Hugh Laurie, yes, yes, yes. Nigel Havers, no, no, no. I once saw HL in London and he's very tall and very smiley. I think he's wearing well. NH is far too small and pointy these days - not so great with older age. Just my opinion...

Oh, and hope the essay is going well. I used to write copy for all kinds of wine newsletters, press releases, product sheets etc etc. Blogging is much more fun!

I kind of like 'em small and pointy.

But you're right, he's not wearing as well as the Divine Mr L.

yum yum on both. i have always liked men who...look like that...hmmm. kinda craggy...

my verif word - ikrikjgd! i mean, what the heck! that's ridiculous.

Seeing as you are going any which way, I'm surprised the lovely Kaffe Fassett is not on your list.

I'll take that hugely good-looking Australian rugby player whose name I forget, but whose thighs I won't be able to forget in a hurry. And Mel Gibson in his prime. And Rupert Penry-Jones (in 'Spooks' on TV - he's the eye-candy as I can't understand any of the plots).

Suse said...

Oh yes, Rupert Penry Jones! Now he goes along with Hugh Laurie/Nigel Havers/David Hyde Pierce look you see. Smooth, blonde, charming, cultured and ever so slightly feminine.

Babelbabe, I don't consider HL or NH to be 'craggy', so I guess I should have stated that I am thinking of them as they USED to be in their heydeys. Smooth, pointy, glorious ... I recently watched Chariots of Fire again just to see Nigel in his 20s.

And yes I am feeling like a teenage girl.

(Have no idea who the Australian rugby player is. Shameful of me, eh? And I don't know what Kaffe actually looks like. Only his artworks!)

Hugh Laurie....mmmmmm!

Nigel Havers? I thought he was the fellow who was in Kate and Leopold, then I looked it up and that is Hugh Jackman.

I like to pronounce it
Huge
Ackman

I like them tall and pointy.

Hugh Laurie is wonderful. The perfect Bertie Wooster. Loved Mr. Palmer in "Sense and Sensibility" too -- and, oh, everything else! Even that thick Prince of Wales. And I still think Nigel Havers awfully yummy, but haven't seen him for years -- well, we'll always have "Chariots of Fire"!

Jeanne said...

PS, my mind is boggling at the fact that Nigel Havers, according to IMDB, was up for the role of Capt. Janeway on "Voyager"....

You must find some photos of Kaffe. There's one I've seen from the sixties where he's a flower-power, beautiful, semi-naked Adonis is a field of sunflowers - quite hysterical really, and probably not easy to track down these days. I'm pretty sure he was a model for a while and very sure he wasn't born with a name like Kaffe Fassett! I think he does fit into your pretty male category.

Hugh Jackman is another Australian on my list - but only when he's not in a hirsute phase.

Hugh Laurie definitely, and I'd love to leap on Richard Dreyfuss too.
