* CleopatraNose



* DumbBlond: Most definitely averted. Staton often comes off as extremely eloquent in his interviews.



* HairOfGold: Both in the literal sense, and in some ways (especially considering some of his roles), in the sense of the trope.



* HotDad



* OlderThanTheyLook: Although he looks like he's in his mid 20s, in actuality he's in his early 30s. Of course, he's still got nothing on the 35-but-17-looking Kartheiser.

!!Provides Examples Of:

* BadassBeard: When ''Mad Men'' isn't filming, he's been known to grow a pretty serious looking one.
* CleopatraNose
* CreatorCouple: Sort of. Both he and his wife acted side by side ([[RealLifeRelative playing husband and wife]]) in ''L.A. Noire''.
* DumbBlond: Most definitely averted. Staton often comes off as extremely eloquent in his interviews.
* FacialDialogue: Is ''very'' good at this, and has an extremely expressive face. It's most likely one of the big reasons he was chosen for Cole.
* HairOfGold: Both in the literal sense, and in some ways (especially considering some of his roles), in the sense of the trope.
* [[ShesGotLegs He's Got Legs]]: [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m2n7z5PtrV1qmuyt5o1_1280.jpg Apparently so]]
* HilariousInHindsight: His interrogation on ''SVU'' certainly counts as this.
* HotDad
* NewbieBoom: Was the cause of this with ''Mad Men'', after quite a few people played ''L.A. Noire'' and wanted more.
* NiceGuy: Tends to be cast as a combo of this and a sort of "All American" BoyNextDoor.
* NiceShoes: [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7wtezJj601qh5pnuo1_400.jpg These]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: Although he looks like he's in his mid 20s, in actuality he's in his early 30s. Of course, he's still got nothing on the 35-but-17-looking Kartheiser.
* OneOfUs: Has been very open about his love of video games (discussed [[http://www.ifc.com/fix/2011/06/e3-2011-talking-with-aaron-sta here]] and [[http://www.edge-online.com/features/aaron-staton-my-favourite-game/ here]]), having attended E3 several years in a row.
