Sebastian Stan, 'Kings'

You know him as: Prince Jack Benjamin, son of the King of Gilboa Why we like him: On a dramatically earnest show full of stellar actors, Stan stands out by doing the tortured, jealous and petty thing with that intense stare of his. As viewers, we are never 100 percent rooting for Jack, especially during his darkest, most violent moments, but we are compelled to watch thanks to Stan. Where else you've seen him: "Gossip Girl's" Carter Baizen, who's gotten kind of boring lately; dating "Gossip Girl" star Leighton Meester; in the horror flick "The Covenant" (with "GG" star Chace Crawford): and in the sex comedy "Spread." -- Hanh Nguyen, Zap2it Related: 'Kings' pictures
