Who doesn’t have a crush on Jake Johnson at this point? Nick Miller—and Johnson by extension—is not what you would consider classically handsome, but I’ll be damned if he’s not one of the hottest men on TV right now. And I think it all lies in his expressive face. There’s something so honest and open about his facial expressions, whether he’s widening his eyes in fear as Tran carries him in the pool or looking at Jess with an intensity that gives me goosebumps through my TV screen.
I think Johnson’s appearance is indicative of Nick as a character—his appeal sneaks up on you; his beauty is in his imperfections because they make him real. He makes you feel as if finding your own Nick Miller is much more attainable than (but just as appealing as) finding your own Prince Charming. And he sure looks like he knows how to kiss a lady.
