    • There’s nothing wrong with his hair. I actually like it. It gives him the option to do different styles.

  • I might actually have to watch The River if it’s going to have Scott Michael Foster AND Paul Blackthorne.

    P.S. I agree about the haircut. At the very least, put it in a nice updo…HAH!

  • My original thought was “boy is that an ugly girl”… and I adored him on Greek and Parenthood; however, it’s perfect hair for The River, maybe a little pony tail action…
