We’ve all seen the trailers and clips of Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel and many of us have wondered about the beard. It’s been an on-again, off-again, almost running gag in the Supermancomics and cartoons. How exactly does Superman cut his hair, trim his nails, or shave his beard. Some of us fans have taken it to another level of worry, just check out what Conan has to say on the subject.
Below are a series of videos detailing each celebrity’s theory on how Superman takes care of that Super-Manly beard. After you’ve checked them all out you can vote for your favorite over at Gillette‘s YouTube page: Howdoesheshave.
I have to say that I find this type of movie cross marketing as one of the more amusing of the genre. Usually those commercials are annoying and an obvious cash grab with little thought to the subject matter. I prefer this more cerebral-tongue-in-cheek approach.
NBC tried to squash the little web series, but through determination and the outpouring of fans Untitled Web Series About a Space Traveler Who Can Also Travel Through Time couldn’t be stopped. Inspector Spacetime, as most of us know it, is working on its second season and they just cast the voice of B.O.O.T.H. or Bio Organic Omnidirectional Time Helix. Think of her as the Inspector’s TARDIS. If his TARDIS could regularly talk with him and starred on a hit 90s sitcom.
Mayim Bialik (Blossom, The Big Bang Theory) worked with series creator and star, Travis Richey, at ACME Comedy Theatre in Hollywood and after reconnecting a few years ago Richey asked Bialik to join the show. It’s only an audio role for now, but I wouldn’t put it past them to pull a “Doctor’s Wife” in the future and involve Bialik in a more fleshy, tangible capacity.
On casting Bialik, Richey said,
I am beyond thrilled to have Mayim involved with the series. Besides being an amazing actress, she’s a brilliant and wonderful human being. Her take on the personality of the BOOTH made us go in and completely rethink the character. It’s so much more interesting now, and of course we had add more lines for Mayim.
I am thrilled to be part of the Inspector Spacetime world. As a Doctor Who fan, Inspector Spacetime satisfies all of my theatrical and nerdy desires. Putting on an admittedly poor fake British accent and working with the awesome and talented Travis Richey made me feel like a bonafide nerd-girl.
Yes, because her role on Big Bang must make her feel like a fake nerd-girl. I kid, I kid. I’m stoked for Bialik to voice the B.O.O.T.H. and I can’t wait to hear what kind of personality she brings to it. Now, we just need to get Karen Gillan on board and they’re set! Richey told us at Gallifrey One they’ve written a role for her, so come on guys, start asking!
