Appreciation Day – Gil Birmingham

Dear Gil-

We took a break from appreciation Sundays to feature all the awesome entries in our Imma contest last week but it’s once again Sunday and it’s time to show some reverence to one of our favorite actors in the Twilight saga. It’s time to appreciate you. After all you’re Billy Black, you’re Jacob Black’s dad, you come bearing gifts such as Harry Clearwater’s fish fry and most importantly, you’re down with the kids! Not to mention you were somewhat of a foxy beast in your day (ok, and now!).

Here’s are the reasons we love Gil…

Gil’s Twitter
You’re so down with the kids you even have a Twitter, you PFach and Billy Burke help keep us up-to-date on not only Twilight news but also tweet some of your own personal pictures and hilarious happenings. Including one of our very own entries in last week’s Imma contest!

Follow the cut to read everything we appreciate about Gil

You could have been in the 70’s version of the Wolfpack

(starting at :55)
Here is some vintage Gil in Dianna Ross’s music video for a song aptly titled “Muscles!” Check him flex it while Dianna withers and rolls on the bed looking super frustrated. I mean she has GILL BIRMINGHAM lifting up her bed whilst shirtless and she can’t do anything about it. Ugh, the unfairness of it all. Keep an eye out for Dianna Ross flying over what looks to be a Christmas village but will end up giving you a Birmingham smile.

Gil’s MySpace
Gill still rocks a MySpace like it’s 2005. I just hope someday I can be one of his top friends. I might actually need to log in to MySpace to make that happen but I’ll worry about that later.

Gil love’s a good cast picture
And I thought the one of you KStew and skinny Taylor from the Twilight set last year was the pinnacle but then you go and post stuff like this this week!
Oh Gil! You and the Wolfpack ladies?! You animal!

Did someone call for a Forest rescue team?

Gil’s musical ability

Gil makes the Twimom’s panties drop when he starts strumming that guitar and singing all sexy like. Meow! Or I guess the appropriate term would be: Grrrrrr!

And lastly… well you guessed it…

He’s Down With the Kids

Oh Gil how we love you, how your little quips helped make Twilight a killer movie for us and how much we hope that you have more awesome lines in New Moon and Eclipse and God willing Breaking Dawn. We just wanted to show you a little Sunday appreciation!

Just keepin’ it real,

PS Are you following Gil on Twitter? You should! He tweeted the Imma entry this week! Are you following us here at LTT?
PPS I will update you on the scream awards tomorrow! It was amazing, we’re still freaking about the NEW footage from NM and all the stars we saw!!

What’s your favorite thing about Gil? What do you appreciate? And what scenes with Gil/Billy Black are you most looking forward to in New Moon?

    Love you Gil. I am going to spam you on Twitter today w/ a link to this article in hopes that you read it. I’m sure you will as you are “down with the kids.”

  • bobbygee

    This is ahoot. I love it. This cat can really get down and get funky. http://bobbygee.wordpress.com/

    • TeamSeth

      That cat sure can, bobbygee!

    • themoonisdown

      tell us about it Bobby!

    • Shleeeigh

      ‘Cat!’ Yes! Love you Bobbygee!

  • tuesdaymidnight

    I’ve embraced the fact that I have decidedly impure thoughts about Billy Burke and his copstache… after this post I’m afraid I may start having them about Gil as well…

    • whyamidoingthis

      Agreed. Twilight is just my personal man-fest. Too many sexy men. Except for Buttcrack Santa. I shoulda been an actress.

    • TeamSeth

      Billy Burke is amazingly gorgeous. Have you ever saddled up to his twitter site? The background image is… whew.

      • lapushbaby


        • TeamSeth

          Yeah is right, lapushbaby [la push]. (okay, I’ll go if you stop saying that.)

      • tuesdaymidnight

        The untied bow tie?? Oh… my…

        • TeamSeth

          um, yes. that is the one. it says to me, “Are you tired? Are you hungry? Sit down. Have some plaid!” ::swoon::

  • Jessica

    You’re killin me! What is the new footage?
    P.S. You girls are brilliant!

  • Ashley Frag (Alice)

    THIS IS BY FAR, ONE OF MY FAVORITE POSTS!!! GIL is not only an awesome actor in Twilight (he’s got the evil disapproving glare going on), but he has a RIVETING secret music video, and look at those muscles! Gil is also a talented musician. I wish we gave awards for these appreciation days because he deserves one for being “DOWN with the KIDS!” Let’s get him an honorary pair of Jorts!

    Love you, GIL!

    <3 Ash

    • TeamSeth

      honorary pair of jorts! 🙂

    • themoonisdown

      hahahaha honoary pair of jorts to wear in the wheelchair! get it done wolfpack!

      • gizmo

        Oh man.. I shouldn’t be laughing at this.. Can’t help it though.. I’m sure he would be ‘down’ with that..

