    Well, he’ll be the only one with that new accessory. He wears it well? Good to see him smiling and okay. Nice suit!

    Very excited to see Ben in Gotham!

  • jayjax

    Very dapper, and I mean the suit. I’m glad that the head gash is healing and you didn’t miss a beat. Keep smiling and bring it on for next Monday. I hope the NY audience loved it!

  • liams

    It’s a different kind of look, but Ben makes it work! Rocking the suit.

    I hope Ben’s feeling better. He looks like he just shook it off.

    Not lucky enough to be in NYC at the Library, but anticipating next Monday’s premiere and the whole season.

  • sammi

    Jada looks different…not in a good way

  • maho

    Very glad to see Ben smiling. Props for the suit. Nice choice! It’s not like he can hide the cut and stitches. It is what it is. And one week to go. It’ll be great to have Ben back on weekly TV.

    so a wheelchair was rushed in…………

  • Riordan

    Looking sharp, Ben. As for the cut, there’s no way to make it disappear, but it’s looking better already.

    Very eager to see Ben as Gordon starting next week, with or without new scar. Counting down!

  • spelunk

    I’m not sure that “showing off” is the way to put it since it’s not like Ben can hide it and part of his job is to promote the show. He’s making the best of it and moving on. I bet he’s hoping that this will be quickly forgotten.

    2 thumbs up for the suit and very high hopes for next week and all season.

    Good call on the suit by Ben McK. Stylin’. If he had to spend a night at the hospital, Friday was the way to go, even on his birthday. He could be back on the job for Monday a.m. Any “showing off’ sounds out of place. He’s doing his job and attending a scheduled event just like he went to work first thing in the a.m.

    Almost time for a regular Monday p.m. viewing appointment to start.

    Glad to see that Ben didn’t miss a beat and very glad that he didn’t get seriously hurt. High marks for his suit. Classy to have the premiere at the NY Public Library. Can’t wait to see Ben next week.

  • NickyAngel

    Ben is wearing that suit :-)

    …but Jada looks like Botox Barbie

  • Kapree

    Not so sure about the headline and showing off a gash, but very sure about Ben’s suit. Nicely done. Definitely good to see that Ben’s okay after Friday’s “fight scene gone awry.” On to next Monday and an excellent freshman year.

  • Tyla

    Handsome guy. Really miss him as Ryan Atwood! Ryan sure knew how to pull off shiners and cuts lol.

  • tbuck2

    Super suit on Ben McKenzie. It’s an excellent distraction from his new birthday souvenir. Ouch. Good to see him at work, happy and ready to roll. Can’t wait for it to begin next week!
