About Him

Overview... big man on his high school campus. It's Jake’s senior year and even though he can squire his beautiful girlfriend Caroline in his dad’s Rolls-Royce, his life is far from perfect. He's missing one big, important thing: love. A sophomore wallflower named Sam catches his eye, but as far as he knows, she thinks he's a sleazeball.

Personality... handsome and popular, but not as confident as he lets on. He's a hopeless romantic stuck in the body of a meathead jock. "I want a serious girlfriend," he says. "Somebody I can love, that's gonna love me back. Does that make me psycho?" To his friends in the popular crowd, the answer is “yes.” But as far as Sam is concerned, that makes him the sanest guy in school. But can Jake and Sam get past their initial misunderstandings with the unlikely help of a freshman geek known only as Farmer Ted?
