Dan Bucatinsky at the “I’ll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers” Opening Night

Posted on December 06, 2013

Sigh. It’s always worse somehow when the cute gays let us down on the style front (See entries for: Quinto, Zachary and Ferguson, Jesse Tyler).



Dan Bucatinsky attends the Opening Night of Bette Midler in “I’ll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers” in Westwood, California.


Granted, it’s not really an A-List dressed-to-impress kind of event, but still. You commit to the velvet blazer and bow tie, you’re officially attempting to put the effort in. But the top half of this outfit doesn’t go with the bottom half – and we actually like a velvet blazer paired with jeans. It’s a great semi-classic look if you do it right. But the fit and proportions here are all kinds of schlumpy, the blues are too close together, and the grey shirt and purple tie belong with a different outfit.

Another disappointing gay in a long line of them. Sigh. Brothers! You are supposed to be setting an example! Step it up, bitches!

    James Novak, you are a hot mess.

    • MilaXX

      He can’t think straight. His husband pimped him out and destroyed their marriage.

      • Rand Ortega

        Just watched. BOOM! (The sound of my head popping off)

        • MilaXX

          I know right? So many feels. Poor Liv no wonder she has attachment issues. Her parents are vultures. Stupid Cy should have listened to Mellie. She tried to warn him. I’mma have to reup on wine before next week.

          • Rand Ortega

            Now I get why Olivia never tells anyone she loves them (she only told Fitz she’s in love with him, never “I love you”). Cyrus is my favorite character– never has 1 man been so flawed, so vulnerable & so entrenched in his stubborness to hang onto his unfortunate, destructive ways. Love the idea of Mellie’s character (God, Bellamy Young is GORGEOUS), which makes me love & pity her half the time, hate & rail against her the other half.

            (PS: Just heard we’re only getting 18 eps this season instead of 22– KWash’s pregnancy)

          • MilaXX

            Yes. Every one is jumping on this split season stuff. Next week is the mid season finale. Then no new episode until late Feb when we get the back 8.

          • I’m already laughing at the reaction of my Twitter timeline when they see “In Feb…!” next week after the mid season finale. They are gonna lose their shit. LOL. But, hey, consistent back-to-back episodes since the Fall premiere? We’ve been lucky.

          • MilaXX

            Especially after whatever bomb Shonda drops in the last 5 mins. I predict epic wall slides.

          • You pretty much just named my two favorite characters on that show: Mellie and Cyrus. Rounding out the Top 3 would be Huck.

          • Rand Ortega

            *sigh* Huck. So tortured. So sweet. So MF’in scary.

          • fursa_saida

            Huck is my tormented PTSD baby and I love him so much.

          • Rand Ortega

            LOL! Just spit out my dinner laughing!
            Pulling out teeth w/ a pliers & talking dental health, that’s our Huck!

  • hughman

    Andy Dick is looking a little chunky.

    • Rand Ortega


    • SpillinTea

      Effortless shade. Snaps hunty!

    • Imasewsure

      Except this one is a cutie… Mr D not so much

  • LittleKarnak

    Awful…..F for poor effort…

  • Danielle

    Oh, honey.

    • ThesisMonkey

      exactly my thought

  • formerlyAnon

    I’m seeing adorable, nerdy carpool dad who thinks he has a unique sense of style. Because he was the only one of his friends in college who had more than one tie.

    ETA: I think the biggest issue is he doesn’t realize how things photograph. This probably looked perfectly acceptable in the bathroom mirror at home. Um. Sort of.

    • Maybe he dresses without his glasses. I do my hair without mine so the hairspray won’t go on my lenses. Then I put them on and it looks so different.

  • MilaXX

    I usually like Dan, but this looks sloppy. That jacket looks goodwill bin.
    However, I am still in post Scandal mode and I just want to hug him for all the wrong his husband did to him.

    • Rand Ortega

      The rentboy line was priceless!

      • MilaXX

        Shonda writes the best reads for all her characters. Have you seen the Scandal cartoon?Search KevonStage on youtube. He’s done all of this season and is going to start back at the beginning during the off season.

  • Clueless_Jock

    No comment.

  • That jacket is a terrible shape. It might’ve been salvaged if it were a proper blazer but with that asymmetrical zip arrangement it was never going to work. However, I hope he had a good night, because that show sounds AMAZING.

  • Laura Renee

    He has a cute face!

  • another_laura

    Wow, so cute and such dreadful attire.

  • jw_ny

    Gosh, he’s such a cutie…ya’d think he’d have a better sense of style…

  • Miss_Led

    That is taking “not matchy-matchy” to a whole new depth.

  • Glam Dixie

    Bless his heart


  • marlie

    Wha…? The blazer is at least a size too big, and it looks like he slept in it. And the jeans + boots scream “biker,” while the jacket, shirt & tie scream “dandy.” Sorry, dude, none of this is working for me.

  • fashion4ever

    Go home, you’re drunk

  • ashtangajunkie

    Everything looks so rumpled, like he had a long, drunken nap in his clothes before he went out.

