Why he's Crushworthy: For a first time lead actor, Rosen mastered one of the most important requirements of a leading male: he captured your attention and he kept it. You wanted him in every scene, you wanted to know his story, and when the film ended, you wanted to now where he was going. While you might credit the script for that, which he co-wrote, I can assure you that Rosen was just as interesting during silent moments, where he had you hanging on his last incomplete syllable. Despite his build and army background, he managed to make his character seem fragile, awkward, and vulnerable, even after a bar room brawl. He was more than sensitive. He was an open book.
Where you can see him next: The romantic dramedy The Oranges with Hugh Laurie, Leighton Meester ("Gossip Girl" and The Roommate), Allison Janney, Oliver Platt, Catherine Keener, Adam Brody, and Alia Shawkat ("Arrested Development" and Whip It).
