Travis Fimmel made EW's It List

Age 23

Why Him? It wasn't enough that the Calvin Klein model's print ads -- that hair! those abs! -- landed him a permanent spot on cubicle walls nationwide. Now the Australian-born Fimmel has snagged the dialogue-light lead role in The WB's fall drama ''Tarzan and Jane'' with nary an acting gig under his elastic waistband.

Creative Crutch ''I need to have a few drinks. The photo shoots are wack, man!''

And the Libation of Choice Would Be... ''I'm not picky.''

On the Dating Life of a Pinup ''Ah, f---, man, I hate these questions. It can go both ways. It's harder. At the same time, I get laid more.''

Something We'd Be Surprised to Hear About Him ''Nothing, really.''

Number of Times He Hits the Gym a Week ''I don't go to the gym.''

He's Lying, Right? ''No! I haven't gone since I was about 17.''

So, What's the Secret? ''That's a good question, man.''

Boxers or Briefs? ''Let's go back to 'Tarzan,' man.''

Next ''Tarzan'''s first season.
