Proof that good looks alone aren't everything, this strikingly gorgeous actor spent a number of years toiling in an off-Broadway theater before snagging his breakthrough role as an ex-con trying to go straight in the 2002 comedy Barbershop. Although he subsequently appeared in a string of movies, including the Barbershop sequel, action flicks 2 Fast 2 Furious and Never Die Alone, and Seven Pounds, TV is where Ealy proved he was much more than a pretty face. He seduced audiences---not to mention his leading lady, Halle Berry---as a sexy but troubled drifter in the 2005 TV-movie Their Eyes Were Watching God, and then struck fear in viewers' hearts as a Muslim FBI agent who infiltrates a terrorist group in the miniseries Sleeper Cell. Showtime bought the program back in 2006, and Ealy earned a Golden Globe nod for his riveting performance. In 2009, he was cast as a CIA agent in ABC's sci-fi thriller FlashFoward, which garnered generally favorable reviews and a devoted fan base but was canceled after one season. Ealy announced a return to Showtime in 2010 when he signed on to play a love interest for Natascha McElhone's character in a multi-episode arc on the fourth season of Californication.
