Scott Bakula Thought It Was Great To Show Off In The Steam Room On “Looking”

bakulaIt was funny. I thought the scene was great, a great introduction of my character. You know, we as actors are always looking for great ways to show off on camera, and it was a great scene. This was as close as I’d ever gotten to a real bathhouse. Just hearing about it in my old days in New York in the mid-‘70s, you know that was a huge deal. That’s where Bette Midler started and that whole scene! My gay friends would be off to Sunday Tea, and then roll in at 9 the next morning after the bathhouse. But that was about as close as I ever got. But I thought this was a great scene, a great way to introduce the character. I love what that scene was about. But no, I wasn’t shocked. In terms of having my clothes off, I do that a lot.”

    Well I enjoyed looking, Mr. Bakula… Get it? Looking?

    (Pats self on back. Drops mic. Exits stage left.)

  • SteveDenver

    He has crafted a fantastic body. I’m glad he was comfy sharing it with us.

  • Spike

    Def a Daddy I’d like to fuck.

  • Fitz

    I think he is tremendously sexy. And, maybe it’s wishful thinking, but he also seems like a very decent human.

  • UWSguy


  • Palto

    He’s a real man. Not a sorry excuse for one like todays’ bleach haired twinks looking like plucked scrawny chickens.

  • Arkansassy

    A great example of a man aging gracefully!

    Finally, A Queerty feedback forum in which the posted comments are all POSITIVE and FAVORABLE!! (As of my posting, anyhow, LOL.) About fucking TIME!

    And YEP, I concur across the board: Scott Bakula has always been painfully hot in all of his roles. He definitely comes across as a totally cool guy in interviews, too–which is always nice when that happens. If you haven’t seen the William Shatner cinematic tribute to all of Star Trek’s many captains, you can view “The Captains” online via N-Flix streaming(not sure if I’m allowed to mention the brand name on here), well worth a viewing to any fan of the ST franchise. Shatner interviewed Bakula, regarding his tenure as captain of the series, “Enterprise.” Mr. B came across as extremely humble, fun, and yassir, a seriously hot looking man.

    Cheers, Mr. Bakula! Always nice to find another movie star who’s the opposite of an EL LAY Ayyye-hole. And way cool that you’re comfortable having openly gay pals who used to “hit the baths.” Rock on, hot man!

  • Alan down in Florida

    He definitely wears his age well.

    @GymJockTX: He was my favorite starship captain for obvious reasons. Him and his 2nd in command Trip Tucker. Runner up would be Capt Janeway. She’s one touch bit**.

  • TVC 15

    @Stache1: Ugh, I still have sexy daydreams about Trip (Connor Trinneer). But, I loved Scott Bakula since “Quantum Leap.”

  • Cam


    They showed him in his underwear a few times in Enterprise, Great body!

    And of course, the first episode where Tripp was in his underwear in the decontamination chamber…..yeah, the series looked promising. lol

  • misterhollywood

    Always like Scott B. He seems like a decent guy and he has a fairly solid career.
