I just realized the real reason why Danny Messer (Carmine Giovinazzo) is my second-favorite character on CSI: NY (after Mac Taylor, obviously). It's not the scruffy goatee, it's not the cute little wire-rimmed specs, it's not the buff bod, it's not the well-worn jeans, it's not the gets-into-trouble tuffness, and it's not the messy hair.

It's the accent.

Danny has that Noo Yawk accent, it's for real, and it makes me grin every time I hear it. He doesn't quite have the Bronx growl like Vic Morrow or Bobby Darin -- that would've made him perfect. But it's a great accent nonethless, and I dig it. I'm not a big fan of NYC itself, as it's a monstrous city and I don't like cities. But that accent -- oh baby!

  1. That's funny. I think he's HOT, and yeah it's the accent. He's my fave on CSI:NY. My second fave would have to be Eddie Cahill- not sure his character's name, but he kinda reminds me of Chris Barrett. Remember him? The guy you barked at, at Skateland eons ago?

  2. Danny is my favorite, bar none, but Mac and Don Flack are neck-and-neck for second place. And now that I think about it, Messer's accent was what attracted me to the character in the first place. Not that he's hard on the eyes or anything....

  3. No way -- Freestargirl and I have a thing for the same guy? Crazyness! That never happens! Lol.

    As for Don Flack (Eddie Cahill), I don't have thoughts on him one way or the other. But he really doesn't remind me of Chris Barrett -- other than being tall and kinda quiet.

    E's Dame -- I like Danny for the same reasons I like Kirby: he's scrappy and rash and mouthy and cool. And they're both my second faves. Come to think of it, a lot of the reasons I like Mac are the same as the reasons I like Saunders -- calm, efficient, extra good at their job, sweet but tough... mmm.

  4. Voices/accents are so very important, aren't they?

Agree or disagree? That is the question...
