The Hobbit Movie: Men's Facial Hair Bonanza!
What am I looking forward to most about The Hobbit? Men's Facial Hair Bonanza, baby!
At a press conference about the movie, multiple male cast members had already begun growing their own lovely facial hair. The lineup (albeit limited) on display of hairy male faces was absolute heaven. All bias aside, every one of them looked perfectly delicious with their facial hair growth.
As for the movie itself, stills and trailers have shown a fabulous array of facial hair, sure to thrill and delight the most discerning men's facial hair lover.
Ahh, what I wouldn't have given to have been on set, if only for a few moments, surrounded by all of that luscious facial hair! Ya know I would've resorted to bribery with my delicious (and quite addictive) homemade dark chocolate brownies in exchange for some face rubbins. mmmmmmmm. It would have been a win-win for all involved. :-)
Unfortunately, the first installment of The Hobbit is almost a year away, with the second installment to follow an entire year after that. Talk about prolonged foreplay. Sheesh.
Sadly, I am sure the bearded cast members, now home again, have shaven off all their lovely facial hair. *pouty lips* Pity.
Some of the cast members, such as the UK's own Richard Armitage, seem to routinely sport some type of facial hair in real life and in various roles, so there is that consolation prize for those of us who just can't get enough.

*CORRECTION: The cast members went home only for a Christmas break and the filming has once again resumed. It is scheduled to continue on through July 2012, so facial hair lovers rejoice! We have many more months ahead of that luscious facial hair to dream about!
