David Boreanaz is DA MAN

Posted on August 13, 2012

But he ain’t no DA MODEL, that’s for sure.


‘Bones’ star David Boreanaz is featured in the latest issue of DA MAN magazine photographed by Mitchell Nguyen McCormack and styled by Jeff K. Kim.


What’s with the cheesy match.com profile pictures? He’s a good-looking man who deserves a better editorial than this bland thing.

    This isn’t even an editorial– it looks like some up-and-coming actor snuck into a nice department store and made his girlfriend take pictures in the dressing room because he didn’t have the money for real headshots.

      Cheap Midwest mom & pop catalog popped into my head but yeah…same difference.

    • http://www.epilonicast.net/theydontknow epilonious

      This.  Also really having to poop the whole time.

    • andreawey

      ha Maria, you sound like you’re speaking from experience lol 

    • drdarke

      This looks like “Seeley Booth For MEN OF THE FBI Calendar – Photography and Styling by Temperance Brennan.”

  • Sobaika

    Wow, these are flat. I kind of like the one with his cheesy grin maybe?

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    No blue steel that’s for sure.  He looks a little terrified.  But he’s cute anyway.

  • alyce1213

    Not very good pictures, but he’s still a cutie.

    this editorial is DA FLATLINED 

  • http://eclectictsunami.blogspot.in/ Cassie

    So awkward. This makes me think that Angel got stuck doing an editorial, somehow, and feels really weird about it. Which makes it kind of unintentionally hilarious.

    • Sobaika

      There were scenes where Angel got approached to model or act, and I kid you not, it was the same deer-in-headlight-I-don’t-speak-your-language-what-do-I-do kind of reaction.

      • Violina23

        Let’s not forget the episode where Angel was asked by a woman to dance at a party, and we were treated to the hilarious “fantasy” of David Boreanaz flailing around for a few seconds.  Then they go to Angel, dead-panned, saying “I don’t dance.”

        The first picture actually LOOKS like a shot from Buffy, him skulking by a tree in an undershirt

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OD35QQZNBPZJXWTCBY7N4EE7VY Sarah

          Angel and Wesley “dancing” is pretty much the best thing ever.

          • Sobaika

            There is also a deleted scene from the ballet episode where Wesley envisions him on stage with Fred. She actually has a dance background and is amazing, he is as goofy as one would imagine. I think they took it out because it didn’t work tonally but find it on YouTube.

          • Sobaika

            Voila: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=po94GM4qvBg

          • Violina23

            The Irony is that Joss Whedon apparently wrote the ballet-themed episode specifically to feature Amy Acker’s dancing, but wound up cutting her only dancing scene. [IIRC from the commentary].  

            On a related note, Amy Acker needs to be on TV more :)

          • theblondette

             In general response to this thread: YAY for nerdy Buffy/Angel talk! I love that on TLo these things collide with fashion so well. Because I love me some fashion, and you bet your ass I have the Angel boxset and know my Buffy stuff inside out. Huzzah!

          • Violina23

            I didn’t get into Buffy/Angel until a few years ago, and I was amazed how much depth there was to the characters & story. In fact, when my daughter was born, I was known to watch Buffy re-runs on LOGO at 3AM during middle-of-the-night feedings. I’m just glad her first word wasn’t “Spike” 😉

          • Sobaika

            I know! Alexis Denisof too. He was the best part of Angel IMO I’m surprised he didn’t get more offers afterwards. Maybe he’s content being daddy?

          • Violina23

            He shows up on How I Met Your Mother occasionally, as a douchey reporter guy who wants to sleep with everybody. It totally messes with me when he talks with his [actual] American accent. I’m like “No, You are Wesley Wyndam-Pryce and you are BRITISH!”

          • http://eclectictsunami.blogspot.in/ Cassie

            I didn’t know he was actually American for the longest time – then I discovered he was from Baltimore and my head pretty much exploded. His British acent is SO GOOD!

          • Sobaika

            But that’s because his wife is on it, right? And he was in the Avengers as the alien CGI dude. I just want to see him do something great that isn’t related to Hannigan or Whedon. He deserves it.

          • Holly Kinnamont

             Haha, apparently he originally almost turned down the HIMYM part because he thought the producers only offered it to him because of his wife. It only took some major “NO, WESLEY WYNDAM-PRYCE. We love you for you, babydoll!” on the producers’ part to get him to accept it. 😛

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OD35QQZNBPZJXWTCBY7N4EE7VY Sarah

            There was a great interview with him recently on The AV Club:


          • http://julia-here.livejournal.com/ Julia

            Amy and Alexis are Beatrix and Benedick in Joss Whedon’s Much Ado about Nothing which you would think would get wide release now that people actually know his name, and all.

          • Maria Rosenfire

             Wait what this exists how do I find it?

          • Holly Kinnamont

             It doesn’t exist for us! Not yet. It will hopefully premiere in festivals soon.

          • http://julia-here.livejournal.com/ Julia

            It’s showing at the Toronto Film Festival, so far.

