Here’s 18 reasons why Rami Malek is bae:




1. First thing’s first: those eyes

2. His humble roots




Abu Malek use to be a tour guide in Egypt and then became a door-to-door insurance salesmen upon moving to the States.




3. He used to make falafel and shawarma




While trying to kickstart his acting career, Rami was making grub at shawarma joint. Rami, you can deliver falafel to our place any time 😉

13. He’s played Arab/Egyptian roles






14. As well as diverse characters




Taking an opportunity and, ultimately, a form of responsibility, to diversify Hollywood. While taking on Arab and Egyptian roles is a phenomenal step for Arabs being portrayed by actual Arabs in tinseltown, Malek has taken on non-Arab roles, proving that talent and not race is what matters in acting.




15. He takes pictures like an Arab




Posing near greenery pretending not to notice the camera, how Arab of you, Rami. See, he doesn’t mind some bush.




16. He’s old school

“Everything has become so easy. It’s great that it’s at your fingertips, but I miss those good old days. And we’re connected, but it can be very alienating. There is this distance between all of us because we’re speaking to each other through cameras and monitors and icons and emojis.”




17. He’s got moves, too






18. Did we mention he’s flaming hot?

Rami, will you marry us?
