25 Inimitable Men 3/25
Jim Halpert (The Office)
A prankster with an absolute heart of gold and wisdom that’s through the moon? Where can you go wrong? Perhaps in certain places but certainly not with The Office’s Jim Halpert — especially with his ridiculously distinct sense of humor. Jim plays a crucial role in making The Office extraordinary and it’s essentially due to the significant growth his character experiences in his time working at Dunder Mifflin. In a number of ways, we saw a lot of greatness through his eyes, it was through his perspective where we were able to understand characters a little bit more because his means of description weren’t always sugar-coated — they were just incredibly honest. And honesty, plus a knack for laugher is easily a great combination for a man. Jim Halpert is a character you don’t expect to fall in love with, that’s why when it happens and you’re able to find a sense of comfort through his sincerity, it’s simple to understand how easily he cares for those around him, and how ardently he values love above all things.
