The Countdown to 2017’s Sexiest Man Alive Reveal Is On! Today’s Hot Guy: Kumail Nanjiani

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: the 2017 Sexiest Man Alive will be revealed on Tuesday, Nov. 14! Ahead of the big day, we’re counting down with a handful of hot Hollywood stars who earned spots in the pages of the issue.

Sexiest Husband Kumail Nanjiani, 39, saw his star rise this year with the debut of his film The Big Sick, based on the true story of his relationship with now-wife Emily V. Gordon. But it’s not just her devotion to her — he proposed shortly after she awoke from a medically induced coma just months into their courtship — that makes him sexy, it’s his humor, too.

A tech guy on Silicon Valley, “I did have a tech job for real,” he tells PEOPLE. “For five years in Chicago. I was very bad at it.

“For me, the sexiest part about being a tech guy was leaving the job and not being a tech guy anymore. Even porns don’t have tech guy scenarios: it’s always pizza guys and plumbers. Those are sexy professions. A tech guy would just show up, say, ‘Did you try restarting it?’ and leave before anything really exciting happened. Nobody wants to see that.”

Check out yesterday’s sexy man of the day, 50 Cent. And come back to PEOPLE on Tuesday, Nov. 14, to find out who’s been crowned 2017’s Sexiest Man Alive!

Kumail Nanjiani Tells Grads To ‘Have Sex With An Immigrant’

Immigrants may feel a little tense about what’s happening in American these days, but comedian Kumail Nanjiani has a plan to make things feel a little more relaxing for everyone.

“Have sex with an immigrant,” Nanjiani told the graduates of Grinnell College in Iowa during a commencement speech. “We’re going through a tough time right now, and it would just be really great for morale.”

Nanjiani graduated from the liberal arts school in 2001. Grinnell invited him back this week to deliver the commencement address to the graduating class of 2017. During the ceremony, the school awarded Nanjiani an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters.

The star of HBO’s “Silicon Valley” opened up to the graduates about his experience moving from Pakistan to Iowa for college and how it shaped the way he moved through the world. 

“When I came to Grinnell I was a devout Muslim who had never romantically touched a girl and I was going to get a degree that guaranteed me a job,” Nanjiani said. “By the time I graduated I was basically a Rastafarian with a white American girlfriend and a philosophy degree. College changes you, is my point.”

He also offered advice on how to take on bigotry, even if it is uncomfortable.

“We cannot expect others to understand our point of view if we don’t understand theirs,” he said. “It’s uncomfortable and awkward and infuriating and it hurts your brain, but with that pain can come growth and real change.”

“Being a fish out of water is tough, but that’s how you evolve,” he added. “I think that’s scientifically accurate — I don’t know, I had a liberal arts education.”

Nanjiani advised the graduates to live with intention and not fear failure ― unless, he joked, you’re the person who created the exploding Samsung Galaxy phones.

“I never thought big picture,” Nanjiani said. “That would have overwhelming. So what I’m saying is, you can go slow. Allow your dreams and goals to change, but live an intentional life.”

He continued: “Here’s the big secret I’ve learned in the last few years: Nobody knows what they’re doing … Everybody’s winging it out there. Some people are just better at pretending to be confident because nobody’s done ― nobody’s cooked.”

Watch Nanjiani’s full commencement speech below.

Actor Kumail Nanjiani Chronicles Flier Who De-Pants Until He Deplanes

There’s an unspoken decorum in airplane cabins that keeps all passengers relatively comfortable. Some individuals, however, don’t think the rules of common courtesy apply to them.

Comedian Kumail Nanjiani, costar of the HBO series “Silicon Valley,” was recently seated near one such deplorable, who decided that a 5 1/2-hour flight is the appropriate time to strip down to your skivvies and spread eagle.

“I was on a plane a couple of days ago,” Nanjiani tweeted Wednesday. “A guy took off his jeans and lounged around in his boxers with his feet up on the wall.”

The culprit, Nanjiani later clarified, was seated at the front of the plane, “so if you walked onto the plane, you would be greeted by this defiant fleshy V.”

The man reportedly took his pants off within the first 20 minutes of the flight and had his feet up for four hours before a flight attendant asked him to put his bare legs back on the ground.

After a “40-second stare down” between the man and the attendant, the man complied, according to Nanjiani.

But only for a moment.

Nanjiani said that, after five minutes, the man thrust one foot back up against the wall, “like a fist raised against an unjust sky.”

Pants (or lack thereof) aside, Nanjiani also claimed that this man was rude to airline staff.

The man stood in front of the gate during pre-boarding for 30 minutes and, at one point, said, “I can’t wait to get in there and get my pants off,” as people in wheelchairs rolled around him, Nanjiani tweeted.

The actor also said that the man slammed his fist on the armrest if he failed to get the flight attendant’s attention during the flight.

During his tweet storm, Nanjiani called attention to the colored lights that can be seen near the man’s boxer-clad crotch, which made some of his Twitter followers believe he was on a Virgin Airlines flight.

However, they weren’t on a Virgin aircraft and those lights weren’t from the plane. The light ― which, according to Nanjiani’s video evidence, flashed various colors ― was from the man’s USB charger.

“Ppl think it’s Virgin. It’s not! His USB charger made disco lights the whole time, bathing his thighs in reds, blues, greens,” the actor explained.

Unfortunately for Nanjiani and his fellow passengers, this story did not have a happy ending, and justice was never served. 

The bare-thighed man waited until the plane had already started its descent to stand up, “in defiance of decency & lighted seatbelt signs,” and put his pants back on.

Nanjiani was understandably perplexed when he saw that the pantless perpetrator suffered no consequences after forcing people to deal with his “hairy thigh V.” 

The actor did find a little irony within the whole ordeal, specifically in the man’s choice of movie.

When fellow comedy writer Dan Harmon wondered (tweeted) whether this pants-defying man was a villain or hero, Nanjiani was quick to explain the unwritten rules of air travel.
