It’s hilarious to see all the buzz on Twitter tonight after Rick Springfield’s appearance on “True Detective.”
For all of those who haven’t been following his career and remember him only from the 1980s, yes he was made up to get that creepy look. (And just a reminder – the 1980s were 30 years ago, this is a TV show where people are acting and portraying made-up people and – yes, people do age over a 30-year period.)
And here’s the “before” picture:
When these photos were taken, it was around the time he was filming “Ricki and the Flash” – his movie with Meryl Streep that is coming out on Aug. 7 – where he plays an aging rocker.
And this is a recent pic:
(For some reason this photo was posted in reverse- his tattoo is actually on his left arm – and he usually signs them XO, but maybe he was out in the sun too long.) Oh, and he has a new CD coming out this year – and possibly even a sequel to his best-selling novel.
Did I mention he’s 65?
OK, that’s all I wanted to say. Buh-bye.
