These pictures make us wish it was spring and we could put on some fabulous lightweight sweater and kickass suede shoes that won’t get ruined because we are living in THE FREAKING SLUSH AGE HERE.


Let’s all focus on Michael B.’s smile and his super cute and covetable outfit, shall we? Also: Rome. Yes, let’s all pretend we’re there right now.  In fabulous lightweight sweaters.

    Michael B. continually shows that the best accessory to any outfit is a great smile.

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      Well, his smile, at least.

    • jspark

      I would Tinder that.

    • Lucía Gavello

      He’s so huggable… not that I don’t have other things in mind.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      …and the best accessories to a great smile are great dimples! So kissable!

  • He’s about as perfect as one person can be.

    • Kristin McNamara

      I’m reminded of the classic Rachel Green line: “Mmm… I could just spread him on a cracker.”

  • He looks so good. I like that he’s shelling out different poses. And all of the poses look natural.

    *le sigh*

    • Rhonda Shore

      Yes, it’s all so deliciously breezy.

  • Perfectly appropriate. Jealous of him being in Rome.

  • Sobaika

    *swoon* Happy Friday, all.

    • OMG. Could he be any more perfect than he is in these pictures?

      • Sarah

        He’s like a poster boy for unaffected handsome fellows with nice outfits.

  • Jecca2244

    love love love. although i don’t like the earrings, but have never been one for earrings on guys.

    • Sophie

      Same here, but his smile is usually so bright I don’t even see them. (Now you reminded me of them…)

  • CB

    He’s adorable and I love his outfit, but these pictures are cracking me up for some reason. GLAMOUR SHOTS!!!

    • shirab

      I was thinking “senior portrait session,” but we’re on the same page. The hand-under-chin and hand-casually-in-pocket poses remind me of my nephew in Ohio’s graduation announcements. No oversized Jostens ring, more’s the pity. MBJ is painfully cute, though.

    • kimmeister

      These are looking like a slightly cheese magazine ad that would still succeed in making me want to run out and buy clothes for the hubby.

  • PastryGoddess

    I’m just going to take this picture and go off into a corner for a few moments.

  • @Biting Panda

    So. Stinkin’. Cute.

  • Anna

    OMG, imagining myself on a Roman Holiday with Michael B. I have a fabulous montage in my head right now of the two of us touring the eternal city on a Vespa. With The Cure’s “Friday, I’m in Love,” as the soundtrack.

    • @Biting Panda

      ^Read this as Close To Me played on my Pandora^

      I hate remakes, but he is just earnest enough to pull off a new Roman Holiday.

      • Anna

        I’d be so into that. With Lupita as the Audrey Hepburn character.

        • AmeliaEve

          Why not let Michael play the Audrey Hepburn character? I volunteer as tribute to play the jaded journalist.

          • Yes yes yes! If remaking, switch the roles!

          • fursa_saida

            I am intrigued by your ideas and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

          • MAKE. THIS. HAPPEN.

          • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

            You find the backers my dear, and I will adapt the script for you at standard rate and points.

          • Darren Nesbitt

            Point us to you Kickstater. Let us make this so!

      • Sobaika

        Speaking of, anyone else hate that weird cybotronic Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday inspired Dove ad??

        • marlie

          OMG. Hate it. HATE.

        • MilaXX

          with the fury of a thousand burning suns

        • Denise Alden

          So much hate. And I can’t even articulate why.

      • Loramir

        I dunno, I don’t think Gregory Peck (*insert dreamy sigh here*) was particularly earnest – rather cynical, in fact, at least for the first half. Mr. Jordan looks almost too earnest and sincere (that smile!) to try and con an errant princess for a story. Mind you, I’ve never seen him act, so he might be able to pull it off. I could definitely imagine him on the idyllic Vespa-riding, dancing-on-barges part of it, though.

        He’s not my type at all but he makes me smile every time I see him because he looks so relaxed and happy (and usually fabulous too).

        • editrixie

          He could pull it off. He’s an amazingly talented young man.

    • KinoEye

      That’s the best idea I’ve heard all day. I’ve been loving that song lately, and it so works as the backdrop to a romantic, Rome montage.

      • Anna

        My original pick was “Mint Car,” (My favourite Cure song and I was listening on my way to work this morning. The lyrics are so dreamy, they just get me every time.), but Happy/Sausage Friday and all that.

  • NinjaCate

    I need to lick every part of him. Yum.

  • Pennymac

    Just wonderful. Sigh….

  • Susan

    yes, yes, yes

  • SugarSnap108

    Never less than adorable. He so brings out the giddy teenage fangirl in me.

  • Ginger

    He’s flat-out precious. I want to give him a hug.

  • marlie

    I don’t particularly like the sweater, but MBJ looks so nicely put together, and I LURVE the shoes. Swoon.

  • kmk05

    He is so adorably hot. I mean, I want to listen to him and then ravish him soundly.

  • Capt. Renault

    Lookin’ good, Reggie.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    I want him as a son-in-law. He’s adorable.

  • BLauD

    He’s is just all kinds of adorable. That smile is absolutely the best accessory.

  • ojosazules

    What a beauty. Gorgeous.

  • MilaXX

    *fans self*

  • Nancer


  • barbarienne

    A fantastic start to the manly ritual of Friday. He really is swoon-worthy.

  • Danielle

    God I love him.

  • LJCdoc


  • Jessica Freeman

    Hot damn. I’m thinking all the dirty thoughts.

  • mjude

    so damn adorable!

