The case for Jack McFarland's Coffee Bender
We've all been there — the local barista with a twinkle in his/her eye and some flirty banter, cute with a capital "Q," so we keep going back. Count on Jack to turn a barista crush into an over-caffeinated performance for his friends, complete with a "Mr. Roboto" reference AND a plug for Jack 2000. Sean Hayes got a lot of crap for playing Jack like a complete cartoon, but he doesn't get enough credit for playing Jack like a complete cartoon.
