My Top 20 Favorite Guys of 2010 (in alphabetical order): 20 | Zachary Levi
Best Known For: Playing Chuck Bartowski on Chuck, playing Flynn Ryder in Tangled, and making me squee basically by his existence
I have yet to see the entire first season of Chuck, but I quite literally just finished the fourth episode. I haven’t had the opportunity to see Tangled, but it’s also on my list. I fell in love with Zachary Levi through the Comcast commercials, following him on Twitter, and watching him on various talk shows. And why I didn’t allow this man into my life earlier, I will never know, and I will never forgive myself. But he’s so adorable! Chuck Bartowski is quickly becoming one of my favorite TV characters ever, and Zachary Levi is becoming one of my favorite guys. It’s tough not to fall in love with him once you find out he exists.
My Top 20 Favorite Guys of 2010 (in alphabetical order): 19 | Will Forte
Best Known For: Being a cast member on SNL, playing MacGruber in MacGruber, being hilarious and awkward and awesome all at the same time
Will Forte’s presence is sorely missed on SNL this season, but thank goodness he gave us MacGruber in feature film version! I’m loving him on 30 Rock, as Jenna’s boyfriend/Jenna’s impersonator. One of my favorite things about Will Forte? His Weekend Update songs. The “Bailout Vote Song” and “I love the BCS” are some of my all time favorite Weekend Update moments. Will Forte was the greatest at playing the creepy guy on SNL. And while I definitely feel the void on Saturdays, I’m loving seeing him on other days.
My Top 20 Favorite Guys of 2010 (in alphabetical order): 18 | Seth Meyers
Best Known For: Being the Head Writer and Weekend Update anchor on Saturday Night Live, being the only news anchor who says exactly what each and every one of us really thinks
SNL has its ups and its downs, but we can always count on Seth Meyers to at the very least give us a great Weekend Update. How he manages to keep it together with guests like Snooki and Stefon and Garth & Kat… I will never know. And the one-liners! The Lady Gagas of the sea and the country boys with the big packages are just two from the past couple of years I’ll never forget. Thank you, Seth Meyers, for being the best news anchor on TV.
My Top 20 Favorite Guys of 2010 (in alphabetical order): 17 | Sean Murray
Best Known For: Playing Special Agent Tim McGee on NCIS, being all kinds of adorable and geeky and amazing
Sean Murray is adorable. Face it, he’s just too stinking cute and you know you want to hug him. McGee is one of the sweetest geeks on TV, and the smartest too. When Sean got a twitter account, you can bet that I was following that in ten seconds. Basically, Sean just needs to be my best friend so I can tell him how adorable he is every day.
My Top 20 Favorite Guys of 2010 (in alphabetical order): 16 | Rainn Wilson
Best Known For: Playing Dwight Schrute on The Office, being the founder of SoulPancake, being the reason many of us caved and got a Twitter account
Rainn Wilson is awesome. No one can tell me otherwise. He’s hilarious as Dwight on The Office, his character in Juno introduced the phrase “This is one doodle that can’t be undid, homeskillet” to my vocabulary, and he is the sole reason I got a twitter account. To follow him. I took a Philosophy class because of his SoulPancake book, and I love seeing him on late night shows explaining his love for thinking beyond the everyday. He’s hilarious, creative, and talented, therefore, he earns a spot on my list.
My Top 20 Favorite Guys of 2010 (in alphabetical order): 15 | Paul Rudd
Best Known For: Playing Phoebe’s husband Mike on Friends, being in almost every awesomely hilarious movie in the past 6 or 7 years, and being adorable while doing so
If you tell me that Paul Rudd isn’t all kinds of adorable I’ll wonder which Paul Rudd you’re talking about. Because it’s most certainly not this one. I was really sick for about a week this year and I watched I Love You, Man about ten times during my illness. It cheered me up so fast. And Mike is pretty much the only Friends significant other outside of the original six that I liked. So, there’s that. And watching him on SNL is always a blast. So, clearly, he needed to make my list.
My Top 20 Favorite Guys of 2010 (in alphabetical order): 14 | Neil Patrick Harris
Best Known For: Playing Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother, Doogie on Doogie Howser, MD, and being the best villain-with-a-heart-of-gold of all time
Neil Patrick Harris is legen-wait for it… DARY. I love NPH so much. He’s funny, adorable, and all around AWESOME. Dr. Horrible was what I ended up watching randomly when I felt bored/sad/happy/in the mood for anything fun. His voice is perfection. He looks damn good in a suit. And Barney Stinson is completely awesome, too.
My Top 20 Favorite Guys of 2010 (in alphabetical order): 13 | Michael Weatherly
Best Known For: Playing (Very) Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo on NCIS, Logan on Dark Angel, and being the funniest, flirtiest co-worker of all time
So, yeah, Michael Weatherly is all kinds of gorgeous. But I don’t need to tell you that. Have you listened to his commentary on the NCIS DVDs? They are works of art, pure gold. He’s so funny. Everything he says makes me want to tacklehug him. He’s not afraid to be goofy, and that’s what I love about him. He seems so normal and down to earth and I’d just love to listen to him tell me all sorts of hilarious anecdotes. Who wouldn’t, really?
My Top 20 Favorite Guys of 2010 (in alphabetical order): 12 | Mark Harmon
Best Known For: Playing Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs on NCIS, being the most handsome silver fox on the face of the planet
Peter Griffin was right. Mark Harmon *is* cool. He’s one of my favorite celebrities, ever. Not only is he the most badass special agent on TV right now, he has the most distinguished hair. Ever. If you get the chance, treat yourself to a Netflix party and watch Season 12 of SNL online. Watch Mark Harmon host. And you’ll die of laughter. Also, the way the cast members of NCIS talk about him just warms my heart. Oh, and he’s in a ton of my guilty pleasure movies, including Chasing Liberty with Mandy Moore. Mark Harmon brings out the shameless fangirl in me. What of it?
My Top 20 Favorite Guys of 2010 (in alphabetical order): 11 | Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Best Known For: Playing tom Hansen in (500) Days of Summer, Arthur in Inception, and singing Lady Gaga songs better than she can
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a guy I’ve adored for ages. But when (500) Days of Summer came out I was hooked more than usual. How adorable is he? Plus, the man can sing. Look up the video of him singing “Bad Romance” on YouTube. Amazing. I’ll watch Inception ten more times, and then fifty more after that, for JGL. He’s talented, good looking, and multi-facted. What more can I ask for?
