Dylan McDermott for August Man Magazine

Posted on January 04, 2013

We’re feeling the need for some MAN ’round these parts, kittens.

‘American Horror Story’ star Dylan McDermott covers the January 2013 issue of August Man magazine photographed by Boon and styled by Chia Wei Choong.

That’ll do just fine.

Don’t get us wrong; it’s the standard Blue Steel guyditorial. But come on, if there’s a guy out there tailor-made for the Blue Steel, it’s Mr. Dylan.

Although we could’ve skipped the unbuttoned shirt with medallions in that last shot. That’s a bit much, in a “Soft Rock Hits of the Seventies” kind of way.

      Does everything need to be instagrammed?

      Mmmmm, manly.
      I want to watch him chop wood and then use said wood to build a fireplace in front of which we’ll be snuggling.

        Yeah.  “Snuggling”.  😀

    • butterflysunita

      Great photos.  But is there really a magazine called August Man?

      • kimmeister

        Only for very majestic and imposing men!

      • http://twitter.com/grooxcore Marie Ee

        It’s a pretty quality men’s magazine here!

    • Jecca2244

      they must have a ton of watch clients…love all the watch “beauty” shots. He has only struck me recently as undeniable gorgeous.

      • altalinda

        You took the words right out of my mouth.

      • ampg

        Yes, I had to scroll back up to the title to double-check that these weren’t for a watch ad.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=13810915 Mary Scheidegger

        I was going to comment “is he selling watches”? They seem to be front-and-center in all shots

      • gabbilevy

        Not only… I think it’s the *same* watch in all four shots.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/RDQ2FM3KBGUGUIZWEJD4NJ76IY de

         They do! Am from around Singapore parts, and August is 10% trying to be GQ, 90% watch ads.

      this is absolute blue eyed perfection
      if we were ever going to clone anyone he would be it for me

      He drinks the blood of virgins or kittens or something, because I swear he is getting hotter rather than older. 

    • decormaven

      “Soft Rock Hits of the Seventies” – Bwah!! Even better was “Hey Love” – “no, my brother, you got to buy your own.” Good times.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

        As a child of the 70s myself, I find 70s soft rock hits kind of hot. Go, Air Supply!

    • MilaXX

      I like the watch, but he does nothing for me.

      • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

         He’s good looking but he just misses the mark for me somehow too. None of these pictures make me want him.

        • Kate4queen

          It’s okay, I’ll take care of that for you. 😉

    • mellbell

      Over the holidays I realized that he played the cute neighbor guy in the 1994 remake of “Miracle on 34th Street.” He has aged very well.

      THANK YOU TLO.  Yummy yummy.

      • Frank_821

        it’s funny I recall that crossover episode between Ally McBeal and the Practice. Ally had the same reaction…haha

    • EditKitten

      I almost universally hate beards, and I never had a thing for Dylan McDermott, but that beard makes me suddenly have a thing for DM. Damn, that works.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/XPWSQ2BDU5XJIA23AMYVBRWZBA Eric

         Beard looks good in these photos, but pretty patchy when I’ve seen him elsewhere. He really can rock heavy stubble though.

    • PrunellaV

      On the cover, he looks like The Most Interesting Man In The World. Dos Equis, anyone?

        eeeeeeeexactly.  First words out of my mouth.

      Nice. Thanks for the Friday lift!

    • crash1212

      I am a sucker for a man with blue eyes and dark hair. Thank you!

      As a woman of a certain age, who was youngwildandfree in a certain decade, I like the “Soft Rock Hits of the Seventies” look.  Especially worn so well by Mr. Dylan McDermott.

      • Judy_J

        I am in complete agreement.

    • Kristy Evans

      All of these photos look like a watch ad. 

      • Snailstsichr

         Except it is a little difficult to pay attention to the watches when his blue eyes are staring at you. Not that I am complaining, mind you. 

    • Annabelle Archer

      ooooohhhhh my.

    • http://opinionandamovie.blogspot.com/ Deitra S.

