    Which Culkin boy is this, again?

    • Scimommy

      OMFG, I can’t stop laughing.

  • Golfkat

    His hairline shaving is some serious actor sacrifice. That as to suck growing out 😛 There’s no way it’s not going to look awkward.

    • Glam Dixie

      If he got a buzz cut he could pull it off, but with that particular do, it’s definitely going to suck and be awkward for quite a while. I think I’d get the buzz cut rather than deal with it.

      • Jacqueline Wessel

        Oh, I think he has a buzz already.

        • MartyBellerMask

          You win!

      • Golfkat

        Me too! He might do it yet. I’m guessing they still have the other half of the final season to shoot, so he’s keeping the long hair until then. It would seem logical to go for the buzz cut afterwards. It seems like it’s probably the best way to go to be honest.

      • He could do a disconnected fade and pull that top into a pompadour and it would have style without being MadMen or making him look homeless. And he wouldn’t get mistaken for a McCulkin as mentioned above-

    • Kent Roby

      two words: jeweled turban.

  • @Biting Panda

    Is he still engaged to Rory Gilmore? Hope that hair situation is fixed in time for the big day.

  • Glam Dixie

    He kind of looks like he should be panhandling. Give him a guitar.

    • Spicytomato1

      Actually I was thinking he looks like he might not believe in deodorant, which is sort of in the same vein. He delights me so much as Pete Campbell, though, that I’m willing to give him a pass.

  • nannypoo

    He looks like a Dickens character.

  • MilaXX

    Hate the facial hair, and the shirt. Like the jacket and the shoes. Overall it just looks sloppy.

  • Monabel

    Stand up straight, young man.

  • NMMagpie

    Looks like a college student on his first interview. Ever.

  • BlairBear

    You aren’t going to include the picture of him and his accessory John Hamm? Disappointed. like the leather collar and color of the jacket dont like the three buttons or the fit ./proportions or the distressed shoes.

  • jw_ny

    in desperate need of a makeover.

  • Lilah

    Wow. I actually find him attractive in those pictures. Maybe because he is looking so un-Pete-like.

    • not_Bridget

      Also un-Conner-like. (For those of us with long memories.)

    • Wendi126

      I am totally with you. I find him completely unattractive as Pete and really kind of hot here. Go Rory

    • SportifLateBoomer

      Hell yes! I think he looks completely adorable. And he’s not even my type. As Pete Campbell, he’s got negative sex appeal. I dig the scruff and the slight stoner vibe. Pretty eyes.

  • Shawn EH

    He looks hipstery without trying too hard, it’s so nice to see a mellow Pete.

  • Therese Bohn

    Yeah, he looks sloppy and a little homeless here, but I love ‘im. Note the very short crew-cut growing in where it was shaved for MM. I bet he’ll have to have it shaved again soon to film the final seven. Vi-nee, Vi-nee, Vi-nee!

  • seelebrennt

    jesus, take a shower and comb your hair, at the very least.

    • Danielle

      He doesn’t have a toilet in his house, do you really think he has a shower and a comb?

  • Sarah

    He’s a cute guy, but he should think about doing something else with his hair.

  • Mismarker

    So much more attractive when out of Pete Campbell drag. Even with the stubble hairline.

  • MzzPants

    He gives the appearance of having tried…for him.

  • Violina23

    Go home, Connor, you’re drunk

  • I love that this is exactly how I would picture Peter Campbell looking if he had a Bobby Darrin turn later in his life.

  • lobsterlen

    He is trying hard to not look like Pete Campbell.

  • MartyBellerMask

    Now this is some near-impressive lack of effort. Literally no effort put in except the smile. He’s not even standing upright.

  • KT

    Oh my god, someone’s been hanging out with John Travolta nooooooooooooooooo. Please tell me this is for the purpose of making Pete Campbell look even sleazier. It’s really too bad because he looks kind of dirty hot otherwise. Fix that hair ASAP dude.

    • If I recall correctly he shaves his hairline for his role as Pete. In that regard, I’ll give him a pass for his hair growing back wonky.

      • KT

        Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Okay well if that’s the case – crisis averted. He still needs to fix that situation though. Why not buzz it so that it’s all one length?

        • oldscrumby

          Because I think they might still be filming? in which case he still needs the longer hair in the back. His options are either continue the terrible receding hairline off the set, headband made of stubble, or a hat. Not sure why he refrains from the latter option.

          • KT

            Yes, a hat deployment is definitely in order. Or a turban. Hell, a damn doo-rag is better than this shit.

  • Sugarbeetle

    I’ll give him a pass on the hair. Pete’s supposed to have a combover, and his hairstyle reflects this. If he buzzed it all off, he’d lose the “combover” part.

  • siriuslover

    It’s a testament to his acting chops that I find him so vile at Pete Campbell. Looking at him here, I notice how kind his eyes are.

    • Spicytomato1

      Yes. I think he just knocks it out of the park as Pete every single time. And yet I feel he’s often somewhat overlooked, probably because everyone in that cast is so strong.

  • Gatto Nero

    He just honestly doesn’t care about these things (public appearances). In stark contrast to the buttoned-up Campbell.
    And I think that’s fine.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    He looks baked as hell.

  • ballerinawithagun

    I love his eyes!

  • demidaemon

    WTH is that hair? He looks like Hugh Hefner at age 30. NO.

    • Gatto Nero

      Growing out the shaved hairline for his role.

      • demidaemon

        True, but it could still look better than this. And the second comment was the overall effect of the clothes and hair, not just the hair.

  • Ah…I see he’s growing his Pete Campbell hairline.

    • Pennymac

      First thing I noticed. Thats some commitment to a role,right there.

  • PastryGoddess

    It feels like Paleyfest has been going on for the past month

  • joything

    Several really sweet young guys at my food co-op look exactly like this. Yum, Come to Auntie, she’s got cookies and a bong.

  • Pennymac

    Oh, man. Non-Pete Vincent has some sexy, sparkly eyes, doesn’t he?

  • Imasewsure

    Kind of a cross between Rasputin and Fess Parker… but I like it… he looks cute

  • Qitkat

    He looks 10 years younger than Pete Campbell!

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    UNF. I’ll be in my bunk.

    The amount of lust I feel for him is wrong. Just wrong.

  • Miss wks

    Stoner chic…

  • MK03

    I’m just waiting for the day he shows up to one of these in a t-shirt that says “I’M NOT PETE TRALALALALALA”

    • Haha I caught the tail end of this one and I loved that, when someone asked whether they ever had dreams about their characters, he said “I dreamt Pete Campbell was staring at me through the window” because I COULD SEE IT. I loled.

  • Jacob Bowen

    He looks like a not-so-cute Zach Braff.

  • Looks like he could use some Visine and a double espresso.

  • Wink

    He’s giving off a Jack Nicholson (in The Shining) kinda vibe. You know… the guy who’s smiling right before he tries to kill you! But I do like his jacket.

  • lillyvonschtupp

    Oh, for Christ’s sake…

  • Hmm.. the jacket is going horse riding, the pants and shoes are going to the nearest university professors office. 🙂

  • nycfan

    Haircut seems to be compensating for where they shaved his head to give him a receding hairline, I can see how that might be awkward.

  • decormaven

    He’s angling for a part in a university setting. He’ll play the scholarly, stoned part.

  • Crystal


    I hate Pete Campbell so so much. I can’t get over it.
