Charles (a.k.a. Charlie) McDowell is not only the mastermind behind the funniest book I’ve ever read, Dear Girls Above me, but also a director, an actor, and he comes from an extensive bloodline of showbiz royalty? Here are a couple of reasons why he deserves all our love, my treat. Happy McDowell Monday #2!
Or inside my head at least.
- Surprisingly honest. Even though his debut novel, DGAM, was full of funny, awkward and exaggerated moments, the story is strongly based on his viral twitter feed (@charliemcdowell) and his life under and away from the girls above him.
They say honesty is the best policy, he just found a way to have fun with it.
I guess that sort of makes him a quadruple threat..?
- His tweets. Nuff said.I can’t stop laughing every time I either grab that book or read his twitter feed!
- He is the most resourceful person in the planet, comes from a long line of showbiz royalty, including him being the son of Academy Award winner Mary Steenburgen and A Clockwork Orange’s Malcolm McDowell. He also dated Broadway star and Glee Alumni, Kristin Chenoweth, as well as actresses Rooney Mara and Haylie Duff.
Talk about a Royal Bloodline!
You have check it out on Netflix right now!
- He gave us deargirlsaboveme.com just so we don’t have to scroll down over two years of non DGAM related content on his twitter account to get some Cathy & Claire bonuses.
You can check his archive right here.
- After dealing with the girls above him over three and a half years (see archive history on link from reason #7), the man is practically a saint.
At least they grow on him… sort of.
Pictures speak louder than words.
Yup, sound like the sort of lists we’d be doing in his position.
Bonus: His birthday was last Friday.
Happy Belated birthday Charlie! and Happy McDowell Monday!
Do you agree with my list? Do you know anything I might not know yet after our constant Charlie stalking, or as he might describe it, “a friend who active (reads? or…) listens?” Let us know in the comments section below!
