"And how much everyone was in love with him and wanted to find a guy like Jess. He was kind of trouble, you know."

Even though the 39-year-old actor knew his character was trouble, he wasn't oblivious to his physical appeal.

"He had good hair. He had that pompadour thing going, and he had dope jackets, and he always had a book in his back pocket."
