You guys, I was starting to feel like I have a type, so I had to make a conscious effort to not pick another tall dark and handsome this week. So enter Charlie Hunnam.
I know him best as Jackson ‘Jax’ Teller from Sons of Anarchy, although his breakout role was actually in Queer as Folk (the original, British version). But I’m not posting any photos from then because he was just a youngun and this is a family site. (Right?)
You may have already started to gather that I may take various television shows a little too seriously, and therefore I have a hard time separating Charlie from Jax, so I actually made a conscious effort to find a number of non-Jax photos of him. For instance, no way Jax is wearing freaking Giorgio Armani undies. Please.
But one Jax-esque photo seems necessary at least. You’re welcome.
Charlie is actually British which was very hard for me to reconcile when I first learned this. Now I can hear it in his American accent from time to time but he does pretty good… not like Liam Neeson when he tries to sound like a cowboy. Anyway, if you don’t know the show, Jax is a 30-something leader of a biker gang in SoCal with a strong drive to protect his family and some major daddy issues. He’s got kids to look after who he doesn’t want to follow in his footsteps, but he also loves his club and his biker gang (club) brothers. He won’t hesitate to do anything to protect family, whether blood or patch. (If you’re not down with FX’s version of biker language, you get “patched in” when you join the club.)
He’s always shooting some dirty cop to protect a hooker with a heart of gold or something. But anyway, I digress.
He was also in that ridiculous movie Pacific Rim, where everything was completely impossible physics-wise. But it’s OK because there was a lot of time to observe this:
Listen, I’m not saying you have to agree with me about the movie if you want to believe we can build giant 300-foot tall robots, but who cares? The point here is Charlie is hot.
Last but not least, you know how I love a man in a suit.
Jax is a bad ass. Any biker that decides it is ok to wear sneakers (I think they are K-Swiss) is super tough.
