Aight now, bear with me on this.  I know he's being pushed right now as a "hunk" because of the Spider-Man movie, but I think there's more potential for this actor than that.  Picture him slightly bald, and put him in those Woody Allen glasses.  His name is Andrew Garfield.  Only problem, he *might* be on the tallish side.