      Is it just me, or does he look like he’s been photoshopped within an inch of his life?  It’s a shame because I think he looks fantastic now – every single (faint) crease and line included.  He looks dreamy in these photos, but he also looks like a Madame Tussauds version of himself.  I’m disappointed.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VZLU6YVO4BRTELTTH3GRAAMWZQ Dot

        Seems like this is a running theme for celebrity photo shoots now. Sadly, the men are no longer excluded from the wax figure treatment.

    • http://twitter.com/SillyGrrlJen Silly Grrl

      God damn. That beard. Sigh.

    • formerlyAnon

      Wow, that cover photo!

      Looks waaay good in a suit.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/XPWSQ2BDU5XJIA23AMYVBRWZBA Eric

      The watch is a “GS” a brand that appeared out or nowhere and which seems to be available only through select fashion magazines and Victorinox Swiss Army Knife outlets. 

    • kikisayshi

      Well, hello there…

    • Trisha26

      Simply don’t like facial hair. Aside from that he looks better than I expected – if identical in every shot.

    • elirt

      Is that Dylan McDermott or Dermot Mulroney?! 

      That aside – thank you for this healthy does of man love. Mmmmm….

    • KSuKim

      He’s looking a little Pete Townshend-y.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1009777 Valeria Josy Rivera

      I’ve seen him in person! He came to my store, and boy is he aging like a fine wine, or what? 😀

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      Blue Steel and pricey watches…how can you go wrong?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/VWVJVYZJCTXSQJA4E5PNEZLJA4 Jessica

      Christ on a cracker!  Those eyes!

    • RebeccaKW

      Woof.  Those eyes.  This is a perfect way to round out my Friday.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      He’s always given me the creeps, and these photos have only increased that feeling. 

    • nannypoo

      Is it hot in here?

      • sweetsadness


    • Kate4queen

      I love him. Even with a beard. Can’t help it. LOL

    • http://twitter.com/chylde chylde

      Dylan McDermott is much hotter than Dermott Mulroney! 

    • alyce1213

      That skit was hysterical.  

    • Lauren Schneider

      I have loved him since his The Practice days.

    • JasmineAM

      Haha I just watched “The Campaign” and someone in the movie called McDermott, Dermot Mulroney. 

    • quiltrx

      Rawr.  He has always been a gorgeous thing, and seems to be getting better all the time.  I even like the beard…and I do not like beards.  Dylan, you’re quite a man.

      And, uncles? Dylan practically INVENTED Blue Steel!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1208138556 Sara Munoz Munoz

      Haha. We watched a commercial for “Angels in the Outfield” yesterday and I said to my husband “QUICK! Dylan McDermott or Dermot Mulroney??” His response was “uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…….”
      For the record, it was Mulroney.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1208138556 Sara Munoz Munoz

      I did not realize he had tattoos.

    • Tamara Hogan

      How refreshing to see some actual chest hair. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_H3XBSNN3JLZWI4R2EPZ2BQYT5U Suzanne S

      Unfortunately his character in AHS season 1 ruined any attractiveness I might have seen in him. Especially that one scene (the one crying, looking out the window-UGH). I still want to B-slap that character and say “MAN UP!”

    • formerlyAnon

      Okay, I remember why he’s pinging “country singer.”  Eddie Rabbitt, no?

      Now I’ve gotta get rid of “how I love a rainy night” swinging away in my head.

    • jjfg

      Best he’s looked in a while!

    • e jerry powell

      The medallions go with the tattoos on his right arm. It’s a TIGER!

    • librarygrrl64

      He has the most striking coloring. Love that “black Irish/Celtic” combo. <3

    • LuluinLaLa

      I’m sorry, I can’t care about any of the clothes he’s wearing because those eyes! Are! AMAZING!

    • bluefish

      He looks great.  Love those blue blue eyes.  Wish you gentlemen would do a feature on the recent Man in a Great Suit ad campaigns Bill Nighy has been up to of late.   Killer and playful all at once.  But, anyway, I like these photos just fine!

    • RocknRollmom

      Ok, so those pics actually made me skip a beat or two.  I had forgotten how unbelievably scrumptious he is.
