80 – Chris Colfer
You will have remembered this guy if you have ever watched the amazing TV show Glee. It will be soon making a comeback with news of the sad death of Cory Monieth in the show, and this is the perfect opportunity to check out this guy once again.
Admittedly he isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and he might be a bit young for some but for others, he’s the best thing since sliced bread and you can tell this from the rather impressive fan following he seems to have accumulated since he first appeared on the show.
One thing that you may not know about Chris Colfer, who was originally born in California on May 27th, 1990, is that he was once much bigger than the size of man you see today. Back in 2007, he worked hard and with plenty of exercise and a healthy and balanced diet, he managed to lose 40 pounds. Doesn’t he look fantastic for it, girls?
In Glee, he plays Kurt Hummel, and this role has won him a whole host of awards. At the Golden Globes, for example, he won awards for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, and he was awarded for a couple of Emmy’s as well as appearing on Time’s list of 100 most influential people back in April 2011.
Hot and influential – what more could you possibly ask for?
79 – Michael Kelly
Michael Joseph Kelly is actually 44 years old and was originally born in Pennsylvania on 22nd of May, 1969. He might be older than most TV actors but he’s certainly hot, and as well appearing in some of the most amazing films of our time, he has also had the pleasure of starring in some pretty impressive TV shows, hence the fact that we are slotting him into our list.
There was Changeling back in 2008 with Angelina Jolie, Chronicle in 2012, Dawn of the Dead in 2004 and even The Adjustment Bureau in 2011. It is the role of Doug Stamper in House of Cards that has made him a household name these days, and this has certainly invoked a fairly impressive fan following, especially among the female fans of the show!
He’s been in a fair few TV shows over the years including the brilliant The Good Wife in which he starred back in 2011, and there was also a few Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior shows that he appeared in too. He’s certainly keeping himself busy and we are sure that his female fan base certainly aren’t complaining!
78 – Brendan Robinson
It was ABC’s Pretty Little Liars that made Brendan Robinson a household name, and within this TV show he plays the part of Lucas Gottesman.
Not just an actor for TV, he also classes himself as a producer and writer, and it would seem that the young guy has come a long way over recent years.
He was born in Oregon on February 28th, 1990 and has also been in seen in shows like How I Met Your Mother, Good Luck Charlie, Weeds and even Cold Case.
In case TV wasn’t enough for you, there is a film called Feels So Good that will star Brendan Robinson and should be out at some point later on this year. It is currently in post-production and we are super excited to see it!
77 – LL Cool J
Perhaps better known for his film roles such as Deep Blue Sea and Any Given Sunday, but also known to be a Hip Hop and rap artist, LL Cool J has been playing his hand at TV acting recently which is why we have decided to fit him nicely into this list. He didn’t make the Hottest Black Men – there were simply too many to choose from, so we feel that he definitely belongs here. We wanted to see his beautiful smile for a start.
James Todd Smith was born in New York on January 14th, 1968 making him a whopping 45 years old. We definitely didn’t think he was that old! His nickname/stage name LL Cool J is actually an abbreviation of Ladies Love Cool James – LL Cool J and as well as romantic ballads that he released in the 90’s such as “Hey Lover” and “I Need Love”, he also has a few harder style rap and Hip Hop songs under his belt, with 13 studio albums under his belt and even two compilations of greatest hits. He actually released another album this year called Authentic and although we haven’t listen to it yet, it’s definitely on our to-do list!
More recently, LL Cool J has taken a step back from music and acting in films to star as Sam Hanna in the CBS drama and crime TV show called NCIS: Los Angeles. It looks as if this may be a long term thing for dark-chocolate cutie too – there are no films coming out soon that will star this guy.
76 – James Tupper
We’ve had a few Brits and Americans on the list but now we come to a Canadian and what a hot Canadian he sure is! James Tupper was born in Nova Scotia in Canada on August 4th, 1965 making him a respectable 48 years old. We didn’t believe he was that old when we found out either! He certainly doesn’t look two years away from fifty, that’s for sure!
Another film and TV actor combined, you will have seen him in the 2011 film Mr. Popper’s Penguins as well as the 2012 film Playing for Keeps and the 2006 film Men in Trees. It was perhaps his role in the NBC medical drama TV show Mercy that ran from 2009-2010 that made him a household name, and you will also have noticed him in such delights as Grey’s Anatomy in which he played Dr. Andrew Perkins, and more recently the relatively new TV series called Revenge, in which he plays David Clarke. There are a couple of smaller films coming out over the next few months starring James Tupper but, for the most part, if you want to check him out, you will just have to watch Revenge… What a shame!
