Colin Egglesfield, the “Tom Cruise” of our generation, is the hunk of the day.

Colin Egglesfield

Early life

Egglesfield was born in Farmington Hills, Michigan, the second child of Kathleen (née Dineen) and William Egglesfield, a physician.[1][2][3] His mother is Irish.[4] He has two siblings: an older sister, Kerry, and a younger brother, Sean. He was brought up in a Catholic household.
Egglesfield spent his early childhood in the Metro Detroit area. At the age of ten, he and his family moved to Crete, Illinois, a small community south of Chicago. Growing up, he was more studious than rambunctious, preferring to spend Friday nights alone building model airplanes. His dream was to follow his father's footsteps as a physician, but became interested in acting watching his older sister Kerry perform.

Shy in his adolescent years, he credits his prep football coach with helping gain a positive self-esteem. Egglesfield graduated from Marian Catholic High School in Chicago Heights and went on to the University of Iowa's pre-med program. After he received his BS from Iowa he backpacked throughout Europe.

To earn money for medical school, Egglesfield turned to modeling. He won a contest (he entered at the urging of a friend), and soon after, he left medicine behind for a modeling career. He is signed with Beatrice Model agency in Milan, Italy, and DNA Model Management in New York City. He modeled for Versace, Calvin Klein, and Armani, among others before he started acting.
