Just like Jess, we’re smitten kittens over cutie-pie physician Sam, played by David Walton, on the hit Fox comedy “New Girl.” While he may have broken his hook-up’s heart on last night’s episode, we here at Hollywood Crush are the forgiving sort! And just so he knows how serious we are about offering him a second chance, we’re naming the tall, dark and handsome actor this week’s Hump Day Hottie!
Check out this dreamy picture of David and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: David is a Boston boy and—sorry, ladies—he’s taken! The 34-year-old married lady love, “Roswell” actress Majandra Delfino in 2011. The two welcomed their first child, daughter Cecilia, this past summer.
Where you might have already seen him: David’s starred on a handful of ill-fated sitcoms (boo!), including “Perfect Couples” and most recently “Bent.” You may also recognize him from a guest stint on last year’s Halloween episode of “Happy Endings” (he was the one in the Cubs uniform…)
Why you should take notice of him now: David is upping th eye candy quotient on one of our favorite series, and according to a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, we haven’t seen the last of his character Sam.
“I’ve been told anywhere from two or five more episodes,” David said when asked how long he’d be staying on the show. “I never know exactly how it works, but they’re breaking stories. They’ll put a pin in you saying they think they’ll need you, but you never know how the final script will pan out. I’m definitely in at least five. I’m really just kissing up to them to try to become a series regular.”
David’s currently developing his own comedy with “Bent” creator Tad Quill. One David on two networks? We definitely wouldn’t get Bent out of shape about that!
Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute David by gawking the photo above!
