CRUSHWORTHY: Jeremy Sisto from "Suburgatory"

This year has blessed us with some seriously crushworthy guys. So to countdown the 25 days until Christmas, each day I'll put a spotlight on one actor we wish we could catch under the mistletoe. In this case, Santa rewards the naughty and nice.

{DAY 1}
 The DILF // Jeremy Sisto
Rolliinnng with the homiieesss. Sorry I just had to. To the generation that's oblivious as to what I just referenced, fear not. I shall enlighten you. Back in ye ole nineteen ninety five, there was this girly teen comedy called Clueless about a dense rich girl who liked to play matchmaker and OH MY GOD was that movie a reinterpretation of Jane Austen's Emma? Sorry, brain spasm. Anyway, Sisto here played the super hot popular guy who turned out to be incredibly superficial and kind of a rape-y douche. It was Sisto's breakout role and he's been playing morally ambiguous guys ever since. The most recent of which was on "Law & Order" as a lead detective. Thankfully, the TV gods released him from that serialized murder mystery dungeon so that he could do the unexpected, and star in a family comedy on ABC. More than 15 years later, I can assure you, fans never would've guessed that Sisto would one day pull-off playing the single dad of a rebellious New Yorker in the mecca of manufactured homogenization that is the suburbs. They'll be most surprised by how funny Sisto is. Who knew he had comic timing? Who knew he could believably scold a teenage girl while still maintaining his smoldering good looks. Maybe it's the lumberjack beard or the unsuspecting baritone voice that escapes his lips or his deadpan delivery, but I would consider taking out two mortgages if it meant living next door to him.
