MCM: Matthew Goode

3

How do I like ’em? (Kendra reporting here). I like ’em tall, dark, and handsome. Case in point: Matthew Goode, a British actor who’s done a surprising number of historical movies and looked fiiiiiiine in all of them. He’s tall (I just looked him up — 6’2″. I ovulated as soon as I read that). Dark. And HANDSOME. And he looks damn good in a suit. Let’s be lascivious together, shall we?

    what about “he knew he was right”? my first goode fix – before i knew, that I had seen him already in “confessions of an ugly stepsister” (with a shoddy wig that then went straight ahead to cillian murphy for “the girl with the pearl earring”) – and such a tilneyesque charmer he was.

    Goode is one of my faves as well. Check him out in the movie Stoker as well- sexiest serial killer alive.
