Why Richard Harrow from 'Boardwalk Empire' is Excellent Boyfriend Material

We don’t want to be clichés. We detest such things. But dammit if we don’t love ourselves a man who’s tall, dark and damaged, and Boardwalk Empire is lousy with them. But one tender piece of damaged goods stands head and shoulders and mask above the rest, and that man is Richard Harrow. And we love him. We love that beautiful, half-faced weirdo. We may kid about wanting a relationship with Todd from Breaking Bad, but we’re serious about Richard. Here’s why.

He’ll take you dancing.

He’s both crafty and sentimental.

Don’t be fooled by the mask — he has excellent hand-eye coordination.

He’ll pretend to like your kid’s artwork.

He’s game for anything. Like scalping.

Or picnics.

He’s kissable. No, really.

He knows how to accessorize.

And to always bring a lady flowers.

He’s honest — always telling it like it is.

He’ll support you in your passions, and even participate.

Better still, he knows how to stay focused. (… Really sorry about that.)

He cleans up real good. A humminah humminah humminah.

He’s not bad messy, either.

He has a healthy view of relationships.

I can guarantee he’ll give you a hell of a rock.

He’s gainfully employed.

He’s a dog person! Like that dog he didn’t kill!

There’s just so much about his soul you want to fix.

He’s good with kids.

And he’ll avenge your death.

A romantic ‘til the end.

*Swoon*

Can we get an amen?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not


  • Lisa Rose Ferrara

    AMEN. A. Effin' Men. Richard Harrow is the greatest character ever. And Jack Huston is an acting GOD.

    ALSO...you left out the fact that when Gillian had her period, he asked, "Can I help?" So he's totes the guy that would come back from the store with feminine hygiene products and a pint of Ben & Jerry's...

  • eric09

    ew your are nasty. FUck i hate Richard Harrow. Worst character on the show.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    He's also got an awesome aunt and uncle (the actor that is.)

  • thatstrangewoman

    and grandfather and great-grandfather too

  • AngelenoEwok

    OH JESUS HIS SCRAPBOOK. Thanks, I hadn't wept enough today!

  • Best looking man in a flat cap ever.
    Why yes I do have a man crush.

  • manting

    He is the most likable character on the show. He possess a great moral code and is totally badass.

  • eric09

    Couldn't disagree more!! I hate this character! He is boring and evil! always mumbling. He's worse than nucky. Kill him off already

  • Catagisreading

    He is chock full of pathos... It's all in the body language so apologetic for just taking up the space. Even when he goes full badass, there is something inherently mournful about it. It's totally compelling.

  • Iron

    Alright, you've convinced me. I will now start watching Boardwalk Empire

  • lowercase_ryan

    Richard Harrow and Ron Swanson, in character, walking or riding horses from town to town, doing...I don't care what they're doing.

    Call it: Manimalists

  • LoLoJo

    Yay! He is the man. He does so much with half a face!

    Quick Pajiba question: what happened to the recaps/'in a nutshell' reviews for Boardwalk Empire? I got Mr. LoloJo hooked on them and then they disappeared...

  • John W

    He does such an amazing job with that mask on, imagine what he could do with his entire face at his disposal?

  • Lisa Rose Ferrara

    He could conquer the world. I'm sure of it.

  • MauraFoley

    Love him soooooo muuuuuuch.

  • chump

    I would turn gay for him.
