Michael Sheen Is Too Hot To Play Boris Johnson
Couple of important things to cover here:
1) Michael Sheen is hot. Seth is hot, too, but that’s not what this is about.
2) Michael Sheen would make a delightful real-life serial killer.
3) He’d make an equally delightful real-life pole dancer.
4) When Michael Sheen dedicates his body and soul to a project, he really dedicates his body and soul (and hair) to a project.
So here’s a thing about me: I’ve recently discovered I’ve got a very specific thing, and it’s people with clearly dyed blonde hair. Is it unrelated to this photo? No, no it is not. Bottle blonde, tatted up, metal Riz Ahmed changed something in me, and now it’s a thing that we all have to live with. (Bottle blonde Chris Messina and Rose Byrne did not help the situation.) Which means I might need to rewatch Sheen in Good Omens. Because remember?
Of course, I have to acknowledge this does mean the series missed the chance to cast a peroxide-blonde Sheen as the swaggering demon Crowley, and wow, that sentence was actually physically painful for me to write.
The larger point is DON’T JOKE ABOUT MICHAEL SHEEN PLAYING/LOOKING VAUGELY LIKE/HAVING LITERALLY ANYTHING TO DO WITH BORIS JOHNSON. You’re ruining it! Why? Why would you? If you find yourself talking about the various ways that Michael Sheen has of growing/dyeing his hair to play hot roles, and you think, “Should I mention Boris Effing Johnson right now?”, the answer is “I hate you.” It’s mean. You’re mean. Don’t do it.
