Because I think Steve Buscemi is a great actor (those globulous eyes could look so benevolent in one second and really weird/creepy the next)…because I am loving The Boardwalk Empire with the rest of the great cast… because I am wowed by the setting (visually stunning, said the critics, and oh-so lavish, and I absolutely concur)… because I am fascinated by the plot and the jazzy scores… and last but not the least, because I love the 20s fashion, although in this case it’s the men’s wardrobe that’s catching my eye…
I’m jumping on the bandwagon to Boardwalk in my “Nucky Thompson” wingtips.
They’re not in the same color as Nucky’s wingtips in the opening credits but they will do for now.
None of the cast members seem yummy Vitamin As for the eyes and I am not going to drool over them (like what I did during the Prisonbreak Season 1 and 2 spells) but Steve Buscemi is almost… uhm… ehrrr… handsome and dapper — no there’s nothing wrong with my eyes but his talent and those suits are really distracting — like David Niven handsome and dapper. Yup, the acting skills and those very detailed tailored vintage suits of the rest of the cast really do something to upgrade their coolness levels!
I will now stop my useless rambling (examples: “likey!”, “nice!”, “wow!”, “I want one of those!”, “I wish I lived during the 20s”) about the costumes and the show anymore and I am just going to lead my readers to the following better written posts:
