Eddie Cibrian

Eddie Cibrian knows a little something about having a bad reputation -- and so did his character Matt Clark, whom he originated on the CBS soap The Young and the Restless from 1994 to 1996. Cibrian may have cheated on his ex with current wife LeeAnn Rimes, but Clark's dirty deeds definitely take the cake -- his sins included rape and repeatedly framing an innocent man for his own criminal activity. After 1996, Cibrian left the confines of Genoa City and he took on lead roles in Baywatch Nights and Sunset Beach. His more recent projects have included CSI: Miami and the short-lived The Playboy Club. Viewers of The Young and the Restless may remember the return of Matt Clark from 2000 to 2001, but during those seasons the character was played by Russell Lawrence and Rick Hearst. In 2012, he appeared in Tyler Perry's For Better of Worse as well as Good Deeds and Hot in Cleveland. And earlier this year, appeared in tv-film Notes From Dad.
