boy she's chosen to be with and realize that he's just a rich jerk who has anger/jealousy issues, a history of cheating and fooling around majorly in the past, and who is just plain wrong for her. He's been a completely bad influence for her. Sure, she's had some good times through him, she's become more adventurous, I guess, but the things that have happenned in her life in relation to him (and the Huntzburger family as a whole) have put Rory in aweful situations. Rory questioned her ability to write for crying out loud! For all the years we have watched Rory grow up, she has ALWAYS wanted to be a journalist. She wrote for the Chilton newspaper, the Yale Daily News, and she always knew that she wanted to be a journalist- until Mr.Hotshot jerk Huntzberger showed up... really, doesn't Rory deserve better?

I say BRING MARTY BACK!

Marty was kind, understanding, genuine, honest, and he really liked Rory. You could see it in his eyes (great acting, by the way-- I'd take you over Logan anyday, Marty).

Rory deserves someone who will treat her with respect, dignity, kindness, love- and she should be able to be with someone who's loyalty and affection she doesn't have to question.

C'mon, Rory, enough with the bad-boy chase, already. Catch the boy who's been falling for you all along.

Did anyone else see Wayne on Law & Order, playing a Kevin Federline-esque white rapper? It was hysterical! Especially since I know him as Marty, and the two characters are sooo incredibly different. He did a good job.


"L&O" Rips Britney, K-Fed from the Headlines

by Gina Serpe
Sep 12, 2006, 8:50 AM PT



A talent-challenged wannabe rapper who's built a career on the back of his gum-chomping, seatbelt-averse celeb wife?

Stop us if you've heard this one before.
 
According to the producers of Law & Order, the preceding set-up is fictional and does not depict any actual person or event. Apparently, they've lapsed on their subscription to Us Weekly.

Dick Wolf's long-running procedural will kick off its 17th season with just such a couple--a fictionalized pair of suspects who bears a striking resemblance to Kevin Federline and Britney Spears.

In the show, the couple, J-Train (Wayne Wilcox) and Sky Sweet (Barbara King), bear several similarities to K-Fed and Spears, both in terms of storyline and physical appearance.

Hopefully, that's where the parallels stop.

In the episode titled "Fame," J-Train becomes the prime suspect in the murder of an NYPD detective and gets arrested when the killing is connected to incriminating photos of his paparazzi-hounded starlet wife (she's snapped dropping the baby in Central Park and then leaving the kid alone in a car while she runs into a coffee shop, per the New York Post), forcing the oversaturated couple even further into the media spotlight.

from www.eonline.com

I should probably post this in Show and Cast Member News, but the article isn't really all that Wayne-related, so I thought here would be more appropriate..

I liked Marty when I first saw him.

I liked how Richard seemed to like him when he first met him at the Yale game. Richard doesn't like to many people like that instantly.

I also thought that Marty was like Luke in a way that he has been pining her like Luke pined for Lorelai. I just wish that they could of ended up togther.

I always liked Marty and thought that he would have been better for Rory then Logan, but it wouldn't have made for good episodes.  There wouldn't have been all the conflict and kind of extreme scenes.  I do like Wayne Wilcox and would like to see him in more things and singing more.  He sings really great.  I really love Rent and have seen it many times.  To this day, though, I wonder if I said MARTY out loud in the theater when I first saw him in it.  I know that I sure was thinking it.

OMG please tell me we didn't forget to re-erect the marty thread.  
Giggles. That certainly deserves a Dirty!

I thought Rory and Marty had chemistry, but well after what Rory pulled him...I wouldn't want him to be the next guy that never got over Rory. What is she supergirl? So maybe she should do some pining after her friend...take up Luke's old hobby.  ;) ;D Maybe he can give her some pointers.
I completely agree! Rory is no siren, so what's with all these boys falling at her feet? And what's with them not being able to get over her? Sheesh! I too love the idea of Rory pining after someone for once.

This week, I watch an epi from season 5, aww, and Marty was in it. And I fell in love with him again... It was the episode when Rory fell asleep on his bed.
That was the episode that really won me over for Marty. The fact that she could sit that intimately with him and fall asleep on his bed meant she was so comfortable with him. I know that's also a sign that she wasn't attracted to him (because she wouldn't have done that if she had been) but to me it was indicative of something more meaningful - how much she trusted him. The best foundation for a friendship, which is the best foundation of a relationship, IMO. That scene was what made me go back and look at their easy friendship we saw in a couple episodes of Season 4 and wished they had started something then. Oh, look at that! Apparently I'm repeating myself (http://www.gilmoregirls.org/forum/index.php?topic=8880.msg18709#msg18709).

I actually wish the show hadn't made Marty fall for Rory in Season 5, and DEFINITELY wish they hadn't turned him into Pod!Marty in season 7. Since I was so dissatisfied with how the show handled Marty, I decided to rewrite history and wrote my own fanfic of how Rory and Marty's story could have gone. I posted about it here (http://www.gilmoregirls.org/forum/index.php?topic=7715.msg477112#msg477112) in the FanFiction thread.

Guess what!

I met Marty!!!

Wayne Wilcox is in The Normal Heart on Broadway, which I just saw this past weekend. Afterward, I got a picture with him and I told him I rooted for Marty the whole time (I was too shy to fess up about the fanfic). I brought Season 4 with me for him to sign. In his autograph he wrote, "Thanks for rooting for me." I even got to talk to him about the play a little. He was so nice and sweet. It was such a great experience!

That is so great that you got to meet him.  I wondered what he had been doing.  That is cute what he wrote.
