Austin Nichols: Lips Beyond Compare

Austin Nichols, Jake Gyllenhaal‘s BFF, shows off his rosy red lips and blindingly white smile at the premiere of the HBO original series John from Cincinnati at the Los Angeles Paramount Theater on Thursday.

John from Cincinnati is a surfing drama created by David Milch, who had also produced Deadwood. Nichols, 27, will play the lead John Monrad, a mysterious guy from Cincinnati who moves out to California and joins a close-knit but dysfunctional surfing community.

Cast pictured below (L to R): Keala Kennelly, Luke Perry, Austin Nichols, Grayson Fletcher, Brian Van Holt, Rebecca De Mornay, Matt Winston, Bruce Greenwood, Ed O’Neill and Garret Dillahunt.

John From Cincinnati premieres on HBO on Sunday June 10.

    Jake’s down-lo BFF???

  • Lucie

    Is it just me or does this guy have a really large forehead? Is it just the hair that gives this appearance? He just reminds me of Vanilla Ice

  • Anon.

    Ewwww! Saw him on TV talk show. He’s a nice,intelligent, bland guy. The kind of guy you could hang out with, no pressure. He is not gay. Why? Bcz he said he isn’t. He’s a pretty decent actor. But as for his looks, he looks like and extra-terrestial…which is good considering he’s “John from Cincinnati…” LOL!!!!

  • xy

    jared, what a pointless post! rosy lips?! pointless.

  • magnus

    lol @ pointless.

    This show will be what you sheep are all baaaing over once it hits.

    STFU and watch the show.

    I could care less about how that guy looks. The writing is amazing.


  • Malmoy

    “John from Cincinnati” is getting really good reviews. The creator, David Milch, has a cult following from “Deadwood” and from “NYPD Blue”. The first episode of the show will air immediately after the “Sopranos” finale on Sunday, June 10. Check it out. Oh yeah, and Austin looks really good in a wetsuit.

  • [Famous Fug Face]

    Dudes flaming. Lmao @ magnuts going hard at people.

  • Anon

    I am looking forward to this show. However, Austin is very cute but I think Jake is the one that has amazing lips and smile.

  • SuzieQ

    I don’t get it…what’s the big deal about his lips? Seriously.

  • Janie

    Looking good, Luke Perry!!! Wow.

    I think Austin is adorable but…please grow your hair out.

    Al Bundy got so old.

  • Cindy

    Austin’s hairstyle is for the show. He’s much cuter when he grows it out and it’s curly. Watch the show – he looks really good in some of the scenes. And Brian Van Holt ain’t bad on the eyes either.

  • Andy

    He and Jake should make out.
    That’d be hot.
    Im’ kidding…just a lil’ bit.

  • Anon.

    Actually, Austin’s lips are not at all remarkable…just like the rest of him. And the snarky,nasty jokes about Austin and Jake are ovah!!! Very old, not funny, and really kinda childish. Even in LaLaland it’s possible for guys to hang out and be buddies…and not have sex with each other. Just like in other parts of the world.

  • Lora

    Why didn’t Jake and Reese attend the premiere???

    Seriously, Austin is a cutie. Congrats to him on the show.

  • Angie

    Oooh, I like his lips. They look very kissable. But forget Jake, I’ll take him for myself.

  • BS


    Forget Jake?!?! Um, no way. I will happliy keep Jake occupied.

  • Felix

    The show looks interesting. Should be some great characters if Milch is involved. I’ll be checking it out.

  • mrs grated cheese

    He needs to borrow Jake’s stylist because quite frankly, that hair needs to go!

    I liked Deadwood hopefully this show will be just as good.

  • Cindy

    The hair is for the show. Sometimes actors have no choice.

  • Anon

    This guy seems very nice and sweet but i don’t find him attractive at all, i don’t know why. He’s just kind of funny looking lol

  • Jake

    And what do you look like anon 1:41???????


  • Jill

    I think Austin’s looks are an acquired taste. I personally find him to be yummy.

  • Jill

    And Jake’s looks are an acquired taste too. A lot of people think he’s ugly. I don’t know what they’re talking about though because he’s a dream to me.

  • Amanda

    Jared come on when are you going to investigate and find out more about Jake and Austin? From what I have read and heard Jake and Austin are more then just BFF. They are a gay couple in love. When are you going to get more pics of Jake and Austin together Jared? Toothy Tile and his boyfriend! I want to see more pics of Jake and Austin!!!

    “Grandma’s Boy” and Robert Romanus from “Fast Times” makes a great
    big fat cameo appearance in
    The Utopian Society

  • Hal

    His problem, or one of them, is that he is TOO tall. To be movie-star attractive you can’t be too short or too tall. He is too tall. His buddy Jake G. is just right. That’s why Jake does movies and Austin does TV dramas, something Jake would probably refuse to do.