75 – Luke Kleintank
He’s hot, handsome and perfectly chiseled and also in one of the coolest TV shows around. It was his role as Elliot Leichter in Gossip Girl that first shot him to fame, and since then he has gone on to star in The Young and the Restless as Noah Newman. You can see him these days in the hit show Pretty Little Liars playing Travis, and there are also a couple of films coming out over the next year or so starring this cute guy.
Just one example of the films that you are going to see him in is 1000 to 1 in which he plays the part of Brendan Trelease, and will also star David Henrie. You will also see him in Sacrifice in 2014, making his total film count now up to three. It would appear that he is slowly branching away from TV and we won’t complain – we don’t mind in the slightest! The more we get to see this cutie, the better.
74 – Sean Murray
Another NCIS favorite, Sean Harland Murray first struck our attention many years ago when he played the part of Thackery in the utterly brilliant film Hocus Pocus with Bette Midler and Sarah Jessica Parker. Come on – admit it! We’ve all seen that film a thousand times and loved it more with every single repeat viewing!
These days he is more known for playing the infamous Timothy McGee in the CBS show NCIS, plus also starring in the parent series to NCIS called Jag in which he plays Danny Walden.
A far cry from the young lad that we fell in love with when he was in Hocus Pocus, Sean Murray is now 35 years old. He was born in Maryland, USA on November 15th, 1977 which means he will soon be 36! Yet another guys whose age we can’t believe. What is with the guys in TV and film? Why do they always look much younger than they actually are? It’s just not fair, is it ladies?
73 – Trevor Donovan
Trevor Donovan Neubauer is his real name and he was born in California, USA on October 11th, 1978. This means that the blonde haired, blue eyed beauty is now 34 years old. Another guy that was older than we thought he was – go figure!
This guy is best known for his role as Teddy Montgomery in the TV series 90210 – the most recent one, not the one that was years ago, of course!
Not just known for 90210, it would seem that this guy has a few films under his belt as well. The 2012 film Savages received pretty impressive reviews in the media and also starred Blake Lively, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Taylor Kitsch. There was also the film Surrogates that was released back in 2009, plus a couple of other TV series too! You may remember him from The Client List in which he played Dashiell Codd, or even Drop Dead Diva in which he played a guy called Keith.
Luckily for us ladies that cannot get enough of Trevor Donovan, there is a film coming out soon that is called Wonderland. This family drama is said to be in post-production and is also said to star Christina Milian plus Alicia Witt. We are quite excited for this!
72 – T.J. Thyne
You may remember him from Bones – he plays an entomologist called Dr. Jack Hodgins. Not just an actor in TV however, he also has a few films under his belt including How the Grinch Stole Christmas back in 2000, and even Erin Brockovich and Ghost World that came out in 2011 and 2001 respectively.
Born in Boston, USA on March 7th, 1975, T.J. Thyne is a 38 year old Pisces that has had a pretty impressive career behind him considering he’s not considered to be a massive household name as such. You may have remembered him from the one episode of Friends in which he played Dr. Oberman – that was back in 1998. For now, you’ll just need to check out more Bones if you need your fix. It’s a great TV show though so we aren’t complaining too much.
71 – Barry Sloane
We have finally come to another Brit on our list of Top 100 TV Actors 2013-2014. He is actually from Liverpool in the UK and was born on the 10th of February in 1981 which makes him fairly young in the grand scheme of things. Most of the actors that we have looked at so far have been slightly older – this guy is only 32 years old.
He’s been around for a few years, especially within the TV land of Britain. Now seen in the hit show Revenge as the part of Aiden Mathis, he was also in the British TV show Holby City as well as Doctors (a daytime TV soap) and even played a part in The Bill and Casualty. It has been only recently that he has been seen in American TV shows and it would appear that this was a great move for the beautiful British man.
He will be a fantasy/drama film in 2014 called Noah which will see him starring alongside Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly and Logan Lerman which clearly means his move to USA TV has definitely been a great one for him. You’ll also see Anthony Hopkins in this film as well as Russell Crowe and Douglas Booth. You just know that this will end up being a massive film – especially with those great names in there!
