2012 Sci-Fi Manfest

Every year I see tons of “sexy women of sci-fi” lists. I never see any for the men. I’ve come to the rescue with a list of the sexiest men in science fiction this year.

I’ve been googling pictures of shirtless men for hours and you reap the benefits of my labor. You’re welcome.

The fourth annual Sci-Fi ManFest


There are 3 honorable mentions this year. These guys aren’t in anything science fiction per se but their gloriousness could not go unnoticed or unmentioned.

Honorable Mention #3 — Ed Quinn – Guest star on Castle:

Whoever decided to cast him on Castle deserves a raise!

Honorable Mention #2 — Scott Speedman – Last Resort:

Just when he got the stench of Felicity and Underworld off of him they cancel Last Resort! Bastards!

Honorable Mention #1 — Shemar Moore – Criminal Minds:

Because you never really need a valid reason to include Shemar Moore on a list of shirtless men.

13) Tom Hardy – The Dark Knight Rises

When did he get so buff? I totally thought they had a stand-in for Bane on The Dark Knight Rises. I had no idea this was his actual bod. He’s come a long way from lanky Shinzon!

12) Benjamin Walker – Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter:

The sexiest Abraham Lincoln of the year by far!

11) Götz Otto – Iron Sky:

This guy is funny and sexy in spite of his evil Nazi performance. You have to have talent to pull that off.

10) Richard Armitage – The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey:

I knew there was a hot guy under that Dwarf!

6) Daniel Craig – Skyfall:

I haven’t even seen Skyfall yet and I’m like “Damn!”. Part of Daniel Craig’s appeal is how good that man looks in a suit!

5) Christopher Meloni – True Blood:

Chris was so impressive on True Blood that I had to watch all 14 seasons of Law & Order: SVU!

2) Joe Manganiello – True Blood and Magic Mike:

When a man has been cast as a character named Big D*ck Richie, there’s not much else to add. #TeamWolf

1) Stephen Amell – Arrow:

This has to be the hardest working man in show biz this year. He came pre-packaged with his shirt off and abs flexed in the initial campaign for his new show. I think he has his shirt off in EVERY episode. He is a believable character, has the right amount of honor, style, and charm. I was a bit angry and skeptical on them choosing Stephen Amell over Justin Hartley from Smallville but I’m absolutely over it now!
