15 Hot as Hell TV Actors We Just Can’t Get Enough Of
by Effie Orfanides
TV has been home to countless hot actors, and we’re lucky enough to get new studs every season. Some have been on TV for years and some are just hitting their strides. Take a look at some of the hottest actors on the small screen.
Kit Harington, “Game Of Thrones”
The beloved Jon Snow may know nothing (or so we’ve heard), but perhaps he doesn’t need much of a brain to go with those smoldering good looks. Kit Harington, the actor who plays him, however, seems to have a good head on his shoulders. His role as spokesman for Jimmy Choo’s “Man” fragrance shows the intelligence to capitalize on his star power, as does his role in the ill-reviewed but enjoyable epic that was Pompeii.
Rupert Friend, “Homeland”
This Homeland star has made the hearts of many go pitter-patter and it’s easy to see why. Quinn is not only a great character on the show, but actor Rupert Friend is quite the handsome paramilitary officer. His previous films include The Boy In The Striped Pajamas and The Kid, but fans seem to think his role on Homeland suits him best.
Stephen Amell, “Arrow”
As Arrow’s Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, actor Stephen Amell is charged with running across rooftops and shooting a bow at bad guys, an interesting skill set required for the job. And if you haven’t seen the clips of him doing the salmon ladder, believe us, he’s in peak physical condition; his recent foray into the world of professional wrestling proved that. This hard-hitting hunk has had numerous TV roles prior to his stint as the Emerald Archer, and now he’s also started dabbling in film, appearing in this summer’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.
Ian Somerhalder, “The Vampire Diaries”
Talk about handsome! This guy isn’t nicknamed “Ian Smolderhalder” for nothing. Although this will be the last season you’ll get to see the actor on TVD, his career will always have a following (albeit of screaming females of all ages). Many were hoping that Ian would land the role of Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades series, but sadly, that didn’t happen.
Taylor Kinney, “Chicago Fire”
Something tells us that Taylor Kinney won’t stay single for long! His recent split from Lady Gaga caught us off-guard, but most women don’t mind that this hunk is single. Playing a firefighter on TV, his role fulfills plenty of fantasies. Kinney has also starred in Zero Dark Thirty and The Other Woman (one of our favorite films e-v-e-r!).
Norman Reedus, “The Walking Dead”
While this star is at an all-time high, the man who came to embody television’s favorite zombie slayer, Daryl Dixon, has been in the game a long time. His 1999 role as Murphy McManus in the cult favorite The Boondock Saints got him enough attention to earn him supporting roles in Blade II and Deuces Wild in 2002. Supplementing his current gig on The Walking Dead, Norman stars as himself in his own show, Ride with Norman Reedus, cruising around on two wheels to explore biker culture.
Colin O’Donoghue, “Once Upon A Time”
We’ve actually never seen a hotter Captain Hook! Born in Ireland, O’Donoghue’s brogue only makes him even more desirable. His role on Once Upon A Time has grown over the past couple of seasons—and so has his popularity. He’s easily one of the best-looking men in primetime.
Jensen Ackles, “Supernatural”
This handsome hunk has been hunting that which haunts us for nearly a decade, pausing only to star in the horror movie My Bloody Valentine. No doubt many a fan would love to take him up on such an opportunity. Both on an off camera, it’s not only Ackles’ good looks that make him a fan favorite; his playful antics and bad-boy-with-a-heart-of-gold persona sealed the deal.
Jesse Williams, “Grey’s Anatomy”
Jesse Williams has been smoking up TV screens for years. While he may be well-known for playing Dr. Jackson Avery on Grey’s Anatomy, he’s actually better known for his dreamy blue eyes. Jesse has been in the news a lot lately, especially after the speech he gave at the BET Awards. While some agree with what he said and others were offended by it, we can all agree that he’s one of the hottest men in primetime.
John Stamos, “Grandfathered”/”Fuller House”
Have mercy! Is it us or does John Stamos just keep getting better with age? Not only is he a great part of the Full House reboot (Fuller House Season 2 is expected to be released on Netflix soon), but he has also landed his own show (Grandfathered) in which he plays a super cool (and super sexy) grandfather. When Stamos isn’t bringing the Greek God vibes to the small screen, he’s touring with the Beach Boys.
Shemar Moore, “Criminal Minds”
It’s no surprise that Shemar Moore used to be a fashion model; he’s got a great body and a killer smile! Fans have loved seeing him on television week after week and it’s easy to see why. Before Criminal Minds, Moore was a star on The Young and The Restless. He has been filming movies in his spare time as well—you can catch him in The Bounce Back due out later this year.
Jared Padalecki, “Supernatural”
Portraying Sam on Supernatural to Jensen Ackles’ Dean, the younger of the fictional siblings seems to have gotten more of the muscle of the two. The on-screen brothers are so close in real life, actually, that Jensen served as Jared’s best man at his wedding to Genevieve Cortese. Yes, not only is he taken, but he married Ruby!
Josh Dallas, “Once Upon A Time”
He’s like a real-life Prince Charming! Josh Dallas plays the valiant Charming on Once Upon A Time. While he does tend to get a bit too emotional from time to time, he’s still pretty darn hot! Dallas met his wife, Ginnifer Goodwin, on the set of the hit ABC show (she plays Snow White), and the couple now has two little boys together. Seeing Josh with kids? Total swoon.
Matt Bomer, “American Horror Story: Hotel”
Matt Bomer was another name rumored to be up for the Fifty Shades gig, which is clearly a thing. Bomer may not have landed the role, but he’s still handsome as ever on American Horror Story: Hotel. After a string of movie roles, this Hollywood hot guy is returning to his TV roots, which means we get to see him more frequently!
D. B. Woodside, “Lucifer”
After a few season on Suits, D.B. Woodside set his sights on more otherworldly aspirations, landing the role of Amenadiel, angelic brother to the title character on Lucifer. High-powered lawyer turnsed handsome, heavenly hunk? That’s a transformation we can get behind!
