#15. Sterling K. Brown

Let’s start with good ole Gordon Walker. I remembered Sterling K. Brown in Army Wives before Supernatural. However, he came across the Winchesters first. In 2006, he took on the role of rogue hunter Gordon, who had lost a sister due to vampires and had a grudge against every single one of them. It didn’t matter if the vampires lived off animal blood or human blood. They were creatures and they needed to be killed.

This ended up with Gordon making an enemy of the Winchesters. Well, actually it was the other way around. Sam and Dean were willing to just forget about Gordon, but he was the one that kept showing up like a bad penny. Eventually, Gordon was taken down by the creature he hated the most: vampires. He became one and was killed by Sam.

Since his time on Supernatural, he became the only male “Army wife” in Army Wives. He was Roland Burton in the series, married to a high-ranking and determined female officer. As a psychiatrist, he helped many who came into the hospital and also treated a number of the officers and soldiers his wife knew—and spouses of his friends. He also helped deliver twins in the very first season.

He has since taken on the role of Randall Pearson, the child left at a fire station and adopted by the Pearsons, in This Is Us. This is the series he’s fully made himself a household name. We love seeing him as a good guy rather than a bad guy.
