Sorry. That’s about all have at the moment. Feel free to express your own animal sounds, darlings.

Also: we’ll take those gray shoes, thank you very much.

    Oh dear, I seem to have involuntarily licked my computer screen.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      Me too! He ought to come with a warning label.

    • DTLAFamilies

      Okay, who downvoted this comment? A computer repairman?

      • YoungSally

        No, the person who was planning to lick the screen next…but now can’t.

  • Oh he is pretty with a beard! This boy is going to regret 50 Shades so much, I fear. I think my next husband is going to have to rock a blazer. It looks so good and the current one just won’t play along.

    • kimmeister

      Husbands that allow you to play dress up with them are delightful. I just bought mine a gray wool houndstooth sports jacket that has brown elbow patches, and he LOVES it. This same guy was equally gleeful when I bought him Batman-print fleece pajama pants.

      • Lucky! Even when I buy mine something he has specifically asked for he’ll take a year before he wears it. He wore jeans to our wedding.

    • Trent

      Agreed — he looks MUCH better with a beard. Now if he could just do something about the skinny bird legs…

    • jspark

      He won’t regret 50 shades because it is going to be talked about sooooo much. I love his stern face in this, but my favorite picture is the one where he’s standing on the pier saying “Where’s my g-damn WATER TAXI!” TLo needs to start having jamie dornan caption it contests.

  • @Biting Panda

    Thoughts in no important order.

    Why all the similar profile poses?
    Why is he shot from so far away?
    Why is so handsome yet so boring?
    Why have I not noticed how much he resembles Henry Cavill?

    • BECAUSE Henry Cavill is to boring to remember unless he is right in front of you.

      • Imasewsure

        Where else would I want Henry Cavill… welll I can think of one more place but I’m too ladylike to mention… 🙂

      • gabbilevy

        Dunno, I found Henry Cavill so hot it took me right out of the movie. Maybe that says more about Man of Steel than it does about Henry, but STILL.

    • Glam Dixie

      Maybe he just looks better the farther away you get? I still see Ryan Seacrest with facial hair, but I do see a little Henry now that you mention it.
      ETA: Maybe the reason he is so boring is because he is so derivative of so many other (more handsome) guys.

    • random_poster

      Handsome but boring…yeah, that definitely came up for me here. He looks bored too, so it’s not just us.

    • boweryboy

      All my thoughts as well except for the last one because I don’t know who Henry Cavill is.

      • Danielle

        From Man of Steel!

        • boweryboy

          I’ll probably sound like a pop culture luddite, but is that tv show or a movie? I know it’s referencing Superman but my knowledge ends there.

          • Danielle

            It’s a movie that came out in 2013. A Superman origin story reboot. It also has Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon, Amy Adams and Diane Lane. Also, my daddy bear Christopher Meloni.

          • Imasewsure

            Didn’t realize it was a Meloni/Cavill thing… guess I need to invest $4.99 and rent the damn thing this weekend. Thanks for the tip… you have good taste!

          • Ana

            If you want to see Cavill, see The Tudors and enjoy!

          • KinoEye

            What Danielle said, although I’ll add that I thought it was terrible. Now, when I saw it, I was influenced by those lovely monthly hormones, but I’m sure I’d still think it was awful now. In the name of “rescuing” the city, Superman pretty much destroys it. Tons of buildings reduced to rubble. I’m not a huge fan of comic book movies, but I know enough to know Superman’s worst fear is taking a human life. Didn’t jive with the canon at all. And Michael Shannon, who I normally love, was laughable as the villain. He’s supposed to be invincible, but Superman kills him by snapping his neck? UGH. You didn’t miss anything, Bowery.

      • kimmeister

        There were tons of posts on this site featuring him just a few months ago! Do a search. Some of them are drool worthy.

        • boweryboy

          Since I read each and every post, he must not have moved my pants enough to remember him. I’ll go back and double check.

    • MarieLD

      He’s tres boring. I know I’m in the minority, but his acting is terribly wooden/stiff (pick your own double-entendre).

    • flowersITW

      I’m with you totally. It’s beginning to seem as though he may kill his career with modelling shoot overexposure before Fifty Shades does for his “The Fall” promise as an actor. It’s fine if it’s all slow release but with recent splurge the one model – face and the one acting- face range is becoming a bit obvious. He is a good looking guy but I’m fast losing interest the more I’m media hyped to try and find him interesting. He’s now all a bit model “meh” really.

    • fursa_saida

      I was thinking “Henry Cavill knockoff” the entire time I was scrolling through. And I don’t even like Cavill that much (he’s boring as hell and I disliked MoS), but his face is definitely a level or two of “otherworldly perfection” above this dude.

    • CatherineRhodes

      It’s true about handsome yet boring. He’s really good looking but seems to have no spark of charisma.

  • deelup

    And he can have some breast… (Sorry, I had to post this)

  • deelup

    Also, this is reminding me of Jude Law in The Talented Mr. Ripley who I always loved.

  • Glam Dixie

    Rawr! This guy looks better with some facial hair.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Oh shit, it actually *is* Friday. I had the flu then it couldn’t make up its mind then it decided on nasty head cold. I’ve fallen out of time. I also forgot to do a couple of things this week.

    As TLO multi-hyphenate themselves, they really need to consider a to-do app.

    • Suzanne Moore

      Ooh, he looks good here. He really creeped me out in “The Fall”. I hope for the best for his acting career. Course he’s a pro model, and he can always fall back on that.
      I had the flu too and the damn cough-cough has continued now for 21 days, moving up and down my gullet and driving me (and my hubby) bonkers. I couldn’t remember what day it was when I woke up this morning. But with these pix ( along with Beckham’s), it’s got to be Sausage Friday. Feel better soon!

      • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

        Oh no that sounds terrible! I am so sorry! I am still serving up Brenda Vaccaro realness on the phone, but I am (hopefully) getting better. Celestial Seasonings tea is a lifesaver for me.

        Get well — every time a Bitter Kitten gets sick, Satan sews another pair of culottes.

        • demidaemon

          OH NO!

  • nycfan

    I’ll take everything in the photo with the gray shoes, in fact.

  • Karen Belgrad

    Is he allergic to socks?

    • MilaXX

      I hate socks. I only wear them if there’s snow on the ground so shoes with out socks doesn’t bother me.

      • Evan

        Yeah, but then aren’t your feet more likely to get fungus and your shoes and feet more likely to smell bad? Serious question here from a guy who’s never understood the trend of no socks. I think a lot of shoes (esp. ones you wear in the summer) look better without socks, but I’ve always been told that you shouldn’t go sans socks for the reasons above.

        • MilaXX

          Never had foot fungus. I think your feet (universal you so maybe just me) only sweat in cheap non breathable materials. My feet don’t sweat. I’ve only had stinky shoes in a pair of overworked sneakers and that was fixed with a liberal dosing of Lysol and regular dusting a of baby powder after wearing. I”ll wear sock or hose for a dressy event, but day to day? I’m sock less

          • Evan

            Thanks for this answer! I guess I’ll have to try going sans socks this summer haha

          • MilaXX

            clean, dry feet and breathable material and you should be fine.

          • demidaemon

            I would do that if the floors in my house weren’t so damn cold. Going sockless is like asking for hypothermia.

          • MilaXX

            I have kitty cat slippers for inside the house

          • demidaemon

            AHA! Makes sense. I don’t know. For some reason, I’ve never been big on slippers.

          • MilaXX

            I prefer the no skid bottom of a slipper to socks. I’m kinda clumsy.

  • sagecreek

    Pretty! I like thighs.

  • MilaXX

    This is a nice photoshoot. It’s funny, I thought he was cute on Once Upon a Time and now whenever I see him he either looks bland and boring or really cute like here.
    Still not going to see that stupid movie though.

