People Magazine screwed up 'Sexiest TV cast' pick

Wednesday, 15 November 2017, 03:39:33 AM. Sometimes what we need more than perfect abs and a perfect smile is someone who is willing to be in the trenches with you.
Here’s what people don’t get about women in this misogynistic, too-focused-on-body-image world of ours: We love Toby. When People magazine reveals its Sexiest Man Alive cover Wednesday, we know it will feature a photo of some chiseled, square-jawed hunk who represents what we, for years, have considered the prototype for what women want. That is because most magazine editors don’t know what women want. What women want is Toby.       Yes, that Toby, the fat guy from NBC’s “This Is Us.” The one who loves Kate, in all her overweight glory, the one who danced in a coffee shop to celebrate that he and Kate are having a baby, the one who eats and laughs heartily and makes you feel great all the time. Yes, that Toby. The one who’s funny and forgiving and understanding and long-suffering because sometimes what we need more than perfect abs and a perfect smile is someone who is willing to be in the trenches with you. And not just the usual trenches, but the ugly-cry, lost-your-job, somebody-you-don’t-even-like called-you-names-and-it-still-hurt-your-feelings trenches. When People teased us today by revealing its choice for Sexiest Television Cast, the photo featured the three hunks, Milo Ventimiglia, Justin Hartley and the genius-level talented Sterling K. Brown. But there was no Toby.  Not Chris Sullivan, but Toby, fat suit and all. Related stories: Chris Hemsworth named 'Sexiest Man Alive' What will become of Jack and Rebecca on 'This is Us?'