70 – Eric Steinberg
The youngest of two kids, Eric D. Steinberg was born in Washington, D.C. and is an actor that is perhaps best known for his role of the father of Emily Field (Wayne Field) in the hit TV show, Pretty little Liars. This show seems to have features a lot in this list of Top 100 TV Actors 2013-2014 so maybe it’s time to watch it if you haven’t already.
A keen traveler, he spent a lot of his childhood in Montana and has also had the pleasure of visiting Korea and Thailand, and as well as being famous for being in Pretty Little Liars, he has also been in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, The Mentalist and even Torchwood.
Not quite as conventionally attractive as some of the actors we have featured in this list, he certainly has that tall, dark and handsome thing going on about him and it would appear that he has developed himself quite the fan base, especially after his stint in Pretty Little Liars.
Who knows what could come up next for this hot actor of 2013-2014!
69 – Matthew Gray Gubler
Have you ever seen Criminal Minds? If you have, you’ve probably noticed Matthew Gray Gubler already. You will also have noticed him in the 2009 film 500 Days of Summer as well as the 2007 film Alvin and the Chipmunks. Sticking with the theme of Alvin and the Chipmunks, there is a fourth one announced and once again, this hot TV actor will play the voice of Simon.
Back to Criminal Minds and Matthew plays the part of Dr. Spencer Reid. Back to real life and this guy was born in Las Vegas, believe it or not, and currently stands at 33 years of age with his date of birth being March 9th, 1980. He’s been acting since about 2004 when he was in the TV show Arrested Development and aside from a couple of films he has coming out, it would seem that he is staying with Criminal Minds for just now. Acting is not the only pie he seems to have his fingers in either; he also classes himself as a fashion model, director, photographer and painter. It must be great to have so many talents under his belt, don’t you think? We’d watch him on TV and then let him model for us anyway!
68 – Eric Szmanda
This guy is most known for his role in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and if you are a firm follower, you will probably already recognize him better as Greg Sanders in the CBS police drama show. Not just a TV actor, Eric Szmanda has also appeared in his fair share of films too – in 2002, we saw him in The Rules of Attraction alongside the delectable Ian Somerhalder, and that is just one example!
Originally from Wisconsin, Eric Szmanda was born on July 24th, 1975, making him stand at a rather respectable 38 years old! Isn’t it amazing how much older these guys than you thought they were!
For now, you can continue to see this guy in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. It doesn’t look like he has any other films coming out at any point soon so the TV show will just have to do!
67 – Gustaf Skarsgard
You might remember the name – Alexander Skarsgard is the hot blonde guy in the show True Blood. Well Gustaf Skarsgard is Alexander’s younger brother. Born in Sweden on 12th November, 1980, this sibling is a bit younger standing at just 32 years old. He’s been acting since 1989 however – there are a few things that you may have seen him in.
For now, you may have noticed that this guy is in the TV show – Vikings in which he plays the part of Floki. Wherever you may have seen him, you’re not likely to forget his face at any point soon – it would seem that he is to stay in the TV show and with TV shows like this, you know it is only going to go from strength to strength!
66 – Matt Milne
This guy was in the amazing film War Horse back in 2011. He was also in Wrath of the Titans as one of the elite guards. Now you can see him in the amazingly brilliant British TV show that has taken the world by storm – Downton Abbey, playing the part of Alfred Nugent.
Originally born in Hereford in the UK in 1990, he hasn’t been around for long in the acting world but he has certainly played his part in some of the most well known and respected films and TV shows of our time. Downton Abbey, for example, has taken the UK by storm and everyone is waiting with bated breath for the next installment. We can only assume that from this point, this guy’s career is going to sky rocket! We certainly hope so anyway – the cracking ginger hair and pretty smile seem to have drawn us in.
65 – Jim Parrack
Some of us will remember this guy as the super cute yet rather simple Hoyt Fortenberry in the hit TV series True Blood. He was also in the TV series Alcatraz, playing the part of Guy Hastings. He was LCPL. Peter Kerns in Battle Los Angeles in 2011, and has also been in a couple of episodes of Criminal Minds. Is there anything this guy can’t do?
He is relatively unheard of in some houses but in others, he’s the biggest attraction. He’s not conventionally good looking but there is something about him that has the girls screaming, and you certainly can’t ignore that! He is a guy that had our office divided – we imagine he’s much like Marmite. You either love him or you hate him.
