  2. asta says:

    you are right, he’s got that it factor.

  3. Jared says:

    I agree..he is definitely one to watch.

  4. Mandy says:

    When I saw him in the last few episodes of Mindy, I couldn’t help but love him even when he was a douche. I couldn’t figure out why he didn’t have his own show! Problem solved!

  5. Ace says:

    I was sad to see him go on The Mindy Project. I might have to watch this. I’m not into Seth MacFarlane at all, but Tommy Dewey is just so charming.

  6. Jane says:

    Wow that’s a really good pic of him… is it just me or did they play down his looks on MP? was it the glasses?

    • woozy says:

      that’s not even that great of a pic. i saw him at a bar a while back. tommy dewey is so good-looking it’s nerve-wracking.

  7. Hipper says:

    his character is still the best thing on ‘mindy project’ so far. one show’s missed opportunity is another one’s gain.

  8. Tee says:

    Good for him! I really liked him on Mindy Project.

  9. zola says:

    I also liked him on TMP. He was really the only reason to watch. I’ll check out the show just for him.
