Sean Faris may not have achieved household celeb status at this point, but his star is rapidly ascending—as is his va va voom appeal. A decade ago, he was a cute kid appearing in such TV series as "Smallville" and One Tree Hill," before landing recurring roles on "Life As We Know It" and "Reunion."
In 2008, he landed his first lead feature film roles, in "Never Back Down" about a gritty high school fight club, and "Forever Strong," a second tough guy role; while scoring a trio of guest spots in 2010 in CW's sopping hot soap "The Vampire Diaries."
Meanwhile, Faris, now 28, buffed up and began appearing on fitness mag covers—where, natch, the gays began to sniff out this burgeoning talent and give his mojo a boost (just as The Smoking Nun is doing here and now).Faris currently has six films heading to the screen, while this Sunday, Jan. 30, he appears with Jennifer Love Hewitt and Betty White(!) in the sappy Hallmark Channel movie "The Lost Valentine." I'll be Tivo-ing!
