Everyone's favourite serial killer. I'm not fond of the photo IMDB has of him, but if you've ever watched Dexter or Six Feet Under you've seen just how much charisma and sexiness MCH exudes.

5. Will Smith

Willard Carroll "Will" Smith, Jr. (born September 25, 1968) is an American actor, comedian, producer, rapper, and songwriter. He has enjoyed success in television, film, and music.

His rebooted Spock was a sexy revelation.

How could anyone resist an impish, self-deprecating sense of humour like this man has? Plus he's handsome and athletic. You can keep Tom Welling, it's always been Michael for me!

These days I'm watching him in Impastor. This is an excellent vehicle for Michael as it allows him to use his comedic skills, which he has in abundance!

The darkly humorous, provocative drama stars Sam as the heroic, "Aidan", a sensual and brooding vampire. His excellent work was noticed soon after the show's premiere, as Sam received a ...

Not conventionally handsome but a good actor (see his fine turn in season 1 of Dexter) with a great deal of charisma.

13. Aidan Turner

Aidan Turner was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1983. After graduating from the Gaiety School of Acting in 2004, Aidan appeared in a number of stage productions, many with Ireland's national theatre, The Abbey.

As True Blood's Eric Northman his scenes with Anna Paquin makes for onscreen sparks.

16. André Benjamin

Actor | Four Brothers

André Benjamin was born on May 27, 1975 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA as Andre Benjamin.

I loved him in Idlewild. This guy has it all: he can sing, he can act and he is so handsome. What more could you ask for?

That accent, that smile, that ass...

18. Bradley James

British-American actor, Bradley James, won his first role on the BBC pilot Dis/Connected. Show creators were so impressed with his work that they would go on to cast him as the young King Arthur in the hit show Merlin (2008) which aired on BBC & NBC. Of the eventual cast, James was the only cast ...

Was history's Arthur Pendragon really this hot? In Merlin, Bradley James has showed that he has a strong talent for comedy, I would love to see him do more of this. He's just a natural. In addition to being a lovely hunk of man, he's an excellent actor - anyone who watched the finale of Merlin can attest to that. He and Colin were absolutely brilliant in those final scenes together.

And of course, Bradley was excellent in iZombie and I am looking forward to seeing him in his new series as Damion.

His father, Winston, is from Sierra Leone and worked at Ford Dagenham; his mother, Eve, is from Ghana and had a clerical duty. Idris attended school in Canning Town, where he first became involved in acting, before he dropped...

He could easily have played Thor without needing to bulk up coz Idris already has the body of a god! (Instead they cast him as Heimdall, the guardian of Asgaard's rainbow bridge.)

22. Kevin Alejandro

Actor | Arrow

Kevin Alejandro was born on April 7, 1976 in San Antonio, Texas, USA as Kevin Michael Alejandro. He is an actor and producer, known for Arrow (2012), Southland (2009) and True Blood (2008). He has been married to Leslie de Jesus Alejandro since February 14, 2004. They have one child.

Everytime I see this actor, he just blows me away with the chances he takes and the versatility he shows. Plus Kevin is veeerrrry easy on the eyes.

23. Timothy Olyphant

Actor | Justified

From Timothy Olyphant's first screen appearances, such as his two-minute bit in The First Wives Club (1996), to "Nicko", whose presence at times dwarfed the island in A Perfect Getaway (2009), he has been a force to be reckoned with.

Born in Hawaii, Timothy David Olyphant was raised in Modesto, ...

I've had a crush on him ever since Deadwood. Timothy, please grow your mustache again!

24. Colin Firth

Actor | A Single Man

Colin Andrew Firth was born into an academic family in Grayshott, Hampshire, England. His mother, Shirley Jean (Rolles), was a comparative religion lecturer at the Open University, and his father, David Norman Lewis Firth, lectured on history at Winchester University College (formerly King Alfred's...

Another yummy Scot!

He returned to the UK, for a 6 month Shakespeare semester with the United States International University of San Diego, but left to star in the musical production of "Anything Goes," with Elaine Page.

Those blue eyes, that laugh, John is so delicious!

