Here's a reveal that should surprise no one: Best Actor Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis, famous for going to any length necessary to flesh out his film roles, actually grew a beard for "Lincoln. " Like he would have worn a fake one? Asked what it felt like to be wearing a beard during filming, a humorously incredulous Day-Lewis retorted, "What do you mean wearing it? Do you wear your hair?" The questions got better after that, as Day-Lewis talked about his initial reticence about playing such an iconic American as our 16th president.

Don Scott will sign off for the last time Friday morning at WJZ -TV after 40 years at the station. Tens of thousands of Baltimore viewers have started their day with him for the more than three decades that he's been at the station's morning anchor desk. That's a run not likely to be duplicated by many in the new media world. And WJZ has consistently finished at or near the top of the ratings during that time. I talked with the 64-year-old broadcaster this week about his final days on the air in Baltimore.

One of the biggest sideshow attractions at Tuesday's Media Day circus was Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel, who is sporting a beard that makes Zach Galifianakis ' facial hair look like a little scruff. The beard has become so legendary, it actually got interviewed by FOX Sports' Alex Marvez. "It's really not that itchy," Keisel told Marvez on Tuesday. "I shampoo and condition. It's actually pretty soft. People are pretty surprised when they touch it. I've gotten used to it. " Keisel's beard inspired NFL Network to rank the top 10 beards in NFL history, and the homeless man's beard of Ravens safety Ed Reed was seventh on the list.

A Baltimore County Council candidate is crying foul over a campaign mailing by his opponent that highlights arrest records. In a mailing delivered to voters this week, Councilwoman Cathy Bevins claims challenger Jeff Beard has a record of "committing crimes. " The two face each other in the June 24 Democratic primary, vying to represent the district that includes Middle River and Essex. The mailer from Bevins' campaign says Beard was arrested and pleaded guilty to DUI; was arrested on three counts of battery; and was charged with resisting arrest.

I appreciate a good beard when I see one -- maybe it's because I can't grow one above my neck -- so I am bummed out to see that Orioles starter Jake Arrieta had shaved off his amazing Al Borland beard from FanFest. In case you missed it, the beard was breathtaking .  Yes, I know it's because the Orioles have a facial hair policy, which is ridiculous. How can Koji Uehara grow sideburns like these but Arrieta can't take a page out of Brian Wilson's book ? I guess it's to avoid a situation like this one (sorry, Nick Markakis)

Davey Johnson says he won't shave until his team's bats heat up. This promises not to be a good look. He may want to re-think that decision. The Washington manager is 70 years old and the Nationals show no signs of coming out of their hitting slump after their 6-2 loss to the Orioles Monday. And old guys with heavy whiskers can end up looking like derelicts or nutty-professor types, which is not exactly what you want to see from the guy who...

ARLINGTON, Texas — The debate over which Super Bowl XLV team has the edge can be argued convincingly from either side. On this, however, there's no splitting hairs: Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel has the best, most-prodigious, most-talked-about beard of the week. And not just by a whisker. "There's no other beard that matches it," conceded Keisel, trying to maintain some modesty, "so it's just 'The Beard.'" Just about every other Steeler has some sort of facial hair — including the coach and quarterback — but none of those guys has both a Facebook site and Twitter account (neither started by him)

Vikram Sunderam of Rasika in Washington won the 2014 James Beard award for "Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic," beating out Baltimore-based chefs Cindy Wolf of Charleston and Spike Gjerde of Woodberry Kitchen. The awards were announced at a ceremony at the Lincoln Center in New York on Monday evening.  Both Wolf and Gjerde have made it to the finalist round before, Wolf in 2006 and 2008, and Gjerde in 2013. But a win on Monday night for either Wolf or Gjerde would have been a first for a Baltimore chef.

Bryan Voltaggio's recent announcement that he'd be opening a restaurant in Baltimore arrived like a complimentary dessert — something you appreciate all the more because it isn't expected. "OHMAGAWD" and "yeeeeeesss!!!" were a few of the reactions on Twitter. But the "Top Chef" alumnus said he had wanted to come to Baltimore for years. It was just a matter of finding the right place, said Voltaggio, who co-owns Volt, his flagship restaurant, and Family Meal in his hometown of Frederick, as well as the meat-centric Range in Washington's Chevy Chase.

A gun-wielding man wearing a "fake Santa beard" robbed a bank in downtown Laurel on Saturday morning, firing at least one shot but injuring no one, according to Laurel Police. "He walked into the bank and fired off a round" with a handgun, said Pete Piringer, a police spokesman. "He was very quick, didn't have to spend too much time in there. " The man entered the PNC Bank at 390 Main Street just after 9 a.m., and fled the scene shortly after with an undisclosed amount of cash in what appeared to be a maroon sedan, Piringer said.

I resent the necessity, the time spent, and the discomfort, and still every morning I take up a small blade and drag it across my face. Shaving is the most disagreeable daily chore. Don't bother to offer suggestions. I have tried electric razors and safety razors, pre-shave lotions and alcohol-laden aftershaves, improved blades with advanced features and primitive blades, shaving foam. shaving gel, shaving soap, hot towels, emollients. (No straight razors. My powers are somewhat under a cloud in the morning, and I'd just as soon not cut my throat.)

Missy and Rob Altenburg and their 9-year-old triplets laughed last Sunday when Monet, their 15-month-old bearded dragon, jumped up to snag an unsuspecting firefly. The family often took Monet outside in the afternoons for some fresh air and exercise in their Jarrettsville yard, and joked about glowing poop after his snack. Their amusement turned to sorrow the next day, however, when Monet began shaking and throwing up. A quick call to the vet produced horror: Monet's body was filled with toxins from the fireflies, and there was nothing anyone could do. At 3 p.m., he died.
