Why Does Bradley Whitford Keep Wearing Fedoras?

We think we've figured it out

Shelli Weinstein

You may have noticed that Transparent's Bradley Whitford was sporting yet another fedora during the show. We first spotted it at last week's Creative Arts Emmys, where he took home a statuette for his role on the Amazon comedy.

Why another fedora, you ask?

No, he's not starring in a Dick Tracy revival or hosting a documentary on the history of the headwear.

He's appearing in HBO's upcoming adaptation of All The Way, where Bryan Cranston will reprise his Tony-winning performance as Lyndon B. Johnson. Whitford will be playing Vice President Hubert Humphrey. Presumably, Whitford is keeping a lid (literally) on his new 'do for the role.

While Humphrey isn't exactly bald, he does have a rather impressive receding hairline. Take a look and let us know if you think Whitford has - or doesn't have - the hair to pull it off.
