Anthony Head

Born February 20, 1954

Anthony Head or Anthony Stewart Head as he was known in pre-Buffy syndication times. He was freaking Giles. One of the best characters on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He was the mentor to that whole group and was the pivot of the plot on a lot of episodes.

Noteworthy

  • Buffy The Vampire Slayer – Giles the Watcher. Perfectly cast. No one else could have done this role.
  • BTVS – Episode: The Gift – Click here to watch the scene – This is my all time favorite Giles scene in the entire show. He has been training Buffy to kill Vampires and Demons for years. He explains to Ben/Glory that she can’t kill him because he is human – because Buffy is not like “us.” The “us” he is talking about is he and Ben/Glory. Giles then puts his hand over Ben’s nose and mouth and suffocates him. Damn…
  • Little Britain – Head plays the Prime Minister. Hilarity ensues. I love Little Britain and Tony Head playing the straight guy to the rest of the cast as the PM is perfect casting.

We all sing about the things we’re thinking; musicals are about expressing those emotions that you can’t talk about. It works a real treat.

Mike Rowe

Mike Rowe Born March 18, 1962   Dirty Jobs is still my favorite Mike Rowe vehicle. Noteworthy Dirty Jobs - Rowe got down and dirty doing those jobs that you probably would not want to do and in some cases, jobs that you didn't even know were being done, to begin with....

I Miss My Nintendo 64

I miss my Nintendo 64. I picked mine up while I was in college. Worked n and off for a pool and spa place and earned one for my troubles. Cash would have been very cool but I think I got way more entertainment out of the N64 over time than I ever would have from the...

Clark Gregg

Clark Gregg Born April 2, 1962   Clark Greg first sauntered onto the small screen for me as Richard on The New Adventures of Old Christine. Sinc that time, he has taken a much bigger role in our geeky universe playing the ever-recurring role of Agent Coulson in the...

Eva Mendes

Eva Mendes Born March 5, 1974   Eva Mendes really can do it all. She is an amazing actress, a business person, and a mom. She is also devastatingly funny. Noteworthy Hitch - Mendes is the perfect leading lady and counterpart to Will Smith in Hitch. She is so damn...

Kevin James

Kevin James Born April 26, 1965   Kevin James is a truly funny guy. He has played a variety of roles and he seems to be able to play just about any role, some of which we will dig into below. He is very deft at physical humor but then you watch him act and emote and...
