Total boyfriend material, amirite? Or maybe just “dead body on a beach” material? If you’re not watching Revenge, that last sentence won’t make much sense and probably makes us sound like monsters, doesn’t it? Oh, well. Wouldn’t be the first time.

Revenge, please hurry back to our TV soon.

    He reminds me of the kid from Sixth Sense…amiright?

    • Anonymous

       not one bit to me…sorry.

    • Sara L.

      I can see it, a little. Something about the squintiness of his eyes and the shape of his face…

      Not exactly a dead ringer, but a resemblance, for sure.

      Yeah, I can see it.

      hes what i wish the kid from the sixth sense grew up to look like. 

  • Joseph Davidson

    I want him…and outfits 2 and 3.

  • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    I want that dog. That is all.

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, everyone can fight over the man meat. I just want to snuggle with the puppy. 

    • Anonymous

      LOL. I had to go back and check to see where the puppy was.

      • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

        It was the first thing I saw. I’m a sucker for a dog now. I actually kept scrolling down hoping for more pictures…of a dog. 

  • Anonymous

    I would like to make babies with him please and thank you. And I’d like that dog as a pet too. If it’s not too much trouble. Cheers.

    Cute guy.
    Cute doggie.
    Potato chips.
    What’s not to love?

      Seriously. I think that’s the recipe to a happy life.

      It’s actually a french fry food cart! It’s delicious.

    These pictures are ridiculously adorable, and my husband might actually wear some of the clothes.

    • Anonymous

      I was thinking the same thing; these are clothes that a regular joe like my boyfriend would actually agree to wear without giving me the stinkeye.

    HE WAS IN MY TOWN???!?!?!?!?  Why didn’t I seen him!!??!!??  Whine whine whine.  Cute clothes.  And I run that trail.  DAMNIT.

    • Keegan Lucas

      My first thought too, as soon as I saw Wildwood Trail and Potato Champion: why did I miss him in my town?! Gah!

    • rynerman

       I said the same thing when I saw the Bagdad.  Damn it I missed him!

    Boyfriend material for my SON if my SON was gay. Just waaaaaay too young.

    If he were my boyfriend, I’d buy him socks.

    Hate the short pants, but love the jackets.  And doggie! *pets*

    • Sara__B

      I think it’s the rolled up hems on these that bug me. I usually don’t mind skinny pants on the short side.

  • Anonymous

    He’s selling him and not the clothes. Nice tie.

  • Bridget Smith

    He looks adorable and on anyone else I’d be swooning, but his character on Make It Or Break It was so douchey that I can’t like his face anymore. I sort of hate that that show influenced my opinon on ANYTHING, but there we go. Sorry, Josh Bowman. :(

    • Bridget Smith

      Incidentally: one thing I like about GQ is that if they’re not showcasing suits, they tend to dress up actors in good quality but not absurdly expensive clothes. It’s a very subtle way to very effectively advertise. He’s wearing J. Crew, Gap, Dockers, Converse, and even American Apparel mixed in with the $300 parkas (and that one Bottega Veneta). Women’s magazines almost never do this unless they’re specifically showcasing affordable clothes.

  • korilian

    That is a nice looking comic book store! 

    • Sarah Oleksyk

      It’s Bridge City Comics on Mississippi Ave, in case you’re ever in Portland.

      • korilian

        Nope. And the odds that I’ll ever visit are slim to none to be honest, since I’m not even in the states :).

    So are socks just “over” now?  Why is it always the practical fashion that gets tossed?

  • Emily Hogg

    “boyfriend material” is the perfect way to describe him/this editorial! i kept thinking as i was scrolling through, “i need to date someone who dresses like this!” 

    …looking like him wouldn’t hurt either, of course 😉

  • Fifi LaRoux

    Mmmm. Thanks for the Friday treat!

    And yes, Revenge needs to get back on the air. Like yesterday.

  • Stefanos Mantyla

    Having no idea what “Revenge” is, I thought this was Jim Carrey in the thumbnail.

  • Nancer

    Cute guy, nice clothing, but am I the only one bothered by all of the rolled up pant cuffs?

    • Leigh Anne Statton

      NO!  You mos def are not.

  • Anonymous

    Don’t know who he is, but he’s adorable.

    And I feel like a sick pedophile for lusting over him.

  • Joshua Woofter

    Revenge is back this Wednesday and the following week we find out what really went down on the beach. IF that is really Daniel dead and IF Jack pulled the trigger…I’m thinking it isn’t Daniel, it’s either psycho gay or the guy that attacked Jack.

  • Anonymous

    ooo! He is a cutie! Like Darren Criss, but corrected. I want evey damn thing in this spread. Boy, clothes, dog…all of it. 

  • Anonymous

    Haven’t had time to watch Revenge last couple of episodes.
    So it’s really him dead on the beach ? So sweet…

  • meghann chell

    How was there cute man meat running around in my city and I wasn’t informed?

