While blessed with leading-man looks, this up-and-coming actor is usually cast as the star's pal or the spurned boyfriend. After making an auspicious film debut as a sensitive soldier in 2000's Tigerland, he earned hisses as the heroine's jerk of an ex in Legally Blonde. In the '00s, Davis continued to appear in studio movies (a pro football player in Blue Crush, a vampire hunter in the stinker BloodRayne) but fared better in indies (a gay cowboy in Lone Star State of Mind, a romantically challenged New Yorker in Heights). He made the jump to the small screen when he landed the gig as the title character's self-involved best buddy on the short-lived dramedy What About Brian?, and has appeared on Damages and Vampire Diaries.
