Since exchanging his modeling credentials for a SAG card, actor Matt Lanter has crammed a lot of credits into his 33 years. On television he’s played everything from the President’s son to a lovestruck alien, but it’s his latest role as time traveler Wyatt Logan on NBC’s hit freshman series Timeless that he considers an actors’ dream. “Timeless isn’t my first grown-up show,” Lanter tells me. “I started on Commander in Chief with Geena Davis.

But this is the first show where I get to embrace a character who has adult things happen to him and has adult emotions.”
