You look familliar...  
I was watching Once Upon a Time tonight, and Christopher Gorham appeared on screen, and for a moment, I thought he was Ben Whishaw. It turns out, he used to be even more Q-esque.

I think the Holmes family have enough sons, but if they're looking for a cousin or something...

I never watched Once Upon a Time, but Christopher Gorham has been in a number of shows I've liked. Covert Affairs, which airs over the summers here and is on S4 or 5 I think and he was one Jake 2.0, a show which only lasted a season and aired a decade or so ago.

He was in Harper's Island, as well, which I watched for...two episodes? Then it got too grim for me. I knew he was on Covert Affairs, but I haven't seen it myself. We don't get the network its on here, and the one that does show it always airs those shows at really odd times. He's got a great smile, and I seem to remember watching him being interviewed on Craig Ferguson once and being really lovely.

I forgot about Harper's Island, yeah, it was too dark for me too. Not my cup of tea at all.

Covert Affairs was really good in the early seasons, I gave up on it this most recent one. It was on as the same time as something else and I meant to catch up and watch the episodes later and I just never cared enough to bother.

I have a lot of respect for Christopher though, his character on Covert Affairs is blind (due to a special forces combat injury) and he's done (and continues to do) a LOT of work to make sure he portrays the character accurately and uses his fame to raise money and awareness for a lot of blind/wounded vet causes.

Oh, that's super cool. I love it when actors take the time to do it right, and use their position for good.

It's really great- he's always tweeting links to things and he's donated a bunch of show related stuff like signed scripts and stuff to auctions for the blind organization he works with (I can't remember it's name off the top of my head, I think it's one for the province that Covert Affairs films in) and he's done PSAs too.

I thought that must be Christoher Gorham but then IMDB wasn't backing me up, or Tumblr or LJ.

Still, I didn't ship him with Betty and all that Ugly Betty baggage made me not want him with Emma whatsoever and I know the viewer was supposed to at least think he was a decent guy that she should take a chance on...

I do get a kick out of casting people from the WB network though...

I only saw the first few episodes of Ugly Betty back in the day, so I had no baggage, but I didn't buy him as a nice guy, just because Emma isn't allowed to be happy. I did sort of hope, if he did turn out to be from the EF, that he might just be a good guy, though. Mostly because it would be nice to have a man on TV say to a woman 'no, we're waiting on you, I respect your choices, I love you and will let you decide when you're ready' and mean it.

According to Wiki, he will be back, though so perhaps we'll learn more about him in the future.
