Cover Boys: Drake, Franco, and Slattery

Posted on March 14, 2012

Darlings, once again, here’s your pretty for the day: a lovely little cross-section of male candy in killer suits.

Drake, Dave Franco, and John Slattery cover the April 2012 issue of GQ magazine photographed by Sebastian Kim.


Looks like it’s time for another round of F-M-K. Who wants to start us off?

    • Esme Cuckoo

      F = Franco
      M = Drake
      K = Slattery

      • Rashida Jones

        My thinking exactly…

      • Jen Freeman


    • Sarah Thomas

      Fuck – Slattery
      Marry – Slattery
      Introduce to my niece – Drake
      Google so I can figure out who the hell he is – Franco

      • kentiesgirl

         I was assuming a different Franco, and was thoroughly confused.

        • filmcricket

           It’s his brother, I think.

          • Alexandria

            it is indeed his younger brother

      • joything

        Me too.  Slattery.  All I have to see is that name.

        • littlemac8

          Sigh, I had no idea I had soooo much competition for Mr. S.

          • littlemac8

            If I saw him walking out of that picture, to me, I would faint dead away!

        • Toto Maya

          I always think of Tony Slattery, a British comedien. He was so damn hilarious until he had a nervous brakedown and had to be put in an institution for like 8 years.

      • Adriana_Paula


    • norseofcourse

      F = Slattery
      The other two are so young that all I could do is help with their algebra homework.

      • serenitynow02

        I wish there was a Love choice for this.

        • CatherineRhodes

           I think marry is the love choice.

    • crash1212

      Fuck – Slattery
      Marry – Slattery
      Kill – anybody who tries to get between me and Slattery.

      Don’t care a lick about the other two. I broke the rules. Deal. :)

      • Lilak

        Uh, yup … pretty much!  
        As long as you and I (+ MzzPants, below, and many many others) operate in parallel universes … or there’ll be a whole lotta Killing going on, eh? 

    • MzzPants

      Slattery – F,M, Divorce, F.  Wash, rinse, repeat.

      All other – Kill

      • TieDye64

        Bahahahaha! MzzPants, you rule.

    • S. B. Hadley Wilson

      F – Franco
      M – Slattery
      K – Drake, no clue who he is

      • Amelia Logan

        Drake = First name “Greatest”, Last name “Ever” aka wheelchair ridden Jimmy from Degrassi.

        • BazoDee

          I still can’t believe Jimmy made it big! 

        • rawrgrowlrawr

          Oh my god, that’s why I recognized him! Degrassi was so scandalous to eleven year old me. 

        • S. B. Hadley Wilson

          Wow I’m old. The only Degrassi series I ever watched was Degrassi Junior High.

    • suzinrva

      Silver fox brings it!
      F – Slattery
      M – Slattery
      K – Those boys will do themselves in eventually.

      • kentiesgirl

         Not the best pic of him I’ve ever seen, but that man sizzles. Meow Sir.

    • MissMariRose

      F: Drake,
      M: Slattery
      K: Franco

      • Connie Brandan Verzak

        Ditto. Drake might be good for a tumble but I’d get sick of him. Franco is a giant MEH. Slattery would be the gift that kept on giving.

    • Jasmine Moten

      No idea who Franco is, but I’ve had a crush on Drake since before he was Wheelchair Jimmy. So F, M, Drake til’ love do us part.
      Edited to add: Boy, does he fill out that suit nicely!

    • Adrian

      No belts? What’s up with that? Is that a thing?

      • Nancy Abrams

        I thought the rule is that you must wear a belt if the pants have loops. Looks unfinished otherwise.

        Also, aren’t all these hemmed way too short according to the Rules of TLo?

        • CozyCat

          A belt would get in the way of the F for Slattery.  The others could be wearing suspenders for all I care…

    • joe_tey83

      Just K all of them and replace with Joe Manganiello on three covers. That will be one hell of a F M K.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      Slattery is my only option here for F/M, the other two are far to young to consider…on an aside, i don’t think Roger would ever be caught without a belt….

    • tinyredlocks

      F:Drake. At least he could sing to me whilst doing so.
      M & F:Slattery, of course.
      K:Franco. Who the fuck is Franco?

      • Anathema_Device

         James Franco’s little bro.

    • AMAdams

      F – Slattery
      M – Drake
      K – Franco

    • EdwinG

      Fuck Drake, then let him fuck me.
      Marry Drake.
      Kill Keri Hilson.

      • howdoilook

        LOL @ Keri Hilson. 

      • SpillinTea

        Hahahahahahahaha. Kill Keri Hilson indeed!

    • Belle Burnett

      F – Drake
      M – Slattery
      K – Franco (who the who?)

