CRUSHWORTHY: Ramon Rodriguez from "Charlie's Angels"

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 14} 
The Latin Lover // Ramon Rodriguez 
The 32-year-old Puerto Rican actor got his big break in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, where he played the loud mouth, self-important hacker who overreacted to nearly everything. His character was a bit grating and cowardly, and not in the least bit attractive. Two years later he costarred in the pro-Army alien action film Battle Los Angeles as a stern lieutenant who goes above and beyond for his squad. I don't know if it was the uniform or the acts of courage, but he started to look a lot more appealing.

That's why I wasn't too bummed when I heard he was cast as Bosley in the recently cancelled "Charlie's Angels" series revival. The idea of it was ridiculous, especially since even this generation is accustomed to an old white guy playing the part. However, making Bosley young and attractive added an episodic romantic element to the series, which it would need to retain its female viewership. Although even that couldn't save the series, I don't think we've seen the last of Rodriguez. With every role, he gets more and more intriguing.
