Madieu Williams is a High-Character Guy


The Pioneer-Press’s Bob Sansevere continues his series of introductory interviews with the new Vikings.  Last week it was rookie safety Tyrell Johnson…this week it’s free-agent signee, and also safety, Madieu Williams.

What pertinent information may we glean from Sansevere’s grilling of Williams?  He’s a religious guy who likes doing charity work (he’s inspired by his mother who was a nurse).  He also digs older women, as we learn when Sansevere asks him to name his favorite actresses:

Actress? I’ve got to go for looks. Who draws me in? Halle Berry, definitely. Beyonce. I’m a huge Catherine Zeta-Jones fan. Gwyneth Paltrow.

No Sophia Loren?  Faye Dunaway?

He names the Cuba Gooding, Jr./Robert De Niro vehicle Men of Honor as his favorite film.  Points for originality if not taste.

Madieu also admits that he’s not a good singer:

Simon Cowell would say I’m horrible and “What are you doing in this competition?”

He also believes in ghosts, though he admits he’s never seen one.  All-in-all, I’d say he’s Chilly’s kind of guy…solid, upstanding and a bit on the dull side.  But who cares if he goes out on Sunday and kicks some.
