TV Guide magazine reports that Peter Gallagher, who plays lawyer Sandy Cohen in the Fox hit The O.C., is television's hunkiest dad. The former star of indie films like Sex, Lies, and Videotape has matured into a small-screen hottie.
The O.C. co-executive producer Stephanie Savage told TV Guide she thinks Sandy's appeal comes from the fact that sexy dads "don't try to act like their kids--too hip or clever. Sandy is the Steve McQueen of dads."
In other words, Sandy is number one with a Bullitt.
Also included on this list of hot dads are perennial hot man Treat Williams, who plays Dr. Andy Brown in The WB's Everwood, and former "Duke of Hazzard" John Schneider, who plays the role of Jonathan Kent in The WB's Smallville. Schneider's costar Annette O'Toole says of him: "Jonathan makes plaid sexy."
You go, guys!
