Because I DVR everything, I normally fast-forward through commercials, but for the last month or so, I’ve been frantically pressing “Play! Play!” every time I start to zip through the commercial for “Chicago Fire,” an upcoming drama on NBC about, like, a group of firefighters doing what firefighters do, which is fighting fires and looking sexy whilst doing it. One guy in particular made me salivate … his slightly salt and pepper hair, clear blue eyes, tan skin … who the hell is he?!

Imagine my surprise to discover that his name is Taylor Kinney and he is Lady Gaga’s boyfriend. He even appeared in her video for “You and I.” Get it, girl. Taylor plays Lieutenant Kelly Severide on the show, which premieres October 10, and while I don’t know that it’ll be any good, I don’t really care. That’s what the mute button is for.
