As far as it goes with all my favorite actors, Karl probably took the longest way to make it on that list - considering that I saw him for the first time almost 10 years ago, when my local TV station aired "The Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers". But it should take until about two years ago to bring him to my full attention, when I saw "Almost Human" for the first time. I still have the better part of his filmography to watch, but I'm slowly getting there. Oh, and in case you should wonder about the title of this entry - Karl was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand, and as we all know, these folks usually get the nickname "kiwi" (and most of his fans call him that way, too) This set was made for the current round over at [profile] gents20in20. Enjoy!

Handsome kiwi this way... )

At first glance, Round 79 over at [livejournal.com profile] guys20in20 is a rather usual one. You choose a guy, make 20 (or more) icons of him, and that's it. But - and that's a big but - not this time. This time, we had to include one of the guys in the banners for the rounds in 2016 and our second choice in the set.

My first choice was Robert Downey jr. Like none other actor, he's a living, breathing synonym for overcoming even the lowest low in life. As you might remember, he even went to jail back in the 90s before getting his footing back and rising up to be one of the most popular actors of our time. Very inspirational for your own bad times, that's all I'm saying.

For my second choice, I picked an actor that has, similar to Jeremy Renner, been lurking in the back of my mind, ever since I first saw the second and third part of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy - Karl Urban. Back then, he played Eomer, leader of the riders of Rohan. But it should take until seeing "Almost Human" for the first time (which was in late 2015) to push Karl to the front.

Last but not least, the "Remember 2016" icon space goes to an actor that has been taken from us way too soon, and in probably the freakiest way ever - Anton Yelchin. He also is kind of a bridge between the other two guys. Robert did "Charlie Bartlett" with him, and Karl was one of his teammates on board of the starship Enterprise in the "Star Trek" Reboot.

Enjoy!

Guys, guys, guys.... )
