Hi, I'm Nicholas.
I love Mad Men.

John Mayer has a lyric that goes “I wish there was an over-the-counter drug for my loneliness. FOR MY LONELINESS!” I can’t stop thinking about him saying that in earnest to a therapist who is just trying to keep it together. I’m going to challenge myself to slip it into a conversation. I want to do a joyful painting of how that lyric makes me feel. I want John to sell the rights to that song to an anti-depressant medication so the commercial starts and that lyric plays and then the guy from the All State commercials says “Now there is, John. It’s called ‘Artaxal,’ and I think you’ll find it’s what’s been missing.” I want to hear Tracey Morgan read that lyric as Tracey Jordan. I want John to get married and in his vows say “I thought I wanted an over-the-counter drug for my loneliness, for my loneliness, but really all I needed was you, by my side, Lana del Ray or whatever.” This lyric is the best thing to happen to me in such a long time.

I prefer English to American English. Don’t get me wrong, I despise the monarchy, but the subtle differences make it a more beautiful language.

When will we know who our Margo is going to be?!?!?

Since I’m an executive producer on the Paper Towns movie, I actually have quite a bit more say in casting than I did for The Fault in Our Stars (although I think the TFIOS cast is perfect).

Anyway, that’s why I’m able to announce today that I John Green will play the role of Margo Roth Spiegelman in the movie adaptation of Paper Towns. 

It just makes sense: I’m familiar with the material; my (deleted) role in TFIOS as “Girl’s Father” was a (deleted) national treasure; Nat Wolff is already in love with me; etc.

We hope to make more casting announcements soon.
