At first I was vaguely underwhelmed by Dylan’s appearance on New Girl last night. Where was the goofy spark that ignites fan’s passions on Teen Wolf? Where was that charismatic nutjob we’ve come to love? Where were the hijinx and pratfalls, the rubbery expressions and flailing arms? It seemed he was suffering the fate as Colton Haynes on Arrow. Outside of Teen Wolf, he just wasn’t as magnetic. Then I realized that this was Dylan O’Brien ROMANTAIC LEAD, not Dylan O’Brien, GOOFY SIDEKICK, and that’s a WHOLE DIFFERENT DYLAN. I’ve never seen this side of Dylan before, and that’s why it confused me. I imagine his management team is eager to test out this new persona, though, to see if he can pull it off. Did he pass? Can he play the LEADING MAN after his run on Teen Wolf ends? Is Dylan O’Brien a straight-up dreamboat? Or is he doomed to play wacky best friends forever?
