Badurday- March 16, 2013- Michael Collins

Since it’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend, I’m planning to watch one of my all time favorite Irish movies, Michael Collins. That man was truly what I would call one of my bad boys. He was strong, full of conviction and even though he was hated by the British, he did what he needed to do to stand up for what he believed even to the point of dying for those beliefs. This movie somewhat romanticizes what happened in the fight for Irish independence but it’s a good film. I love the way the cast relates to each other and the scenery and cinematography are superb. It doesn’t hurt that Alan Rickman, Aiden Quinn and Liam Neeson are easy on the eyes, too. Enjoy the day, drink a toast to your favorite Irishman and watch a flick.

Badurday- March 12, 2012- Aiden Quinn

Last week I talked about Liam Neeson and how much I loved him in the new movie Unknown as well as the movie Michael Collins and I talked about Aiden Quinn and how awesome it was that they had teamed  up again.  Aiden also celebrated a birthday this week- 52 years old on March 8. He was raised in both Chicago and Ireland.  I’ve always liked him and even though I couldn’t find a movie that he played a bad guy in, I had to share him here on Badurday.

Aiden was in Desperately Seeking Susan way back in the day and was tres sexy in that role. I guess you could say he was kind of bad there, right??  I also loved him in the movie called Practical Magic. He plays a lot of cops for some reason. It’s interesting to me how many actors seem to gravitate to cop roles.  I adored the show called Third Watch that used to come on NBC and he played on the last season of that.

Enjoy the birthday boy and help him celebrate by checking out one of his flicks this weekend.

Badurday- June 26, 2010- The Tudors Edition

In honor of the end of The Tudors series, I have chosen our Bad-urday boy this week to be Jonathan Rhys Meyers.  Now, I actually chose him a couple of weeks ago when I was watching Bend it like Beckham where he plays Joe, the girls’ soccer coach but he got bumped first by Billy Burke and then by Frank Sinatra when I was in New York.  But it worked out all right as here we are with the end of the series and we have our King Henry VIII.  AND it is World Cup month and he was in a soccer movie, so it worked out there, too.  Our bad boy also played the assassin of Michael Collins in the film of the same name with Liam Neeson and Alan Rickman. Love that movie.  He was in August Rush, which is a cool little movie.  He wasn’t a bad boy in it but he was sexy as hell. Have not seen Loss of Sexual Innocence which he is in- may have to rent that one.  And for the breeches crowd, he was in Vanity Fair as well.

Henry VIII was the baddest boy ever.  In real life, he was an ogre but he was very handsome in his early years. 

Here are some more great shots: Remember the old song by Eartha Kitt “C’mon a my house?”  C’mon, man, c’mon!
