Adam Scott at the A.C.O.D. Los Angeles Premiere

Posted on September 27, 2013

Wholesome boyfriend-material hobbit-man Adam Scott is going to be our soothing entry into Sausage Friday, darlings. We’re cranky and we need something non-threatening to get us going.


Adam Scott attends the premiere of “A.C.O.D.” at the Landmark Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Okay, very cute, but it almost looks more suited for a walk through the English countryside circa 1930 than it does a red carpet in 2013.

Are we really so odd that we wind up crankier on Friday mornings than we do on Monday mornings? Are we the only ones like that? Mondays for us are all, “Hit the ground running!” and Friday mornings are all “Fuck me gently with a chainsaw*, is it STILL NOT THE WEEKEND?!?!?!”

*Thank you, Heathers. For so much.

  • I’m with you TLo. My Fridays are always frantic and crazy. One of my bosses likes to save all of the things she has to give me, for me to get my job complete, until about 2 or 3 every fucking Friday. Makes me insane!!
    Mr. Scott goes nicely with my hazelnut coffee, though so thank you for that.

    We can do it!!

    • formerlyAnon

      That’s awful. My worst days are usually Wednesday or Thursday, when it really hits me that no, yet again I will NOT get done everything I delusionally hoped to finish this week.

      • She’s a passive aggressive procrastinator. But she’s also a Rev. Chaplain, so I immediately worry about my Karma points whenever I bitch about her. Happy Friday, honey.

    • marlie

      There’s someone who like to call/email me with “urgent” questions at – no lie – 4:30 on Friday afternoons. I might still be in the office (most of the time), but I’m in clean up mode, and prepping for what I have to do the following week.

    • anotherkate

      THIS. This times a thousand. Although I tend to get this kind of thing at 5:45 almost every day after hours of silence, because my boss works on the West coast and I’m on the East. I’ve started ignoring those emails and saving them for the next morning.

      • Well, once we are finished answering phone messages, returning calls, reading the mail/email, checking the internet for overnight news, having lunch, and returning calls that came in during lunch, you people are packing up to go home. It’s especially annoying when we need to speak with an east coast company after 3 p.m. our time. You know, just like you have to wait for us to wake up so you can do business with us. We all have our cross to bear.

        • anotherkate

          Oh, totally fair! I neglected to mention that (at least in theory) my boss works NY hours, so she should know better. Generally I don’t have a problem with East Coast/West Coast logistics.

  • Jaeda Laurez

    Hard Fridays are why Sausage Friday is needed. It soothes the spirit.

    He looks nice, in a regular dude kind of way, although his hair is doing odd things on that one side.

    • Rhonda Shore

      Cute, but those shoes bother me with those threads. A dark grey or black shoe was called for, don’t you think?

  • RussellH88

    Fridays make me cranky because it’s a lot easier to count down the hours until the weekend. It’s so close, yet so far.

    Whereas with Monday you just kinda shrug and say “Eh, I have to do what I have to do.”

    This comment had nothing to do with fashion.

  • formerlyAnon

    As Eddie Izzard says “Monday mornings don’t suck. Your life sucks.”
    Obviously your lives do not suck.

    • AnnaleighBelle

      Anything Eddie Izzard says should be carved into a pretty marble plaque.

  • MilaXX

    heh, Nope, I’m a I hate Monday person. It’s so bad I never start a new job on a Monday. Always give my start date on a Tuesday or Wednesday.
    Adam’s a cutie. I like his British nerd look.

  • formerlyAnon

    Also, “Wholesome boyfriend-material hobbit-man” is perilously close to damning with faint praise.

    But visually accurate.

    • He doesn’t look like the kind of man that can make you lose all your common sense, does he?

      • formerlyAnon

        True. Fortunately, in real life looks can be deceiving. And even if they’re not, sometimes wholesome boyfriend material is exactly what the doctor ordered.

  • Aurumgirl

    To me, Adam Scott always reminds me of a vintage Italian film star. I can never remember who. But I like this outfit–it is casual and yet well put together. You don’t really see much of that on young men!

    • There’s a bit of the young Marcello Mastroianni about him!

      • alyce1213

        Hmm, yeah. I get that vibe, but he’s not as beautiful as Marcello. (No one is.)

  • Mrs. Julien


  • Jessica Freeman

    I do find it harder to get out of bed on Fridays, than Mondays. I’ve already mentally checked out for the weekend and am making a list of possible medical conditions so I can leave early.

    Oh, and I hate his shoes.

