Whatta Man Monday ~ Badass Edition!

So last week Carson Daly whooped Willie Geist on our Today Show Edition

of course I chose incorrectly.


This week we’re taking it to cable.

I’m pitting two of the most badass guys on tv right now against each other.


Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan) vs Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon/The Walking Dead)

Here’s the thing with these two.  I don’t know how typically handsome either is.

BUT when in their Ray Donovan/Daryl Dixon roles they suddenly become sneak-up-on-you attractive.  Like, “Who knew he was so HOT?”


Let me start with Liev Schreiber.

He’s been around forever…has starred in many movies, and is famously married to Naomi Watts.

Never before have I found him quite as hunky as I do as Ray Donovan.


Ray Donovan airs on Showtime and just wrapped up it’s first season.  Liev stars as Ray…he is totally alpha male and completely badass.  I don’t know what it is about him in this role, but hellloooooo Liev, where have you been all my life?


Norman Reedus is Daryl Dixon on the crazy popular show The Walking Dead.  Now, full disclosure, I don’t watch this show…yet.  It’s on my list.  But seriously, I have friends.  And they can’t get enough of this guy.  Certainly from the pictures I don’t get it.  I mean, he kind of looks like a rat to me.  Sorry.  But even my husband told me I needed to do this guy on Whatta Man… so he must have SOMETHING!


What’s crazy about these shows.. they transform these actors and we see them in a way we never have.  And on their respective shows they both have pretty messed up family situations… my husband told me to put that little nugget in.  Details, y’all.

Let’s take a closer look.


In a suit…

PicMonkey Collage2You have two totally different looks here.  Scruffy vs clean cut.


Next up the smolder…

PicMonkey Collage5Sorry/not sorry about the shirtless one.



Like totally casual, man….

PicMonkey Collage4Mmmm hmmm.


Nice but not too nice…

PicMonkey Collage3This is getting harder by the second.



And yeah, sportin’ a tie.

So who’s your favorite badass?

    I am with you on the slightly ratty on The Walking Dead… but that’s ok. He is still yum

    Ahhh Norman. Can we have a Whatta Man Monday – Walking Dead edition sometime in the near future? I’d like to see how Norman does against Andrew Lincoln. Shelly, you need to start watching this show immediately–probably best do it during the day…with all the lights on.

    Norman Reedus all the way!! He’s been a favorite long before the Walking Dead, when I saw him in The Boondock Saints.

    Norman Reedus is the Sexiest! man Alive! His eyes are so mesmerizing and the way he carries himself, just drives me Crazy!
    He is such a talented Actor/Artist, so passionate in what you set out to do. His attention to making the girl feel him in every sense of the word,
    Not any man can do that. His kisses are so perfect, he has it down to mastery, so that I get chills watching his movies during the kissing part.
    Maintaing all that and still be a bad ass, is Awesome! Love U
