Birthday: Apr 8, 1981

Birthplace: Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada

Taylor Kitsch became television's latest teenage bad-boy with the premiere of NBC's "Friday Night Lights" (2006-2011), playing a small-town Texas football team's brooding yet charismatic ne'er-do-well. A former minor-league athlete himself, Kitsch's circumspect route to stardom took him from the hockey rinks of British Columbia to sleeping on New York subways to the pivotal role of the swashbuckling superhero Gambit in the 2009 summer blockbuster entry "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." His "Friday Night Lights" boss, producer-writer Peter Berg, went on to proclaim Kitsch "a ridiculous, unreal mix of acting talent and outrageous good looks" - a sentiment few people could argue with as the heartthrob continued to win over fans on both the big and small screen.
