They don’t come much more hilarious than “Veep”s Matt Walsh, they don’t come much more bald either…well balding, because there’s only so completely bald someone can get before you start taking off their eyebrows and entering alopecia territory. So that leaves us with the kind of bald that Matt Walsh is rocking, a bald that your average critic would simply report as the beginnings of a “horseshoe pattern” or a “major recession”. However, that kind of reporting simply wouldn’t do Matt Walsh’s head any justice, because it’s really a majestic example of a man losing his hair and being too damn awesome to give a crap about it!
Since he first caught the public’s attention as a founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade, Walsh has seen his already receding hairline work its way further and further back on his head, to the point where your average Joe would either shave it all off, rock a comb-over, or get a super short haircut with what’s left. Not Matt Walsh though, he seems to kind of just cut his hair however he feels like cutting it, whether it be a close crop or a wild overgrown bushes kind of thing. He basically styles his remaining hair however he wants, with zero regard for how it interacts with his huge bald spot. It’s almost like his hair is its own entity that he doesn’t need, but respects enough that he takes care of it and allows it to live on his head. Like an old parrot that used to belong to your grandpa, but he left it to you in his will so now you have to develop a begrudging respect for it that eventually blooms into a full blown friendship! And get this: You own a bar together! Sorry, sometimes I just break out into 80s sitcom pitches. Anyhow, Matt Walsh has appeared in movies like “Old School” and “The Hangover”, and even though he may never get top billing, he will always get character work in comedy films and television because he’s just too damn funny not to cast. He’s bald, and he’s so funny that his mere presence makes me give whatever project he’s in a chance, so for those reasons I’d like to welcome Matt Walsh into The Bald Army! Also, his Wikipedia page and personal website are the first results when you search for his name, despite there being an NBA player also named “Matt Walsh”, so he’s literally the best at being himself!
