Yipes! Jeremy Irons played Humbert Humbert in the most recent film version of Lolita. Now, every time I look at Mike I'll have not only closet Bond villain, but creepy, pretentious, obsessive European pedophile running through my thoughts.
Okay...maybe the first three adjectives aren't too far off!
Mike just gets scarier and scarier.
Doesn't Mike look guy from The Village (now playing everywhere). Scarrrrrrrrrrrrry!
I think you're onto something. It's hard for me to picture Mike having a fairly standard upbringing. He did mention he did archery every summer from age 11-18. I can't think of a more pretentious sport. Maybe he went to boarding school (likewise, no offense to boarding schoolers)? It seems like he was missing a healthy dose of social interaction (particularly with females), otherwise he wouldn't be so sprung on Rachel so quickly. Mike clearly does not know how to have fun. Then again, neither does Rachel (unless you count getting to first base in 90 seconds). Come to think of it, they're a perfect match.

My, you guys are just precious. "No offense", but archery is a pretentious sport. "No offense", but boarding school boys lack social know-how. Sure, generalize all you want... as long as you put a "no offense" disclaimer in front, then it's okay...

Just because he's more reserved doesn't mean he gets along poorly with the dudes. And he certainly doesn't seem meek in front of Rachel... I doubt he's the type of guy starving for any and all female attention.

"No Offense".....but those who claim that archery is a pretentious sport know absolutely nothing about the sport of archery. My son was an archer in college and he and his teammates are the farthest thing from pretentious that I've ever met
Just Forting Around
I for one could care less about his skills in archery and how he got them. He simply scares the hell out of me!
Mike reminds me of the actor Scott Bairstow. He played Neve Campbell's abusive boyfriend on Party of Five. And I think he got into some trouble off screen as well.
While watching this show last night, I found it kind of weird (& distracting) that Mike's cheeks were always RED. I couldn't figure out if he's got a sunburn or if he's just one of those people who always look red!? (blushing or not...)
i think he has naturally red cheeks, but last night it looked like he got sunburnt- maybe from his outdoors date with rachel?
