Manny Jacinto, AKA Jason From ‘The Good Place’ Is a Hot Environmentalist

Friends, my love for Jason on The Good Place is well documented, by me, on this very site. Jason is my everything on television at this moment, and I’m not really ready to give him up when the series ends next year. However, I could be dissuaded because it turns out Manny Jancinto, who plays him, is super-hot and an environmentalist, who protested climate change inaction this week, and honestly? Yes. To all of this:

Wait, here’s another picture for all of us to cheer:

Did you see this one, too?

One, more because this is truly the good fight:

I most definitely just sighed writing that just now because while Jason is my everything on television (have I said that enough? I really love Jason Mendoza, people) Manny Jacinto is the whole package, isn’t he? A dude who is willing to get arrested to protest something that he believes in, while also looking very, very, very ridiculously handsome doing it.

Now, I could contextualize this with a joke, as is my wont but honestly, I am just cat-heart eyes for Manny right now. You know, like this: 😻 😻 😻.

Obviously the message is more important than how good people look protesting the horrible inaction of this ridiculous sham of an administration. But, like, guys— it’s been a long week. I’m tired. I’ve been tired since election night 2016. Climate change is Threat Level Midnight for all of humanity and it freaks me out, a lot. So, because I’m tired and kind of burnt out on the evil chaos that plagues the good side, I figure we’re all smart people here and know what’s going on. So, it’s OK to sometimes leave the serious stuff for Monday and just, you know, decompress on the weekend and give a hearty thumbs up and a well-earned “nicccce” to Manny Jacinto and call it a day, for today. That cool?


If you needed any more proof that he’s a good egg, with a good head on his shoulders, I will just leave you with this proof, friends. He, like the rest of us, know that D’arcy Carden is one of the best talents working today, and celebrates her thusly:

Manny Jacinto—you may not be Jason Mendoza, but I strongly suspect that perhaps you are better than DJ Music from Tampa, Florida. 😻
