On my sexiest men list at least Padalecki gets to be on top (pun intended). His exotic features have that x-factor thing going on and even though he doesn’t always look ‘pretty’ – who wants a man to look pretty all the time, huh?
What with the longish hair, the height, an exceptionally hot body and the characteristic heavy voice, Padalecki certainly makes one a hell of a desirable combination. If you have seen the latest Jared Padalecki Rio De Janeiro pics you know exactly what I am talking about.
And if you haven’t yet, here’s what you missed!
The guy started out as a Dean Forrester on Gilmore Girls in 1999, and later went on to appear in slasher flicks like House of Wax and Friday the 13th. But obviously Supernatural was his claim to fame in the year 2005 in which he plays the role of Sam Winchester. Since Supernatural Season 8 has been officially picked up by CW it is good news that we will surely be seeing more of Sammy next year.
You should also check out the lesser know straight-to-DVD movie Christmas Cottage (with Peter O Toole) in which Padalecki plays the role of Thomas Kinkade, the painter of light. Even though the movie isn’t the usual stuff I like to watch, I found it heartfelt and sincere. And most of all, Padalecki is shown in a completely different light – something you don’t really think he is capable of considering most of his fame comes from the horror genre.
I enjoy watching even the most ridiculous movies of my favorite actors (guilty pleasure) and that is usually a bumpy ride to say the least. But if you don’t want to waste your time, stick to Christmas Cottage and go for Friday the 13th/House of Wax only if you are into run-of-the-mill horror.
Known for playing Alcide Herveaux in Alan Ball’s True Blood, Joe plays a werewolf who is secretly in love with Sookie Stackhouse, who by the way, already has her hands full of the hunkiest looking vampires in the state of Louisiana. Before that Manganiello has also appeared on shows like How I Met Your Mother, One Tree Hill and ER, but TB is by far his best performance yet.
True Blood is coming back for another season in another 34 days so hang in there! I love the fact the Manganiello has that virile look, and unlike the rest of them he leaves his hair be – rocking the whole salt-n-pepper routine. He also made an appearance alongside Ashton Kutcher, playing Alex in Two and a Half Men couple of weeks back.
Stuff to Watch Out For:
True Blood, Two and a Half Men, Til death, White Collar, One Tree Hill, Scrubs and Spider-Man 3.
I am not going to say he is a version of Brad Pitt because that would just be unfair. Hunnam is a lot more than just a pretty face and I suppose, he does have some very essential qualities. The minute you see him in a leather jacket, riding a Harley with his rugged charm, it will be love at first sight I warn you. If you want to see another side of him, watch Queer as Folk where he plays the role of a fifteen year old boy in love with the playboy who took his virginity. I particularly enjoyed his performance as Nikolas Nikelby which is an adorable film that you can watch over and over again. Hunnam too has that whole bad-ass routine going on about him – no wonder he was the perfect choice for Kurt Sutter’s Sons of Anarchy.
Stuff to check out:
Queer as Folk, Nicolas Nikelby, Sons of Anarchy. Sons of Anarchy is a brilliant show. A fabulous creation of Kurt Sutter, who by the way, is my role model :P. You will fall in love with just about every character. Just sit down for season 1 and let the story develop and you will see what I am talking about. I also enjoyed watching the Brit version of Queer as Folk, and Hunnam’s role is delightfully fresh and attention-grabbing.
Jensen is the quintessential super model face: The lips, the eyes, the high cheekbones, he is the story book depiction of good looks. When they write those Mills and Boons novels with gorgeous men, this is what they are basically describing. His smile melts mountain tops and his tears make kittens die, or so I’ve heard.
He hates his hair, so you never see him with longer hair anymore but you can get a glimpse of how long hair might have looked if you can find some episodes of Days of our Lives or Dark Angel. But of course, Supernatural is what you should be watching if you have any adoration for the guy. He plays Dean Winchester, older brother to Sam Winchester played by Jared Padalecki.
Stuff to Watch Out for:
Supernatural, My Bloody Valentine 3D, Dark Angel, Days of Our Lives. If you are really into the guy you might want to sit for Days of Our Lives, but if you are like me and not that inclined, you might want to catch some episodes of Dark Angel, in which his one-liners are a reminder of the whole Dean Winchester personality type. You can also watch Ten Inch Hero, in which he appeared alongside wife Daneel Harris (Harold & Kumar), as a punk-wannabe with odd hair and piercings who goes through the whole ugly duckling routine. The movie is, well, ahem, stupid, to say the least But its so stupid at times it will make you laugh at least for the sheer silliness of it. Warning: Daneel Harris is a phenomenally bad actress.
If you have seen the UK version of ‘Coupling’ you will know him right away. But if you have only seen the US version, then I don’t know you until you watch the British version first. Generally I am of the opinion that US versions are better off (Skins, Shameless, Being Human) but when it comes to Coupling, there is no other version that could even come close. It is without a doubt one of the funniest shows on television you have ever seen, and Davenport plays the lead role of Steve.
Stuff to Check Out:
Well FlashForward was a good show, and Davenport plays the character of Lloyd Simco. You end up feeling so sorry for him you don’t even care that he getting it on with Joseph Fiennes wife These days you can catch him in SMASH and although he looks very different from what you are used to, the role of Derek Willis is certainly a new beat. By the way, I am really loving Smash. He is also appeared in movies like Pirates of the Caribbean and the Talented Mr. Ripley.
Oh yeah, another topper on my list! That puppy dog look is enough to make us swoon but the guy is incredibly talented as well. Even though he hasn’t exactly been in the news recently, apart from a short stint on Supernatural as John Winchester (who is ironically Sam and Dean Winchester’s father well, its in the past of course but still its kind of hilarious). Matt also appeared in the television show South of Nowhere.
Stuff to Watch Out for:
Supernatural, South of Nowhere, The OC, 90210
[That's all for now --- will update this list in a couple of days and give you more guys to drool over! Until then you can give me your suggestions as well. ]
