At first he was just this little pipsqueak named Tommy Solomon on 3rd Rock from the Sun - a funny pipsqueak, with great comedy timing for a kid, but just a kid. Well, it's a funny thing about 13-year-olds... Four years later and suddenly they're 17. I remember the phenomenon well from high school - the short fat kid comes back from summer vacation a tall and thin babe.
Proving he's more than a pretty face, the brilliant work he did on 3rd Rock led him into some interesting theatre and movies - including the much-lauded (500) Days of Summer, opposite the even more lauded Zooey Deschanel - and I always say if you're going to be someone to watch, it doesn't hurt if you're something to look at as well.
Born on this day in 1981 he's now a completely safe age to ogle, which I'm sure I shall continue to do with impunity for many years to come...
