Happy Hump Day! I am going to have to start watching the TV show "Hell on Wheels" on AMC. I have no clue what it's about, but this Anson Mount guy is HAWT!

He's actually Anson Adams Mount IV and was born in Tennessee. So that makes him a southern boy and I like that. He must have a brain too, because he attended Columbia University from 1995-1998.

Anson is an only child has a brother and two sisters. His mom, Nancy Smith, was a pro golfer. His father was a sports editor for Playboy Magazine.

He was reluctant to play the role of Ben Kimble in "Crossroads" because he thought the movie, and the role, was too cheesy and lame. However, while working on the movie "City by the Sea", co-star Robert DeNiro (who is a huge Britney Spears fan) encouraged Mount to take the part.

During breaks from filming "Sea," Mount and DeNiro would go over the script from the movie; Mount reading his lines and DeNiro reading Spears' lines.
