I dont know why, but hes kinda sexy, since he was in 300 with Butler and Fassie ....<dribbles a bit>.

That definition of sexism isn't mine, it's an established one with which I happen to agree.

But that's not what the thread's about and there's nothing wrong with it.

So, back to the thread.

I looked forwards to Daniels' many nude scenes in the later series of The Wire. He hadn't much of a face but that body...And it was so vital to the plot, making him take off his police uniform week after week after putting in so many hours in the gym. I expect he had strong words to say about being objectified like that.

Being old I actually like Jeremy Irons, what a Pope phwoah!

Whilst I disagree with country kitten as I do a a SOH, I do agree with her that women can be sexist.

Had many a naughty dream about him while working through The Wire box sets. Don#t fancy him in real life though, poshness does nothing for me. (Someone I know worked with him and said that he is lovely, but not very bright.)

But as McNulty, vulnerable, tough, damaged, alcoholic with warped principles and logic. I so would. A knee-trembler in the mean streets of Baltimore.
And I don't feel bad about objectifying him, he can objectify me right back. Any time.

This is totally off the debate - but I have been puzzling over Idris Elba being in a film/production called 'The Wire I was an Avon Lady' and wondering how come I wasn't aware of this piece of film brilliance.

And then I reread .......

<shuffles away, embarrassed>

GregBishopsBottomBitch Sun 24-Feb-13 11:21:04

Oh criminey........hmm

countrykitten Sun 24-Feb-13 11:17:19

Women cannot be sexist?!!!!

Prize for the most idiotic post I have ever read on MN.

GBBB - it's the horrible language I object to. And 'lighten up' sound just the same sort of shitty comment that a man would say to a woman if she objected to him speaking in this way. Oh the irony.

GregBishopsBottomBitch Sun 24-Feb-13 10:51:50

CountryKitten Lighten up, its meant to be a lighthearted thread, because in reality, how many of us would have a chance in hell, get a grip.

limitedperiodonly Sun 24-Feb-13 10:45:32

We're laughing because this is a situation everyone recognises doesn't exist in reality. And women cannot be sexist because we are not in a position of power.

We can be unpleasant, unkind and cruel but I don't think this thread is any of those things.

Anyway to drag things back to the OP's question: Dominic as Jimmy McNulty, or anyone else for that matter, does nothing for me and nomdeprune is dead right about the frog mouth. He's also got too much skin around his face like a sharpei. That's a bit unkind. But somehow I think Dominic will be able to cope.

Idris Elba never used to but I'm coming round to him. In The Wire I was an Avon Lady.

Cremolafoam Sun 24-Feb-13 10:19:05

YY as jimmy mcnulty
Prob not as Fred west

countrykitten Sun 24-Feb-13 10:03:58

Ah well that makes it ok to ape sexist language used by men then....confused

limitedperiodonly Sat 23-Feb-13 22:27:18

I think I'll cope because let's face it, women aren't really in the position to grab someone and force him to have sex with them.

GregBishopsBottomBitch Sat 23-Feb-13 19:40:15

I guess i dont see an issue in men saying it, afterall its just a silly fantasy.

hwjm1945 Sat 23-Feb-13 19:32:19

Liked ride him like a Blackpool donkey....but country you are right.if we're men,would be foul so really should be same for women

countrykitten Sat 23-Feb-13 19:25:35

I may be being U but I really hate this thread title. If a man had started a thread entitled 'Yeah I'd give Kiera Knightley a go' (or whoever) I would automatically think he was a bit of a dick.

I don't really see the difference here. The language is horrible and it's just....nasty.

GregBishopsBottomBitch Sat 23-Feb-13 18:22:26

Oh yeah, i forgot Damian, damn i love that ginger hair.

hwjm1945 Sat 23-Feb-13 18:19:48

Watching homeland at fit.

FriendlyLadybird Sat 23-Feb-13 18:15:11

Ooooh, Damian Lewis -- yes please.

Goldielocks66 Sat 23-Feb-13 18:15:10

A Damien Lewis and Benedict Cumberbatch sandwich for me though with Tom Hardy for dessert

Goldielocks66 Sat 23-Feb-13 18:12:59

Agree with all those bar Viggo - I don't tend to go for muscles or teen idol looks but Channing Tatum - Have you seen Magic Mike! I needed a liquid nitrogen shower at one point - nearly passed out

hwjm1945 Sat 23-Feb-13 18:06:30

Got to be damian lewis,developing real crush on him

StephaniePowers Sat 23-Feb-13 18:04:53

Not Fassbender - just no. Mean mouth and hard eyes.
But Dominic West does look rather like he's made for it grin

ThinkAboutItOnBoxingDay Sat 23-Feb-13 18:02:06

Hmmm. Yes as mcnulty not so much in real life. I saw him in the m&s food hall once. Very ordinary

NomDePrune Sat 23-Feb-13 00:09:51

yes, YABU. He has a toad mouth. Look it up on google images if you don't believe me.
