James Marsden on the Beach in Hawaii

Posted on June 13, 2014

Look, we warned you it was going to be this kind of day, didn’t we? We’re on a train to Fire Island, for God’s sake. What did you expect us to post?

But really, are you complaining?

This son of a bitch is 40 years old. Boys? Let’s all hate him.

Oh, James. We could never stay mad at you. Also, that hem needs 4 inches chopped off. See? Style critique!

    What, what, whaaaat? You act like we’re mad at you or something! Uncles, nothing could be farther from the truth! If your train to the beach inspires you to post picture after picture of beautiful shirtless men, then have at it!

    • decormaven

      Man candy. Who is going to complain?

      • AnneElliot

        I’d like a shot of him with Guy Pearce (shirtless, please). I think they could play brothers.

  • sienna elm

    The day started well, and is just getting better. If the posts continue to get better at this rate I may have to leave work early!!

  • shirab

    So glad he didn’t go the low-budget tattoo route many BK’s noted that Ryan P. seems to have taken. Why deflect our attention from what is truly important?

  • macwell

    Wow. Just wow. 🙂

  • Shawn EH

    Make it 14 inches and you’ve got a deal! That Liz Lemon is one lucky lady!

    • FibonacciSequins

      I love that Liz Lemon ended up with him.

      • Shawn EH

        Tina Fey is one smart cookie.

    • TropiCarla

      Agree … My kingdom for a pair of old-fashioned Speedos! 😉

      • 3boysful

        Ugh. I am still traumatized by the German guy who wore a white Speedo to our lifesaving certification class 30 years ago!

      • AnaRoW

        Uh uh, I hate Speedos. They always look vulgar and tacky to me. Even if the guy in them is fit. I’m so glad that era seems to be over.

        • demidaemon

          I don’t mind them on competitive swimmers. (Actually, I quite like the eye candy). But, in the real world, it’s always the guy who you don’t want to see in Speedos who wears them regularly.

        • TropiCarla

          Meanwhile, I hate that all the boys are wearing culottes to the beach now. They look ridiculous flapping about in the breeze and even more so when waterlogged. Bring back the thighs I say. Women’s fashion keeps getting more naked/body-conscious, and men keep getting more covered up. :-/

  • @Biting Panda

    Yeah. Let’s hate him. Let’s hate him allllll night long. And twice tomorrow.

    • Raspberry2012

      Let’s hate him as hard as we can, shower, and then hate him again if he’s not too tired.

      • Anna

        I assumed there would be hating in the shower as well.

        • Raspberry2012

          That goes without saying!

          • Anna

            Let’s just hate him until we can’t come down (we’ll never come down).

      • @Biting Panda

        We should hate him IN the shower because I love a good hate shower.

      • ^^^ THIS. My sentiments exactly, @Raspberry2012. (Fanning myself.)

    • Anna

      All Night Long with James Marsden. Mary Jane Girls style.

      • Sarah

        I don’t feel him, but I do love me a good MJ Girls reference. *Listening in cubicle with earphones now*

        • Anna

          I would too, but just thinking of it plus these pics might lead me to take the afternoon off from work due to a “fever.”

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      I’d like him to remove his clothes and sunscreen so I can get a clear idea of exactly how to hate him.

    • marlie

      Dirty, filthy minds, all of you. 😉

      • Raspberry2012

        Oh, you LOVE it, baby!

        • marlie

          Oh of course. Those with the dirty minds are always the most fun to hang out with!

          • Anna

            I work in a pretty conservative office and I’d probably be sent to HR on a regular basis if my co-workers really knew what my sense of humour was like ;-). So me visiting T-Lo is *GOOD* for my professionalism!

          • demidaemon

            This should be used in their promotional materials!

  • PinkyK

    Hubba! Hubba!

  • Anna

    James! The sunscreen bottle says re-apply after swimming and/or perspiring, here, let me help!

  • Danielle

    I’ll be in my bunk.

  • Uncles, is it your plan to dead us all by collective failure to breathe while you are on the way to Fire Island? 🙂

    If yes, your plan is partly working. 🙂 But to really dead us, you’re going to have to give us naked something and who can fashion critique naked? There isn’t much you can – legally – lop four inches off when man is naked.. unless he be wearing a wig or long hair.

    Please enjoy your trip, we certainly are! THANK YOU!

    • Trent

      Same, and yet I don’t understand why I’m feeling this way. Marsden was always WAY too pretty for my taste (though perfect for Prince Charming). And he’s still pretty, but I’m practically licking my iPad screen. Maybe it’s the scruff? The blessedly unwaxed body? Whatever it is, it’s working for me here…

      • FibonacciSequins

        Same here! Maybe it’s his scruff, or that he looks slightly less physically perfect than he did when he was younger. I’m not sure what it is either, but it makes him yummy.

  • Heather


  • I’ve had a soft spot for him for years. Delicious.

    • MaggieMae

      That’s what she said!

  • Shelby

    I think this is my favorite TLo day this month….


  • Alison – NYC Recessionista

    Oh, the things I would do to that man …

  • Karen Belgrad

    I feel like today’s posts have a menu feel to them. So… any chance of finding some Taye Diggs or Eric Dane for dessert?

    • marlie

      Or some Idris. These pages have been bereft of him for a while…

  • Noah

    Jesus, you weren’t kidding about today. NOT THAT I’M COMPLAINING…

  • Alyssa_T_Robot

    i was right all along. james marsden is exceptionally gifted.

  • MilaXX

    no complaints from me. Post away!

  • PastryGoddess

    You guys should go to Fire Island more often. In fact I’m sure the BK would be willing set up a collection to fund monthly trips during the summer.

    All in favor say AYE!

