Damn Sexy Men List

Alright folks, we've had alot of T & A lately, (see Dean's Future Hotties Post at Atomic Romance here). But what about us hetero ladies and gay guys? What hot celebrity crushes tickle our fancies? Well I have compiled my own completely arbitrary list here...but note I've put them in in "theme" the actual 1-9 numbering will be different.

Doctors..(er uh, "medical personnel")- starting with my very first crush...

8. Randolph Mantooth: Emergency! - I know this guy made my little 6 year old heart pitter-patter for this "hero" who went around saving people. Perhaps he was the actor who set the precedent for my Hero/DR fixations in the years ahead. Guess what? At the age of 63 this guy is still HOT! (see pic)..and throughout the years he's done alot of fundraising for Firefighters too. You can even watch old episodes on Hulu!

7. Alexander/Siddig el Fadil: Dr. Julian Bashir Deep Space Nine - What can I say, the smarter the better! Maybe it was the English accent or just his plain "Tall, Dark and Handsome" good looks which are so any case he was the only one on Deep Space Nine that was remotely.. "interesting" to me.

3. Hugh Jackman: The Fountain - All around hot, obsessed with his "endless love", historical drama and time travel! What more could you want!...well there's Wolverine, but who wants claws areas? And of course his definite Tall, Dark and Handsome qualifications go without saying...

4. Sean Maher: Dr Simon Tam Firely & Serenity - Again I have to go with the brilliant hero guy...(did you notice it's kind of a thing with me? I've never been attracted to so-called "bad boys"). He saves lives, isn't a jerk to his sister, and has very dry sense of humor... which does tickle..the funny bone (as it were... :P ). I hope we'll be seeing more work from Mr. Maher in the years ahead...on another Joss Whedon show maybe? (Please?)

Young 'uns - For the Raddle Crabber* in all of us...

6. Zachary Levi: Chuck - A nice, extremely geeky almost-graduate of Stanford who is busy saving the world while working at "Buy More"...Again, Tall (very!), Dark and Handsome...and very smart. I think you get the picture...I'm helpless in the face of uber-intelligent cute characters with a big slice of heroic goodness!

9. James Franco: MILK, Tristan & Isolde - Ok, I have to admit he caught the Beaniac's eye first, (they saw Tristan & Isolde in French class... of course)..and evidently there's some kind of Celebrity Incest Law (where one may NOT take a liking to the hot young dudes of one's offspring...) so I can only list him here purely for artistic.. er...aesthetic reasons. Oh hell, he's hot so go see MILK. You'll be glad you did...

2. Jason O'Mara: Sam Tyler Life on Mars - Oh my gawd, the Irish accent (not on the real life!), his cute twinkling blue eyes..can you tell he's my new hotness? This show is an American version of an original BBC production. It's really interesting,(a little bit of Sci-Fi & Cop show drama rolled into one).... and the music is SO cool, really authentic to the can watch back episodes on ABC even!

WRITERS - saved the BEST for last!

5. Alan Moore: Promethea, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen - This guy is a geeky girl's God...his work is legendary, and often incorporates uniquely feminine perspectives, which is rare in the comic world. I love that most of his graphic novels are sexy, adult and so historically dense (having a copy of the Dictionary of Imaginary Places handy is a must!). Plus the fact he's a Pagan, wears alot of kooky mystical jewelry, and isn't afraid to take on big bullies like DC Comics & Hollywood makes him a hero in my book!

1. Neil Gaiman!!!!: The Sandman, The Graveyard Book - Like Alan Moore, this amazing writer is very prolific...imaginative and damn sexy, and I'm not just taking about his mind! Did I mention he's Tall, Dark and Handsome? The mythologically rich Sandman series will really awaken you to his wonderful world; a little creepy, sometimes dangerous, but where a willingness to do good, be brave and resourceful in the face of life (and beyond!) is often the best we can hope for in this crazy world. I'd recommend some familiarity with classical knowledge, (by this I mean traditional Western European history & Greek/Roman mythology) to fully appreciate his work (doesn't hurt for Moore's stuff either), but you can enjoy it with all the "riga-ma-role" too. Like Moore, he's a geek girl's GOD, plus he has his own blog where you can read all about his real life thoughts and adventures too!

You know how to have a man crush. or men crush. or something.

