Oh how I’ve agonised over picking someone to present for your consideration in Pajiba 10. My celebrity crushes tend to fall into categories: long standing devotion (hello, David Boreanaz), shameless lechery (hey, Alexander Skarsgård) or embarrassing wrong’uns (I’ll never tell)…
The world’s got enough Bad Boys, and legions of groupies to sing their praises, so I’ve been focusing my efforts on damn fine specimens of Good Guys. What I’m aiming for is the noble and glorious Guilt-Free Perv. No shame, no embarrassment, no ‘ignore everything you know about his personal life and focus on the pretty’. No ‘is it still OK to like him even though….’ Nope. Beautiful and lovely, inside and out, that’s what I’m going for.
This brings me to the chaps in Supernatural. The only embarrassment here is the embarrassment of richness in the hot guy department. What’s the collective noun for hot guys? Let’s go with sploosh (thanks Jodi!). That’s what this show has: a sploosh of hotties. Plus a sexy car and some classic rock.
You could dedicate much of your list to the lovelies of Supernatural. Hello, boys. We could argue Jared vs Jensen vs J2 for hours; there are Bad Boys aplenty with Mark Sheppard’s Crowley (that growly voice? Hello.) and Mark Pellegrino’s mischievous Lucifer as notable mentions. Even Battlestar Galactica’s Tahmoh Penikett made an appearance. But on this auspicious occasion, I’m championing the guy who brought us Castiel, aka your new God, aka Agent Beyoncé: Misha Collins.
Misha has it all. First up, he’s gorgeous.
He can do smouldering and mysterious. He can do goofy and silly. He can put on a deep gravelly voice for the best part of a decade, just for us. His smile is like sunshine.
You don’t get to see him smile very often, as Castiel usually has to look awkward and confused, but damn, he does that well, too.
But he’s also the epitome of a Good Guy. Take a look at GISHWHES, Random Acts of Kindness and his social media feed! He’s fighting the good fight there as well.
He’s super cute with his wife and kids! He likes Wonder Woman!
Misha has it all, folks. Not only is he entirely sploosh-worthy, but you could take him home to your parents, and he’d charm the socks off them. He can save the world in a trenchcoat. He’ll make you laugh and give you a cuddle. He’s the ultimate Guilt-Free Perv. You’re welcome.
