Natural Curly Haired Actor Rufus Sewell As Dr. Jacob Hood in Eleventh Hour

Curly haired Rufus Sewell played the eccentric, but brilliant Dr. Jacob Hood in ELEVENTH HOUR on CBS.  Although he wore his hair relatively short, if you look closely you can see that he has lots of texture which consists of mainly curls with some intermittent wave patterns.

Although Rufus Sewell is a critically acclaimed actor, he was not as well known to American audiences.

Eleventh Hour was thought to be a show which was modeled after the popular SciFi classic The X Files.  However, Eleventh Hour failed to snag as large of an audience as desired and was canceled by CBS in May of 2009.  Rumors are still flying that the show may be picked up by a different network and rebroadcast.

Although this was not considered an option in the past, in today's high priced TV show arena, it happens more often than viewers might suspect.
