Matthew Fox is DA MAN

Posted on October 10, 2012

If you’d asked us three years ago, we would have said that Matthew Fox, Josh Holloway, and Evangeline Lilly had a shot a movie stardom ahead of them, and yet it seems like none of them have really made much of a splash. Evangeline’s got The Hobbit pictures coming up, which should definitely put her on the map for a while, but Josh was in that Mission Impossible movie for less than ten minutes and Matthew seems to have taken his sweet time putting work out. Looks like he’s gearing up to do the poledance now, though.

Matthew Fox is featured in the October/November 2012 issue of DA MAN magazine photographed by Mitchell Nguyen McCormack and styled by Lisette Mora & Adam DeNino.

On his experience on Lost: “It was a great experience and a really wonderful chapter in our lives. It was also really wonderful for our two young children, who aren’t so young anymore. We really enjoyed the six years that we spent there. Working on the show was fantastic. I really enjoyed the story and the character that I played on the show. I thought that I was given a really good opportunity to work on a role that was very complex, which gave me the chance to do a lot of different things. It was a fantastic experience all around.”

On preparing for his upcoming film Alex Cross: “I lost 35 pounds, which was difficult, but I had really expert help. I met a man in London who had done this for several people — helping them radically change their look for a specific role. We got together and he asked me what I imagined the character looking like. Afterward, he came back with a strategically laid out workout plan that involved us training together on top of a structured nutritional plan. I was very disciplined, I never cheated and I worked really hard on it. Some of the first images that were leaked from the movie made me very happy because I felt like I had re-created the image I had in my mind of what the character would look like.”

And while he’s not the greatest model in the world, he does take a nice picture and wears clothes well. It’s not the most original guyditorial we’ve ever seen, but at least he’s not brooding in the desert or sitting alone at a retro diner counter.

    oh he’s so yummy.  i hope all the wife-beating chatter were just rumours. 

    • Sutton Strother

      Pretty sure they are true. Dominic Monaghan even publicly said Matthew Fox beats women, and I can’t imagine you’d say something like that about a fellow actor and former co-star based purely on speculation.

      • Shannon Stewart

        And when asked about concerns over slander, Monaghen replied with “It’s not slander when it’s true, so no, I’m not worried about a lawsuit.”

      • Sobaika

        Well. There goes my lady-boner.

    • Amye

      I, for one, do NOT believe them.  His former co-star actually went to jail (Scott Bairstow) for the same thing, and I would hope that would teach anyone that was on PO5 a lesson.  And honestly, Dom Monaghan seems like douche IRL.

      • Verascity

        Dom is, reportedly, a douche, but it’s still hard to believe he’d make up something like that and continue to insist upon it so publicly. If jail were an effective deterrent, no one would commit crimes.

    • Jennifer Coleman

      I suppose his nutritional plan included copious alcohol because while shooting Alex Cross here in Cleveland, he punched a female limo driver for not giving him a ride from a strip club back to his hotel. Note that she was not his limo driver but parked waiting on the party that had hired her – a very drunk Fox just jumped in her vehicle and when she explained she was not taking him anywhere, he started wailing on her. He was arrested for this. If broke my Lost-loving heart to see that he is such a mess.

  • EditKitten

    He’s too Romney in that next-to-last one. 😉

    But otherwise … it’s not bad. Not great, but I hope his movie does well, for his sake.

    • Alyssa T. Robot

       totally see that now that you say it.

    • EditKitten

      (Also, now that others have reminded me of the abuse rumors … no, he doesn’t have to do well. I take it back!)

      • RebeccaKW

         I kind of want the movie to do well, only b/c I love Alex Cross and would love to see some more books translated to the screen.  As much as I love Morgan Freeman, he didn’t really fit the character for me.  Although, I’m not sure I think of Tyler Perry when I think Alex Cross, either.

        • WendyD

          I didn’t even know Fox was in the new Alex Cross movie until this post. I love the character of Alex Cross and I LOATHE Tyler Perry. I don’t know if Matthew is going to be enough to get me to see it.

    • Meri

      That is exactly what I was thinking! Uncanny.

    • GorgeousThings

      He definitely could be up on stage ringing doorbells in “The Book of Mormon” in that picture.

      • PinkLemon

         It’s the side part. A Missionary requirement. And he’s sporting it SO WELL.

  • Cari

    I think the persistent rumor that he abuses women hasn’t helped Matthew Fox’s career, either.

