Birthday Battle! Chris Pine Vs. Dylan O’Brien

Two men enter, one man leaves

Chris Pine has been acting for over a decade (remember Princess Diaries 2: A Royal Engagement?), but in some ways, he’s always been a part of our lives, since his dad is Robert Pine, who has a vast resume, including years wrangling Ponch and Jon (and to a lesser extent, Jon’s replacement Bruce) on ChiPs.

Meanwhile, Dylan O’Brien is one of the keys to the success of MTV’s Teen Wolf, as he brings humor and intelligence to what could be just a sidekick role. But he’s expanded his fame, and is now the star of the burgeoning Maze Runner franchise.

Both men celebrate birthdays today (Chris is 35, Dylan is 24), and because a coincidence like this can’t be ignored, they have been recruited to duke it out in our Birthday Battle!

Both guys will compete in five categories. Who will emerge the victor? Who will take the crown? Watch as they take their best shots.


CRYING

Dylan wins this one hands down. Chris can make even an ugly cry hot, but Dylan has perfected the single tear dropping artistically down the cheek

WINNER: Dylan


SHOWERING

Until we actually see Dylan naked in a shower, he will never win this category. Something to consider, Dylan.

WINNER: Chris

Chris bared his, but there’s something … special … about Dylan’s posterior. If only we could put our finger on it.

WINNER: Dylan


SAME-SEXING

Dylan loves a bromance, and loves to tease, but Chris actually played a gay character in Surrender Dorothy.

WINNER: Chris


ICONIC ROLE

Dylan has made Stiles into a scene-stealing delight, but Chris is James T. Kirk, and helped revitalize a dying franchise.

WINNER: Chris


So, after the dust has settled, who walks out victorious?

But really, in a Birthday Battle, don’t we all win?
