In 2015, we fell for Chestnut all over again as the lovable pathologist "Rosie" on Rosewood and he brought us out to the theaters in record numbers this fall in The Perfect Stranger. Seriously, who can ever get enough of this man?

It's a shame you have to be dead for Dr. Rosewood to look you over, because he plays one fine pathologist on FOX's hit show.

“The one thing that I like about Rosewood is that he gets to really enjoy life,” says Chestnut. “Like, he has fun everyday.”
