Great Performances: Matthew Rhys as Kevin Walker

Brothers and Sisters has not only proved to be a great showcase for some of our favorite TV actresses (Rachel Griffiths, Calista Flockhart, Patricia Wettig and the Emmy Award winning Sally Field), it has also given us a rarity for network television: a well-rounded, realistic gay character.

As portrayed by Matthew Rhys, Kevin Walker has been far from perfect ... but who of us is? Kevin can be curt, insensitive and self-centered at times, but he is never a stereotype, even with his frequent, sarcastically witty one-liners (which are always hilarious). Rhys' performance is multi-layered, but the love Kevin has for his family and new husband Scotty (Luke Macfarlane) is never too far from the surface.

Brothers and Sisters returns tomorrow night with its third season premiere. To catch up on all the goings-on with the Walker clan, watch the ABC "Starter Kit" video and/or this preview clip.
