Who's Our Favorite Jason?

Record-breaking week! Hugh brought out our highest votes yet, but the winner was overwhelming. I shouldn't be surprised, but you guys clearly have a favorite Hugh.

And the winner is...

Hugh Jackman.

Like, well over half the votes. If Hugh ever needs to start a fan club, he should start here.

This week, we're voting for our favorite Jason. Maybe it's just me, but this is one of the hardest weeks. A lot of cult favorites, emotional juggernauts, and overall hot guys that pluck at our teenage hearts. Have fun choosing.


Jason Bateman

Why We Love Him

He's so beautifully average. Is that okay to say? Cute but regular. Funny but regular. Charming but regular. I think under the proper circumstances, he could be your date to your college roommate's wedding, and it would only be weird for a few minutes.

Where We've Seen Him

Little House on the Prairie, Silver Spoons, Teen Wolf, Juno, and Arrested Development.


Jason Dohring

Where We've Seen Him

Veronica Mars.

Why We Love Him

Because Logan is one of the most swoon-worthy characters in the history of television. He starts off as such a tool but turns into a killer heartthrob and you want to have his babies did I say that out loud? His character arc is fascinating; it's hard to so easily go from Hated to Loved. 


Jason Priestley

Why We Love Him

If you grew up on 90210 and weren't into the bad guy, Jason Priestley was on your folders and pencil cases and walls without question. 

Where We've Seen Him

Obviously, we know him from 90210, but to all the moms out there, did you know he's the voice of Sketch on that new Amazon animated series Creative Galaxy? Mind = BLOWN.


Jason Ritter

Why We Love Him

First, he lost his dad (John Ritter) and two of his grandparents in the same year; that does a lot to a person's soul and how they move in the world. Second, he brings a lot of humanity to his characters, a depth I don't think you can get by being a loser of a person. Third, terrible facial hair not withstanding, he's a very particular kind of hot. And fourth, Mark Cyr is everything. If you watched Parenthood and didn't fall in love at least a little bit with that character, you're made of stone. P.S. That role got him an Emmy nomination. Damn straight.

Where We've Seen Him

Joan of Arcadia, Parenthood, The Event (not a bad show actually), and an arc on Girls.


Jason Segal

Why We Love Him

He doesn't have an exhaustive list of acting credits, but the roles he has had have catapulted him into the beloved bosom of many a lady. (Sorry. I have a tiny baby; bosoms are my life right now. It won't happen again.) He's funny and charming which gets you a long way in Hollywood. 

Where We've Seen Him

Freaks and Geeks, Knocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Muppets, This Is 40, and of course How I Met Your Mother.


Jason Sudeikis

Why We Love Him

I mean, oh my gosh. Jason Sudeikis makes me so happy. Some people don't actually think he's very talented (I'm looking at you, Knox and Jamie), but I disagree. He might not have range, but what he does - the charming, slightly bristly everyman - he does oh so well. Slash I could watch him dance on the SNL "What's Up With That?" sketch for hours upon hours. 

Where We've Seen Him

Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock as one of my favorite Liz Lemon boyfriends, Horrible Bosses, and The Last Man on Earth. Also he's in a movie coming out in 2017 called Downsizing, starring Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig, Alec Baldwin, Christoph Waltz, Margo Martindale, Neil Patrick Harris... I mean, COME ON. An embarrassment of celebrity riches.


Voting is over! Jason Bateman is your winner!
