Attention, fans of handsome fellows: It’s time to make Adam Scott a star. He is good looking! He is sardonic and funny! He is kind of everywhere! If that’s not a star-making trifecta, I don’t know what is.

The Party Down* lead has been cast on the highish-profile upcoming HBO comedy The Wonderful Maladys as Sarah Michelle Gellar’s businessman ex. I remember him best as Palek, proud recipient of a graphic HJ on Tell Me You Love Me, though I also enjoyed his performance as Veronica Mars’ scummy history teacher. He was good in The Aviator, and he was funny in Step Brothers — ugh, enough already, time to be really famous/beloved. I’m hoping Maladys will solidify his role as bonafide object of desire, but maybe I’ll have to wait for the 2010 release of his romcom with Amy Adams (Leap Year).

Who’s on Team Adam Scott with me, PopWatchers?
