Lennie James, 'Jericho'
You know him as: Mysterious and potentially sketchy newcomer Rod Hawkins
Why we like him: The CBS promo department may think that "Jericho" is Skeet Ulrich's show, but the only character we want to see more of is Hawkins, thanks to James' ability to seem benign and threatening to both strangers and his family. Once we find out where Hawkins has been and who he works for, we can watch something else on Wednesday night.
Where else you've seen him: The British actor's long list of feature credits includes "Snatch," "24 Hour Party People" and a memorable turn in "Sahara"
