Among the many things I love about Parks and Recreation is Mr. Ben Wyatt. His facial expressions are the best. Here’s a handy guide to his beautiful emotive face, ranging from geeking out, stressing over having triplets, and wrongly never understanding the appeal of Li’l Sebastian.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not


  • I didn't realize that the Letters to Cleo shirt was not only a callback, but what he wore every time he was unemployed and sad. Way to earn that Kay Hanley moment, show!

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Missing Inception-geeking Ben Wyatt, but you gave us StarWars geeking Ben Wyatt so I'm ok. Also, BEN WYATT.

  • Dumily

    I believe you forgot "Boom! Pregnant."

  • chanohack

    My favorite is his "What's going on" face when he walks into Ron's office and sees him holding a saw.

  • emmalita

    Ben confused/disturbed by people might be my favorite Ben, it gets a lot of competition from nerding out Ben. The time period when he lived with April and Andy was so rich in reaction shots.

  • Scruffy, Letters to Cleo t-shirt wearing Ben really speaks to the 90's teenager in me. She's totally swooning.

  • emmalita

    Thanks Nadia, this list ought to keep me going through the weekend.

  • TacoBellRey

    If someone can find me a mixture between Ben Wyatt

    and Andy Dwyer, I'll be set for life.

  • emmalita

    That's also not a dog, because Andy Dwyer is essentially a puppy.

  • TacoBellRey

    Agreed. I'm a dog person, but not that kind of dog person.

  • Billybob

    Also included in this post: A reminder to people like me that his Letters To Cleo fixation was not made up for the season six finale.

    Seriously, I had never noticed that T-shirt before, and now it appears to have always been his standard crazywear.

  • Jules

    This guide completes a part of me that I didn't even know needed completing. I thought all through last night's finale that Ben/Ben's faces were at top notch performance levels. I love his face (and the rest of him) so hard.

  • emilya

    one of my best friends LURVES ben wyatt and i just sent her this page. i think it's safe to say i won the birthday gift competition this year.

  • foca9

    I love Ben Wyatt, because he essentially me—the character I've ever encountered whose personality is closest to mine.

    I just wish I had Adam Scott’s looks.

  • stella

    Well..off to have a parks and rec marathon. This is gonna be an awesome friday night.

  • InternetMagpie

    Ben Wyatt and Coach Taylor have the most expressive hair in all of television.

  • ljridley

    I love how expressive his hair is. Ben Wyatt's hair is the best. Followed closely by Ben Wyatt himself, of course.

  • Erin S

    The whole time I was scrolling, I was waiting for "Ben Wyatt being terrified of cops." Now that I've found it, I'm going to go ahead and start again from the top.

  • I love that Ben loves Letters To Cleo.

    It's both perfectly random AND appropriate.

  • Monica

    I'll be in my bunk.

  • Jules

    Seconded.

  • Parsnip

    I love me some Ben Wyatt, especially when he geeks out.
