Over the past year we’ve seen some pretty sexy men on our screens, both big and small, no innuendo intended. We thought we’d share our picks for the 12 sexiest men that steamed up our living rooms and Tumblr streams!

Let us be clear about the rankings on this one: These are all actors who’ve had major roles or been in some sort of central plot line on their respective TV shows/movies. There’s a reason we didn’t include people like Darren Criss or Ian Somerhalder, and it’s because we’re used to seeing their hotness. Let’s give the new guys a chance, shall we?

Disclaimer: Choices are absolutely biased on this author’s taste. Let us know who you think should be on the list in the comments below! Be sure to vote in the poll to let us know what you think.

At the end of this article, be sure to vote on the sexiest man of the year!

Colin O’Donoghue

How can we not put someone who is quite possibly the hottest character from the show?! Granted, Graham might’ve beaten him if he were still alive, but let’s not focus on that. Colin O’Donoghue is the actor who plays the pirate on Once Upon A Time, and we’ve easily fallen under his spell within the first few minutes we saw him.

C’mon, look at ‘em!

Stephen Amell


Arrow was one of the most highly anticipated TV shows this fall, and we probably weren’t the only ones who saw the ads and got persuaded to watch it solely for Stephen Amell…right? Even if that’s not the case, you can’t argue with the fact that he is one piece of eye candy most of us love.

Dean Geyer


Oh, Brody, how we love you. As one of the newest characters from Glee, Dean Geyer definitely helped spice this season up as a love interest for Rachel. We thank Ryan Murphy for introducing him the way he did, literally steaming hot straight from the shower.

If you’re reading this, Ryan, more shower scenes please!

Adam Levine


The singer turned actor made his debut on American Horror Story this season, and even though we didn’t get enough of him as we’d like, we still loved being able to see him on something other than The Voice. Arguably one of the hottest lead singers of any band this year, Adam Levine has definitely made an impression on our easily impressionable hearts.

Matt Lauria


Those of you who don’t watch Parenthood may not recognize him, but this post might make you check it out, just to see that face. He plays Ryan, an ex-army man who’s come to fall in love with Amber this season just as we’ve fallen in love with him. There’s even a scene where he and Amber go wading at the beach.

If that doesn’t make you realize how beautiful he is…we don’t know what will.

Rupert Friend


Not only does Rupert have amazing eyes but he plays one of the most complex and coolest characters we’ve seen on television. We love him on Homeland, and especially love his baddassery. Yes, that’s a word. There’s just something about Rupert that makes us go head-over-heels, and we’re not sure what it is. Maybe it was the moment in Homeland season 2 where we saw his bare behind? You know the writers of the show added that in just for us Friend fans.
