    Is Jesse the neighbor? If so, he isn’t her boyfriend on the show.

    JJ said he was her love interest, not her boyfriend.

    I just think they need to stop adding new characters and concentrate on the regulars. It’s already a large and very entertaining bunch!

    well what do I think? that they should stop trying to go back to romance with new characters . I just don’t know why they had to get rid of Gio (or Henry) if they were going to focus AGAIN in romance (and not in her independent career as ABC people claimed)

    He is so cute. He has a Josh Groban quality to him. I think he should stick around!

    That picture doesn’t do him justice, because on the show he was adorable. They make an odd match, but his character is likeable.

    So cute, good job casting :)

    I love Matt. He’s adorable and Betty should stay with him, unless he’s hiding something. Henry was a wimp and Jesse was a jerk. I think Matt looks a bit like Tom Cruise and sort of sounds like him too.

    Isn’t he the same guy that won a contest impersonating Tom Cruise on Entertainment Tonight a couple months ago? Mario Lopez showed the tape of his impersonation to Tom Cruise.

    He is cute! He reminds me of Josh Groban. That is not a good picture of him. He looks better on the show.

    I realized tonight looking at the show that I think he is attractive. He is not a typical “hot”. I don’t know what it is about him… charisma? Or maybe, he just reminds me of my own boyfriend in a way.

    Roxxy Says:

    But OMG! In the show, he is sooooo hottt! Freakin hot!! I swear, I never met a boy cuter than him in my life (ok, maybe…) but when you get past the small beard and mustache, you’re gonna love him. I am glad he is going to be on this show. Good luck DEG (and with him in this show, it should be interesting…)!

    Roxxy Says:

    oh and um, you people are right. On the show, he looks quite a bit like Josh Groban, a spitting image, an unknown twin. COOL!! =)
