Found: Rainn Wilson

Filed under: General — Laura Moncur @ 8:25 am

This morning, NakedJen and I went on a walk with her dogs. Since she moved in across the street, I have been lucky enough to go with her on her morning walks. It has really helped me stop being so crazy. This morning I found this card on the ground:

Rainn Wilson

It’s a 20% off coupon for The Gap. I don’t really care about that. I just like the photo of Rainn Wilson on the other side. Rainn Wilson plays Dwight on The Office. By NO stretch could he ever be called cute, but this photo of him all bundled up on sweaters and gloves makes him look really cute.

Not sexy, mind you, CUTE. Cute like kittens and puppies, not cute like Brad Pitt.

I first saw this photo on a full page ad on the back of Entertainment Weekly. I pulled it out and I have been thinking about it ever since. What makes him cute? Is it the mitten/glove conversion? Is it the varied styles of knitwear? Is it the two day stubble on his face? What?

It can’t be any of those things because this photo of him with Selma Blair isn’t nearly as cute.

Selma Blair and Rainn Wilson

It’s all there: the knitwear, the scarf, the stubble. He doesn’t look quite as cute in this photo as he does in the previous one. Is it the hat? The glasses? I’m really at a loss on this one.

I can’t figure it out.

Holy cow, the video is cute, too!

  2. Great, now I’m fantasizing about Rainn Wilson.

    knock knock

    Oh hi!

    Oh your car broke down just outside?

    And your cell phone isn’t working?

    Of course, of course, that’s no trouble at all.

    Yes, I know who you are.

    Ok, they’re on their way. They’ll be here in about an hour.

    Oh no, don’t be silly! Come in, it’s freezing out there!……. :)

    ps: I think he’s cute!
