Who was that  handsome dark-haired young man Kathy Griffin brought to the Teen Choice Awards?

A new up-and-coming actor?

Um, no. That would be Levi Johnston, Bristol Palin's baby daddy, who was in town for a Vanity Fair shoot, no doubt to accompany his tell-all story on Sarah Palin.  And he probably had some meetings about that rumored reality TV show.

Looks like he's already made it on Kathy's D-List!

Griffin made like they were a real couple.

 "Long-distance relationships are not easy, especially when he's in his igloo and I'm in my Hollywood tower," she toid reporters.

Asked what it's like being Griffin's date, Levi just grinned,  "I just, you know, look at her, shut up and do what I'm told."

Kinda like what Todd Palin does with Sarah

What do you think about Levi's Hollywood ambitions? Cheesy, sleazy or par-for-the-course?

More Levi Dish:

Levi spills the beans about why Sarah Palin really quit! Yes, $$$$$$$!

Bristol and Levi split up? We didn't see that coming….

Abstinence is not a good idea, according to Bristol Palin, who certainly should know
