You know him as: Detective Carlton Lassiter
Why we like him: Over six seasons of the comedy detective series, Omundson has deftly revealed that beneath the bullet-proof vest of the trigger-happy squirrel assassin lies a vulnerable heart. After years of violently resenting Shawn and Gus' interference in his police investigations, he's finally developed a grudging respect for their skills, and through his romance with a criminal (Kristy Swanson), we've seen even more of his softer side. And Omundson is a master at playing the straight man opposite a couple of goofballs.
Where else you've seen him: "Deadwood," "Judging Amy"
