Have you watched HBO’s latest TV hit: True Detective? I haven’t seen it yet – it’s on the list – but according to my various social network feeds, it was a major hit. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson were bloody marvelous as Detective Rust Cohle and Detective Marty Hart, respectively. The real gem, though, was the performance given by Alexandra Daddario.
Daddario’s character may not have been pivotal to the plot and it’s true that she only appeared in half of the first season, but as soon as she was on screen there was no denying her presence. As my Mom would say: “Wow, she’s busty!” I’m not even kidding, Daddario has a great set of tits and my mother says things like that all the time. I can’t take her anywhere. My Mom, not Daddario.
I would take Daddario everywhere… if you know what I mean.
It’s strange, because I’ve seen Daddario before, in other roles, namely, as Annabeth in Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and in Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and she didn’t really stick out to me. Sure, she was cute and I had no complaints in regards to her acting abilities, but it wasn’t until I saw the best GIF evah (a.k.a. a video compilation of Daddario in True Detective) that I bothered learning her name.
Take a look and tell me if you can pinpoint the reason why this particular role seared Daddario’s name into my brain:
(Or you can watch it here)
Wow. Seriously, wow. this gif/video gives me so much wood. There may be no more wood left in the entire universe. It’s all mine. No wood for you.
