I personally believe that most who have seen him do as well ;)
Oh, this is fun!
Okay, so in 2010, I found out that HBO was doing a new war miniseries called The Pacific (fun fact: one of the leads of the series, Joe Mazzello? Yeah, his brother was my study hall teacher while the Pacific was filming!). I loved the other war series they did, Band of Brothers. It was one of my favorites. So, of course, I began watching The Pacific from the day it came out. I loved it from episode 1, everything about it.
Then came the end of episode 4. You know those previews after episodes of shows for next week’s episode? Yeah, I was watching that, and I heard this voice. I’m not kidding, all of a sudden my complete attention was on the screen: it was kind of this velvety, but at the same time scary voice, and I even asked myself, “who was that?”. Then he appeared on the screen, and I was surprised. This man was gorgeous, as cliche and shallow as that might sound, haha.
So the next week, I was watching, and he finally came up in his first scene, making fun of the lead, and from there, I was hooked. From his accent (which was a perfect but fake Louisiana drawl courtesy of Rami) to his eyes to just the way he presented himself, he was the scene stealer every time. I looked on Pacific fanboards and people were saying the exact same thing about him.
After I finished the Pacific, I went all out. I looked him up on IMDb, looked at all the stuff he had been in at that point: War at Home, Night at the Museum, his role in a couple episodes of Over There and 24, and even his literally 2 minute role in Medium and his 2 second role in Gilmore Girls.
Later, I found out that Tom Hanks was going to be soing a movie with him: Larry Crowne. I was so excited, and obviously saw it in theaters. I swear, whether that man is in a 100% serious role, or a hysterical comedy role, he always does it well. Then came his episode of Alcatraz, which was absolutely perfect, and I even saw Battleship for his role that only turned out to be around 30 seconds, lol.
I’ve seen every single thing he’s in now, except The Master! I need to get on that! It looks like a pretty good film.
So yeah, that’s my Rami story (: I was literally hooked from the first time i heard his voice, haha. There’s just something so unique about him, his presence is so strong that you can’t help but turn your attention to him every time he’s on screen. Plus, I’ve watched most of his interviews, and he’s so humble, down to earth, and hilarious. Love him.
Thanks for the ask, it was fun to relive it! xx
Hello! Awh, thanks so much, love, that’s so sweet! Yes, I think we can all agree on that ;).
Good question. I personally don’t follow any, I just track the Rami tag. I’m not sure there are many that are active.
I just looked a bit, and I found a couple: happykenny seems to be posting a lot of Rami. Also, look for blogs focused on the series The Pacific, those are much more numerous and are bound to have lots with him.
Sorry I can’t help more… one of the reasons I created this blog was because I couldn’t really find many active Rami blogs out there. :/
Any Rami blogs out there reading this, maybe ‘like’ this? Thanks!
Love the username, btw.
Haha, awh, don’t be jealous! Plus, I love that Rami’s fanbase is getting bigger now, he totally deserves it. Ugh, he is a beautiful man… like ugh congrats on your face, Rami.
omg, I went through a little hiatus and now I have quite a few asks in the box ((: when I get onto my computer in the morning, I’ll reply! Sorry to keep you all waiting :(