  • Sometimes I wonder if I just adore him because I have a giant, warm, fuzzy place in my heart reserved for anyone who’s ever had anything to do with FNL.

    Then I realize, no, I just adore him because he’s adorable.

  • Alyssa

    Mmmmmmm, yes. Swooning now.

  • Constant Reader

    I will happily join you in the fantasy that we are all having a fabulous time in Rome while wearing our lightweight sweaters and hanging out with Michael B. Jordan. He’s definitely smiling directly at me [IN MY MIND].

    • demidaemon

      Hey, I thought it was me he was smiling at!

  • Yolanda13

    Well he is just adorable in his lightweight sweater. And oh how I wish I was in Rome. *sigh*

  • I know! I can’t wait to get back to wearing my fun shoes too.

    But wow, these are really nice pictures. Sweaters: clingy! A good addition to Sausage Friday.

  • fursa_saida

    No. NO. JE REFUSE. This is too much. I realized about halfway through the pictures that my face was doing some sort of horrible cross between a loony grin and an anguished grimace. I had plans for the next hour and now I’m going to have to sit here and recover. Disaster.

  • ryenerman

    Frankly, it’s reaching the point where I’m worried because I have loved him since The Wire and sooner or later he’s going to make some kind of misstep and it’s going to disappoint me so much I’m not sure I can take it. I never want to find out he’s actually an asshole, my heart might break.

    • marlie

      He doesn’t strike me as the type to have a huge, disastrous misstep. He – or his handlers – have maintained a pretty clean-cut, boy-next-door persona, and I think he’d have to really go off the rails to mess up that badly. Sort of like Lupita, or even JLaw; I just don’t see any crazy scandals in their futures.

  • stubbornthoughts

    He’s so goddamn cute. I hope he’s around for a long time.

  • KinoEye

    Can I have him? And steal the sweater for my own purposes (SO cute)? After we spend an afternoon of delight in a Rome hotel? I’d never ask for anything ever again.

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    Soooo Pretty………

  • Dandesun

    Johnny Storm can BRING IT!!!

  • decormaven

    Italian Sausage Friday!!! [claps with glee]

  • Kathy

    He looks sooooooo young, and I always feel like a dirty old woman when I look at pics of him because: HOT!

  • Daktari100

    No wonder I’m gay.

  • julnyes

    He looks so sweet and like he gives good hugs.

    • amaranth16

      Hah, I said the same thing without having seen your comment!

  • heartbot

    Every time I see him, I start smiling and feeling all bashful, like I’m in the cafeteria in the 7th grade and my crush is sitting at the table next to mine.

  • kategs

    that man is just stunning.

  • ninamadeleine

    Holy… smile. Yes. That

  • SistaT

    SUCH a good-looking man. My Lord.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Adorable. Thank you, TLo.

  • paginatrix

    It’s funny to see the comments (above) veer off into a remake of “Roman Holiday,” because the first thing I though when I saw these was, “Audry Hepburn in Roman Holiday!” And then I thought, “No way. People will think that’s too weird.” But with that fresh beautiful smile and face of his, what else can you think?

  • Imasewsure

    Why do I feel the urge to fix this kid up with one of my friends (when I have no 20 year old friends and also he doesn’t need the help)???
    ‘Cause he’s that cute, that’s why…

    • formerlyAnon

      It has crossed my mind that if my daughter brought him home I’d be worried sick about hidden flaws since there don’t seem to be any on display.

  • demidaemon

    Yes to this a thousand times.

  • Sophia Finfer

    he is adorable sexy perfection.

  • Makes me wish I were young. oh my Michael B….

  • jw_ny

    He’s such a cutie, and the sweater colors look good on him. On me, I’d look naked with a horrible rash. Not fair!

    Love the blue shoes though…them I could pull off. (oh…now I’m envisioning pulling things off MBJ…whoa!) 😉

  • MannahattaMamma

    Rome kicks ass. Those shoes come in a close second. That sweater looks like the one worn my boyfriend back when Reagan was in office. That is NOT a good thing (not the sweater, not Reagan, and not the boyfriend come to think of it).

  • Perigee

    Did not know that he could look as good cazh as he does be-suited. Both cleans-up and tones-down so very nicely.

  • Qitkat

    This is Rome, in March? Ima jealous. He could date my daughter if I had one 😉

  • Susan Velazquez

    michael b jordan is too cute to function

  • Anna

    LOL, yes maybe it could be a future cash cow for me a la E.L. James.

  • formerlyAnon

    Sweater? Yeah, well, I guess there was something in that picture besides his fabulous smile. Probably.

  • Trickytrisha

    Good lord, I want to adopt him (or something).

  • Candigirl1968

    Someone please give this guy and ad campaign where smiles are mandatory, not optional.

  • B_C_J

    Handsome man in an utterly forgettable outfit.

  • JynxTheCat

    I bet that sweater smells divine. Boyfriend borrowed sweater. Man is he a dish?

  • unbornfawn

    Wear your lightweight sweaters and suede shoes when you come to SF on your book tour!

  • Eclectic Mayhem


  • Oh, haaaaaai.

  • St. Ace

    My boyfriend has the (almost exact) same shoes. I helped picked them out. I feel really good about it. I was also solicited by another man in the DSW that same day who was looking for shoes to wear to a wedding. I feel ridiculously good.

  • NBG

    Cuter than a basket of newborn puppies. I have a strong desire to pet him, especially in that sweater.

  • amaranth16

    I bet he gives good hugs.

  • kyrklin

    he is so cute
