Sexy Guys of Sci/Fi - Colin Ferguson
The television show Eureka takes place in a high tech community of the same name, located somewhere in the Pacific Northwest (the true location is a secret, of course) and inhabited entirely by brilliant scientists working on new scientific advancements for the United States government. As would be expected, these projects quite frequently go disastrously awry, endangering lives, the town, and even sometimes the fabric of reality itself.
U.S. Marshal Jack Carter stumbles upon Eureka while transporting a fugitive prisoner — his own rebellious teenage daughter Zoe — back to her mother's home in Los Angeles. When a faulty experiment cripples the sheriff of Eureka, Carter finds himself quickly chosen to fill the vacancy. Despite not being a genius like most members of the town, Jack Carter's ability to connect to others, simplistic ideas, and steadfast dedication to his work repeatedly saves Eureka, and indeed the entire world, from one would-be disaster after another.
Colin Ferguson plays the role of Sheriff Jack Carter. He's the average joe smack dab in the middle of a town of geniuses, and is consistently overwhelmed by the wonders he sees every day in the town he has been charged to protect.
In this town where children learn (and understand) physics in grade school, men argue about the relevance of time travel instead of football teams, and surprises lurk around every corner waiting to cause havoc - Jack Carter keeps a level head and often his simpler thinking is what ends up saving the day.
He's also a single dad, and loves his daughter more than anything in the world. In fact, she is the main reason he decides to stay in Eureka, so that he can provide her with the greatest opportunities the world has to offer. He's risked his life more than once to protect her. What's sexier than a man willing to do that for his family?
Plus, there's just something sexy about a well-built man in a uniform...
Well, maybe when he's OUT of uniform...
Either way, Colin Ferguson is definitely one Sexy Guy of Sci/Fi!
