Glamour magazine's new "Jake" columnist is a guy named Michael Somerville. Something like 36,000 people voted for this shit. Personally I liked Adam, but I knew the gaunt, hairless terminal illness aesthetic — and the fact that he has a kid and actual responsibilities — was not going to go over with the base. Michael's salient characteristic is that, like those other two irresistible males of summer 2K7, Seth Rogen and Fred Thompson, he is sort of fat, and on that basis probably also: self-deprecating bc was a loser in high school, smart without being particularly driven, good at karaoke. Gorgeous women who are insecure about their bodies — which is to say, 85% of the females in New York — flock to him, but he does not take that for granted. A fleshed-out field guide to come.
