Rumors that Rihanna is dating '90210' actor Tristan Wilds have shot the 20-year-old New Yorker into sudden stardom. Rihanna got the gossip-mongering started at a party at her Los Angeles home last weekend, where she was "openly affectionate" with Wilds.

So, just who is this guy?

He was still in high school when he began playing street thug Michael Lee on HBO's gritty 'The Wire'. When that wrapped, he lined up the role of Dixon, the Wilsons' adopted son, on '90210.' He told the New York Daily News that Dixon "is a ladies' man. I went through that stage, so I know exactly who Dixon is."

Is he a ladies' man in real life? We couldn't turn up any bonafide Hollywood romances, just wishful thinking from fans that he'd hook up with co-star Jessica Stroup in real life as well as on TV.

Wilds was reportedly introduced to Rihanna via a mutual music producer friend; he's starred in a few videos, including Jay-Z's 'Roc Boys' from his 'American Gangster' album, Lil Flip's 'Ghetto Mindstate' and Alicia Keys' 'Teenage Love Affair.'

On the big screen, he's been in 'Half Nelson' and 'The Secret Life of Bees' and is slated to star alongside Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrence Howard in 'Red Tails', George Lucas' upcoming film about the Tuskegee Airmen. Our advice to casting directors: Get him while you can still afford him!
