what about the sexy latin ?!?!
Just wanted to also mention this...we hear about the sexy Spanish women roles -- being the other, the temptation, being the "help" (maids) -- characters like Penelope Cruz in Spanglish or Jennifer Lopez in Maid in Manhattan, but what about the sexy male "help?" The role of Jesse Metcalfe as the sexy latin gardner on Desperate Housewives is a prime example! Eva Longoria and him end up having an affair, but their relationship can't last because she expects a lavish lifestyle and he can't provide that for her because he is ...the help...
