    It’s crazy, I’ve seen this guy in so many series and I’ve never liked his characters … and I don’t even find him attractive lol

    Take him and Mark Pellegrino’s CV and basically you can recap all tv shows for the past 15 years.

    I liked him in Fairly Legal. I don’t blame him for his milk-toast character in Castle.
