TheTVObserver: Top 40 Hot TV Hunks "1-10"


TheTVObserver presents The Top40 Hot TV Hunks List, in no particular order. The criteria for the list was very simple; "only TV actors", "the actor must be hot", and "the actor must be responsible for a couple of viewer fantasies".

Please note that this list is in no particular order and the actors being listed as number 1 to 40, does not mean anything, however being included in the list is more important to us. The only list where the numbers count is our "Top Ten Ultimate TV Hunk", which will be published after we reveal the entire Top 40.

We kick off TheTVObserver’s Top40 Hot TV Hunks List with:

#1 Patrick Dempsey
Patrick Dempsey is an actor, known for his role as neurosurgeon Dr. Derek Shepherd on the medical drama Grey's Anatomy. His first major television role was a recurring role as Will's closeted sportscaster boyfriend on Will & Grace. The most memorable appearance by Patrick was when he appeared as special guest star in The Practice for 3 episodes finale season, as a married man who murdered his lover. That was cool.

#2 Gale Harold
Gale Morgan Harold III best known for his roles on Queer as Folk, Desperate Housewives and Vanished. Harold joined the cast of Desperate Housewives on May 18, 2008 as Jackson Braddock, Susan Mayer's latest love interest.

#3 George Stults
George Sheehy Stults is former male fashion model. He become popular on our TV observations for his role as Kevin Kinkirk on the long-running television show, 7th Heaven. George made a guest appearance on a season 7 episode of Friends, The One With Joey's New Brain as Jessica Lockhart's daughter's boyfriend. He previously had appeared in Everybody Loves Raymond for a much less conspicuous appearance.

#4 Enrique Murciano
Enrique Murciano is best known for playing Special Agent Danny Taylor in the CBS drama Without a Trace. He was also cast as the eye candy on the short-lived MTV soap opera "Spyder Games" as Francisco Torres.Foreman.

#5 Ian Somerhalder
Ian Somerhalder is an actor, male fashion model and producer, probably most notable for playing Boone Carlyle in the TV drama Lost. He has appeared in Smallville (played Adam Knight, a dead person who is being kept alive by a special drug), CSI: Miami, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Now and Again, and The Big Easy.

#6 Scott Speedman
Scott Speedman is a UK-born Canadian film and television actor. He is best known for playing Ben Covington in the coming-of-age television drama Felicity. He is in our records Mr. Felicity. He now does movies mostly and I have to admit that it would be nice to see him as a regular on television.

#7 Rob Lowe
Robert Lowe is known for his role as Sam Seaborn on The West Wing and as Senator Robert McCallister on Brothers & Sisters. After Dr. Vegas, and The Lyon's Den. We never thought I much loved "never-getting old" TV hunk will ever be seen on TV especially after he passed on the role of Dr. Derek Shepard of Grey's Anatomy, which eventually went to Patrick Dempsey. But we love observing him on ABC's Brothers & Sisters.

#8 Bradley Cooper
Bradley Cooper is a film, stage, and television actor. He's best known in our books for his lead role in the Fox sitcom Kitchen Confidential, based on a memoir by chef Anthony Bourdain, on Kitchen Confidential. He began his professional acting career on the television series Sex and the City. He returned twice to Alias as a guest star after leaving the show in 2003, and he also guest-starred on the short-lived TV series Miss Match. He appeared as a regular guest star in the WB series Jack & Bobby. Cooper starred in Season 5 of Nip/Tuck as Aidan Stone. My favorite quote, okay I have a lot, from Kitchen Confidential....
a)
Steven Daedelus: Look at this veal! This veal is gorgeous! If I were another veal, I'd be making love to this veal!
Jack Bourdain: Tell me you didn't put the veal down your pants.
Steven Daedelus: So what if I did?

...and these guys were Chefs. Gives you nightmares doesn't it? Did you order veal, today? lol

b)
Steven Daedelus: "Jiminy?" Should I haze him to the point of tears or beyond?
Jack Bourdain: Surprise me.

Enough...more with that on our series OnTheProgram meets Memorable Moments.