          • rolacus2

             Amy Acker, Charisma Carpenter, Alexis Denishof… basically most buffy and angel actors. They make me smile when I see them on tv

          • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

            Amy Acker was in Dollhouse too wasn’t she?

          • http://julia-here.livejournal.com/ Julia

            Yeah, as was Alexis. 

            Charisma doesn’t get on with Joss/Mutant Enemy anymore, apparently.

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/Y3OY6COEVBS2STNCUNIRZ3COUE Claudia

            She was on the last epi of Person of Interest; and probably will continue to be an important character based on the ending.  Also, she was bad ass in it.  :)

          • http://profiles.google.com/ameliaheartsu Amelia Logan
        • turtleemily

          That clip makes me instantly happy every time.

        • http://eclectictsunami.blogspot.in/ Cassie

          That’s probably my favorite scene in the entire series. And then he dances again in the end credits!

        • H3ff

          That sure as hell wouldn’t have taken place during the day, though…

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=703335175 Hannah Shmulsky

      I so heartily agree. Poor, poor Angel. His adorableness still shines through, though, I think. 

  • Zaftiguana

    One word; catalog.

  • PeggyOC

    Never done much for me, (and yes, I’ve watched Buffy, Angel and Bones) and these shots aren’t doing much to sell me otherwise.  Looks like a catalog shoot.  All he needs is a shot of him standing with one hand extending, showing the lining of his sports coat.

    • Violina23

      Yeah, he never did much for me either, and these photos don’t help. The sweater one is just the WORST. I feel awkward just looking at these.

      He was by far the LEAST interesting thing about the series “Angel”, despite it being named after his character.  Although I never tire of him beating the shit out of the future Peter Campbell 😉

  • j_anson

    Dear lord. What did they DO to his face in the second one?

  • http://remedialstitcher.blogspot.com/ Sara Leigh Merrey

    Yeah. This basically sucks. I love David Boreanaz, and this just makes him look stupid.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    DA PHOTOGRAPHER didn’t do a very good job. Catalogue shots if I’m being generous. Then again, Boreanaz has always stuck me as a total creeper, so he deserves this amateur hour editorial.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1235612578 Maggie Smith

      I’m with you.  Sure, Boreanaz isn’t giving the greatest face, but one of those shots is just plain out of focus.  There were some strange choices made in this editorial.

  • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

    May not be the best guydatorial out there, but David Boreanaz is a old favorite of mine, so I’m just happy he got some attention!

  • jmorino08

    The first one where he’s smiling is really good, the rest are sad and awkward. 

  • tereliz

    Yikes. The one with the toggle cardigan looks like he’s about to tell those pesky neighborhood kids off for playing on his lawn. Definitely not the best use of such fabulous raw genetic material. It’s too bad. But then again I hear he’s a real cocksucker IRL, and not the good kind. Maybe he pissed off the photographer. NEVER piss off the photographer. :)

  • http://twitter.com/hmbscully WendyD

    I’ll always have a soft spot for David Boreanaz from the Buffy/Angel days and I actually really enjoyed his Seely Booth on ‘Bones’ but I had to drop that show after it jumped the shark with their “oh btw the main characters got together as a couple, but we didn’t actually show it to you, she’s just pregnant now” moment 2 seasons ago.

    • http://twitter.com/Goldielox73 Goldie

      I think that was in part due to them being sensitive about Emily’s RL pregnancy.  There were a lot of cutesy moments between them last season to (kind of) make up for it.

    • Toto Maya

       Hahahahaha, they did that? I stopped watching like 3 or 4 seasons ago. That’s dumb as hell. Oh well, the first few seasons were pretty great at least.

  • AuntieAnonny

    Mitchell Nguyen McCormack needs to be fired, if he hasn’t been already.

  • mjude

    TLO says What’s with the cheesy match.com profile pictures?  LMFAO

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

    #3 makes my heart pitty-pat.  Sooooo cute when he smiles & the corners of his eyes crinkle.   
    (Of course, brooding Angel was no slouch in the heart-pounding department.)

  • turtleemily

    I’m sure David Boreanaz is in there somewhere under all that airbrushing. He has such a charismatic presence, so I really can’t believe that these were the best shots. The first and third-to-last aren’t even focused!

    • alyce1213

      Thanks. I thought so, or that I had to go up a diopter.

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    Its like his wife decided to revamp his wardrobe and forced him into clothes he wouldn’t ever pick out or wear on his own.

  • http://blue-again.myopenid.com/ blue

    He looks uncomfortable.

  • frannyprof

    His hairline creeps me out.

  • Frank_821

    Didn’t he do some catalog modeling back in his unknown days. These are banal pics overall. He’s no serious editorial skills but he does have a goofball, humorous quality. Why didn’t they play that up?

  • JasmineAM

    Boring editorial, but the Vivienne Westwood suit is doing him all kinds of good. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=703335175 Hannah Shmulsky

    I love the first smiling one. He’s just so cuuuute! But they could’ve done SO much better for him. God, who is this idiot photographer, and what kind of idiots would publish these lousy shots?? 