That is an eclectic mix and some pretty good dudes there.

The Moody Minstrel said...

I remember when Randolph Mantooth appeared on the original Battlestar Galactica as a scientist trying to run away from the Eastern Alliance.

Some bloody lame acting there, Lou.

Considering I'd always been a fan of "Emergency!" as a little boy, it shattered my world.

Arkonbey said...

Randy Mantooth seems to have aged well.

Good list, but Alan Moore? Sure he writes great, but Weeeeird. And he's probably got a week's worth of food in that big ol' beard.

I should get Sweet Enemy to list hers. she's got a good group.

ladybug said...

Arkonbey - Alan Moore weird? Sure, but I guess I see him "more" as love-ably eccentric...and I'm not scared of hair (or lack thereof) on guys ain't a dealbreaker for me I guess.

Moody-Randy's been on several daytime soaps of late (which I haven't seen actually), but has developed quite a following from them evidently...

gracefulbird said...

OK, Don Snabulus. Your turn. If you leave out Kate Winslet I shall be very put out. :)

(WV = bleswat - wish it was poopie.)

Don Snabulus said...

I like my dames saucy. As Adam Sandler says, She Always Comes Home to Me. (the context was a bit different though...)

I'm having scary flashbacks and flashforwards (?) ....

"Rampart, the victim is in extreme pain..."
Randolf Mantooth as "Johnny Gage" in Emergency!

"One Adam Twelve,
"One Adam Twelve, see the man...." (another Jack Webb production)

flashforward: "Don't Tase me bro!

Thank you for not listing Erik Estrada

The Moody Minstrel said...

Or Henry Winkler.

Or John Travolta, for that matter.

ladybug said...

Panda & Moody - I have to admit...I never was attracted AT ALL to any of those guys you list...Yay for me I guess!

Dave said...

Here is something I often think about when trying to decide who the most beautiful woman is. You sit down in front of two television monitors. Side by side comparisons of one thousand different women, one second to decide per pair.
You prress either one of two buttons to decide. After the first round half are eliminated. Next you go through the remaining five hundred with two seconds to decide.

Again, the matches are purely random. Eventually you get down to just one. It takes some time...

Purely artificial however, based on just appearances.

To be fair my list was ALL T&A. It did have a very sexy Sean Connery in a swimsuit.

Randolph Mantooth- Loved him in Emergency. As I remember he was the one with the sense of humor on that show.

Siddig el Fadil- As you point out he has a very cool voice/ accent.

Hugh Jackman - I love that he can be Wolverine but also sings and dances.

Sean Maher - had some of the best straight man lines on Firefly.

Zach Levi - He makes that show, IMO. It wouldn't work without him.

James Franco - He was great in Pineapple Express. Love that celebrity incest law comment.

Alan Moore - I get where you're coming from but I don't really see Moore as someone who bothers with mundane stuff like personal grooming.

If you look at it you have a sort of "type" in that several of the actors have almost the same chin structure.

Also I think it's interesting that the male celebrities I think are attractive don't always match up with women's views. I'm pretty sure most women aren't as hot on Arnie as I am, for example.

I also find voices attractive. That's what sells Connery and some other male stars that are less attractive, IMO. Ben Kingsley is not a handsome man until he opens his mouth.

Great post!

ladybug said...

Thanks for the blow-by-blow review...hmmm I did not notice about the chin thing *weird*.

Yea, I know Alan seems freaky but hairy does not neccesarily mean stinky/unclean...(cue smug rethuglican comment about "dirty hippies"...); besides it's his mind I'm in love with!

Also a note about the voices - remember the Jamie Lee Curtis character in A Fish Called Wanda?...who got really steamed up over guys w/accents?

Yea, she's me.

I laughed so damn hard when I saw that move...

ladybug said...

PS - I simply HAVE to see Pineapple Express...sounds like a totally fun movie!

Dean Wormer said...

Ha! Kevin Klein was hysterical in that film as well. Forget Jamie Lee Curtis- you're Gomez Addams freaking out because Morticia drops a little French.

ladybug said...

Dean-you've got that bassackwards!

Snabby is Gomez, I'M Morticia!

and yes, you are correct about Kevin Kline...what makes it even more funny is the guy is quite a smarty pants in real life...but he pulls off the vicious dumbass part most excellently!
