Grant Gustin on the Set of “The Flash”

Posted on July 14, 2014

Apparently, his superpower is the ability to still look cute in a poorly fitted suit.

Congrats on your Bar Mitzvah, son. Now let’s get everything taken in, shall we?

This could be a really cute look. Love the very comic-booky, red-white-and-blue theme. He’s exactly the kind of guy the fashion bitch gods had in mind when they decided to bring back the skinny-panted Pee Wee suit. It’s a look he was born to wear, so let’s get cracking, costume department.

One thing’s for sure: this kid works an on-set photographer’s camera like an Old Hollywood starlet.

      OMG, it is like you read my mind. I was just wondering what happened to him. I think he looks pretty good. A nice smile fixes a lot of ill-fittedness.

      • Nicholas

        Headlining your own show makes a lot of people perk up, I reckon. :)

    • Frank_821

      Yes he could rock a true skinny suit. Although I wonder if the cut and fit were deliberate. His character on Arrow was a bit goofy and a hair on the side of socially awkward. Maybe they didn’t want Barry looking too chic or stylin :p

      • demidaemon

        I had the same thoughts. Perhaps it is purposefully ill-fitting.

    • capes and cowls

      The character (Barry Allen) has bad fashion in the comics so I’m sure the ill-fittedness was intentional here.

    • Beardslee

      Who is this boy?

      • Man Dala

        The new Flash on CW.

    • sienna elm

      The collar and tie fit bothers me most. It looks like the tie is too skinny for the space under the collar or something. Maybe the tie is too tight? It bugs.

      • kimmeister

        Good call – that collar is huge in comparison with the tie and that’s why it looks off.

    • smh4748

      He’s cute. Is he old enough for me to think that without being creepy?

      Edit: He’s 24! Much older than I feared. Thank goodness!

      • Janet B

        I had to look him up. He’s 24, will that work for you? ;)

        (He’s also 6’2″)

        • smh4748

          Yes! That’s within “the range.” ;)

    • Danielle

      I should say I’m available to help him out of that ill-fitted suit but I feel creepy for wanting it.

        *SNORT* I NEVER learn: no liquids when reading comments on T-Lo.

    • marlie

      He looks adorable! Hem the pants, and we’d have something here.

    • Anna

      My God, is this boy cute. If I was in my early ’20s, he’d give me the feels for sure.

    • Alyssa

      He’s so adorable…glad he’s 24 so I don’t feel too creepy thinking that! He doesn’t look his age for sure.

    • hughman

      I still think of him as the Bitter Gay Twink on “Glee”. Thanks a lot, Obamacare.

      • rhône

        I KNEW I RECOGNIZED HIM FROM SOMEWHERE. that storyline happened right around the time i stopped watching the show.

    • Audrey Lee

      He is pinch-his-cheeks adorable. I am surprisingly excited for the new Flash series. If it’s more Arrow and less Smallville it’ll be huge.

      • Kent Roby

        Also interesting: “Flash” and “Arrow” would be good names for porn films; “Smallville” would not!

      • gabbilevy

        The pre-reviews are pretty good, so I’m cautiously optimistic. Arrow has really raised the bar.

    • FibonacciSequins

      In 10 years he’ll be perfect to play Reed Richards in an inevitable Fantastic Four reboot.

      • random_poster

        Hopefully that will be much better than the original movies.

    • alyce1213

      I have no idea who this boy is. It’s hard to keep up.

    • mjude

      he is just a doll.

    • jhedman

      If he were dating my daughter, I’d tell her to watch out for that smile… it means he’s up to something! His look is handsome without being generic or boring. Seems like there’s probably a fine mind behind that cute face.

      • Anna

        Good advice. That smile would get me to agree to just about anything.

    • MilaXX

      He’s a cute and I am completely enamored.

    • demidaemon

      He is really adorable, despite the ill-fitting suit.

    • misstressofsylar

      I saw the leaked pilot. Lots of things to work on but it has potential. And he definitely lools the part!

      • semirose

        It’s better than I was expecting! And Gustin was too. I’d only seen a clip of him from Glee and he was so wooden but he brought some of the Barry Allen sparkle to the character so I’m excited.

    • decormaven

      Shiny as a new dime!

    • gayle

      He is adorable.

    • teensmom99

      No idea who he is but bar mitzvah is on the nose.

    • KT

      He looks way too young and twinky to my eyes, but clearly T Lo disagrees… easy, boys!

    • crash1212

      Awww. I’m kind of loving the “Jr.’s First Suit” vibe of this. He’s adorable.

    • Lisalady161

      Lordy, is he ever cute! I don’t know if he can act or the show will be any good, but he’s got the cute bit down pat.

    • mellorcr

      “Apparently, his superpower is the ability to still look cute in a poorly fitted suit.” I hope that applies to the superhero suit also, cause that thing is HIDEOUS!

    • LibKat

      It’s weird. The Arrow costume department has been able make suits fit Stephen Amell perfectly. So who did this to Grant?

      • semirose

        Amell’s body is a specific skill set. Cutie though he is Gustin doesn’t fit that mold.

    • Kirstin McAulay

      well they’ve got Barry down pat in character….

    • RKaede1x1

      Him and Andrew Garfield should do a face-off for their hair.

    • quiltrx

      He has that “I want to put him in my pocket” cuteness. I’ll say it again, those are some seriously skinny legs.

    • Bert Keeter

      I think it looks great. I’ve seen a lot worse fitting suits …a lot!

    • formerlyAnon

      He has a KILLER smile. Check that last pic! But also looks like a fairly weedy 15 year old.

    • Nicholas

      Those colours are great, and he’s lobbying to be in the Justice League movie.

    • Victoria Pavlova

      I remember watching him in Glee and thinking that from that point on he would be playing douchesnoozles like Ed Westwick. But I see him here and in Arrow and he made such a nice transition to the Good Guys. Awesome smile.

    • JynxTheCat

      Are those jeans or the pants for the suit?
