Karl Urban, Judge Dredd.jpeg

Looky here! The first image of Karl Urban from the wholly unnecessary Judge Dredd remake (titled, simply, Dredd) was just released. While the image is dark and fairly benign, I think we can all agree that this helmet is going to present a serious challenge to Urban. . .you know. . .actingwise. . .not cracking-upwise. . .me taking him at all seriouslywise. Here's the full image:

Now, don't get me wrong, I have a lot of faith in Urban. This ain't his first rodeo. (By "rodeo" I, of course, mean instances where Urban has clearly pissed off the costumers by sleeping with their wife or daughter and was then made to wear something preposterous while performing tricks for our amusement.) Exhibit A:

And, listen, putting well-respected/beloved actors in laughable head gear is a Hollywood tradition. Here are some of my favorite "what what what are you wearing" moments. If you have a nominee, we request you submit photographic proof fo the preposterousness. You know, so we can point and laugh.
