George Eads made EW's It ListAge 36
Why Him? After languishing in flops like The WB's ''Savannah'' and CBS' short-lived ''Grapevine,'' the square-jawed Texan (hey, ''Batman 5'' producers: look no further) is now hands down the coolest cat on ''CSI.''
Favorite Actor ''Brad Pitt's the s---. Quit playa-hatin'! Brad Pitt is the man, period. I give it up.''
Worst Job ''I got caught shoplifting a cap gun at a TG&Y [discount store] when I was a kid. So I had to work there for free for a couple weeks. One night the boss gave me a metal scraper and he said, 'See all that gum on the floor?'''
If He Weren't Acting, He'd Be... ''Working for Marvel as a comic-book artist.''
Addiction ''Velveeta cheese. 'Cause if you mix it with Ro*Tel [canned tomatoes] you can make some mean queso.''
Knew He'd Made It When... ''I was deep, deep, deep in the rain forest in Spain, and these two old ladies were looking in the souvenir window and they didn't speak a word of English, and they said 'CSI' and pointed at me.''
Next More fun with cadavers on season 4 of ''CSI.''
