  • Lemoin

    great to see him back on the screen. Talent wise he was only bested by Kelly Rowan but we all know talent doesnt count for much in Hollywood…

    I think in this we will be able to see him thrive.

  • Lane

    He is so hot! I love him.

  • Frankie

    Thank you so much for these.
    I can’t wait for the show to start, the promos look so good.
    He is definitely looking better and better the older he gets.
    Keep with the Ben posts!!!.

  • adam

    I’d rather read about this guy working than see another post of Rachel Bilson on another shopping trip

  • sybille

    i love him ! He is a good actor.

  • ashley

    his performances are so excellent in the OC

  • b

    I used to watch the OC. But now as I look at the old eps, it was wack. I hope this show is better.

  • pauline

    Completely agree with adam, less Bilson more Mckenzie!!
    Somebody who is pictured working and not just “looking cute”.
    I have seen loads of promos for the show and it looks like Ben will be given the chance to shine.

  • Gandalf

    Yes finally Ben on TV and as a cop too!!!!!

  • Controll

    Great actor!

  • mr. d

    He’s definitley not pretty like Paul Walker. He’s pretty rough looking actually, but I liked his acting in the O.C. Hopefully this project does well.

  • Anna

    Can’t wait to have him back on TV. It’s been too long.

  • MIdori

    No one can deny he is one of the reasons why the OC was a
    legendally big hit show. I’ve been waiting for him , his acting so long.

    Got more experiences, I can’t wait what he will show us this time.
    I wish everyone in showbiz world recognizes his talent and pushes
    his career up.

  • David

    I wonder why we never hear of Ben’s private life….hmmmm…..

  • toni

    yay so happy cant wait until 9th april

  • Lane

    I really want this show to start already

  • fifimom

    Thanks for posting the pictures. I must say Ben looks really good in uniform.

  • Lynda

    I wanna watch this

  • glen

    @David 28-

    we never hear about Ben’s private life because he doesn’t have a blog where he talks about it. He also doesn’t tip off the paparazzi about his whereabouts just so he can get some publicity

  • MMA

    He is looking so amazing these days! I just wish he were filming for The OC rather than Southland =(

    put a www in the beginning of the links

  • odavid

    Oh David. Look. Your favorite Ted Casablanca talks about Ben

    Dear Ted:
    Are you aware that you’re worshiped by stay-at-home moms everywhere? Just thought you should know…I have a question for you: I’ve recently become enamored with Benjamin McKenzie. Besides being utterly adorable, he’s clearly educated and well-spoken. Please tell me my new little fantasy crush doesn’t have anything scandalous in his life. (I can already hear you saying now “Define scandalous.”)

    Dear Me Too:
    Do you realize I worship stay-at-home moms (and dads) everywhere? Raising two dogs and a cat on my own is hard work enough, but actually having to pull that with human beings? Jeez, my hat’s off to anybody who tries! As to Benji, I think you’ve picked a good one. Not too much dirt I feel like I need to tell ya on the former O.C. boy. Then again he did date Mischa Barton for a while…so judge for yourself.
