A man in uniform? We like, we like. Two uniforms? SIGH. Such is the case for actor Daniel Sunjata, who plays firefighter Franco Rivera on ‘Rescue Me’ and nurse Eli on ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’ He’s unique and exotic, and has an absolutely flawless smoldering gaze.

Sunjata is a (perfect) combination of Irish, German and African-American. In addition to that acting thing, he’s got a master’s degree in fine arts from NYU. Oh, and in high school? He was a linebacker for two state champion football teams. A (really, really hot) jack of all trades, to be sure.
