We’ve been keeping close Twitter tabs on the actors behind “The Inbetweeners” and have suddenly come to the conclusion that–man, oh man–they’re actually kinda hot! Seeing their real-life selves in a social networking light has been like the heavens opening up and tiny cherub angels singing down to us: “These high school students are your future loves! Appreciate them for the precious humans they are!”
Say hello to your future boyfriend!
OK, so maybe it wasn’t so dramatic, but we had a pretty striking epiphany while recently perusing their tweets: We’ve been totally duped. All of Jay, Will, Neil and Simon‘s dumb jokes and crazy antics have been masking the fact that each of them is, well, a future babe. Sure, at the moment the friendship quad are middle-ground dweebs, but you know who else was on the social fringe at one time or another? Andy Samberg. Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Ryan Gosling. (And like, a zillion other dream boyfriends we keep a list of in our desk drawer.)
Think about it this way: What do high school guys obsess over incessantly? Puddles of booze and tons of sex. When they turn 18 and ship out to college, both will be flowing like the Mississippi River, and the novelty of partying will eventually wear off (at least by their third year). Once that happens, they’ll be the best versions of themselves–and the best catches on campus. Even Will! If his friends don’t ruin his rep, the kid’s got what it takes to make it to the White House someday, and he’ll probably need a lady to join him…
See what we mean? Sometimes, you just gotta look past an innocent d*** joke or horrific Muppet yellow-colored car to see the gems that are lying beneath the obnoxious surface. If you’re wise, you’ll call dibs on your favorite before anyone else gets to him first.
