Celebrity Facial Hair Friday - Writers Guild of America
On Monday we did a special edition of Celebrity Facial Hair featuring the once be-bearded and now de-bearded David Letterman. I figured I'd bookend this week with a shot of Conan O'Brien, who is also showing his solidarity. Thing is it was surprisingly hard to find a current picture of O'Brien. And, the real bearders are the Writers Guild of America, so let's focus on them for a minute.
I found this New Yorker article amusing, as well as these seven photos of striking writers, all in various stages of facial hair flourish. There's Rob Dubbin, a writer for “The Colbert Report." Colin Jost, a writer for "Saturday Night Live" (and possible Sylar look-alike). And more.
John Solomon, another "S.N.L." writer, said he was sporting "kind of a Dan Haggerty," referring to the actor who played Grizzly Adams, and that he'd just been called the Unabomber by a visiting acquaintance from Greece. "The person who blew everybody's mind was Paul Shaffer," he said, recalling an impromptu pep talk that Letterman’s bandleader had delivered to the strikers outside Rockefeller Center. "He had a pretty full white beard, and no one recognized him for the longest time."
Paul Shaffer can grow a beard? Well, we may have our candidate for next week. Off to find a picture...
