And the bad news just keeps coming...

Apparently, James is going to shave off his hair for charity tomorrow. How dare he?

Okay, I realise it's his hair and he can do what he likes with it, but...but...
It's gonna look horrible.

I'm with you all the way on that one!

Why do men persist in persuing the concentration camp look? It's awful!

I realise I'm being entirely unreasonable and selfish and all that, but...they've twisted my arm and in 7 weeks time I'm going to have my picture taken with JM (still not entirely over the shock and shame of that, I can tell you). I could just about justify it to myself as it being a picture of me and 'Spike', and I know my niece who is 10 years old and completely in love with our bleach-blonde vampire would think it the best b'day present ever (considering the fact that it can't be a picture of him and her because her mum won't let her come to America with me -- some rot about school and all that) if I surprised her with it a few weeks later...but now it looks like it's going to be a picture of me with some bald guy instead, I don't think she's going to be half as thrilled.

OTOH, I did read on the Internet somewhere that JM was looking forward to going his natural colour again, thinking it would lead to a wider range of offers (for parts)...and I think I can understand that. And shaving it all off'll will certainly speed up the process.

Still, I think it's a shame.

Well, I have to admit it's a personal gripe of mine due to Bob's head-shaving habits!

I realise he has to get rid of the hair and as quick as possible, doesn't mean I have to like it though. He looks so much better blond.

'Shock and shame', hee. that's absolutely the reason I couldn't do it myself! (oh and my terrible starstruckiress).

'Shock and shame' is entirely right. I still don't know what possessed me to agree to sign up for it...I console myself with the thought that I could still bolt or make that, bow out gratefully gracefully at the very last minute!

Personally, I'm kind of ambivalent about shaven heads. If the man in question is already mostly bald, then I think shaving off what remains usually results in a better look. But I used to have a boyfriend with a full head of lovely dark curls, and then he'd always shave them off in summer, saying it was less sweaty and much easier to manage, and I'd feel so deprived! I used to love running my hands through his hair, and getting all tangled up in it.

I've never had that pleasure with Bob. He's balding, so I get that, but he will have so short when it looks much better just a little longer.

Maybe you could ask to stroke his head?

Seriously though: I'm trying to imagine a bald-headed JM, and the picture my mind conjures up...well, it ain't exactly pretty! D'you think his ears will stick out a bit? And what with that scrawny neck of his...

With all that slicked back hair of the past, it might not look as bad as we think.

Yeah well, that remains to eb seen. Actually, I can't wait for the first pictures to come through!

Ooooookay.... we can find another way for you and Cass and I to commemorate MR. If you feel that strongly about it, G, we could probably cancel that particular aspect - let me know.

I am disappointed about it, too, if it indeed comes to pass. For one thing, it really brought home to me that there will be no Spike, either on Angel or as a spinoff, which hits me pretty hard, especially after all the stuff I have done the past two months to try to save the damn show. And shaved heads aren't my thing either.

However, I guess I understand where James is coming from, in that he is preparing for getting future roles, and this way is one which gets rid of his "Spike" look the fastest. Not my favorite idea, but...

Anyway, let me know about the photo op - I'm sure we can change things.

Cancel?! What are you, daft or something? ;-) No, no, no -- I do want that group photo of you, me and Cass; and if there's going to be a bald guy hovering in the background, then really, that's fine with me. The more, the merrier, right?

Don't mind me, I was just having a moment of being frightfully European and terribly embarrassed by my public display of fandom. I mean, I'm trying to be cool here, but I think I may have blown my cover...probably did so about 100 entries back, already :-(

Yes, it does seem a terrible shame, doesn't it, esp. after all the energy you put in -- that there's to going to be (or it doesn't seem likely at this point in time) a continuation of the Jossverse and Spike in any way, shape or form. Truly, it feels as if we're witnessing the end of an era.

But for JM as a person, and as an actor, I can certainly see why he would like to get rid of his blonde locks. He's been dying his hair for over 7 years now; anyone would grow tired of it eventually.
I was a bottle blonde for just over a year and by the end of that time, I was dying to get back to my natural hair colour (and then proceeded to dye it red, instead).

Waah! Now he's not gonna look his best when we see him standing in front of us singing his ass off! How dare he!

Not look his best? Of course he's going to look his best, it's James! But yeah, I get what you mean: he won't look anything like Spike, and that's definitely of the bad. Esp. since I've got no idea what his music is going to be like...

OK, he's getting it shaved tomorrow. Is he going to keep it shaved or let it start growing back? You have 7 weeks for it to start growing back, so he won't be bald for your picture with him. It won't, of course, be the Spike look we all dream about, but it won't be bald either. Most guys need to go for a trim about every 6 weeks or so anyway. Maybe it won't be so bad.

Maybe it won't be so bad will be my mantra for the next few weeks, as well as Maybe it won't happen at all, as there seems to be some confusion about whether or not James will appear on the Ryan Seacrest show at all...

Has this been confirmed yet? I'd love to watch it!

It seems Kristin from E!Online got it wrong: according to ghostgirl13, who spoke to the ticket guy on the Ryan Seacrest show where this event was rumoured to take place today, the production team were unaware of it as of yesterday. However, James is tentatively scheduled to put in an appearance there on April 27th, so it may still happen...just not today. We'll just have to wait and see, I suppose.
