We love Jake Johnson on "New Girl." He’s funny. He’s well-intentioned. But he’s kind of a slob. He's lazy and we do have to put an episode on pause from time to time just to contemplate what Zooey Deschanel’s character Jess sees in him exactly.
After all, he’s hard to read.
And not the most expressive with his emotions.
So he fills that void with drinking.
And says inappropriate things.
He’s super paranoid.
You can't eat out with him anywhere.
There’s always some kind of “issue.”
He’s a little anti-social.
But at the end of the day, he supports you.
He has ambition.
And an urgent sense of drive.
His rational POV keeps you grounded.
And he can be sweet when you least expect it.
