Guilty Pleasures Monday – Kurt Russell

First of all — GO GIANTS!! What an upset!! Way to go. I think Manning did an amazing job, but if I could, I’d give the entire Giants defense the MVP award as well.

Today’s Guilty Pleasure is an oldie but goodie — Kurt Russell.

I’ve loved Kurt for years and recently saw him in THE DREAMER a great horse movie based on a true story.

Also — he played coach Herb Brooks in the movie MIRACLE, about the 1980s men’s Olympic ice hockey team that defeated the undefeatable Russian team. I can’t believe I left this one off the list of sports movies the other day. My family and I have watched this one over and over!

Kurt has been in a number of movies, directed some and been nominated for a bunch of awards. Can we also say that he’s got great eyes, a wonderful body in his day and those to-die-for dimples?

Here’s some things I didn’t know about Kurt that I discovered at Wikipedia:

  • Kurt is the son of Bing Russell who played Deputy Clem Foster on Bonanza.
  • Kurt played baseball for the Angels Double-A Minor league affiliate, but an injury to his shoulder ended his career.
  • My hubby’s favorite Kurt Russell movie is BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, but I think I prefer MIRACLE, STARGATE or ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK.
