Hi.

I'm Kendra, and I'm here to help you be a genius about the things that matter and lazy about the things that don't. Welcome to your people.

Who's Our Favorite Jim?

Who's Our Favorite Jim?

Happy Friday, guys! After today, we have just three more Fridays of voting for our favorite names. And they're good ones. But don't worry... I have plans to extend looking at pretty pictures of famous people for as long as possible. 

Last week, we voted for our favorite Patrick. I figured it would come down to a close race between Dempsey and Stewart, and I was correct. I was, however, pleasantly surprised at the winner. Maybe it was the photo.

Your favorite Patrick is...

Patrick Stewart!

He is my sister's favorite Patrick, and this is her favorite photo of him. You can send your thank you notes to her hashtag forearms.

Okay, let's dive into the vote for our favorite Jim! And, no, you can't choose Jim Halpert.


Jim Carrey

Where We've Seen Him

Dumb and Dumber, Ace Ventura, The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Bruce Almighty, The Majestic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Liar Liar, and The Mask. Wow, that's a lot of popular movies.

Why We Love Him

Yeah, he's kind of a big deal, or at least was a decade ago. Uniquely funny and surprisingly handsome from certain angles, Jim Carrey was the icon of film comedy during the 90s. He's a goofball and also pretty broken... as many comedians are. His family was extremely poor, and he worked eight hour shifts after school to help keep his family afloat. My favorite bit is that as a kid he'd wear tap shoes to bed in case his parents "needed cheering up in the middle of the night." 


Jim Caviezel

Where We've Seen Him

he Passion of the Christ, Person of Interest, The Count of Monte Cristo, and The Thin Red Line.

Why We Love Him

Have you recently spent any time looking at this man's face? Because he is HAWWWT. Which is weird to say because I totally can't look at him without thinking of Jesus and I'm pretty sure we're not allowed to think of Jesus as hot. But we can think Jim is, especially when you hear a few things about him. He's super athletic... like NBA-level athletic until an injury ended his college career. He's super religious and refuses to do sex scenes. And he met his wife on a blind date in NINETEEN NINETY-THREE. She's a school teacher. They've been married or twenty years and have three adopted children. BE STILL MY HEART, HE'S A NORMAL.


Jimmy Fallon

Where We've Seen Him

Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show.

Why We Love Him

Jimmy Fallon is the avatar of dorky adorableness. I'm not sure there's much else to say... except that I hope he's less dependent on alcohol as he seems to be. I want him to stick around a long time.

Jimmy Kimmel

Where We've Seen Him

The Man Show, Win Ben Stein's Money, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He also killed it hosting the Emmys last year and will host the Oscars later this month. Great call. 

Why We Love Him

He's one of my personal favorite television personalities. He's dry, incredibly funny, super hot ever since that beard came on the scene, and he doesn't let anyone off the hook. Plus that segment on his show where parents record telling their kids they ate their Halloween candy is one of the highlights of my year. 


Jim Parsons

Where We've Seen Him

The Big Bang Theory, Hidden Figures, The Normal Heart, Judging Amy, and Garden State.

Why We Love Him

I've never gotten into The Big Bang Theory, but I realize that MILLIONS of people are since it's been one of the top rated comedies on television for years. And that's all because of Sheldon, so Jim Parsons is a strong contender. Also he was voted the friendliest person in his high school graduating class. That makes me like him even more. Friendliness, especially in high school, is a lovely thing.


Jimmy Smits

Where We've Seen Him

NYPD Blue, Sons of Anarchy, a few of the Star Wars movies, Dexter, The West Wing, LA Law, and he's in the new 24 that premieres on Sunday.

Why We Love Him

He's so suave, right? That voice? And those cheekbones? Also he's brainy with a Master's from Cornell. And even though this is so dumb, Jimmy is not short for James; his given name is Jimmy. I LOVE THAT.


The votes are in! Your favorite is Fallon!
