It was perfectly appropriate that actor Josh Duhamel attained national prominence on the television show "Las Vegas" (NBC, 2003-08). Sin City, the gambling capital of the world, was built on the inherent human belief in luck, and Duhamel was always a prime example of uncanny good fortune. From being born with stunningly handsome looks, to stumbling into lucrative modeling and acting careers, Duhamel seemed to succeed without trying. But to get a break was one thing; to take advantage of that break was another. To his credit, Duhamel worked hard, and it was that dedication to his craft that caught the attention of director Michael Bay and won Duhamel a coveted part in the summer blockbuster feature "Transformers" (2007). Wooing and winning the hand of singer-actress Fergie did not hurt Duhamel's growing profile and fanbase and helped solidify his status as a leading man to keep an eye on.
