Hugh Dancy — Will Graham — Hannibal: Dancy is, of course, a very handsome man. But he’s handsome in a weedy British way and not in a punkish way at all. I’m sure this was a joke. It had to be.

Kunal Nayyar — Rajesh Koothrappali — Big Bang Theory

Martin Starr — Bill Haverchuck — Freaks And Geeks: Starr has grown up into a charmingly hirsute young man and the Brie accessory almost works here. Almost.

David Schwimmer — Ross Geller — Friends: Boo. Ross. No. Put it away.

Masi Oka — Hiro Nakamura — Heroes: Can I teleport to a time or place where I knew nothing about Oka’s thoughts on nipples? Please?

John Francis Daley — Sam Weir — Freaks And Geeks: I’d give it this to Daley if I didn’t know it was a selfie. Self-important selfies are never sexy, friend. That’s law.

Daniel Radcliffe — You Know Who — The Harry Potter Franchise

Lisa Simpson — The Simpsons: AHHHH MY EYEEESSSSSSSS. P.S. Friends, don’t google “Lisa Simpson sexy,” you’ll never recover. Never.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Kunal Nayyar is really doing it for me in that picture. I'll take a double-scoop please.

  • muscleman

    So, Harry Potter came out???
    God, where have I been?

  • There's a beloved nerd in Big Bang Theory? I failed to avoid it once on a flight and thought it was just awful TV.

  • loo shag brolley

    I don't fly because I'm afraid. It's not a fear of flying, it's a fear of being trapped in a large cylinder and forced to watch hours of Big Bang Theory.

  • IngridToday

    If girl likes her nipples played with, why would Hiro need to travel back in time to do that? What the hell question did the interviewer ask him that lead to that answer?

  • ViciousTrollop

    His character could travel back in time on Heroes.

  • Three_nineteen

    1. Daniel Radcliffe does not play You-Know-Who in the Harry Potter franchise. He plays Harry Potter. You-Know-Who is played by Ralph Fiennes.

    2. Martin Starr is sexy as hell.

  • JoannaRobinson

    Oh kid, give me some credit. I just didn't want to type Harry Potter twice. If I meant Voldemort I would have written He Who Shall Not Be Named.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    I can't think of any conceivable reason to google "Lisa Simpson sexy".

  • BendinIntheWind

    I'm more concerned that Lisa Simpson is now a double amputee...

  • That's the first thing that came to my mind as well.

  • Professor Sara

    That's word-for-word the thought that I had, too.

  • fracas

    I think the last suggestion is probably applicable to all cartoon characters. Maybe not Jessica Rabbit, but it's not her fault. She was drawn that way.

  • ipomoea

    John Francis Daley looks far too much like my little brother, so when friends express some sort of sexual attraction to him, I want to peel my skin off.

  • I have that issue with Radcliffe. Millions of little girls scamming on my little bro. Ew ew ew.

  • Ryan Ambrose

    Strangely I have the same problem with a cousin whose resemblance to Emmy Rossum is uncanny, we should form a support group.

  • ipomoea

    I can do you one better: my best friend used to pant after JFD, she is now three years into dating my little brother. Peel. My. Skin. Off.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I have this issue with Cumberbatch. It's super creepy, no?

  • BWeaves

    I'm hot for Cumberbatch when he's in motion, ripping off a scarf, but he looks like a lizard in still photos.

  • Jim

    You MUST define a term for that idea because it happens very often -- sort of like "He's a Monet." - Meaning he's fine looking a block away but up close yikes.

    How about "Calder" - art while in motion but sitting still it's so much misshapen metal, wire and paint? Maybe not. I dunno. You were on the money though.

  • BWeaves

    Well, there's always non-photogenic, but that's boring. The Germans are so good at this sort of word. We need something like Schadenfreude or Fremdschamen. How about Cumberbachen? Or nurBlickegutindengifs? Or schöninderAktion-ScheißeindenFotos ?

  • Jim

    I hereby vote for Cumberbachen or perhaps Japanese "minikui ta~tsu" (醜い立っ) - standing ugly

  • Sassy Pikachu

    Aside from the voice, perhaps that is the other reason Peter cast him as Smaug.

  • Luke Lane

    Ummmm....I'd say that Big Bang Theory guy looks pretty damn hot in that pic.

  • emmelemm

    Yeah, I don't really know from Big Bang Theory, but the guy in the picture is pretty hot...

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Just coming here to post that. The show isn't really my thing, but that guy is hot.

  • e jerry powell

    What is with all the "stay in your lane" SRL lately?

  • Maya

    Daniel Radcliffe IS sexy. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

  • I think he's sexy as himself, though. The leather vest does nothing for me.

  • All the leather vest does for me is make me hear the Village People sing "Macho Man" in my head.

  • BWeaves

    I'd rank Elijah Wood in there, too.

  • MrsAtaxxia


  • Mrs. Julien

    That Lisa Simpson shot reminds me of the movie Crumb and that the artist's brother was sexually attracted to Bugs Bunny when he dressed up as a woman. I didn't want to know that alone anymore.

    Never watch Crumb, if you want to refrain from misogyny overload.

  • googergieger

    In Crooked Little Vein I was introduced to a group of dudes and dudes with chicks who got off on watching Godzilla porn and capping it off with a bukake.

  • Natallica
  • Mrs. Julien

    I must have been stoned. Maybe it was just attracted to Bugs Bunny full stop? Can someone help me out? I am NOT watching the movie again to clarify.

  • fracas

    Watching the movie won't help (though it will be awesome). This was pretty much a non sequitur.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Canadians do love a non-sequitur and I'm Canadian, so I am ... entertained by my own idiocy and not humiliated?
