Look, Internet, it’s time we have an honest conversation about our shared desire to get it on with Homeland star Damian Lewis. Because I know it’s not just me and Carrie Mathison going crazy over the ginger, who plays Sargent Brody on Showtime’s jazzy, one-hour mind-f—. Onscreen, he’s a brooding and terrifyingly sociopathic terrorist and yet oh-so vulnerable and tender; a kind dad who somehow tolerates the world’s most annoying teen daughter in the world.
Off-screen he’s goofy and gregarious, and that gravelly voice is even sexier because — surprise! — he’s British. Let’s celebrate our sexiest man of 2012, shall we?
Dominating Moment: Winning the Emmy for Best Actor this year, beating out Steve Buscemi, Jon Hamm, Bryan Cranston, Michael C. Hall, and the dude who plays Lord Grantham on Downton Abbey (JK, his name’s Hugh Bonneville, thanks, Wikipedia).
Oh, and he’s the star of President Obama’s favorite show and gave him a DVD copy signed “From one Muslim to another.” Not too shabby.
Dominating on Twitter: Yes, he’s on there; yes, he’s verified; yes, he posted photos of the mustache he grew for Movember.
Best Appearances: Doing the “Gangnam Style” dance like a boss on The Jonathan Ross Show.
What We Expect From Him in 2013: Continued world domination, more making out with a crying Claire Danes, a Bryan Cranston-like film career. He’s playing Lord Capulet in the new Romeo & Juliet movie, so that’s a start, right?
