People magazine recently published its 2007 Sexiest Men Alive edition, so I decided to spotlight some of the ones that have Sci-Fi/Fantasy roots.
-Ryan Reynolds: He's had guest appearances on The Outer Limits, The X-Files and Sabrina, The Teenage Witch. But we best remember his sarcastic charm and rock hard body in Blade: Trinity. Here's to hoping he sinks his teeth into another juicy SF role.
-Brad Pitt: Who can forget Pitt's portrayal of Louis de Pointe du Lacthe in Interview With The Vampire? And back then, before Brangelina, his kiss with a young Kirsten Dunst was the talk of the town.
-James McAvoy: He brought to life C.S. Lewis' beloved Mr. Tummus, the faun, in the film adaptation of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. So that makes him our favorite mythological stud.
-Johnny Depp: He's been Ichabod Crane, Edward Scissorhands, Captain Jack Sparrow and Willy Wonka. What's not to enjoy about Depp's quirky characters?
-Will Smith: How many times has Will Smith saved the world? I've lost count. He's the actor we turn to when our planet is in big trouble. Next up on the save the universe tour is I AM LEGEND.
-Shemar Moore: He was that hunky guy on the short-lived WB series Birds of Prey. And he's my personal favorite on the list.
-Ben Affleck: He's no Spiderman. But this Daredevil had enough charm to catch Jennifer Garner. And the only thing cooler than their onscreen chemistry is the soundtrack which gave us Evanescence's "Bring Me To Life".
-Will Yun Lee: This season Lee's doing best to make The Bionic Woman live long enough to get picked up next year but he's no stranger to SF/Fantasy. Earlier this year he was a kick-butt angel in the ABC Family mini-series Fallen. And you if actually saw Elektra, then you're remember him from that. He's a good actor, I just hope he gets better SF roles.
