Why We Love Ring of Fire's Michael Vartan
03.09.13 by REELZ
Disaster mini-series Ring of Fire premieres on Reelz in just a couple of days and it stars the talented and good-looking television-movie actor, Michael Vartan. While Vartan is probably most well-known for his role as Michael Vaughn in hit TV series Alias, he has also starred alongside Gwyneth Paltrow and David Schwimmer in The Pallbearer, Jennifer Lopez in Monster-in-Law and Robin Williams in One Hour Photo. He also played charming English teacher to Drew Barrymore in the 1999 romantic-comedy Never Been Kissed, making most of the female population fall over in the process. But while the actor may have proven his talents for teaching and the ability to shoot a gun or two, how will he fare when tasked with saving the world from extinction? We can’t think of anything not to like about the gorgeous French-American star but to keep our faith in his world saving abilities we have made a list of what we love most.
Premieres March 11th 8p ET/ 5p PT
A REELZ movie event
We love Michael Vartan because...
• He's a romantic — he met his wife in the parking lot of Whole Foods. Sigh.
• He loves dogs — “my first true love was a German shorthair named Watson.” He also wrote a letter to his dog, Millie, along with a number of other stars , which appeared in a book benefitting The Humane Society of the United States.
• He speaks French fluently — what's not to love about that?
His Monster in Law co-star Jennifer Lopez loves him — “…Just because he's so sweet. He's very genuine. He's very real. He doesn't have a bunch of phony airs about him, you know?... There's just something about him that's very kind."
• He is a huge Star Wars fan.
• His has a perfect sweetheart/ tough-guy ratio — Never Been Kissed, Alias
• He has a positive outlook on life — "You just have to keep plugging away and if you get lucky enough to get a job, you get one."
• He dated much loved Alias co-star Jennifer Garner for a while — go Michael.
• He tries to save the world from the brink of disaster — we’re not yet sure if he succeeds but the fact that he at least attempts it gives him a few extra points.
See how Vartan gets on, don’t miss part 1 of Ring of Fire Monday, March 11th at 8p E/ 5p P and part 2 Tuesday, March 12th at 8p E/ 5p P.
