October Road‘s Bryan Greenberg

Greenberg, 28, shines as a sincere guy who returns home and faces his past on the ABC hit. Its first-season finale is April 26.

ON LEADING-MAN STATUS I’ve never had to carry a show on my shoulders, but I relished it. It’s flattering when people come up with [heartthrob] nicknames. I’ll take “McRoady.”

ON HIS OWN ALBUM, WAITING FOR NOW It’s mostly indie acoustic rock. I’ve been playing the guitar ever since I was a kid [and] been writing songs forever. Music is always a constant in my life.
