Honestly, I really don't think the latest behind-the-scenes picture of Gale is all that flattering. (See previous two posts) And I'm not the only one. There are a few fans on the IMDB boards that have expressed the same opinion.
What it all boils down to is the fact that as Gale fans, we're just happy to see a new picture. Any picture. And that confession is why I find this post on EW.com so amusing.
Mandy Bierly, on the Pop Watch Blog, waxes enthusiastic about Gale's upcoming role on DH.
"After seeing this behind-the-scenes photo of new cast member Gale Harold on ABC's press site, my excitement level for Desperate Housewives' Sept. 28 season premiere was at a 10 — even with the hair that I would trim and the shirt that I would lose. So you can imagine the squeal excitement at 5:52 p.m. ET last night, when I received an email saying that ABC had just uploaded the episode to the site. I won't spoil it for you, but let's just say that this — or any — shirt really isn't an issue in his first two scenes as Susan's lover.
How excited are you now?"
I'm still pretty damned excited.
I prefer this picture instead. It's a repeat, but who cares!
Same shirt, same hair, more flattering angle.