For those that love him (and Marmite too!) he has been a VERY busy boy recently and has a string of films and shorts coming out. A Night in Old Mexico, for example, is currently in post-production and will see Jim Parrack starring alongside Robert Duvall and Jeremy Irvine. There is also The Labyrinth that is due to be released in 2014 that will also see James Franco starring alongside the vampire-lover!
64 – Clive Standen
This guy is another British actor that has made the list, and before you argue against that fact saying that you don’t know who he is, let us tell you what this guy has been in. He’s currently in Vikings, playing the part of Rollo. He was in the British TV series Camelot too playing the part of Gawain. Robin Hood is another TV show that saw him acting as the role of Archer. He played Private Harris is a couple of episodes of Dr. Who, and he was even in Waking the Dead, another British show.
Born in Northern Ireland on 22nd July, 1981, he stands at an impressive 32 years old and shows no signs of slowing down at any point soon. It would appear that this Brit has been rather underrated, especially when you consider that he has only really been acting since about 1994.
Unfortunately, for those of you that are lusting after this guy, he is happily married with three kids. We can all dream though, right ladies?
63 – David Walton
He certainly has the looks, doesn’t he? David Walton is dark haired, dark-eyed and dark-looking and has all the ladies swooning. Standing at 34 years old, he was born in Massachusetts on October 27th, 1978. He’s been acting since around 2002 but seems to have racked up quite an impressive resume over the years.
He was in the beautifully amazing Burlesque film with Cher and Christina Aguilera back in 2010, and has since been in a film with Julia Stiles called The Makeover which was released in this year. He was also in Fired Up! back in 2009. He has a couple of films coming out soon too, just in case you were interested – Think Like a Man Too is out in 2014 and will see David Walton working alongside Kevin Hart, who we all know is a damn funny guy!
It’s New Girl that you will probably know David Walton from – he plays Sam in the hit TV show. Unfortunately, he’s not up for grabs now though – he married an actress back in 2011 called Majandra Delfino and in June 2012, they welcomed their first daughter into the world. Reapeat after me – awww!
62 – Theo Rossi
We love Sons of Anarchy right now. We are especially said that Charlie Hunnam pulled out of the lead role in Fifty Shades of Grey, but that’s not to say that there isn’t plenty more eye-candy to admire. After all, there’s this guy too…
Theo Rossi plays the part of Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz in the hit FX TV series, and his latino looks have certainly helped things along for him. He has a stunning smile and although he looks a little on the badass side, that’s probably because of his character more than for his actual personality.
He’s a good guy deep down – he does a lot of charity work for military men and women, and even founded “Staten Strong” after Hurricane Sandy hit. He has already rebuilt two homes and is currently building a third. What a nice guy!
Not just known for Sons of Anarchy, Theo Rossi has been in a few films too, and perhaps the oddest one was Cloverfield which puzzled most of us here in the Herinterest office. He was also in Kill Theory back in 2008. It doesn’t appear that he has many films coming out soon however – it would seem that the Sons of Anarchy show is working well for him right now.
61 – George Eads
Just take a look at this guy – he’s tall, dark and handsome and he ticks all the right boxes for millions of women all over the world. His role in the hit CBS police drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation has certainly helped things along, and his position as Nick Stokes in the show will be remembered for a long time! He has been in a few films over the years and even starred in a couple of episodes of Two and a Half Men, but it would seem that the CSI show gave him the big break he needed to become a household name.
Born in Texas on March 1st, 1967, the 46-year old actor originally moved to LA in California in a borrowed pick-up truck, and worked hard at getting his dream before he finally got there. It just goes to show that with a little persistence, you will get there in the end!
Funnily enough, back in March 2009, George Eads was voted as one of the Sexiest TV Actors in the TV Guide special edition issue. We told you he was hot.
So there you have it – the next installment in our great series of 100 Hottest TV Actors 2013-2014… What do you think of the list so far? Has it met your expectations? Who do you think will be coming next? We don’t want to ruin things for you but just think about it this way – we have 60 more spots left and a whole load of actors. Where will Stephen Moyer from True Blood come? What about Rupert Friend? We can’t possibly forget about Ian Somerhalder either….
We are excited to bring the next batch of twenty hot male actors… Are you?
