                I’m sorry I have to say this, Whenever I see Adam, I can’t decide wether he’s good looking or not. I know I shouldn’t judge his appearance.

                                        James Corden just kept getting fatter . He kinda looks like barney the dinosaur in that purple suit. Only not as intelligent.

                                                  I get why Kieran looks like his brother, but why does he give such strong Lin Manuel vibes at the same time? Is it the expression of interested bewilderment? The floppy hair?
