Someone Other Than Anthony Weiner Who Dropped His Underwear

Happy 38th Birthday to actor and Hollywood scandal-monger, Eddie Cibrian. Cibrian started out in 1993 as a janitor cleaning up other people's messes on "Saved By the Bell: The College Years", and then came full circle last year by creating a Hollywood mess of his own by cheating on his wife with country singer Leann Rimes, (click here).

After sharing the small screen with Screech, Cibrian quickly transitioned into a career which was more about his abs than his acting skills, on "The Young and the Restless", "Baywatch Nights" and "Sunset Beach". Perhaps Cibrian's most famous moment of near nudity was his cameo in the 1998 movie "Living Out Loud" in when he played a masseur who was only too eager to drop his undies for lonely divorcee, Holly Hunter. Finally in 1999, Cibrian got a role in which he was allowed to remain mostly clothed on the t.v. series, "Third Watch", followed by a 2008 turn on "Ugly Betty", and for the past two years co-starred on "CSI: Miami". Cibrian weathered his recent tabloid headlines with Leann Rimes, finally marrying her in April 2011, but then unfortunately, we just found out today that Cibrian's contract with "CSI: Miami" has not been renewed for next season. Ouch. Do you think he found out on his birthday?

Next up for Cibrian is the t.v. movie, "The Playboy Club", which chronicles the history of the original Playboy Club in 1960's Chicago. We're guessing that one will be just a sexed-up "Mad Men", right? Cibrian is currently filming Tyler Perry's next movie, "Good Deeds".
