Don’t be surprised if new TV hottie Alan Ritchson looks familiar. He started off his career behind the camera as a model for Abercrombie and Fitch as well as Internatinal Jock. He moved on to TV as a contestant on America Idol but didn’t make it past the top 87. He did land some guest spot roles on shows like Smallville and as a dead guy on CSI: Miami. His big break has come with Spike TV’s Blue Mountain State, though, where he plays college freshman Thad Castle.
