A former model. A series regular on Grey’s Anatomy. An upcoming Joss Whedon horror movie on the big screen. On stage in Colonial Williamsburg. A former high school history teacher. A guest writer for The Huffington Post. It’s official. Jesse Williams is, in fact, a god among mortals.

The handsome Seattle Grace doc has done it all, but remains pretty shy about his fame. He admits that it’s weird being known for his hunky bod and piercing eyes. But, he’s cool with being the eye candy on tonight’s Grey’s episode, where he’ll appear shirtless for the first time. "I'm here to try to grow as an actor and develop a real character that's complete and (whom) the audience gives a damn about,” Jesse says. Glad to see he’s taking his craft seriously. He adds, “I think the shirtless stuff is entertaining. My first break was Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, so I'm used to that. ... As long I can do more than that and leave something behind that is substantive, then I'm OK with that." Aww, it’s so cute when the newbies try really hard to convince us they’re serious actors. Plus, he used the word substantive! Just take off your shirt and smile, Jesse. We know you’ve got the acting chops.

Unfortunately, ladies, the charming Mr. Williams is engaged to be married next year. He says of his fiancee, Aryn, "I was a teacher when I met her, so she's been with me through all different facets of my career. She's stuck with me through thick and thick and thick and thin.” Looks like he’s got quite the catch by his side. How soon until he’s swapping diaper-changing tricks with the mommy clique on set?
