Ricky Martin

This hottie was "Livin' La Vida Loca" in General Hospital's Port Charles as Miguel Morez. As a fab example of typecasting, Martin was tapped to play a Latino singer. He had long, curly hair and steamed up the afternoons from 1994 to 1995. Today he's far from Port Charles; in fact, this Grammy Award-winning artist spends much of his free time working for children's charities.
