Jesse Metcalfe connects with The Imagista for his latest feature. Embracing deconstructed styles and essential tailoring, Metcalfe is styled by Kelly Brown and photographed by Michael Scott Slosar. Wearing a mix of brands, the 37-year-old actor is pictured in Hugo Boss, Azul by Moussy, G-Star Raw, and more.
Talking to Michael Williams, Metcalfe reveals his acting inspirations, sharing, “It may sound a little cliche, but James Dean and Marlon Brando, they were two actors that changed the game. They changed how actors approached building characters. I feel like there are different styles of acting through different time periods and different generations, but the impact that they had is definitely still felt to this day.”

Changing the subject to modern actors, Metcalfe continues, “My favorite actor at the moment is a guy by the name of Ben Mendelsohn. I think he is incredible, very layered as an actor. The first time I noticed him was in a film called A Place Beyond the Pines and then he was on the first season of a really, really great show on Netflix called Bloodline.”
Continuing his accolades of Mendelsohn, Metcalfe explains, “He’s amazing! Everything he does is so layered, and it’s so cool to see a real powerhouse film actor like that go to TV and see what they can do and see how they stack up against other actors. I mean the entire cast of the show is great, but for me, even within that incredible ensemble of talent, he shines. In all honesty, I pretty much lost interest in the show after he died (laughs).” Read more on TheImagista.com.