  • Jasmine Moten

    He is insanely adorable.

  • Anonymous

    He doesn’t do a thing for me on Revenge, but he looks pretty darn cute here.  I like the rolled up pants, but I have a 34″ inseam and never have enough pant leg for it to work. 

  • Patrick Cleary

    In photos, totally yummy. In “Revenge”? The boy has absolutely no upper lip. It’s freaky, because his lower lip is all full and pouty, and his upper lip? Nonexistent. Kissing him must be like eating the worlds’ smallest Vienna sausage.

    American Bulldog or white Boxer?

    • Mary Warren

      kinda late, but def a white Boxer

  • Anonymous

    He looks like he has True Blood zombie eyes in the last couple of pictures.

  • Jenna Kuhmann

    Love the dog, love him.  Seriously, could they have found a cuter dog to match him?  Love love love.

  • Terence Ng

    I flipped through this editorial, and it all looks cute, but when you stare up close at that frozen mouth open grin, it’s a bit unnerving. Like, serious Darren Criss camera work there… Not a good thing.

  • Anonymous

    These pics should have been taken at the Fire Island Botel. 

  • Ally Monge

    I will take him, the dog, and maybe all of those pants. I think they are pretty cute for a female too. But seriously Revenge has got to come back. Withdrawal is presenting already.

  • Jamie

    love the last pic – so cute!

  • Anonymous

    Can I have the dog? The jackets are nice.

  • oohsparkley!

    Cute!  I second that “hurry back Revenge”.

  • Anonymous

    That face is built for a high end suit, IMO. He is a teensy bit too mature-looking for ‘cute boy’ to be his best thing. Though he is one.

    ETA: and I’m not a fan of those tight pants rolled up above the ankle bone on men built as athletically?, healthily? as he is. I think they’re the province of the small-boned, spindly, and/or undernourished guys who look as if daylight and fresh air are not high priorities for them.

    • Anonymous

      Yes, I agree those pants do work best on the consumptive-looking, tortured artist types. As an actor, he may be an artist but he most definitely doesn’t look tortured.

  • Anonymous

    Oy, he really is really cute. This is not helping me with my current romantic disappointments.

  • Anonymous

    Anyone know if that’s an American bulldog? Puppy’s adorable. Josh looks good, too, even though the catching-flies-and-smiling gape that Katherine Heigl also does bugs me.

    • Mary Warren

      The dog is a Boxer, my absolute favorite type of dog :)

  • Anonymous

    Aw, he is very cute. And I’m such an old fart that I say that in a totally maternal way. Goddamnit.

  • R. L.

    I saw this dog’s doppelganger today at the Humane Society where I volunteer.  With another boxer.  Anyhow, these are cute pics of the boy too.

  • MilaXX

    He looks cute here, but thanks to photo shop I thought he was Darren Criss in a few of these pics.

    Love the striped boat shoes.

    Dang.  If only the guys in Portland, Oregon were as cute as Josh. Most are just dirty hipsters.   I totally would have stalked him if I had known they were shooting a GQ spread around town.  

  • VFL Miss Helenes

    Kinda like a lower level Ryan Reynolds frat boy guy.  Meh.

    The dog stole his socks.

    I’ve only seen Josh in Revenge so I like how he seems looser and hipper here than his Daniel Grayson alter ego. I like how accessible the fashions are, too. 

    Also, I recently saw a little video interview clip with him and EVC and I have to say his real-life British ups the cuteness factor considerably. Boyfriend material indeed.

    Totally cut guy but cannot carry off the outdoorsy look. He looks like a gay guy trying desparately to look rugged. He looks best in the book store waiting for a “pick up date”

    Hey, these pics are totally taken in my hometown!  (Wasn’t sure until I got to the last pic, which is shot just down the street from where I was last night.)  Dig the pants in every single look, these are what I’ve been wearing for awhile now–so glad to know I’m not off point, haha!

    He’s wearing WAY too much clothing!

    I keep thinking: “Smelly feet. Smelly feet.”

    I can understand the appeal but He. Does. Nothing. For. Me.  Too generic.

    innocuous. but i’ll take the dog over him. 

  • Anonymous

    He looks so cute and is so cute. What a handsome young man. And great photos.

    BTW: Is Revenge ever returning to us? I mean WHERE are the new episodes?! I am salivating with anticipation! Damn Primetime break – I feel like it’s this ice cream ABC is dangling in front of my obsessed, soap opera deprived face and saying not yet, you’re still on Weight Watchers – eat this plum instead.

    I hate all those pants, except the jeans in the last photo.

  • Beth G

    So… wait… we’re rolling our jeans again??  Are we pinning and rolling or just folding and rolling?

    Is it sad that my eyes went to the dog first in the top picture?  Because that is one damn cute dog.  I mean, the guy’s ok… I guess…

    Wow he is unbelievably cute here.
