CRUSHWORTHY: Christopher Gorham from "Covert Affairs"

Where you've seen him: As the main character's bff on "Popular," the nerd-turned-spy in the short-lived "Jake 2.0," the adorable accountant on "Ugly Betty," and most recently the blind handler on USA's "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").


  1. Ummm, his character in Popular was NOT gay! He did play a gay teen in another old series though: Party of Five. But it was only a minor role. And if you want to see a totally different side of him you should watch Harper's Island. I take it you didn't watch it because you didn't mention it. It will shock you, believe me! He will shock you! Crushworthy? Totally! ;)

  2. sorry that was lazy googling on my part.

  3. Ehh, it happens. I know all the details because I'm a crazy fangirl LOL
