Almost twenty years later (Holy cow. What?!), and I can't imagine him wearing a mustache anymore. Now I'm used to him looking the way he does, and he looks like my dad, plain and simple.
It occurs to me, the mustache is going the way of the rotary phone and wearing three piece suits to work every day. In fact, the only actor I know who does wear the full, luxurious, upper-lip warmer is Tom Selleck. (But, boy does it work for him.) It's just not considered "in" right now to sport the 'stache. I would never think to write a hero with a fuzzy face, it just doesn't attract me. Maybe it's my generation?
How about you? Do you like your man/literary hero/movie actor with bristles or without? Baby-faced or furry like a Caterpillar refuge? Just the mustache or the works -beard and all?
(Many thanks to Kaylee Ruddle, for her hilarious mustache jokes and the inspiration for this blog.)
