Because he's portrayed his fair share of nice guys and bullies, we've decided to rank his most iconic characters on a likeability scale from zero to five Adam Scotts, five being the most likable.

Seriously, he is so attractive.

21. Matthew (Sleeping with Other People)

This piece of human garbage is, without a doubt, the worst character Adam Scott has ever played. He strings Lainey (Alison Brie) along for a DECADE and then tries to cheat on his wife with her. Also, the mustache is appalling.

20. Ted Hendricks (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty)

What kind of businessman ruthlessly bullies the people in his office? Ted is a monster and Walter deserved better.

19. Derek (Step Brothers)

No one has ever deserved to be punched out of a treehouse more. Derek is a real piece of shit, but his musical talent earns him some cred.

17. Trevor (The Good Place)

Trevor LITERALLY comes from hell. He's horrific, sexist, and clips his toenails at the damn dinner table. Luckily for him, he makes us laugh.

While he's not actively trying to screw anybody over, he's got that gruesome mustache and maniacal laugh.

14. Griffin "Griff" Hawkins (Boy Meets World)

Sure, Griff was the ultimate '90s bully, but at least he was nicer to Corey than Harley. Also, that jawline.

13. Adam Jr. (Hot Tub Time Machine 2)

In a cast of mostly horrific characters, Adam Jr. is probably the most likable. The fact that he's John Cusack's son is a fun/weird bonus.

12. Jason Fryman (Friends With Kids)

Jason was a complex guy who clearly didn't know what he wanted. He made some infuriating moves along the way, but he was a good dad and ultimately came through.

10. Ben 2.0 (Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later)

Bradley Cooper will always be the true Ben in our hearts, but Adam stepped it up and did a great job as McKinley's other half. Bonus points for playing a character named Ben opposite Amy Poehler.

9. Clyde (Bachelorette)

Admittedly, Clyde doesn't get off to a great start. He's initially a real dick to Gena AND we find out he pulled a "Damone" in high school. However, he really manages to turn it around and sings a sweet rendition of "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)".

1. Ben Wyatt (Parks and Rec)

Was there any other option for the top spot? Ben Wyatt is the nerdy husband of our dreams. He loves the early '90s, Batman, calzones, and is considered a god among the local Pawnee accountants. We love him and we like him.
