MICHAEL AND KEVIN, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS
Last year, the reveal that Michael and Kevin are brothers was named Best Secret. In 2004, the secret is out and this complicated relationship is smashing. We know we shouldn't like these guys, what with their misogynistic, sociopathic past misdeeds. But Christian J. LeBlanc (Michael) and Greg Rikaart's (Kevin) compatibility and fearless acting styles make for a winning team. Naturally, credit goes to the scribes for full-bodied characters who balance tragedy and comedy. Case in point: When Kevin challenged Michael to a boxing match over Lauren, the scenes contained a "Who does that?" humor, but then morphed into intense drama as Kevin's deep-seated rage over childhood abuse erupted in the ring, concluding when he collapsed sobbing in big bro's arms. As they dance on the thin line between love and hate, these sibs are a knockout.
