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!

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

    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.

  • neofashionista

    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?

    Love it all

      eeeeeeeexactly.  First words out of my mouth.

  • http://twitter.com/Nancer Nancer

    Nice. Thanks for the Friday lift!

  • crash1212

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

  • Rebecca Jay

    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.
