Clive Owen as "The Hire"

The other reasons are because he’s got a cool and calm demeanor, pretty good sense of style and (let’s be honest) when these movies came out all dudes wanted to be him in one form or another.

I guess I am going to have to figure out another excuse to write an article to show the other clips at a later time….


To create Essential Style for Men, mix 2 parts petrol, 1 part secret agent, 1 part rock and roll, 1 part hip-hop and a shot of tequila in a shaker with ice and vigorously shake for 20 seconds. Pour into a martini glass rimmed with explosives and have a supermodel serve for all your friends to enjoy.
