Top Ten Small Screen Sexies

Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Will Smith; the sexy movie star list has been done. Now its time to give the beautiful men who grace our television sets every week at 9 a time to shine!

It’s easy to reel off a list of names of attractive movie stars but we forget that there are another set of stars who are just as hot. Every week at 9 or 10pm, there is some guy that we tune into our favourite show for. That guy who makes the show that much more entertaining and sexy. Lets see the best of the bunch!

1. Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Mr Meyers is a crossover because he has been in movies too but his presence on the small screen is just as great. A former model, Jonathan has previously starred in TV dramas Gormenghast (from which he became a household name), The Tudors (2007) and most recently in Dracula. The epitome of the Irish bad boy, Meyers’ salary for Dracula has reportedly been withheld until he completes all 10 episodes of the series. The producers wanted to safe guard themselves unless Jonathan had any more issues with his alcoholism. Sexy right?

2. Brett Tucker

Not the most famous of the guys on the list but this sun kissed Australian gladiator is saying a lot these days. Known to us TV geeks as Harry Davis in Mistresses, Brett Tucker is one hot cookie. He had a small speaking role in Thor: The Dark World alongside fellow Aussie hunk Chris Hemsworth but we expect to see a lot from him soon.

3. Charles Michael Davis

Although he has been in popular shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Charles Michael Davis has come to the forefront as the vampire Marcel in The Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals. The half black and half Filipino actor/model is too cute for words. Something about his deep voice and intense eyes sends shivers all over me!

4. Kit Harrington

“You know nothing Jon Snow!” The best line ever! Kit Harrington is no stranger to the Game of Thrones geeks out there, myself included. He’s brooding looks and dark floppy hair is enough to make your knees quiver. Kit was in theatre before joing Game of Thrones but he is set to provide his vocal talents to How To Train Your Dragon 2. Excited to hear that Midlands accent!

5. Columbus Short

I’m not sure about you but I knew Columbus Short first as a dancer. He is best known for his role in Stomp The Yard alongside Chris Brown and most recently as Harrison Wright in ABC’s Scandal. Columbus is as smooth as they come, one of those guys who you would let lie to you cause he is just that fine!

6. Shemar Moore

An oldie but goodie, Shemar Moore appeared on the small screen as Malcolm Winters on The Young and the Restless. We’re British so we probably never saw that show. We knew him as Terry in The Brothers and that dude with the messed up canerows in Diary of a Mad Black Woman. Now he is FBI Profiler Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds, kicking down doors and catching bad guys while still staying suave and sexy.

7. Jensen Ackles

Another soap opera graduate, Jensen Ackles played Eric Brady on Days of Our Lives. Since then, he has gone on to play Jason Teague in Smallville and most recently fast food loving, beer drinking Dean Winchester in Supernatural alongside another hottie, Jared Padelecki. Supernatural’s tagline “Scary just got sexy” was obviously made just for him.

8. Idris Elba
<br /
So apparently, my babes decided to break my heart and have a baby with his girlfriend. Well, congratulations to her because Idris Elba is amazingly hot. Finding fame on shows like The Wire and Luther on our very own BBC One, Idris is also in movies too. A lovely British guy to fly the flag for us over seas, Idris is a sexy guy, all six foot three of him! Swoon!

9. Daniel Sunjata

Unless you watch Grey’s Anatomy or happened to catch a random episode of Law & Order, you wouldn’t really know David. He is currently a lead role on Graceland and when I saw his face on the trailer, I started watching. This beautiful Chicago native was enough reason to watch a show I have absolutely no interest in!

10. Robert Sheehan

We all know and love Robert from E4’s Misfits. For a show that was completely ridiculous (in a good way), he made it all worth it. He carried the first two seasons all on his own and when he left, it just wasn’t the same. Since Misfits Robert has gone on to star a movies, the most recent being The Mortal Instruments alongside Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower. That’s pretty good for a boy from the fields of Ireland.


What To Watch

So, recently a lot of the popular shows that we all know and love have either taken a break for a new season (Game of Thrones) or ended altogether (Breaking Bad). There are however, a few new shows that have popped up that are well worth the viewing. Also, new seasons have begun of some classics. Here is a selection of the best shows and movies to watch this coming week:

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit – (Universal @ 9pm)
Season 15 begins with a bang as at the end of S14, we saw Olivia abducted by a depraved psychopath who was obsessed with her. Fans of the show will be eager to know if our heroine is going to be okay. New viewers will love it because Law & Order: SVU is an amazing show that will have you hooked even if you’re not familiar with the characters.

The Face – (SkyLiving @ 9pm)
Episode 3 of Naomi Campbell’s attempt to rival Tyra’s America’s Next Top Model. The show hasn’t been as successful since its start but there are some jokes to be had. If only to watch Naomi be the Queen Diva Bitch, its worth tuning in.

Made in Chelsea – (E4 @ 10pm)
Season 5: For those that are too classy for TOWIE, get ready for the fun and frolics of the beautiful twenty somethings (and Cheska) from London’s trendiest area. The Spencer/Louise/Lucy story line is always going to be a fan favourite and is definitely one to rope in some newcomers!

Bloodsport – (Sky Action @ 9:40pm)
Jean-Claude van Damme plays an American Special Forces commander who goes AWOL to compete in the kumite – a claudestine martial arts contest held in Hong Kong (1988)

Do not let this deter newcomers as I am sure there will be new surprises to sink your teeth into…see what i did there? 😀

Elementary –  (SkyLiving @ 9pm)

Episode 3: This one is definitely a guilty pleasure. Its so bad, its awesome! For those that have been missing the void that was Desperate Housewives, this ones for you! Follow the happenings of maids Marisol, Zoila, Carmen, Rosie and Valentina.

Sleepy Hollow – (Universal @ 9pm)
Season 1, Episode 3: Abby has to face demons from her past after being targeted by the evil sandman who tortures people in their dreams. This one is a bit on the dark supernatural side for me, but theres something about the naivety of 18th century Ichabod Crane in 21st Centrury America that keeps me tuned in!

Play Misty For Me – (Sky Select @ 8:10pm)
Clint Eastwood stars as the radio DJ stalked by a psychotic female fan. The legendary actor makes his directorial debut in this awesome thriller from 1971.

Scandal – (More4 @10pm)

Bates Motel – (Universal @ 9pm)
Season1, Episode 7: Sheriff Romero covers up Shelby’s murder but why? Also,a mysterious newcomer checks into the motel and Norman is devastated by the death of his beloved dog Juno who by the way we have never seen….. This show is so creepy but amazing. The relationship between Norman and his mother is portrayed expertly…too well actually

Hustle & Flow – (Sky Thriller @ 10:50pm)

Oscar winning Jennifer Lawrence stars as quirky young window who strikes up a bond with a recently institutionalised Bradley Cooper. Fun loving film with Robert De Niro (2012)
