  1. Wow. I think that is the fastest posting of a comment in the history of OT! (3 minutes) :)

  2. I absolutely LOVE these photos of Rainn! Especially the ones of him in the plaid pants. I know I’m probably the only one that thinks this, but he’s a total hunk. Not J-Kras, hunky, but his own individually defined hunkiness. I love him.

  3. The article is hilarious. My favorite quote from him:

    “I’d like to see Dwight get his own office. I’d also like to see Dwight hunt, wrestle, or kill something next season.”

    He also provides some great insight regarding why aliens need to do better research and really think things through before they invade new planets.

  4. I used to think that Rainn was one of the most unattractive, creepy-looking men I’d ever seen. Now, not so much. I’m actually beginning to think he’s kind of cute, in an odd way. He’s always been funny, quirky, and witty. Go, Rainn! Thanks for posting these pics.

  5. I think the reason he can appear to be so unattractive and unappealing and weird looking is because he’s a really good actor. I’ve always been fascinated by how little someone’s actually looks can have to do with how attractive they are. So much of it is about how one carries oneself. Of course they also have his hair really bad and stuff, but it’s much more than that.

    I’m sure John could look really unattractive if he were playing a different part.

  6. This is a very funny article. I’m glad to hear he’s writing a movie with Paul. That should be great. It’s funny to read that Rainn auditioned for Michael as well, and did a bad imitation of Ricky Gervais! Hee.

    I can’t believe he was one of the finalists for the role of GOB on Arrested Development! It’s odd to imagine him in that role.

  7. I was very excited to get my copy of Entertainment Weekly in the mail today knowing I’d have some Rain inside.Him talking about aliens and stupid they can be had me in tears.
