The 10 hottest men on TV now
It’s easy to reel off a list of names of hot movie stars, at times people often forget that there’s another set of stars that are just as hot. They make a weekly appearance in our living rooms and every so often join us in bed on our laptops; their beautiful faces inches from ours. These men brighten up our evenings, give us an added incentive to tune into some of our favourite TV shows and they deserve some recognition for their efforts, at the very least my seal of approval.
1. Jonathan Rhys Meyers
Mr Meyers is a crossover because he has been in movies too but his presence on the small screen is just as great. A former model, Jonathan has previously starred in TV dramas Gormenghast (from which he became a household name), The Tudors (2007) and most recently in Dracula. The epitome of the Irish bad boy, Meyers’ salary for Dracula has reportedly been withheld until he completes all 10 episodes of the series. The producers wanted to safe guard themselves unless Jonathan had any more issues with his alcoholism. Sexy right?
2. Brett Tucker
Not the most famous of the guys on the list but this sun kissed Australian gladiator is saying a lot these days. Known to us TV geeks as Harry Davis in Mistresses, Brett Tucker is one hot cookie. He had a small speaking role in Thor: The Dark World alongside fellow Aussie hunk Chris Hemsworth but we expect to see a lot from him soon.
3. Charles Michael Davis
Although he has been in popular shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Charles Michael Davis has come to the forefront as the vampire Marcel in The Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals. This actor/model is too cute for words. Something about his deep voice and intense eyes sends shivers all over me!
4. Kit Harrington
“You know nothing Jon Snow!” The best line ever! Kit Harrington is no stranger to the Game of Thrones geeks out there, myself included. His brooding good looks and dark floppy hair is enough to make your knees quiver. Kit was in theatre before joining Game of Thrones but he is set to provide his vocal talents to How To Train Your Dragon 2. Excited to hear that Midlands accent!
5. Columbus Short
I’m not sure about you but I knew Columbus Short first as a dancer. He is best known for his role in Stomp The Yard alongside Chris Brown and most recently as Harrison Wright in ABC’s Scandal. Columbus is as smooth as they come, one of those guys who you would let lie to you cause he is just that fine!
6. Shemar Moore
An oldie but definitely one not to forget, Shemar Moore appeared on the small screen as Malcolm Winters on The Young and the Restless. We’re British so we probably never saw that show. We knew him as Terry in The Brothers and the guy with the crazy cornrows in Diary of a Mad Black Woman. Now he is FBI Profiler Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds, kicking down doors and catching bad guys while still staying suave and sexy.
7. Jensen Ackles
Another soap opera graduate, Jensen Ackles played Eric Brady on Days of Our Lives. Since then, he has gone on to play Jason Teague in Smallville and most recently fast food loving, beer drinking Dean Winchester in Supernatural alongside another hottie, Jared Padelecki. Supernatural’s tagline “Scary just got sexy” was obviously made just for him.
8. Idris Elba
So apparently, my babes decided to break my heart and have a baby with his girlfriend. Well, congratulations to her because Idris Elba is amazingly hot. Finding fame on shows like The Wire and Luther on our very own BBC One, Idris is also in movies too. A lovely British guy to fly the flag for us over seas, Idris is a sexy guy, all six foot three of him! Swoon!
9. Daniel Sunjata
Unless you watch Grey’s Anatomy or happened to catch a random episode of Law & Order, you wouldn’t really know David. He is currently a lead role on Graceland and when I saw his face on the trailer, I started watching. This beautiful Chicago native was enough reason to watch a show I have absolutely no interest in!
10. Robert Sheehan
We all know and love Robert from E4’s Misfits. For a show that was completely ridiculous (in a good way), he made it all worth it. He carried the first two seasons all on his own and when he left, it just wasn’t the same. Since Misfits Robert has gone on to star a movies, the most recent being The Mortal Instruments alongside Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower. That’s pretty good for a boy from the fields of Ireland.
