11 Greatest Mustaches in TV History

11 Greatest Mustaches in TV History



  1. Graknar Lord of the Spider People says:

    So… why isn’t Harley going to be in Suicide Squad? Like, legitimately, I’m asking what the reason is behind that. Where did you hear that? I didn’t see that listed with the announced movies.

  2. Mark Hamill says:

    Honestly, the Bane impression could use some work. I’ve heard better.

  3. Loosh says:

    This is BS! Harley needs to be in it!

  4. Suicide Squad with no Harley? Travesty! Scrap the movie and start again guys.

  5. pallykax says:

    If they dont include Harley Quinn in the movie it means they havent done their homework about the suicide squad, which means its gonna be a shit movie, So dont get your hopes up about it.

  6. Johnny2cents says:

    I legitimately wonder if the reason Harley isn’t included is because she’s a gleeful character. Honestly. DC doesn’t seem to have ANY interest in happy heroes, even if the happiness is insanity-fueled. If they are sticking to this no-jokes policy, leaving out Ms. Quinzel makes sense, at least from their standpoint. Geez, I hope this doesn’t end up being a brooding “Ocean’s 11”, something I could see happening. But then again if Warner Brothers actually try to make a depressingly serious Captain Boomerang, the unintentional campiness may make this movie fun after all. Good luck with a grim boomerang thrower, DC.

  7. Seattle_Ray says:

    really?  no harley Quinn?  She is the best thing to come out of DCs mainline comics since her inception!  And NOT including her?  whatever.  DC being DC, or the continuation of blah DC movies by non Nolan film makers.
