Supporting actors that kick ass

Supporting actors that kick ass

Leo from That 70’s show: We have never seen a more spaced-out, clueless, weed- happy, hippy loser in all of television. Leo, proud owner of the Foto hut where Hyde works, is full of little gems of brilliance. Sample this: Leo: You drive. I can’t since my licence got suspended. Hyde: What for? Leo: It fell into my glass of soda. And it just hung there. Suspended.

Roger Sterling from Mad Men: While every character on Mad Men is nuanced enough to inspire their own show, it’s Roger Sterling, that slim silver haired genius, that we are especially fond off. Maybe it’s because he’s never seen without a drink in his hand or the fact that he has mad game. It could also be his dry, witty humour.

Tom Haverford from Parks and Rec: We totally love Ron Swanson, but we pick Tom Haverford for his pure ingenuity. He has kickass business ideas, kickass made up names for every thing (eggs are pre birds or future birds), his house is a dream, he makes up songs on the spot, he’s weird, he’s a freak, he’s friends with Jean Ralphio, he invents drinks, he invents perfumes, he’s a cashmere, velvet, cashmere candy cane…we could go on you know.

Sheela from Shameless: She’s weird but she’s strong. She’s crazy but she means well and she’s a right old bleeding heart. We would totally call her a saint if it weren’t for her ideas of a good time in bed.

Jack McFarland from Will and Grace: Why this show wasn’t just called Jack and Karen is truly a mystery. Jack McFarland deserves his own show for so many reasons, his love for Cher, his singing, owning his own tiny café in the hallway but mostly for his kickass dancing skills he picked up as part of JLo and Janet Jackson’s troupe. Jack hands!

Our favourite TV apartments

Our favourite TV apartments

Tom Haverford’s house, Parks and Rec: However much of an idiot he is, Tom Haverford does things in style. Including his crib. We really can’t make up our minds about this man’s house. Is it incredibly cool or incredibly gay that he has hand moisturiser and exfoliator lying around at random? Or a soft-as-a cloud-bed made with seven zillion thread count linen?

The studio guest house, Bunheads: Michelle from Bunheads moves into a studio apartment/garage so gorgeous that it made us cry (and that’s saying a lot, considering one of us works in an interiors magazine) Lamps shaped like bee hives, pale walls, a wicker rocking chair, a royal blue bathtub with Queen Anne legs, screen doors with a view.

Joey and Chandler’s, Friends : In stark contrast to the perpetually pretty apartment next door, Joey and Chandler’s apartment has gone through some good and bad phases. The wall unit that didn’t really fit, the barcaloungers, the replacement barcalounger with an attached ice box and speakers, the foosball table, the boat couch, the picture-of-a-baby-on-the-wall-and-potpourri-on the table, so many phases; so much personality.

House’s House, House MD (haha): Now this is a house we’d love to live in. Warm colour scheme, Books lining the walls= one million (approximate), Grand piano (one) and scotch (that never runs out). House’s apartment is pure class.

Sherlock Holmes’ house, Sherlock Holmes: 221 B Baker Street, Sherlock Holmes’ apartment is a mix of eclectic and confused genius. A printed wall with bullets lodged in it, a leather couch, a study table and human thumbs in the refrigerator. The apartment will tell you who the resident is even if you didn’t ask.
