My Geeky TV Crush: Jim Halpert

I've celebrated my boyfriend, the geeky guys I love, and now I've got to give it up for my imaginary boyfriends on Valentine's Day too! And my big, ultimate (for right now anyway), TV crush is Jim Halpert. Not John Krasinski, but Jim Halpert.

Is obsessed too strong a word? I've loved Jim since The Office started airing, because he represents my kind of guy — the geeky but adorable guy who was too shy to talk to girls in high school, but who eventually comes into their own based on smarts and a killer personality. I think Jim's a fox, but his attraction, for me, is definitely rooted in his geekiness. I've never swooned harder than when I saw Jim playing Second Life and Call of Duty (the real John's no slouch in the tech department either — he's narrated and Apple TV commercials!). Sigh. Happy Valentine's Day, Fake TV Boyfriend!

Oh, I love Jim Halpert. It's so frustrating! I watch the Pam/Jim romance on The Office, and to me it's so compelling. I really started getting into The Office just this past year, even though my kickboxing instructor told me about it in 2006 and said I'd like it. I wish I'd checked it out sooner! I would love to have a Jim Halpert in my life!

Ohmigosh, I'm ALL over the Jim/Chuck sandwich idea. They're both adorable. If I have to pick though...totally going with Jim. Just out of curiousity, why do you girls not like John Krasinski? Is there some scoop I don't know about?

I'm a large John Krasinski fan, and I am sure that he was the voice for the Apple TV commercial. On my office fansite that I have joined they did an article about it once. If you listen to the old Apple TV commercial, you can hear it. And he also did the voice. Just listen, you can tell.

Can I have a Jim / Chuck sandwich or is that being greedy?

Jim Halpert is the most adorable, sweetest, tv guy ever! I've had a crush on him since the first episode of The Office.

Love me some Jim AND John. Good choice geeksugar. BTW - aistea311. John definately did the ads (I've got a copy - found it on a JKras website) not sure about the apple commercials though. Anyone know for sure?

Oh good to know I am not alone when it comes to Jim. I have just recently netflixed all the seasons and have become obsessed. I always wish he is sitting in the desk right next to me, making those adorable faces. Geeksugar, someone said that he never did narrate the or apple commercials. That the info on wiki was erroneous. I even tried looking for it on youtube but no such luck. Anyway, Halpert is the dream guy. Sweet, funny and always willing to listen. What more could a girl ask from a tall gorgeous guy?

OMG, I could not agree more. Jim Halpert is my Geeky TV crush as well. I even have a note pad at work it says I "heart" Jim and it has his pic on it. It's great for those times you need a little pick me up at work :)
