Much, much more interesting (to me, anyway) is Robert Buckley, turning the big three-0 this week. Stunning, yummy, hotsie-totsie, humina-humina are a few of the more worksafe terms that come to mind when I look at him. I think I first became aware of him because of Lipstick Jungle. I didn't watch it, but his pictures were all over the internet. Yowza! Then he did Flirting with Forty, and I was in love. Or something a bit more carnal. Now Robert's a regular on One Tree Hill, where he sort of replaced the Chad.
A plethora of great photos can be found at Just Jared. This interview while he was doing Lipstick Jungle reveals he was an economics major, which means he's smart as well as hunky. It also shows his sly sarcasm. Which all amps the sexy in my book. An appreciation of much of his body of work can be found here.
Then in 2005 he got his film break, appearing in DeCoteau's Killer Bash. He showed off the contractually obligated amount of skin required by any young man in a Decoteau film. Right after that, he was in Bloody Mary, and showed off almost everything. The things a starving young actor will do for a part. After that, his film work was almost exclusively in the horror genre. Then along came Glee, and the rest is history.
