Erik Stocklin is shaping up to be a bit of a creep on the soapy summer series "Mistresses." But, we’re willing to forgive him because he's just that adorable and because we realize it's just a TV show and it's just his job. And, so, in honor of our crush on him, we’re naming Erik this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out this dreamy photo of Erik, and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: Erik grew up in Freehold, New Jersey, and has put in the time to study his craft. He not only attended Southern Connecticut State University where he graduated in 2010 with a degree in theatre, but also spent some time in Haven's Elm Shakespeare Company and Circle in the Square Theatre School in New York. We also can’t help but notice he reminds us of some vintage, Brat Pack-era Andrew McCarthy.
Where you might have already seen him: He’s banked some time on shows like "Vampire Diaries," "First Day" and "Let’s Big Happy."
Why you should take notice of him now: He’s steaming up and creeping out our Monday nights as Sam Grey on ABC’s addictive series “Mistresses.” As much as we’d be totally into Sam crushing on us, we do question his methods of showing it. Breaking and entering does not equal true love. As the season continues to chug along, we do wonder what Sam’s next move is going to be. We’re fairly certain Dr. Karen isn’t swooning at the thought of it despite his boy-next-door looks.
Next up, he’s set to appear in the film “Grey Sheep” soon. Um, we sense a color-related theme in his career here?
Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Erik by gawking at the photo above!
