Good Morning, Ronald

.
Today is the 39th birthday of the German actor Ronald Zehrfeld and I am actually quite disappointed about that -- see, I've been meaning to do a great big gratuitous post on Ronald for about a year now, at least ever since I first saw him in the terrific movie Barbara last spring. I mentioned him when I did do a great big gratuitous post (for the first time) on his countryman Alexander Fehling. And I mentioned Ronald again last week when I wished also-German Max Riemelt a gratuitous happy birthday. 

But Ronald keeps being delayed! And today I have an appointment this morning that's keeping me from doing an appropriately large post on him. So these gifs from the 2008 German TV movie Der russische Geliebte will have to suffice until I can organize myself. Sorry, Ronald! Until I do right by him y'all need to watch both Barbara and his more recent film Phoenix though - they are both wonderful, wonderful films. And until we meet again hit the jump for a couple more gifs of the birthday boy...

I like, getting a peak Brendan Fraser vibe from this one.

About time. ANd it would be worth taking that time, now he's beefed and scrunched up. I for one am waitung. Oh. And maybe you'd care to take a look at 2010s "in the face of crime" including Zehrfeld and Riemelt. ANd for (Florian Daniel) Fitz' sake probably the 1st (or more) minutes of "The lies of the victors".

I have an ENORMOUS folder filled with pictures of dear Ronald just waiting for me to post, so when I remember it will come!
