An Appreciation of Zachary Levi

We don’t all pine for certain Captains of America, or dashing starfighter pilots with amazing hair. Some of us enjoy a man with a little bit of an “everyday” quality, someone who’s a little geeky, definitely handsome, and an all-around great guy. We’re speaking, of course, about Zachary Levi.

Disney fans might know him as the guy who voiced the charming Flynn Rider in Tangled, and we love him for that. But he’s so much more than your average Disney prince. So without further ado, here is an appreciation post dedicated to the one and only, Zachary Levi (yes, we’re using his full name because he has a great name).

Zachary Levi is a self-professed nerd. In fact, he’s the founder of The Nerd Machine, which he describes as an online community/website for “all things nerd.” So what exactly does he mean by that? Brace yourselves, because he’s about to drop a Disney reference and then some. “From gadgets and gizmos aplenty, to whozits and whatzits galore. Entertainment, news hardware, software, and just all around [awesomeness].”

Here he is repping The Nerd Machine:


Zachary Levi is a frequent user of social media, including Instagram, where he has really come into his own. His feed is a photo album of his work, philanthropic pursuits, and favorite pastimes.

This is him being adorable with Big Bird and Grover:

Here he is supporting the charity, Operation Smile:

Another thing we love about Zachary Levi’s Instagram is his early foray into filters. There’s something really endearing about his use of the Kelvin and Lo-Fi filters …

Using the Kelvin filter with Idris Elba on the set of Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World (he played Fandral, while Elba played Heimdall):

Using Lo-Fi at the Paralympic Games:

Most Disney fans know that Zachary Levi is also a talented singer thanks to his role as Flynn Rider. But did you know he’s so talented that he’s now a Tony nominee? Yeah, he’s accomplished and attractive.

But what we love most about Zachary Levi is his appreciation for his fans. Probably best exemplified by this tweet:


There’s really nothing more to say, so we’re just going to pump our fists that Zachary Levi exists, and continue to stalk him on social media. Oh, and we’ll leave you with this —here it comes, wait for it … the smolder:
