I couldn’t help but notice lately that there are some seriously appealing men on TV right now. No attractive man should go unnoticed, if you ask me, so I’ve compiled a list of the 8 hottest guys currently in television. If you aren’t watching these outstanding shows, allow me to give you one more reason to tune in…
Walton Goggins as Boyd Crowder, Justified- I know Olyphant steals the media spotlight but my heart belongs to Boyd Crowder, played with captivating magnetism by Walton Goggins. Pajiba said it best: “Walton Goggins exerts more charisma and energy sitting stock still in a Prison Visiting Booth than most other actors can muster in an entire feature film.” That sound you hear? That’s my heart going all aflutter.
Alec Baldwin as Jack Donaghy, 30 Rock- I know we have his new, 30-something, yoga-instructing girlfriend to thank for it, but Alec is looking svelte these days and I am digging it. The man oozes charm like none other. One bewitching look with those ice-blue eyes coupled with his boyish grin would be enough to make my panties fall to my ankles.
Luke Wilson as Levi Callow, Enlightened- He’s unemployed, sure. Something of a cokehead, all right. Base enough to employ the occasional prostitute. Unstable. Unreliable. Irresponsible. Essentially everything a smart woman seeks to avoid in a man. But it’s Luke Wilson, ladies! Luke. Fucking. Wilson. Does anything else matter?
Charlie Hunnam as Jax Teller, Sons Of Anarchy- Usually, blondes just don’t do it for me but Teller has got that special mixture of bad boy allure and the appearance of innocence that have broken many a tender, feminine heart. Not that I’d know anything about it. Ahem.
Martin Freeman as Dr. Watson, Sherlock- I first developed a crush during The Office (U.K.) but now have decided he is the most adorable Brit ever to grace my television screen. Intelligence, wit, charm and an English accent are an undefeatable combination.
Brendan Coyle as Mr. Bates, Downton Abbey- Annie’s the one who typically falls for guys old enough to be our father, but that twinkle in Bates’s eyes when he longingly looks at his beloved Anna is more than I can resist. Check out this pic if you doubt me.
Allen Leech as Tom Branson, Downton Abbey- He may be a chauffer, but that Irish accent and his rebellious ambition more than make up for lack of social status. I’m a sucker for nonconformity AND for an underdog so it was all but inevitable for me to root for him. Plus, he has dimples. And is boy-next-door cute. If I were Sybil, I’d have run away with him in season 1.
Jeremy Allen White as Lip Gallagher, Shameless- I actually don’t find Lip all that attractive physically, but his wit and off-the-charts intelligence gave me pause within the first few episodes of this fantastic series. His unwavering devotion to Karen and complete willingness to forgive her batshit antics cemented a full-on, scorching attraction.
Go on and watch. You know you want to.
