CRUSHWORTHY: Christopher Gorham from "Covert Affairs"
Why he's Crushworthy: Gorham's awe-shucks demeanor has always been one of his greatest selling points. He usually plays the guy you want to be best friends with, because he's too-good-to-be true—bashful and sweet, but courageous. In his new series, however, he's stepping into more of a self-assured role. He's no longer push-over Henry. He's confident. He's stubborn. He's a trained government agent without all the clumsiness and foibles. Sure, he's technically the computer guy, but you get the feeling that even though he's blind, he could totally kick your ass. He's like the modern spy, but still suave, persuasive, and lethal.
Where you can see him next: He's starring in the rom-com My Girlfriend's Boyfriend with Alyssa Milano, the rom-com Answer This with Arielle Kebbel (The Grudge 2), the adventure comedy Somebody's Hero, and the thriller The Ledge with Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Terrence Howard, and Charlie Hunnam ("Sons of Anarchy").
