Rupert Friend’s hair was crazy at the Creative Arts Emmys: would you hit it?

The Creative Arts Emmys were held last night in LA – you can read Deadline’s coverage here. I hope you don’t want me to do a fashion post out of, like, Heidi Klum and Cat Deeley, because I really don’t care. Maybe if they were wearing something really notable, but they weren’t. But as I was looking through the photos to see if there was anyone worth discussing, I chanced upon these Rupert Friend pics. LOOK AT HIS HAIR.

I’m assuming Rupert was there for Homeland, because he plays hottie CIA assassin/badass Peter Quinn. Quinn will be returning for Season 3 – he’s in the trailer and everything, and I have a spooky feeling that there is going to be some sexual drama between Quinn and Carrie. I also feel like Quinn and Saul are probably going to form some kind of weird alliance now that (SPOILER) half of the CIA has been blown up.

When Rupert had long hair and he was with Keira Knightley, I never had any feelings for him whatsoever. I thought he was a boring pretty boy, seemingly one of those English actors relegated to simpering in period costume. But his work as a contemporary American spy was a revelation, and now I’m totally hot for Rupert. But really, only Rupert-as-Quinn. Because these photos are kind of leaving me cold. It’s the hair. The hair is a MESS. So, would I hit it? Only when he was in costume and in character as Quinn.

    Eww. It’s like from There’s Something About Mary.

    He looks like a ferret.

  2. A says:

    I liked him better when he had long hair and was with Keira.

  3. A says:

    Maybe he’s trying to look taller?

    Well, I am going to need something to hit today so why not?

  5. CaribbeanLaura says:

    What does he look like as this Quinn character? No showtime so don’t know. these pics aren’t totally terrible though the hair is strange.

  6. Rachel says:

    I’ve never seen Homeland, and of course, I am disinclined to like the dastardly Mr. Wickham. But I do love The Young Victoria. Which I just watched again Friday. And he’s very good in it.

  7. Abby says:

    Dastardly Mr. Wickham. I liked him better with long hair… and I don’t really like long hair.

  8. ZinJoJo says:

    The hair is bad, but the facial hair is WAY WORSE! That fringe above his lip is just awful.

    I love Rupert Friend, but he needs a grooming intervention.

  9. Tiffany says:

    It looks like he has gained a bit of poundage since the breakup with Knightly. Boy, those two together looked like they could turn to the side and disappear.

    First time I’ve ever hated his hair. He looks great with his long lady locks and with his short Quinn badass hair. But this and the facial hair is blech. Love him as Quinn and in Cheri.

    Check Rupert & the fabulous Joan Plowright in “Mrs. Palfrey At the Claremont.” He’s gorgeous.

  12. Sally says:

    LOVE him. So handsome. Agree with Zin JoJo — the facial hair is problematic.

    So, are these two dating?

  13. Claire says:

    He is also just such a great actor. Love him in ‘Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont’
