Alex O'Loughlin is my new tv boyfriend. Currently starring in Moonlight, the new vampire series on CBS, I think he's the most delicious thing Australia has produced since the Tim Tam *g*
If he looks familiar to you and you aren't watching Moonlight, then you probably saw him on season 6 of The Shield, where he played Vic Mackey's potential replacement, Kevin Hiatt. in addition, Alex has done a lot of work in Australia and I highly recommend Oyster Farmer and The Incredible Journey of Mary Bryant.
And now for the convincing photo proof *g*
Alex as Alex
The following photos are different promo shots. Alex wore the beard when he was promoting The Oyster Farmer on the film festival circuit. Try to not hold the ugly shirt againts him. Just focus on the pretty.
Other photos are from appearances for Moonlight, such as the Comic Con panel.
Alex joined the cast of The Shield for most of season 6, appearing in episodes 4 through 10. Brought in to replace Mackey, Vic as usual managed to save his career and Kevin was promptly bounced off the team, not before a rather steamy sex scene though in episode 9. (Err, the sex scene is not with Vic *g*)
On Alex's current show, he plays the lead, Mick St. John, a vampire with a conscience. This show started off rather shaky, but it's improved a great deal and a lot of that is because Alex is just amazing. It is also a good thing he's fit because if he's not wet, he's shirtless. Sometimes he is both shirtless and wet.

Yes, Vampires can go out during the day!
The Oyster Farmer
The Oyster Farmer is this really sweet Australian movie. Alex's character has stolen a bunch of money and somehow it gets lost and he spends his time looking for the cash, farming oysters and starting a romance. That sounds crazy, doesn't it? That's because I make no sense! Trust me though, the movie is adorable and he's wonderful and.... there's a really steamy love scene. Hmmm, noticing a trend? ;)
Feed is another movie. It's sorta of a mystery/horror/slasher type thing. It's about... well, why don't I just let Alex tell you. This is a great interview with Alex O'Loughlin about how Feed came to be and the creative process.
I don't even know if I can ever watch this movie, but I love this interview. He just comes across so very well.
