So imagine our surprise when we strolled though his site to see a photo of Luke looking like he’d been voted off Survivor, escaped from Josef Fritzl’s cellar or at the very least stepped off a Chabad mitzvah tank.
We asked Luke what’s up.
TB: Nice new look. Is it religious-inspired or are you preparing for a movie role?
Luke: Yeah, the beard is a religious thing. I read an article in the February issue of Commentary magazine on the role of the beard in Judaism and then went to lunch and sat next to a guy with a beautiful long white beard — the singer Rick Moses, a fellow convert to Judaism — that I decided to grow a beard.
Have you given up all secular pursuits?
I have not given up all secular pursuits by any means.
Who do you endorse for president?
I don’t endorse anyone for president, but expect I’ll be voting for McCain. Uggh.
Anything else to report?
Could you mention or link to my live cam?
You got it.