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SETXKRMBFXHDOXOZ4FZ5LTIT4Q Elizabeth

    Nice how they make sure to put his wedding ring front and center in the last pic. Cheat? This guy? NEVER !

  • Trisha26

    As I asked last week – why is every actress/actor considered to be a model? Let them walk and pose while reading words others have written for them, don’t put them in front of a still camera in clothes.

  • http://CallMeJane.com/ CallMeJane

    I know it’s weak, still, I never got anything this nice on match.com.  I think he’s a doll…. just not in these photos. 

  • mellorcr

    Either he’s had some work done, or they have photoshopped some of these pics so much that parts of his face look like plastic!  I don’t think the second photo is even rcognizable as him.

  • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

    I’m fine with it all. Aging with grace!

  • DinahR

    He’s cute, but looks a little lost and out of his realm in all of these shots.  It’s kind of endearing, actually.  

  • http://twitter.com/obscureobjects David Calder

    Oh good. I was looking for the latest Sears catalogue.

    • http://twitter.com/londonpenguin Teresa M.

      Wait, I thought this was the Penney’s catalogue.

  • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

     Oh. Mah. Gaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! That was full of awesome. Also? I can’t see now because I’m doing the cry-laff.

    Poor Angel. He looks like a douchebag in this editorial.

  • MilaXX

    Each photo looks like the space filler in picture frames you buy from Walmart. I like the toggle sweater.

  • crash1212

    He’s never done a thing for me and this editorial doesn’t change that…however, I was quite surprised to hear that there’s actually a publication called “Da Man”. Who knew?

  • pookiesmom

    These look like mediocre actor headshots. And a lot of them are blurry. What a strange editorial.

  • Lilithcat

    If he’s not wearing a cheap toupée, he should sue his barber.  If he is, he should get a decent one.

  • http://twitter.com/LianaBrooks Liana Brooks

    I’d still take him home for dinner. 

  • Rand Ortega

    Ugh. Ew. Yikes. Really? Pew. No. Wow. Huh. Meh.
    In that order.

  • bellafigura1

    In the first pic, he looks like the doer in the park skulking behind a tree watching Stabler and Benson comb the crime scene — and also, like he’s a little chilly.

  • janetjb

    Are we sure these were really done by professionals?

  • elzatelzabelz

    It might be cheesy, but Angel is always Da Man.

  • margaret meyers

    Does he have carpeting on his head?

  • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gabriella M

    Ohmigod, they are online dating profile pictures! Spot on, TLo. 

  • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

    he looks pretty skeptical in each shot.  like, “why did i agree to do this?”

  • BuffaloBarbara

    Connor did better.

  • http://onionjam.tumblr.com SkipperJane

    Bless you.

  • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

    It’s funny how many actors are terrible models. Love that toggle sweater, though.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HU6TW5A67UOLM5IPLN6INMAVZ4 Martin C

    I feel sorry for him.

  • http://twitter.com/SparklyCasanova UglyCasanova

    Did he get some hair transplanted?  Looks a little, askew.  

    Also Boreanaz is so much hotter when he was younger, like Season 1 of Buffy.  Seriously, go look it up.

  • formerlyAnon

    He’s been on three t.v. shows I enjoy, two of which I like a LOT. I feel as if I should write him a thank-you note.

  • RJay

    That’s a weird ass hairline.

  • RzYoung

    It looks like the photographer had the major shakes while he took every single shot

  • jjfg

    Wow, those are some bad photos.  

    I haven’t seen his other shows, but I’ve intermittently caught episodes of Bones and I LOVE that he often has classic-era hockey photos/sports memorabilia in the shots.  (Helps that that memorabilia is from Philly, too.)  Good guy deserves a better photo shoot!

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    I love “David from Philly” but I hate the photos. Mitchell Nguyen McCormack has the photo credit so I guess he’s the one to blame. 

  • afabulous50

    The only picture I really like is the 3rd one down – that beautiful smile.  I’m a long-time Bones fan and he rocks my world…

  • BeeBeauNYC

    I watched Buffy, and he never really brought any personality to those shows.  So….this could be part him and his kinda flat personality.

  • http://korilian.livejournal.com/ korilian

    Hahaha. That’s really bad. I used to have a big ass Buffy/Angel poster on my wall where he looked properly broody and hot. Now I’m wondering how many shots it took them to get him looking so photogenic.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/FEP56YB4DUIXBWSLIMSSSGQHWY jimmack

    Great looking guy. Bland clothes. Uninspired photography. Looks like the sunday insert promoting a sale at kohls. On a positive note: at least they did not photoshop the personality off his face. FYI: David is rumored to be a major jerk.

  • librarygrrl64

    He’s a goofball, so having him try to “brood” really doesn’t work.

  • Victoria Sharoyan

    Dying with laughter inside just picturing Angel slaying vampires alongside Buffy in the second to last outfit.

  • adnama79

    This is like his acting in the first 2 seasons of Buffy.

  • Puckndc

    He’s cute, but needs to stop using Clairol # 4 Mink Brown….his beard growth really gives it away…get a pro colorist!