  • lobsterlen

    He is very cute and I have loved him since Party Down which I highly recommend … very funny comedy.

    • Party Down is the best! Thank you, Netflix Instant.

      • lobsterlen

        I loved the show and as a result developed a hatred of Glee and Parks and Rec when Jane Lynch and Adam left that was the nail in coffin.

  • unpious

    My work schedule means Monday is actually my “Friday” and Friday is my Wednesday. So Sausage Friday is also Hump Day. Which just works out beautifully.

    As for Mr. Scott, I would like this much better if he didn’t look like he had just been unexpectedly woken up.

  • Golfkat

    I’m down for a walk through the English countryside circa 1930.

    • formerlyAnon

      With attractive clean-shaven men in decent clothes? I’ll take that tour. Though not if it’s cold and rainy, as the English countryside seems so often to be.

      • muzan-e

        That’s why you bring an umbrella, when you take your country gent for a walk.

        But only one. *g*

        • formerlyAnon

          No fool, you.

    • Bridget Smith

      What TLo says as a faint criticism, I say as glowing praise.

    • charlotte

      Now I want him to be on Downton Abbey. An American relative of Cora’s maybe?

    • gabbilevy

      I’m going to imagine this was a nod to “Parks and Rec” going to London in the season premiere last night. Well played, Scott. Well played.

  • MartyBellerMask

    Yes, thank you HEATHERS. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Oh yeah, Thank you TLo for this excellent Sausage Friday kickoff. The Ben Wyatt drag suits him. Shoes aren’t working for me though.

  • I hate working on Fridays because the administrators on that day are so woefully lacking that it’s always a guaranteed train wreck. Plus I think the surgeons tell the hospital to illuminate the blinking “VACANCY” sign over the front door, guaranteeing mayhem for my entire shift. Which makes the occasional Friday at home extra blissful!

    This guy’s jacket looks too small for him. Other than that, it’s a nice, comforting, tweedy look, and I am a fan of button-down collars.

  • filmcricket

    He looks vaguely sleepy and mildly irritated himself. Dig the whole look, though, especially that tie.

  • PastryGoddess

    I don’t know who he is, but I have no problem objectifying him.

    • formerlyAnon

      Sausage Friday is always such a salutory lesson for me. It’s good to remember that if living in a glass house, it’s wrong to throw stones.*

      *Or at least not to throw stones at basically decent individuals who occasionally indulge in some gormless objectification of public figures. All rights to throw stones at the institutionalized objectification of women as a whole, are reserved.

    • mhleta

      Amy Poehler’s boy friend on Parks and Rec.

  • Karen Belgrad

    You quoted Heathers. I knew there was a reason (beyond the 1M obvious ones) that I was obsessed with this blog.

    “Our love is god, let’s go get a slushie”

    • Karen Belgrad

      PS He looks like an extra from the Legend of Bagger Vance

  • hmariec19

    He can be my hobbit boyfriend. He’s adorable. He looks like he needs a nap though.

    • teensmom99

      He looks like he needs a nap because he is suffering from “Paul Rudd Syndrome.” It chiefly attacks guys are can play all sorts of non-threatening and funny but not too crazy boyfriends in lots of different movies/tv shoes. They get overworked. The cure–a few unpopular movies like This is 40.

  • KellsBells

    “…it almost looks more suited for a walk through the English countryside circa 1930 than it does a red carpet in 2013.”

    You say that like it’s a bad thing!

  • TrooperSchaf

    is there a reason to be cranky when there is sausage friday to look forward to?

  • ashtangajunkie

    Any opportunity to quote Heathers should always be taken. Whenever I see Adam Scott, I think of him in Stepbrothers and it makes me laugh.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    Could difficult Fridays have anything to do with Project Runway being on last night?

    Adam’s looking good here. On an semi-related note, I was a bit disappointed with the premiere of Parks & Rec last night. The London storyline seemed forced (but I did enjoy the pretty scenery). Hopefully they’ll get back to form next week.

  • mhleta

    A movie premiere red carpet requires much less formal attire than, say, an awards show red carpet. There’s so much that I appreciate about his choices here. Yes to all of it.

  • lalahartma

    He looks cute.

  • muzan-e

    I never feel that mid-week hump, and maybe that’s why I’m generally so strung-out by Friday. It’s my extra-30-on-the-elliptical morning, just so that I can burn off all the frazzled aggression before I have to make contact with other human beings. *g*

    • formerlyAnon

      There are specific people that, if at all possible, I will not call/meet with unless I’ve had a solid hour of hard (for me) cardio already that day. It’s not a scheduling quirk you can easily explain, I’ve found that calling it “a dental appointment” works better.

