No F-ing way! Jake is a fox/babe! I always found Joe Namath to be one ugly F-er -- even as a kid. The only thing georgious about him is his voice. I also never thought Joe Namath had that great a body either.I'll be they'll have to put ugly-looking prosthetics on Jakes' georgious face just to make him appear more ugly like this Dufus! Jake -- for the love of sexy actors by all of us females (doesn't matter if we're cute or not at this time), please don't sacrifice your cutie-pie looks to look like an orangatuan!LRNWest Allis, WI (Milwaukee area)
