Alexander Skarsgard

I'm inspired friends! True Blood is returning soon and while I am thrilled at the prospect of hearing Sookie profess her love to "Bee-ill" and seeing Jason walk around with his shirt off, I am even MORE thrilled at the prospect of more Alexander Skarsgard aka Eric Northman aka the Hottest Blondie Vampire ever. Yeah, Spike - you heard!

I must admit to not being particularly swoonful over Eric when I first saw him but like just about everybody else I have fallen for his Swedish-talkin' charms.

Interestingly enough I thought that Alexander Skarsgard was the son of Stellan Skarsgard - which he is. I also thought that he was the brother of Peter Sarsgaard, which he isn't! Because, hey - they don't even have the same name! Silly me.

Josh Lawson

Josh Lawson is a bit of a 'hey, it's that guy'. Except in his case it's 'hey, it's that funny guy that looks better with a beard.' I couldn't find any pics of Josh with the lush full beard he was sporting on last night's 'Good News Week'. But if you look at his furrier face above and squint so that the picture is really, really fuzzy...then well, you might come close. Or you could go to this website and have a look at the video yourself. I would suggest that you do that because it really is a good beard. I'll wait...
Amiright or amiright?
Another good thing about Josh Lawson growing a beard is that he also seems to grow his eyebrows back. Cool!

Off the Wall

This is a little late in coming but I just had to indulge (BWAB is after all one of my greatest indulgences). A quick RIP to Michael Jackson. Obviously, he went properly crazy in the last 10 years and that was sad. But those silver disco ball Rock with You boots will be forever in my memory as one of the coolest things ever.

Thanks for those slammin' tunes, MJ. Damn, you was cute.

Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper is on the edge of being really, really famous. I can feel it in my fame-o-meter and I think we all know why (hint – it’s the beard).

He’s seems to be all over the place at the moment. I see recently that he is even being touted as “Jen’s new Brad”. Which is a bit sad for him – though I guess there are worse ways to pass time than schtooping Jennifer Aniston.

I do have to admit that I had to look up Bradley Cooper on IMDB to find out whether I have actually seen him act. It turns out that I have. In quite a few things – which leads me to think that they were all pre-beard because I have absolutely no recollection of him. However, I will rectify that by paying rather close attention to what he does from now on. Particularly as he has been cast as “Face” in the upcoming A-team movie. Exciting!

James Blake

Due to the fact that Wimbledon starts on Monday, I have decided to BWAB another tennis player. Which I have discovered is actually my third. I guess beards and tennis have been going hand in hand for a while now and who am I to scoff at tradition?

So here we have James Blake. While he certainly is slammin, he has never won a Grand Slam - which is a shame. I think that he can get close this year; he has overcome a fair bit to continue his tennis career. Did you know that a few years ago he slid into the net post and broke his neck! After that I would think overcoming the Teacher’s Aide (Roger Federer) would be dead easy.

Plus he looks very good when smiling and holding up trophies. Reason enough to let the man win Wimbledon!

Go James and mind the net post!

Oh James, even after being BWAB-ed you couldn't come up with the goods. At least you bought good beard, I guess.

Brandon Flowers

Brandon Flowers I love the way you sing. To me. I know that mostly you are just singing to me. Why else would you have a song that says "He doesn't look a thing like Jesus"? Who else would care that their man doesn't look like Jesus apart from me? Exactly!

I do wish that you had carried over with the guy-liner and manscara to your beardy pic. It's hot. You're quite fashion forward aren't you? What next. A cape? Anyway, keep up the good work and try not to look so worried. You can totally carry off the ribbon tie.

Just as an aside I have figured out why Brandon looks so worried as a beardy. The man is scared of himself! Surely that can't be good.

I'm Ron Burgundy?

As a birthday present to myself I thought that I would BWAB Ron Burgundy and let me tell you by the beard of Zeus was it fun!
Basically this BWAB meant looking at pictures of Ron Burgundy, looking at You Tube clips of Ron Burgundy and reading Ron Burgundy quotes.
I was feeling a bit blue about sitting around in an office by myself all day but Ron has cheered me up no end.
The reason that I think Ron is BWAB (not that he doesn’t have a mighty fine moustache) is that he managed to grow this beard in THREE days. He was going through a very hard time, he had lost his job and his beloved Baxter had been punted into the river - “Baxter... is that you? Baxter! Bark twice if you’re in Milwaukee” – but through adversity he grew a mighty beard and decided that, in fact, milk was a bad choice.
I think that there is a lesson in that for all of us.
You stay classy, Ron Burgundy.
