Michael’s been called The Denzel Washington of his generation. “The first time I heard it I was like, ‘Who me?’” he laughs. “The more I hear it, it pushes me to raise the bar for myself and continue to learn and grow in this industry.” Time will tell if he stays sexy throughout his career, like Denzel.

“My turn-ons: cute feet, a woman who will take my plate after I’m finished eating — the little things — whispering Spanish or any [foreign] language in my ear,” Michael lists. Te amo, mi amor. Te amo mucho.
