Good Morning, Kretschmann

It's not Thomas Kretschmann's birthday today or anything - I was just missing him. You don't see nearly enough of him in the trailer for that Jonathan Rhys Meyers Dracula show (have you watched that yet? I actually totally want to watch that show) that's airing this Fall, where TK's playing Van Helsing; you just get a couple quick glimpses. (I like the beard he's sporting though. )

Anyway these shots here, most erotic bookshelves and all, are from a turn he did on German TV way way back - there was this very Columbo sounding show called Derreck that ran for 24 years, from 1974 to 1998, and Thomas was on it twice in the early 90s (he played a different character each time). (via)

I wish I could find video footage of all this old stuff he did in the late 80s and 90s when he was so young and gorgeous, there's tons of it. I mean he's old(er) and still totally gorgeous now, but in case I haven't driven the point home by now, it's all about quantity. I want it all.

I prefer him now - a little more filled out.
