Michael Ealy, Almost Human
How You Know Him: Fans last saw him playing one-half of a dysfunctional (but fun!) detective duo on the short-lived Common Law, but he's also known for his roles on FlashForward and The Good Wife.
The New Role: Ealy might become the first actor to want to be described as robotic. That's because on Almost Human, he plays a cyborg cop that's able to understand the emotions of his human partner (Karl Urban) and others.
