DALLAS, Texas - With little or no other marketable skills beyond an amazing amount of God-given brawn, the only thing I have to offer is an award-winning head of hair; it is said to be a coif so magical it makes the Angels cry.
What I have learned is there is good hair, and Hollywood hair. My 'do was confronted with its own immortality when I interviewed actor Tom Welling. He has a supporting role in the new movie, Draft Day, which opens April 11. Welling is likely best known for his role in the hit TV show, Smallville.
This dude is scary good looking, but in a pinch I could probably take him. He is 6-foot-2, and a former Abercrombie and Fitch model.
"I actually hated modeling," he said. "It was so boring."
Can totally relate. I gave up my career modeling power tools for Woolworths because it was just so dull.
In the film, he has a buzz cut. By the time he was making the rounds for interviews, the hair looked good enough to do some more of those A&F spreads that he did with Ashton Kutcher.
"You actually have better hair than I do," he said.
Needless to say, I blushed. But, he's right. The judges gave it to me based on presentation.
Tom was a very nice, affable guy. Funny. Great looking. Look for the interview - it has a great goof on my part - later.
