I don’t know if you have noticed or not but we are currently living through the golden age of Martin Freeman. If you are breathing then you have probably seen him everywhere recently. Fargo, yeah. Sherlock, yeah. The Hobbit, yeah. The upcoming Captain America: Civil War, umm yeah. He’s also got stuff lined up for like the next year, so get ready to be excited in 2017+.
Tina Fey’s new movie Whiskey Tango Foxtrot comes out on March 4th and you can guess what my reaction was to finding out that Martin Freeman was not only co-starring, but was also my idol Tina Fey’s love interest?
Here’s the trailer, but trigger warning Martin Freeman is wearing short shorts in it at some point so get your paper bag ready.
It’s no secret that I am currently drowning swimming in the deep-end of the Johnlock part of the Sherlock fandom. (Johnlock=the shipping name for the Sherlock+John OTP) I mean somehow I have written a 22,000 word fic on AO3 that has no end in sight, also how does that happen idek. And through my entry into the fandom I have learned over and over and over again that Martin Freeman really is too good for this world. Needless to say I am ridiculously excited to see this movie. (Also he might have a very growly Scottish accent in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, which I know all of my Outlander ladies will appreciate)
Join me and let’s lie down on our therapist’s couch and get those totally normal feelings out in the open.
Can we just talk for a minute about how impeccably fantastic this man dresses? His Mod/Motown/jazz/Soho aesthetic is phenomenal. He kills it. Fun pocket squares and socks, contrasting patterns and textures. To use his own words, he’s not “fucking beige” all right?
We all know that Martin is known for his black belt in facial expression jiu jitsu, but it’s his smile that does it for me every time. I would actually like to know how his partner, Amanda Abbington, ever lets him leave the house? Amanda? Any ideas?
How dare you sir? How dare? The only consolation from being murdered is that we’re getting lots of scruffy Martin in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Huzzah!
I am going to spare you all of the countless GIFs I found of him licking his lips because I know that you have to adult and stuff today, but I just want you to know that we are so lucky to be alive during the golden age of Martin Freeman. Like a fine wine Martin seems to be aging towards perfection because we all remember this moment from Love Actually don’t we?
SWEET PUDDING POP.
And now, on Friday, we get this:
REST. IN. PEACE.
Who’s going to go see Whiskey Tango Foxtrot this weekend? Anyone want to come watch it with me in MI? I’ll bring the Skittles and Dr. Pepper!