    • Molly

      Right? Totally put me off him.  Now every time I see pictures I just think he looks like an arsehole.

    • kschwarting

      Ditto the drunk driving arrest.

      • turtleemily

        I think at least half the Lost cast had some sort of drunk driving charge by the end of the show. Does Hawaii not have cabs?

  • dress_up_doll

    Jack?!? Jack! Where are you?

    • Gabriella M


      • ChiliP

         If we don’t live together, we’re going to die alone!

        Sorry Matthew Fox, you will always be Jack Shephard to me. The most controlling, daddy-issued, tatooed spinal surgeon I’ve ever known.

        • Amye

          To me, he’ll always be Charlie Sallinger

    • Amelia Logan

      KATE!!!! KATE!!!!!

  • dschubba

    Attractive, but insufferable.

  • Amelia Ross

    that shot with the white shirt and silvery tie is totally his Jack-broodily-staring-at-something-across-the-Island expression and I realize how much his face is imprinted onto my brain from six years of that fucking show.  

  • MK03

    Ehh, he’s not really built for the J. Pierrepont Finch looks. 

    • librarygrrl64

      Nice reference. :-)

  • Alyssa T. Robot

    meh. i suppose i like the smiley shots a little better but i don’t feel much of anything about these shots.

  • Imasewsure

    I generally don’t like tattoos but I think these make some of the shots more interesting (not the one with his arms up though). He’s got a great body for modeling clothes (not my type so I’m not really imagining him without the clothes I guess).
    Here’s hoping Alex Cross will be the movie of the century too – I want Tyler Perry to be so busy being an action hero that he can’t write any more sappy comedies! (And he seems like a nice guy so why not).

  • AnnaleighBelle

    The first, third, and last make me think of Brian Williams for some reason…

    • RebeccaKW

       I think he has Brian Williams’ hair and similar facial features.  Not enough to look like him, but enough to remind you of him.  I see it, too.

      • AnnaleighBelle

        The body language, too, I think, especially in the first.

  • CFNA1981

    the guy from lost… i get the ejaculation… but i still cant find the actor… anyone???

  • Clueless_Jock

    He looks like Aaron Eckhart in these pics.

    • Heather

      I keep thinking Guy Pearce crossed with Crispin Glover.

      • Shawn EH

        Let’s see: Ed Burns, Dick van Dyke, Guy Pearce, Crispin Glover, Brian Williams + Mitt Romney = Matt Fox, never give up acting! You are Hollywood’s current everyman, for sure! Or at least get a role in Anchorman the sequel!

  • Shawn EH

    He’s too thin, now. It’s aged him a bit. He looks scary intense in the movie trailer, though. And he was great in Speed Racer!

    • kimmeister

      Yes, I remember thinking how gaunt he looked in the trailer.  Now I know why!

  • MilaXX

    I kind of like it. It’s not setting the world on fire, but h looks nice & it’s not another James Dean setting or a bunch of blue steele looks.

  • CFNA1981

    he looks like an HIV positive fromthe 80’s… with an AZT addiction… sorry, but it really does…

  • CFNA1981

    i know the JLo sisters will probably block me for my last comment… and that’s too bad… i was having a blast :O(:O(:O(

  • Gabriella M

    I hate to be one of those bitter kittens, but is there going to be an All on The Line post? The designer was kind of stubbornly boring so I wouldn’t blame y’all.

    Every time I look at Matthew Fox, I can only see the dick I saw on the last few seasons of Lost (I came in around season 3 or 4, which was a mistake, in retrospect). 

    • kimmeister

      That designer was stubborn and full of herself.  I wanted to slap her upside the head repeatedly.

      • Gabriella M

        Yaaay! It’s up! 

  • AnaRoW

    He’s just so bland-looking and now all I see is Romney.  I had been interested in Alex Cross but since they replaced Idris Elba with Tyler Perry, you couldn’t pay me to go see that movie.

    I fully expected almost the entire cast to disappear after Lost went off the air so they’re doing better than I figured. Holloway is a comically bad actor, Lilly’s mostly indifferent to acting, and Fox is the definition of bland TV actor. I thought Naveen Andrews might make a return to movies but if he’s worked at all, I don’t know about it.

    • Rand Ortega

       Who replaces Idris Elba & can still be considered sane?

      • Presumptuous Insect

        Holy fuck. That is the craziest decision I have ever heard. Just saw Idris in Prometheus. One of only two things about the movie that wasn’t dull as shit. Go, Luther, my man.