  • Hoffa_w_HerHead

    He looks great from the waist up and ankles down! I wish the pants were a different fabric to provide some contrast, but a solid 7/10 bc he’s a cutie!

  • It’s probably his shoes giving him that look. They’re far too new and stiff and nowhere near broken in enough to go walking anywhere for long. I bet there are band-aids on the backs of his heels.


    I think Fridays are especially difficult for self-employed folks who work from home, or independent contractors. I love Mondays – I’m totally hitting the ground running, but folks with office gigs seem to spend most of the day catching up, so I get to really focus and get shit done. By Friday, I’m burned out from firing on all cylinders PLUS it’s like the rest of the world decides to play catch-up before their weekend, so my inbox becomes inundated with things everyone should have provided me with on Monday but still expects handled by the end of the day. Luckily, happy hour starts as 12:01pm when you work from home. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • conniemd

      I’m self-employed and I hate Fridays. In fact, I tend to take Fridays off and work on Sundays!

      • It usually ends up about the same for me. I’m too hard-headed to turn things around in a single day (unless it’s a tight deadline, of course) and knock off early on a Friday, then have a leisurely go at things on Sundays. Keeps my stress levels down.

  • Violentcello

    I know he’s done other stuff, but my mind always goes to him singing the solo of Sweet Child of Mine in Stepbrothers. “I’m derrick and i can sing high like thiiiis.”

    He has a little bit of a Joseph Gordon Levitt quality, doesn’t he? Or is that just me?

  • Matt Bailer

    Adam Scott might be my biggest celeb-crush at the moment, especially after seeing him geeking out about Breaking Bad on Talking Bad. Also, his hair is epic.

  • alyce1213

    I adore what he’s wearing, but the jacket is a tiny bit short, and the sleeves are a tiny bit long.
    And RED socks!

  • Erica_Vuitton

    I just love a tweed suit. Instantly classy. But the brown laces with the tan shoes irrationally make me twitch.

  • Shawn EH

    Well, at least the retro look does actually suit him to a T. He knows his wheelhouse.

  • Inspector_Gidget

    There’s a Phoenix Wright, Ace Attorney thing going on here. Must be the hair.

    • demidaemon

      Perhaps that’s why I’m so into it. I personally prefer what videogamerecaps have so lovingly renamed it as “Anal Attorney,” because everyone–EVERYONE–in the game is just so gay.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    I used to say “i wish it was Friday” quite a lot until some coworker told me I was wishing my life away. Every morning when the alarm goes off I tell myself what day of the week it is and wish myself a happy day and then I hit the snooze button. So “Happy Friday, Everyone!”

    I like this “walk in the English countryside” look and I’d also like to take a walk in the English countryside. All good.

  • KT

    I just love you guys. Almost as much as I love my dead gay son (thanks again Heathers!).

  • “[B]ut it almost looks more suited for a walk through the English countryside circa 1930 than it does a red carpet in 2013.”

    …that’s pretty much what I look for in a wholesome boyfriend-material hobbit-man…

  • frannyprof

    He is such a cute little Beanie Baby.

  • AnnPopovic

    If you were happy every day of your life you wouldn’t be human, you’d be a game show host. Our love is god, let’s go get a slushie. Also, that jacket is SO five minutes ago.

  • Even the work we love gets tiresome after five grueling days. But I know you are happy on Monday because you do so love your work and this blog. And I do too.
    And Adam Scott is cute and I love this look. It’s perfection. Adorbs.

  • macwell

    Those are hot shoes. Want! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • AnniNoone

    That is no hobbit-man. That is the love child of Joel McHale and David Tennant. You all go talk with Gandalf, Adam and I have some business to conduct.

  • jorinde

    Would there be any better place and time to be than an English countryside ca. 1930?

  • calimon

    I’ve long argued a similar sentiment, which contradicts the classic ‘TGIF’ attitude.

    I believe that if you are going to have a 40-hour, Monday through Friday workweek, then Mondays are my preferred day, versus Friday. Because just as TLo has expressed, Fridays I am both beat from the full workweek, and frustrated that I must show up and put in one more cursed day, before I am finally free for the weekend.

    If I must choose a day of the workweek, it is Monday. For Mondays, most people including myself, return refreshed and rested and generally ready for the week ahead.
