DA MAN – After reappearing as one of his most iconic characters 2016’s “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” to much acclaim, Matt Czuchry is set to once again grace the small screen in another drama series with huge potential.

Matt Czuchry Talks Fashion, Fame and the Gilmore Girls Reunion
Matt Czuchry knows a cult hit when he sees one. He rose to fame as Logan Huntzberger, Rory Gilmore’s college love interest on Gilmore Girls, before playing hotshot young lawyer Cary Agos on The Good Wife. Now, the Benjamin Button-esque actor (he’s 39!) is returning to his Gilmore roots when all four 90-minute chapters of the “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” reboot premiere on Netflix at midnight PST on Nov. 25. We sat down with Czuchry, our latest Haute Living “Man of Style” (watch out for his shoot in the coming weeks), to discuss his career choices, his fashion favorites and why going back to Stars Hollow ten years later was one of the best decisions he’s ever made.
How did it feel to film Gilmore Girls again?
The energy surrounding the project was something so incredibly powerful, unique, and pure. I say “pure” because ever since we wrapped the original series in 2007, fans of the show have wanted more from this world they loved so deeply. And although their voices were very passionate for a very long time, it looked like new stories were never going to come together. And then… it happened. Something once thought impossible, became possible. How many times can you truly say that in life? And on top of that, it came together in such a perfect and special way. The original creators returned to write all four scripts and direct all four movies. All the cast members came back. A lot of original crew members worked on the project. So, it is new stories born from this very pure place of love from the fans; and in turn, everyone who worked on creating these stories was fueled by this unique energy of something that was once thought to be improbable, coming to life.
