Like a overgrown teenager in Men's formalwear, George Christopher is highly impulsive and easily influenced. He loves to go on little adventures with the much younger Jonathon Ames, who fancies himself a private investigator, his qualifications only existing in the form of the romantically-noirish novels he reads. While he presents himself as a father figure for Ames, he also comes off as a younger brother figure, smoking pot and having promiscuous sex because it makes him feel much younger than he is. While Christopher is also the editor for a magazine in which he regrets not abusing his media presence and using it as a platform for his immaturity (he slings infactual insults at his archnemesis, who happens to be courting his ex-wife, whom he ultimately has an affair with). A revealing moment comes when the magazine mandates company-wide drug-testing, and he scrounges around for some clean urine to borrow.
