The Resident star, who's most famous for The Good Wife and Gilmore Girls, says he won free acting classes when he competed on a male beauty pageant and was named Mr. College of Charleston 20 years ago. "You know what's crazy is because backstage everybody's making fun of the whole thing and when I saw free acting classes, it was a light bulb moment for me," he told Jimmy Fallon. "I'm like, 'I gotta win this thing. This is an opportunity.' And, you know, in your life you never know when these opportunities are gonna come and I felt it in that moment."
