His approval ratings may be tanking in Pennsylvania, but Gov. Rendell is top-of-the-charts in the eyes of Esquire. The magazine has included Rendell in its "World's 75 Best People" list. He joins actors Matt Damon and Robert Duvall, Bill and Hillary Clinton, investor Warren Buffett, and cartoon character Lisa Simpson. Here's how Esquire described its criteria: "There are many more do-gooders, but these particular men and women - because of their talent, achievements, virtue, and two other essential qualifications (having to do with puppies and drinking)

We all know the "which one does not belong" test. You're shown four items and asked to choose which is anomalous - for instance, a cow, a sheep, a dog and an MX missile. Now, take a test from the current Esquire. The cover announced: "Free! Special Commemorative Bimbo Poster Inside!" The women portrayed by look-alikes were Jessica Hahn, Fawn Hall, Tammy Faye Bakker and Donna Rice. Which one does not belong? Strictly speaking, two of them don't. Tammy Faye Bakker may look the part, but we know nothing about her to suggest that she's a "woman of easy morals.

Watch out for the new new wave. In the September issue of Esquire - the one with Robert Redford's leathery, sun-burnished mug staring pensively from the cover - screenwriter L.M. Kit Carson has come up with a gimmicky but nonetheless noteworthy roster of rising film-biz stars - directors, writers, actors and producers. These are folks, says Carson in his intro, who come out of the same new independent tradition as the Coen Brothers, Steven Soderbergh, Gus Van Sant, Spike Lee and John Turturro, and who form "a kind of shadow studio system.

Gentlemen, re-start your engines. Unlock your doors, unbolt your windows, unstrap those steel jocks and quit looking over your shoulders. Lorena's gotten rewired and Esquire magazine says there's something going on that you're going to find very interesting - something called "Do Me" feminism. According to its February issue, young women are no longer obsessing about rape and harassment and abortion rights. Instead, they've embraced a feminism that's not man-hating or castrating but proudly pro-sexual.

She's Allegra Coleman, the drop-dead gorgeous, midriff-baring, blond bombshell on the cover of this month's Esquire, the aspiring actress shown playing with Hollywood hotshots. Trouble is, nobody seems to have heard of her. There's good reason - Allegra Coleman is actually Ali Larter, 20, of Cherry Hill, an aspiring actress who answered a casting call in New York for a spoof on celebrity journalism. "They shot me for the cover, but the story came before me," said Larter, who's touted on the Esquire cover as "Hollywood's Next Dream Girl.

About three years ago, against my good judgment, I took on a monthly sports column for Esquire magazine. It was against my judgment because I did not like Phillip Moffitt, who owns the magazine, and I did not like the magazine's editor. And I wasn't too crazy about the magazine itself. Esquire, of course, has been a lot of different magazines in the last 50 years. Once, under a man named Arnold Gingrich, it was the best magazine to write for in America, and the best magazine to read.

It took her seven long years. Seven painful, miserable, torturous years, but Scarlett Johansson , 28, finally has returned to her rightful place atop Esquire's "Sexiest Woman Alive" list. She's the only woman to wear the crown twice. Scar-Jo, who split with Ryan Reynolds in 2010, plans to take French journalist man Romain Dauriac as her second (and one hopes, last) husband.

'I don't feel comfortable killing people unless I have to," says Scary Mob Guy No. 1 to Scary Mob Guy No. 2. It's a typical scene from Esquire Network's brilliant, mordant crime dramedy Spotless .

PHILLY-BASED NFL agent Ed Wasielewski, who heads what he acknowledges is a "boutique" agency, EMG Sports, gains a higher national profile starting Tuesday with the debut of "The Agent," an Esquire Network series that focuses on four people plying their trade in the sport that obsesses much of America. Wasielewski and New York-based producer Amani Martin came up with the concept, Wasielewski said. As part of their pitch, they used a Daily News story written three years ago, in which Zach Berman, now with the Inquirer, shadowed Wasielewski during the 2012 NFL draft.

He said no to Seinfeld! Chris Rock coulda been the next David Letterman . Comedy god Jerry Seinfeld tells Esquire he tried to persuade Rock to take Letterman's job once the old feller retired. "Absolutely no possible way," Rock told him. Rock's problem? He didn't want to have to sit in a makeup chair day after day. A silly reason, right? Seinfeld thought so.

This is the year of the horse. Not last year. Not next year. HBO was guilty of premature exploitation when it bankrolled a bleak look at horse racing in 2012. Called it "Luck. " Featured real actors, including Dustin Hoffman and Nick Nolte, playing fictional racetrackers. HBO put it down before the first season reached the finish line. Left three dead horses and a baffled audience in its cluttered wake. Now, here comes Esquire Network with a show called "Horseplayers" on Tuesday nights at 10. Real people looking and sounding like fictional gamblers, a community theater version of "Guys and Dolls" without the music.

Mehmet Oz's followers believe he is a trustworthy, serious-minded (and hot) physician. His equally fervent flock of critics say he is a fad-foisting, ratings-grubbing (and smart) TV celebrity. In the 10 years since Oprah dubbed him "America's Doctor," the 53-year-old Oz has shown he is comfortable in both roles. "I just absolutely like him," said Maria Southard, 57, a food-service supervisor in the Philadelphia public schools. "I believe what he says and repeat it at home and work.
