Robert Buckley's face and personality have not only made him a popular staple on several TV shows lately ("One Tree Hill" and the canceled viewer faves "Privileged" and "Lipstick Jungle," to name a few), but also one of the choice babes working in Hollywood today. Plus, it doesn't hurt that he's not scared to disrobe on some of the most intriguing shows with some of the prettiest girls on TV (yes, that was him wooing Heather Locklear in Lifetime's "Flirting with Forty"). So, we decided to nominate Robert as this week's Hump Day Hottie to get to know the man behind the washboard abs.
Press play on the video below to see more of Robert, and then keep reading for more details about him.
Vital Stats: The 28-year-old SoCal native was surprisingly kind of a bookworm in school. He admittedly loved math growing up and studied economics in college. "I grew up a bit of a math nerd," he told us. "I don’t remember much about my college training, except at parties I can do quick arithmetic like Rain Man."
And in case you're wondering, Robert is looking for love and even gave us the parameters of what it takes to be his lucky lady. "I have to say obviously sublime physical perfection doesn’t hurt," he joked. "But truthfully a sense of humor, a demented sense of humor is very high on the list. Someone who's easy going and someone who loves food."
Where you might have already seen him: He's been in a few smaller flicks, but also has had marquee roles on several big TV shows like "Lipstick Jungle," "Fashion House" and "American Heiress." And he was banking that his role on "Lipstick Jungle" would help him find a few more dates, but he was wrong, so he's pleased for the recognition this week.
"I'm flattered! This is good news for me," he said. "I hope you know that now the whole Buckley email family chain is gong to be hearing about this one. This guy is moving up the Christmas card list."
Why you should take notice of him now: He's now a series regular on "One Tree Hill," so expect his sports agent Clay to continue trying to maneuver his way through life in the quaint town of Tree Hill, North Carolina. But, just because Clay's now living in a small town, it doesn't mean that drama takes a backseat. Let's just say, he may have messed with the wrong local family.
Until next Wednesday, when we nominate yet another Hump Day Hottie, you can gawk at Robert and the rest of our past HDH's by clicking on the photo below!
