Chris Messina Is Everywhere and We’re Totally Okay With That – The Daily Swoon
Actor Chris Messina is everywhere these days, so it makes sense that he's found his way into our hearts. We think he's pretty swoon-worthy -- and we've gathered some photographic evidence to prove it.
Dude is all over the damned place. Turn on your TV, he's there on 'The Mindy Project' and HBO's 'The Newsroom.' Go to the movies and you can see him in 'Argo' alongside fellow cutie Ben Affleck, and in 'Celeste and Jesse Forever' with Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg.
And yeah, we thought he was cute the whole time, and Hollywood certainly agrees or they wouldn't keep rubbing him in our faces every other week (srsly, there's nowhere this guy isn't lately). But it was in his new movie, an independent drama called '28 Hotel Rooms,' that we really started to swoon.
Sure, it helps that he's shirtless/half-naked/naked for most of it, but he's also so funny and tender and he just makes us wish he was our boyfriend.
The film follows a man and a woman as they meet in various New York hotel rooms to carry on an adulterous relationship, and okay, that sounds really wrong, but trust us, by the end of this movie you'll be thinking two things. First, you'll really want these two people to be together forever, and second, you'll really enjoy Chris Messina half-naked so much that you'll never be able to look at him with clothes on the same way again.
Here he is taking his pants off, in case you were wondering what that looked like (you were, and this is okay):
What he looks like in bed, being all charming and likable:
This is what it would look like to wake up next to him -- not bad, right?

And he can climb rope. This means he has incredible upper-body strength. We don't even need to tell you why this is a good thing:
