  • Evy Colon – Garcia

    why does Alexander Ludwig have two women with him in the first picture (besides the obvious answer, because he can)?

    • Sarah


      • ConnieBV

        Because those aren’t keys in his pocket.

        • Sarah

          Snap! But both pockets look bulgy, so he’s either a Miracle of Biology, or he’s toting something in at least one of them…

        • YoungSally

          Gurl – you must have super x-ray vision because on my screen I can’t even detect a bulge.

    • susan6

      To give him a reason to keep his hands out of his friggin’ pockets.

  • Sarah

    IDK who Ludwig is, but why does he get the bitches?

    • Evy Colon – Garcia

      Because he came third in the 74th Annual Hunger Games! (in case my geek response was not clear, he played Cato in the Hunger Games)

      • Sarah

        I got ur geek response, but I haven’t seen the movie yet, so I didn’t make the connection. And, being an underdog lova, (and despite my distaste for the casting) I would always side with Peeta 😉

        • Evy Colon – Garcia

          He looks super hot in the Tribute Parade costume, which makes me feel a little ashamed because he’s a little fetus-y

          • Sarah

            Hehee. You are making me picture a sexy baby in a miner’s suit.

        • tereliz

          Oh, he was so NOT the underdog. I think he was favored to win, or maybe second after the guy from D11. He was one of the Career tributes, from Districts where kids fought to be the tribute and enter the Games.

          You should read the book, if you don’t see the movie.

          • Sarah

            I read all of the books. Peeta is an underdog of the heart, Katniss – wise. That was what I was meaning.

          • tereliz

            Gotcha. For some reason I thought you were thinking they were both underdogs. I ate a big lunch, it’s affecting my brains, lol.

      • manina

        He would have been a better Peeta, who was supposed to be strong and tall, taller than Katniss, anyway. I like the kid who played Peeta but he looked too young and not big enough, he would have never been picked by the careers.

    • alyce1213

      Because he shaved?

      • win!

      • Sarah

        Clean shaven dudes do not do it for me. Or blondes. He looks like a smooth Ken doll. But, point taken.

        • formerlyAnon

          I prefer clean shaven, but he *is* too Ken doll, also too young looking (he looks only a handful of years past being in my carpool for early morning practices.)

      • formerlyAnon

        Wish I’d thought of this.

        Wish it were true. That’d get the guys shaving for public events again, if they couldn’t pick up a girl (or boy, depending) at an event if they didn’t.

    • tereliz

      District 1?

      No, wait, District 2.

      • Evy Colon – Garcia

        District 2, with Clove (aka, tiny crazy girl with knives)

        • tereliz


    • formerlyAnon

      He was cute in the movie. In real life he looks like a college sports star dressed up for Important Press Events.

      In other news, Emile Hirsch wins Best Smile by a country mile.

      • Sarah

        OOh he does! I just got into Nebraska State on scholarship, mom!

    • Ms_flyover

      The one on the left is his girlfriend. The one on the right is his sister. And you’re use of the term bitches is as offensive as it is uninformed. JFGI.

      • Sarah

        My use of the term was a joke (albeit a distasteful use of the term). I’m sorry if you were offended. I’m not the only one who made the observation if you look at the other comments, and frankly, you don’t know me or what I’m informed about, so thank you for filling me in on who the ladies were, but in the future, please give me the benefit of the doubt regarding my sense of humor and that of the other commenters here.

      • manina

        “You’re use”? “You are” contracted to “You’re” means just that you are something ( a girl?) or somewhere, a location (at the red carpet), etc. “Your use” means that you are using (drugs?), the wrong contraction in this case, or “you are using your house as an office”, etc. (Grammar Police here).

        • demidaemon

          Heee! Grammar Sergeant here, okaying your report with great glee!

  • mshesterp

    Besides a few unfortunate neckbeards, I think they look pretty handsome, Eric Bana in particular. Rrrow.

  • Did Ludwig accessorize with two dates? If so, genius and idea snatched.

  • lifeisastory

    That first guy clearly put some time into his hair. So much for “effortless” style

    • 3boysful

      But his jacket is a smidge too small.

  • Sarah

    Hirsch is really cute, but he needs a neckbeard intervention, STAT.

    • sojourneryouth

      IKR? Neck pubes are not the business.

  • Not too terrible. Though, I did not know that razors had been banned in New York. Is that just in the city proper, or the entire state?

    • Heather

      It’s primarily a Brooklyn phenomenon.

      • julnyes

        At least in Brooklyn they properly commit to an actual beard. It isn’t this pubescent scruff that celebrities are wandering about with on the red carpet.

  • marlie

    Emile Hirsch is REALLY happy to be there. Marky Mark is serving up banker realness. I’d say Alexander Ludwig wins “Best Dressed” out of this bunch, though none of them were really outstanding. BUT… props for all of the guystars for at least making an effort.

    Also, Eric Bana is HAWT.

  • tereliz

    Mmm, Taylor Kitch. They need to make more John Carter movies, I don’t are how bad they are as long as he’s jumping around in a fur diaper.

    (I secretly love that John Carter movie almost as much as I love Waterworld. DON’T JUDGE ME! Dejah Thoris is probably the most pro-active Disney princess ever. Plus she looks like she could kill you with her bare hands, which is always a good quality in a Barsoomian princess…)

    • I judge. I’m sorry.

      • tereliz


    • Yeah, I loved it too. It was nice to see most of the cast of ROME having at it again.

