Drew Carey!

Some speculate that he has a hairpiece, but I'm not sure if he's just morphed his hair into some kind of weird combover. So I figure I'll post the pics and let you guys decide!

Here's Drew July 24, 2008, clearly the hairline is receding:




Here's some shots of Drew from March 25, 2009 - the return of Bob Barker to The Price is Right:






And here's another pic from just a few months ago:

Mel Gibson to be a father, yet again

It's official, Mel Gibson's girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva is pregnant with his child. This makes 8 children (that we know about) for Mel. No wonder he is losing his hair.

Mr. Oprah - Stedman Graham!




We've all seen this guy in the news - we see him walking next to Oprah, holding doors for her, taking her coat and carrying Oprah's purse. Well isn't it about time Stedman got some attention on his own? It's been hard doing this - when you google Stedman Google suggests that you may have meant "Stedman and Oprah." But now it's his time to shine, here's to this out and proud baldie.

Blast from the Past: Luke Perry!




Luckily my television/movie watching obsession has given me plenty of fodder for this blog. The other day I caught a rerun of a Law and Order: SVU episode with Luke Perry as the guest star. Sara Gilbert (from Roseanne) also guested in the episode that fans have dubbed "ghosts of television's past" and "90's flashback week."

He's definitely lost some of his Dylan McKay-ness as the years have gone by. The big part of what made Dylan McKay, well, Dylan McKay, was the hair. Which is now slowly receding. Oh well, he still has the furrowed eyebrow look to get him by.

Blast from the Past: Billy Zane!




Here's a vet of the business, Billy Zane. I'd say his most well-known role was as Kate Winslet's fiance Cal in Titanic. But this guy has been in the biz since the 80's. On imdb.com he has almost 100 different projects to his credits (although many of these I haven't heard of - gems like Taxman, God is in the TV, Starving Hysterical Naked, The Pleasure Drivers). Well, today I was catching up on episodes of the recently canceled Samantha Who? and thought the guy who played her boss looked a lot like Billy. Turns out it was Billy, minus those great locks he had back in the day...

Blast from the Past: Ethan Embry

This guy used to show up in all 90's teen flicks, Empire Records, Disturbing Behavior, That Thing You Do!, and most memorably as Preston in Can't Hardly Wait.





I was watching Vacancy a few weeks ago and thought the guy who played the Mechanic looked familiar. Turns out it is Ethan Embry. Minus a few hair follicles.

Vince Vaughn!

This one is no surprise. A lot of people debate if Vince wears a piece or a weave. All I know is his hairline is receding. But he's still the man. Still gets the hot chicks, like Brad Pitt's ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. Still gets the kick-ass movie roles (Wedding Crashers is one of my all-time favorite movies). So I expect to hear no complaining from Vince.


Vince in the days of Swingers:




Vince now:







Vince doesn't seem too photogenic in these more recent shots.

Politician James Traficant!

Instead of tricks up his sleeve, former Ohio Congressman James Traficant must have had tricks under his rug. He was expelled from the Democrat party after being convicted of taking bribes, filing false tax returns, racketeering, and forcing his aides to perform chores at his farm in Ohio and on his houseboat in Washington, D.C., and is currently serving an eight-year prison term with a projected release date of September 2, 2009.



I bet the jury saw that hair piece and decided he was guilty without even looking at the evidence. They could tell right away he was someone who made bad decisions in life.



I wonder if he was allowed to have his hairpiece in prison...

Larry Bird!



Larry Bird, former Boston Celtics star, must seriously need glasses because his hair piece isn't fooling anyone. Notice the two colors of hair, the lighter color on the top and the darker on the sides and bottom.


NCAA Championship Game - April 6, 2009


At least now we know why Larry Bird hasn't attempted a comeback like every other NBA all-star...he definitely let himself go a bit when he retired. One website thought this was a fat guy in a Larry Bird costume. If only that was the case...

Jerry Seinfeld!



Had a few cheesy tag lines in mind for Mr. Seinfeld like "No hair for you!" or "I'm not balding - Not that there's anything wrong with that!" Then I thought maybe the readers would be more creative than me. Do you have any to add? Post them as a comment or email them to me: baldouting@gmail.com

As for Mr. Seinfeld, his hair line has definitely receded. In the picture below it does look like he may have a weave, if I can get a better picture of that I'll be sure to post it.


Bee movie premiere - 2007



If he had a weave in 2007, he must have just let nature take it's course by the end of 2008. Here he is at the Sex and the City Premiere in October 2008:

Hollywood Fail: Sean Connery's 10 Worst Toupees




Click here for Hollywood Fail's 10 worst Sean Connery toupees. Funny stuff.

Dominic Monaghan!



Dominic is best know for his roles in Lord of the Rings (as the hobbit Merry) and as Charlie in Lost and is featured in X-Men Origins: Wolverine as Bolt/Chris Bradley. He's been on my radar for awhile, as he always combs the hair from the back of his head forward, a tell-tale sign that the front is thinning and/or balding.

Reader James W. gives us the perfect headline for this bald outing: "Dominic Monaghan is human too and not afraid to show it!"

Here's a picture of Dominic in February 2008 at the Grammy Salute to Fashion:

And here's Dominic in April, 2009:

You can see that the sides have receded a bit more, but Dominic doesn't care - he's an out and proud baldie and we salute him!

Steve Martin!

Thanks to reader David G. for this tip.

It looks like Steve has been balding for a long time, but has always hid it by combing his hair to one side. Here's Steve 10 years ago in Bowfinger:



Here's Steve now:



The Tom Hanks follicle follies

USA Today had an article today about Tom Hanks' hair. Click here to see the article and vote for which Tom Hanks character had the worst hair.

Also, they had a review of Angels and Demons, a bad review, which started off: "Apparently, the quality of movies based on Dan Brown's best sellers correlates directly with the style of Tom Hanks' hair." (Claudia Puig, USA TODAY).

Prince William update!

MindWalker commented on the previous Prince William entry *click here for entry* that the picture in the entry was about 2 years old and wondered what Prince William looks like today. Well here's some pictures from the end of April, 2009:

Worst movie hairpiece ever! Ben Kingsley

Normally I don't have one bad thing to say about Ben Kingsley, he is an amazing actor. But there are no excuses for this hair piece he wore in Bloodrayne. He has nothing on his head for the piece to attach to, so it just kind of sits on top of his head not fooling anyone.

Benji Madden of Good Charlotte



Benji's chronic hat wearing was the biggest tip off. He was never seen in public without one. But here are some pictures of Benji and girlfriend Paris Hilton sunbathing (or shade bathing?) from June 2008 that reveal the truth:








And now Benji has traded in the hats for a Moby inspired hair-do:



Benji, if someone as shallow as Paris Hilton knows you have a bald spot and still loves you what makes you think the rest of us won't?

Kevin Smith!

Looks like Kevin is an out and proud baldie - showing off his bald spot to the world!



He'll even point it out for you:





Now if only his friend Mr. Affleck will do the same...

Kian Egan of Westlife

Kian Egan is a member of British boy band Westlife, although at age 27 can we really call him part of a boy band?

Kevin Costner!

Thanks to James H. for reminding me about Kevin Costner. James writes: "It's about time someone takes this mother effer down a peg, wouldn't you say?" and since I did pay to see Mr. Brooks, I have to agree.

It appears somewhere between 2006 and 2007 Mr. Costner either became a human chia pet or had a hair transplant. I'm thinking it's the latter (although thinking of Kevin as a human chia pet is pretty funny). Here's Kevin in 2006:








And just a year later in 2007:
