    Idris doing grown man things in that tux. A little pooling at the feet, but…I’ll never look at a bowtie the same way again.

    • Sobaika

      Please tell me you have seen his bowtie tweet. It will change your life.

      • Jaeda Laurez

        You know i did. i have been forever changed.

          ☸☸ ☸☸☸ ☸☸☸☸ ☸๵☸☸ ☸☸☸☸ ☸☸☸☸It DOES seem like he smiles a lot…

          Good lord. Where’s my Southern Baptist Lady fan when I need it?

      • MilaXX

        I still can’t look at that picture without giggling. I was online when that tweet came across my timeline and like a lot of folks I was wondering of his account had been hacked.

      • Lily-Rygh

        I’m not on twitter — please explain? Because frankly, even random pictures of Idris change my life on a daily basis…

        • @Biting Panda

          2 days ago, he tweeted, “My Bow makes my dick hard every time I smile…is that normal?”

          So yeah, that happened.

          Personally, it made my recent joining of Twitter, completely worth it!!

          • Lily-Rygh

            ::picking my jaw up from the floor and my mind up from the gutter:: It DOES seem like he smiles a lot…

            Good lord. Where’s my Southern Baptist Lady fan when I need it?

          • Rand Ortega

            Somebody get the smellin’ salts. Mama just fainted.

          • Sobaika

            How funny, Idris also makes my dick hard.

          • Rand Ortega


          • marlie

            I just snort-laughed.

          • marlie

            And I have you to thank for bringing it to my attention. 😉

          • bellafigura1

            I said it upthread, but this is probably a better spot: So deliciously mysterious! I don’t even want it explained.

          • !!!

      • KateShouldBeWorking

        Dammit, now that’s all I’m thinking about.

  • gabbilevy

    You knew what I needed, didn’t you TLo?

  • misstressofsylar

    Fuck Idris Elba
    Marry Ewan McGregor
    Kill Jeremy Renner (I generally like him but in these pics, I feel like he’ll kill me first if I don’t do anything)

    • marlie

      I’d go with kill Colin Farrell, because you can’t do anything else with him; you might catch something.

      • misstressofsylar

        My indifference to anything Colin is such that it didn’t even register that he is in this line up!

    • ScarlettHarlot

      F: Captain Bow Tie – I’ve seen The Wire, I know he wears an XL
      M: Colin Farrell – I don’t want to catch anything from him, but since he became sober he seems like a really likable guy, plus I adored him in In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths, Doctor Parnassus, and Fright Night.
      K: Renner – he does nothing for me, and he always looks slightly confused and surprised at his own fame.

  • ChaCha_70

    I usually don’t mind the scruff on Ewan, but this time he looks like he needs to clean it up a bit. Must be the hair/scruff combo. Still, be still my beating heart! And pardon me for looking but is he going commando?

    • ballerinawithagun

      Your screen must be better than mine, you made me look! But why is he still looking so sad?

      • ChaCha_70

        Perhaps it’s wishful thinking on my part (the going commando part, not the sadsies).

  • Ginger

    Colin Farrell always looks like the tweaked-out dogs in cartoons that just got shocked by something electrical. Eesh.

    • 3boysful

      He does! And I generally get a jerk vibe off him but I must say he was alternatively utterly charming and pathetic in Saving Mr Banks.

      • Ginger

        I haven’t seen that yet. I guess I’ll put it on the to-watch list.

        • 3boysful

          If you do, stay for the credits–they run actual vintage footage of the real people during the film process.

      • Goldie

        Ooh, but he’s the farthest from being a jerk. Especially now that he’s sober. He’s sweet to little old ladies and does a lot of fund-raising
        for FAST (his oldest son has Angelman’s). I will admit though, he’s held on to the hoops a little too long.

    • *ZAP* “Ow. That hurt. I think?”

    • decormaven

      Colin Farrell is almost a dead ringer for Major Hoople, sans the pot belly. “Fap!” “Harumph!”

  • I will never get the appeal of Colin Ferrell. Except I would listen to him talk about Liz Taylor because May-December stories are my catnip.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I will always have a tender feeling for Colin for his work in “In Bruges”. What’s this about he and Liz Taylor?

      • quiltrx

        That’s the only tender feeling I have for him…that’s a great movie.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          One of my personal favs, In Bruges-what a cast-Ralph Fiennes, Brendan Gleeson, Farrell, and so many great moments.

      • He met her entourage at the hospital when his son was born and a few days later, he got on orchid from her and that began their friendship. Apparently, they would talk late at night on the phone. I love that.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          That’s quite lovely.

  • mjude

    will always love ewan.

  • Bill Craven

    OMG WHAT’S WITH THE FACIAL HAIR! Caps locked by accident, but I decided it was justified. Ewan almost passes, except for the neck scruff, but the others all decided to do the same weird soul-patch-surrounded-by-goatee ugliness.

    • 3boysful

      You said it. Scruffy facial hair at that. Idris is the only one who looks decently groomed.

  • McGregor: Swoooooon.

  • MilaXX

    I watched the Star Wars marathon this weekend. Ewan can do no wrong on my eyes.
    Colin is not aging well. He’s looking greasy here.
    I don’t know what s going on with Jeremy’s tux. The sleeves look too long, but the jacket does’t look like he can fasten it. What monkey was that suit made for?
    Idris just makes me giggle. I will never look at him in a bow tie the same way again. He darn near crashed twitter.

    • bellafigura1

      Yes, bow tie-gate! What a delicious mystery.

  • sienna elm

    Colin (and his hair) look really surprised to be there!

    • Shawn EH

      He’s the secret weapon of “Saving Mr. Banks.”

  • Trickytrisha

    Ewan looks like he slipped into his tux after a 10 day trek across the desert. Colin’s hair is too close to Woody Woodpecker for comfort. Jeremy always makes me a tad uneasy. Idris makes me a tad uneasy, but in a totally different, delicious way.

    • ballerinawithagun

      I love Ewan, but looking at his nose, he forgot to put on sunscreen before he went hiking in Joshua Tree National Park. Wish I would have run into him. I know he is happily married and has 4(!!!) daughters but I would like to make him laugh.

  • Nicoclaws

    Ok. I admit I never saw the interest of Elba before. Now, when you put him next to those awful douchetrolls. I understand better. (Ewan, I love you, but that hair has to GO.)

  • I think Colin Farrell would be so attractive if he didn’t look drug-addled.

  • @Biting Panda

    Take away the Renner, and this is a nearly perfect post!! Do all of the men look their best? No, not really. But it’s a sampler of perfectly good looking AND accents, which I am a sucker for.

  • kimmeister

    Something is amiss when all the boys get their hem lengths right except for Idris Elba.

  • Rand Ortega

    An Idris Ewan Sandwich. The only item on my Bucket List.

    • @Biting Panda

      Seriously. Could die happy. Blissful, even.

  • boweryboy

    McGregor: That hair is still serving up Lon Chaney wolfman realness.
    Farrell: Could pass for a put together Downey, Jr. On the otherhand, the hoop earrings are douchey to the nth degree.
    Renner: Welcome to the Lazy Lizard Lounge. I’m your waiter and your singer for tonight.
    Elba: Yay! He’s wearing socks and looking good as well.

    • demidaemon

      Those earrings really make the look, in all the wrong ways. Really, Colin? You thought hoop earrings were a good idea?

      • Shawn EH

        If you wear them all the time, why take them out at all? Body art isn’t the same as fashion.

        • demidaemon

          This isn’t body art. This is an accessory. If women can change their earrings on a dime, men can too.

          • Shawn EH

            So are there better choices for him than hoops?

          • demidaemon

            Without a doubt–yes.

          • Shawn EH

            14 karat studs? Dollar signs? Pendants?

          • demidaemon

            Basic studs? Nothing, perchance?

    • jabes

      I definitely see the Farrell/Downey Jr. similarity. And some guys can definitely do hoops (see: Jerry Rice) but these are no good.

    • prettyinmink

      My mind immediately went into a lounge version of “Volare” when I saw Renner’s picture.

  • bellafigura1

    EMcG: I swear, he’s getting younger.
    Farrell: Whatever, I’d go there.
    Renner: Holy cow, where’d the hotness go?
    IE (otherwise known around my house as AIYEEEEE!!): Can do no wrong.

    • Jacob Bowen

      I’d TOTALLY go there.

