It is a truth universally acknowledged that every woman needs a hot new actor to crush on. 2013 seems to be the year of hot guys, as dozens of sexy stage actors, brooding Brits and child stars who grew up a little too well seem poised to blow up in Hollywood.
So who’s going to be the next Brad Pitt or Robert Pattinson? The next Channing Tatum or Johnny Depp? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with 20 of the hottest guys you need to know for 2013.
The only thing hotter than the actors we’ve listed (like Max Irons, Henry Cavill and Chadwick Boseman above) are their smoking careers. Most, if not all, are about to lead massive film franchises or will be at the Kodak Theater next March for the Academy Awards. Others are still percolating on television, but casting directors are salivating at the mouth to see them for big 2014 and 2015 roles.
You might not know them now, but by the end of 2013 you’ll love one or all of them.
