I posted this short little clip from the web series The League (no NOT that League) on Facebook this afternoon.
It shows Damon Betz as "Captain Hillbilly" throw Gordon Holmes as "The Blue Shadow" AKA Todd Britches through a table.
Since posting it, it has been suggested that since The Blue Shadow is masked, there's no proof that this is in fact Gordon Holmes.
Allow me to present:
EXHIBIT A: The Blue Shadow -
|Clearly Gordon's hair.|
A clear shot of the cast of the League: Kerry McElrone, Gordon Holmes, and Jim Burns. The only "fakery" in this photo is Jim's mustache.
That is undoubtedly Gordon's hair.
But Kevin, the mask...and the shot is rather far away. That really could be a stunt double with "stunt hair."
What the fuck is stunt hair?
EXHIBIT B: The Blue Shadow (Close up) -
|Come on! Look at the hair!|
Still, it could be anyone with a wig...albeit a perfect wig.
EXHIBIT C: Gordon Taping His Arm -
|Also the Hair!|
But the stunt double also would have had his arms taped up!
What kind of budget do you think we had on this shit?!?
EXHIBIT D: Gordon in the Ring -
|PROOF! AND HAIR!|
Well...it's kind of blurry.
Are you fucking kidding me?!?
If you had a clear photo of him without the mask in wrestling outfit, maybe...
EXHIBIT E: Mother F-ing Go-Ho!
Oh yeah...that's totally him. Who was it that suggested it wasn't actually Gordon, anyway?
That would have been Belly 2 Belly episode writer, Gordon Holmes.
Here's the full episode if you're curious:
