OK, you might know Zach Roerig as Matt Donovon from Vampire Diaries. Granted, I think of him as just the ex who puts up with Caroline.
It wasn't until I started watching the 3rd season of Friday Night Lights that I fell in love with his Cash, the bronco rider. Talk about amazing writing. They created a true and genuine character. From the moment he tipped his hat to Tyra, you knew she couldn't wait to meet him. In reality he's a couple of inches shorter than this actress, but you definitely wouldn't notice it because you just wonder what's going to come out of that sly mouth of his.

Its really made me reconsider Roerig's acting abilities. He's a lot more than just eye-candy. And too bad they can't use him more on Vampire Diaries. He got his start on As the World Turns which is definitely a good place to hone in on the craft of acting. When he's not filming Vampire Diaries, he still considers himself a New Yorker, who learned to use his Texas Twang just right on Friday Night Lights. You just knew this cowboy would know what to do when it came to the Texas two-step. His character always stepped up too.
Needless to say, he did inspire me to want to create my own character. Of course, this character is nothing like Cash nor Matt on my on-going ..possibly slacker soap, Lucy and Sarah.