  • Ashley Frag (Alice)

    I can’t WAIT for the Scream Awards post…I’ll get those pictures up ASAP. Probably tonight for sure. 🙂

  • Dani

    i LOVE gil’s twitter. he makes my day.

  • TeamSeth

    I’m so excited that Gil twittered the Imma contest entry about him. And he said he “loves this one” and he loled!!!!! So exciting.

    I love the scene where Gil and Robward have the crazy eyes staredown… “complications” 😉

    Gil totally reminds me of this guy I used to work with. He’s got the EXACT same hair and dresses real casual (Pink Floyd shirts to work with black denim jeans…not even on a Friday either!) and he plays guitar and sings too. Plus he says amazing comments, for instance once he was coming to my photography showing and I called to see where he was at and he replied, “Oh I’m just spreading my mac all over town.” Nearly pissed my pants. He turns 58 next year. OMG. I miss him so much.

    • themoonisdown

      dude i couldnt find the complication clip!! i was sad

      • Kate

        I watch Twilight yesterday with a Twilight virgin and during the complications scene she asked, “Is that what Stephenie Meyer means by “glower?” It made my day!

        • TeamSeth

          HAHAHAHA! That’s amazing Kate!

      • TeamSeth

        I thumbs down you (not that you can’t see…) because “um, that’s lame” that the clip is no where to be found. It’s one of the better parts of the film.

        “Mornin’ Hellbeast!”
        “Mornin’ minor character!”

        ps-today my SO had to go buy jeans at the Guess Outlet and there these tight plaid shirts in the front display and all I could say for the whole time we were there was, “Sit down! Have some plaid!”

  • lapushbaby

    I actually got to say that I was “down with the kids” a while back when a carload of young hooligans were admiring my car. NO ONE GOT IT!! But I thought that I was hilarious, so that’s what counts….

    Gil is an amazing and diverse actor, wow, what a talented guy! I would say that he was under-utilized in Twilight, except he made every scene he was in perfect! That stare-down with Edward is priceless.

    Whenever I see that scene of Jacob and Bella in the truck, I cannot stop staring at the line of wig-tape on Jacob’s forehead. Cause Imma dork like that….

    Happy Sunday, y’all!

    • themoonisdown

      so disgusting!!!!!!! i hate that stupid wig!

    • TeamSeth

      I’m so glad you got to use that line. That’s probably my favorite line from the movie.

  • faerierebel

    It’s one thing to use Twitter, but to seriously answer fans back… That there is sheer awesomeness and Gil does that. And he’s down with us kids.

    And seriously, Gil, reading LTT… THAT’S NORMAL! (Stephenie does it too!)

  • e

    Gil is the bomb diggity! He’s the kinda celebrity I could totally picture myself sitting around a bonfire drinking some beers with!

  • Illegalwolflover

    I wish Gil and buttcrack santa (RIP *spills contents of liitle bottle on the floor*) would have a “kitten meow” sing-off….
    I think i need some fresh air….
    and kudos Ashley….he would totally rock a pair of jorts…
    what i wouldnt give to see him phasing and *ahem* phasing back with the rest of the pack….lol
    we should totally start a “billy black for wolf” campaign!!!

    • cledbo

      i <3 your screen name so bad.

      • Illegalwolflover

        aaaawww. i <3 your comment. are u sure it isnt creepy? like some awful mix of Dateline and beastiality? considering my unhealthy Taycob obsession…

        • tuesdaymidnight

          Less than four months! Uh, not that I’m counting. 😉

          • Illegalwolflover

            me neither…*disables Taylor countdown*
            not that a 6 year diff will turn him off….mmmm
            *composes herself*
            till then we have Gil….we <3 u scrum-diddly-umptious DILF u… 😉

          • TeamSeth

            6 years is so like 20 years less than most people.

  • Krystle

    The funny thing about the “I’m down with the kids” line is when I first heard it, I thought he meant he was down with Jacob and Bella mixin’ it up. I don’t know why – I think because he said it all sassy like that.

    I watched that whole Muscles video….and my eyes are now tainted……that was so f’d!!!! Orgy of muscles in Dianna Ross’ bed?? Yuck.

  • TeamSeth

    No one noticed this, but Johnny Depp kind of looks like he’s going through chemo in that shot. Is he sick, or is he just looking thin and wearing Robsten’s beanie?

  • Illegalwolflover


    Thats why i love this site…no one makes anyone feel creepy….for loving over and under the age limit lolz…its like a warm happy family meeting in Eddie’s van….
    U guys rock!

  • cj
  • cj
  • Yeah, sorry. You got me all messed up with that ‘down with the kids’ clip. Billy, Gil AND Taylor! (Bless his heart, I try hard to overlook that damn wig.) HOTT MEN! Whew!

    And as a bonus, Kristen actually looks remotely happy in that scene! Yay!
