Beard of the Day


I first discovered Simon Pegg in the most excellent movie Shaun of the Dead. I was on a "girl's weekend" with my mom and sis, and we were lounging in our hotel room watching endless hours of television. This movie came on and my sister said...."Oh, you're gonna love this one. It's right up your alley." Well hell, I was in LOVE...a funny, brilliant, quirky zombie movie. I was instantly hooked on the comedic couple of Pegg and Nick Frost. If you haven't seen this movie, it's a freakin' fantastic classic...you gotta see it! Also, Pegg's version of Scotty in the updated Star Trek was wicked good. I thought he stole the damned show.

Well, onto our beard critique. One, this photo is great because it totally captures his boyish good looks as well as his naughty sense of humor. I love red-heads...just think time-travellin' Scottish warlords with legs like tree trunks, thick, red beards, those luscious accents...hear me? Well, Pegg's got a British accent and a nicely groomed beard and stache. Hot Fuzz for sure. (Hee hee...sorry, that's a horrible joke but I totally couldn't help myself). Anyhoo, there's something sexy about a guy who knows how to make people laugh.

Be on the lookout for Paul, a new movie with Pegg and Frost, coming out this spring. It looks absolutely hilarious. Here's the link for the youtube preview...check it out!

Happy Hairy Friday to All! And Happy New Year!!!!

I'm very happy to see your variety for the bearded men. You're right, laughter can be very sexy. And Paul looks really good, my husband has been excited since they first announced he loves those two.

Penelope said...

Hi Lindsay! Happy New Year! I like a variety of beards...well-trimmed, scruffy, lumber-jack, etc etc. :)

A very happy New Year to you! Hmmm - he has interesting looks. Cute with the beard. I did love Sean of the Dead.

Penelope said...

Hi Julia!....He is such a cutie! Ever since I read A Virgin River Xmas I'm obsessed with red beards. Have you read that one yet? Soooooo good....Ian, the hero, is scrum-diddly-icious!
