This sexy multiracial actor boasts an impressive intellectual pedigree. Born in England to a Rhodes-scholar father, Miller graduated from Princeton with a degree in English. After moving to Los Angeles in the mid ‘90s, he made guest appearances on various TV series before landing what seemed to be his big break, a role in 2003’s The Human Stain playing Anthony Hopkins' younger self, but the film went bust. In 2005, he was handpicked by Mariah Carey to appear in her “We Belong Together” video, and he credits the singer for his success. Because soon after, he landed a lead role on Prison Break, playing a tattooed hunk determined to free his wrongfully convicted brother from death row. The hit show truly proved to be his big break.