#9 Milo Ventimiglia
Milo Ventimiglia is best known for his role of Peter Petrelli on the TV series Heroes, but we know this little trouble maker turned super hero as Rory Gilmore's boyfriend Jess Mariano. He also appreared as Meg Pryor's love interest on NBC's critically acclaimed American Dreams. Mile also guest starred on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and Boston Public.

#10 Matthew Fox
Matthew Fox is a former model and actor. His first major role was playing an older brother and patriarch Charlie Salinger on Party of Five. Ah! Party of Five, that is memorable moment right there. More recently, he gained much greater fame for playing Jack Shephard on the hit ABC drama series Lost.

Gale Harold, without any doubt

Anonymous said...

I never cared for any celebrity enough to follow their career or even comment on an Internet site about them. But I don't know what Gale Harold has that makes me want all the best for him and wish I could see him on my TV every day. His charisma is just out of this world.

bksbracelet said...

Gale Harold is my number 1 pick. I have seen him in several quite varied roles and he can play dark and menacing as well as a lovable dork. I cannot identify the one thing that makes this actor pop for me but I hope he continues to act for a good while yet.

Anonymous said...

Gale Harold is my one and only pick.

Anonymous said...

Gale is not only beautiful, he acts with his soul. This may not be as apparent in DH as it was in Queer as Folk. It doesn't matter. The work he done in QAF was beyond anything I've seen on TV or film. The vulnerable tough in your face ad exec losing his heart despite his best efforts. A lot of his scenes were breathtaking, in happiness and sadness.

The one and only - Gale Harold.

Terry said...

Gale Harold is an amazing talent and very pleasing to look at. He's added heat to Desperate Housewives and is the only reason I tune into that show. Gale will always be my number one.

EchoZ said...

Gale Harold should definitely be on the top of your top 10 list!

Marysya said...

I am here to say - definitely Gale Harold. This photo isn`t the best though. He looks better in both QaF and even DH. Gale Harold rocks, and would you please change the photo:)

wake_upsunshine23 said...

Gale Harold, of course :)

furriboots said...

The one and only Gale Harold! There isn't another actor that I would post to a blog about. He has an indescribable quality that makes his performances memorable.

Anonymous said...

My #1 pick without a doubt...
Gale Harold!!!

TheTVObserver said...

Thank you so much for your contribution and we have enjoyed reading all your comments and we are overwhelmed at the support that Gale Harold has received from all of you. Its not surprising since the actor is very talented. Thank you

TheTVObserver said...

@Anonymous 2 and bksbracelet - yes he does have something about him which draws people in. It's quite interesting. I guess that's why we had such fun featuring him on StarSpread. Thank you for your comment

@ Terri - We agree

@ EchoZ - The only list where the numbers count is our "Top Ten Ultimate TV Hunk", which will be published after we reveal the entire Top 40. Let hope Gale is on that list ....Wink Wink lol

@furriboots - Thank you. I agree as well. After the countless times we have researched and watched almost everything he's appeared in. I agree he is a Star.

Thank you once again for your comments.

TheTVObserver said...

@ Marysya - As you may know if you follow our blog. We only focus on the best. We have already featured Gale on three posts here on TheTVObserver and one of the things we hate to do, is to re-use pictures. In all the pictures we had, the one included in this list was the only good one where he is looking at the camera. Also as a fan of the actor you should be aware that he does not have a lot of photo-shoots under his belt, and the publicity photos we saw did not qualify for the list. If you have other HQ pictures of the star, please feel free to recommend them to us for use in the future. Thank you for your comment.

From 17 to 70, Gale fulfills every woman's fantasy, and a few boy's as well. I'm wondering if cats and dogs are also affected.

Hes gorgeous & more importantly, hes a great actor.

I just hope we get to see lots more of him, I've missed him,,thanks for this,,Jackie.

Jackie said...

Sorry guys, I clicked the wrong button before :)

Me anonymous, I don't think so, I left my name.

We were talking about Gale though, so I'm forgiven!!

TheTVObserver said...

@ Jackie, we were thinking why Anon and sign your name?...LOL But it's all good. We are agree 100% with what you have said/typed.

Gale Harold is definitely the best... he's an amazing actor and a gorgeous man!

GALE HAROLD, of course <3

gale harold of course. have you seen the man act? and that face and body. there should to be a law against looking that good.

WhiteSockGirl said...

