Facial Hair Friday, Week 53

14 Jan

Its been a while since we had a Facial Hair Friday.  But, the holidays are completely over.  Family has gone home.  Traveling is over.  And Lara and the Reel Boy is back with a vengeance.

To continue with the vengeance started by yesterday’s True Grit and Tron: Legacy mashup, we bring you the first Facial Hair Friday of the new year.  Now, we are predominantly a movie discussion blog.  But we love television as well.  Look at my Netflix “recently watched” and you will see just as many television shows as movies.  But television is rarely discussed on here, beyond the occasional mention of Doctor Who.  That changes today, as our Facial Hair Friday winner is the owner of one of the best mustaches to light up the small screen.

Ron Swanson

Ron Swanson is my second favorite character on NBC’s Parks and Recreation.  And no small part of that is due to his amazing mustache.  His character really represents what the Hollywood leading man has lost.  Its very rare to see a leading man be a man’s man in the way Ron Swanson is.  The lumberjack man.  The hairy, burly, overwieght-yet-muscular man.  Hollywood has lost this.  But Nick Offerman’s Ron Swanson is bravely carrying the flag.

Parks and Recreation returns after a small hiatus to begin its third season on January 20th, much to the happiness of us here at Lara and the Reel Boy.