  • Janet B

    Did he raid someone else’s closet and get dressed?

    I feel a bit bad that I don’t even like his glasses.

    • marlie

      I love the glasses. I kind of want them for myself. 😉

      • Janet B

        I’ll get them for you. 🙂

  • CT14

    What is wrong with that jacket? It’s far more than the fact it doesn’t fit.

    He looks like my daughter this morning, when she tried to put on her coat and her sweater sleeves shoved up the coat sleeves. All bulky and uncomfortable.

    Don’t do this anymore.

    Maybe if he ditched the jacket for a belt?

  • Mona_Visa

    I had no idea who he is, so I looked him up. There are some *very* beautiful pics of him out there– sadly, these ones aren’t among them, but– the man has serious potential. Going on my watch list.

    • Ramon Figueroa

      Watch him in “All over the Guy.” Him and Richard Ruccolo are to die for in it, even if the movie is a bit slight. And he was hilariously smarmy as one of Will’s dates from hell in “Will and Grace.”

  • boweryboy

    What in fresh hell? It looks like he didn’t even try – like he’s resting on gay and pretty to do the heavy lifting. Everything about this is bad and sloppy and ill fitting and wrinkled. It’s too bad. He’s cute, whoever he is.

  • Trickytrisha

    Really awkward jacket. He looks like he dressed in the dark, pulling items from his closet (or the floor).

  • tereliz

    I’m willing to bet that blazer is black, but it’s showing up navy and rumplier than it should be. Have your velvets pressed before photo ops, folks!

    I would have been wholeheartedly behind this without the bowtie, plus a lilac dress shirt and jeans that fit.

    • MilaXX

      His bowtie ensemble on the show last night looked so much better. I guess he needs Lyn Paolo to help him.

  • Rhonda Shore

    It’s really disastrous, that jacket looks like a total schmatta,

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    I am fat and I can still manage to give the illusion of having a waist that is smaller than my shoulders. Those jeans are horrible. Try some Levis 560s because, Gurrrl You Are Not A Tetris Block.

  • Rode hard and put away wet.

  • e jerry powell

    But Dan Bucatinsky has always had more of the B-Gay Schulbby thing going on, so I cut him a little slack.

    • MilaXX

      I’d cut him a break on everything except that jacket. That is something only a 20 something boy bander could get away with.

      • e jerry powell

        I can’t argue with that.

  • Ramon Figueroa

    I hope they videotape that play. I hear Bette is fabulous in it.

  • Rand Ortega

    I, for 1, expect more from Emmy winners.

    • SpillinTea

      Although to be fair, how is he the only one on the show with an Emmy? Hes good, but come on.

      • Rand Ortega

        Personally, for me, Jeff Perry really deserved the statue. From the dueling strip scene w/ DB to Cy’s heart attack, he knocked it out of the park last season.

        • And Bellamy Young! But, granted, she should get it for this season. *fingers crossed*

          • Rand Ortega

            This. The scene w/ Barry Bostwick (you know which 1) alone (mentally turning my head, gasping & cringing*).

          • MilaXX

            YES! She owned that entire episode. In fact Bellamy has been putting it some really strong performances this season. Drunk Mellie, Mellie dealing with Big Jerry, Mellie trying to warn Cy and then saying “numb & fine are the same.” I’m loving Mellie this season.

      • MilaXX

        Is his Emmy for this show or Grey’s Anatomy?

        • SpillinTea

          Scandal. Outstanding Guest Actor or something. how he got an emmy before Miss Cyrus is a mystery yet to be solved.

  • kimmeister

    The only thing I like here is the bow tie.

  • boweryboy

    I Googled him.
    He’s a frumpy schlumpy dresser in general. Outside of wearing a tux, I think this may be a personal best for him.

  • alyce1213

    What a cute guy. He’s trying to be quirky and intentionally unfashionable, I think. He’d be better off not doing that.

  • Just Me

    This gay needs to Pay a Gay…as quickly as possible, baby. Somebody needs to “handle it.”

  • Such a face, but honey NO.

  • TippiH

    He must not have gotten the memo on trickle-down fashion because when a handsome gay man wears dumpy, ill-fitting clothes it trickles bad fashion right on down to our straight partners/husbands. COME ON! We count on you to set the bar so that by the time it trickles down to middle American suburbia we can AT LEAST get our husbands in slim fit jeans and casual blazers. I know it’s a big responsibility, but wives are eternally grateful. xox

  • Fred Vaughn

    Hemming would have made a difference… all I’ll say.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    He looks like a grad student in Philosophy attending a party for professors, but there’s a cute first year there and he dug this out of his closet – and the shirt he got from his mom.

  • Ann VerWiebe

    Nope. Not having any of this. It’s an opening and any decent theatre person should be able to put together one hot look out of his or her closet. Whatever costume designer was in attendance should have slapped him silly.

  • Anplica Fiore

    Wrinkled mess.
