Whatta Man Monday ~ Dylan McDermott vs Dermot Mulroney

So last week was a first.

There was a tie.  A TIE!!

It all came down to one vote, where someone split their vote between “then” and “now”.  But since the vote was for 80′s heartthrob, I had to go with her “then” vote.

So anyway, a tie between Kirk Cameron and Michael J Fox.  There’s a first time for everything!


This week I know there will not be a tie.  And I am pretty sure I know who the winner will be, which MEANS that the winner will be the opposite of what I think.  I can never get these right!

Did you guys see that SNL skit where Dylan McDermott and Dylan Mulroney are interchangeable?
It’s hilarious…I laughed because I have thought this so many times!

Anyhow, since they are indeed different people I thought it might be fun to pit them against each other in this week’s Whatta Man Challenge!

Let’s do it.


Dylan McDermott vs Dermot Mulroney

They are both actors whose careers have taken them through the past decades.

Pretty impressive.

Here are two of my favorites from each.  And they are both Julia Roberts movies.

PicMonkey CollageDylan in Steel Magnolias and Dermot in My Best Friend’s Wedding.  Both favorites of mine.

For sure.

Let’s take a look at them in black and white.

And then shirtless and almost shirtless…

PicMonkey Collage2Full disclosure here.  The shirtless photo I found of Dermot from fairly recently just wasn’t fair to put up.  I mean, like my friend tells me, a spray tan and good lighting are everyone’s friend.

So I put in an almost shirtless.  Dylan on the other hand.  Well, yeah.

And of course in a suit…

Lately Dylan was in American Horror Story, the first season and Dermot was on New Girl for a few episodes.  Someone get these guys back on tv!

Let’s take another look back on them from the 90′s.

Anyhow, if you can tell them apart who’s your guy?  Dylan or Dermot?  Dermot or Dylan?

    I say Dermot. Anyone remember how skervy and dirty and scruffy he looked in Young Guns?? He had bad teeth and spit all over the place. That was the first thing I ever saw him in. I was surprised at how well he cleaned up later.

    And Dylan was such a skeezy sort in American Horror Story.

    Dermot! My Best Friend’s Wedding and The Wedding Date are two great romcoms!

    Joseph says:

    If they were a gay couple getting married then Dermot could change his surname to match Dylan’s and then he’d be “Dermot McDermott.” Twice the hotness for the same surname. Bingo. Everybody’s happy.

    But truthfully Dermot is hotter. Objectively.

    tamy says:

    just saw a pic of dermott now and he’s not good at all. I never find him attractive but in Muy bestfriend’s wedding he was a cutie or even on Friends but now please just no
    So dylan for me and he’s getting better and better with age


  1. [...] talk about men — last week, Dermot Mulroney beat Dylan McDermott by a landslide.  I guess they aren’t so interchangeable after [...]
