Does Robert Buckley look familiar? If you’re a huge television buff, then you probably recognize him as Kirby Atwood from Lipstick Jungle, Clay Evans from One Tree Hill, or David Besser from Privileged. Additionally, in Fall 2012, he will be taking on a new, mysterious persona in ABC’s supernatural drama 666 Park Avenue. And because we’re stoked to see this handsome fella in action again so we’re naming him Vampire Bait of the Week!
In this thrilling new series starring Terry O’Quinn and Vanessa Williams, Robert will be portraying a talented playwright named Brian Leonard — a newlywed married to a stylish photographer named Louise, played by Mercedes Masohn. The couple resides in a historic apartment building where terrifying, unsettling events occur, and Robert’s character is certainly no stranger to the mischief seeing as he’s hiding some scandalous secrets of his own. Moreover, despite his serious, nerdy makeover (think glasses and cashmere sweaters) for his new role, Robert’s still packing his infamous set of washboard abs. Here’s to hoping that 666 Park Avenue’s residential writer gets to partake in plenty of steamy, shirtless scenes! (The eyes want what the eyes want.)