      • CarolinLA

        Who replaces Idris Elba with TYLER PERRY???????!!!!!!  He was dreadful in that movie with Thandie Newton.  

        • librarygrrl64

          Maybe it’s financial? What am I saying, it’s ALWAYS financial. He a has huge built-in following, so I’m assuming that’s why. :-/

    • Amye

      Matthew Fox is actually a very good actor.  You should see the short-lived ‘Haunted’.  Or ‘We Were Marshall’.

      • CarolinLA

        He really grew on LOST as well.  He was spectacular in the last season, especially the final episode.

  • Goldie

    Evangeline had a baby after Lost ended and she had talked of quitting acting.  I guess she changed her mind but that might explain her lack of work.  Josh has a couple of movies in the can.

    Matthew Fox, ugh.  Never been a fan and these pics do nothing for me.  I was a huge Lost fan and I hated Jack.  Plus, rumors are he’s not such a nice guy.

    • CFNA1981

      and u can add… rumors he is gay… i mean isnt that the last trend in hollywood??? u better be gay or at least have rumors… other than no job at all!

    • dschubba

      I also wasn’t a Jack fan. It was a shame that the main character was the most boring dude on the island.

  • Vivi N

    He looks HOT! That smile…*swoons*

    Meanwhile, I am forever a LOSTIE!

  • ojosazules

    That smile is a sight for sore eyes. Nice.

  • Mary Stone

    and he’s not sporting a healthy growth of neckbeard thank jeebus.

  • Violina23

    Brooding in a desert…lol

  • Trisha26

    I just hate facial hair of any length.

  • Larkin21

    Never realized how much he and Edward Burns look alike.

  • Gayer Than Thou

    I dunno.  I’ve always thought he was hot, for a wife beater, but he’s looking a little methtastic here.

  • Le_Sigh

    He looks like Ed Burns, no?

  • jmorino08

    I never realized how much he looks like Mitt Romney. Do not like.

  • Nelliebelle1197

    He looks like Dick Van Dyke here. 

  • kingderella

    had forgotten how cute he was.

    (josh is still cuter, and the more talented actor, though. i wish he was cast as hawkeye, that would have been perfect.)

  • Sarah Thomas

    Oooh, SOMEONE’S angling for the lead in the inevitable Mitt Romney biopic.

  • formerlyAnon

    I like the skinny look (always, on almost every man) but in a suit he just looks like another well-groomed business guy. And since this is not his natural look, I’m sure I’ll go back to my previous indifferent ignorance about him.

    And if he’s really an abuser who has not conquered that behavior (it can be done, seen it in my family in my parents’ generation, but so rarely seems to be) my interest in him is less than nil.

  • gillian holroyd

    That last photo is very Ed Burns-ian

  • Presumptuous Insect

    Saw a weird headline about him. Said he hit a woman in the “vagina.”

  • Jen Hughes

    Oh man. Is he really tatted up now? That kind of upped his hot factor in my mind.

  • Lisa

    I don’t miss Matthew Fox (having heard about what he’s allegedly like in real life).  But I do miss Dr. Jack Shepherd!  Jack will always be hot to me.

  • H3ff

    Am I the only one getting a strong Darren Criss vibe from him?

  • Rebecca

    Don Draper’s Troublesome Brother

    • Ashley

       YES! THIS! OMG

  • ccm800

    Well now that he has given up beating up bus driver women in Cleveland maybe he ca get some work. I think he looks like  3 miles of bad road though – and considering the improvement edits done on an editorial I cant even imagine how he looks without 35 different hands working to make him look good. 

  • quiltrx

    I never thought it before, but these pictures make him appear to be a combination of Jim Caviezel and Alexander Skarsgard.

  • AnneElliot

    Wow, he looks gaunt — he actually looks like he WAS on a desert island.  Especially the third photo from the top.  And the arm tattoos are just creepy.

  • mozzer0906

    He has lost a ton of weight.  

  • Ashley

    Those tatts on his arms, that scruff and the next to the last picture, just EFF ME *dies*

  • blue

    He’s got that gaunt, old-man look that reminds me of my grandfather (RIP). 

  • Jessica Pippin

    Oh Jack. I’ve missed you! 

  • Hydra_D

    cute & fun pictures!

  • noni arthur

    I love his talent and presentation….my kinda man…a hunk !! Show me his police records…and beating women claims. Not believed!!
