The lovely and talented Charlie Hunnam.

I chose Charlie Hunnam for the first piece of man candy to share with you all because, in my always humble opinion, they don’t get much more delicious than Charlie. I fell in love with him as Nathan Maloney on Queer As Folk and that love has only grown stronger as time has passed.

A few things I love about Charlie; he’s fearless, he’s gorgeous and he’s talented. This is a man who isn’t just a favorite of mine because he’s absolutely stunning, but because he genuinely has talent. He takes diverse roles in an effort to make sure he isn’t just thought of as the pretty blond boy but is recognized as a serious actor.

Charlie as Jax Teller.

My favorite Charlie Hunnam role to date is Jackson ‘Jax’ Teller on FX’s woefully underappreciated Sons of Anarchy, but choosing a favorite is no easy task. His performance as Pete in Green Street Hooligans was absolutely phenomenal. He has called his performances in Abandon, Cold Mountain and Children of Men his ‘trilogy of madmen’ and he played that trilogy to perfection.