    • Shelf Afterlife

      Dave Franco, younger and less famous brother of James.  Was in the final season of “Scrubs” and also in “Superbad” and is in the upcoming “21 Jump Street.”  And I would not F nor M any of them, but I will K them all and take their suits for my husband.

    • Amelia Logan

      When I am 40 I am sure that I will think John Slattery is a babe, I will admit he is attractive for a man of a certain age…

      • rawrgrowlrawr

        I’m 22 and I’d do him.

        But this is coming from a girl whose other celebrity crushes include Anderson Cooper and Geoffrey Zakarian.

        • Barbara Guttman

          Some wines improve with age.  Ain’t nothing wrong with any of those vintages. 

    • Pants_are_a_must

      I think Slattery takes this round. Drake is fug and why did we need ANOTHER Franco?

    • charlotte

      You FMK those guys while I run off with Jon Hamm.

    • Judy_J

      Slattery — F and M. Don’t want to K any of them.

    • stilly001

      Can I fuck them and then kill them? Like praying mantis style?

    • gdougs

      Can I say none of the above?

    • filmcricket

      I wouldn’t K any of these guys – there are so many people on my list who actually deserve it. I might consider Mrs. Slattery, who was married to Clooney before she married Roger here. Lucky bitch.

      Love the suits, even if the hems on Franco and Slattery seem a skosh high. TLo, did you guys see GQ’s “30 Under 30″? What did you think of their choices? Lots of “looks good in a tux” white guys, it seemed to me.

    • turtleemily

      I don’t know who any of these people are, but I can’t believe that’s the best pic of Franco for a cover. His body language is awkwardly closed, his eyes are shadowed, and he has no neck.

    • Tess Danesi

      Fuck – Slattery, apparently my taste for younger men is waning and Slattery has such a commanding presence, yum
      Marry – Um, never again, been there, still there, love him but not marriage
      Kill – Sorry Drake and Franco, you’re just not doing it for me.

      • RedRaven617

        thanks Tess.. I had no idea which was what.

    • girliecue

      F=Slattery. Duh.
      M=Slattery. Because he’s exactly the type who could make me crazy enough to do it.
      K=Slattery.  Because he’s exactly the type who could make me crazy enough to do it.

    • ccm800

      I like me some little Franco – got no love for the other two whatsoever

    • Gener1c

      M, K, F … I can’t help it.

    • BazoDee

      F – Franko & Drake
      M – Slattery – although not based on this pic. His hair line looks rather odd here and I don’t like the over all look -too young for his age. (see I’m helping him with his wardrobe -it is like we are married already!) 

      • mellbell

         Would you believe John Slattery is in his 40s? I couldn’t believe it at first.

      • Sara Munoz

        K- Slattery’s suit. :)

    • FashionShowAtLunch

      Do I have to choose?

    • cmb92191

      I’m sorry but Ambrose (aka Drake) just looks so odd without his Degrassi wheelchair!  (But the suit looks great).   Slattery doesn’t look bad. 

      K- Drake- just because he just isn’t Degrassi anymore- and Drake- come on– we know what your REAL name is!
      M- Slatterly- I have a thing for older guys
      F- Don’t know this Franco- but I’d give it a whirl.

      • BeBeWhy

         Ha! Yet another indignity for Aubrey Graham.

    • Geoff Dankert

      Was someone asking who Dave Franco is?

      This is Dave Franco.

      Well, half of it is Dave Franco.

      Oh, it’s NSFW, in case any of you still read this at work. :)

    • BeBeWhy

      Franco, Slattery, and off with Drake’s head. I just want lay in that beautiful white mane of John Slattery’s.

    • lalahartma

      The silver fox!

    • RedRaven617

      James Slatterly – F & M

    • MilaXX

      F = Drake
      M = Slattery
      K = Franco 

    • Sara Munoz

      Why are they dressed like that? John Slattery needs to be wearing Drake’s suit. He is a Silver Fox, but looks silly here. 
      As for the boys:Dave Franco does nothing for me. At all. 
      Drake is cute. He was great on Degrassi, but I also remember the ORIGINAL Degrrassi (RIP Wheels!!), so he is just much too young for me.

    • Kari Den Otter

      F – Franco
      M – Slattery
      K – Drake

    • skadi1

      Y’all are nuts. That’s easily the worst pictures I’ve ever seen of John Slattery. I like grown men too, but he looks like he’s melting. I’ll take Drake, thank you. He has lovely pecs and a killa smile (even if his pants are a bit too short and his suit seems oddly photoshopped). That Franco is still an infant. Bring him back when he’s put on a few crow’s feet.

    • allj

      F = Slattery
      M = Drake
      K = Franco

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      I *love* F-M-K!  The safe for work version I learned was “Death is Not An Option.”

