Summer Just Got Hotter Thanks to These TV Actors

From zombie hunters to suited-up lawyers, there are some fine fellas steaming up the small screen.

By Jocelyn Vena

We are currently living in a golden age of very attractive men flocking to TV. From basic cable to streaming services, there is no shortage of eye candy to binge on. And as the summer temps rise, the hotness of the guys on the small screen does as well. (This is a type of heat we are not complaining about what so ever.)

So if you're looking to have a little summer fling with some of Hollywood's hottest hunks, here's a shortlist of contenders worthy of your gaze. Is it hot in here, or is it just the guys below?

1. James Norton

Stars on: Happy Valley (Netflix, Currently Streaming), Grantchester (PBS, Season 3 TBD)

Excuse us while we go swoon.

2. Jeffrey Dean Morgan


Stars on: The Good Wife (Streaming in our hearts forever),The Walking Dead (AMC, Season 7 TBD)

Did he end up with Alicia Florrick on The Good Wife? Who did he kill on The Walking Dead? Honestly it doesn't really matter, as long as he keeps showing up and making our knees weak. 

3. Matthew Goode and Matthew Rhys

Stars on: Downton Abbey (Streaming in our hearts forever), The Americans (FX, Season 4 currently airing), The Wine Show (streaming here)

Two guys, one show, lots of wine. Count us in. 

4. Nick Jonas

Stars on: Kingdom (Audience Network, Season 3 currently airing)

Need we say more?

5. Josh Hartnett

Stars on: Penny Dreadful (Showtime, Season 3 currently airing)

Stone. Cold. Fox. 

6. Taye Diggs

Stars on: Murder in the First (TNT, June 19)

That smile simply makes our hearts melt.

7. Kit Harrington

Stars on: Game of Thrones (HBO, Season 6 currently airing)

Let's just say he had the sexiest resurrection in TV history. Because shirtless

8. B.J. Britt

Stars on: UnReal (Lifetime, June 6)

Ladies, meet the (unreal) bachelor of your dreams.

9. Patrick J. Adams and Gabriel Macht

Stars on: Suits (USA, July 13)

We'd definitely get in trouble with the law just to spend more a little more time with these TV lawyers.

10. Brett Tucker

Stars on: Mistresses (ABC, Season 4 currently airing)

He has an Australian accent and can cook? Is there anything this stud (or, at least his small-screen persona) isn't bringing to the table?

11. Norman Reedus

Stars on: The Walking Dead (AMC, Season 7 TBD), Ride With Norman Reedus (AMC, June 12)

Norman has traded in his crossbow for a motorcycle (temporarily) on his new series, and, believe us, we would not complain if he offered us a ride.

12. Scott Speedman


Stars on: Animal Kingdom (TNT, June 14)

Team Ben Covington for life.

13. Dominic Cooper

Stars on: Preacher (AMC, Season 1 currently airing)


14. Andy Buckley and Sean Kleier

Stars on: Odd Mom Out (Bravo, June 20)

Two hot dads for the price of one show.

15. Ryan Phillipe

Stars on: Shooter (USA, July 19)

Forever and always.

Just one final thought:

Happy summer, y'all!
