Movie Saving Flavor Alert

Due out this year in the UK is a little movie called 'The Dangerous Method' starring Viggo Mortensen, Keira Knightly, and the new hottie on everyone's watch list: Michael Fassbender.  The movie is about Freud and Jung's invention of psychoanalysis. Sounds awesome.

And as you may have guessed, it will definitely be one of those period-pieces that fit as much facial hair per frame as possible.  I do believe they could have done better with Viggo - he really doesn't do Sigmund Freud's moustache any justice at all.

And Fassbender is totally the Irish Donald Draper. Except he isn't oozing with Irish charm...I'd even venture to say it is more Scandinavian?  And the man likes to make sound effects...a lot.  Take it or leave it, but its got a hot-nerd vibe doesn't it?

He doesn't pretend that his moustache is awesome and says in a NY Times interview that he's gellin' on some Tom Selleck, Magnum P.I. stuff.  First of all, who isn't? Second, it's okay, some people were born at doing things better than others, like math.  Other people were born with talents that actually matter and affect people, like growing facial hair. Tom Selleck is one of those people who win gold medals at facial hair competitions, but it doesn't mean that he can't earn a participatory ribbon! 

Because facial hair is a sport about both quantity and quality!