    • RidgewayGirl

      Yes, this. Remember when Renner was all intense and hot? Now the douchiness has prevailed and I am sad.

      McEwan is phoning it in and is still perfect. (I’ll let him have all the neck scruff he wants.)

      It’s finally time to take out the earrings and lower the hair, Colin.

      I can’t comment on Elba. I’m still recovering from the bow tie comment.

  • Jacob Bowen

    Jeremy Renner is NOT looking good recently. I have been THOROUGHLY disappointed. And Colin, GET RID OF THE EARRINGS! You look douchey.

    • AnneElliot

      My first thought exactly about Colin’s earrings — when is he going to outgrow them?

  • Imasewsure

    They all look awful to me… well, Idris looks ok but nothing more (ignoring the duck feet).
    Ewan…. get a haircut!!

    • Trickytrisha

      But… but…they’re such slender, elegant duck feet.

  • marlie

    Ewan: Looking good.
    Colin: Can’t NOT look like a douche.
    Jeremy: On my Irrational Celebrity Love list, but even I have to admit that he’s veering way into douche territory here.
    Idris: Needs to hem the pants, but still, YUM.

  • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

    Jeremy Renner is standing like a toddler who just did something naughty and is not at all ashamed.

  • greymain

    what is it with Renner???? He always looks like a slightly out of place porn star to me….

  • e jerry powell

    Why does Ewan look so angry?

    • AnneElliot

      He looks very tired. Poor baby, i’d take care of him!

  • crash1212

    Idris Elba FTW. Always and forever.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      You just cannot go wrong with Idris-ever.

  • demidaemon

    Thank god for Idris; everyone else showcased here looks off, rumpled, and perhaps a little high.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      I’m sorry–all four of them look high, but Idris is the only one that looks good high.

  • Send over Idris, leave the white candy behind.

  • butterflysunita

    And it’s not even Sausage Friday. Thank you, TLo.

  • J. Preposterice

    everything seems to be in order here. so i’ll just be in my bunk.

  • somebody blonde

    What utterly boring ties.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    Idris Elba blows the other three out of the water.

  • quiltrx

    Oh, sorry…I dozed off from boredom. But my half-opened eye said it thought Renner had on a cummerbund, and THAT woke me up. Nah, just weird-looking pants. At least it woke me up long enough to see Idris.

  • lillyvonschtupp

    You know the deal Dris: HOT SEX ON A PLATTER

    And add Farrell as desert!!! Has he ever looked that good????


  • ScarlettHarlot

    All of the men except for Idris “The Bow Tie” Elba need to shave. Mr.Elba, you may carry on. Mmmmm.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    I think Colin is getting to the age where he should think about getting rid of the hoops.

    • Shawn EH

      I don’t think there is such an age anymore. Especially when you consider all the aging dudes with tattoos and plugs.

      However, he is leaning mighty heavily on the hair dye lately. Somebody does NOT plan to go gray gracefully!

      • demidaemon

        Just because they don’t conform to the age doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

        • Shawn EH

          But for how much longer?

  • In_Stitches

    Ewan needs to get a haircut, fix his tie length and swap out that jacket for one that fits. He rarely misses the mark so hard, especially when dealing with classic basics.

    Colin from the neck down is pretty fine, but on top…is he trying out for a reboot of the Pirate’s of the Caribbean movie? Too many hilarious affectations, all on top of each other.

    Jeremy…I can’t tell if he’s standing oddly because the jacket doesn’t fit or because he just had a proctology exam.

    Idris, the pant hem doesn’t even bother me. With a fuller leg pant like that…whatever, words aren’t necessary. He’s just foine.

  • traceyishere

    Idris, those shoes are a crime.

  • formerlyAnon

    God bless each and every one who went for identifiably shaped facial hair, rather than artful (term used loosely) stubble.

  • Ma. Gabriella Dutari

    That carefully curated facial hair is not doing Jeremy Renner any favors!! I also feel ambivalent towards his awkward pose.
    As for Colin Farrell, his beard has looked much better, maybe it’s too sparse and his hair too black? I think he looks better when he lets the salt and pepper show.
    Idris looks great but his hem needs tailoring. Ewan also looks great but hair looks a little lame.