    • KinoEye

      “That stupid movie.” That will probably be a euphemism for how bad it truly is. Having scanned through the first book out of sheer morbid curiosity, I can safely say the movie will likely be one of the worst in this fairly young decade. Sigh.

      • Danielle

        Calling it “That Stupid Movie” is probably being really nice. I could think of a few more hateful monikers.

  • homofascist

    Oh good, then that leaves the blue shoes for me!

  • JauntyJohn

    Prime example of BWAB: Better With A Beard.
    Nice clothes, too.

  • Betsy

    Honestly, I don’t even care what he’s wearing. Actually, maybe he shouldn’t be wearing anything.

  • Youbeguilemenot

    Hubba hubba.

  • Anna

    “Baby, let’s cruise away from here…”

  • ShaoLinKitten

    In all pictures except the last one, he has a look on his face that says, “I’m going to lure you to somewhere quiet and then cut you into little pieces.”

  • Mismarker

    I’m just gonna take this downtown by asking Jamie to go glass blowing with me.

  • Molly

    oh, Venice. My favorite city in the world, sigh. I love the pics on the Runabout.

  • Jacob Bowen

    I LOVE a man with great thighs and in white pants…especially near the water. Here’s to hoping they get a bit wet, and that there’s nothing underneath.

    • Evan

      Ooh… You’re naughty 😉

      • Jacob Bowen

        What can I say? Sausage Fridays bring out my best thoughts…

  • I’d like one serving of Jamie Dornan in a gondola, please – James Wolk can be the gondolier.

  • jw_ny

    well…his thighs in the 1st pic did capture my attention, as well did the scenic Venice pics…but that’s about it.

  • yethica

    I have no desire to see 50 shades, but damn if he isn’t a tall drink of water….

  • kimmeister

    Ick I do not like those black shoes at all. They look like corrective orthopedic footwear.

  • jen

    Mmm hmm. Woof sounds about right.

  • Imasewsure

    He wears the clothes well but he’s a terrible model

  • sleepycat

    now if only I could look that way, I wouldn’t have as much trouble dating. Yes, I know I am breaking the TLo Be Me or Do Me beauty rule. Although I can’t imagine having much of an interesting life being that pretty. *le sigh*

  • “Thigh high” has an all new meaning now.

  • filmcricket

    He doesn’t do anything for me, but the grey shoes, I agree, are fabulous.

  • Janet B

    Lovely thighs and a beautiful boat

  • KT

    Yeah he’s pretty cute, but he looks so stiff (and not in the way I would prefer). Same expression in every shot, yawn.

  • cassandu

    all i can see is michael fassbender’s little brother!

  • Ginger_Strings

    Damn, I understand the Victorian thing about ankles now. I mean, in the last pic? That is a sexy ankle.

  • OhSheila

    The beard. It’s just….It’s amazing how a beard can do SO MUCH for an already pretty face.

  • kt

    He always looks like a sociopath to me. And this is really the perfect setting, has everyone seen The Tourist? He could be the sinister version of Depp’s character…

  • Aidan B

    Good God.

  • CatherineRhodes

    When are they releasing the next season of The Fall?

  • demidaemon

    Cute. Wish that he wasn’t always in the same position. Thighs must be admired from a variety of angles, you know.

  • I’ll take that beautiful boat. And the man can handle the varnishing for me, while shirtless preferably.

  • ScarlettHarlot

    Hmm, I don’t usually go for the no socks with a suit look, but somehow this is working for me!

  • MannahattaMamma

    Fifty Shades of Gray Shoes. Shoes: beautiful, sexy. Man: pretty dull

  • Shawn EH

    Epitome of beautiful styling meets beautiful man.

  • fooepi

    He’s facing the same way in all of them.

  • papillon

    I have no idea who he is but those shots of Venice are gorgeous!
