Totally Doable Older Dudes

January 20, 2010

When I was watching  The Golden Globes the other night, I was like a kid in a candy store, what with all the old geezers getting their drink on.  See, I have always had a thing for older men.  You can take your trite Taylor Lautners, Zac Efrons, and Leonardo DiCaprios.  It’s the older men that make my heart go pitter pat.

My friend (and staff writer Pancake) have spent many a night discussing the finer physical attributes of men of the  silver-haired persuasion that are currently settling into their sixties or seventies.  Here is a list of five of our favorites.

Jeff Bridges.  Nobody brings the sexy to dry-heaving like Mr. Bridges.  Currently playing a washed up alcoholic country singer in Crazy Hearts, there is nothing he could do to dissuade me from thinking he is one sexy beast.  Despite a weight gain, frumpy beard, tighty-whities and frequent bouts of puking during the movie, I’d still hit that faster than Heidi Montag can whore herself out on another morning show. Plus he is the original dude (The Big Lebowski.)

Harrison Ford.  When I was a wee lass, I used to cut photos of Harrison and (then wife) Melissa Matheson out of magazines, then I would paste my glamorous school photo head over Melissa’s.  That’s not creepy at all, is it?  Harrison is the first man who ever made my heart hurt, and I was seething with jealousy when a woman closer to my own age, Calista Flockhart, managed to snag the acting icon. What with all his slurring and stumbling at public appearances as of late, the bloom has worn off the rose a bit, but he’s forever Indy to me.  I am happy to report that I have successfully indoctrinated my two daughters to love all things Indy as well, which annoys my husband to no end.

Tom Skerritt.  The man is a strapping 77 years old, and has never looked better.  He was the only thing to be salvaged from the crapfest that was Whiteout, and he has been on Brothers and Sisters for the last several years. .  He is a fine actor, but my favorite role of his was in the trashfest Poison Ivy.  Drew Barrymore got to bump and grind against Mr. Skerrit, and I have never forgiven her.  In 1993, he was featured in a print ad for Guess cologne.  That makes him hot, hawt, and haute!

Hugh Laurie.  Nerdy, and old, you say?   Be still my heart.  Laurie’s crochety, cantankerous turn as television’s House has reinvigorated my love of the medical drama. Add a cane into the mix, followed by a prescription drug addiction–I ‘m hopelessly hooked.  Bonus:  if you have kids, you can rent Stuart Little under the pretense that it is all for the little ones.  *wink*  True, he is a bit young for our list, just a mere whippersnapper at 51.

Dennis Quaid.  Yum.  That is all.  He’s only 56, but he like fine wine, he gets better as he ages.  I fully expect to be swooning for decades to come.

Honorable mention: Lance Henrikson.  A permanent fixture on the sci-fi landscape, Henrikson is one of our favorite septuagenarians. Usually brooding and intense (see Terminator, Predator and Alien film series), his unflappable, unattainable demeanor makes him all that more desirable to us.  A short cameo in 2009′s Jennifer’s Body left us screaming for more.

Honorable mention:  Stephen McHattie.  You don’t know who he is?  Shame on you, you obviously didn’t see Pontypool last year, a smart Canadian import with a unique spin on the zombie genre.  McHattie’s performance as a late night radio dj was all kinds of good.  He also popped up in 2012, and Watchman (as the original Nite Owl) last year.  His striking resemblance to Hugh Laurie is no coincidence, and no doubt  helped garner him a spot on our list.

    As a 43 year old married to a 53 year old I have a finnnne appreciation for older men. :D

    You list is fine, but I have two exceptions – Harrison Ford? His midlife crisis girlfriend and earring squee me out and I lost a lot of respect for him. Calista Flockhart is a dolt of epic porportions. And Hugh Laurie? I don’t see it – but I am not a fan of “House” so that might be it.

    Sam Shepard would’ve been a welcome addtion as would Sam Elliot. Mmmmm. Oh, and James Caan is a little piece of eye candy too [I love the reruns of Las Vegas]

    Oh and watching Harrison Ford at the GG’s the other night? I don’t think I have ever seen a movie star stumble and slur so much on camera. I was laughing.

    Wow, I am so embarrassed to have left Sam Elliot off this list. Sizzling hot, to be sure. All the beauty on the page must have gone to my brain. Yep, I’ll take Sam Shepard as well. However, you can have James Caan and I’ll keep my Hugh Laurie. I can’t explain my tastes, I can only accept them. :)

    And Harrison, well, he’s Harrison. I am disappointed in the earring, the slurring, the odd behavior, but I’ve spent over three decades worshipping the guy. I am no fair weather fan, and I’ll admit when that photo of him dressed as Indy (posted) leaked to the internet during the filming of Indy 4, I had all kinds of nasty thoughts swirling in my head.

    Hugh Laurie = Swoon. Also, though he isn’t nearly old enough, I totally want to have sex with Wayne Coyne.

    Love this post! My old guy crush is Brad Pitt. Hey, I’m younger than you. :)

    @Shannon – deal on Mr. Laurie and Mr. Caan – we can double date ;)

    What?! No Pierce Brosnan?? There is a reason he was Bond for so long, I guess the same could be said for Sean Connery, but he doesn’t really do it for me. But who else does??? Alan Rickman could read me poetry and make me faint!
    Also Liam Neeson is older but still kicks so much ass.

    Oh…not down with Tom Skerritt, but I have caught a bunch of flack for liking Stanly Tucci.

  8. Shannon on January 20, 2010 at 10:46 pm

    Yeah I thought about Pierce, but he is almost too pretty for this party. I’m right there with you on Alan Rickman’s voice.
