This article doubles as a beard appreciation piece as well as a movie/show recommendation – we will try our best not to give too many spoilers just in case you haven’t watched these.
Rick Grimes – Walking Dead
If you watch walking dead, then you know how influential this character is. He is the person you want around in case of a zombie apocalypse.
This show is extremely binge worthy so make sure you don’t watch it when you have an early morning.
Khal Drogo – Game of Thrones
Monday morning was a stressful time for those of us who were fans of this show. Going on social media was like walking through a minefield because of all the spoilers.
This is another binge worthy show, but you will need to brace yourself for a lot of heartbreak.
Pro tip: do not get attached to any character.
Honorary Mention: Tyrion Lannister/The Imp – Game of Thrones
We feel as though this character didn’t get enough love for his efforts in the show and his beard game as well.
Walter White- Breaking Bad
Did you notice the more this guy grows his beard the cooler and smarter he becomes?
Coincidence? We think not.
Chris Gardner- Pursuit of Happyness
You may recognize the picture on the right as a popular meme. This is a scene from the Pursuit of Happyness which is a film that will have you in all your emotions.
If you have kids, this is also a great film to watch with your son.