    • sleepycat

      F=Franco, an on going affair
      M=Drake, seems like a nice guy after slamming that girl that got his name tattooed on her forehead
      K=Slattery, he is no silver fox like AC

    • sockandaphone

      f- all three

    • Isana Leshchinskaya

      f slattery, m franco, k drake

    • Paola Thomas

      You can keep them all. Also Jon Hamm and George Clooney. Am I weird?

      • dress_up_doll

        No, you’re not weird at all. I have a major thing for both Jon and George. However, I wouldn’t mind spending a little “f” time with Slattery.

    • Sammi M

      F=Slattery (yeah, he could be my dad… but I’d rather he’d be my daddy ;D)
      M = Drake
      K = Franco 

    • hughman

      Drake, FUCK that monochromatic look! Franco, MARY, that tie is fab! Slattery, that look is KILLING me! (but where’s the belt??)

    • Verascity

      Wow, I didn’t even recognize Dave Franco. Slattery is looking rough…

    • DCSheehan

      K – Drake so I can steal that fantastic suit.
      M – Franco then
      F – Slattery behind his back.

    • fiestyfashionfem

      Lord – I see those first two boys and all I can think of is “douchebag” – I’m so jaded.  Douchebag douchebag.  So it’s Slattery for the F!  But the suits are gorge!  Wish that the men in my life – i.e. all those in a two mile periphery –  would wear clothes like this all the time.  My own little world of beautiful suits – the dude pumping gas, the boy at the McDonald’s drive through, my husband while cleaning the pool, the guy bagging my groceries at Publix, my dentist, etc etc.  Imagine – ahhhh.

    • Alli

      Slattery looks like he’s trying waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too hard. Which is weird, because I’ve seen him do the fashion-guy GQ thing before in editorials and I always thought he pulled it off. I think it’s the “oh, just casually walking here” pose that does it.

      Haven’t they been trying to make Drake happen for 3 years now? I feel old.

      I’m not playing fmk because none of them are my type, so I guess I’ll just keep at it who the fuck is Dave Franco?

    • allisankelly

      F = Drake
      M = Slattery
      K = Franco (yes, I too have NO CLUE who this BOY is!)

    • allisankelly

      F = Drake
      M = Slattery
      K = Franco (yes, I too have NO CLUE who this BOY is!)

    • Jaeda Laurez

      F-John Slattery. Wouldn’t take him home to mama, but we could work it out in the limo. #POW
      M- Drake. He looks really good here (brought his Comeback Season swag back for this one), but usually he’s in tall tees and a scruffy neck beard (I blame Lil Wayne). He’s notoriously sensitive and a bit of a Captain Save-A-Ho. We could pick out china patterns and puppies and stuff, and I think he’d be a good daddy, so…marry.
      K- Franco. If for no other reason, than I have absolutely no idea who he is.  

    • AC

      F = Franco
      M = Slattery
      K = Drake

    • bluefish

      F and M = Roger Slattery!

    • GTrain

      F – Franco (even though I thought it was gonna be the other one…)
      M – Slattery
      K – Drake

    • miwome

      F – Franco
      M – Slattery
      K – Drake

      I’d prefer to marry nobody, but there is no way in hell I’m giving Slattery the K over Drake.

    • Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      Drake, please.  Taht is one smart and talented man.  And he looks like, THAT.  Serve him up on a silver platter, please.

    • mozzer0906

      These suits fit like a dream on these young men.  Thankfully it is a different Franco,  I’d need a full silkwood if I went anywhere near James Franco.  Onto the game:  F = Drake; M=Slattery; K=Franco.   Sorry other Franco, you seem too young to lite my fire.

    • Jessica Rowe

      F, M = Slattery.  The others, I don’t know who they are so, meh.

    • Colleen

      F=Drake while pretending he’s someone else
      M=Slattery he’s snarky enough for me :)
      K= Franco, don’t think I could stand the family.

    • Danielle West

      F=Slattery  the end

    • ThaliaMenninger

      F & M Slattery, K the other two.

    • jcolli69

      F- Drake
      M-Franco (because I’d get to continually F him)
      K-Slattery (dude is TOO old for my taste)

    • enonymous

      All I can think of is F Slattery, but he ask you to pee on him.

    • Kacper Nedza

      I’ve always seen Drake looking all broody and intense, so the smile comes as a bit of a surprise but, oh my sweet baby Jesus, that SMILE…

      F – Slattery
      M – Drake
      K – who the hell IS this guy???

    • CatherineRhodes

      Not feeling any of the choices here… can I use all three wishes for F F F with Ryan Gosling?

    • Toto Maya

      I’m the opposite of a lot of people here, Slattery is too old for me. Drake is yummy, however. No idea who that Franco guy is.

    • Paige Boerman

      F = Slattery
      Don’t care about the other two.
