Fangirl Friday – Jeffrey Dean Morgan

21 Jun

Object of my obsession Jeffrey Dean Morgan – April 22, 1966

My favorite creations: John Winchester – Supernatural, Clay – Losers,  Comedian – Watchmen

Yes I missed Chris Evans, that should say a lot, considering he was pretty much playing a geek and that’s one of my types.  But back to Mr. Morgan. He’s got that easy coolness about him combined with that slightly grizzled appearance that brings up daddy issues you didn’t know you had.  And he’s only like 5 years older than me.

Sam, John, and Dean Winchester on Supernatural

Speaking of daddy issues, Supernatural.  Despite the good looks of Moose, I mean Sam, and Dean Winchester, the thing I was looking forward to when this year we finally decided to watch the series from the beginning  was Jeffrey Dean as their Papa, John.  As any Supernatural fan will tell you, to love the Winchesters requires a willingness to have your heart broken, over and over and over again.  And Mr. Morgan does it in spades on this show with great subtlety on his part.  You never doubt that he is the patriarch even though, in reality, he is only 12 and 16 years older than the actors playing his sons.  He’s just so very…manly for lack of a better word.

I think TV shows are my favorite vehicle  for seeing Mr. Morgan because you get to see him really develop a character.  This also may be because nearly everything I’ve seen him in on the big screen he’s been part of an ensemble cast.  Of course now the current series he’s on (Magic City) is on paid cable or paid streaming. But from the previews a girl may just have to spend her lunch money to see it.  Wonder if Papa Winchester can lend a girl a few bucks?

Couldn’t find a non-spoilerific clip of Magic City, so instead one of my favorite not heartbreaking scenes from Season 1 of Supernatural.
