Why I Love ... Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Dear Hollywood: Could you please stop killing Jeffrey Dean Morgan?

His Judah Botwin on "Weeds" keeled over before the show even started, widowing Mary-Louise Parker's character and leaving us with only sun-dappled flashbacks. Then he wooed "Grey's Anatomy" intern Izzie — and me, and the female half of America — as heart patient Denny Duquette, only to die and leave me pining. And his turn on "Supernatural" ended early this season, when that show offed him too.

It's a shame, because I could watch the scruffy, husky-voiced Morgan all day long. He was a charmer as Denny and a cool dad as Judah — and frankly, it's not often I can find a guy sexy as both a dad and a boyfriend, so clearly Morgan's got a special talent. But mostly I like the sly smile he gives his characters, like he's laughing at some secret that he can't wait to spill.

For more on why I love him,

Morgan was a classic "Hey, it's that guy!" for a while, with guest-starring roles on "Monk," "JAG," and "ER" and a part in a short film directed by the dude who played Brian Krakow on "My So-Called Life." But now it's more like "Hey, it's Denny Duquette!" His "Supernatural" and "Weeds" roles were great and all, but it's going to be a long time before I stop thinking of Morgan as the hot bedridden guy who make my heart flutter while playing Scrabble.

Luckily, I'm not the only person he's enchanted. He has six movies in various stages of development, and "Greys" creator Shonda Rhimes wants him for an upcoming show.

Let's just hope he survives at least one of them this time.
