This was probably the most fun we’ve had at our office all week! We scanned the net and put our girly heads together to compile a list of the most beautiful men on TV right now.
Here are, in our opinion, 10 of the 20 (in a 2 part series) most drop dead handsome dudes on the tube.
So go ahead, enjoy the eye candy and get the lowdown on the leading men we are currently in love (and in lust) with:
1. Ian Somerhalder-The Vampire Diaries
Actor and model Ian Somerhalder first got our hearts racing as a bisexual college student in the 2002 flick Rules of Attraction and is still turning us on more than a decade later: this time as the undead Damon on the weekly CW show, The Vampire Diaries. Offscreen, his lady love is TO homegrown Degrassi alum Nina Dobrev, who stars alongside him on Diaries.
2. Christopher Abbott “ Girls
Leading the Girls pack of cute boys is Christopher Abbott, as Charlie, Marnie’s nice guy ex who has recently been sporting some super-studly scruff to go with his gorgeous grin and puppy dog eyes. Like Charlie, Christopher is a musician, albeit perhaps a cooler version of Charlie: he has a tattoo, (a fish hook on his forearm, done by his Girls co-star Jemima Kirke, who plays Jessa) and is hot on the indie movie circuit – so much so that he recently won the famed Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film’s Breakout Award.
3. Jesse Williams “ Grey’s Anatomy
The hottie with the baby blues is mostly known for his role as Dr. Jackson Avery on Grey’s, but his roster includes several spots on other TV shows and major films (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Brooklyn’s Finest). Despite being one of the TV’s hottest doctors, Williams comes from humble beginnings: he started out as a teacher at a high school, where he met his wife, a real estate broker, whom he was married to last year.
4. Stephen Amell “ Arrow
His breakout role has been as vigilante DC comic superhero Arrow on the CW hit show of the same name, but Amell has had a slew of roles on a variety of shows, including Queer as Folk, Hung and The Vampire Diaries (Hello! yet another reason to watch The Vampire Diaries!) Hollywood has surely taken notice of his chiseled good looks, and perhaps it isn’t long before the Toronto native joins the ranks of countless other Canucks who have found success in tinsel town.
5. Joe Manganiello “ True Blood
Beefcake hunk Joe Manganiello is the object of lust for many True Blood fans as Sookie’s Werewolf love interest Alcide Herveaux. Magniello is the whole package too: he is classically trained in acting and holds a BFA from the distinguished Carnegie Mellon School of Drama.
6. Tyler Blackburn “ Pretty Little Liars
Even if you don’t agree that Blackburn is a Johnny Depp doppelganger, it’s hard to disagree that the Pretty Little Liars star and former cast member of daytime drama Days of Our Lives, is a dreamboat. Blackburn’s love life seems to contain some drama as well: his (very pretty) Pretty Little Liars costar Ashley Benson is rumored to be his leading lady.
7. Josh Henderson “ Dallas
He’s already been a cast member of steamy movies like Step Up and TV shows like Desperate Housewives and 90210, so it seems natural that Henderson should once again heat up the screen in a soap classic like Dallas. He also has a smooth voice to go with his good looks and acting chops: as a contestant on the reality show Popstars, he was compared to the usually incomparable Justin Timberlake.
8. Andrew Lincoln “ The Walking Dead
Walking Dead fans know him as the hot zombie-fighting ranger Rick Grimes, but Andrew Lincoln – who hails from Britain – has been breaking hearts in television and movies (namely as Keira Knightley’s secret admirer in the romantic film Love Actually) since the early nineties. Lincoln plays the hero part in real-life too: he supports charity work for England’s homeless and participated in a volunteer teaching program in Ghana.
9. Taylor Kinney “ Chicago Fire
Taylor Kinney’s career is definitely on fire: he stars as superfine fireman Kelly Severide on Chicago Fire, and has many other hot TV and movie roles (Shameless, Trauma, The Vampire Diaries and a role in the award-winning film Zero Dark Thirty) under his belt. Kinney’s love life seems pretty hot these days too: rumor has it Kinney is so gaga for Lady Gaga that they pair are tying the knot this summer.
10. Dean Geyer “ Glee
The gorgeous Geyer is Rachel Berry’s new guy on Glee, and is also alumnus of Neighbors-a TV show that’s super hot down under – and a former top contestant on Australian Idol (he finished in 3rd place.) He met his future fiancé©e, singer Lisa Origliasso of The Veronicas, at the Australian Recording Industry Awards, but they later broke up, and he is currently dating Jillian Murray, his former costar on the film, Never Back Down 2.
