Jesse Metcalfe, the 32-year-old green-eyed hunk we first met in 2004 as Gabrielle's lover in season one of "Desperate Housewives," has had a spotty career since, leading in the teen flick "John Tucker Must Die" in 2006 and then, except for a few roles on TV and in movies that failed to connect on a mass-appeal basis, seemingly disappearing from the screen.
But shooting began last month in Texas for a TNT remake of nighttime '80s' soap "Dallas," in which Metcalfe will play Christopher, the grown-up son of Bobby and Pam Ewing. Larry Hagman and Patrick Duffy have both signed on to reprise their roles as J.R. and Bobby, respectively. If the telecast is anything like the original, we should be seeing plenty of Jesse sans a shirt. Yee haw!