Sorry TVObserver, your top 10 is not hot, not in my Fab Bitch opinion. Your criteria for hot,... I don't get it!

Your number 1 would be my number 53 or something. Highly overrated and lack some serious steam...

And I am not getting the Gale Harold thing,... And Rob Lowe? Not in this Fab Bitch's universe!

I am missing my dark chocolate! I took issue with Cosmopolitan for their lack of Dark Chocolate,... and now I am equally disappointed with your list.

Boris Kodjoe, Taye Diggs, Blair Underwood,... Not in the top 10???

And where is Jonathan Rhys-Meyers? The gang from Prison Break?

We are talking about HOT,... abs, steel hard behinds, sculpted bodies,..

Sorry, TVObserver,.. I am not find your top 10 hot.

Anonymous said...

Gale Harold, without a doubt.

TheTVObserver said...

WSG....not everyone lives in that dark head of yours. And before you get all dramatic on us.

This post stated VERY clearly that "TheTVObserver presents The Top40 Hot TV Hunks List, in no particular order."

NOT - "TheTVObserver presents The World Opinion of Who is HOT and NOT on TV!"

Your taste is yours. Hence this is TheTVObserver's Top40.

"Not in the top 10???" This is a clear example that you did not read...... or if you did, you failed to understand

Here is reminder.....

Please note that this list is in no particular order and the actors being listed as number 1 to 40, does not mean anything, however being included in the list is more important to "us" (----not WSG). The only list where the numbers count is our "Top Ten Ultimate TV Hunk", which will be published after we reveal the entire Top 40.

Also, not everyone is happy with lists. Thus, we always focus on what we (TheTVObserver) have observed and liked. The internet universe has a lot of lists and I am sure you can find one that makes you happy.

PS: There is more to TV Stars than "abs, steel hard behinds, sculpted bodies," And if am not mistaken that was not our criteria. Maybe you can use that as your criteria for your list.

WhiteSockGirl said...

Top 40,... that is what your list is saying,.. and yes, you mentioned in your article that it is not the top 10, but your numbered them 1 to 10. So, for me it is your top 10.

And I am just saying, I don't find them HOT.

Fiy, everyone I mentioned, is on TV.

Obviously, taste is subjective.

WhiteSockGirl said...

Oh, I forgot,... sculpted bodies, HOT!!! Short and flab, NOT HOT. Anyway, that is what this Cosmopolitan Loving Fabulous Bitch, and any other fabulous Cosmo girl, would tell you.
Finding a man's brain attractive? That is just geek talk.. And that is not HOT.

TheTVObserver said...

White, lets have this debate after we publish the fourth edition. (The entire Top 40)

And maybe we can debate with more vigor and passion, when we finally publish the Real Top Ten (The Ultimate Top Ten)...not your Top Ten..lol

Fiy, everyone I mentioned, is on TV....LOL Boris was hot on Showtime Network's Soul Food.

As for Jonathan Rhys-Meyers....no comment.

Gale Harold should have a show of his own, then all his acting abilities could shine. DH is a great show and Gale does a great job in the limited time he has, but my oh my what the viewers are missing.

Anonymous said...

Add me to the Gale Harold chorus. I sympathize with the photo problem, because I gather that he's just as averse to photo shoots as he is to interviews. It's maddening to his fans that he doesn't do more to court publicity (I don't think he'd do any interviews at all, but when he's signed to a show, they obviously force him) but it's also part of what we respect about him. He's his own man, marches to his own drummer, doesn't like to play the game. He has integrity, and his co-workers have attested to that over and over. Maybe it empowers his fans to know that it's up to us to spread the good word. It seems to be the attitude of a lot of journalists too (like Nikki Finke and Mandi Bierley) who do their best to boost him (he has his enemies too, like, for some reason, Michael Ausiello). Anyway, I've rarely seen an actor have this devoted, international, and sophisticated a fanbase. There are big movie stars without the fansites or chatter he gets. The passion is akin to the passion teen idols get, except nobody publishes online essays about Zac Efron's Dyonysian persona, or the mystery and multi-layered quality of Channing Tatum's acting. TV really needs to find him a role that exploits his depth as an actor in addition to his sex appeal. There are very few men as expressive as he is when the part is complex. It's like that scene in "Spellbound" where the doors keep opening in an endless vista. Thanks for featuring this unique actor.

bkrave said...