      • tereliz

        Honestly, seeing both Ceasar AND Marc Antony as Heliosians was a little jarring, but The Wire’s McNulty as the hot Zadangan baddy more than made up for it.

    • MilaXX

      I love that John Carter movie!

      • tereliz

        I can’t help it, the Virginia joke kills me every time. Plus I’m eternally devoted to Woola and want a woola of my very own.

        • I might have to try it again, if you are such an advocate!

          • tereliz

            I was a little too critical the first time I saw it but after a second watch I was hooked. Personal bias for Kitch notwithstanding, I think the other characters are good and Carter is a great example of an imperfect hero. And while the lovey-dovey stuff starts out light, I think it evolves pretty naturally, and ends just perfectly.

            The big problem the movie had, IMO, was the marketing. None of the trailers showed any part of the story, just the special effects. It’s like they expected modern day audiences to be familiar with a book written in 1918. Yeah, no.

          • OK, it might get a second watch then!

    • conniemd

      I never saw him before. He looks very yummy here.

      • tereliz

        His true claim to fame is Friday Night Lights, which is where Connie Britton’s hair got its start.

    • paginatrix

      We should start a Secret John Carter Society.

      • tereliz

        AWESOME! Can I be president? I have all the Burroughs novels on my Kindle. 😉

  • susan6

    Every single one of them has their hands in their pockets. Weird. Did they have some sort of agreement?

  • ritalinsmoothie

    The last guy for me is the scroll-down fug of the post.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Eric Bana, why are you so boring?…Hello, Tim Riggins. I still love you. Texas forever.

  • Jessica Freeman

    For this to be Mark’s movie, he is underwhelming me. And he usually makes me swoon.

  • So many people we don’t see out much!

    • tereliz

      Right? I was like, Oh, look, Eric Bana. Oh, look, Emile Hirsch…

  • MichelleRafter

    Mark Walhberg looks like a banker on his lunch hour who just happened to be walking by. He’d look so much better with a haircut and his jacket buttoned.

  • Florence Whytingale

    mark wahlberg used to be sexy?! to quote my favourite christopher guest film, “wha’ happened?”.

    • conniemd

      He was very, very hot in “The Italian Job” which Charlize Theron. Since then he’s pretty much taken on a blue collar type look which I though was sexy in “Invincible” and “The Departed.”

    • Tatiana Luján

      He always looks like fun to me. And fun = sexy.

      • Oh yeah. You would, but you might not take him to family brunch the next morning.

  • MilaXX

    Eric Bana never used to look hot to me, but da-yum I like what he’s selling here.
    Why is Mark Wahlberg looking like an old business man?
    The rest = meh.

  • conniemd

    I’m so excited, not only did I get some of my favorite sausages – err beefcake on a Thursday in this, but every single one is NOT wearing a black, grey or blue monochrome tie. Each has a print or color. Two striped ties! (though I’m not a big fan of stripes). Be still my beating heart and lady parts.

  • mjude

    I love mark cant help myself

    • Sarah

      Say hello to your motha for me.

      • boweryboy

        Hey chicken…

  • Mona_Visa

    That Eric Bana pic is totally working for me. Going in the secret file.

  • cmb92191

    All kinds of cuties!

  • barbarienne

    The best looking dudes on this page are the two guys I’ve never heard of, but who are both smiling in at least one of their pics. Why is everyone else making weird faces? Protip, fellows: Don’t try for “dignified” if it doesn’t come naturally. Go out there and emote. It’s what you do for a living.

    Walhberg can get away with being serious because he’s aging so gracefully. Who would have expected that from Marky Mark?

  • kimmeister

    In the contest of the black & silver diagonally striped ties, Eric Bana wins.

  • boweryboy

    Mmmm… I’ll Eric his Bana any day.

    Hirsch – shower, shave, and put on a tie please. Hell, get a haircut while you’re at it.

    Kitsch – Boring.

    Ludwig – Likewise.

    Wahlberg – When did his head get so huge?

    Also, to all of them – get your hands out of your pockets!

  • jilly_d

    Lol @ those two tacky ass broads on Ludwig’s arm. Not your best accessories, pal.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    E. Bana FTW. Yum!

  • Imasewsure

    Thank you for smiling Emile Hersh! The rest of you boys are boring as f^&k although I do appreciate the free calendars every year

  • Danielle


  • H2olovngrl


  • KT

    I feel like every single one of these guys should look hotter than they do. Taylor Kitsch used to be so sexy, what happened to youuuu

  • quiltrx

    Mmmm, Eric Bana…how YOU doin? (none of you tell him I couldn’t think of his name for a minute…where the heck has he been?)
    The rest, a bit sloppy (you disappoint, Wahlberg)…and the hands in pockets, oy vey.

  • manina

    Alexander (What does it have in its pocketsess?) is the only one that does not look tired. Mark and Eric could also look like they came out of a really boring and tiring board meeting at a bank.

  • Diego!

    Eric Bana you look like my grandpa… WTF is going on with you? Go eat some carbs and go back to the gym. Mark, you get yourself a haircut. I don’t care about the others, thank you very much 😀

  • Daktari100

    That sad moment when you see the first set of pictures of Mark Walhberg where he doesn’t look hot…

  • Fred Vaughn

    Mark forgot to gargle before he left the office for this “shindig”

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Why is everyone’s zipper all wonky and looks like no one zipped up all the way? Not that I was looking.

  • demidaemon

    Depressing except for Eric Bana.
