Kiss Him, He's Irish

see also: Kiss Her She's Irish

Happy St. Patrick's Day
Can you guess which famous actor these lips belong to?


Which pair are you most eager to plant one on?*
Hollywood sure does loves Irish men. If you know of friends who do... forward this link on and see how well they can do guessing these.

Updated: Highlight the text below for all the names (not in order) and you can try to figure it out on your own if you're just joining us:

Pierce Brosnan, Michael Fassbender, Richard Harris, Stuart Townsend, Spencer Tracy, Colin Farrel, George Clooney, Daniel Day-Lewis, Aidan Quinn, Kenneth Branagh, Gabriel Byrne, Liam Neeson, Peter O'Toole, Cillian Murphy and Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Answers are now posted in the comments. All that's left is the kissing.

* Straight boy and lesbian readers are non-exempt from this comment game but should probably avoid tongue so as to keep it platonic.

I'm terrible at these...

I can only say C is Colin Farrell.

E Dot said...

Wait, is H George Clooney?

do you have a flag? said...

Is N Tobey Maguire?

NATHANIEL R said...

ur right on both counts.

BeRightBack said...

Is "e" Jonathan Rhys Myers?

NATHANIEL R said...

N is not tobey maguire, no. Considerably less famous (newer) person... though I know of at least one reader who obsesses over him ;)

NATHANIEL R said...

e is JRM yes. unmistakable lippage there.

but who do y'all most want to smack on?

Murtada said...

I'd love to kiss A , Aidan Quinn..

Drew said...

B is Cillian Murphy, and he's most definitely the pick of the litter on the kissing front.

NATHANIEL R said...

u are both correct! And Murtada... I'm so happy to have an Aidan Quinn fan in the house. Remember when he was semi-popular in the 90s?

Drew said...

and I have a feeling N is Billy Crudup?

Catherine said...

M is Richard Harris. F is possibly Liam Neeson.

Benji said...

Definitely C, Colin Farrell, though preferably without the facial scruff.
And possibly N. not sure who that is, but what I can see sure looks nice.

Anonymous said...

J = Kenneth Branagh, he has no lips.

Marcelo - Brazil.

Anonymous said...

G = Pierce Brosnan

Marcelo - Brazil.

After I know all of them I will choose one to kiss, I am that picky.

E Dot said...

Um, duh. George Clooney. Sign me up ASAP.

Anonymous said...

M = Richard Harris.

Marcelo - Brazil.

Anonymous said...

K = Stuart Townsend, highly kissable.

Marcelo - Brazil.

NATHANIEL R said...

Catherine, you're right on both counts.

benji the rest of "N" is just as good.

anon 12:03 LOL.

NATHANIEL R said...

marcelo right you are. for some reason i thought nobody but Charlize Theron would get that one ;)

Anonymous said...

N is Michael Fassbender?

NATHANIEL R said...

YES. good work anonymous. Now everyone may precede kissing him.

Nick said...

D looks to be Gabriel Byrne

Middento said...

I'm sorry. Unlike Marcelo, I won't be able to answer this unless I kiss all of them first.

*puckering*

(hee!)

Benji said...

Michael Fassbender, of course! Should have recognized him, as a fellow countryman (well, half, at least).
I'll kiss him right after Colin Farrell (or in between?)...

Benji said...

M is John Huston, I presume.

NATHANIEL R said...

Benji -nope. but very famous stage/screen actor.

Benji said...

My next guess would be Anthony Quinn. He as Irish ancestry, doesn't he?

Anonymous said...

F is Eric Bana perhaps?

Benji said...

Blargh, I see, Richard Harris.
Boy, am I bad at this *lol

NoNo said...

Is M Peter O'Toole?

NoNo said...

no no...I is Petet O'Toole

NATHANIEL R said...

I is Peter O'Toole yes. More famous for those astonishingly BLUE eyes.

NoNo said...

Yay Me! For some reason I feel that O is the late great Paul Newman... :'-(

NoNo said...

and to take a stab in the dark K is Casey Affleck.

NATHANIEL R said...

NoNo No.

Aaron said...

is o burt lancaster?

Criticlasm said...

These are the ones I got that I don't think are mentioned..

e=Jonathan Rhys Myers
f=Liam Neeson
l=Daniel Day Lewis
O=Spencer Tracy.

Aaron said...

and i think l is daniel day-lewis

NATHANIEL R said...

criticlasm. Great eye there. aaron is also correct.

B Man said...

e is the one for me. Love Jonathan Rhys Meyers and his gorgeous lips

NATHANIEL R said...

the only one nobody has guessed yet is G

Pedro said...

G is Pierce Brosnan (sorry, i am late to this game).

Paul Outlaw said...

Is G Aidan Gillen? Or Ben Affleck?
It's not a Baldwin and it's not McDreamy...

Definitely kissable, though.

NATHANIEL R said...

Pedro is right! everything is guessed now.

Now all that remains is the kissing!

Wayne B. said...

really? L is Daniel-Day Lewis? nice, the lips i liked the most!

Christine said...

Hard to decide between Peter O'Toole, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Michael Fassbender. I guess I'll go with Lawrence-of-Arabia-era O'Toole, even with the orange makeup. Of the three, he is the earliest of all of my movie-star crushes. I was besotted with O'Toole after seeing Arabia on TV as a kid.

NATHANIEL R said...

wayne b -- yeah that's Daniel Day-Lewis from his short lived sex symbol days in Last of the Mohicans

Christine -- good choice.

vince said...

Clooney, Clooney, Clooney. And that boy from Mama Mia!

vince said...

... who was born in England, but I swear he looks Irish.

chris Na Taraja said...

I would kiss all the vowels, plus K and L.

Collin is usually sexy to me, but his lips look like a field of herpes....and that's not sexy at all.

looks like I kissed....

A Aidan Quinn
E Jonathan Rhys Meyers
I Peter O'Toole
K Stuart Townsend
L Daniel Day-Lewis
O Spencer Tracy

ah, that wouldn't be such a bad St. Pats

Jan-Ice said...

Loved this game. Didn't realise that I loved so many Irishmen! I'd have to start with Aiden, George, next of course, gorgeous Jonathan,Peter O'Toole and then Richard Harris from "This Sporting Life" days.Lovely daydreaming!