Gale Harold has it all brains,body,nice guy,funny, he is a great actor and he is hotter then hell and has evoked quite a few fantasies for me.

TheTVObserver said...

@ Anonymous #14. You do have a way with words. Its a pity you are Anon. It would be cool for us to know who made such awesome comment.

We think Gale's nature to keep to himself is perhaps his best quality and makes for great intrigue and continued excitement from his fans both male and female.

We also agree that a role which will showcase his range as an actor is critically in need, so the world could see what the fuss is all about. But am sure DH is giving them a good preview.

Anonymous said...

No contest, Gale Harold...the best looking man on TV without any doubt.

chaotic-boom said...

Gale Harold is beautiful and definitely has my vote, but... I have to be totally honest, and shockingly divergent from the rest of the commenters, and say I also love Scott Speedman.

Anonymous said...

It was striking, by the way, how touching the press (not just the public) was after Gale Harold's accident (and has continued to be, for that matter). People I don't necessarily consider all that warm and fuzzy, like Ted Casablanca and Perez Hilton, have been touchingly solicitous. There's alway been a lot of woo woo about him in the entertainment press (and that's not surprising) but the personal wishes (and Casablanca did say he's a really good guy) were striking.

Colleen said...

SO happy to see the unique Gale Harold "je ne sais quoi" back on my TV and on display here. Hoping to see more of him soon in yet another complex role that lets his gifts shine.

Anonymous said...

For the pretty: Sommerhalder and Lowe. Oh and Dempsey too.

But for the all-around HOT!? Unquestionably Gale Harold. He's got that je ne sais quoi, the it factor, the magnetism, whatever you want to call it that makes him one of the most attractive and entrancing men on screen.

Anonymous said...

If you want hot photos of Gale Harold, look up the Tony Duran pictures done for "Flaunt" magazine. Not only are they hot, they are nuclear! Available on a number of sites on the web.

Anonymous said...

Without a doubt, Gale Harold is the hottest thing to hit our television screens in a very long time. From QAF to Vanished, to Deadwood, to Grey's Anatomy, and now to DH, he has been heating up our screens for a long time. He's my top pick for sure.

1. Gale Harold 2. Gale Harold

Get the idea? :)

Tami said...

Gale Harold, of course!

Smart, talented, and gorgeous! A triple threat!

Gale Harold, is by far, the most beautiful man on your list. He is an amazing actor who has the ability to captivate you regardless of the role he is playing.

ragejt said...

Gale Harold without a doubt. The man is so hot and such a great actor. There is something unique about him that draws you in. I love watching in act, he can pull off such a wide verity of roles seemingly effortlessly and he's so cute in interviews.

Gale Harold, without a doubt! I'd watch even the crappiest TV show/movie provided he's in it. You sexy, sexy man! :P

I'd really love to see more of him. I hate 'Desperate Housewives', but for him? I watch it.

Gale Harold all the way. <3

Gale Harold... just perfect.

Anonymous said...

I'd have to say Bradley Cooper is my favourite on this list, I'd love to see him on screen more often. Gale Harold is a very close second though.

Misty said...

My vote has to go to Gale Harold. Although I know we are all happy to see him on Desperate Housewives we know that he is so much better then what the writing on the show allows for him. Just take a look at him in "The Unseen" or "Wake" and you'll see a depth to him that is simply remarkable. It was also wonderful to see all the concern he was given in the press after his accident and seeing him recovered and back to work again is a joy. He's an amazingly talented actor and so underrated. He deserves a lead role, one that gives him the freedom to perform and shine the way we know he can.

TheTVObserver said...

@ Anonymous 28 - We still cannot understand why Kitchen Confidential was canned. He was brilliant and very funny on that show. Thanks for your comment.

@ Misty. He really needs a leading role. Possibly a show that will showcase all the colors of his talent...lol. No really a show and character which will allow him to just shine. Thank you for your comment.

TheTVObserver said...

A special thank you to all of you for leaving comments. Join us again for the second edition of our Top40 Hot TV Hunks.....it should be interesting. Wink WInk! lol
