Monday Moustache: True Moustache Grit

Third Strike took a little vacation due to a combination of severe writers block and allegations that "work-work" needs to be done on the job. Luckily, we're back, full of spicy zingers, and ready to take on the Internet. ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO HAVE WAITED!

Today marks the twenty-eighth post in a recurring segment on moustaches.

Today's moustache:
Matt Damon as Texas Ranger LaBoeuf

Matt Damon is one of those ridiculously good actors who has been nominated for several Academy Awards, ranging from Best Supporting Actor for Invictus to actually winning the Best Original Screenplay for Good Will Hunting. Plus, he kicks some major ass in The Bourne Identity and its sequels.

But never has The Talented Mr. Damon actually won an ACTING Oscar. And that's truly criminal. Yet another year has gone by where Damon's talents went overlooked-- this time for his underrated role in a slightly overrated film, True Grit.

True Grit wasn't all that great a film, all in all; the ending is disappointing and some of the suspense falls flat. However, no one can deny that the performances in the film are fantastic. Jeff Bridges' Rooster Cogburn is a pretty epic portrayal from the beloved "Dude".
"I lost Best Actor to some British stuttering? What about my drunken mumbling!"
While Matt Damon clearly had a supporting role in the film, he had one thing that neither Jeff Bridges, Colin Firth, or the real Texas Ranger Shia LaBeouf had: an epic moustache.

Nice Try, other LaBeouf, but that moustache ain't cuttin' it.
Texas Ranger LaBoeuf carries the movie by impressively sniping off villainous bandits, almost losing his tongue, and fighting an army of Decepticons that are in Egypt for some reason. And then he went to robot heaven...

Hollywood clearly has not heard the cry of the masses for more moustache wins. However, as is common, they've gotten the partial gist of what the people want, and thereby awarded Best Supporting Actor to Christian Bale's beard.
Luckily, no one was fixing lights distractingly during Bale's acceptance speech
