If we were to guess at a celeb who might actually be in with a chance of dragging the mullet trend back from the 80s, we’d bet on Rihanna or Miley Cyrus. Doctor Who actor Michael Sheen wouldn’t have placed top of that list, but he’s certainly working to bring the look back from extinction.
Appearing in new promo snaps ahead of the release of Sky’s Last Train to Christmas – in which Michael stars as a nightclub manager – the actor is seen looking nothing short of majestic with a curly mullet crop.
It hasn’t taken long for the image to find its way onto Twitter, where fans are giving mixed feedback on the retro look.
“Petition for Michael Sheen's quiff and mullet to have its own postcode,” says one, echoing a joke made by Sky that it deserved one.
“Therapist: Michael Sheen with a mullet does not exist, he cannot hurt you. Michael Sheen with a mullet:” jokes another, adding an image of the mullet to highlight the point.
Another simply calls the style “startling”.
The promo images show Michael posing with Game of Thrones beauty Nathalie Emmanuel, who has had quite the 80s hair transformation of her own. Natalie shared the image to her Instagram, where fans have been a lot more encouraging about her look than Michael’s (don’t you listen, Michael. It’s a thing of beauty).
“The nails, the attire! Living for it,” says one, while another comments: “Watching it just for all the hair.”
Nathalie’s followers couldn’t help but send a bit of mullet banter Michael’s way, with one joking: “That haircut should be banned as a deadly weapon.”
Last Train to Christmas, which is being likened to A Christmas Carol (but think more gold bling and 80s quiffs), is set for release on Sky Cinema this December 18. If Michael’s acting prowess isn’t reason enough to watch the film, perhaps you might tune in simply for a sight of the mullet in all its moving glory.
That’s our Christmas plans sorted.
