    As if Jenny wasn’t irritating enough (tho she was ok in this season’s 1st episode), they have to bring “Kaitlin freakin Cooper” and she has to be a bad girl too. GODDDDDDDDD -_-

    whatever to the comments above. This guy’s cuter, much cuter than Dan and his big chin, imo.

  • c

    He has a Cillian Murphy look but I hope he can pull off that kind of sexiness b/c otherwise: not hot.

  • googlesmith

    I absolutely adore him! The pictures do him absolutely no justice.

  • C

    John is without a doubt one of the most talented young actors out there today. I’m excited that he’s finally going to be getting the recognition he’s always deserved, though I can’t help but feel that he’s sold himself short with this one! He’s got so much more depth, variety and talent than the actors on Gossip Girl, but if it means seeing him on my TV screen once a week, I suppose I’ll deal with the artistic downgrade. Much love, JPA!

  • Gossipgirlbabe

  • elina

  • Sarah

    John Patrick Amedori is a good lookin’ cat! His talent far exceeds this stupid show, but I hope it leads to helpful exposure…and a nice paycheck.

  • jay

    aaron is not vanessas brother though on this. i think hes hot. but i agree that they messed up on marcus. chuck is my fave on the show and hes not that dominant in the books

  • Mandie

    omg he was tottally (thats how i spell it) hot in stick it but now he is rlly ugly! what the flippin hell happened to him!?!?!?

  • tommy

    Yes, John Patrick Amedori is gay. That is why all my friends & I call him John Faggot Amedori. We used to be obsessed, literally like 4 1/2 years, and he betrayed us all. I can’t believe I wasted like a fourth of my lifetime on him, he owes me at least $250 that I spent on him. Seriously…
