2015 is almost over, which means it’s once again time to celebrate the hunkiest hunks who enflamed our loins and set our hearts aflutter this year. Yes, these are the gooey-eyed super-studs who FLOODED OUR BASEMENTS in movies, TV, and beyond. And – whooooeeee – from the cast of Star Wars to the ENTIRE STAFF at ABC World News Tonight, there was certainly no shortage of pop culture eye-candy. Let’s look.
Bug-eyed bae Rami Malek from the smartest show on television Mr Robot; and the smoldering, drool-inducing Aidan Turner from BBC’s Poldark (which is only the best thing since Downtown Abbey, don’tyouknow).
Perennial “hottest hunk “Avan Jogia who camped it up this year in Tut (wearing the most DIVINE statement necklaces): and Days of Our Lives gay mantrap Christopher Sean – who got lost in storyline limbo when the new headwriters shamefully issued a NO HOMO decree. (And why is nobody talking about that?)
Downtown go-go legend/perfume mogul/renaissance man Matthew Camp; and World of Wonder’s very own social media editor and WOW Report contributor Nigel Andrew.
Trans model, Instagram star, and the pride of New York’s Callen-Lorde Community Health Center (where he works) Laith Ashley de la Cruz: and rogue boy-bander Zayn Malik, who had a helluva year – breaking Directioners hearts, starting feuds left and right, and teasing us with the prospect of the hottest solo career since Beyoncé. Yes, I just went there.
Yummy Gotham villains Cameron Monaghan and Corey Michael Smith – who play the not-Joker and soon-to-be Riddler, respectively. (Corey, you might recall, had a small but very pivotal role in this year’s indie darling/lesbian period piece Carol)
Recently out freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy who became an instant darling of the gay press; and trans activist/model/YouTuber Aydian Dowling who came THISCLOSE to landing a Men’s Health magazine cover when he made the finalist list in their Ultimate Guy competition. WE LOVE YOU, AYDIAN!
Star Wars stars Oscar Isaac and John Boyega – the most fanfic-ready besties since Castiel and Dean Winchester…
… and Adam Driver who played the too-cute-to-really-be-villainous Kylo Ren. Oh, what I wouldn’t give to sit on that nose…
New York City sheriff’s deputy/internet sensation Miguel Pimentel, who was recently approached by Playgirl to pose nude in a sexy cop-themed photoshoot. FINGERS CROSSED, amiright?
ABC World News Tonight’s David Muir, Gio Benitez, Matt Gutman, Tom Llamas, and Rob Marciano. I mean… I want to see the person in charge of hiring over there and give them a big old hug.
Empire‘s oh-so-sensitive loverboy Jussie Smollet; and American Horror Story‘s doe-eyed hump-monkey Matt Bomer
And returning champs:
Jack Falahee who plays the wildly attractive/morally suspect gay law student on How to Get Away With Murder
…Geek god Chris Hardwick…
… The Walking Dead’s Steve Yeun (Pleasedon’tdieGlennPleasedon’tdieGlennPleasedon’tdieGlenn)…
… and nerdy white boys with really good hair: SNL‘s Colin Jost and Grant Gustin aka Barry Allen aka THE FLASH.
