Many unaffiliated viewers of the new Yale admissions material are wondering about the names that go along with the smiling, singing faces of Yale. Given that the list of actors is fairly unhelpful for anyone looking to make “Student in Dean’s Office” into the next Sam Tsui, we’ve compiled a photographic index.

There you have it, friends. We knew them before they were famous. Another disclaimer: The Bullblog is not responsible for any incidents of stalking that may result from this post. But we damn well better get tickets to all the soon-to-be sold-out JAW shows.
