On CNN last night, Jason Carroll was reporting from some nowhere town where hillbillies stay to die on Anderson Cooper 360. He looked like Grace Jones circa 1985 in the Bond film A View to a Kill. He wore a double-breasted trench coat over a black turtle-neck lifted up by his supermodel cheekbones.

I think Andy and his producers like that Jason is a bigger dandy than he is. I’m not saying that Andy is femme. But you’ve got to be a bit of a dandy to pull off sitting in for Regis on Live With Regis and Kelly when Mr. Philbin is away doing whatever he does to stay young. Andy pulls that stint off perfectly.
