    2. Jon Stewart - can't get enough.
    3. My new entry - Jeff Daniels. Well, really, Will McAvoy, because I'm loving that character to death on The Newsroom!

    Ladies? I'll be back to you on that one.

  11. OK, babes. This was a bit more difficult.

    Maggie Smith. Not a glamorous babe, but wickedly funny, I'd like to have tea with her.
    Meryl Streep, quite possibly the best actress of our time.
    Christina Hendricks, because I had to pick at least one "babe" babe.

    And I'd pick Eleanor Roosevelt, too, if dead women were allowed.
