After long and careful consideration, these are my top fifteen top sexy actors. For today, at any rate. It was really difficult narrowing them down, and I decided to eliminate Clooney and Depp right off the bat, because, you know...they're CLOONEY and DEPP. Redneck straight men with sawed-off shotguns in the gun rack of their vintage pickup trucks would pop the top off a can of Coors and agree, "Yep, they're hot." So, minus C&D, here they are. And yes, I know, I sometimes have...interesting taste. What can I say?
Jeffrey Tambor. I liked him before, but "Arrested Development" made me lurve him.
Patrick Dempsey. Yes, yes, I know....EVERYone thinks he's hot NOW. But I had deep and abiding love for him when he was just a young lad, running around servicing older women onscreen (AND offscreen at the time). And my love deepened and ripened when he played Aaron on the gone-too-soon and deeply-missed "Once and Again." That was some beautiful, beautiful acting.
Paul Rudd. Not alone in this, I know, but the man is so damn funny and talented, and, while he could easily have traded on his looks, he's chosen instead to do weird, quirky, interesting work. What's not to love?
Rocky Carroll. I couldn't even list that many things he's been in. I mostly remember him as the brother in that Charles S. Dutton sitcom whose name I can't remember, and as the bartender in "Prelude to a Kiss." But the man is FINE.
Stephen Colbert. I've been a fan since "Strangers with Candy." "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" have certainly done nothing to lessen my love. And, I mean, look at him...the man is willing to look silly. And that's very attractive.
Mandy Patinkin. Yes, I think he can probably be a bit of a pill, but I don't care. I've loved him since I saw him walking shirtless out of the water in "Yentl." Yowza. I also love to hear him sing, overuse of falsetto or not. I saw him perform live once, from about 8 rows back, and I am absolutely positive that he was singing straight to me. Do not attempt to disabuse me of this notion.
Alan Rickman. It would be impossible to even attempt to list his credits here--the man has done everything. My favorite role would be, of course, as Jamie in "Truly, Madly, Deeply." I can get all teary-eyed just thinking about it.
And, if you feel like spending some time browsing through photos of hot guys, then consider yourself tagged.
