Jon Tenney is playing the field these days by appearing in The Closer as Brenda Leigh Johnson’s husband Special Agent Fritz Howard and at the same time playing Dr. Simon Craig, Sally Field’s love interest, on Brothers and Sisters. Tenney studied philosophy and theater at Juilliard and has been a steady force in Hollywood TV since the 80’s. He was once married to Desperate Housewives star Terri Hatcher.
Rob Lowe was unquestionably an 80’s movie star as part of the famed Brat Pack with Emilio Esteves, Judd Nelson, Charles Sheen and others. His career took a nose dive toward the end of the 80’s when a sex tape emerged with Lowe and a minor. He returned to TV in the West Wing, then left for two unsuccessful pilots. For one of those pilots, he turned down the role of Dr. Derek Shepherd on Grey’s Anatomy. He’s back strong now as a regular as Senator Robert McCallister on Brothes and Sisters.
Shirtless Gilles Marini has been heating things up as Luke (or is it Luc) on Brothers and Sisters lately. The Walkers are in full lust over the former Dancing With the Stars and Sex in the City actor. I think even Justin is starting to cave. Though I don’t think ABC will give him the same full-frontal naked opportunities that Sex in the City gave him, directors are definitely taking advantage of his killer body.
Welsh actor Matthew Rhys, better known as Kevin Walker on Brothers and Sisters, was rumored to date Sienna Miller. Scuttlebutt says Balthazar Getty stole Sienna and soon after left his wife to be with her. There was tension on the set, and Getty’s character, Tommy, is now mostly an off-screen reference but will be a recurring character.
Luke Macfarlane plays Scotty Wandell, husband of Matthew Rhys’s character Kevin Walker, on ABC’s Brothers and Sisters. Shirtless Luke Macfarlane has a strong theater background and studied acting at Juliard. He also has a twin sister, Ruth.
