Warning: Slight Spoilers discussed

A few things you need to know about the CW’s Ringer: 1) It allows Sarah Michelle Gellar to finally return to primetime; 2) SMG takes on the big challenge of playing twins; 3) The pilot set up some good stuff, so there’s definitely potential for greatness; 4) The cast is stellar; and 5) Speaking of the cast, the guys of Ringer are complete, utter babes. Like seriously hot. So they definitely fit right in on the CW — probably the most beautiful network in all of TV.At the center of the show are these twin sisters — Bridget Kelly and Siobhan Martin — but they have these various guys orbiting them in really fascinating ways. These actors are a big part of why Ringer is must see — in more ways than one.

The Gorgeous Guys of Ringer

Actor: Ioan Gruffudd of the Fantastic Four films; the Horatio Hornblower series of British TV movies; and he had a memorable cameo in this summer’s blockbuster comedy, Horrible Bosses
Ringer Character: Andrew Martin, Siobhan’s husband
Ringer Assessment: It is pretty clear from the beginning that Andrew and Siobhan’s marriage is icy at best. There isn’t much of a marriage there at all, to be honest. We get the picture from the moment Bridget takes Siobhan’s place. It’s quite interesting to see how the dynamics quickly change. Gellar and Gruffudd have an instant chemistry and I look forward to seeing how this relationship develops over the course of the season.
The Crush Factor: Gruffudd is highly crush-able; he adds a heavy dose of class to the mix. It’s kind of an old school Hollywood type of class, which I think is cool. He’s dashing; looks great in a tux; and injects his Ringer character with this mysterious quality. And mysterious = an abundant amount of sexiness in my book. Love his presence on this show.

Actor: Kristoffer Polaha of the short-lived (but wonderful) CW series, Life Unexpected
Ringer Character: Henry Butler, the husband of Siobhan’s best friend. Oh and he’s having an affair with Siobhan.
Ringer Assessment: This affair helps ratchet up the drama in a big, big way. It’s definitely an interesting wrinkle for Bridget to have to figure out immediately after she takes over her twin’s life. Poor, poor Bridget. Her continual deception means she has so many elements to watch out for; and they all serve as serious threats to her very existence.
The Crush Factor: It was his stint as Baze on Life Unexpected that really clued me into the wonderful ways of Polaha. He’s adorably sexy. And cool. He’s got this laid back vibe combined with drop dead gorgeous looks. That’s a killer combination in my book.

Actor: Nestor Carbonell of Lost, Cane, Suddenly Susan and The Tick
Ringer Character: FBI Agent Victor Machado
Ringer Assessment: This FBI Agent is charged with protecting Bridget and delivering her to the court house where she’s set to testify against a mob boss. Easier said than done. Unfortunately for Victor, Bridget disappears, leaving him to work overtime to find her.
The Crush Factor: My Nestor Carbonell crush started way back in his Suddenly Susan days. It’s true. The smoldering actor is simply stunning on every level and anytime he’s part of a show it’s a good bet that I’ll be watching.

Actor: Mike Colter of The Good Wife and the HBO movie Taking Chance
Ringer Character: Malcolm Ward, Bridget’s Narcotics Anonymous sponsor
Ringer Assessment: I’d definitely like to see more of Malcolm as the series continues; hopefully they’ll find seamless ways of including him in the action. I really like that he’s someone who’s tied to Bridget as opposed to Siobhan. And Colter and Gellar share a really nice chemistry in their scenes together.
The Crush Factor: First of all, I had been trying to figure out where I knew this guy from — I knew I had seen him recently on my small screen. And then I figured out why he was so familiar. He’s the drug kingpin Lemond Bishop from CBS’ The Good Wife!!!! Colter is excellent on that legal drama. As Malcolm Ward, Colter plays Ward as this quiet, confident individual who has Bridget’s back. He’s this solid, comforting presence and he’s freakin’ hot too. Beyond gorgeous. Of course, we don’t know much about Malcolm at this point; I’m wondering where his story will go. Anything can happen.

Ringer airs Tuesdays on The CW at 9/8C
