As any ratfink will tell you, being so cosy with the teacher has its perks. Like, you can ask a really cool character actor to write a blog for you and they’ll do it. Or, your TV bosses can order you to ask a really cool character actor to write a blog for you and then he has to say yes because they’ve ordered him to do it.
However Jack Coleman’s The HRG Files blog got started on television without pity, we are indebted.
He’s a good writer. He brings with him insight and humour and a sense of self-awareness that is refreshing. And I’d totally bone him. He is most definitely a DILF.
Among other things, he claims the horn rimmed glasses he must wear for the role of Claire’s father on Heroes make him look like “a shop teacher from the ’60s who never had time for a wife,” writes show business as “show bidness,” and talks about a movie he wrote and cast himself in, even though “I wasn’t my first choice for the role.”
I think I love you, Jack Coleman.
