eing a huge fan of “Californication”, I simply have to mention Hank Moody’s hands. Since the first the I watched the show I have been fascinated by the way David Duchovny uses his hands to create the character of Hank Moody. He does this very simply with a tattoo on his left ring finger, a large silver ring on his right index finger and a few leather bracelets – and there you go, along with a cigarette and a one-eyed Porche, you have Hank Moody. In “The X-Files” I never much noticed Duchovny’s hands, but in “Californication” they are simply unmissable. As Hank Moody tends to spend a lot of his time wearing no clothes on the show, this is a clever move to make him very recognizable and iconic in all scenes. The accessories on his hands make them very California-ish, and they could easily be the hands of a surfer dude, but since we know he is not that but a writer, we get the feeling that he is a well-traveled man of the world, instead. His hands are simply cool.
