Beard of the Day


The History Channel has a new show called Hatfields and McCoys, with Kevin Costner as William Anderson Hatfield. Here's a fun little tidbit about his epic beard....

"It went on one hair at a time, singly laid in," he says of the old-man whiskers he wears for Hatfields and McCoys..."My chin would get poked and prodded for an hour every morning....I'd play music, I'd talk to people, but it never got any easier. Fortunately, it's the best damned beard I've ever had."

(From TV Guide, Inside History's Epic Miniseries Hatfields & McCoys May 28, 2012)

I'd have to agree with Kevin. Damned fine beard.

Happy Beardy Friday,
Penelope

I gotta see this.
Great choice.
He's been looking great.

Hi Juju! He always looks good "western-style"....he was made for those roles. Except his accent is too modern. But he LOOKS the part!

Yikes, I'm not sure what is happening to me, but older men and beards. Ick! I don't let The Herbal Husband grow one! I'm going off to my corner now. Have a great weekend, Penny! xxoo Nancy

Penelope said...

Hee heee.....Nancy! I don't think too many men have a "Hatfield"-style beard anymore.

Have a nice weekend! :^)

Loved this miniseries! (And the beards were pretty awesome too.)

The house hunk is a Hatfield on his mama's side. And that is a damn fine beard...

I like him better with the beard, but could not bring myself to watch the Hatfields and McCoys. Too sad, too violent and too dirty.

I know neither of our teams is in the NHL playoffs, but those guys have some pretty Hatfieldish beards going on, but most of them are cute! Bye for now.

Oh Kevin... He's apparently not a naturally hairy man.
Now I am forced to think of this:

Hi Jo! I haven't watched it yet, but it looks great.

Penelope said...

Anny......Really? That is so cool! I'll bet he has some big attitude...hee hee!

Penelope said...

Casey....Sometimes those shows are too violent for me, too. I'll have to read a synopsis first before I decide if I can take it.

Penelope said...

Nancy....the hockey boys and their beards are AWESOME! Huge and very manly.....:^)

JULIA!....You are evil! That movie really really really squicks me out. Really. Badly. ACK!!!!!!!
