10 More Great Celebrity Beards

Wolf Blitzer

wolf blitzer beard
Pop quiz!  Is this a stage name?  Answer… nope!  This dude was really named Wolf Blitzer by his mother and father.  And thank goodness he decided to be a beard wearer.  Because what good would a man named Wolf be if he weren’t hairy?

George Clooney

Man, you gotta love the Clooney beard.  Especially in Syriana… that was a big beard fit for the big screen!  Clooney comes off as a guy who looks like he was born to wear a beard, and I’d say it’s probably because he a Kentucky boy, just like yours truly.  Damn, Kentucky, you really do churn out some handsome bearded men!

Jack Black

Jack Black Beard

Jack’s beard really helps him set off his trademark “slacker” look.  Would his wild-eyed antics be as funny without a wild beard attached to his face?  Here’s the answer.  It’s “no.”  I mean, have you seen Shallow Hal?

Jim Carrey

Here’s a good counterpoint to Jack Black’s beard.  While Jack’s beard enhances his hilarity, Jim Carrey’s beard lends a notable gravitas to his persona.  Can you believe this is the same guy who got famous stuffing asparagus in his upper lip as Ace Ventura?  He looks like your biology professor!

Jim Henson

Jim henson beard

All joking aside, Jim Henson had a huge impact on my childhood.  I was a rabid Muppets fan, not only watching the television show, but also regularly reading my copy of “The Muppet Show Book.”  Someone as gentle and caring as Kermit could only have come from a sensitive bearded gentleman like Jim.  In contrast to the sweet childhood memories, another Henson project “The Dark Crystal” was the film of choice for many freaky “enhanced” viewings in my college days!

Justin Timberlake

I’m loving that JT is rockin’ the beard nowadays.  I think it’s well agreed that he is the best thing to come out of the boy band blight of the late 90’s/early 00’s.  Bravo to JT for shedding his baby-faced past by doing the exact opposite of shedding and putting more hair on his face.

Morgan Freeman

Anyone watch The Electric Company back in the late 70’s?  That show taught me how to read, no jokes!  And Morgan Freeman was a part of it.  That’s right, Morgan Freeman taught me how to read.  And then he taught me what a black president would be like in Deep Impact.  When a seven-mile-wide comet is streaking toward Earth, I’ll rest easy knowing that Obama has a top-secret spaceship under construction in orbit, ready to go blow it up, and a National Bunker being prepared in the Ozarks.  I just hope I am one of the 800,000 lucky ones who get chosen to take shelter.  Anyway, you really do have to love that silver beard.

Mel Gibson

For a racist drunk, this guy has a pretty good beard!  That crazy white streak is about as crazy as he is.  It’s like his chin mated with the Bride of Frankenstein.  I have to say, though, that the uniqueness of the beard is pretty enviable.  I hope when I go gray in the beard that it happens in some unforeseen fantastic way.  Like the gray parts actually spell out the word “beard” on my beard or something like that.

Viggo Mortenson

Not only does Aragorn actually occasionally wear an awesome beard in real life, but he’s also considered to be a modern Renaissance man.  In addition to being a truly good actor, he is also a painter, an accomplished photographer, and a poet.  He even started a publishing house for artists who are struggling to find a way to take their art to the masses.  This guy and his beard are so impressive, I can’t even think of anything funny to say about them.  Damn.

Randy Moss

Love him or hate him, Randy can grow a great mossy beard.  He’s from West Virginia so he has some of that beard desire that seeps through Appalachian culture.  You have to admit, there’s just something awesome about a football player who keeps surprises like this hidden under his helmet.  It’s like some sort of nougat-y center inside a hard candy shell.  Only the nougat is made of hair.
