31 Days of Moustache: Bill Cutting/Daniel Plainview

Name: Bill "The Butcher" Cutting/Daniel Plainview
Profession: Butcher/Oil Man
Claim to Fame: Killed Priest Vallon/Created an oil empire
Prime YAM (Years Active with Moustache): 1860s/1910s

Why It's Awesome:
Both men portrayed by Daniel Day-Lewis. Both men complete bad ass motherfuckers. Both men had moustaches.

In 2002, Bill The Butcher appeared in Gangs of New York. Bill was the leader of the Natives. He was a butcher (hence the name). He was a master of knives with the ability of killing both men and animals.

In 2007, Daniel Plainview scared the hell out of us all in There Will Be Blood. Plainview was an oil man. A ruthless oil man. One that lied, killed, and abandoned. Maybe, the most unlikeable man ever to grace the screen.

The moustache added character to both villains. It brought the evil back in the 'stache.

Final 'Stache Rating (Out of Four Moustaches):

Daniel Day-Lewis pulled off the 'stache with two complete different characters. Both 'staches are also different in style. It is just another reason to admire one of the greatest actors to ever live.
