Awesome Hair: An Ode to Christian Kane
Did you watch Leverage on Tuesday? If you did (and if you didn’t, you missed an awesome show, go watch it now!) you probably noticed some of the best hair on TV. And what a great job the episode did of showing off that hair. We got to see Chris in a tuque, with his hair down, in a fancy ponytail, and of course messy ponytail battle mode. I’m sure with all the disguises used on the show that there will be a number of other hairstyles over the course of the season.
Of course, for fans of Christian Kane the level of awesome his hair exhibited came as no surprise. He’s been rocking the hair for many years now. In fact, it’s widely believed that Chris possessed such a magnificent, lush head of hair upon his birth (magically free of Birth Goo), that the doctor that delivered him wept openly at the sight of it, and continued to do so for several years. His tears eventually formed Lake Texoma.
The length of Chris’ hair has little bearing on how awesome it is, baring of course personal preference. Long or short, Chris hair is never anything short of spectacular. This applies to his facial hair as well, as his ‘stache from Secondhand Lions shown above clearly shows. His hair even bypasses the uncanny valley, as evidenced by this shot from 24: The Game. Even digital representations of his hair look cool. Sure, you could attribute this to the skill of the game’s modellers, but I think we all know the real reason.
I could go on, citing examples from throughout his career such as his awesome portrayal of Lindsey McDonald on Angel, but any of you can go and do that with a couple quick IMDB and Google searches if these pictures haven’t satisfied your awesome hair quota for the day. So I think I’ll wrap this post up with a little bit more pimping, because I really want the show to do well: Christian Kane’s rocking hair, yet another reason to watch TNT’s Leverage (Tuesdays at 10!).
