The 20 Hottest Men of Horror TV!

Earlier this month we celebrated 20 Horror Movie Hotties that get our pulses racing. Now it’s time to give the guys on the small screen their equal due.  Here’s our admittedly subjective list of the top 20.

 

20. Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow)

There’s no “ick” in Tom Mison’s Ichabod Crane. Even though his diet may confuse us (and him)…

ichabodstraw

And even though he may not be the smoothest customer…

ichabodtree

And even if he is basically daring us to make a teabag joke by doing this:

sleepy-hollow

We still adore him. (By the way, Ich, you’re doing it wrong.)

19. John J. York (Werewolf)

Back in 1987, York pioneered the now-standard “hot guy who gets bitten by a werewolf always seems to wake up naked in strange places” cliche. (BLESS HIM.)

Like, say, the beach:

werewolfbeachwideb

Brr! But Eric Cord always found time to catch up on the latest news, even if he was nude and in a stranger’s barn:

18. Mike Vogel (Bates Motel)

Bates-Motel-Mike-Vogel

While Vogel’s character on Bates turned out to be far from Officer Friendly, can you blame the town for falling for those classic good looks? This smile could melt the butter on your biscuit:

And yes, we will check the rear view, thanks.

17. Kirk Jones (Blade: The Series)

While Blade didn’t last too long, they did get one thing right: casting Kirk Jones in the title role. His name may have been Blade, but his weapon of choice was clearly those guns.

16. Russell Tovey (Being Human)

In a word, YES. We sure should, George. Especially if this might end up happening:

And out actor Tovey even managed to look adorable mid-cry:

15. Ian Somerhalder (Vampire Diaries)

vampireian

Smolderhalder Smoldering Somerhalder’s vampire Daman is a bad boy, and that’s why he gets all the best lines, and the best loaded glances:

14. Nelson Lee (Blade: The Series)

blade

Do all half-vampire assassins’ tech specialists look this good? Because if so, I’m clearly in the wrong line of work. Nelson Lee proved that even the geeks should be able to bring the muscle in this genre.

13. DJ Cotrona (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series)

DJ Cotrona stepped into the iconic role of Seth Gecko from the movie, and in no time we were saying, “George who?”

I mean, I don’t remember Clooney ever rocking this look:

12. James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

409_SomethingBlue1

While SoCal native Marsters was fetching in the bleach-blond role of Brit baddie Spike, much of his charm came from his feck-all attitude. Observe:

11. Joe Manganiello (True Blood)

Showoff. No, keep going, by all means!

10. Dylan O’Brien and Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf)

1x09-wolf-s-bane-derek-and-stiles-24163729-1280-720

The duo that launched a thousand squees, Teen Wolf’s Derek (Hoechlin) and Stiles (O’Brien) took bromance to a whole new level, creating (and then continually feeding) a slash romance for the ages.

9. Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood)

Is it hot in here or is it just Eric Northman? (Hint: It’s just Eric Northman.)

8. Mehcad Brooks (True Blood)

Mehcad-Brooks

While we’re talking True Blood, can we have a second helping of Eggs? I mean, DAMN.

And he even looks amazing with his clothes on:

7. Teddy Sears (American Horror Story)

AmericanHorrorStory-patrickb

Oh, Teddy. Allow us to detail how we fell for your adorably doomed gay hunk Patrick in this pictorial essay:

teddy-sears-rubbermanb

teddy-searsclippingb

teddysearsbunsb

I think that pretty much sums it up!

6. Jared Padalecki (Supernatural)

While his small-screen bro may be hogging a lot of the attention thanks to his bromance with a handsome angel, let’s not overlook the considerable charms of “the other Winchester.”

5. Evan Peters (American Horror Story)

Evan_Peters_as_Kit_Walkerb

Peters has appeared in every season of American Horror Story thus far, but our favorite character is probably adorable lug Kit Walker from Asylum. Just look how he can work the room during a loonybin dance-off:

kitdancing

But heck, we even fell for him when he was playing a teenage psychopath in Murder House. Can you blame us?!

4. Sam Witwer (Being Human USA)

samwitwer

Sam Witwer’s face defies description. It can go from handsome to otherworldly in the flick of a fang:

aidanvampsout

And then back to goofy…

aidangoofyface

And then HELLO!

samwitwershirtlessb

(Sorry, does that tattoo say “Cilantro”? Boy must really love guacamole!)

3. Jensen Ackles (Supernatural)

destiel

Jensen Ackles is a very handsome man. But he’s infinitely more attractive thanks to his ongoing relationship with the brooding angel Castiel (Misha Collins). Ah, Destiel – will no homoerotic stone be left unturned?

deanglance

deanlick

deanleave

deanblow

Nope!

2. Ryan Kwanten (True Blood)

jasontied

Ryan, sit still until we’re done talking about you in your role as Southern-fried horndog Jason Stackhouse, please.

jasonerickisscu

Okay, that will be quite enough of that – we’re being serious here.

jasonerickissb

Okay, that was a nice try, but no – stay still.

jasoncuffed

There – that wasn’t so hard, now was it?

1. Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead)

daryldead

We think you may be, Daryl. And as for the rumors about the other thing on The Walking Dead that you may be the only one of?

Darylwalkingdeadnod

Well, that’ll be our little secret.

darylsssh

Who’d we miss miss and how would you rank them? Sound off in the comments.

Writer-filmmaker Brian Juergens launched CampBlood.org, the world's first website devoted to horror films from a gay perspective, in 2003.
