When you find a movie or TV show you love, chances are it's not just the riveting storyline that keeps you coming back. More often than not, it's a very specific male character you can't stop fantasizing about that makes you tune in, whether it's due to their smoldering personalities, killer chemistry with another character, or the fact that they're just really, really nice to look at.
With that in mind, our editors put their heads together and rounded up 50 fictional characters we'd totally do. From the sweet and sensitive to the slightly scary (but still sexy), our list is filled with a few fairly predictable choices (Don Draper, Jordan Catalano, and anyone Ryan Gosling's ever played), those a bit less conventional (Will McEvoy from The Newsroom, Derek Wills from Smash) and a few total surprises (Rio from Gem and the Holograms, Randy from Valley Girl.)
So, scroll through the gallery of the 50 sexiest fictional male characters (in no particular order) and let us know — which one(s) would you totally do, and who did we forget?
Don Draper, Mad Men
What makes Don Draper so appealing is that he's a man's man. He sees something he wants, and he takes it. Plus, he's so good looking it makes us overlook all of his bad flaws, like possible alcoholism and constant philandering.
Eric Northman, True Blood
We would gladly trade our mortality for the chance to have Eric suck on our neck. We might have even shrieked with glee when we finally got a peek at his goods in the recent season finale, even though they were on fire at the time.
Will McAvoy, The Newsroom
Not only is the HBO character totally brilliant, but he's razor-sharp, sarcastic, reckless, and totally lovesick, which all makes for one really, really sexy character.
Tim Riggins, Friday Night Lights
He may be in high school, but there's nothing boyish about Tim Riggins. Between his long hair, ripped body and bad boy persona, we have a hard time focusing on anything else.
Pacey Witter, Dawson's Creek
It sort of makes us feel like pervs to lust after a high school student, but then again, we were underage, too, when we first fell in love with the wise-cracking Capeside resident. Dawson may have been Joey's soulmate, but Pacey held Joey's heart — and ours. And lucky for us, Pacey was into older women, like teacher Tamara Jacobs.
Mr. Big, Sex And The City
Mr. Big sort of represents every unhealthy relationship we've ever had. Yes he does some terrible things, but there's something about him that keeps us coming back for more.
John Luther, Luther
The Detective Chief Inspector is hot and catches bad guys. What else does one need to know? Oh, and then there's that whole sexy British accent thing...
