    • Same here! Although I thought he was way too cute for Max. I liked when the girls kept finding reasons for him to take his shirt off.

    • Same! I really liked him on Political Animals, but every time I see him, I think about Grant and Max. He should definitely go back to Happy Endings.

  • I would watch James Wolk on pretty much any show. He is an unfairly beautiful human.
