Crushworthy Men of TV


Mark Brendanawicz (Paul Schneider).
From: Parks and Recreation (2009-).
Find it in the catalog!
Mark isn't the most interesting character on the show, but he's the dreamiest.  He's got a good job (city planner) and he's played by one of the handsomest (in my opinion) actors around.

10). Henry Pollard (Adam Scott).
From: Party Down (2009-2010).
Find it in the catalog!  
Seasons: One and Two.

Henry is mid-thirties, works as a caterer and occasionally toys with the idea of moving back in with his parents.  Yeah, doesn't say much for my taste in men, does it?  Or maybe it just speaks to the power of his witty banter on the show.

9).   Mark McKinney, various characters.
From: Kids in the Hall (1988-1995).
Find it in the catalog!
Seasons: One, Two, Three, Four, and Five.

Just being a part of the hilarious Canadian comedy troupe is enough to make you crush-able in my book.  But McKinney is the only one who doesn't look better as a woman. 

8). Nick Andopolis (Jason Segel).
From: Freaks and Geeks (1999-2000). 
Find it in the catalog!

Tall and friendly, Nick is probably the kindest of the freaks.  I thought he was super cute up until the point he started to smother Lindsay with affection. 

7).  Eric Gotts (Tyron Leitso).
From: Wonderfalls (2004).   

Sweet, charming, and oh-so-cute, Eric is every girl's dream bartender.

6). Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård).
From: True Blood (2008-).  
Find it in the catalog!
Seasons: One, Two.

Eric is pretty much the tall, Swedish vampire version of Logan from Veronica Mars.  And what's not to like about that? 

5).Joe (Justin Theroux).
From: Six Feet Under (2001-2005).
Find it in the catalog!
Seasons: One, Two, Three, Four, Five.
(Note: Joe is only is seasons 3 and 4, but you should watch them all).

Joe is pretty much the perfect guy.  He is witty, smart, a musician, and he asks girls out for Korean barbecue.  A huge added bonus is that he looks just like Justin Theroux.  It's hard to understand why Brenda still has a thing for sulky, self-centered Nate, when Joe is a much better option.

4).Ron Garner (Seth Rogen). 
From: Undeclared (2001-2002).  Find it in the catalog!

Like Paul Schneider, I think Rogen is pretty cute in almost every role he plays.  He has a ton of charm.  But Ron is definitely the most dateable of the guys on the show.  Lloyd (Charlie Hunman) is British and gorgeous, but a total ladies man.  Steven (Jay Baruchel) is adorable, but too neurotic.  And Eric (Jason Segel) is pretty much just a loser, but also the funniest character on the show. 

3). Tim Riggins (Tyler Kitsch).
From: Friday Night Lights (2006-). 
Find it in the catalog!
Seasons: One, Two, and Three.

In real life, I'd probably be crushing on the nerdy and sweet Landry Clarke over a seemingly self-absorbed jock like Riggins.  And Riggins is terrible boyfriend material.  He does pretty much whatever he wants, whenever he wants and he's drunk more often than not.  But when the situation calls for it,  Riggins is an honorable guy.  And he looks like Johnny Depp's hunkier younger brother.


2). Tie:  
Jim Halpert (John Krasinski).
From: The Office (2005-). 
Find it in the catalog!
Seasons: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, and Six.

Tim Canterbury (Martin Freeman).
From: The Office (2001-2003).  
Find it in the catalog!
Seasons: One, Two, and Christmas Special.

Jim and Tim are the same characters, but on different iterations of the Office.  Jim is definitely the handsomer of the two, Tim is a little bit sweeter and not as sharply ironic as Jim, so it's a tie. 

1). Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring).
From: Veronica Mars (2004-2007). 
Find it in the catalog!
Seasons: One, Two, Three.

Like Tim Riggins, Logan seems like one of the guys you hated in high school.  He's a bully, but also popular, possibly because everyone is too afraid of his wrath to stand up to him.  But underneath his prickly exterior, he is actually a really loyal and sweet guy.  Just when you think he's done something total unforgivable, he wins you over by saying or doing exactly the right thing.