    • @Biting Panda


    • @Biting Panda

      I’m seriously pondering which child I could sell, in order to fund myself a spontaneous beach get away. I suddenly *need* to feel the sand on my back. Er…toes.

  • RescueMe23

    Are you taking requests??

  • AlexisPayne

    Mmmm. Yes, more of this please!

    Well done TLo, you’re brightening what promises to be a dull day.

  • Sherry N. Sutton

    Every Friday should be shirtless guys on a beach Friday.

  • cat772

    Um, four inches? How about let’s take off about 18 inches of those trunks?

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Very nice, thank you. So Friday’s looking pretty good so far. And I would take at least 10 inches off those shorts.

  • Such prudish American standards for men’s swimwear.

  • Nicoclaws

    I never figured he was so buff. Another reason to love him !

  • Call me Bee

    Oh you guys….

  • Mona_Visa


  • Ashley Ellen Wilson

    oooh ooooh ooohhhhh…….there’s them animal noises again

  • majorbedhead

    Losing. ability. to speak. Words. Man. Yum. *droooooooooooooool*

  • Jessica Freeman

    Thank you Jesus, Amen.

  • traceyishere

    Someone missed Legs day

    • ccinnc

      Eh, could be worse. Some guys ignore them completely. Ryan Philippe clearly does not. His are perfection.

  • Anna

    And not a bad tat in sight. Thank. God.

  • BazoDee

    He’s 40?? Daymn!!! There’s ally to like but his arms are my favorite!

  • vahtel

    Okay, where do I line up to get one of those?

  • Cheryl

    Now this is an appropriate short wearing venue. Or I guess they are swimming trunks, seriously not sure how to tell the difference. But good on him for wearing them at the beach, and not in the city.

  • Raspberry2012

    WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU GIVE ME A GIANT SPREADSHEET PROJECT TO WORK ON NOW, BOSS? IT’S SAUSAGE FRIDAY!! (*Bursts into hateful tears and runs out of the TLo Lounge*)

  • I love a good theme.
    Also, James looks bigger half-naked than he does dressed, which I find interesting. And aesthetically pleasing.

  • Imasewsure

    Love that he has goggles which means he was actually swimming!! Great Sausage Friday!!

    • Kitten Mittons

      I know, I do too. I bet he looks adorable in them too.

      Back to the rest of the picture, though….

      • Shawn EH

        Well, I mean, he is Cyclops, after all.

        • Kitten Mittons

          Ha! You’re absolutely right. Well played.

  • ashtangajunkie

    TLo, I have never loved you the way I do right now. Bless your beautiful hearts.

  • MissusBee

    Thanks Uncles! Thanks James Marden! Spending all that time in the gym to make my life better. He’s a humanitarian basically.

  • No complaints.

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    I wish short, tighter suits would come back into fashion.

  • HobbitGirl


  • Edward Thomas-Herrera

    You may be on the train to Fire Island, but I have to work today. And how am I supposed to concentrate on my job with an erection?

  • LadyVimes

    He’s 40?! Sweet mercy.

  • MaggieMae

    40? Hate him. Also hate him for wearing those trunks which hide his thighs.

  • marlie

    THIS is hot. Makes me want to pack up and go to the beach, ASAP. ROWR.

  • I kinda want Our Uncles to go to Fire Island every weekend if this is the eye candy they consequently grant us!

  • ShaoLinKitten

    The only way this could be better is if I could get a glimpse of thigh. More exposed thighs on hot men, please.

  • Uncle Spike

    Board shorts of all sorts need to end. As do cargo shorts and manpris. I’ve seen shorter shorts hitting the runways, and I’ve heard about them coming back. But damn the fashion gods of landlocked states…I’ve yet to see ANY evidence of this trend! Please, please, bring shorter shorts back! My muscle-bound Northern European thighs are dying for some sun!

    Oh…wait. Yes. James is hot. And just one year older than me. Bitch. (Said lovingly, of course.)

  • dmkava

    That’s not really that hard for a 40 year old to pull off, especially if you’ve been exercising faithfully your whole life

    • Shawn EH

      But … well … if you haven’t been ……..

      • dmkava

        it’s never too late to start!

  • Imma Mäder

    This is the best sausage friday ever Uncles! keep ’em coming!

  • unbornfawn

    Handsome shirtless men all over the place. Best sausage Friday ever!

  • melanie0866

    You’re so good to us. Have a wonderful time at the beach. xoxoxo

  • Kate4queen

    You all know I live in Hawaii, right? 🙂

  • Bad Idea Jeans

    Thank you baby jesus. I like how he is holding goggles because HE SWAM LAPS IN THE OCEAN.

    I can has cheezburger?

  • somebody blonde

    I think he could stand quite a bit more than 4″ off that hem, personally…

    • TwiddlyStun

      I was thinking 12″ would not be amiss.

  • t bell

    I wish they would come untied and fall down; after all it is sausage Friday.

  • Synnamin

    Saint Judy bless Sausage Friday!

  • Mrs. C

    Uncles, you must go to Fire Island more often.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Liz Lemon married that. Lucky Liz.

  • AnneElliot

    Well, happy birthday to ME. Thanks, TLo!!!

  • demidaemon

    AGREE. More thigh please.

  • YUM!

  • stephbellard

    I spent SO much time jerking off to him and Mark Paul Gosselaar in the 90’s…and they BOTH got hotter with age.

  • thatch pheasant

    Hem’s perfect. Very cool trunks.

  • JimiG

    Lordie. And I like the longer trunks. Belated Father’s Day gift, check!

    • JimiG

      For the husband! Not my dad!

  • North American men’s horrible taste in “swimming” trunks aside, this is delicious.
