Actor Michael Shannon Makes Scary Look Sexy – The Daily Swoon
Michael Shannon might be what some would call an acquired taste, but though he usually plays roles that are unnerving and kinda scary, he’s actually pretty darn cute.
Michael Shannon first gained notoriety in a small indie thriller called ‘Bug’ alongside Ashley Judd (and in which you can see him very naked), and followed that up with roles on the HBO series ‘Boardwalk Empire,’ and most recently in movies like ‘Take Shelter,’ ‘Premium Rush,’ and ‘Mud.’
In most of his roles he’s often intimidating and weird in an unnerving way, but that’s far from the real Michael Shannon — and what’s great about him is that he has a sense of humor about how he appears on screen. To wit: A couple of weeks ago, he did a hilarious reading of that crazy sorority girl letter for FunnyOrDie.com (below).
In the upcoming film ‘The Iceman,’ he plays the legendary contract killer, but in real life, he’s kind of a cuddly dude and very aware of the way people perceive him. Personally, I find something very attractive about his unique looks and acting choices.
You can check him out on the big screen this summer in ‘Man of Steel,’ but until then, watch this great video (language is very NSFW!) and peep some photos of one of today’s most interesting actors.
