A Smooth Werewolf & A Hairy Vampire
He’s cute, adorkable (I’m not saying that because he has a cute pair of glasses on) and has the perfect laddish voice any twenty something Brit can ever have. And he plays on my team as well! Meet fresh faced Russell Tovey from across the pond who stars in BBC’s new series “Being Human”. It’s like “True Blood” with some ghost, werewolf and comedy thrown in. The nudity level is pretty much the same, fortunately. Each episode we get to see this meatpie running around with his hand on the family jewels. Now that’s a TV show worth my time.
If Russell is too dry for your taste, we also have Aidan Turner (not that Aiden Turner) who appropriately played a vampire. Hold up. Where do all these hairy vampires come from? When I was a child I thought there’s no such thing as a fuzzy bloodsucker. The hairy ones always turned out to be werewolves. In contrast, Russell is so smooth that they have to apply fake chest hair on him. Imagine that! That said, kudos to the casting director for making this a perfectly balanced out, good television, follicle-wise of course.
