Mehcad Brooks


Elisabetta Canalis Has Good Taste In Rebounds, Probably

By Sabrina Rojas Weiss

After her short run on “Dancing With the Stars,” and a much longer run as George Clooney’s girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis was caught on TMZ after an apparent dinner date with “True Blood” alum Mehcad Brooks earlier this week. Nothing like a good dish of Eggs to help you bounce back, amiright?

Not hard to understand how his sunshiny face — and seriously, he’s sexy even as he laughs off the TMZ guy’s annoying questions — would help Elisabetta forget all her worries. Some of us have had to be content to pause the DVR when he shows up with Selita Ebanks in that State Farm commercial. (OK, he’s also starring in something called “Necessary Roughness,” but “Friday Night Lights” used up our free pass on football related shows.) Behold this little gallery of Austin, Texas-born Mehcad, 30, whose smile lit up even the scariest scenes in Season 2 of “True Blood” (except, maybe, when his eyes were all Tyler, the Creator), and imagine he’s your rebound too.