27. Simon Baker

Actor | The Mentalist

Simon Baker was first recognized in 1992, when he received Australia's prestigious Logie award for Most Popular New Talent. Upon relocating to Los Angeles with his family, Baker was immediately cast in the Academy Award winning film L.A. Confidential (1997).

Our favourite Mentalist has a drop-dead smile, gorgeous blond hair and an ozzy accent to die for. The fact that he is such a devoted family man just adds to his appeal.

28. Tim Kang

Actor | Rambo

Tim Kang was born on March 16, 1973 in San Francisco, California, USA as Yila Timothy Kang. He is an actor and producer, known for Rambo (2008), Two Weeks Notice (2002) and The Forgotten (2004).

So glad The Mentalist producers finally gave the viewers what we wanted and showed us a shirtless Cho in a recent episode! More please.

29. Tahmoh Penikett

He is the son of former Yukon premier Anthony David John Penikett (Tony). A graduate of the Victoria Motion picture school, Tahmoh also studied at the Lyric School of Acting in Vancouver. Tahmoh and his family (his father, and his twin sisters Sarah and Stephanie) make their home in Vancouver, ...

If you've ever seen Dollhouse you would know why Tahmoh is so freakin' hawt!

30. Michael Shanks

Actor | Stargate SG-1

Michael Shanks was born on December 15, 1970 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada as Michael Garrett Shanks. He is an actor and producer, known for Stargate SG-1 (1997), Stargate: Continuum (2008) and Elysium (2013). He has been married to Lexa Doig since August 2, 2003. They have two children.

The older Michael gets, the sexier he gets. I liked him in Stargate but it wasn't until the later seasons that we got to see his tougher, grittier side. That's when like turned to love.

31. Matt Bomer

Actor | The Normal Heart

Matthew Staton Bomer was born in Webster Groves, Greater St. Louis, Missouri, to Elizabeth Macy (Staton) and John O'Neill Bomer IV, a Dallas Cowboys draft pick. Matt was raised in Spring, Texas, and educated at Klein High School, near Houston. After school, he attended Carnegie Mellon University in...

How can someone be this good looking, be such a genuinely nice person AND sing so beautifully? If Matt Bomer didn't already exist, we would have to invent him. Sigh. (Tx for the reminder Inmaculada, can't believe I left Matt out in the 1st round!)

32. Tom Hiddleston

Actor | The Avengers

Thomas William Hiddleston was born in Westminster, London, to English-born Diana Patricia (Servaes) and Scottish-born James Norman Hiddleston. His mother is a former stage manager, and his father, a scientist, was the managing director of a pharmaceutical company. He started off at the preparatory ...

When I first created this list Tom wasn't on my radar. Since then I have corrected this terrible, terrible error and have gotten to know his work. This led to watching many YouTube vids of Tom being interviewed and dancing. The verdict? He is sexy, charming, unfailingly courteous and just generally delightful. I'm looking forward to seeing his Hank Williams biopic "I Saw the Light" in 2016.

33. Colin Morgan

Actor | Merlin

Colin Morgan is a Northern Irish film, television, theater and radio actor who attended Integrated College Dungannon, winning the 'Denis Rooney Associates Cup' for best overall student in the third year, before gaining a National Diploma in Performing Arts from the Belfast Institute of Further and ...

Colin's charm has been a slow build for me but I find that the older he gets the handsomer he gets. His post-Merlin work has seen him with a beard, which suits him very well, and in 18th and 19th century period costume which really suits him. He has built up a very favourable reputation in the U.K. as a skilled and versatile actor and I would love to see his profile rise in North America, as he so richly deserves.

34. Robert Downey Jr.

Actor | Iron Man

Robert Downey Jr. has evolved into one of the most respected actors in Hollywood. With an amazing list of credits to his name, he has managed to stay new and fresh even after over four decades in the business.

Downey was born April 4, 1965 in Manhattan, New York, the son of writer, director and ...

Like a fine wine...

35. Tom Ellis

Didn't know of him before 'Lucifer' but he has turned me into a big fan.
